Having problems with your Eureka 5849A Boss Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Clogged sweeper filters changed and hose cleaned, but no dirt collecting in the bag. I am no sure what do do next

Answers :

You have a rubber flap in the dust collection bin that may have been pulled out causing the collection bin to close when vacuum tries to pass through. Try pushing the flap back in to see if that's the cause of your vacuum loss. To test if this is the cause try turning the cleaner on and feel the outlet leading into the removable bin to see if there is any air flow. If there is no air flow, unplug the vac and run a coat hanger through the inlet tube to find and clear any obstructions. Then take the vacuum outdoors, plug it in and turn it on to clear any dust or debris left in the vacuum chamber.

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.

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

Vacuum sucks up dirt and expells it back onto the carpet as I am using it. I have replaced the bag and took the bottom off to clean - even cleaned up the area where the dirt should go to make sure it was not clogged.

My Hoover Windtunnel, 12-amp, UGG16-900 (or U6616-900 - hard to make out the "G"s from the "6"s) suddenly lost suction this morning. The dirt collection thing is completely clean (I always clean it out after using), the side filter is dirty but not destructively so, and I can see nor feel any obstructions in the hoses. Should I take it in (a real hassle in NYC) or get a new dyson? LOL.

Usually on this machine the door/valve assembly is to blame. if something gets caught in the door/valve assembly it can break this part. you can take it in to see what the est. would be. hope this helps ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
