Having problems with your Kenmore 35912 / 35913 Progressive Upright Vacuum ?
The drum is not turning when I the vacuum is on. I have good suction. What should I do?
By drum I take it you mean the beater bar on the bottom? I would check the belt and probably replace it. remove the screws holding the very bottom of the vacuum on and remove the access plate / cover. you should see the belt or whats left of it.

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!

After using the vacuum for a while it would stop running. After sitting several hours it would run again. Now it won't run at all. It was just a couple of months old and I haven't been able to use it again. It was never used much and we paid good money for what has turned out to be a poor machine. Any suggestion?

Wertheim XL180 vacuum cleaner not working The past month our XL180 would stop working after 20-40mins therefore we'd wait 1-2 hours to resume cleaning. Now it doesn't turn on at all.

While I was vacuuming it stopped. It's still plugged in and the outlet is good (other things work plugged in it). It's not clogged and it won't turn back on.
If it isnt a blown fuse in the plug, then this could be a faulty cable or switch, but could also be a faulty motor.The motor also has a built in over-current protection device which normally automatically resets itself, but if the motor h ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even household dirt, falls out. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"
