We just purchased a Miele upright s7000. I vacuumed for 5 minutes (literally) and it completely shut down. Waited the suggested 30 minutes for cool down, but nothing happens. Waited another 30 minutes and still nothing. My husband checked for clogs according to the manual but still nothing at all. Is it just a dud?

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??

If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog.

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing.

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

I have a Bissell ProHeat 2x, and I did something dum. I had some powdered cleaner that said it works with carpet cleaners-well I mixed it in-and the next time I tried to use it, nothing came out. So, I took it part to check what was wrong-and found out that the powdered cleaner solidified in places. I cleared the nozzels, nothing. I think the solenoid, between the heater and nozzels is pluggd, and possibly the heater. I've got a question-could I use CLR to clean the heater, with replacing t

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

Chatter We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it's highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time.

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?

My Hoover T5703 has suddenly stopped working. I was using it, moved it to another room, presssed the start with my foot - and nothing! I have checked that the fuse and electricity socket are both OK.I did knock it over a while ago and am wondering if I have broken a bit of plastic in the foot starter. It doesn't seem to 'click' as firmly as it did, but I cannot see how to take it off to check?
