Having problems with your Eureka Sanitaire Commercial SC785 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Hello, I have a Eureka Sanitaire upright vacuum. It is not picking up as well it usual and I notice it no longer has that deep motor sound. What do you suggest?


Answers :

Does there seem to be good air-flow and suction? If not, look for a blockage somewhere. Otherwise (and more likely because of what you say about the sound), look to the brush roller. Does it rotate when the machine's switched on? If so, maybe the bristles are worn and no longer make contact with the carpet properly. If not, the belt that drives the brush roller is broken and must be replaced. Your Owner Manual will tell you how to do this.  Good luck!

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop. The sound only happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned off in the normal upright position. The sound does not happen when the lower unit and main housing are both laying flat. I took

Recently my central vac system started making a louder than usual and laboured sound when in uise, enough so that I took note and inspected the canister and motor while running. The motor was trowing off blue sparks and looked like it could 'POP' at any moment. I will not risk using it until I know what the problem is and how to repair it. My assumption is the motor needs to be replaced. The system came with the resale house I bought 3 yrs ago but I do not know the age of the system itself.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions

I noticed the Roomba's brushes were not sweeping, or turning so they could sweep. There was a new sound coming from the machine, the sound of grinding nylon! Upon inspection, I determined the problem to be a heat melted gear support hole. The hole was no longer round but oblong. You could see a ridge of plastic around this hole. So melting I believe was the culprit. The gear that uses that hole was then able to tilt to one side, thereby allowing the gear to disengage from the drive train. I

I have a Necchi 522, an early mechanical stretch stitch machine. The timing and stitching are great, but over the past few projects I have noticed a balky tendency when I press the knee bar. After my last project the motor almost won't engage. Sometimes there is no sound, and sometimes there is a weak whirring, but no action until I push the hand wheel. I have a feeling that it is either the v belt or that the motor needs new brushes. Are either of these ideas likely, and if so, are they self

Stopped running My mother's Oreck vacuum sound as if there was something bogging the rotating brush down. I pulled the bottom cover off and found nothing wrapped around or restricting the brush.

Motor just makes 4 or 5 small clicking noises when you pull the trigger, then stops. The little lights illumintae around the "max" button as well. However, the motor does not engage in the slightest. There is no blockage at all. I have owned the vac for 10 months and know the sounds of blockage and clear them immediately. I just used it in the morning, plugged it back in and it has not worked since. Any ideas?

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

I am losing suction and it sounds as if there is a leak in the vacuum(I hear air rushing around). There is also a high pitched noise. Dyson dc07.

It wont be a gasket problem - they don't tend to fail. \015\012\015\012A high-pitched noise can be a number of different things. That is too vague to diagnose on here with the description you have given. Can you be more specific? ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
