FragraMatics Vacuum Shampooer Brush

Nobody is going to be stealing your FragraMatics shampooer brush unless they cut the hose.  I actually think this is a little ridiculous.  You have to take out the screw which you really don’t need (There is no way the hose is going anywhere).  Then I guess you have to remove the outside metal piece (second picture).  Then the hose needs to be unscrewed from the nut that it is mounted in.  Oh and that is not fun!

I Blew a Fuse!

My FragraMatics Vacuum blew a fuse and I had to replace it.  It uses a ABC-10BC3 which is a 10amp 250v fuse.

Have I ever mentioned that the FragraMatics Vacuums are a pain to work on?  6 screws to take off the top and they use security screws?   Jim Coleman’s Vacuums only have 1 and no security screw.  I really do like the security screw, but 6?    At least it could be 4 maybe 3?

Hamilton credit card acceptor problem – Update

To get the Hamilton credit card acceptor out of the unit there are 4 bolts that hold it into the acw-5.  Unbolt them and the credit card acceptor comes right out.  Then remove 2 screws and the acceptor comes off the holder.  I then mounted the new acceptor and reversed the process, tested my credit card and everything worked great!  Now I can accept credit cards with my acw-5.

Am I cheap or practical? You decide!

My Weep Mizer was giving me the wrong temperature so I went to Lowes to purchase a thermometer.  I really wanted to purchase an ir thermometer but my cheap / practical side made me purchase the $5 digital thermometer instead of the ir for $64.98.

My Weep Mizer says it was 43 degrees and the cheap thermometer said it was 38 degrees.

Greg told me that there was a screw on the censor to adjust the temperature on the Mizer.  I decided to just adjust the start temperature by 5 degrees!

How not to remove a pulley?

So I purchased the Harbor Freight “3 Jaw Puller Set” (32184) today for $12 and proceeded to put together all the pullers.  I installed the correct puller then broke the pulley.

I guess I needed to remove the pen thing first (2nd picture with arrow)?  Not really sure how to remove it though.  I already removed the screw but not quite sure how to slide the piece out?
