The kick stand that lowers the vacuum when in use got in a position where the red foot pedal would not come back up to bring the wheels down and the vacuum rest in the upright position. We took it apart and corrected the position, but the side with the small circular spring came out and we are not sure how to attach it back, exactly where it hooks onto. Can you help show us where it goes?

The vacuum won't start. I used it for about an hour and then turned it off and when I went to turn it back on ..there was no response. I cleaned every compartment on the machine and it's still not working. I also tried using a different outlet in the house. I've waited 24 hours thinking maybe it might have been just the vacuum over heating, but it's still not working.

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

While using my Dyson a rug got caught and that ratcheting sound started. I removed all signs of strings, etc until the brushes rotated fine but when I started the Dyson the ratcheting started again. I have the DC 14 Animal.


The rattly sound means the drive belt has snapped or the protective clutch has slipped. This needs repair by someone who knows how to repair Dysons officially. Sadly its the kind of model that can't be done by the owner. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have the eureka capture vacuum and it works great; however, it has recently started making an extremely high pitched sound when I use it.

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

I have a Dyson upright vacuum cleaner makes a helluva racket whilst in use. Called up Dyson and they told me to flip the floor/carpet knob 10 times back and forth. That did the trick for a short while and it started again. Continue attempts useing that technique does not work.

I should have bought a Eureka or something, at least it would have been less expensive. I

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.

My pet hair eraser rotating brush does not rotate. I read the manual and cleaned the brush and placed it back correctly, but it is not working when I am using it.
