I had my Fantom in for repairs (filter, light, belt, and cleaning) less than 7 months ago. Now its not picking up again and the brushes are not rotating. Does this mean another belt? At $69+ every 6 months, I'm thinking of getting another vacum. Any suggestions? Thanks, Judy


Sounds like you are going to need a new belt. It also wouldn't be a bad idea to have the edges of the roller clean because hair and carpet can wind up on the edges making it harder for the roller to turn. ... Fantom Vacums FM741 Twister Bagless Upright Vacuum

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

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.

Purchased the DC28 today. Used it on family room carpet then vacuumed furniture. Took nap. Upon return started to vacuum another area. When the roller is engaged, there is a rattling noise. Removed the bin, did not help. Took off the roller plate looking for debris, did not help. Any ideas?

Hoover Bagless Hello,      My Hoover bag less (Model U5280-900) is not picking up dirt like it should.  The brush roll is spinning fine, but the bristles on it are only about one quarter inch long.  I am wondering how long they should be.  The vacuum is quite a few years old.  Do you think it is time to replace the brush roll.  Could you email me at [email protected] about this topic.  The product bar below did not contain my model no.  The correct model no. is above in my message.  Thanks

The belt broke and after putting on new belt I dicscovered the cylinder with the brushes attached wasn't turning. After I finally got the cylinder to turn it makes a very very loud noise and also now it doesn't pick up the dirt. The vacuum is less than a year old.


Check the cylinder with brushes does not have hair or carpet fibers causing it to bind. With the belt removed the brush should turn freely and fairly easy. The original belt probably broke because of this. You may have to fully dis-assemble the head ... Dirt Devil Vacuums

Hi Lula, I will try to help you. I don't know if the blower/suction motor is turning on or not, but if it's not, either a switch, wiring, or the motor is probably bad. It could also be a broken shaft to the motor, if the machine's turning on bu ... Bissell 3920 Bagless Upright Vacuum

Burned out The best way for me to describe the problem is to post reviews I made on Amazon.com, which is where I purchased them. ________________ Based on my past experience, I bought another 6 months ago. I live in a very tiny 2 room apartment and do not vacuum lots of dirt. I noticed this new vac getting very hot to the touch where the motor is located with only a few minutes of use. Today it just STOPPED. When I felt the canister, it was HOT. It obviously has burned out. Upon closer inspect

We have a 2001 Kirby G vacuum. The cleaning lady was using it in one room, then brought it to another room and plugged it into another receptacle. It wouldn't start. Naturally we tried other outlets on other circuits without success. Is a switch or motor demise this abrupt? Is it worth pursuing repair?


Hi,Such an abrupt fault is more than likely a very simple fault, such as a loose wire or damaged electrical cord or a faulty switch. I would most certainly check or have these components checked before purchasing a new machine. They should be r ... Vacuums

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.

The vacuum does not **** in dirt. It is blowing air instead. Yet when I disconnect the vacuum from the cannister, the suction seems very strong. I took it to a vacuum repairman, and he said that Kenmore sucks and I might as well get rid of it. (He wanted to sell me another one) It is 10 years old, but if I can fix it I would like to try.

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old.

The bag has been change. Any one have any ideas how to fix this?


I suspect that you have a restriction. The motor sounds like the thermal break is stopping the motor before damage, due to heat.\012You must witness that the entire suction and discharge side are clear. This is not always very easy, but necessa ... Kenmore 34612 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I was in the middle of using my vacuum when it quite on me. I tried multiple things including letting it cool off for a while as I was using it to vacuum my car outside and it was pretty hot. I also dismantled it according to the directions and looked for blockages and didn't find any and lastly I cleaned out the brush and put it back on. I am out of solutions. The vacuum is not that old; we have only had it for a few months. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You, Karen

Every time I try to vacuum my apartment with my Dirt Devil Featherlite bagless vacuum, it shuts off before I have finished one or two rooms. I then have to wait 30 minutes before continuing. I had the vacuum for 2 months before exchanging it and it is doing the same thing with my new one. It seems to happen after the first time I empty the cannister. Any ideas?


Your motor in the vacum is getting hot.Thats why it shuts off.Its fitted with a shut off switch to stop you doing any damage to it.1 The reason for getting to hot is that you are filling the cannister to full.Try emptying it half.good luck. ... Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum
