Who would guess that if you leave a pumping unit unused (for 2 1/2 years) a solenoid might get clogged up. Actually, I only had one clogged solenoid which had a clump of dried up chemical clogging the spring.
Well, I finally moved my new / used self serve equipment from my house that I purchased over 2 and a half years ago. Now I need to hook the stuff up.
It took a little while (November 23rd, 2005 http://cwguy.com/?p=80) but Jim Coleman himself fixed my shampoo tank that was leaking (Disclaimer: I am not really sure if Jim actually fixed my vacuum). To my understanding, it was actually the distributors fault that it took over 2 years to fix, but the last 2-3 months of it was my fault. But, I got my vacuum fixed under warranty. YEA!
I believe the customer has to pay for the shipping of the vacuum but they were supposed to ship it on a Coleman truck when they did their drop off (which is only every couple months, but it would be free). I am very happy I got the vacuum back after I thought maybe they lost it.
So my circular fluorescent light on my Jim Coleman vacuum was burnt out and the ballast was broken. So what should I do? Well, what about installing 2 compact fluorescent lights? I thought it was a good idea. My only problem after I installed the lights was that the lights staying on all the time and when the vacuum is turned on the lights go off, any ideas?
