I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!

The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9. How do I find a replacement for the other belt, the one which directly drives the beater bars? By the way, this vacuum has great suction, but otherwise is far inferior to my previous Panasonic vacuums. The cheaper models aren't a good buy--stick with the more expensive models.

Kenmoore Intellivac w direct drive suddenly started making internal sound like something was stuck. Hose is clear, and sound is made when hose is detached from main unit. Vacuum sounds find at lower pressure, only makes sound with bag door closed and/or placing my hand over the end of hose.

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely


The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums
