Have you replace the afterfilter? It may also cause this if rather dirty. It's located under the tool caddy/air diffuser on the back half of the machine.\015\012Try this: Disconnect hose, turn on vacuum. Does it continue running? If so, pl ... Electrolux Lux 7000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have a Eureka Maxima, this was a gift to me, but I have to say it is the worst vacuum I have ever used. Not only do I have a problem with the suction and the filter getting clogged, but it overheats - it takes me all day to vacuum my house, because the darn thing overheats after every room. Besides for tossing it off a cliff and buying a better vacuum, what can I do?

My windsor sensor 12 inch vacuum is to hard to push. I bought a new one and its doing the same thing. My vacuum repair man says he cant fix the problem. My shoulders are sore from working so hard. Help
It\\'s possibly the type of carpet you\\'re using it on. The sensors use the brush speed and the amount of air flow to determine carpet height. Some berber, and tweeds make these things horrible to push. We sell sebo, who make the windsor and we\\'ve ... Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum
Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while? We take it in for maintenance as recommended to replace filters, etc. Is there some miracle trick to make it work or sho
Did you make sure the brush turns freely? Even though it is clean, if it does not turn freely with the belt, it will not beat the carpet and pull debris up into the unit.\015\012\015\012Another (drastic?) thing to try would be to take the unit ... Vacuums
I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part would cost and can it be done by a beginner. We fix a lot of things ourselves but we aren't mechanics by no means. We put a brand new belt on it. I don't think it can be put on backwards and brush turns fine. Where is the switch? Use layman's terms.
You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the ... Vacuums
My hoover wind tunnel self propelled vacuum wont stand up be itself. The locking thing is not working. Thank You. [email protected]
If you look at the foot pedal, see if it is locked in the base, and pivots freely. I have seen some of these that break the base, or break the spring hinge on the back side of the release pedal. ... Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

My dc17 squeals when the brushes are rotating. I have replaced the brushes twice and the belt three times. It has been back to the factory twice and they say they have done the same thing. The suction is still there but it is getting to the point I might have to wear ear plugs to vacuum any suggestions.

I HAD MY DC17 VAC FOR 3 YRS NOW NO PROBLEMS AT ALL, I REGULARLY CLEAN THE FILTER LIKE IT SAYS BUT LATELY I'VE NOTICE THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT MORE COLLECTION ON THE TOP OF THE FILTER WHEN I'M DONE VACUUMING. IT HAS ALSO STARTED THIS WEEK TO MAKE A VERY LOUD HUMMING TYPE NOISE WHILE RUNNING, I HAVE CHECKED FOR ALL POINTS FOR ANY BLOCK AND NOTHING AND NOW TODAY IT RUN A FEW MINUTES AND STOPS AUTOMATICALLY,IT WILL RESTART AFTER I LET IT SIT UNPLUGGED.WHATS UP WITH THIS THING, IT HAS BEEN GR
The vac is over heating. First, you should try a new filter. Also, keep in mind that after cleaning the filter, make sure that it fully dries. Using a wet or damp filter clogs it quickly.

I have a hoover windtunnel 2. The filter was filthy so I dismantled the whole thing to try and clean the filter. Now I can't put it together again. Also, where can I find a new filter to buy in Orlando, Florida? Has there been a recall on these vacuums? The filter definately is NOT self cleaning?

I have 2 Hoover Wind Tunnel-self propelled bagged vacuums-U6433-900 model.The roller bar does not agitate, the self propelled feature does not work and, in general, the vacuum is not performing well. I have replaced the roller bar, the v belt and the wide belt. The filters have been replaced and it has a new bag. I have had both of these since 2004 and they were fairly expensive $200 each) but if the repairs are prohibitive, I might as well get new vacuums. Suggestions? I just spent $100 for bel

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?
This is a typical problem you are describing. I would recommend you change the belts, this will resolve the "hard to push" and most likely resove your issues. based on the s/n given you maching was made on sept 2004. ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
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

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.
... Hoover U6485900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
The bottom bar that encases the brush is flush to the floor when using the vacuum. This causes the suction to "stick" the vacuum to the floor (lamenate) and also as there is no ground clearance debris is just pushed around. We have to nearly stand the thing upright to get the ground clearance to be enough for things to start being sucked up. I have taken apart, re-assembled etc and nothing is working.
I'm having the same problem. The bottom plate is not level with the floor unless the vacuum is nearly in the upright position. Its like there should be a spring pushing the bottom plate towards the floor. Anyone know how to fix this ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I just bought this vacuum at a second hand store. My girlfriend told me to grab it as it such a quailty product. How ever I can't find a model number or anything else. I need a manual please. Does it take bags? Do I need to replace the filter or just wash the one I have? It is black and silver, cannister. It also says big gary's vacuum system warehouse in surry British Columbia, Canada. It also says to use filter pow-r-nozzle 96. I have no idea of the year.

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
The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

Engine troubles I have a 1975 4x4 GMC full size van. The motor is a 350 cid small block on propane. The thing hadn't been running in 5 years and when I tuned it up I changed vacuum advance pod on HEI distributor and hooked to a better vacuum and now the hotter it gets the faster it idols and when I try and turn the timing back, it starts hard. Wondering if vacuum is too strong or what is up?
I haven't fixed it yet but I think I might have a solution for it. From the factory this thing had a 4 barrel carb and they put an equivalent size atomizer in it for the propane and over the years someone omitted the EGR system in it and propane is a ... Vacuums
My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
