Clogged vacuum Rather stupidly, my boyfriend 1) were vacuuming without a bag and 2) vacuumed up a big piece of cotton from a sofa cushion. And now it's making a horrible noise and I see it vibrating where the tube connects to the machine. When you look inside there's a white thing sticking out but it looks like it's part of the vacuum. If it's a clog, how do you fix it? I tried unscrewing the tray the bag sits in but it won't budge.


You can start by taking off the bottom plate or top cover, which ever comes off, that is where the inlet starts going in and hopefully the clog is there. Could be in the hose also. But without the complete model number I can't look it up to see a p ... Kenmore 31912 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

Bad Motor I have purchased two of the Kenmore direct drive beltless systems with Progressive systems. The first died after a year, the vacuum motor start making a grinding noies. I pulled the side HEPA filter and could see a fine coating of graphite like dust. Took it to a vacuum repair shop. They said the brushes were going and thus the motor was shot.

That dust is from the carbon brushes on the motor. You may need to check them, and also clean out the motor compartment. A slight noise could be a motor bearing starting to go. Does the smell like rubber or electrical. If rubber, then the belt h ... Vacuums

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

Window 3 gives an option to set something between 0 and 2500. Oregon say they only have one set of instructions for the BAR888 but they do not match my instrument as there is nothing included for my window 3. Trouble is I don't know what the 0 to 2500 relates to and therefore don't know what to set it at.(My model does n

My A 2045 Karcher vacuum's suction is really weak and the motor seems to be working VERY hard. The motor sounds like it used to when the vacuum fell over and went into overdrive!

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?


Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it. ... Vacuums

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part. It turned on for 1 second, smells like smoke somewhere from the bottom and now won't turn back on so I don't know if anything is spinning or not. What can I do to fix this myself?

Levels/Settings I am having trouble changing the setting on my vacuum from 1 or "Low, Hard Surface" to any other setting. Without changing it, I am unable to vacuum on my carpet, since the setting is too low.

To change the setting, you need to return the hand ... Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
