I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part would cost and can it be done by a beginner. We fix a lot of things ourselves but we aren't mechanics by no means. We put a brand new belt on it. I don't think it can be put on backwards and brush turns fine. Where is the switch? Use layman's terms.
You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the ... Vacuums
I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards! I can get it to go forward if I push really hard (i guess it is good for a workout!). I try to turn off the propel feature completely, but it will not turn off. please help!
Hi, the problem you are having is going to be with the switch that controls the forwards and backwards settings so with this stuck in backwards their is no way you can get this turned off, the other problem is your not going to be able to replace thi ...

I have the Kenmore Model 116.36722600 Vacuum; while cleaning the carpets the vacuum all of the sudden stop working; I didn't smell anything burning; it was almost like someone unplugged it. I checked the rollers and I can move it forward and backwards with no problem. Do you think the motor just burned out? Does this vacuum have a fuse that I can reuse? I love this vacuum and would hate to toss it. thank you
I have a Hoover Windtunnel vacuum cleaner and new high pile carpet. The vacuum cleaner will not move forward without extreme effort. I have been told that I need a vacuum without a beater bar and that the beater bar can be disengaged. How do I accomplish that? Thanks

Vacuum dead I have oreck XLx2 bagged upright - the belt ,plug and cord have been replaced - has been working great - now went to plug it in and it does not work - the light goes on in the on/off switch so power is working but vacuum is dead - any suggestions
If the cord coming from the bottom up to the handle is loose, and is a plug, push it in. If that doesn't help. then could be a problem with the motor. One other thing to check is inside the handle, maybe a wire came loose. ... Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Pensare Vaccum Hi: I have an older Pensare hand held vacuum. It's the T-Rex, mod # 1505. My daughter lost the filter with the plastic frame around it that goes inside. I love the vacuum, it works great, so I don't want to buy another one and add to the land fills. Can I buy a replacement filter for it? Thanks! Autumn Moore 503-481 1817

The power goes off and on when using my vacuum. When I push my vacuum forward, intermittently it loses power.
Almost certainly there's a broken wire within the electric flex. This usually happens where there's most bending and pulling - that is, where the flex enters the machine or where it enters the plug. You'll need to get someone to either shorten the fl ... Vacuums

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

My Bissell Proheat 12 amp is hard to push forward(whether on or off). There is a loud clicking noise when pushing forward and it ''jumps'' up on every loud click. It's OK when pulling backwards, sprays and vacuums up water. Belt appears OK. Thanks

Why does my vacuum leave a trail of hair on my floors when it's being pulled backward but suction up fine when it's going forward?
It is because the belt is worn and stretched. when you go forward there isn' t as much resistance and the brush can turn and pick up, but when you go back there is more resistance and doesn't pick up. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is the ... Eureka 5849A Boss Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Bissell pet hair eraser model #3920. It's been working great until last night. I went to use it and the brush won't spin. It also smells like it's burning.

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.
The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
