I fought the vacuum cleaner and I won



This is the second time in a few months the vacuum cleaner belt broke....


I went to the vacuum cleaner shop and I bought both belts (one for the self propelled part) figured if I have to change one might as well do both.


well the first time it took about three hours and a lot of @@##** words but I got them changed..... we don't have any close neighbors and the dogs ran outside..LOL


Last week the belt broke again....so my husband stopped they said oh, well we have a heavier duty belt..it is much better.....


AARGGGH why did they not give me that choice the first time???? for a couple more dollars..........


I have another vacuum to use (but this is "my favorite)


Well this am I changed the belt AGAIN this time only took about 45 minutes.. and probably more screws taken out than needed (was very careful to put them in little piles) and hoped I could remember where they went.....and while I had it apart cleaned out inside underneath....


well I got all the screws back..no left over ones (relief) and plugged it in and held my breath and turned it one.........YEAH


I have just vacuumed the house...and it is working as good as new...... cleaning.gif

Congratulations on getting the vacuum put back together right and working.


This type of job has been beyond me since my stroke eight years ago. Before my stroke I could assemble anything. Only in the last six months have I successfully put anything together (a cookbook rack and a shower caddy). I was very very proud of myself.


Having a stroke can really scramble your brain in its ability to follow the directions, put everything together in the right order and not have left over screws.


Congrats again! Happy vacuuming.
