Having problems with your Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum ?

I was using the vacuum and noticed the filter had fallen down. It's making a very loud sound now. Appears the dirt might have gotten into the motor. Any way to clean this out? Any other thoughts?


Answers :

Solution: cleaned out plugged hose lines. Changed filter and made sure it snapped into place and that bottom cap was secure. Also changed hepa filter and everything is good now.

Vorwerk ET 340 - been great but now noticing strong burning smell after vacuuming some hair from the bathroom. Bag is nearly empty. Gave it a rest then unscrewed the cover housing the motor and all looks clean (dust is sucked up the pipe and doesn't appear to get near the motor). When I restarted it, burning smell still there. Are there any filters that might need changing? What could be causing the smell? Could the hair have gotten caught somewhere? Thanks.

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt. I turned the vaccum upside down and the belt appears to be broken. would a broken belt stop the pick up, there appears to be no suction. This vaccum is approximately 10 years old. is it worth fixing? I live in Virginia Beach Va, where would I take the vaccum for repair? my zip code is 23456- Thanks Cleta Goode

Hoover Windtunnel My Hoover Windtunnel is 3 years old. It worked great until yesterday when it lost all suction. I have followed the manual to trouble shoot any possible clogs and could find none. Then I noticed that when I remove the dirt collection cup and held my hand over the vent the suction is fine and strong. So... I replaced the hepa filter thinking that might be the problem. That didnt' work. The motor runs fine. The suction without the dirt cup inserted is strong. As soon as you insert

We own a dirt devil model 088600, and are experiencing a problem with the belt wearing away a section between where the belt connects to the brushes and the motor. There is a lot of plastic/rubber residue coming out from the vacuum. We have tried new belts only to find the same problem occurs. I noticed that the source of the dust is coming from the section between the brushes and motor, where there appears to be a section that is misshapen and melted. I looked up the schematic online and can't

How to disassemble the brush to empty anything that might be stuck inside of the brush? The motor seems to be overheating, all belts have been checked, all airways are clear and the filter is clean. The vacuum is vibrating and releasing a burning smell, but still sucking up dirt. There is nothing stuck on the outside of the brush, but is there a way to check inside of it to see if that is where a clog is occuring?


If there's a burning smell and the belts are fine, the problem is going to be hot wires causing the insulation to melt, or the motor going bad. Discontinue use and have it checked at a repair shop. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

I fear the motor has failed on my Electrolux Oxygen EL6988D. Just six months after the warranty expired, I was vacuuming when it suddenly stopped. There was no blockage in the tube and it wasn't working hard or long . . . it just stopped. I looked around the Internet and it appeared that many similar Electrolux units have a fuse. I hoped my problem might just be a blown fuse, so I took the machine apart. There are two small printed circuit boards, but no fuse. There is an in-line


Hi,\015\012\015\012I don't think you need a new motor, but please stop testing the machine with live power. It's dangerous and unnecessary.

I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren't turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned. But, You can tell there may not be a motor turning, because the roomba is more quiet than normal when you turn it on. Also, the hair just collects along the bottom of the brush and doesn't get pushed into the bin.

Our dog urinated on the machine. We cleaned both filters & plastic areas. Some might have gotten into the motor housing since it still smells terribly when turned on. Please advise


Place a Febreze sheet in the canister/dirt bin where the dirt collects. Let it spin around in there whilst you're using the machine. The fragrance will be spread throughout the vacuum cleaner. If that still doesn't work, you can always replace your f ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

The roller turns strong and the belt is new,but the dirt accu-mulates and doesnt get sucked up! there no observable clogs and the filter side vent blows strong.......ive removed beater,belt and am assuming there may be a problem inside the motor housing as all else appears normal..i was an aviation mech in the military and the above is my assessment........


Are you sure you have the belt on correctly?\015\012If it is not, the beater brush will push the dirt, etc, in front of itself and not back to the suction port. ... Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

My beater bar is struggling to turn. actually, it appears as though it is the motor that is struggling, as it slows down when going against the pile and the motor labours so much that it frequently fails to turn the bar until i lift it up again. the belt appears ok, and it is clean of hair etc. it is a 5 year old beam central vac. thanks, D

Oreck model BB870-AS - I was vaccuming when the vac shut off. The motor just spooled down and nothing more since. I have opened the case. Have power at the switch, and to the motor, but can't get a voltage reading to the common lead at the motor. Is there a fusible link, or something similar in that lead that might have burned out?

My bissell powersteamer model 1695 does not spray enough water out. Hardly anything will come out of the handheld attachment either, just a few drips. With the floor unit, it appears the only water coming out is a result of gravity when the control is squeezed. Nothing appears to be plugged up with debrie or deposits. There does not appear to be any kind of drive belt for the pump as it seems to operate off the main vacuum motor. Any ideas?

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

Have a Rainbow SE passed down from my Mom who bought it used.Never any trouble, haven't used it for couple of months. When I turn it on now , the motor hums, but doesn't suction. Was afraid to keep it running as I didn't know if the motor was locked or what. Can you advise if there is any home repair I might attempt?


I believe the motor on this unit has brushes. These are little conductive pieces that provide electricity to the spinning motor windings. They wear out over time and need replacing. I have found a link online that will show you how to ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

My Bissell bagless vacuum does not seem to work anymore. It will start to with a suction and then instead of picking up the dirt, it appears to blow the dirt out almost in a cloud of dust and debris from the front.
