Having problems with your Dirt Devil Vacuums ?

I have a dirt devil easy steamer deep cleaner that is a few years old but only used once or twice. I am currently trying to use it and when the unit is suctioning I hear a popping sound and then I lose suction. What could be wrong and how do I fix it?


Answers :

I have always bought dirt devils and this last on that I got is bad it dose not clean by the base boards like the others it dose not pickup stuff from the floor like the others, when you add one of the attachments to it that takes away from the sucking power and that power brush is a joke. I used it twice and it broke. I am not happy with this one at all.I have thought real hard about changing to a differant brand.I don't know what happened but something has to change.

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.


The problem is that your belt is stretched and worn. This causes that burning smell and it also causes the vacuum to not pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need and the manual with instructions: ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

I have a Euro-Pro Shark Steam Pocket Mop. I used it twice last year, and then it stopped producing steam. Is there any way that I could easily fix this without dangerous chemicals? Everytime I call the company, I can't get anyone. The unit heats up, but doesn't produce steam. I've tried white vinegar to no avail.

It sounds as though a belt is rubbing or slightly off-track. The sound is extremely loud. We've removed the plate around the brush bar, made sure the brushes are free of dog hair, and found that the belt appears to be on track. What should we try now? We haven't tried to use it to check for suction for fear of doing real damage! Thank you. Marcia VanDyne


Is the sound coming from the head unit where the belt is attached? When you power up the vac, can you watch the belt to see if it is frayed or running off track.

Help hi there. i have a hoover savvy u8172-900 vaccum. the hose has great suction, but there is limited suction on the main unit and the brush does not spin when i try to use the product. we have cleared the brush of any debris and have also installed a new bag. a few days ago, we disconnected the hose to make sure there was not any foreign bodies stuck in the unit...nothing seems to help. any advise?


As the hose fits into the base (if i am correct) the power at the base should be fine, make sure the base is clean and free from blockage,\015\012you say the brush doesn't spin, has the belt broken, if so replace it, (very cheap) and only a couple of ...

I just received a Sharper Image SI724 Hybrid GP air purifier and it will not turn on. There is a green light that comes on at the bottom front of the unit, but the light on the top do not show any color and do nothing. I have tried to clean the fine wires to no avail. Is it just a bad unit or is there an in-home fix I could use?


If you just got it and it doesn't work ... you should return it for an adjustment. If you fool with it, you will probably void any warranty there may be on the device. ... Vacuums

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current


I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?\015\012There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airfl ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

I have an Electrolux LITE upright carpet cleaner - about 15 years old. Suddenly last night when using it, from the normal motor (whooshing) sound, the motor suddenly went very slow and with a slight grinding sound. The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner? I have tried to open the machine from the bottom to see if anything is obviously wrong, but it looks complicated a

I had plugged it in to use it, turned it on and instantly it made a pop sound, smelled of electrical, and would not turn on after. i even waited for a while let the smell go away and tried a different plug in the house and still no operation of any kind. Is there an internal fuse that i could check on this? where is it located?

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?

I am losing suction and it sounds as if there is a leak in the vacuum(I hear air rushing around). There is also a high pitched noise. Dyson dc07. Can there be leaks in the gaskets where you clean hoses and filter? are they replaceable. Does the noise suggest the bearings are going in the motor?Is it worth getting fixed?


It wont be a gasket problem - they don't tend to fail. \015\012\015\012A high-pitched noise can be a number of different things. That is too vague to diagnose on here with the description you have given. Can you be more specific? ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced


There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

Double check hose placement, making sure you have the hose inserted into the correct slot. The long attachment nozzle stores in the front hole on the right, and the sucking hose inserts into the rear hole on the right. I know this is too simple of a ... Vacuums
