Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.


I know bissell vacuums are very cheap but they should last more than 3 years. there should be two parts to the dirt cup. remove the dirt cup and above it there should be a round plastic part. unscrew it and check that filter. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

Electrolux Genesis 1572F: 1) One of the two spring/clips/whatever that hold the upright upright for storage has busted. What is the part called? Where might I find a spare? Or should I go to a machine shop? 2) The power cord retainer thingy on the back of the handle grip has broken; any idea about part#, name of part, where to look? (I can't find a manual or whatever, exploded parts diagram, etc., online. I guess this is the planned obsolescence thing--after all, the machine is hardly even 2

Heater/fan issues I have a Honeywell - Year Round Fan with 1500W Heater that shuts off within five minutes if the fan is not running too. I don't have the oners manual and can't find one online. I have read several reviews that say the same thing. The heat does do much good when the fan above it is blowing cold air. Any ideas?


There is a safety switch which will shut the heater element off if the fan doesn't run. If the fan doesn't circulate air, the element would overheat and could possibly start a fire, so the switch will shut the element down. I'm not familiar with this ... Vacuums

Dear Sir: I just purchased a Bissell Rug Shampooer at a garage sale. The only thing I find for a model is on the back and it says Model 1695 there. Nothing on front. It is Navy blue and has a grey tank on it with a smaller one inserted at bottom of the large tank. It has two switches on the back of it and the trigger switch at the handle. The cleaner works, BUT, it does not extract any water back into the tank that is to pick up the dirty water. Could you suggest what I may look at t

Every time I try to vacuum my apartment with my Dirt Devil Featherlite bagless vacuum, it shuts off before I have finished one or two rooms. I then have to wait 30 minutes before continuing. I had the vacuum for 2 months before exchanging it and it is doing the same thing with my new one. It seems to happen after the first time I empty the cannister. Any ideas?


Your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck. ... Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum

Hello, I have a Riccar 8000. The belt works, the bar spins, and it will **** things up. However, it will not pick up threads and dog hair or anything from the carpeting. Mu husband took the bottom off and there were a couple of small parts on the plate. We have no idea where they belong. Could not see them in the photos in the manual. Could it possibly need a new roller? Any help would be most welcome. Thank you! Mary Simon

Press the power button on - good got a green light (new battery) press the clean button - got a green light iRobot runs for a couple of seconds and stops, then starts, then stops. After two or three times I now have a red light on for the Status. All of the wheels seem to be clean. I used compressed air to clean the underside. But still have the start stop problem.

Dust buster won't hold a charge, even if I let power run down to nothing and then charge it for a full day or two. This is the 2nd dust buster that has done the same thing. When I first take the item from the charger, it appears to have a very strong charge. Then within a minute, I cannot pick anything up. Thanks for your help.

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 clicks as it is going and stops after about 30 seconds. Two beeps. I have tried cleaning brushes and have pretty much taken the whole thing apart, cleaned the motor, the brushes everything. Still doing to same thing, when this has worked before.

The suction is good, but it can't pick up most of the stuff on the floor. The hand held hose works very well, but it doesn't even pick up little fuzzies reliably when I push it along. And, the suction is too hard I think because it used to push easily and now I have to push really hard, even on flat carpet.


Check entire length of hose, including the piece in the power head, for clogs. Simply drop a marble in one end and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't, then the hose is clogged somewhere. ... Dyson DCO7 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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 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

Isn't picking up lint. Will pick up other things like flecks of paper but will not get any fuzz or fibrous material off any rug no matter what the setting. This is a recent problem. Have owned the vacuum for awhile and never seen this issue before. Is it an easy fix? I've cleaned the brush, cleaned out the filters, cleaned the dirt tank. Nothing changed.


Is the brush turning on the bottom of the machine ? If not It could be clogedup with stuff or the belt could be worn on it and it will turn but as soon as it contacts the floor it will stop turning. The belt is easy to replace by removing screw ... Bissell 3576 CleanView II Bagless Upright Vacuum

I just bought a Hoover Power Drive Concept Two Electronic vacuum from the thrift shop. It only needed two belts and seems powerful. But i don't understand what the small red button on the handle marked "Release Drive" means. Thanks for any insight! Anything else i need to know about this machine? Is it a good one? Are there high-performance bags available for it?

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt.

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!
