Our Dyson sucked something up last week (not sure WHAT) and now the telescoping hose won't ****. Well, it sucks but just BARELY . I took the hose apart and can't see anything, but it makes a weird noise now when you stand the unit up and are not actually vacuuming with it. Help!


Well if the hose is completly clear the blockage is either before that or after that the brush roller should come out to clean the tube as you know also comes out make sure all are clear right up to the collector ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.

Hi. My dyson dc14 wand works great then all of a sudden if something too big or even just the carpet it makes a sucking noise & the purple round bit in the actual Hoover makes a funny noise & then the suction isn't as great. If it turn it off then on again it comes back to normal! Help!!


Sounds like a blockage. I have a DC14 and I have never had this problem. You can easily remove the wand from the flexible hose and the flexible hose from the machine to check for a blockage. Don't allow paper or larger items to go into the machine, e ... Vacuums

I took the cover off the brush so I could cut off all the hair that was wrapped around it (vacuum was working fine, I just noticed the hair). I pulled the brush/spinner thing off one side, cleaned everything, popped it back in where it belonged, and tried to make sure the belt was in the proper alignment. However, when I turned the vacuum on, it makes a horrible noise like I'm sucking up rocks. What have I done wrong in putting it back together? It seemed simple...


The ends of the brush roller have to go in in a certain position.each end has a different look.make sure the match up to the seats on the roller guides and make sure the belt is centered.the belt will center itself by turning the roller by hand in on ...

I have a Kirby G4. I have noticed the last few days when trying to vacuum that it is blowing more than it is sucking up. I put on a new bag to make sure it wasn't too full. I also put on the hose and noticed it's not sucking as well as normal. I unzipped the back of the bag holder and noticed the bag isn't inflating as it should be as well. I appreciate any advice. Thank you.


Take the mini emptor off(plastic piece on bottom of cloth bag) this is done by rotating it away from the body of the machine. There is most likely a clog there. Also take the brush head off and inspect fan for chips or cracks this will also reduce su ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

I accidentally sucked up a strap from a bag, and when I pulled it out from the vacuum the vacuum now makes a loud noise only when the brush is rotating. Please help! Thank you!


Is it the vacuum making a loud noise, or the power head. I'd say the belt in the power held came apart and is flapping around inside. You may be able to replace, but I recommend taking it to the dealer for repairs. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank


You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

\015\012The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on th ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
