Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.


The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

DC07 hose has plenty of suction. Main hosuing has no suction. Beater bar turns fine and works so well creates positive air pressure blowing outward instead of vacuum. Any ideas?


Main housing has no suction becouse of bloakage in it. UPLUG the unit from mains, and remove the bottom (main housing)cover. Clean all you can access and put everything back together. In all the vacuum cleaners all the problems is caused usuall ... Vacuums

Not sucking i have a KIRBY G3 that was working great. One day there was a strong smell and the brush roller belt broke so I replaced it. The fan looks good. Now the vacuum does not **** up dirt but instead seems to very gently blow air forward. I took the (new) bag off and it is blowing hard int the bag. I am stumped!

I have a WRPL 25P Dehumidifier, Serial # NQ336USA2733, that I purchased at Canadian Tire, Corner Brook, NL, Canada on July 25, 2009. I recently noticed that the dehumidifier wasn't working. When I turn it on, it just blows cold air and does not absorb the moisture in the air. I am wondering if it is still under warranty. Please advise if the product is still under warranty and what steps I need to take to have it repaired or replaced. Thank you.

My Oreck XL upright is blowing out instead of sucking in. I changed the bag and cleaned the brushes; I also cleaned out the main "pipe." I looked for a place to change settings and couldn't find any, so I know I didn't inadvertently switch something. The brushes seem to be spinning at the correct speed. Thank you, Julia Byrem

The unit comes on and the exhaust blows out however no suction at all. l placed a wet vac on the unit where the bag goes and all of the outlets pull some air. The unit is the cv350. Thanks.

Won't work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won't turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.
