Having problems with your Vacuums ?
I have a Russell Hobbs Power Cyclonic Pets 2000W vacuum and having cleaned out all the parts I can find the suction is almost nothing. It has happened once before but cleared after emptying out all the filter areas. This time it won't. I have only had the cleaner for approximately 4 months so pretty disappointed.
can you suggest anything?
I have exactly the same problem, has anyone given you advice?

Bissell lift off vacuum about 4yrs old. Extremely noisy. OK until before Christmas but getting worse every time it's used. Washable filters washed, HEPA filter replaced. brush bar cleaned of every scrap, hose empty,everything that can be cleared has been. Noise high pitched, screeching and can only bear to use it for a few seconds at a time. Suction OK.
Sounds like a bad motor bearing. If it is, then you would have to replace it. Could be the brush roll, did you check the ends to make sure they turn easily? ... Vacuums

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

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

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

Filter I bought this Hoover a few years ago-- just now about to use it first time. I cannot find my user's manual and don't know how to change the filter-- or to clean it or whatever I am supposed to do with it. Also, there is a handle on one side of the unit that seems to be attached to an empty chamber or canister kind of thing. It looks like it should pull out, but it does not budge. I really would like to have a manual, but can't seem to find one. Is there a similar model that is still

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

Poor suction absolutely loved the machine when I first got it. I have dogs so it is getting a work out. however, the suction isn't as great as when I first got it. I have cleaned the washable filter and empty the cylinder after every vacuum. When I use the hose, the suction just isn't there. anything else I can do?

Clogged Bissell After debris clears the brush part, it gets clogged at the point of entrance into the machine, barely anything makes it through the filter and into the canister. Clogs immediately after a few swipes of the carpet. Had vacuum for almost 3 years.
Something must be in the hose causing a clog, take the hose off and if suction is good where the hose hooks up, then there is something caught inside the hose. ... Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum
Hi. DC14 not running. Repeated pressing of the switch occasionally produces a split second whirr from the motor. I had been picking up plaster dust for some time but stopping regularly to clear out filters and 'the little tubes.' The switch is fine. I cannot see how to get at the motor. Thanks , Chris

My versatility electrolux vacuum is 2 years old and it has lost its suction, i have replaced the filters and checked every hosing area i have access to, it seems to all be clear. I dont know what else to do, it has a higher pitched whinnig sound when it is on

The heated solutions only sprays out to the floor in a 3 inch area. It takes a long time to clean the floor with only 3 inches available. Are there some nozzles somewhere on the machine that I need to clear out? If so, how do I access the nozzles?
There are two nozzles (either red or white) on the unit located behind brush. Use an old toothbrush to clean them off and that should resolve the spray issue. ... Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum
I bought a Kenmore canister vacuum, model 116, in April 2007. This morning, the sound of the motor suddenly began to deepen, and I began to lose suction. Normally, if something is clogging the hose, the motor will wind up to a higher pitch, not a lower one. The filters are clean, the bag is empty, and I can't detect anything lodged in the hose. If this were a car's engine, I would say it's "lugging down". Any pointers?
Okay, bear with me. Is it possible you have a suction adjustment, dial somewhere on vac. Check and see and if it does, be sure it's all the way up. Also, try removing hose and run a broom handle fr. one end to the other...BUT be careful not to stretc ... Vacuums

Lost suction I've only used this vacuum a few times, it's practically brand new. Now, one I turn it on, it sounds fine, and the hose feels as if it's getting some suction, but it's not strong enough to actually **** things up from the carpet into the canister. I have completely emptied the canister and bought a new filter. Nothing seems to help.
