I just bought a Dirt Devil 12 Amp upright vacuum which seems to work fine but it is blowing out air in the front just under the filter housing. I see there is a vent there but should there be any air coming out during normal use? Thanks Brandon Smith
Yes. For the unit to be able to take air in from use it has to exhaust air. This is normal. ... Dirt Devil 12 Amp HEPA Filter Vacuum Vacuum

I have a Miele S5980 vacuum cleaner, and recently had to change the Hepa filter. After doing the change, I tried resetting the reset button to switch off the Hepa filter indication light and it would not switch off. After a few tries, I accidentally depressed the switch, and it has dislodged from its cradle. Help, what can I do to fix this?

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

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 was given a Kenmore progressive hepa filter 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum recently, but don't have the manual. We used it once to vacuum the house and it worked beautifully. Then we used it 5-6 days later and it started whining and getting hot. What year was this vacuum manufactured? Where can I download an owners manual?? Help!

Vacuum smells I have a 6 year old rainbow vacuum model E and it smells terrible everytime I use it. Probably because often times i don't remove the water basin after vacuuming and just let it sit.

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
