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

Now when the vacuum is turned on, the motor sounds weak, and then turns off in a matter of seconds,and we have to reset the breaker on the vacuum to get it to start again for another few seconds.
This sounds indicative of a worn set of carbon brushes on a dieing motor for a central vac. the armature is ,likely damaged causing teh breaker to blow. Please post back with more details as to make and model. Do not atempt to run the vac ... Vacuums

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should.
