Having problems with your Easy Flo EF1500 Vacuum ?

We just purchased a house with the Easy Flo central vacuum system. When we opened the canister to empty it we discovered a bag or something hanging down into the canister. It is covered with dust, dirt, hair and who knows what. Do we change it or clean it?


Answers :

Hi Trudi,

Yes, you can wash it in warm water with a mild \015\012detergent. Be sure that the bag is completely dry before putting it back on.

Should you ever decide you want to replace it, just do a google search for your vacuum make and model number and several websites will be advertising for your business.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. It keeps me working here... Thanks,

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.

Roomba is not picking up dirt but does pick up dust. That is, the dust chamber has dust in it but the dirt chamber is empty. The brushes don't have any fluff on them either which is not normal. The fan is blowing out plenty of air, the filter has been cleaned but we suspect the brushes aren't turning. an you help?

I am working on a u5290-900 hover vacuum ,when operating dust leaks out under dirt cup cover. i put a piece of card board on top of cover so extra presure would be applied to the top of cover. this seams to have stoped the leak , before adding the card board the cover seamed to lift at the back when cover was locked into place. what do you think?

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.

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.

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I have a Bissell Steam Cleaner that is not sucking up the water when cleaning. I used a full container of water and when it was empty I emptied out the water, only to find very little dirty water in it. I noticed the window, as i used it, seemed like it wasnt sucking up the water. I took the plastic cover off to clean it (it didnt look very dirty in the first place), an i noticed that the grey plastic flap was on but not moving up or down. I thought there may be dirt in it that prevented it from

I have a Napoleon Pellet stove insert Model NPI40. When the fire burn rate is extremely low it seems to operate normally. However, when I turn the heat up even a little I eventually get a high pitched noise that seems to be coming from the convection blower. Changing the speed of the blower has no effect on the noise level. I cleaned the blower but did not remove it. There was very little dust on it. Cleaning had no effect on the volum or pitch of the noise.


My theory is based upon 1st hand knowledge with a newer EPA compliant freestanding wood burner, with the air-tight and high efficiency ratings.its possible that its just the high rate of air moving through the air chambers , similar to a o ... Kenmore Whispertone 23312 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
