I recently purchased this vacuum after reading consumer reports article on it and from recommendations from family. However, since I've had this vacuum it's been nothing but problems! I have a frieze carpet and I have the vacuum set on the highest setting. Each time I use it, the vacuum clogs with carpet fibers before I even finish a room! Any suggestions?

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?

I cannot find the directions for my Utilitech 1-outlet timer. It has two numbers on the back: #148297 and #TMO1DHBL. I thought that I could just put the time now arrow on the present time and pull up the sections when I wanted the timer on; the only problem is, it lights up whenever it is plugged into the outlet. I just need the directions for setting the timing. Thank you very much Lilla

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

Good evening, I have a Xio Z1010 electrolux vaacum cleaner and I hope you'll be able to give me some advice. The vacuum cannot be started. Last time it started for a few seconds and stopped suddenly. Something similar happened long time ago but that was due to overheating. Once cooled down in few hours it would start again. It is not the case now after 24 hours. Could you give me any idea what could be the reason? Your help would be much appreciated. Adorian

Our Proteam ProForce 1500 is 1 year old. The vacuum works (****) in the hardwood floor setting on the switch. The beater works on the other setting but it won't **** and beat at the same time. What is wrong and is it something I can fix?
It may be something to do with the actual switch on this unit. \012\012I have a feeling it may have to do with the wiring on the switch itself, perhaps one of the wires have come off or burned on the contact. \012\012Is it som ... Proteam ProForce 1500 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have owned my kirby sentria for 2.5 years and have had no problems until now. The vacuum still works but I cannot lower it all the way down or the light will turn off and it will start to smell like something is burning inside. I use it on the 2nd or 3rd setting with no problem. I have changed the belt and cleaned all the hair and strings that were on the roller but it still has this problem.

I have the Nutone 353 central vacuum. The last few times we have used it motor has shut down and then will come back up after an hour or so. Re-set switch does not seem to matter
This is typical of a motor going bad. As it heats up it shuts down all by itself, no sensors other than the mini breaker. The intervals will get shorter and maybe the minibreaker will pop. Your options are to replace the motor or the motor brushes if ... Broan-NuTone CV350 Performance Bagged Central System Vacuum
I have no power on a brand new Electrolux Oxygen canister vacuum. This is the second time. After the first time, I took it back to Sears where I bought the vacuum and they gave me a brand new vacuum. This is the second time it's happened, basically on both units after the time that i brought them home.
Ensure that the tools and the bucket are installed properly, if the bucket is not well in place, the unit wont start.If the electric power does not come on, disconnect from mainsand check plugs, cable and fuses where appropriate. ... Electrolux Vacuums
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.

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.
Repair shop has not fixed the problem? complain until they fix it properly. This is a pressure fault / jamming issue or slipping drive. Repair shop should have fixed it 1st time. ... Vacuums
