I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

Washable filters washed, HEPA filter replaced. brush bar cleaned of every scrap, hose empty,everything that can be cleared has been.

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell followed. Thought it was the belt so my husband was going to put on the new belt which I had on hand! When he turned it over, the "bar" that holds the belt looks as though it "shot through" the plastic side of the housing on the vacuum. There is melted plastic on the outside of the vacuum and o


I had the same problem. Take out the old belt if possible. Remove the 4 screws inside the filter and the 3 on the front of that housing. pull out the foam around the motor. carefully pull out the suction tube that is press fit against the motor. ... Eureka 4874 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a new bag in, checked the hoses for clogs have the motor cover off showing motor runs. Problem is vacuum has no suction in hose area, cover off where bag is and the air blows out of filter. hoses are clean no blockage.


Have you checked the filter? Many vacuums have a filter under or behind the bag to keep dust and dirt out of the motor. If this gets clogged the motor can't get any suction. Also look for holes in the hose or in the small segment between hose and bag ... Vacuums

It has no suction. It was fine yesterday. I washed the dirt container and the filter, let it dry and put it back in the vacuum. Today my vacuum isnt picking up any dirt and has no suction. When I took the hose out of the back, it started blowing dust and dirt out but still no suction.


Look for a place where the vacuum line has to turn in a near 90 degree turn. It's easy for it to get stopped up there. ... Vacuums

Sounds like a bad motor bearing. If it is, then you would have to replace it. Could be the brush roll, did you check the ends to make sure they turn easily? ... Vacuums

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu


Did you check the powerhead for obstructions? With a bend in the tube just below where the hose connects, this is a common spot for clogs. To check, detach hose and drop a coin in the hole.

I have a Flex hand held vacuum. It turns on, the motor works, air is blowing out of the side vent very forcefully, but it is not picking up anything with the hose - no suction at all. My hose does not seem to be clogged.

I have an Air Track plus vacuum cleaner and something has got stuck between the flexible part of the hose and the solid black section at the end. I tried to put a coin down to clear it but that has got stuck too. It looks like the rigid section should come apart (a small notch each side) but I can't figure how to do this.

Arrgh! I have an upright Bissell vacuum. Everytime I use it, it smells like a cloud of dust. I have made sure countless times that all the filters are clean and the hoses are intact, so I don't know what the problem is. Is this problem normal? Or am I somehow blowing dust everywhere? Any insight it much appreciated, thanks!!

I have a cannister (Animal something...) Today, it didn't sound right - like a blockage. I took out the filter - seemed OK; I looked for a blockage - found none. I continued to vacuum, but it wasn't picking up. Then, I stopped again, and I found a blockage (cat toy mouse) right at the end of the hose (attachment end.) I cleared, and I turned back on - nothing. Completely dead. It is one year old, just about exactly. Desperate, Sharon Tracy


Hello,if your canister is completely dead, then it means its having a power problem. You need to focus your attention on that part of your canister that relates to power. Such as; power wire, if you don see any fault with the power cord, ... Dyson Vacuums

It sounds like the fan blades have worn away until there's basically no air resistance, thus no air flow/suction. The whine is created by the motor turning at a higher speed due to lack of resistance. \015\012The fan wasn't covered by the wa ... Electrolux Vacuums
