DYson DC07 not sucking properly when in upright mode. I have tried cleaning out pipes etc and even tried an old motor section I had in garage (replaced once under warranty as kept cutting out and they left old motor section here). Even the old motor section had same prob so this suggests its something in the rest of the vacuum cleaner (whats left after you have lifted off the green motor section and dust collection area if you see what I mean? Any advice weclome please.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

I was vacuuming the vent in the bottom of the fridge. I must have picked something because the motor got wildly noisey. I cleaned out hoses, etc. There is no suction. I can see the blades of the motor and they are not turning around. Model U4269-930 Series B.72. Can I get at the motor to see if something is keeping the blades from turning?

My bissell model 18Z6 has developed a loud noise and vibration when the brush is running. I have removed the brush assy and cleaned all the hair, etc but still the noise. I ran the brush motor with the belt disconnected and all seemed ok, but of course there was no load on the motor. I suspect a problem with the brush assy bearings or axle or both but I hate to just throw parts at the problem. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am losing suction and it sounds as if there is a leak in the vacuum(I hear air rushing around). There is also a high pitched noise. Dyson dc07. Can there be leaks in the gaskets where you clean hoses and filter? are they replaceable. Does the noise suggest the bearings are going in the motor?Is it worth getting fixed?

I have a Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner and slowly the spinning portion of the vacuum ceased to work. We checked for hair, etc. that might be caught but it is all clean. We also checked the filter within the ball portion of the vacuum. Any suggestions would be great!

Hi Antonia. I assume the spinning part is the brush roller. If so, you have a broken or stretched belt. I am not too familiar with the Dyson. I would be interested to know your progress so I can learn also. Thanks Chris ... Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?

Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full.
