Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809.

It's been awhile since I have used my shampoo system on my Ultimate G series Kirby. Well, as instructed I took it apart and cleaned it. Now I can?t figure out where to put the ?screen cap? and ?sponge filter?. I have my manual in front of me and the only place it shows the filter and sponge (page 35 in the manual) is when it?s been taken apart to clean. It doesn?t show where to put it back. I don?t know what I would do without all the pictures in the Kirby manual. HELP! Thanx. Visual Kirby Vacuu

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.

Burning smell how do I get the bottom section apart to clean it out- burning smell when i have the spin brushes turned on. Any help would be appreciated cause I love this machine and hubby told me it couldn't be taken apart to be fixed. Thank you.

My dyson has two gears as it were! One for normal suction and the other for deeper cleaning. There used to be a real difference in the performance between the two options, also the noise changed when you swithched from one to the other. This no longer occurs. I have taken it apart according to your instruction, cleaned all the various bits but still no luck. The cat fur is still clearly visible despite my best efforts. Can you please help!!!!

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

It clicks as it is going and stops after about 30 seconds. Two beeps. I have tried cleaning brushes and have pretty much taken the whole thing apart, cleaned the motor, the brushes everything. Still doing to same thing, when this has worked before.
