Small length of reinforced plastic hose (about 5 inches) viewed from the bottom may be ruptured, you may also need to replace a worn brush assembly. They seem to fail both at the same time, I have just replaced them on my DC 07.

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair. This works well but obviou

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright position it won't pick anything up. It also doesn't seem to be self propelled anylonger either. It use to **** everything up, including the dog. Please help!
The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck! ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright 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 have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?
There is something stopping it up,you will have to dissasemble the unit to find the blockage,this is the most likely problem. ... Hoover U6660-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

My Hoover Windtunnel, 12-amp, UGG16-900 (or U6616-900 - hard to make out the "G"s from the "6"s) suddenly lost suction this morning. The dirt collection thing is completely clean (I always clean it out after using), the side filter is dirty but not destructively so, and I can see nor feel any obstructions in the hoses. Should I take it in (a real hassle in NYC) or get a new dyson? LOL.
Usually on this machine the door/valve assembly is to blame. if something gets caught in the door/valve assembly it can break this part. you can take it in to see what the est. would be. hope this helps ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
My bissell 3522 powerforce is not sucking up the debris. I have to use the hose attachment and even then, it doesnt pick up like it should. I have to run along the same section several times.

The vacuum used to pick up great and now it doesnt want to what could be the problem?
The hose that leads from the brush area to the bagless area is clogged. You will probably have to remove or partrially remove the hose to clean it out. You might get away with sucking on the hose (reverse direction) with another vacuum. If you don ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
Many vacuums have internal thermal switches that need to cool to allow the vac to operate. After 30 minutes, check all 3 air filters and try again.\012Gary ... Bosch BSG71310UC Bagged Canister Vacuum

My dyson seems to have lost its suction therefore is not picking up anything yet i have found that when my dyson is standing upright it has a little more suction but nothing like how it use to work. This has only happend in the last 2 weeks. I sanded a floor & though the sander picked up majority of the dust i did use the dyson to pick up the excess and it is since then that my dyson has not been working to its full potential.

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.
First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums
I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel that has been used twice both times at Christmas to pick up pine needles. It really has never been used because my cleaning ladies come every week and use their own machine. The problem I have is that the machine just doesn't pick up anything. Can you help. It's not overuse that is the problem!
You may have the ductwork of the cleaner plugged up with the pine needles. First, unplug the hose from the cleaner and find if you have suction into the bag. If so, check the hose and ducts for blockage from the pine needles. ... Vacuums
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
Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested.\015\012Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My Hoover U5491900 Anniversary Windtunnel will not pick up very well, there is good suction when I use the attachments, but when I use it on the floor it won't pick up much, what is wrong with it and how can I fix it?
The reason why it is not picking up well is because the belt is worn or stretched and it can't turn the brush (which picks up debris) against the resistance of the carpet. Here is the belt you need: ... Hoover U5491-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??
If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel f ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?
Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone. The collection tank should have a air exit vent--is it clear? Check the interior hose that you ... Hoover F6213-900 SteamVac Agility TurboPOWER Steam Vacuum Vacuum
