Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a Eureka Whirlwnd bagless upright vacuum. It can pick up the dog hair but does not pick up the dirt anymore. What can I do?


Answers :

Check the hose and dirt inlet by the brush roll for a clog. Also check your brush roll, do the ends turn freely, if not replace it, you may need a new belt, it may not be turning the brush roll under load. They stretch after awhile and will slip.

It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair. This works well but obviou

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1
