Now is the time to test the group of fittings that connects to the right of the solenoid. This is really bad because you have to take off the whole back panel.
Well I took off the panel to remove the solenoid and I had to take a picture (second picture) what was behind the panel. (The solenoid was being held on by 2 screws.) So I took off the group of fitting and they look totally clogged with rust. The barbs are the same way. I believe the only way to fix this problem is to order a new part from Grainger.
I actually wired the weep system directly from the weep mizer to the solenoid, bypassing the Coleman unit (just in case).
One of my vacuum timers did not have power so I checked it out and something had blown the breaker. I checked the vacuum motors and one smelled like melting plastic and the other smelled fine. So I replaced the stinky motor and everything worked great!
I know one thing about opening a Coleman vacuum with a drill and that’s that you will not be doing it with a battery power drill. What a pain! Only 3-4 more to go. Actually Greg drove by today and I am going to try some of his suggestions first: TNT, jackhammer or wrecking crane.
Wow that sucks! My Abus lock key broke in the Coleman vacuum today. What makes it worse is I only had one key and I have 3-4 more locks keyed the same. Man I am stupid and no I do not have the key number. Anyone have any hints on drilling out Abus locks without keys in them let me know.
Filled up the Coleman fragrance vacuums today which is always fun. My favorite thing is getting the fragrance on my hands and it will never come off!
One of my Coleman vacuums was not working right. I checked the amount of dirt it collected, which was not much but I emptied it anyway. I checked the motors and they seemed fine. Then I checked the vacuums bags, which I forgot about. Problem solved!
I filled up one of my fragrance vacuums today, which is always fun. What I like best is when you get some of the fragrance on your hands.
Did you know that Coleman timers have to be set correctly to work correctly? I set up the timer as “fragrance” for my fragrance vacuum and I just could not figure out why it would not work right. Finally I started over and saw “fragvac” and selected that and completed my mission of replacing a bad timer.
