Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi i have a Meile cat and dog TT500 and it is shooting out dust. cannot find instruction manual to see if i have inserted filters properly, i have bought a new charcoal air filter but lid will not close properly when i put it in, has someone got a pic of how it should look, if its not the filters what could it be.

Answers :

As far as the filter, either it isn't in all of the way, or it is the wrong one as there are several different ones.
\015\012TT500 doesn't come up as a good model number, should start with a S then 3 numbers and end with an i. It is on the bottom.
\015\012As far as shooting out dust, you may have a clog in the hose, wand or the inlet by the brush roll.

It leaves dirt and fluff in the rollers not in the filter. So is not cleaning properly. There is never anf fluff at all in the filter. Also the lid does not close properly and we constantly get the 'check tank' light coming on. It leaves streaky marks across the floor and seems to leave the floor too wet (hence the streaks).

I have a DC 15 Dyson Ball Vacuum. I've removed and cleaned the filter. I can't get the lid to close properly. I don't want to force it and break something. There is some kind of a red spring loaded tab that seems to be in the way. How do I reseal the top of the vacuum?

The red tab doesn't let the lid close if the filter is not fitted correctly or the wrong filter is fitted. Many after-market filters cause this problem. \015\012\015\012Have you recently fitted a new after-market filter? ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

When removing the canister bag, the plate and spring that it slides into popped out. When I put them back in, the bag full indicator is completely red. It is a new bag and filters. I think I am not getting the plate and spring back in the canister correctly. Any instructions or pictures showing proper insertion and configuration of these? I looked in the manual and the part is only shown while bag being inserted.

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

I had used Dyson DC08 to **** out a wet car carpet. A few days later when using the V/C, there was a burning smell. Subsequently I washed the flexible hose, changed the pre-filter and post filter , but I wrongly put the pre-filter in the spot for the post filter. When the V/C was next used, there was again a burning smell and sparks. The filters were switched, but the V/C would not re-start. What shall I do?
