Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Poor flow takes two cycles to brew one cup. Heater working etc. Something stuck inside inner tube? Sucking air somewhere? can it be dis assembled?


Answers :

This problem is usually caused by calcium carbonate deposits from hard water collecting in the thermal pump mechanism. The fix is to make a 1/2 pot mixture of white vinegar and cold water (about 50:50) and run through several times. Let cool off each time, and use a clean filter to catch the deposits that are removed. Finally, run several pots of cold water to wash out the vinegar taste. Hope this helps!

Hi all---I have a Dirt Devil 091020V. there was a problem with the wand where it was the only thing sucking even when it was stuck in the tube it would ****--but nothing from the vacuum end--the diverter was stuck closed I took it apart and found something stuck but in the meantime the torsion spring [I think} fell out and I don't know where it goes--so now only the vacuum works --not the overhead cleaner part.. is there a digram somewhere that can tell me where it goes--I think it might b

I have an Electrolux Lux 7000. My son sucked a small towel into the hose, which is stuck inside the hose close to the attachment end. Can this model blow expel air so I can blow the towel out?


If it does, it should have a door on the top near the back. But if not then something like a plumbers snake or long needle nose plyers may help get it out. ... Vacuums

Hello- My wand has lost a lot of it's suction. I am sure it's clogged somewhere. I cleaned everything after watching a video on U Tube, but it is still not sucking properly. My model is the Dyson DC28 Animal air muscle. I have only had it a few months. Also, I am not having any luck finding a local Dyson repair shop. I live in Pella, IA. Thank you, Kim


You do have a clog ... I feel certain. I have never worked on a Dyson. Please continue with your disassembly until you find that wad of chewing gum and cat hair and tell us how you did it.\015\012\015\012Im sure you will find a clog som ... Vacuums

Telescopic wand My wife's Electrolux Oxygen has a telescoping wand that expanded and contracted. All one had to do was slide a button and the lower tube slid inside the larger upper tube. Now the button no longer moves whatever was inside to allow the expansion/contraction to happen. How do I fix this situation? The wand assembly hardly seems to be made with repairs in mind. This method of manufacturing is annoying. Thanks, Eric

How to disassemble the brush to empty anything that might be stuck inside of the brush? The motor seems to be overheating, all belts have been checked, all airways are clear and the filter is clean. The vacuum is vibrating and releasing a burning smell, but still sucking up dirt. There is nothing stuck on the outside of the brush, but is there a way to check inside of it to see if that is where a clog is occuring?


If there's a burning smell and the belts are fine, the problem is going to be hot wires causing the insulation to melt, or the motor going bad. Discontinue use and have it checked at a repair shop. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.


The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity

I have the dyson animal. There is something stuck in the wand tube and everyting is getting caught on it. There is very little suction from the wand. How do I get the wand apart or somehow get the object stuck out of the tube? Thanks


Yes, things stuck in vacuum hoses are not always as easy to remove as one might think. Trying to push it out with something can be counter-productive, and only get the thing stuck tighter! If you have a second vacuum, you can try sucking it out the w ... Vacuums
