Can't get the filter to stay up inside the cannister

Answers :

This may seem obvious, but do you still have the retainer for the filter? I'm not sure how old your unit is, but in the newer ones there should be a black piece (the retainer) that pushes in to the cylinder that the filter slips over. You should push this piece up until it stops, and then turn it so that it locks in place. I have had people throw this piece out by accident when they empty the container.

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

I've checked the hoses, brush, and brushed out the inside of the plastic container, but hasn't helped. Ideas??

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.

You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums
