I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit......it is dry, dry, dry.

OK. I'm not familiar with this particular vacuum, but I think you've said enough for me to give you some clues. Suction is one thing - air flow is another. If you've got good suction against your hand, then the problem is low air flow, and that's alm ... Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

My Bissell Pro Heat Pet will spray water but not pick it up when cleaning the carpet. Is there anything I can do to fix it? The furniture attachment hose picks up water well. It seems like it could be a bit more powerful of a draw on water. I don't know it that has something to do with why the floor cleaning sucktion doesn't work. Thank you for your time. Jenn

... Hoover U5018-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

Hi. DC14 not running. Repeated pressing of the switch occasionally produces a split second whirr from the motor.
