Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

It leaves dirt and fluff in the rollers not in the filter. So is not cleaning properly. There is never anf fluff at all in the filter. Also the lid does not close properly and we constantly get the 'check tank' light coming on. It leaves streaky marks across the floor and seems to leave the floor too wet (hence the streaks). Look forward to hearing from you.

Def no choked probs, as I check and clean filters regularly, but when switched on there seems to be a short whineing sound before returning to normal, and def wont lift fluff etc., just runs over it, although ther seems to be a fair amount of suction. It does clean but not properly

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu


Did you check the powerhead for obstructions? With a bend in the tube just below where the hose connects, this is a common spot for clogs. To check, detach hose and drop a coin in the hole. If it doesn't drop through, a blockage is present. Use t ... Electrolux Oxygen 3 Upright Vacuum Cleaner - EL5035 Vacuum

My dyson dc07 brush bar seems to be only spinning at half speed. Leaves three light streaks in the vacuum marks like somethings just dragging. Brush bar is clear and filters are clean. Seems like there's slipping somewhere.

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?


There is something stopping it up,you will have to dissasemble the unit to find the blockage,this is the most likely problem. ... Hoover U6660-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

My Bissel powerforce 6596 has suction but the dirt is not making it into the dirt cup. If I shut it off, the dirt drops to the floor. Also the motor seems to be over heating. All filters are clean. I can't find any obstruction.


Just because you cant see the obstruction doesnt mean theres not one. The hose could be stopped up somewhere not visible to your eyes. I have one and I have to take hose off and apart to clean it out. check the roller. Is it rolling? ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a DC 15 Dyson Ball Vacuum. I've removed and cleaned the filter. I can't get the lid to close properly. I don't want to force it and break something. There is some kind of a red spring loaded tab that seems to be in the way. How do I reseal the top of the vacuum?


The red tab doesn't let the lid close if the filter is not fitted correctly or the wrong filter is fitted. Many after-market filters cause this problem. \015\012\015\012Have you recently fitted a new after-market filter? ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Does the epic 3500 have a belt? It seems that when running on the carpet setting, it is very noisy and is not picking up the way it should. When we run it on the floor setting, it sounds better, but the rolloer doesn't go around to fluff the carpet. What is wrong?


Yes, it does. It definitely sounds like a broken belt. And the noise would probably be due to the belt still being in the machine and hitting the motor shaft.\015\012Due to some difficulty in reassembling the powerhead and getting the belt to ... Electrolux Epic 3500 Vacuum

The motor runs slow (so does not pick up properly) and does not run at all if the hose is pulled out. There doesn't seem to be a blockage and the roller is clean. Could it be as simple as changing the filters?

Why does my dyson slim dc18 keep shutting down, even though i keep it clean. Filters area is clean and all others have been properly blown out with air from a air compressor. It will work for about 5-10 minutes and then shuts down. Smells like ****, check the belt and a bit later it restarts again. It's seems to be almost over heating.


Maybe your motor is going. Here's a link to a site that talks about motor failure and replacement in a DC07 (not DC18). I don't know exactly what the odor smells like but maybe you can see if you have any of the other symptoms. Good luck! ...

My bissell vacuum cleaner seems to just move dirt and paper around on the floor rather than suctioning it up. I checked the filters, any suggestions?


Sounds like you have a clog in the machine somewhere. Check under the machine where the dirt feeds into the bag. If their is a power head on this the belt is probably broken or stetched. Hope this helps ... Bissell Vacuums

I know this sounds like a dumb problem to have for a vacuum but our 6 year old dyson has so much suction you can't move it across the floor. It only recently started doing this and I haven't done anything to it such as clean the filters in over 6 months. Any help would be appreciated

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.

Dyson DC07: When I first got this vacuum, it was so powerful that it lifted my area rugs off the floor. It is so weak it barely works. I have removed and cleaned the filter, but I can?t seem to improve the suction. What am I doing wrong? How do I fix it?


Hello,\015\012\015\012If your vacuum runs but still leaves dirt behind, the culprit could be the drive belt or an obstruction. If the agitator brush slips or won't turn, the belt is bad and needs to be replaced. If suction is weak when yo ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Sears shop vac.... i tipped it over this morning and the filter came off. No big deal, but there was a plastic or PVC cup inside, and i can't figure out whether the opening of this cup should face up [ceiling] or face down [floor]. I can't find my manual around, so i need help..... seems like it's leaking dust from the out port now, so.....?


You may need to better describe the cup on the filter, but if it has a handle on it, it's the end cap. The handle part will face the floor and you should be able to screw the cap on, securing the filter. ... Vacuums

Hi i have a Meile cat and dog TT500 and it is shooting out dust. cannot find instruction manual to see if i have inserted filters properly, i have bought a new charcoal air filter but lid will not close properly when i put it in, has someone got a pic of how it should look, if its not the filters what could it be.


As far as the filter, either it isn't in all of the way, or it is the wrong one as there are several different ones.\015\012\015\012TT500 doesn't come up as a good model number, should start with a S then 3 numbers and end with an i. It ... Vacuums

No vacuum My Floormate has plenty of air moving, but no vacuum at the nozzle. When I turn it on, the filter hops up to the black rubber "intake", rather than staying in its spot. It seems to me that the intake should be in contact with the filter when the reservoir is installed. And I don't understand why the intake isn't closer to it, but it seems fixed there, almost an inch higher than the filter. When I remove the bottom reservoir and turn the h3000 on, I feel vacuum at the intake, and air


Someone must have lost the filter cover from the machine. It is a clear blue plastic cover that goes over the filter and has a hole that lines up with the motor intake. It is approx. 3 inches square and has an angular top to coincide with the motor i ... Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
