Hepa 100 dont seem to work it has a muffrer round thinghow do you no if its on
Not sure what you are referring to--if no suction or weak check for blockages from head to air filter--also look to see if filter clear and clean, foam ones can usually be removed and washed and paper ones have to be replaced.

Does power drive wheels work both in forward and reverse and if they dont what is the solution? mine seems to work only in reverse??
The drive transmission works in both directions. If they do not, then the metal cable connection (under the hood) that connects the handlle grip to the transmission, may be slightly out of center adjustment. ... Hoover U6311-930 Power Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

Hi Peter, I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. It sounds as if the internal hose may have become twisted - you should be able to resolve this by removing and replacing it as shown in the video below. Please make sure t ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Suction, after cleaning every part/filter, is virtually non-existant, other than the motor (which works very well) when reassembled various times, I get a big 0 for performance. PO'd in Tx. DC-07 seemes to be a waste of my $$$$.
Hi,Did you dry the filter for 12 hours before reinstalling and giving a go? Most suction problems are from a blockage of some kind. The Dyson website seems to think it's the filter.Here is a website which has instructions on washin ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a panasonic mc-ul975 vacuum that works great when working properly. the airflow through the canister seems to stops once the aero blast technology is done running which causes the vacuum to not function as it should (does not have as much suction and the hose/tool accessories do not work at all). if air is continually running through the canister everything seems fine. please help!
Hi there. In Panasonic vacuums, there is a thermostat protection on the motor. It will auto ... Panasonic MC-UL975 Upright Vacuum
Roomba Discovery My Roomba Discovery seems to work fine, mechanically, but it no longer seems to collect any dust. (The collection bin remains empty after the Roomba has circulated around the floor for quite a while). The brush has been replaced and spins normally. Does anyone have an idea why this machine's vacuum function no longer seems to work? I would appreciate any feedback. Jeremy
Did you replace the filter? when you remove the dust bin there is a small filter that needs to be cleaned, or replaced. You can buy a maintenance kit that replaces the brushes and filters as well, its good to replace them all regularly ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair. This works well but obviou
Check to see if your brush is not worn down, they do wear with age - compare the length of the bristles with a new one. Replace the brush ir there is a significant difference in bristle lengths. Also check the flexible ben ... Bissell Vacuums
Brush works intermittedly - I've looked at the common solutions listed but none seem to work...shaking it & reseating the canister will get it working again sometimes but obviously that doesn't seem to be a very good solution. Can you help?
I just had the same problem. I would turn on the vac, and it worked fine. When I turned on the brush it would work for a few seconds then shut off. Through troubleshooting I found out it had nothing to do with a bad power connection. By chance I took ... Bissell Healthy Home HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Metallic Blue

I bought an old Juki Baby Lock 418 at a garage sale. It will sew for 3 or 4 inches and then seems to be off timing and locks up. I have no instruction manual. Is there a manual available for this old machine? I would prefer a downloadable manual because I already have money invested in the machine which doesn't seem to work. It was suppose to have been gone over at a repair shop before I purchased it and was told that it worked. .
The problem has been getting worse. It works, then cuts off. Then works and cuts off. Making sure the canister is not full. Time b/w it working is getting longer and longer. Almost seems this time when I change the outlet it is plugged into it works. But then shuts off quicker than it was doing before. I'm getting very frustrated.
We had exactly the same problem with our Animal. After the motor was replaced under warranty a different engineer came out and diagnosed it as the cyclone chamber itself being clogged.(the bit with the purple cylinders on it).

I have a miele S4210 vacuum. It has a SAB100 accu nova battery brush which will not work. After charging the battery, light comes on saying not charged and now the power head brush won't turn.

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current
I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

We have a Hover F7411-900 which runs great but for some reason the wash does not dispense the cleaning solution. It works fine on rinse but not on wash. We tried cleaning the round piece at the base of the cleaning solution but that did not fix the problem. How can you repair so that the wash will work.
That would be the wash silonod, the thing that makes the soap and water mix together in order to make the soap come out at the bottom were the brushes are. ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.
Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...

Hoover Windtunnel On/Off switch will not turn Off...Switch seems to work O.K. when pressed directly but not with handle switch...It will turn on but not off..Cam seems to be intact on switch actuator..How does switch come out? Thanx
Take the handle off, then remove the tool holder, then you can get to the switch. Just has tabs on each side of switch, depress them and push it out. These switches will do this after awhile, replacing them is usually the way to correct the problem ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

From your description, you problem sounds like it could be an electrial one, not very hard to diagnose, but some dis-assembly is required. you would have to remove the hood, motor cover, turbine just to get to the motor.
