Piece of chalk sucked into vacuum

\015 I accidentally sucked a piece of chalk my vacuum and now I can tell the suction is horrible. \302\240I'm not sure if it's stuck somewhere or what the problem is.\015

Answers :

Yes, it is stuck somewhere in the vacuum. Turn it upside down, and you will probably find it lodged. Also could be lodged in hose somewhere.

LOSING SUCTION IT APPEARS WHEN IN UPRIGHT POSITION, ALTHOUGH SUCKING (TO SOME DEGREE) IT THROWS BACK SMALL PIECES TO THE BACK OF THE VACUUM OPNTO THE CARPET BEHIND, AND THE CONTAINER HOLDING THE STUFF ISNT WHIRLING AROUND THE CONTAINER. I WONDER IF THE PASSAGE TO THE WIND TUNNEL IS BLOCKED, AND OF COURSE THAT IS THE PART I CANNOT GET TO, AS IT NEEDS A SPECIAL TOOL TO UNSCREW THE BACK OF THE VACUUM.

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage

U-Shaped piece I was in the hospital for a couple of nights and my 80 year old mother decided to go to my house and vacuum my house. When I went to get it out to vacuum the other night the u shaped part fell off. I guess my mom had somehow knocked it off. Now I cannot figure out where it goes. It is a plastic U-shaped piece. Can you help me? I sat for a hour trying to figure out where it goes.

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.

Hi I’ve got a Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC E468 1600W a few years old now but works well up to recent problem. Not picking up I checked the obvious things and found excessive air being sucked in around the hose housing at the back of the vacuum (as it enters the waste bag) On inspection it appears to me as if there should be some sort of gasket that may have perished and been sucked in, however I can’t identify any such part. Any thoughts on what the problem/solution may be will be appreciate


The hose on the back might be loose - check to see that the hose is not obstructing anything where it screws in at the back - or indeed the screws may be loose themselves; some of the MCE 468 models had an additional ring washer that sits between the ... Panasonic Vacuums

Carpet vacuum attachment quit working after sucking up a bedskirt. Bedskirt has been removed but carpet attachment will not work.

Clogged vacuum Rather stupidly, my boyfriend 1) were vacuuming without a bag and 2) vacuumed up a big piece of cotton from a sofa cushion. And now it's making a horrible noise and I see it vibrating where the tube connects to the machine. When you look inside there's a white thing sticking out but it looks like it's part of the vacuum. If it's a clog, how do you fix it? I tried unscrewing the tray the bag sits in but it won't budge.


You can start by taking off the bottom plate or top cover, which ever comes off, that is where the inlet starts going in and hopefully the clog is there. Could be in the hose also.
