Every time I try to vacuum my apartment with my Dirt Devil Featherlite bagless vacuum, it shuts off before I have finished one or two rooms. I then have to wait 30 minutes before continuing. I had the vacuum for 2 months before exchanging it and it is doing the same thing with my new one. It seems to happen after the first time I empty the cannister. Any ideas?
Your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck. ... Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum
I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage
If the motor is running, there should be suction. Possible problems depend on whether it's a canister or upright and are:\015\012A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out ... Eureka Vacuums
Does not vacuum effectively. It smells like it is burning. I have only had this one year and hardly use it. When I brought it to a local vacuum repair place, he wanted to sell me another one, and, of course, wanted to trade mine towards another.
Miele vacuums are famous for having hair and carpet fibers getting caught in the roller bearings. That can cause a bad smell. The motors in Mieles are very well built and I have a hard time believing that the suction motor is going bad in 1 year. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum
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
VACUUM REPAIR I have a Hoover Savvy upright, windtunnel, bag/bagless vacuum (model U8150-900). The Handle Release Foot Pedal - Part #38434026 broke soon after purchase but I finally found a source to replace this item. The problem is that now that I have the repair part I cannot figure out how to remove the old pedal and install the new one. The housing appears to be one piece of solid plastic. Any ideas, PLEASE! Peter
There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you g ... Vacuums

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?
Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

Suction problem I have a Hoover Widepath Fold Away, 12 amp motor vacuum cleaner and the problem I am having is every time I vacuum, the vacuum gets clogged up with carpet. I am probably only able to do one stroke then it gets clogged and I have to stop and unclog it or it spits it out on the carpet. This is very frustrating and I don't get much vacuuming done. Please can you help me. Thank you. Gwen email is [email protected]

I need to change out the short hose on the underside of my older Dyson DC 07 Animal (Light Purple). It is the one less than a foot long on the underside which is attached on one end to the main body of the vacuum(I was able to remove this one) and the top of the upper soleplate. The latter one seems to be glued or otherwise permanently attached.Any assistance you could give me on this would be greatly appreciated....Thanks
Hello Cynthia,\015\012\015\012It's not glued, but it can be a little difficult to remove. You need to twist and pull at the same time and it should pull off. If it's being stubborn, squirt a little bit of WD40 / penetrating fluid where th ... Vacuums
Difficulty to operate a vacuum cleaner on Smartstrand. I have a Miele which is a great vacuum cleaner. But it cannot move smoothly over this carpet. One's back is under stress trying to vacuum this carpet. The carpet is thick and luxurious and won't rot but it is hell to vacuum.
I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

I bought a fantom vacuum on HSN about 9 years ago.Whan it was delivered the first one was broken so they sent a second one.tThat one also was cracked on covering for brush. I called and they told me they were no longer available,so I kept that one,since it would cost me shipping to return.The back right side wheel evenually cracked and fell off.I was able to put it back on and it would stay for a few weeks or so.It now has a large piece of plastic that has broken off the wheel where the bolt fit
The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9. How do I find a replacement for the other belt, the one which directly drives the beater bars? By the way, this vacuum has great suction, but otherwise is far inferior to my previous Panasonic vacuums. The cheaper models aren't a good buy--stick with the more expensive models.

Rainbow SE I turned the vacuum on and it worked to do one room Then I shut it off to wait until my husband got of his call. I realized that their was cloggage in the vacuum part that vacuums the carpet and unclogged it. I then tried to turn on and it was dead. I have the water filled just above the stick.
The clog may have over heated the motor, usually if you unplug it then after little while, try it again. If it still won't go, does the separator turn easily or is it bound up and won't turn. Take it off and see if the motor will run(without water) ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old. For quite some time now when ever we use the vacuum the vacuum motor will shut off nafter about 5 min. of use. We then need to let it sit for awhile and then we can run it again for another 5 min. The bag has been change. Any one have any ideas how to fix this?
I suspect that you have a restriction. The motor sounds like the thermal break is stopping the motor before damage, due to heat.\012You must witness that the entire suction and discharge side are clear. This is not always very easy, but necessa ... Kenmore 34612 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Can the two inlet pipes be connected to one line? The central vacuum I have is probably from 1993/4. It has one exhaust pipe and two inlet pipes. It was initially under my stairs. I would like to move it and have in fact moved it to the garage but am now fitting the pipes. I would like to join the two pipes that were previously going to the two inlets into one pipe. Can I do it? Also would I then join the wires? Would I put a plate on the other inlet? THANKS. It is a SMART president's choice vac

I have a Filter Queen Majestic canister vacuum cleaner. At the end of the wand, a button to release the attachement not only broke, but also one eyehole on the wand where one nipple on the button falls into. So therefore a new button isn't going to fix the wand because there isn't a hole on one side of the area where the button falls in place for a nipple to secure the button in place. IS THERE A REPLACEMENT PART FOR A NEW SECTION OF THE WAND WHERE THE RELEASE BUTTON IS SECURED IN PLACE THAT I C

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
Hi. On some models, one switch controls all of the power. Your issue, which is no working switch is almost certainly a blown triac on the circuit boar ... Vacuums

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat
It was overheated that is why it worked downstairs after cooling off. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum
When we turn on the vacuum, the canister falls open. The clips holding the canister in place do not seem to hold the canister tightly which I'm sure that it did in the past. The clips do not look bent, but every time we turn on the vacuum the intense pressure blows the canister open only remaining attached the the rest of the vacuum by one clip
Check filter and make sure it is kept clean at regular intervals. Possibly worn out clip retainers on cannister side due to excessive pressure build up. Do not force closure unless pressure is back to normal. May crack cannister or damage unit beyond ... Hayden Industries SuperVac 6000 Central System Vacuum
