Thumbnail Image of Download Thor Automagic Washer-Dishwasher Mechanism Service Manual
Here is a comprehensive manual on servicing the "Sealed-Type" washer/dishwasher mechanism in all Thor Automagic washer/dishwashers.

In May 1949, Thor introduced its sealed type mechanism in the Model 222 Spinner Washer, starting with serial number 347420, and also made the sealed unit available for replacement purposes on previous models (200, 222 and 250). This mechanism is the result of years of research and exhaustive laboratory tests ... all of which have proven very satisfactory in every respect through practical experience of thousands of Thor sealed mechanisms in home use. Simple in design, yet fundamentally rugged, the Thor sealed mechanism requires little service. However, where moving parts are present, there is always the possibility of a mechanical failure ... but where service is needed, repairs or adjustments are simple and the mechanism is readily accessible.

Here is a dealer sheet showing the exact procedure to demonstrate this, what materials and equipment are required to set it up and promotional materials available to go with this demonstration. A very fun read for sure!

Thumbnail Image of Download Hoover Portable and Slimline Vacuum Cleaner Service Instructions
Introduced in 1963, the Portable and Slimline machines were the first new "canister" style cleaners to be introduced in nearly 10 years. The Portable and Slimline cleaners are very similar machines in many ways, using the same motor. The motor is also essentially the same as the motor in a Dial-A-Matic, however the Portable and Slimline have a third fan in place of the belt-pulley. The Portable carried all of its attachments, and the Slimline was often advertised as one of Hoover's least-expensive cleaners. These service instructions cover motor removal and disassembly, as well as replacing the switch and servicing the cord-reel. Hose repair and the rug/floor nozzle are also discussed. These service instructions are from the late 70's, however they retroactively apply to all models going back to 1963. Also included is a parts diagram for the model 2100, the first of the Portable cleaners.
