How do you keep human hair weave soft
My dyson d14 animal keeps cutting in and out. When it's on, the hole above where the filter is, keeps making a loud suction noise and it won't clean up hair and dirt.
Vacuum Cleaners require AIr-Flow. Your machine is not getting any air-flow. The noise you hear is a valve opening up to prevent your machine from overheating and burning out the motor. You probably have an obstruction somewhere in the machine. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a Hoover U5111-900 that, every time I attempt to use it, shoots everything it should be sucking up, back out toward my feet. I have replaced the bag, pulled out lots of animal hair and such from the area behind the bag, and taken off all parts able to be removed without a screwdriver and pulled out all chunks of hair, dirt, etc. It still keeps shooting everything it should **** up out the back. Is there something I can remove to get the clog out if that's the problem? I'm scared I wil

When I vacuum it leaves behind large clumps/rows of pet hair as if it was raked into a pile. I have to keep going over it to get all of the hair. I have cleaned out the vacuum and filters to help, but it does nothing to affect the perfomance of the machine. Why is it doing this?

The filter keeps getting acouple of inches of dog hair on it.I clean it once or twice a week but its still clumped on it.thanks
With heavy concentrations of dog hair, the machine needs to be cleaned after each use. This seems tedious, but will greatly extend the life of the machine and make it work better in the meantime. I have often considered finding a nice bald dog myself ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The powerhead on my Dirt Devil keeps cutting out, and after a few minutes, making a burning rubber smell. Only used it less than a dozen times (same thing happened with my Hoover!) It is free of hair etc...
Sounds like you've done a lot of troubleshooting on this unit. It could be that the bushings are worn and the "play" in them is causing them to seize (this is often accompanied by a chattering sound from the bushings).\015\012\015\012I w ... Vacuums

Hi there,I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. This machine should have no problem dealing with animal hair, so if it doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, this may be due to a blockage. The easiest way to che ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
5 yr. old Miele s514 Turbo plus's power nozzle brush seems to disengage temporarily, stopping the spin. Then it seems to re-seat itself after a few seconds, then starts spinning OK. I keep the nozzle brush very clean, so there is no hair or yucky stuff to cause it to jam. Please help.
I had a White Pearl with same problem. As I moved the hose/wand the brush motor would start stop. Find out where the circuit opens up by holding one part and moving the part that connects to it - 1) where the hose plugs into the cleaner, 2) the swi ... Miele S514 Solaris Turbo Plus Vacuum
Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming. I believe some lent and hair got sucked into the vacuum motor. We've changed the bag and filters. Now the motor makes a loud noise especially when shutting off. what should we do?
Get a professional repairer to examine it. Even with an over-full bag, dirt will not have got in to the motor if the pre-motor filter was correctly positioned and in good condition. However, the motor may have been damaged through lack of air flow an ... Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum
My Kirby G6 light is not turning on when I start the machine. I took off the front piece and removed a lot of hair from the roller and interior. Since I did that, the belt keeps coming off (even though it is fairly new). Is that the reason the light won't turn on? Is there any advice you can give me before I take it in?
The light indicates that the brushroll is spinning. If it isn't coming on, the power nozzle may have been reinstalled incorrectly. Take the nozzle off and then use my step-by-step guide to reinstall it. I expect that it will take care of the problem. ... Kirby Vacuums

I have a Panasonic MCE6003 vacuum cleaner. I regretfully leant it to a neighbour and it came back full of dog hair and keeps cutting out. I cleaned out the dust container and the main filter but it still kept cutting out after 5 minutes. I decided to unscrew the part with the motor and wash the filter inside.It was all going well until a large rubber washer bit, a piece that looks like the thermostat and a little white button attached to two black wires fell out and now I have no idea how to put

I have a roomba 551. Have cleaned and removed every bit of dirt and hair off it bu the brush cage won't close when the larger bush is put in. The cage will only click locked on one side, and the other side keeps hitting the brush and won't close. It's almost as if the bursh itself is not even, but this doesn't seem to be the case either. I've even tried removing the yellow rings, but makes no difference. Occasionally it runs fine, but most of the time the roomba just hobbles and clacks as i
Hi, had the same problem, it was like the main brush no longer fit into it's slot, so the brush cage would not latch. I discovered that the yellow bearing tip on the main brush twists off, and inside I found a lot of hair twisted around the pin. Th ... Vacuums

My Vax Swift Pet Premium has suddenly lost suction. There was a lot of human hair wraped around the brush which I removed but no theres no suction at all. The motor sounds fine.
Bissell 37604 Bagless Upright Vacuum. Hose keeps clogging every time I vacuum. Is there a way to prevent this? I am ready to buy a new vacuum, but it does do a great job picking up hair...until it clogs. It clogs at top of hose. Could the hose be kinked? It does not look like it.
That is a defect in the design of that style of vacuum. I went back to my old vac because I got so tired of having to unstop it. The sharp turns in the hose and the molded plastic causes it. Find one without the turns. ... Bissell 37604 Lift-Off Pet Bagless Upright / Canister Vacuum CleanerVacuum

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.
