Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Not sucking. motor works.filter cleaned. what could be the reason?

Answers :

Many vacuums have more than one filter, check the manual to locate the other filters take them out and clean or replace them.

You could have something clogged in a hose or the path to the bag/canister. It sounds like this might be the problem if you are not getting any suction. Check all your airways the dirt travels to find the clog. If you can't get to some places, you may need to take it to a repairman.

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

I have a NUTONE central vac, when I turn on the power, It sounds like its grinding glass and doesnt suction. Could it be that broken glass got caught in the motor and all I need to do is clean it, or is this the sound of a failed motor?

More likely it's something in the fan. However, I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop to make sure. Something could have got into the fan system and is making a racket, but the motor itself won't crunch up glass. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809.

However, when I turned the vacuum on, it makes a horrible noise like I'm sucking up rocks. What have I done wrong in putting it back together? It seemed simple...
