Coleman Shampooer Problem – Update


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.

Vacuum problem


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!

My bags?


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!

Coleman Timers


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.
