My 2001 miele stopped working Black cannister. I believe cleaning ladies overheated it as the bag was very full and the vac felt warm to touch. I replaced bag and let cool down but it will not start. This has happened before and the vac store said they replaced the cord because it tends to go when it over heats. I have not taken in for and estimate but I fugure it will be at least $150 to repair. Is the another option.

I had a real heck of a time with the bag installation, because after the pop i zipped it up and started to use it and then the bag of the vac, not the replaceable bag fell off and i kept putting it back on but it kept falling off and when i looked inside the bag to reattach it to the vac cleaner i noticed that the dust was all inside. i haven't even used it that much as i keep it to do the upstairs bedroom only. i love that it is so lightweight and easy to use and i hope that someone can co

My electrolux vac shut off for a full bag. After replacing the bag the vac won't start and the bag full light stays on.What should I be looking for to resolve my problem?
If the suggestion that renevacdoc did not work, it is most likely that your valve assembly(full bag control) has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You will have to take your vac to the Aerus/Electrolux dealer/service store for repair. ... Electrolux UltraLux 2000 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have 2 Hoover Wind Tunnel-self propelled bagged vacuums-U6433-900 model.The roller bar does not agitate, the self propelled feature does not work and, in general, the vacuum is not performing well. I have replaced the roller bar, the v belt and the wide belt. The filters have been replaced and it has a new bag. I have had both of these since 2004 and they were fairly expensive $200 each) but if the repairs are prohibitive, I might as well get new vacuums. Suggestions? I just spent $100 for bel

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta
You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

My Electrolux guardian C135 vac has lost suction. replacing the bag does nothing. removing the HEPA filter has no effect - what do you suggest? Will a replacement HEPA filter make any significant difference?

The brush is not moving on the vaccume. I'm pretty sure that the belt is busted. I cannot see how to get the shroud off, so that I can get to the roller and belt. It all looks and feels like one piece, even when I start removing screws. It is a bag-less vac. The model number is - v1310rs. Thank you.

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. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

Hoover tempo upright is clogged. I can only vac for a few minutes, then I have to unplug it and turn it over and clean out the under part under the roller.

It is maybe a year old. How can I take it apart and unclog it?
