It does not make the noise when I have it on floor but as soon as I put it on carpet it screams at me. Help! Please and thanks Linda

How to take apart the Hoover U6437-900 to change the belt and clean it. I have the belts and I have removed several screws. It looks like the knobs for the wheel carpet height and carpet to floor selection are the problems but I can not figure out how to remove the knobs. Besides, I am not certain if this is the problem. Do you have the instructions? Thanks

Bissell proheat 2x 9200 series carpet cleaner. I need to remove the Brush Drive motor. However, this series has the gear end of the motor shaft poking out a hole on the left hand side. I removed the retaining washer and pin from the gear shaft. I need to get the gear off of the shaft in order to remove the motor. It's not budging.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?
