Having problems with your Westinghouse Vacuums ?
Vacuum Cleaner never worked
\015 I have the Westinghouse Unplugged vacuum cleaner. Conditioned the batteries (2 of them) but the machine won't turn on. After calling Westinghouse and getting a new charger it still has the same problem. I got this as a reconditioned machine but have not been able to use it. I cannot send it back since because of the size of the machine (you cannot remove the handle once it is attached) the cost to ship it would be more than the deeply discounted price I paid. Same would be true to ship it to Westinghouse for repair. I am about to give this to Goodwill...and just be out the $50 discounted price I paid for it.\015
These cordless units are no more than a broom. toss it out and go buy a real vacuum with a cord. FYI cheap vacuums are cheap vacuums. if you want something to last a do a great job you have to put out a little more money for it.

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank
You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?
Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it. ... Vacuums
My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space that's normally used for blowing air OUT....the outlet with the retractable cover located close to the part where the power cable comes out of and retracts into. I've checked the filter and the hose and they are not clogged...I have also put in a new bag. Not keen to buy another vacuum cleaner u

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

I have a Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner and slowly the spinning portion of the vacuum ceased to work. We checked for hair, etc. that might be caught but it is all clean. We also checked the filter within the ball portion of the vacuum. Any suggestions would be great!
Hi Antonia. I assume the spinning part is the brush roller. If so, you have a broken or stretched belt. I am not too familiar with the Dyson. I would be interested to know your progress so I can learn also. Thanks Chris ... Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum
My hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner's motor spindle keeps overheating. Because of the high temperature, it keeps burning through belts (the big, wide ones).

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on.

Hi I’ve got a Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC E468 1600W a few years old now but works well up to recent problem. Not picking up I checked the obvious things and found excessive air being sucked in around the hose housing at the back of the vacuum (as it enters the waste bag) On inspection it appears to me as if there should be some sort of gasket that may have perished and been sucked in, however I can’t identify any such part. Any thoughts on what the problem/solution may be will be appreciate
The hose on the back might be loose - check to see that the hose is not obstructing anything where it screws in at the back - or indeed the screws may be loose themselves; some of the MCE 468 models had an additional ring washer that sits between the ... Panasonic Vacuums
