It only makes a grinding noise when you pull handle back and engade to vacuum flor and stops when you put it upright.

Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct....? Right? No, not true, because when I turn it on and try to and vacuum (by lower canister with foot release) it makes that terrible ratching sound). Please help
The loud ratching is a warning to tell you that there is something stopping the roller bar from rotating this is a very common thing lay the machine on the floor front side down take off the bottom plate and just check the belt is in the centre of th ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Thanks! Awesome tip to get into the gear box. My roomba would start up but would move very sluggishly. Looked up the beep code and it was the brushes. Brushes are cleaned regularly so it was something internal. Did your solution of getting into & cleaning the gear box and viola! He's back!

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

My Kenmore 35922 works well on floors, but it recently became very difficult to push on carpet. The brush spins and a local vacuum repair guy wouldn't solve my problem since the vacuum worked fine on his very flat, commercial carpet. What can I do to get my easy to push vacuum back?
Hi dalee196,There are three common reasons why vacuum cleaners are getting hard to push.1. Base is dirty - The base needs to be clean from dirt and tar.2. Height is too low - You might want to consider adjusting th ... Vacuums
Clogged hose A makeup brush (about 3.5 inches long) was sucked up through the vacuum hose. It won't come back through the same way it came in because the bristles in the brush are expanded. We can see the brush on the side of the hose that connects to the canister but can't get it around the bend of the 360 part of the hose... is there any way to take the hose apart more?

Broken vacuum jammed the rotating brush on a kenmore powermate vacuum cant get it to run properly after clearing the jam
Question; you can't run it properly meaning? The agitator (brush) isn't spinning? If that's the case, then Kazong is right, check the belt. If the belt is fine, check to make sure you didn't damage the bearing of the agitator.\015\012\015 ... Kenmore 23613 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

I cut all of the hair out of the bottom of the spin-brush on the Dyson Upright Animal Vacuum. Now I dont think I can get the brush back in there correctly. If I squeeze it in there (which it is a VERY tight fit...) then it wont spin. Any thoughts?

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No
Hi\015\012The Miele uprights (S170 and upwards) with the Powerhouse title are ALL Panasonic uprights which have been at one time sold in the UK. Therefore the upright may use TWO drive belts which need to be looked at: Take off the sole plate a ... Vacuums
My dc17 squeals when the brushes are rotating. I have replaced the brushes twice and the belt three times. It has been back to the factory twice and they say they have done the same thing. The suction is still there but it is getting to the point I might have to wear ear plugs to vacuum any suggestions.

Tried to take roller brush out to clean it's housing, cant get one side back in without trying to force it.
The roller brush fits snug in the housing, however, if you had it out, check to make sure the end caps of the brush shaft are pushed all the way on. These just slide on the roller bar shaft and if something got under them, they would not be able to ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I
