Hello :

1: Check that the Dyson's brushbar knob is turned to the "Carpets" setting \015\012for vacuuming non-delicate and raised pile carpet. Vacuuming carpet on \015\012the "Bare floor" setting usually leaves a telltale single wheel mark on \015\012the pile, and pickup is severely limited.

2:Locate the removable filter on the side of the vacuum. It will be marked\015\012 with a raised circular representation.

3:Press down on the release button with your thumb as you lift filter \015\012housing up and out

4:Examine the filter for debris. Wash the blue foam and yellow framed \015\012filter in cold water. (See Tips section.) Let dry for 12 hours. Do not \015\012wash the outer filter housing that snaps into the vacuum; simply wipe \015\012clean with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Replace the filter when \015\012completely dry.

5:Locate the airway inspection valve on the opposite side of the vacuum. \015\012Press the release button as you lift the valve up and away from the \015\012machine.

6:Remove any debris or clogs you find inside.

7:Use a soft cloth to clean up lighter debris and completely clear the \015\012airway valve.

8:Tip the Dyson vacuum over to find the U-bend at the back of the unit. \015\012Press the release button as you pull the U-bend down and away from the \015\012machine.

9:Inspect the U-bend and remove debris. Be sure to line up the release \015\012button as you snap the U-bend back into place.

10:Check all removable pieces to be sure they are attached properly and \015\012snapped correctly into place. The soleplate should be flush with the \015\012cleanerhead.

Warning :

Unplug the vacuum before doing any troubleshooting.

Our kenmore progressive model #11634922 was working fine today. And then - it's not. Plugged in - nothing is working on it. We let it cool down (though it didn't seem hot). Still nothing - no light, no motor. Tried it in some other plugs that we know are functioning well - and still nothing. Any idea what might be wrong with it? It's six years old but doesn't get heavy use. Thanks so much ~ Susan Golden

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.

With cleaning carpets with the Stowaway when the head gets a blockage it makes a high pitched whining sound and requires unblocking - then works fine. Now when vacuuming the head always makes the same sound when the head is against the carpet. you can also see that the rollers are slow or stopped. We have pulled the Stowaway virtually completely apart and checked for blockages as well as washed the filter and no difference. Any ideas?

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on.

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John

It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum

When I was using my Bissell ProHeat 7901, I smelled something hot (almost burnt) and turned off the vaccum. When I turned it back on, everything seemed to be working, but the vaccum part was not making the same sound. The bristles are still turning, but it isn't picking up as much and is leaving quite a bit of lint on the carpet. Could the belts be worn? How do I tell? Thanks!
