My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again.

Vacuum sucks up dirt and expells it back onto the carpet as I am using it. I have replaced the bag and took the bottom off to clean - even cleaned up the area where the dirt should go to make sure it was not clogged.


Good chance the tube from the base up the handle is clogged. Try removing the bag and look at the exit, that is where most clogs on this unit occur. Look for hair, string, etc. If clog is not there, then may be in the tube or at the base swivel unit ... Oreck XL2600 Vacuum

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help? I am so close to chucking this one and buying somet


Usually when there is no suction, one cause is the lid to the recovery tank is not on all of the way in the back. Also if you have that foam filter on the underneath side of the recovery tank lid, it needs to have a 1/4 in or so gap from the top of ... Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

We just used our bissell pro heat 25A3/64D9 series and the top half of the handle is not secure. Infact it flies off in my hand as im cleaning the carpet and it almost hit me in the face!!!
