Having problems with your Rowenta Vacuums ?
Vacuum losing power
\015 My vacuum is only about 8 months old and has not seen any ''heavy'' action. When I switch on it will operate for 4-5 minutes on full power, then it drops to less than half power. I have looked at the filters and they appear reasonably clean. It does not smell or appear to be hot. After leaving to rest the power will return but the same happens again.\015\012Have you any suggestions?\015\012Thanks.\015
Sound like you may have a faulty circut breaker or thermal overload in the vacuum motor itself. If you got this vacuum from a specialty vacuum store you may be best to take it in under warranty. If you bought it from Wal mart, they will tell you that you have to go through the manufacture of the machine to get warranty work done... You might be best to take it in and have it checked.

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.
