I thought I had fixed my problem but I did not it still leeks. One of my two royal handvacs, I call them the twins, one of the inner seals where you connect it bag to the machine has now sprung a leak. Does anyone know if you can still the a that seal replaced?

I realize that I have two and reall only need to use one, but would like to get it fixed if possbile. Or does some of you have an idea what I can fix it with.

One more, can the bearings in these handvacs be replaced?

I would appreciate some help, thanks,

Although Royals are kind of a specialty to me, I have very little experience with the hand vacs. However, I think the bag gasket should be easy to replace and readily available at your Royal dealer.
As for the bearings, I've never changed them on a hand vac, but I do know they need to be oiled regularly just like the ones on the uprights. You'll need to remove the bag to get to the rear bearing, and remove the handle to get to the front. Hope this helps.

Either you need to change your vacuum bag or you forgot to LOG-IN?
