Vacuum Manual why does my advance a-28 carpetriver not suck dirt into the bag
Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?
Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

Not sucking i have a KIRBY G3 that was working great. One day there was a strong smell and the brush roller belt broke so I replaced it. The fan looks good. Now the vacuum does not **** up dirt but instead seems to very gently blow air forward. I took the (new) bag off and it is blowing hard int the bag. I am stumped!

Vacuum sucks up dirt and expells it back onto the carpet as I am using it. I have replaced the bag and took the bottom off to clean - even cleaned up the area where the dirt should go to make sure it was not clogged.
Good chance the tube from the base up the handle is clogged. Try removing the bag and look at the exit, that is where most clogs on this unit occur. Look for hair, string, etc. If clog is not there, then may be in the tube or at the base swivel unit ... Oreck XL2600 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

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?
After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums

Need Kirby Generation 3 Vacuum cleaner manual. Vacuum is not picking up dirt from floor. Seems to have enough suction to inflate the bag, but when you check the suction under the vacuum, there seems to be extremely litle suction.

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner model #116.34720. The problem I am having is that if you are rolling the vacuum around, the base will drop without pressing on the handle release pedal. This often results in a bunch of dirt being dumped back out. The manual doesn't show anything about adjusting the handle release pedal so it holds the handle and base in an upright position better. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
