Vax lightweight HEPA had for two months, Hoover one room turn off go to next room and won't turn on again for a few hours ( normal size rooms)
Every time I try to vacuum my apartment with my Dirt Devil Featherlite bagless vacuum, it shuts off before I have finished one or two rooms. I then have to wait 30 minutes before continuing. I had the vacuum for 2 months before exchanging it and it is doing the same thing with my new one. It seems to happen after the first time I empty the cannister. Any ideas?

We have a 2001 Kirby G vacuum. The cleaning lady was using it in one room, then brought it to another room and plugged it into another receptacle. It wouldn't start. Naturally we tried other outlets on other circuits without success. Is a switch or motor demise this abrupt? Is it worth pursuing repair?
Hi,Such an abrupt fault is more than likely a very simple fault, such as a loose wire or damaged electrical cord or a faulty switch. I would most certainly check or have these components checked before purchasing a new machine. They should be r ... 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?

My Dyson DC07 has recently been service and was making a clattering noise and very hard to push. We have taken it back and he has changed the clutch mechanism under the base which has solved the clattering, but it is still really hard to push because of the suction. It is even lifting the carpet in one room. Can you tell me what the possible reasons for this could be? One thought we had was that the little rubber wheels on the bottom cover could have worn so the hoover is closer to the floor
On the sole plate you should have 5 little wheels, these are prone to jamming after a while. You should make sure these are not jammed in anyway.\012\012You can release these with a screwdriver, but be careful not to prize too hard as you ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Kenmore Canister Vac, Progressive, 25512 255513 model. Brush won't turn. One end of the brush roller, end closest to belt, is off center which is keeping it from turning freely.

My wind tunnel keeps breaking its belt. The big one. The little one is properly attached. This is a recent problem so it has nothing to do with the rug height settings. I just broke two in the course of 15 minutes. The bag is NOT full, the brush/beater has been cleaned and properly attached Help.

Hello, My Electrolux Renaissance is about 12 years old. It worked great for years, but now it keeps turning itself off...about every 15 seconds or so. The bag was just changed recently, too. Is there an easy, (and cheap) fix or should I start shopping for a new one?? Thanks!

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.

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet

Rainbow SE I turned the vacuum on and it worked to do one room Then I shut it off to wait until my husband got of his call. I realized that their was cloggage in the vacuum part that vacuums the carpet and unclogged it. I then tried to turn on and it was dead. I have the water filled just above the stick.
The clog may have over heated the motor, usually if you unplug it then after little while, try it again. If it still won't go, does the separator turn easily or is it bound up and won't turn. Take it off and see if the motor will run(without water) ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
