Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My mixer started chugging at the higher speeds, blowing out fine dust out the top of mixer
Your mixer has a build up in the motor of all the goodies you've prepared. If you feel qualified, unplug your mixer and use a DRY, stiff bristle brush to gently dislodge the particles. A dry toothpick can also be use to dislodge. Once you feel you've gotten most of the powdery gunk loose, turn the mixer upside down and tap it gently to allow all the gunk to fall out. Then plug it in, turn it on high and let the fan do it's work to blow all the stuff out. It this doesn't work, you'll need to take it to an applliance repair store to have it cleaned professionally.

It has no suction. It was fine yesterday. I washed the dirt container and the filter, let it dry and put it back in the vacuum. Today my vacuum isnt picking up any dirt and has no suction. When I took the hose out of the back, it started blowing dust and dirt out but still no suction.
Look for a place where the vacuum line has to turn in a near 90 degree turn. It's easy for it to get stopped up there. ... Vacuums
Miele S318i worked ok till I took it apart to blow really fine ceiling "popcorn" dust that got sucked by the filters. When I plugged back in started for a milli second and quit. At this point I believe the circuit board might be the fault, but I want to test motor before I go and buy the part. Can I simply run 110 to the two moter contacts to bench test? Steve
Yes, you can. ... Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide path. I thought this one might work. This one does the same thing. It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.
Your Vac probably does not have a filter installed inside the unit, that is why fine dust escapes through the vents. Remove the dirt canister/cup from the unit and you will see a filter frame behind. Possibly the filter itself is missing or wrongly i ... Hoover U5172900 Fold Away Widepath Bagless Upright Vacuum
Restrictive valve moments after starting the vac the red ball rises to the top and the machine quits sucking. I turn the machine off, the ball drops, I turn the machine on, the ball rises the machine quits sucking, I turn the machine off the ball falls, I turn the machine on........etc. What am I doing wrong? It works fine and then all of the sudden it starts the same stuff again. I thought it was because the retrieving container was getting too full or the cleaning soln container was not full e

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 mile tt2000 that works fine up to 1300W but if I crank it up higher the motor decreases and increases speed every couple of seconds. I have changed the bag and filters and done the usual cheCks for blockages but can find nothing amiss. Unusually when it is running and I block the intake it will run at full power but as soon as I clear it the motor "hunts" again. Any ideas.

I pulled the side HEPA filter and could see a fine coating of graphite like dust. Took it to a vacuum repair shop. They said the brushes were going and thus the motor was shot.

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.

Hi, I have a 29 year old Farberware A901D mixer. The speed control knob has recently started to spin without engaging the mechanism that turns on the motor.

Lux legacy vacuum runs fine and was recently serviced - yesterday the tone of the motor on the vac started a higher sounding pitch - is this a potential problem and is there anything i can do with it - thank you
You don't mention whether it was the canister or upright model, but if it sounds differnet than what it usually does, then there is a potential problem. It could be anything from a full/clogged bag to a dirty filter to a clogged hose. You can check ... Electrolux Vacuums

Not sucking We have an Oreck XL and today it is blowing out dust instead of sucking it up. I just replaced the belt and about 6 months ago, we took it to our Oreck dealer and had it rehauled. I opened it up to check all and it all looked fine. Then I tuned on the machine while unzipped and noticed that the bad does not inflate as it used to. What can I do? Thanks, Connie [email protected]

My Bissell bagless vacuum does not seem to work anymore. It will start to with a suction and then instead of picking up the dirt, it appears to blow the dirt out almost in a cloud of dust and debris from the front.
