Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin

Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

No Suction I get great suction in the hose, but when I plug the hose back into the unit, there is no suction and the air flow indicator line goes completely red. I've changed the bag and filters. I took the small panel off the back and made sure there is no clog, and took the hose off to make sure there was no clog there. Still no suction. Please help.

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But

Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum

My Oregon Scientific BAR888 has 5 windows, 1. temperature, 2. humidity, 3. mb/hPa or inHg (switch at the back), 4. bars showing pressure changes over 24 hours, and 5. time/date. Window 3 gives an option to set something between 0 and 2500. Oregon say they only have one set of instructions for the BAR888 but they do not match my instrument as there is nothing included for my window 3. Trouble is I don't know what the 0 to 2500 relates to and therefore don't know what to set it at.(My model does n

My dyson has two gears as it were! One for normal suction and the other for deeper cleaning. There used to be a real difference in the performance between the two options, also the noise changed when you swithched from one to the other. This no longer occurs. I have taken it apart according to your instruction, cleaned all the various bits but still no luck. The cat fur is still clearly visible despite my best efforts. Can you please help!!!!

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?

I don't use it that often but a short time after I'd bought it it has started give inaccurate readings in terms of weight or no weight readings at all and just gives me the 'Err' message.

Kenmore upright vac model 33922 - good suction but developed loud whining noise after accidentally vacuuming room without bag. Added bag and changed both filters. Still makes noise. How can I stop noise?
