How to get rid of dog smell
\015 Everytime I run vacuum -it smells of wet dog. We do have a dog but our dog has never smelled like that. I have cleaned everything from filter,etc. and nothing works.\015
I had this problem along with a clogged filter. I used the solution for clogged filter here on Fixya and the dog smell went away too. It has to do with the flange on the cylinder getting pushed up out of position. Give it a try.
Wash your filter and let it dry well also use a couple times some of the odor eliminator powder for carpets that they sell at the store . And make sure you do not vacuum any food because the odor stays.

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

Cleaning Filter Hi: I want to clean the filter on the B&D pet hepa vacuum, but can't figure out how to take it out of its housing. I can remove the housing from the actual vacuum, but don't know how to get the filter itself out. It sure does smell of dog, so any help would be appreciated.

This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units.

I slid the lever to lower the feed dogs and now (like so many other people have posted on the internet) I can't get them back up! I've sought out answers on the Singer website have called/emailed them but with no results. I slid the lever to the up position for the feed dogs and rotated the hand wheel towards me several times (I was told this is what should raise them) but that didn't work. Does anybody on God's green earth know how to raise those stupid feed dogs???
Rotating the hand wheel will not move them. The lever should slide back from whence it came. Make sure you don't have the needle down among the dogs before you try to move it. The presser foot should also be raised first.\015\012Perhaps some ... Vacuums
I've got a Kenmore canister vacuum, Progressive 236123, and there's a burning smell from the belt side of the head--smells a lot like hot rubber. I've cleaned the agitator and changed the belt, but I still get the smell. It's stronger when I'm using "carpet" mode than when I'm using "bare floor" mode. Any ideas what the problem is?

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.
