Having problems with your Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Kicking out debris
\015 This vac kicks out the back almost as much as it sucks in. I have to vacumn where I just vacumned. HELP\015
Your vacuum will kick back dirt if there is a clog of anykind, or if the filters are dirty. First check the suction lines for any clogs, if none are found, take out your dirt cup, and take off the filters. Normally there is a foam prefilter covering a paper filter - replace both filters. The reason this happens, is that the filters allow the air flow at a specific rate, creating the suction and they cyclonic action you see when you are picking up debris. I hope this helps.

I have a vx550cc that keeps kicking in and out quickly, then shuts down for a few seconds and starts up kicking in and out again. There is lots of suction at all the outlets and sweeps. The dirt bucket has been emptied and the filter cleaned. Al the LED lights light up when the motor kicks out, then back to one green when it starts back up. This unit has worked great for four years with no problems.

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

I have a new Euro-Pro shark model S3101. Used it one time and while I was doing my tile floor in my kitchen I reached under a cabnet to clean and hit the floor kick kind of hard and broke the head off of the shark. I have only the T shaped end on the shark now with the cleaning head broken off and looks unrepairable. I did kind of hit the floor kick hard but the plastic broke like glass. Can I put a new head on the remaining piece or is it repairable? thanks Angie

On the DC07, the entire cyclone assembly must be removed to empty the dust, debris, etc. collected when vacuuming. On the top of the cyclone is a "trigger" that you lift with your finger to release the bottom catch, which allows a clear flap to open on the "clear bin," thus letting all the debris fall out. My problem is when you lift the finger trigger, it does not release the catch on the bottom. Since the catch won't release, I cannot remove the entire clear bin either from the cyclone.Any sug

Model UH60010, Series X12.0, Mfg code K09A. While attempting to use the hose and the extensions to clean shelves, my wife reported no suction. I removed the brush roller and the plastic piece just below where the hose opening is located and saw a "flapper" door that was closed and had some debris sort of jamming it. I removed the debris, but the door requires extreme pressure to open to permit the dirt, etc to moved up thru the opening , through the hose, etc. I thught maybe that somehow tg

My Dyson DC25 got stuck and wouldn't return to the upright position, I figured out that one side had jumped the track and gotten stuck in the square hole below the track. I did not want to break the plastic to force it back, so I removed the screw on the right side that was holding the kick stand on and removed the kick stand, also a spring thing came out. Problem is, now I have no idea how to re-install the kickstand. Can't find a technical manual or video anywhere, it can't be very difficul
