Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Carpet height selector doesn't work.
\015 The Eureka Boss has a clear housing for the beater brush and no matter how high I adjust the carpet selector, the brush always stops rolling when it hits the carpet. I keep having to tilt the vac bac to get any kind of beating action out the brush. I'm sure I could up the housing with any trouble, but I'd like to know what I'm looking for.\015
You have a bad belt. It may not be broke but it's so loose that it isn't turning the brush roller when a little resistance is applied to it. That belt is cheap and it's routine maintenance to change it about every 6 months. You will notice a big difference when you put a new one on.

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?
This is a typical problem you are describing. I would recommend you change the belts, this will resolve the "hard to push" and most likely resove your issues. based on the s/n given you maching was made on sept 2004. ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
Why doesnt my Dyson auto adjust on our carpet? We have a taller, soft carpet and it digs into it, making it very difficult to vacuum. We have had the vacuum for about a year at another house and it worked GREAT on the berber......our new has a tall carpet somewhat like shaved berber and now the vacuum wont work.

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

I have a Dirt Devil M088400 - Vision Turbo Vacuum. A spring fell from the bottom and the carpet height adjust isn't working. The rollers under the unit won't stay in place either. Can you tell me how to put the carpet height adjust back together?
The roller attaches to wheels. There is a spring that attaches from roller to hight adjustment selector which is a plastic peice with a little hook on bottom that spring attaches to. Both peices should have a hook that the spring ttaches to. ... Dirt Devil Vacuums

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

The hose works great, but when I try to vacuum the carpet it doesnt work. The brush is turning, but I don't feel much suction. I checked for a clog and didn't see any.

Hoover windtunnel Not sure of model number- but brush roller clamps down on carpet being vacuumed and stops spinning regardless of which of the 3 height selections is selected. Can make it work by leveraging the handle down (or back towards me) to keep the cleaning head a little off of the carpet-any suggestions or ideas?
Would suggest the drive belt is stretched and thus is slipping when contact is made with the carpet. ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

We just used our bissell pro heat 25A3/64D9 series and the top half of the handle is not secure. Infact it flies off in my hand as im cleaning the carpet and it almost hit me in the face!!! It just connects to the lower half but there is nothing to keep it secure. If it is not tight the trigger to squirt water doesnt work and I am stopping and starting. It looks like a major design flaw.

Automatic height adjuster is not working,it grabs carpet and stops roller

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No
Hi\015\012The Miele uprights (S170 and upwards) with the Powerhouse title are ALL Panasonic uprights which have been at one time sold in the UK. Therefore the upright may use TWO drive belts which need to be looked at: Take off the sole plate a ... Vacuums
Kenmore canister vacuum model 116-25512506. It has a 2 stage switch on the handle, the vacuum motor will not work, the carpet beater attachment does work, the vacuum motor will not cut on at all with either stage, 1st stage is vac only, 2nd is vac a carpet attachment. Carpet attachment will work, vac does not.
Try to find the reset button. It should be somwhere near the bottom area. It looks like a red dot that you can push inward. If you can press and hold the reset button, it will restart your suction and solve your problem. ... Vacuums

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?
