Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Hi, My Kirby Ultimate G upright has very little suction. The engine sounds fine when turned on and the bag is not full at all. Suggestions?

Answers :

In general, when the beater brushes on vacuum cleaners are not rotating, the debris on the carpet is not "bounced up" and into the suction area of the vacuum.\015\012With this in mind it might be a good idea to see if your beater brush or brushes are rotating freely. \015\012If they are not it could be due to the ends of the brushes being bound up where they meet the vacuum case or the belt(s) could be loose or broken.\015\012That would be the least expensive thing to start with.\015\012Please let me know if you have questions.

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?

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
