I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I have a model B1500 vacuum. The vacuum would lug and stop and start if I lifted it off the rug. I changed the belt to the beater bar. That didn't help. I also noticed that the connection between the hose and wand heats up. How can I fix it?
I'm not exactly sure what make of vacuum this is -- a number of companies make a model b1500, so this may be a bit general. If the vacuum has an adjustment for the height of the carpet pile and you have it set too low, it will overload the brush and ... Vacuums
I have a Infinity Vacuum Cleaner. Shark Model NV32. I took the wand out to vacuum a spot and now I can't put wand back in. I keep pressing the wand release button when putting the wand in but no good
Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?
There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt. ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum
My vacuum is a Kenmore Special Edition with a Power-Mate 12.0 AMPS wand. I ran over the edge of fringed edge of my living room carpet and immediately turned off the vacuum. Although I have removed the fringe pieces from the wand head and I have pushed the overload protector reset button on the wand, the wand brush will not turn.

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.

I accidently ran over a sock while vacuuming underneath my bed and the belt broke (brush does not rotate now). I've always changed the belts in my vacuum cleaners, but the Healthy Home manual states that I need to bring it into a shop so that a professional repairman can change it. I find this ridiculous and now wish that I never bought it. How do I change the belt myself? PS I have already bought a replacement belt.

I have a Filter Queen Majestic canister vacuum cleaner. At the end of the wand, a button to release the attachement not only broke, but also one eyehole on the wand where one nipple on the button falls into. So therefore a new button isn't going to fix the wand because there isn't a hole on one side of the area where the button falls in place for a nipple to secure the button in place.

Engine troubles I have a 1975 4x4 GMC full size van. The motor is a 350 cid small block on propane. The thing hadn't been running in 5 years and when I tuned it up I changed vacuum advance pod on HEI distributor and hooked to a better vacuum and now the hotter it gets the faster it idols and when I try and turn the timing back, it starts hard. Wondering if vacuum is too strong or what is up?
I haven't fixed it yet but I think I might have a solution for it. From the factory this thing had a 4 barrel carb and they put an equivalent size atomizer in it for the propane and over the years someone omitted the EGR system in it and propane is a ... Vacuums
The wand will not stand up on its own when attached to the vacuum head. I had earlier models which did not have the adjustable height and this was not a problem--I simply turned the wand to the side. But I cannot do it on with this wand. Any solutions?
