Post on aggitator clicks and slips - Vacuums
Using a Hoover Steamvac to clean my carpets. It works fine in some areas, but others it makes a clicking noise and stops sucking water. Once I turn the vacuum off and wait a few seconds, it clicks once more and is okay to use again. Certain parts of my carpet this happens so frequently I can't vacuum.

I have a yellowMiele Vacuum,model=Electronic Air Clean Plus S3121. On the main body the part that the pipe/nozzle clicks into has a piece that has snapped off. I can see this by lifting the lid and the black plastic piece that is screwed to the inside of the lid has a piece chipped of it which means that when the nozzle is clicked into place it is completely loose. There is a black piece that clicks into the inside of the hoover into this broken part which is still ok so at the moment by linin

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.
On/off switch we have two of these vacuums at work, and both of there on/off switches dont work too well. its hard to explain, but when u normally turn it on or off theres a little resistance in the switch and you hear a click, with both of ours the switch moves freely back and forth from on to off, no resisntace, no click, and the machine doesnt stay on, or off for that matter. the switch just moves back and forth.

Roller Brush How do I install the roller brush. I didn't pay attention when I removed it and now when I attempt to vacuum my low carpet it doesn't seem to be working. The green light on the head of the vacuum goes out when I click it down to the floor. It didn't used to do that. Plus I think I smell something burning. Could the belt be broken?
Try a new belt. The ends of the brushroller are different sizes, so you can't put it in backwards. There are numbers and notches on the ends of the brushroll. These notches/numbers need to match on both sides when installing it. (probably need b ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
Vacuum smell I have a new bagless Hoover Empower Widepath. When I start to vacuum, after only about 2 minutes, it starts to smell really bad, like rubber I would say. Is it band slipping, and how do I check that out to make sure??
Your belt is slipping, it is probably stretched and slips trying to drive the brush roll. Take the bottom plate off, check the brush also, make sure the ends turn freely. The belt runs from the brush roll to the motor shaft. If you can't get to th ... Vacuums

My Bissell Proheat 12 amp is hard to push forward(whether on or off). There is a loud clicking noise when pushing forward and it ''jumps'' up on every loud click. It's OK when pulling backwards, sprays and vacuums up water. Belt appears OK. Thanks
I had this same problem and here is what solved it for me.

No suction vacuum won't pick up -- I've checked the bag, hose...and it seems to have no sucking power. The internal hose may be jammed (I vacuumed up a lot of shredded paper), but nothing as far as I can stick in fingers in. I don't have a metal coat hanger to slip down, but I'm afraid that might tear the hose and then the darn thing won't work anyway. :o(
If it is plugged, try using a tape measure, i know it sounds stupid but it will work to unplug your line and will not tear your hose.. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Central vacuum Hello, my central vacuum motor just clicks when you insert the hose into the receptacle. Is there anything I can do besides get a new motor or unit?
If the central vacuum is clicking that means that the circuit breaker is working and trying to get the motor to run but the motor is not functioning. This means it's time for either a new motor or a new unit. Unfortunately there's really no way aroun ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks
You may have something in your brush bearing that does not allow the brush to turn easily thus stretching the belt. Chris ... Hoover U6455-900 WindTunnel Vacuum
The belt keeps slipping off. I bought a new one and it too slips off after about a half hour of vacuuming.
Check the motor shaft for loosness. when the bearings wear out and fail, the motor shaft will not be strait and the belt will ride off. also check for alignment and inspect the brushroll for proper installation, free rotation, and non melted endcaps. ...
