Having problems with your Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum ?
Dust is flying!!
\015 I have a very dusty house and also a dog with long hair that is shedding this time of year. When I use the hose, dust flies out all over the place. I keep cleaning the filters, but they don't seem to work anymore. I went to Target (where I bought the vacuum) and they don't have any of the correct filters or belts for this Eureka Ultima. Is there a quick solution or do I need to order parts online?\015
Bad filters could be the problem. They need to be replaced, some every 3 months or so. Also a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll.

There is an "exhaust" pipe of sorts in the lower back part of the vaccuum. Most of the dust and specially pet hair just flies out of there and up in the air. It looks like more stuff comes out than stays in the vaccuum. I'm wondering if there should be something connected to that pipe?

Dust....dust....dust Hello, I recently bought a house with an older Electrolux Central Vac system. I'm unfamiliar with them, so I'm not sure how to deal with this: I cleaned up some mortar dust with it, and noticed not too long after that when I went into the garage, there was a fog of dust. The hose from the unit is venting into the garage. Is this normal? I have since used it for everyday household cleaning and each time I go back to the garage to a cloud of dust. Is there anything I can

My problem is that dust is shooting out of my powerforce bagless bissell. I pulled and detached the filters, hitting them againt my front steps which is cement, burshing my hand across the filter . Yes there was dust coming from it there. I continued to do this until no more dust is coming from it. When I cut it back on I'm still seeing dust depris coming from the vac.

Brushes only work when Dust Bin is removed!! I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin out, and the brushes spin.... and it has much more power.... and is very clear it is working! But it's useless without the dust bin! LOL It's only 9 months old.... called customer service, but it was the one time it worked just fine! Of course, I thought I'

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

We have a beam Serenity plus home vacuum system and there is no longer sucks. I removed the dirt from the bottom plastic container, but I also notice a sack or bag connected to the unit when I removed the bottom container and inside that sack there appears to be lots of dust. How do I access that and remove that dust without damaging the unit. I don't know how to do that

So in early April I bout a new filter and it still wasn't picking up the way it had in the beginning.

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide path. I thought this one might work. This one does the same thing. It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.
Your Vac probably does not have a filter installed inside the unit, that is why fine dust escapes through the vents. Remove the dirt canister/cup from the unit and you will see a filter frame behind. Possibly the filter itself is missing or wrongly i ... Hoover U5172900 Fold Away Widepath Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!
