Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough ( not loads) of suction til it reaches the cleaning head. the head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all. It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off. is it fixable or is it dead? Thanks

\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking the bottom. It sometimes makes a very loud noise when I try to vacuum. If I press the intell clean on and off yellow button the noise may go away but it still does not work.


Double check hose placement, making sure you have the hose inserted into the correct slot. The long attachment nozzle stores in the front hole on the right, and the sucking hose inserts into the rear hole on the right. I know this is too simple of a ... Vacuums

My Miele capricorn has started making an odd noise. It seems like something is blocking the engine. I've turned if off and on, and reset it and it still have the odd, almost loud barking noise. The power nozzle also does not seem to be working. I've checked the connections. Right before this happened I was using the vacuum. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary until this.


Greetings,\015\012\015\012This is a major problem. The Miele vacuums motor should never make a loud noise, period. The way the motor is designed, it's quiet and should be quiet for the life of the motor. There are two motors on your ... Vacuums

It sounds like the bearings in the motor are shot. You can try to get a replacement motor, or if you're a mechanical genius type, you might be able to repair the motor bearings. If the shaft is worn, you'll have to buy a new motor.\015\012Y ... Fein 9-77-25 Turbo III Bagged Canister Vacuum

I sucked up some toilet paper in my central vac, and not it has almost no suction. How do I remove the block?


Start by checking the hose and wands. Next check what is in the container of the canister. If your filters are dirty it will reduce the volume of air and not clean well.

Excessive noise Why does my vacuum #877 531 7321 116 36932503 make excessive noise when I use the suction tools on high. There does not appear to be any blockage. It sounds normal when I reduce to medium. The same noise happens when using carpet mode.

My Dyson DC14 Animal doesn't have the suction it used to. The piece in the back on the bottom - a flap it appears - stays open now, causing the machine to make a louder noise than usual. At first, if I put my hand on the flap opening it would close, allowing for normal suction. Now, it stays "open" permanently", causing the loss of suction.

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But


Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.


Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt.
