Miele Vacuum Cleaners / Re: Miele extension rod collapsing
« Last post by jacqueline on November 11, 2019, 02:00:13 PM »
My button on my Miele extension tube broke so I have sent for a replacement. Now I am not able to fit it having followed the instructions as shown. Can anyone tell me if the little black button that is fixed to the metal tube, should rise above the hole? mine looks like it is broken. Any help appreciated

Yea but all the machines themselves are identical in every way, just the tools and fancy lights that differ.

I can see now why you declined my help on writing the website copy...

John Lewis donít have the full range of uprights on display IIRC.

They will try and put him into the X7 Excel, which we wrote about here: https://seboshop.co.uk/blog/sebo-x7-excel-john-lewis/

But yes, we can always put a better deal together than John Lewis.  :thumbsup:

John Lewis?

Then make your excuses and leave, and buy from the SeboShop who will price match and be able to sell you an extension hose cheaper!

Kirby Vacuum Cleaners / Re: Can you wash the Kirby G4 cloth outer bag?

The tube doesn't come off the cloth bag. Ive taken off the strap that holds it. Its sewn on the the tube.

If it is for bench based fume extraction, then i don't think it would be that good an idea.
What you are using has small fan blades therefore more directional via some small vent / pipe ?

In our workshop we use big modules (like in pc's) but bigger that run on mains, personally i don't use mine, i just softly blow the fumes away as we do not do large scale production - and we also are more directed to surface mount now anyway - so paste and oven is the call for that.

I have been using that method for low scale fumes for 36 years, and it hasn't killed me yet...

You can wash any cloth bag, because itís made of cloth, like your shirt.

Assuming youíve put a battery on it, it wonít run until it has a cyclone assembly connected to it.
9
A battery off another machine wont fit so you canít simply get a higher voltage one. And in any event putting a higher voltage through a motor will kill it instantly, even if you were able to.

What you can do is get a battery with a higher MAH. We typically use 3000 MAH ones.

Beware though with aftermarket cordless Dyson batteries that you buy online it will be a complete lottery as to the quality of them.
