On some carpets, we can't get the correct height adjustment. It's either too low, so the beaters stall and don't spin, or so high that it fails to pick up animal hair.
I'm not sure if something is malfunctioning or if I need to have a better understanding of how to adjust

No spin Vacuum's brush does not spin on (low) carpet unless switched to "high" but then roller does not pick up hair on carpet. Belts are in good condition. Maybe belts are loose?

I have the Bissell Proheat (7901) It will pick up water and the hand tool works fine. I noticed that the red indicator stopped spinning. Then I noticed no water was coming out. If I put down water using the hand tool, the vacunme will pick it up. When I called Bissell they had me do something with the indicator. When it didn't work they said take it in for repair.

The roller on my power head does not spin consistently. So my vac is not picking up of course. The square end pieces and the rod that goes into the wooden roller seem loose. I tried tightening it but it still is not turning. Can I do a fix with glue or something till I can get a new roller?

I have a TA Adler-Royal 1123 PD nova printing calculator. (It is very old.) The numbers printed on the tape are very faint. Do I need a new ribbon or something else? Is there such a thing as an ink roller for this model? I am not sure I picked the correct category of expert. You do not have one for office machines or calculators.

Canister powerhead brush does not seem to spin when the carpet level adjustment is on any level other than "high". Could it be something as simple as needing a new belt and is there a difference in a regular belt as opposed to "whisper belt"?
The belt is worn/stretched to the point that it cannot take the load on low level setting due to more resistance against the carpet and there is also no signifagant difference between the two belts except for expecting a longer belt life from the whi ...

Dyson animal dc14 - beater spins but vacuum not working - not clogged - is there a reset or is it something else?

I have a cannister (Animal something...) Today, it didn't sound right - like a blockage. I took out the filter - seemed OK; I looked for a blockage - found none. I continued to vacuum, but it wasn't picking up. Then, I stopped again, and I found a blockage (cat toy mouse) right at the end of the hose (attachment end.) I cleared, and I turned back on - nothing. Completely dead. It is one year old, just about exactly. Desperate, Sharon Tracy
Hello,if your canister is completely dead, then it means its having a power problem. You need to focus your attention on that part of your canister that relates to power. Such as; power wire, if you don see any fault with the power cord, ... Dyson Vacuums
Automatic pump I understand the concept. What is wierd is the place to hook up the waterhose is up high and on the outside of the Shopvac itself. Is there another spot to actually hook up the hose inside the shopvac? I can't locate my manual. I do see a hole in the bottom of the filter but there is not an actual place to screw something in there? Im I just being stupid?
Well that does sound strange but in theory if you hook up the water hose even up high when the water fills the reservoir it should run out while your vacuuming give it a shot and when you wet vac yo ... Shop Vac 584-06-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely
The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums

The hose on my vaccuum is not picking up. I am pretty sure something is blocking the hose up but not all the way. Is there a way that it detaches from the vaccum and if there is what next?

I have a dyson animal dc24. It is 7 months old and has stopped working. The hand tool is working fine but when I insert it to engage in normal vaccuming the suction stops.

I have a Eureka 5902AVZ and the brushroll does not work. when i remove the belt, which is not torn nor worn out, the motor spins perfectly fine. Though when i put the brushroll back into place, it shows that the motor is trying to spin, but with resistance. it seems the brushroll will not spin if locked into place, because there is no attachment on the left side of the brushroll that will allow it to spin freely with the belt. am I missing some parts or is there something else wrong?

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

My hoover windtunnel is not picking anything up all of a sudden. Also the roller underneith is not spinning. I've replaced filters and the attachment part is working fine, just when it's in the upright position it won't pick anything up. It also doesn't seem to be self propelled anylonger either. It use to **** everything up, including the dog. Please help!
The belt that drives the brush roll has broken. That's why it doesn't pick up and why it doesn't pull itself forwards. Check the User Manual (download from Hoover website if necessary) for information on replacing the belt. Good luck! ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
