My new vaccum wont pick up cat hair
\015 My new vaccum a hoover (bagged wind tunnel - Series Q120) Model UHS0005 just doesn't perform well. It won't pick up cat hair or feathers no matter how many times I vaccum back and forth. The beater brush only cycles when I am pushing the vaccum forward rather than constantly. So it seems to only turn at the rate that I can push the vacuum, which isn't very fast. I was wondering if that is part of the problem.\015
I would return this vacuum while it is still under warranty.

Have a hoover windtunnel platinum. I have changed the bag ( hepa Q bag) but the bag light wont reset. so the vaccum wont turn on. I have unpluged it and let it set for a while with the new bag in and repluged it in. I have checked the brushes and it is all clean but it will not reset. This only the second bag so it is a new machine I should not be having problems. Is there some sore of reset button I can hit.

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

No suction i have a hoover supreme wind tunnel vac and its relatively new and the suction, well......sucks. It wont pick anything up! I am extremely frustrated! I picked up a ball of fuzz off the carpet and held it under the vacuum and it still wouldn't **** it up. I then shoved the fuzz up INTO the vacuum. It fell right back out. I may as well not even vacuum. Please help!

Bissell 37604 Bagless Upright Vacuum. Hose keeps clogging every time I vacuum. Is there a way to prevent this? I am ready to buy a new vacuum, but it does do a great job picking up hair...until it clogs. It clogs at top of hose. Could the hose be kinked? It does not look like it.
That is a defect in the design of that style of vacuum. I went back to my old vac because I got so tired of having to unstop it. The sharp turns in the hose and the molded plastic causes it. Find one without the turns. ... Bissell 37604 Lift-Off Pet Bagless Upright / Canister Vacuum CleanerVacuum
The flexible brush on my unit does not spin. It did 'by accident' pick up a cat poo that didnt make the litter tray while I was out, (and it happily spread it all over the house and skirting boards). I cleaned the unit, removed the base and wiped everything clean. I've unscrewed the flexible brush and cleaned underneath it but it still wont spin. Any suggestions?

Red "bag is full" indicator shows even though new bag has been put in and vacuum cleaner wont pick up. Also floor adjustment does not adjust. This is for a powerforce model 3522 series
The red light tell you that it is sensing a full bag. But a clog in the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll will also do this. ... Vacuums
Hello, I have a Riccar 8000. The belt works, the bar spins, and it will **** things up. However, it will not pick up threads and dog hair or anything from the carpeting. Mu husband took the bottom off and there were a couple of small parts on the plate. We have no idea where they belong. Could not see them in the photos in the manual. Could it possibly need a new roller? Any help would be most welcome. Thank you! Mary Simon

Miele cat and dog vaccum - why does the filter keep popping out - it is new!
The vaccum is not picking up like it did when it was new you have to go over the carpet over and over
Make sure the canister is all the way in and latched (yes this has bit me in the rear a few times). If you grab the handle to the canister (w/o bushing the button) and give it a slight pull and it comes loose, then it was not latched. Push it fully ...

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair. This works well but obviou

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1
