Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Getting a Eureka central vac cloth bag back in after cleaning
\015 We have a Eureka mega boss built-in vacuum installed 1994 - took out the cloth bag to clean it, but can't get it back in. It has a flexible band and loop, and there is a groove on the inside of the cannister - but we can't seem to get it ailgned properly.any suggestions?\015
I found that if you start by making sure that the tab that you pull to remove the filter is in a spot where you can reach it next time you need to remove it. Next, put the filter in over the inlet spoutand push it up to the white "stops" then gently push all the way around - you should be able to feel a groove around the edge of the filter.
The easiest way is probably to take the unit off the wall turn it upside down. This will give you some leverage. I would not try to get the ring in all at once, but leave a little out and then that piece that is left out you might need to bend it a little to get it in. There really is no trick that is why I am not a big fan of filtered central vacs. I prefer true cyclonic.

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta
You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

I have a Kenmore central vacuum cleaner model number c107 34601. We have emptied the bucket and shaken the filter out to clean it. There is a filter that is filthy so we shook it out into a bag but the cleaner still seems to not have great suction.

My eureka central vac power brush turns off when pushing forward than back on when pushing back. Ever seen this before?

Dust....dust....dust Hello, I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing.
