There is something stuck in the handle of my Miele vacuum. I unscrewed all the screws hoping that I could remove the hard plastic handle from the hose. I was only able to flip up a piece of plastic where the switch is. Should I pull harder to pry the plastic apart? I was afraid I'd break something. Thank You, Chrissy

I have a Flex hand held vacuum. It turns on, the motor works, air is blowing out of the side vent very forcefully, but it is not picking up anything with the hose - no suction at all. My hose does not seem to be clogged.

I cannot fit a Miele SF-AH 50 Active HEPA filter into my S524 Miele vacuum. It doesn't seem to have the rear tabs in the right place to push it into place all the way. When I put it into the place, the top won't close. I'm afraid I'll break something if I force it down. What is wrong?

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta

You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

I have an Aerus Guardian canister vacuum with a clogged hose. The tiny stuffed animal toy is lodged right below where the swivel handle meets the hose. Switching the air flow does not dislodge it. I would like to remove the handle from the hose. Any suggestions?

Consider this. If your vacuum is still under warranty, removing the hose will void the warranty on the hose. I strongly recommend calling an authorized dealer/consultant.\012Although it may seem to be fairly simple to remove the handle, there ... Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

My handle won't go back up after an extended vacuuming session during which I used the hand/broom/animal hair attachments several times, thus pulling the hose out/putting it back in, starting/ stopping, and suddenly no matter what I do short of forcing it (and even if I try forcing it a bit) I can't raise the handle to put it away.

No suction vacuum won't pick up -- I've checked the bag, hose...and it seems to have no sucking power. The internal hose may be jammed (I vacuumed up a lot of shredded paper), but nothing as far as I can stick in fingers in. I don't have a metal coat hanger to slip down, but I'm afraid that might tear the hose and then the darn thing won't work anyway. :o(

If it is plugged, try using a tape measure, i know it sounds stupid but it will work to unplug your line and will not tear your hose.. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Suction I too have the same problem as Mr. Chief. I followed your advice and checked all the hose attachments, no clog. Tthe only one hose that the broom handle would not pass through was the plastic hose and there is a curve in that part. I did not want to force the broom in there as this is a new vacuum and is probably under warranty.

If you have a plumbers snake you can use that. But being under warranty, I would take it to Sears for repair. ... Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the

When running the 2100 Electrolux vacuum, it is stopping and starting when pulling or pushing the floor attachment. Seems like the connection at the top of the handle is a little loose or the electric tabs are loose where the hose connects. Any ideas?

Other option is that on the hose end of the electrical connection, you can use an awl on the electrical connections to bend them in slightly so they make good contact when they are automatically plugged in when you connect the wands.
