Having problems with your Bissell 6596 Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Actually have model 6594. no suction. any suggestions?
If you hear the motor running and the vacuum is not sucking up debris, I would believe you have a problem with the beater brush.\015\012Problems with this brush are usually caused by 1 or 2 if not both of these problems:\015\0121- The drive belt for the brush is broken.\015\0122- The brush itself is frozen due to debris. Remove brush and clean all debris off. Pay special attention to end pieces of the brush that hold it in the vacuum. The brush should rotate around these two pieces. Clean ends and spray on a little WD40 and turn to work it so that the brush turns freely.\015\012If you find the brush is frozen and needs to be cleaned, probably a good idea to put a new belt on at the same time.\015\012Be sure the belt is put on correctly so the brush turns in the proper direction.\015\012Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

I was vacuuming the vent in the bottom of the fridge. I must have picked something because the motor got wildly noisey. I cleaned out hoses, etc. There is no suction. I can see the blades of the motor and they are not turning around. Model U4269-930 Series B.72. Can I get at the motor to see if something is keeping the blades from turning? What would be your suggestion. Many thanks. Pat Sauerman

I havethe first generation purple Dyson Animal model. The brush rotates fine, but doesn't make sufficient contact with the floor/carpet, therefore does not pick up most items on carpets (suction still works however). If I put my foot on it and push down a little, it works. However, since I'm not an accomplished acrobat, this is not easy to do. :-) Any suggestions on whether this is fixable? Or should I just save up to buy a new one?

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

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

No suction My Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum runs but there is no suction. The last two or three times I used it, it shut itself off after having a burning smell. When I unplug it for the suggested 30 minutes, the motor will run again but no suction. What is wrong?? Should I just buy a nve one? This one is 8 years old.
Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches. So, your machine is overheating, melting the belt, and then ... Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

Lost suction I've only used this vacuum a few times, it's practically brand new. Now, one I turn it on, it sounds fine, and the hose feels as if it's getting some suction, but it's not strong enough to actually **** things up from the carpet into the canister. I have completely emptied the canister and bought a new filter. Nothing seems to help.
