Chances are that any good power tool project is going to make a mess that a vacuum will clean up, and when a vacuum needs repairs or service (just like any machine does), chances are that a power tool will help to fix it.
Because vacuums, power tools, and other machines often appear around the same projects and places, it just makes sense to put the parts and accessories for all that equipment in the same convenient place as well, under the roof of our warehouse. This way, eReplacementParts.com customers can save on time and shipping costs by ordering the parts they need for all the machines that power their lives.
With the launch of Dirt Devil parts and Shop-Vac parts on our site, we’d like to give our customers a heads-up on the most common parts replacements and repairs that vacuums experience.
The great news about vacuum repair and parts replacement is that they’re usually easy and inexpensive to perform.
Most-commonly replaced vacuum parts:
- vacuum filters
- vacuum hoses
- vacuum belts
- vacuum wheels
- vacuum nozzles and attachments
One-use vacuum filters are the most common vacuum replacement parts by a long shot, but replacing a filter in your vacuum should be done with just as much care and precision as any other machine part replacement.
Vacuum owners often run into problems when a similar-but-mismatched filter is installed in their vacuum, like the problem of escaping dust. It is very important to match a vacuum’s replacement filter exactly to its model number.
Part of accurate filter matching has to do with the kind of vacuum filter that your vacuum takes.
Vacuum filter types include:
Vacuum collection filter bags.
Vacuum cartridge filters.
Vacuum disc filters.
Vacuum cloth filters, and
Vacuum foam filters; also called pre-filters and filter sleeves.
Many of these filter types are also available in wet, dry, and wet/dry varieties. HEPA certified and hypoallergenic filters are also on the market!
Visit our Shop-Vac Filters page and Shop-Vac Accessories pages to find filters and accessories for your Shop-Vac model. Find the Dirt Devil vacuum accessories you’re looking for by entering your Dirt Devil vacuum model number in our website’s search tool.
These common vacuum replacement parts that we’ve listed correct many of the most common vacuum operation problems.
Common vacuum breakdowns:
* Blowing dust-
Dust blowing out of the vacuum tank is usually caused by a mis-matched filter and is easily corrected.
* Won’t start-
Usually cased by a bad switch, cord, or vacuum motor. A quick parts replacement solves this one.
* Loss of suction-
In most cases, a new hose or filter will take care of suction issues.
* Hard to push-
If your vacuum is hard to push, it’s probably because the brushroll is not spinning. And if the brushroll isn’t spinning, then you probably need a new belt.
The point is that even the most frustrating vacuum repair issues can be quickly fixed with the right parts, and now you can depend on the best, most accurate replacement parts ordering and shipping service to deliver the vacuum parts you need right to your home, eReplacmentParts.com.
