I have a Panasonic MCV7515 UPRIGHT VACUUM and need to remove the cowling that covers the brushes to clean the hair out of the bearings, but it isn't clear how that can be done without a crowbar or sledgehammer. Removing all the visible screws makes the hindmost part loose, but not the front half. Also, is there an easy way to replace the belt?

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.
Befrore you plunk your $ down ...\015\012\015\012I dont now that you melted the hair so much as you may have an accululation of gunk and hair. If there is a good (not 'fast food' type) auto parts store near you, go there and ask the cou ... Electrolux 1910 Bagless Upright Vacuum

My Dyson Aminal Vacuum simply will not turn on. I plugged it in this morning, pressed the power button- and nothing. No warning sounds, simply silence. Sigh. Nothing is wrong with the wall outlet.The vaccum is 3 years old but has run perfectly until this point. The brushes are clean of any accumulated hair. What part might need replacing?

I just bought the LG200R vacuum. It is working wonderfully but i have only had it a week. I have already had to clean the agitator but this is due to my extremely long hair and apparently i shed a lot. I was wondering if i should be alarmed by the funny smell it leaves in the air. Its not like a burning rubber smell but more like a fresh plastic smell or sorta chemical like smell (hard to describe) and it doesn't need to be on to make this smell it seems to be permeating off the vacuum itself

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

I'm not sure if it needs a good cleaning or a new belt. I called the vac place & they want $80 for cleaning it...more if it needs parts of course.

Folks, My wife and I own a three-year-old Hoover U6434-900 self-propelled "Wind Tunnel" upright vacuum cleaner. The problem is that, even on the highest setting (front-end as high as possible), it gets bogged-down in even shallow pile carpet to the point that the brush stops. I've cleaned the machine thoroughly, pulling hair, thread, dental floss and such from the brush (and everywhere else), including unscrewing the brush end caps and pulling out the cat hair mats which formed in there.

How to clean the unit? The clear suction part in the front gets filled with fibers and other **** and I don't know how to get it cleaned out without breaking it. Any suggestions?
