Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Machine pulses and low pessure - Vacuums
Replace your belt. Replace your bag with a new one. Check for clogs in any hoses or areas from the brushroll up to the disposal bag area and remove them. If these steps do not help, your motor will need replacement or service. On any motor there are "brushes" on either side of the armature. When the brushes wear thin, the armature will hesitate to spin and in effect, you will have a pulsating motor, with ineffective suction.

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

Levels/Settings I am having trouble changing the setting on my vacuum from 1 or "Low, Hard Surface" to any other setting. Without changing it, I am unable to vacuum on my carpet, since the setting is too low.
These height adjustments are designed so that they will not adjust when the handle is in the "back" position. This is so they will stay where they are set and not self-adjust while you are vacuuming. To change the setting, you need to return the hand ... Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
I have a Model 116.35922500 Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner. It makes a loud air noise when using the vacuum. I have disconnected and removed the hose to see if anything is lodged in the hose and it appears clear. It makes the noise when the hose is connected. When I remove it, the noise stops. When I place my hand over the hose, the nose re appears. I sounds as though the noise is coming from the fan or internal parts of the machine. So, when there is a load or pull on the machine, it mak

Hello, I have an Electrolux vacuum. In desperation, I vacuumed up some water and my machine stopped. I am hesitant to take the machine to a repair place for fear that if it is a simple repair they will not be honest. Can anyone give me advice on whether this is a problem that requires a new motor or major repair? Thank you!
Although it's never to be recommended, it is sometimes possible to vacuum up a little water without doing significant damage. However, the fact that your machine then stopped suggests that the electrics got wet. That may or may not have caused expens ... Vacuums

Clogged vacuum Rather stupidly, my boyfriend 1) were vacuuming without a bag and 2) vacuumed up a big piece of cotton from a sofa cushion. And now it's making a horrible noise and I see it vibrating where the tube connects to the machine. When you look inside there's a white thing sticking out but it looks like it's part of the vacuum. If it's a clog, how do you fix it? I tried unscrewing the tray the bag sits in but it won't budge.
You can start by taking off the bottom plate or top cover, which ever comes off, that is where the inlet starts going in and hopefully the clog is there. Could be in the hose also. But without the complete model number I can't look it up to see a p ... Kenmore 31912 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one. I have searched the internet high and low and can't find one. Radio Shack has a 3.0amp 250v slow blow fuse whick seems to be the right dimensions. Willl that work. Otherwise, I am not sure what to do and can't afford to take the machine to a repair show. Thank you.
That fuse will work no problem. There is no harm in trying it.The machine probably requires about 2 amps or less under normal operation. Being a 3.0 amp slow blow fuse, it will withstand short bursts of extra current when your machine get ... Vacuums
I have a multifunction robotic auto vacuum cleaner model number XR210. It doesn't seem to be charging when at the docking station. The light is flashing on the docking station as if it was charging, but then I am getting intermittent noises like the vacuum is about to start up, then it beeps and goes silent again. I have emptied the machine. The display does not read 88 as if there is a malfunction, so I'm really not sure what's wrong with it. If I put the vacuum to the docking station the displ
The rubber seal strip inside of the vacuum system on top and on the bottom has started coming off. I was wondering if I could reorder this rubber seal stripping to replace on my system. The model number on my system is #91740. MV 261414/1 is another number that was labeled on the back of machine as well. We ordered it off of QVC and the name of this vacuum system is called, Cook's Essentials's Vacuum Packaging System. Thank you for you time. Look forward to hearing back from you soon.
I have designed a machine for cleaning and harvesting using a centrifugal fan. The flexible hose is 203mm Diameter and 5 metres long. How can I calculate the vacuum pressure this machine creates at the end of the hose? I would like to use this information in the advertising and to compare with other similar machines.

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops with bag light on. It is the correct bag for the machine - so what's the problem?
I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.\015\012Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembl ... Electrolux Vacuums

Low suction My 2001 machine is has low suction. The motor sounds fine what could this be?
Is the suction low at the tank after you disconnect the hose? If it is strong there, then the hose may be clogged. You can unhook the hose from the wands to see if you have suction or not. If you do, then look further down all the way to the brush ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?
This vaccuum has a Fan Blade inside connected to the motor that spins to create the suction you feel. After a few years of use (and misuse) the blades on this (plastic) fan will be broken off, thus damaging the unit. These Fans are replaceable if yo ... Vacuums
Vacuum My vacuum is loosing it's suction power. I've checked the belt and it's in perfect shape...I've bought a new filter cup...I've checked for clogs and there aren't any...I've cleaned the entire machine...and I still can't find the source of the problem.
You checked the belt, but I bet it has stretched and won't drive the brush roll under load like it should. Belts only last a few months the stretch and should be replaced. Iff you have suction at the hose, then it has to be down below, either belt/ ... Eureka Whirlwind 4480 Upright Vacuum
I have any easy-flo built-in vacuum. I recently had the bearings on the motor, top and bottom replaced. I put the vacuum back together and it mow has low suction power. There is plenty of suction on the side of the canister where the rigid tubing meets the canister body but little suction at the wall plates. Any ideas? Roger
There is either a blockage or a pipe is open somewhere. You should check the system at the wall valve without the hose to determine if the pipes are blocked or if perhaps the hose is plugged. If one of the wall valves is damaged or open, this will af ... Vacuums
I bought a used vacuum seal machine (hobart model ht-120) it does excellent vacuum but it doesnt seal correctly all the time. it seems like there is something wrong with the valve that activates the bar that goes up and makes pressure and heats the bag for complete sealing. The heating is perfect but what is not working is what make the bar go up and down.
I have a dirt devil bagless cannister,machine will start and vacuum nicely then shut itself off probably beczause it is over heating and will not start again for at least an hour. Does this machine have a heat sensor and is is fixable?
The vac very likely has a thermostat located near the suction motor that will stop the motor to keep it from burning itself out. These thermostats rarely go bad. You need to look for a blockage starting with the power nozzel (carpet sweeper) all the ... Vacuums
Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

Hi. I borrowed my friend's Hoover VC340 to clean my house. I was vacuuming when i noticed the cannister was full, so I turned the vacuum off, pulled out the barrell, and followed the instructions on the barrell to empty it. I put it back into the machine, but it wont turn back on. I tried different power outlets, but to no avail. any thoughts?
I bought my [email protected] my local Wal-Mart. It is literally falling apart. The sweeper has NOT been abused. Yes, we have 2 cats & a dog but the problems I am having w/ it should not be warranted. The handle has broken. The wheel/roller on the bottom of the machine has broken off & now it has just stopped working. I repeat, this vacuum has NOT been treated badly @ all. I can not be w/out a vacuum.
