We bought our Kirby less than 5 years ago and lately are not happy with it....it keeps breaking. The warranty has expired and our biggest complaint is that it has lost it's suction power. All the contents stay in the hose when I vacuum out the car or upholstery and it does vacuum well at all. The Kirby store quoted us over $200 to fix/ service it. Apparently this is not covered in the free yearly maintenance which we just had done. Any suggestions?

I bout this vacume in mid December 07 and about February-March it started not picking up the dust on the floor. So in early April I bout a new filter and it still wasn't picking up the way it had in the beginning. I've taken it a part several times and cleaned it out with it being plugged at the bottom hose with dust bunnies. Well I just took it back to Walmart where I purchased it and I failed to keep the reciet they could not do any thing about the sweeper. I went back to the sweepers and re

Pull the hose out of the holder, is there suction there. If not, then there is a clog in the hose. If there is suction, then check the dirt outlet by the brush roll. Also if the belt is slipping, it may appear to not have as much suction, belts wi ... Dirt Devil Vacuums

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact

My Eureka/The Boss doesn't seem to have the suction power it had. However, when I place my hand under the hose, it has good suction, then when I try to pull in a small particle, it doesn't, unless I have the hose nozzle completely over the particle. The vac is 10 yrs. old. I cleaned everything. Someone said the belt. Would the belt matter if the hose doesn't **** well? It is just old and worn out? It did shut off recently do to overheating. Help. Thanks. Lorraine

Doesn't "The Boss" Vacuum have a filter? Perhaps your filter is clogged and not allowing it to work properly. ... Vacuums

The vacum will run until the hose is inserted and then the motor shuts off. The vacum switch must be hooked up incorrectly. Do you have a schematic?

Before trying to take it apart, check the hose for a blockage. Disconnect the hose at both ends, drop a coin in one end, lift that end of hose allowing coin to drop through. If it doesn't come through, there's a clog. You should be able to clear i ... Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum

The motor overheats and shuts off. This annoying because it has done it at least 5 times today during normal vacuuming. It shuts off easily when you use the hose and canister to clean the steps or around the floor. What can I do to alleviate this problem?

Almost all vacuum cleaners have a thermal cut-out, which operates when the machine gets too hot and resets automatically when it cools down. Overheating is almost always caused by a blockage. Either the filters need cleaning or changing, or the ... Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum

I was vacuming with the hose only with my kirby generation 3 vacum and it suddenly made a different sound and smelled strong of burning. I immediately shut it off and unplugged it. It IS about 30 yrs old. Do you think it is worth taking in to pay someone to look at it or it just bit the dust?

It might be the belt and if it is it will be a sipmle fix. If it isn't I think It's time to bite the dust and buy new. You won't believe what you old vacuum was not sucking up and for what it would cost to repair vs buying new it would be about the s ... Vacuums

Vaccum is making a loud high pitched sound, doesn't work well through the hose or the floor piece and shuts its self off after about 5 minutes.

I have no suction for vacumming the floor. the wand is totally still working and sucking it heart out. clear hosing doesnt looked cracked. dont know where else to look.

Hi, if the wand is doing its job very well, you have to have a blockage some where, either in the hose where it attaches to the bottom of the unit near the roller section. It may be hard to see, but this is what is causing the bottom from not picking ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

REPEATDED CLOGGING My unit keeps clogging in the hose right where it meats the brush. My wife and I have cleaned it several times but it continues to clogg after every few uses. What can be done about this?

Are you sure there is nothing else in the dirt inlet. Alot of times a pin or nail will turn sideways and get stuck, then debris builds up and will clog up. It is either that or you are trying to vacuum up too big of things. ... Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright 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.

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?
