funny the manual doesn't list this "vac stack filter/screen' in the exploded parts list...or am I missing it??
@Fedri @John LaBarbera
Know where to purchase this and if it is made to be replaced or taken off to be thoroughly cleaned?
Yes thank you.
I was in the tank replacing the pump out screen filter surrounding it and I think I noticed a ball that looks like it could be a ball float that effectively blocks the suction from the motors so they aren't just eating water. Of course, foam is still going to cause damage if it...
Hey Ive thought about getting the wanders one as its more affordable, especially over the TMF boss filter.
In your opinion, does it provide noticeable improvement over the Mytee lint hog?
And how about the boss over wanders?
Im carrying a small container of defoamer with me too now. Took me 1.5yrs to figure out smh.
I think my new process will be to sprinkle some on the carpet before extracting and carry it with me to put in the hose as needed.
Did you mean inline filter between wand and extractor or an...
Yeah my new motors I’m rocking(sucking) again !
I wonder if I figured out how and when to use defoamer earlier if I could have made them last longer.
I think that’s one drawback to air hog is small waste tank so foam can be an issue.
FWIW, and as an appropriate reply to your^ post - my air hog is just shy of 2 years old. And, to be fair, im certain it has gotten a lot less usage than someone like you over that period due to being a new business.
For those with knowledge of the LX vac motors, specifically the airhog lx, I always had the belief that the vacs would cut-off automatically when the recovery tank got too full or when foam built up. The dealer says that ain't so, and the times the vacs 'cut-off' for me, really meant...
Im at the dealer and the one motor is bad as it no longer turns on. (Switch is good and the wire is getting power).
They also hear 'metal-on-metal' in the other motor which seems to be from moisture getting in there and causing corrosion/rust. So we will be replacing both vac motors today.
Apologize for re-directing this conversation (slightly)
But figured @Jim Davisson would be a great resource to ask the question regarding my air hog lx which runs dual lx motors inside as you know
Last 2 jobs motor 2 seems to be cutting off and when I switch it off and then back on it doesn't...
Thought I would ask in case someone electrically inclined is reading...
I have the myth Airhog LX extractor..
Past 2 jobs it seems motor 2 is 'cutting out'..
running one motor doesn't cut the mustard and probably impacting dry times.
Funny thing is, after each job I get back to the shop...
Yes! I just put winter tires on the van last week.. Literally feels like all I'm doing this January is spending money! Then she's going in for brakes on Wednesday.
Also Im real close to pulling the trigger on some new springs for the astro. She's always leaned and if im going to rely on this...
Im having the distributor wire 25' in to for the air hog and the water hog so it leaky water should no longer be a problem. Im also going to setup the 'drip loops' for extra precaution between the components and the generator.
As far as my concern with some moisture in the vacuum area...
Appreciate the help KIC...
The wiring is a Chinese fire drill in the air hog. PLUS I want to raise the concern about all the moisture inside the unit. Moisture on all kinds of electrical stuff in there.
if I fix the plug problem but moisture still remains throughout my anxiety about showing up...
Damn don’t they know they won’t be able to use the phone wtf?
And I don’t think I’d carry water tanks in the Astro...
I want to get creative and find a way to get a tm but honestly I think fixing the air hog is probably best now
This is how I’m rolling ...(trailer)
dealer told me if I replace the plugs do it inside the machine not just cut the cords outside and replace the plugs.
I tend to agree bc the unit is known for leaking right above the pigtails.
I looked inside the air hog wiring and I’m not confident I...
