Having problems with your Nilfisk Family Vac Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
Vacuum emitting strong odors when it's on.
\015 I loaned the Nilfisk Family vacuum to a friend who I think used it to vacuum up incense, now the vac smells like musty perfume every time it's turned on. I replaced the bag, washed the hose and did my best to clean the big filter with no luck. Can the big top filter be cleaned with soap and water?\015
Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. I am a nilfisk vacuum agent and although i havent actually worked on one exactly the same as yours there are no Nilfisk with any kind of washable filters at all. I think you will have to replace it. If you are in Australia i can check out the cost of replacement filters for you just drop me an email with the exact model number.
Hope this helps.
Happy Vacuuming :)

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor. My old Kenmore did the same thing but I used it anyway...because the power was great. We don't have feet problems or pets. The carpeting was new when we bought this vacuum.
Moisture/humidity mixed with organic dust (like sloughed skin cells) can cause the smell you describe in vacuums. I recommend that you purchase scented granules that are placed inside of the vacuum bag. Do not buy Carpet Fresh because the fine powd ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

Engine troubles I have a 1975 4x4 GMC full size van. The motor is a 350 cid small block on propane. The thing hadn't been running in 5 years and when I tuned it up I changed vacuum advance pod on HEI distributor and hooked to a better vacuum and now the hotter it gets the faster it idols and when I try and turn the timing back, it starts hard. Wondering if vacuum is too strong or what is up?
I haven't fixed it yet but I think I might have a solution for it. From the factory this thing had a 4 barrel carb and they put an equivalent size atomizer in it for the propane and over the years someone omitted the EGR system in it and propane is a ... Vacuums
My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene
The carpet cleaning portion of the vacuum sucks debris up poorly, and during the whole time I have it on carpet, the hose continues to have strong suction. The vacuum also spits out what its vacuumed up.
The screws along the base of the vacuum must be removed . The vacuum cleaner cover must then be removed exposing the suctioning hose syphoning the debris from brush roll area. Pull the hose from the brush roll area letting it hang freely. Remov ... Vacuums

The vacuum does not **** in dirt. It is blowing air instead. Yet when I disconnect the vacuum from the cannister, the suction seems very strong. I took it to a vacuum repairman, and he said that Kenmore sucks and I might as well get rid of it. (He wanted to sell me another one) It is 10 years old, but if I can fix it I would like to try.
