Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Losing power on a carpet attachment

\015 My Majestic Filter Queen vacuum loses power when I use the carpet attachment. It seems to start and stop but when I use the other attachments I am not losing power. So I am assuming that there is a problem with the motor of the carpet attachment. Can you comment on this?\015

Answers :

Does the motor stop or the brush roll? If it is the brush roll, then replace the belt. If the motor is stopping, then it could be the motor or the cord for the opwer head.

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

I have the same problem with intermitant power, however, it does not make sense that the problem is in the upper powerhead (which is what a repair guy told me) because-- when I use the other attachements it is fine. The problem only occurs when I use the carpet (big)attachment so that the roller will not turn. Couldn't it just be in the area where the bottom of the handle attaches into the carpet attachment?
