HEPA Filter My vacuum came with a sponge over the filter and the directions said I could wash the filter. Do the directions mean to wash the black sponge or the actual filter?

Hi, I have a sanyo SC164R/185R vacuum cleaner and just wanted to know if it has a HEPA filter? I can't find any info on this; the instruction manual just talks about cleaning the filter but doesn't specify what the filter is. I have a child that has just been diagnosed with a dust mite allergy and apparently a HEPA filter is what we need to help iliminate them.

Hoover Windtunnel My Hoover Windtunnel is 3 years old. It worked great until yesterday when it lost all suction. I have followed the manual to trouble shoot any possible clogs and could find none. Then I noticed that when I remove the dirt collection cup and held my hand over the vent the suction is fine and strong. So... I replaced the hepa filter thinking that might be the problem. That didnt' work. The motor runs fine. The suction without the dirt cup inserted is strong. As soon as you insert

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

Would a clogged hepa filter cause the vacuum to stop picking up dirt? There's suction on the hose when I checked it.


Generally the Hepa filter is a bypass filter in which there is another filter on the unit. Check to ensure that the belt is allowing the rollers to turn the brush. Just suction on the line won't pick up deep dirt unless you allow to sit in place. ... GE 106585 Upright Vacuum
