Having problems with your Electrolux Oxygen 3 Upright Vacuum Cleaner - EL5035 Vacuum ?

Height adjustment The height adjustment button on my upright is nonfunctional.  The Height is set closest to the floor and it makes it difficult to move on medium height carpet.


Answers :

You'll have to turn the upright to its side to show the sole plate where the rolling brush is. Check where the front wheels are located and ensure there is no blockage obstructing the rotary dial. Sometimes the spring mechanisms can work themselves loose. \015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012Inevitably you'll have to remove the sole plate and/or the rotary dial which may be screwed down. If it has cracked then you may have to seek a replacement. \015\012

I have the Dyson DC14 and its like it's not brushing the carpet anymore, The brush is spinning, but its like it isn't self adjusting to the carpet height? It still has suction, but doesn't make the same sound it used to when you'd start vacuuming. Its like it never adjusts anymore???

I just installed new carpeting and the vacuum makes deep tracks ( 4 of them, corresponding to the grates on the underside). They are so deep, I am concerned it will score or even cut the carpet. There is no height adjustment so I cannot raise it. Thank you

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No


Hi\015\012The Miele uprights (S170 and upwards) with the Powerhouse title are ALL Panasonic uprights which have been at one time sold in the UK. Therefore the upright may use TWO drive belts which need to be looked at: Take off the sole plate a ... Vacuums

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum...
