Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner's motor spindle keeps overheating. Because of the high temperature, it keeps burning through belts (the big, wide ones). I have taken it in to the vacuum repair shop about three times now, and the problem has never been fixed. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this or should I just buy a new vacuum?

The foot pedal on my Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner has broken three times. The vacuum model number is 116.33923 and the Sear's part number is 8174906. Does Sears make this part in metal instead of plastic? It is becoming expensive to keep replacing this piece when it costs around $20 each time (including shipping) Thank you for your time.

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

Bissell 37604 Bagless Upright Vacuum. Hose keeps clogging every time I vacuum. Is there a way to prevent this? I am ready to buy a new vacuum, but it does do a great job picking up hair...until it clogs. It clogs at top of hose. Could the hose be kinked? It does not look like it.


That is a defect in the design of that style of vacuum. I went back to my old vac because I got so tired of having to unstop it. The sharp turns in the hose and the molded plastic causes it. Find one without the turns. ... Bissell 37604 Lift-Off Pet Bagless Upright / Canister Vacuum CleanerVacuum
