My vacuum cleaner works, all but the "foot". It turns off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I've done this and removed all hair, strings, etc. It still turns off automatically, while the main vacuum and hose remain on. What else can I do?
Please post back with a brand and advise more info, however , I assume this is a canister vac with hose and `power head``. Often a power head brush roll will build up hair and thread which travels and winds up at the end of the brush wher ... Vacuums

Let's try this again. The main vacuum and hose works fine, the "foot" does not. When I turn it on, it shuts off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I did this and removed all hair, strings, etc., Still won't work. Please respond. The last post took over 30 minutes with no response.
Sounds like you have hair or carpet buildup in the roller and it is not freely rotating and you are getting an error. If there is no buildup, then roller bearings may be frozen up, or the unit has a faulty capacitor and is not going to work due to el ... Vacuums
Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

I have just purchased two (2) Electrolux Nimble vacuum cleaners. Not one, but both, straight out of the box, the beater bars will not run. It turns on, select carpet, and lower the handle, the red light to check beater bar/or filter lights up. You can reset the light by unplugging the unit, then plugging it back in, but with same results. Now the kicker, if you take out the handle, select carpet, lower the body by the carry handle, it will run and operate correctly, however, as soon as you r
Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum 'check brush' light on

When I flip the switch on my sebo x1 upright, a red light comes to the brush and bag icons. However, I cleaned out the hose and checked to make sure there is no obstruction from the brush to the hose also, or from the hose to the bag. It is clear that juice is coming to the vacuum, but there is no sign of life except the two red lights.
Thanks for contacting fixya. You should pull out the bag and reset the machine. You should take all the user replaceable items. And turn it on. You will get lot of errors. Then turn the machine off. Put back all the accessor ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?
