Having problems with your Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum ?
When it goes onto the rug it says to clean I do and it runs a few minutes and says it again. It never quits on the linoleum
If the sensors become obstructed by dust or debris the infrared signal is weakened. Regularly inspect and clean the sensors and use compressed air for better results
On all vacumn cleaners their is a control for the suction required between carpets and lino ,this is normally a flap on the suction side to allow more air in to it doesnt stick and overload the motor ,have a look underneath the machine and see it has a similar device somewhere or look in the operating manual

Our miele red star(s314i) vacuum was running great and quit suddenly. It had not been running for a very long time and just quit. Newish bag, no clogs in hose and doesn't seem overly hot. the over heated warning light did not come on. I've waited 30 plus minutes to try to restart and no luck. Any ideas

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often.

Isn't picking up lint. Will pick up other things like flecks of paper but will not get any fuzz or fibrous material off any rug no matter what the setting. This is a recent problem. Have owned the vacuum for awhile and never seen this issue before. Is it an easy fix? I've cleaned the brush, cleaned out the filters, cleaned the dirt tank. Nothing changed.
Is the brush turning on the bottom of the machine ? If not It could be clogedup with stuff or the belt could be worn on it and it will turn but as soon as it contacts the floor it will stop turning. The belt is easy to replace by removing screw ... Bissell 3576 CleanView II Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have had my Bissell 6591-X for 2 years. I hate it! No matter what I do all the fuzz, hair, whatever fills up around the upper filter before it even starts to deposit in the cup. It has done this ever since I bought it. No matter how much I take it apart, clean it, clean filters, empty the cup, nothing does any good. I spill more dirt onto the vacuum and floor than ever gets in the cup. I will never buy another Bissell.

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean; the dust tank is empty; the belts have no cracks.

When I was putting my new rug shampooer together and the directions said to press the trigger and the clean surge button until I heard a snap, I did just that many times and never did hear a snap so I thought it had likely happened and I didn't hear it so I proceeded to fill the solution tank and get busy but no solution came out so I used the clean surge button instead and got the job done (I think).
