Having problems with your Vacuums ?



Answers :

First thing would be to check the bag as it may be full. If the bag is full the machine will overheat quickly. Also check the internal filter in the bag cavity to make sure that isn't dirty.
\015\012Next, check there's no blockage in your floor tool or in your telescopic rods.
\015\012As for the hose: grab a marble and see if that will go all of the way through the hose. Marble goes through = no (big) blockage. Marble won't go through = blockage.
\015\012There possibly could be a blockage in the bend/handle. Grab a bendy coat hanger and undo it, make a small hook on the end, and use it to stick up into the handle to check for a blockage.
\015\012To check from the other end get a broom handle and stick that in at the machine end of the hose. If you find a blockage, get the coat hanger, stick it in, and rotate it gently around and hopefully hook whatever the blockage is with the hook on the end.
