Having problems with your Vacuums ?
I have a Air Vac 2500 Red Series and been wondering how to clean the filter or do you have to replace it ?
Hi, that is a weighted bag. The bag should be replaced every 5 years or so but between then put a trash bag up over the bottom, grab the filter, and shake. This is the only maintenance you need. To remove the filter, when it's time, simply grab a top edge and pull hard inward. The outer stiff rim bends in and the whole thing falls out.

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey
I have a Dyson DC07 Yellow Vac, I use this vacuum professionally and clean it after every job so there is no issues with the filter which are replaced regularly. When you turn it on it makes a noise as if it were blocked....I have checked all pipes, hoses and now disassembled the machine to the point where the motor is out. I have found that a small rubber valve or bleed valve (Attached to the right hand detachable filter housing and activated via an internal spring) is popping when the vac

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

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. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through. Primary filter is clean and HEPA filter is replaced. Even when everything is unclogged, suction is weak compared to another unit (same model) that a friend has. Any ideas?

I am losing suction and it sounds as if there is a leak in the vacuum(I hear air rushing around). There is also a high pitched noise. Dyson dc07. Can there be leaks in the gaskets where you clean hoses and filter? are they replaceable. Does the noise suggest the bearings are going in the motor?Is it worth getting fixed?
It wont be a gasket problem - they don't tend to fail. \015\012\015\012A high-pitched noise can be a number of different things. That is too vague to diagnose on here with the description you have given. Can you be more specific? ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My Lg Canister vacuum keeps beeping and shutting down even after filters have been cleaned or replaced also air flow is low causing the brush attactment not to work properly
Have a Eureka Power Plus 12.0 Amps Model 4702 Type A 120 volts and 60 HZ that there is something wrong that it isn't picking up right and you can actually feel the air coming out of it near where the bagless canister attaches. My thoughts are that a seal is missing around where the hole lines up when the cannister is locked in. This Vac was my Mom's and she passed away and I think a part went missing maybe when it was taken apart to clean the filter and empty the canister. Need to figure out if

What color is the air flow indicator supposed to be? Mine is yellow but I have no suction. I have read that some people have red, others yellow. I have cleared out all hoses and cleaned the filters with a shop vac, still cannot get it to pick up. Just keeps blowing the dirt out the back at me :(

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

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

Replacing filter Got a Filter Queen Majestic vacuum from my inlaws when they moved overseas. I am in middle of vacuuming, got a weird noise, so opted to check and clean the filter for first time. UGH. The lower 'pot' that's the bottom part of the thing was full of gunk, but the filter pristine clean against the cone that's attached to the upper part of the unit. In other words, I am shocked to see that the dirt goes not INTO the filter, but outside of it into the bottom portion (that I call the
