Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My 88 year old mother bought a Dirt Devel DHC001 - has been used twice but it looks blocked and has no suction but there is suction at the pipe end if I take it off. I have opened the red end and emptied out but there seems to be dust in the rear part and I have no idea how to get it out.

Mystery part Bissell 1699-P. I removed the top cover and a part came tumbling out (from the rear of the machine - towards the handle area). I have no idea were this part belongs. I have a schematic of the cleaner but I can not locate the part on it. I tried to copy and paste a picture of the part but that isn't working so I will attempt to discribe the part: There is nothing stampted on the part that I can see. It is plastic(white), 2" long, 3/16" in diamater. One end is U shaped (u-shape is 1/4

I have the Eureka Whirlwind upright vacuum. All of a sudden there is no suction- the hose has suction but not main part. I have no idea- but the brush part is not turning??? should I get a new vacuum or is this an easy fix? thanks!!!!!

If the belt isn't turning then it has snapped. Check the top of the hood for two or three crosshead screws; two at the front and one under neath by the left hand side if looking at the upright from the front. Its easy to fix if you take your ti ... Eureka WhirlWind Litespeed 5844 Upright Vacuum

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

I have bought new Hoover bags on two occasions. The first spares I bought were the Xxxl variety and I didn't think they fitted that well. The next spares I bought were the type g megafilt. I still feel like they do not fit that well and the suction power on the vacuum is not as good. I'm I buying the correct replacements? I followed the guidelines on the Hoover bags the vacuum came with. These were printed as the right bags to buy. I only have the vacuum around a year and thought it was brillian

No Suction My two year old Kenmore Progressive stopped working in January. The guy at the Sears service center convinced me that buying a new one would be cheaper than getting it fixed. So I bought the exact same model and now this one has given out in the exact same way! I'm so confused. When I press on, it lights up and makes the whirring noise. Everything seems to be working but there is no suction anywhere. Not in the main part or the hose and there's no "cyclone effect" in the chamber. All

Try looking within the vacuum to see where the suction is getting stuck at. You may have to do some disasselbmeing but this is a manufacturers problem. You should also try to speak to the manager at the support and make a big dispute until you get yo ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I accidentally vaccuumed up some wet items with my James so the white cloth filter became wet and suction was lost. It was making a sort of vibrating noise as if there was something stuck in the tubes. I have bought a new white filter but still have no suction. Any ideas?

I have a Polti Vaporetto household steam cleaner that I bought 16 years ago. I haven't used it for about 10 years because the connection between the steam er and the attachments doesn't work properly and it is difficult to use. The shop where I bought it no longer sells them and can't get them fixed anymore. I'm about to ditch it, but thought I would have another go at using it. (It was very expensive). Now I can't get the safety cap off so I can't fill it or test it. Any ideas on what I can do

I have the Dyson Animal and I just bought it in January and my hose does not work. Mine you pull the hard part out and once it reaches the end it will click off of the top of the vacuum. I cannot pull it out. It is stuck.

Dyson have a two year warranty, they are a really good company and I would recommend calling them and asking them to fix the problem. Better that than trying to do it yourself and you end up breaking it and then invalidating the warranty. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas? I bought an Oxygen Ultra a few years ago, but I don't like it nearly as much as the old Epic.

I bought the vac, used, but was told there was nothing wrong with it. I called the company, and was given the impression that it will be a huge headache to return it. Here's the best part: when I received it, I opened the box: it was broken. Clearly the highest internal piece of the vacume, whent he handle is removed, was cracked off, and in two pieces. The handle will not lock into place, so if I were to vacume forward, see ya, and the vac is back in pieces. Any idea how to rig this to get it t

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 bought a Dyson Vaccum for pets. Spent around 700 for it, and thought it was the cats meow. They promise that there is no lose of suction, and oh boy is that a joke. I clean the filter that they say they don't have, which they do. I have cleaned it up thinking I just have a dirty vaccum. Now the hose sucks together so hard that it is pretty flat.

I have a iRobot 4150 and have recently experiencing performance issues with the vacuum. Recently, it started stopping about a minute after you turn it on. I thought maybe the battery was the issue, but I bought a replacement. It has worked well for the past 6 months. While it's running it sounds like it is going to die, even though it is fully charged. Any ideas?

My Hoover vacuum is not vacuuming the carpets or floors. When I release the tube to use the smaller end the suction works perfect. So i believe the problem is in the rods on the floor or in the part that vacuums the floor! Can you tell me how to fix it , or where can I take it to get it fixed? thanks

Hello this vacuum cleaner has great suction through the hose but not in the main part, it will not pick up i have cheked to see if it is blocked but does not appear to be. any ideas?

If it sucks through the hose it must have a blockage in the pipe or at the head. Remove head and check for hairs and thread which often cause dust to collect there in a knot. Clean the brushes.

Its for a central vac system. I have very low suction power. I've emptied the dirt trap. It seems the fan is working ok, so I guess theres a clog somewhere but I have no idea how to find and fix it. I have no manual on the unit as it was in the house when we bought it. I'd guess its same age as house (19 years old). Any advice would be graetly appreciated!

Usually, low suction would indicate access ports allowing air to enter the system. Easy to test system however. Test vacuum first. Remove intake hose to vacuum ( at the vacuum canister ) and place your hand over intake. You should feel considerab ... Vacuums
