Just had my dc24 for 6 weeks - decided to wash filters - do the filters stay in their plastic covers? They were a bit dirty but no visible dirt came out when i washed them 9in their plastic casings). Surely they will take ages to dry.

Vacuum has new bag but won't pick up dirt. Cleaned flat filter and it made it worse. Do I need to replace rectangular filter or can I clean it. If so , how? If not, do I need to take it in for repair, ir should I get new parts? Thanks!
It's clogged somewhere. Disconnect the hoses where you can and check for obstructions. Run a coat hanger down the hose if you need to to clear the obstruction. ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums
My Oreck is 10+ years old. The bag will not remain on the opening of the handle inside the bag. Dust goes into the cover rather than in the bag getting in the zipper which makes it very difficult to unzip the cover. Any suggestions?

I cannot keep the bag attached to the handle inside the cover on my Oreck XL Vaccuum. When it comes off dust blows out into the cover instead of the bag which makes it very hard to unzip the cover.
There should be a spring ring that slides up over the bag on the handle if thats missing try and use a couple of heavy duty rubber bands. however i do suggest you order the correct part. ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?
Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more ... Vacuums
I have a new bag in, checked the hoses for clogs have the motor cover off showing motor runs. Problem is vacuum has no suction in hose area, cover off where bag is and the air blows out of filter. hoses are clean no blockage.
Have you checked the filter? Many vacuums have a filter under or behind the bag to keep dust and dirt out of the motor. If this gets clogged the motor can't get any suction. Also look for holes in the hose or in the small segment between hose and bag ... Vacuums

Found the clog and cleaned it out. Heres the problem...now the power nozzle light comes on and the vacuum "on" is lite up red, but it will not come on. Checked the filters and the bag.

I have a Sears Upright vacuum cleaner, model 116.35922500. The vacuum wasn't picking up. I discovered a clog in the nozzle hose. I attempted to remove the cover of the brush unit to clear the clog. I was unable to remove the cover completely, but was able to clear the clog. My problem now is that I cannot replace the cover correctly. Is there a way to remove this cover? Thanks, Elizabeth

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

Bissell Powerf DJ68-00161C Upright Bag Vacuum will not power on. I did rinse out the bag compartment but it should be dry now. I use the Style 7 bag & belt. This is the first time it will not power on.
Hmm, you really should not ever rinse out your vacuum unless you have a model that specifically states it is called for. If you must, then use only a slightly damp sponge or cloth. There are so many ways water can have ruined your motor. Let the whol ... Bissell 3522 PowerForce Bagged Upright Vacuum
