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
Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?
Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

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.

Cleaning Filter Hi: I want to clean the filter on the B&D pet hepa vacuum, but can't figure out how to take it out of its housing. I can remove the housing from the actual vacuum, but don't know how to get the filter itself out. It sure does smell of dog, so any help would be appreciated.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

I have a Harmony vacuum that's a couple years old. I recently sucked a fair amount of dog hair into it and was unaware something was amiss since the things so quiet. It just shut down and wouldn't come back on. 10 minutes or so later it came back on but now it's got no sucking power. I figure I torched the motor. Good guess? What are my options--I'm out in the middle of no where but can get it to a repair shop 250 miles away. Is it worth trying to salvage or am I going to pay as much to get it f

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.
