Answers :

Use a higher amp rated switch. If this is not available, then solder and insulate the wires where switch should be, then install an aftermarket in-line switch.
Hi Ashley,

This website has one for the 12/14/16 gallon vacs:
http://www.vacsrus.com/CartGenie/prod-1165.htm

If yours is a different size, write back and I'll see if I can find it for you. Hope the 4th one lasts a bit longer.....

Hope this helps. If it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,
Handie Andie

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.

Between the two brands... stay away from the nutone. If you can get it, the Beam, Eureka, or even the Electrolux and Kenmore(sears) would still be better. The warranty would be better on the Beam and Eureka (7 or 10 and one model is even 15 years) ... Easy Flo EF1525 Central System Vacuum

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.

Hover Elite Rewind I've only had this vacuum a few months and I really liked it until now. There is almost no suction from anywhere in the vacuum, and I've cleaned all the filters and rollers with my shop vac and made sure that everything was assembled correctly. It used to be really quiet now it is quite loud and it keeps over heating, and shutting off. At this point I have no idea what could cause this problem, the machine is nearly brand new and I can't afford a new one at this point.
