Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?
Lid won't close
\015 I opened the machine to change the bag. Now it won't close. I'm afraid to push too hard in case I would break the plastic hinges.\015
You have probably closed it by now :-) but when this happened to us we \012found that if we opened the tool compartment on the lid, the main lid \012then closed on the bag with a tiny bit of jiggling around. I don't know\012 why, but this worked.
You might have the vacuum bag in incorrectly. Pull your vacuum bag all the way out, and check the cardboard for arrows (as some bags are cut to go in one way, and one way only). If your vacuum has a cartridge that the vacuum bag goes into, make sure that this is seated completely, securely, and correctly. After you have checked all of this, seat your lid meaning make sure it is going to sit correctly on the housing, then as you are closing the lid, check the latch as it begins to close - making sure that the male and female portions are going to match up. You may have to give it a little pressure, but should not have to put enough pressure to break anything. Good luck.

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
Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter, it seems that some of the dirt suctioned is actually being pulled into the filter intead of the canister
One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic 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.
