I'd been looking for a used Kirby vacuum cleaner for some time. The Dirt Devil I've had since 2000 just doesn't do well with what happens in my house. Too many indoor cats, mixture of carpet and hardwood. I just can't buy a new Kirby or "nice" vac and don't want to spend the $ to get a new department store vacuum cause it would get beaten half to death over here.
So, I found one at a local thrift store. It's a Dual Sanitronic 50 purchased for the princely sum of $10. Needs a little work, like some cleanup, a new belt, and a new zipper on the bag. Sounds like the bearings need to be greased as well.
Trouble I'm having is finding much helpful information on repairing these vacs. An owners manual would be kind of nice as well, but so far, no luck.
So, Foosters, can anyone out there be of assistance? Any advice would be appreciated.
