Bissell lift off vacuum about 4yrs old. Extremely noisy. OK until before Christmas but getting worse every time it's used. Washable filters washed, HEPA filter replaced. brush bar cleaned of every scrap, hose empty,everything that can be cleared has been. Noise high pitched, screeching and can only bear to use it for a few seconds at a time. Suction OK. Mine is so loud I can't use it very long-high pitch screech. Can this be fixed or does the whole vacuum need to be replaced? It still cleans gr

DYSON DC14 While vacuuming the living room, the rotating brush started making an awful loud grinding sound. We opened the intake port, cleaned the brush but to no avail sound still persists once you lower the vacuum handle in an attempt to clean. Was wondering if there was anything that can be done?
Take the bottom plate off and check the belt. Also, rotate the brush by hand - it should turn with only a moderate resistance from the belt, or very little if you take the belt off. If it is hard to turn, or if the belt is stripped-out right where it ... Vacuums
I have a Bissell 7920 ProHeat and only used it 4 times and the brush on the bottom has stopped spinning and when attempting to spray solution the flow indicator doesn't spin and nothing comes out. I have looked at all of the belts and they seem fine. I have also removed and cleaned the heating unit. Still nothing. Any other ideas?

I have a yellowMiele Vacuum,model=Electronic Air Clean Plus S3121. On the main body the part that the pipe/nozzle clicks into has a piece that has snapped off. I can see this by lifting the lid and the black plastic piece that is screwed to the inside of the lid has a piece chipped of it which means that when the nozzle is clicked into place it is completely loose. There is a black piece that clicks into the inside of the hoover into this broken part which is still ok so at the moment by linin

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often. Even after a long rest (say overnight) it still won't start, then ano

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

The flexible brush on my unit does not spin. It did 'by accident' pick up a cat poo that didnt make the litter tray while I was out, (and it happily spread it all over the house and skirting boards). I cleaned the unit, removed the base and wiped everything clean. I've unscrewed the flexible brush and cleaned underneath it but it still wont spin. Any suggestions?

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

Hoover S3765 I have a Hoover S3765 (serial # 040600024465) and the unit stops working for no apparent reason. The light on top of the unit goes off when it shuts down, so I don't believe it's a problem between the hose, the tube and the floor unit. Sometimes I have to let it sit for over one hour before it will come back on. I've tried different electrical plugs too. Still won't turn on. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
If you light and nozzle motor both go off at the same time, you might have a bad power cord. Mine had this problem which I could verify by jiggling/twisting the cord near the strain relief on the nozzle. It would go on and off as I did this. ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum
