Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Vacuum Keeps Clogging
\015 I have to unplug my vacuum everytime I use it. Not because I vacuum up big pieces of anything. I clear out all the hoses but there just isn't enough suction and I dont know if there is another clog that I just can't see. I am hoping you can help me because this is very frustrating.\015
Wish I knew what you have. You could have a clogged filter. Have you dropped something like a big marble down thru the hose to see if it comes out with out any problem. Sometimes a needle or nail or a piece of something that gets caught and turns sideways so that things hang up on it then clog up the hose. If your vac. will run without the hose, if it does, how is the suction at the spot that the hose plugs into? If ok, then there is a problem with the hose, if low, then you have a problem with the vac. If this an upright, the dirt inlet by the brsh roll is clogged, or the belt is stretched enought so the the brush roll uner load won't turn, acting like low suction.

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.

I have a Sears Upright vacuum cleaner, model 116.35922500. The vacuum wasn't picking up. I discovered a clog in the nozzle hose. I attempted to remove the cover of the brush unit to clear the clog.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
