Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My electroluix super pro z 6160 with a turbo head has lost suction. the last thing vacd up was a broken drinking glass. please advise of anything i can do to fix.

Answers :


According to your problem, first check the suction pipe if\015\012there is any blockage. Clear the blockage. You can try with attaching another\015\012head. If the head is faulty the change the turbo head or repair it. If the head\015\012is OK and the suction pipe is not blocked then clear all dust and check the vacuum\015\012pressure unit. Or you have to change the suction pipe.

The pieces of broken glass may have become lodged in the hose. Try removing the hose and the turbo head from the end of it. Give the hose a good shake and then hold the bare pipe ( the end the turbo head was on) against the intake of the electrolux. Cup your hand around the intake to seal. The glass may have jammed and sucking it the opposite way may release it. Check the turbo head also as pieces of glass may have stuck here.

My FIL purchased an Electrolux bagless canister vacuum model EL5 76501 last year. When I tried to use it today, the hose keeps pulling out of the power brush whenever I pull it towards me. it doesn't seem like anything has broken off.

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809. This thing is so dirty and clogged because my sister has pets. So far I've gotten it all taken apart to clean it. I'm not a newbie and taking apart and fixing things. I have fixed things like microwaves, washers, dryers, dishwashers (still learning about TV's-very hard, hehe). Anyway, I got what I believe to be the motor cover off.

Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while?

I have a NUTONE central vac, when I turn on the power, It sounds like its grinding glass and doesnt suction. Could it be that broken glass got caught in the motor and all I need to do is clean it, or is this the sound of a failed motor?

More likely it's something in the fan. However, I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop to make sure. Something could have got into the fan system and is making a racket, but the motor itself won't crunch up glass. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
