Having problems with your Vacuums ?
I purchased the cascade 170 internal filter for my tadpole this past Tuesday. All seemed to be well until I returned home from work this Sunday morning to find him dead. There was a film of little white bubbles all of the top layer of the water. The filter was submersed however it appeared that some of the water had evaporated but was still over the top of the filter.
Is there a problem with the filter or the level of water? I'd like to get another tadpole but would like to know

I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit......it is dry, dry, dry. I have put in a new filter, cleaned the nozzle unit, the scrubber , and reconnected both the recovery unit and the water unit several times, but to no avail. I would like to get a graut attachment a well as replacement part, but since I can't get the basic unit to work, I

I have a sta rite (pentair) cristal high rate sand filter model T-200-BP-1....its leaking water thru the top of the valve, where the valve cover screws on the valve body assembly. it leaks water out where they go together around the screws.

Also the backwash leaks when its turned 2 the filter position, does it supposed to do that?...the only way i have gotten it to stop is to put a seper
I have the scunci 1000 steamer- it was sitting for a while and the cap on the top looks like its corroded and i cannot remove it from the steamer - i just bought it a year ago, but i think the salt or vinegar from cleaning it got trapped in the top and i tried everything i could think of to loosen the top so i could pour water into the unit and use it again; otherwise it is in perfect condition, but i tried even pliers and i cannot loosen it and i dont want to break it, but am so frustrated - wh

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is. The problem is that the vacuum part itself (the part that touches the floor and rolls over) has ejected its filter that we can see through the little window- it just came out under the rollers under the device... we cannot see how to re-insert this piece of filter which looks like a kind of round, flat grey foam/fabric and clearly goes inside- (top of the part that touches the flo

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

We just used our bissell pro heat 25A3/64D9 series and the top half of the handle is not secure. Infact it flies off in my hand as im cleaning the carpet and it almost hit me in the face!!! It just connects to the lower half but there is nothing to keep it secure. If it is not tight the trigger to squirt water doesnt work and I am stopping and starting. It looks like a major design flaw.

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters. I noticed when I turn it on, there is a valve on the top of the cannister that opens and you can feel suction from the vent hole. Is this valve malfunctioning, or is it working correctly because something else is malfunctioning?

I just got the majestic and it doesn't seem to have a lot of suction power- I ran water thru the hose and it drained out fine I also put the hose on top and blew it out. Could it still be the hose?-or does it sound like a bigger problem?
Did you change the filter cone? Clogged pores can and do inhibit airflow. Bent fan blades can be another problem. Holes, slits, and cracks, no matter how small, in the hose can result in reduced suction.\015\012And you should NEVER run water ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum
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
