Vacuum seems to have a problem
\015 Hoover tempo wide path brand new vacuum is harder to push and has lots of warm air blowing out the side filter/vent which seems unusual, suction seems weaker, too. New bag is in. Not picking up as usual.\015
Take off the bottom plate and check the inlet to see if it is clogged and make sure the belt is ok. If no clog there, then it is in the hose. If you can't figure it out and is less then 1 year old, then it is under warranty, take it in for repair along with your proff of purchase.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.
It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor, not contacting the carpeting?? I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting. Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum... Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums

No suction I've only had my vacuum for a couple of months and it seem I have a similar problem but there is no clear blockage. It seems like I don't have adequate suction that reaches the accessory hoses nor the main one. I'm not sure where to start. I've taken the darn thing apart but I can't see any obvious malfunction. Any suggestions?
If you have low suction at the end of the hose, then you either have a clog in the hose or a clogged filter. Take the hose off and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end.

Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle. None of the phillips screwdrivers we have seem to work in removing the screw that holds the handle to the vacuum. What size phillips screw driver should we be using? If the screw is stripped, how can we get it out to replace it since it is not easily accessible in the handle?
You should use a p2 size phillips. there is only one screw right in the center that holds the handle assy on. frequently that screw backs out and allows the handle to slide back and loose connection. make sure the handle is tightly pressed in and the ... Vacuums
Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward.

Eureka TRUE HEPA Whirlwind Bagless same problem seems...roller just stopped...took everything apart and turned it on just in time to see belt melt...I was able to get the end caps off both sides at first and now can't seem to get the one side. Really love this vacuum! Don't want to have to part with it!
If you are able to remove one end cap, the brush roller shaft can be removed and the other bearing is exposed for examination and removal of the hair that probably is clogging it. After cleaning and reassembly the brush roller should rotate freely. C ... Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
My Kenmore progressive vacuum is extremely loud. The airflow and suction seem to be uninhibited, but the noise is loud and frustrating.

I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way up. It hardly picks up anything at all now. I can't seem to find my instruction manual. What's the problem?
Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find ... Vacuums

Dyson vacuum I have a DC07 vaccuum. The problem I am having is that the front does not want to stay down as I vaccuum and I continuously have to keep stepping on the front to make it go back down to the floor. It seems as though there is either not enough weight in the front or possibly the unit just has to be broken in so that there is not so much resistance between the handle and the front of the vaccuum. Could there be something I did not remove or is this typical on these vaccuums?
There is some thing broken it is two plastic cogs they help the front go down and stay up you will have to get a star screw driver and there should be two screws on top and two at the b ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-
