My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

I just bought the LG200R vacuum. It is working wonderfully but i have only had it a week. I have already had to clean the agitator but this is due to my extremely long hair and apparently i shed a lot. I was wondering if i should be alarmed by the funny smell it leaves in the air. Its not like a burning rubber smell but more like a fresh plastic smell or sorta chemical like smell (hard to describe) and it doesn't need to be on to make this smell it seems to be permeating off the vacuum itself

I have a Fantom 500 DX and it seems that it doesn't pick up anything anymore. It looks like machine is working well, but it doen't pick up.

I changed the belt about 6 months ago, but all other parts are original.

Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward. Any thoughts, any fix it ideas? Thank you.
The vacuum does not pick up lint or small items like string. It does not seem to have enough suction to pick it up.

Bad smell after using my windtunnel for a couple of minutes i noticed an odd smell. i turned it over and checked, the belts are fine but i cleaned out the hair anyway. after doing that the self propel seems to struggle and it is hard to push. when i look through the window on the top i can see the brush spinning freely but then when i push it, it slows down dramatically and then picks up again. the suction is fine. what do you recommend?
It may be the roller bearings? ... Hoover U5450-900 Windtunnel Supreme Bagged Upright Vacuum
My A 2045 Karcher vacuum's suction is really weak and the motor seems to be working VERY hard. The motor sounds like it used to when the vacuum fell over and went into overdrive! Now it's in overdrive all the time and the suction is minimal. Nothing is blocked and the filter is clean and dry. What do I need to do?

Hoover Savvy The red light for the dirt finder is on when pushing forward and the green light is on when pulling it back. This happens all the time. It's like the dirt finder sensor isn't working right. It seems to be picking up good and we keep the filter clean.

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
When running the 2100 Electrolux vacuum, it is stopping and starting when pulling or pushing the floor attachment. Seems like the connection at the top of the handle is a little loose or the electric tabs are loose where the hose connects. Any ideas?
Other option is that on the hose end of the electrical connection, you can use an awl on the electrical connections to bend them in slightly so they make good contact when they are automatically plugged in when you connect the wands.

Can't seem to pick up small items like lemon pips with Kirby G5. It just runs over them or pushes them backwards and forwards.
It sounds like your belt is broken, OR your beater bar is rotating but has not been adjusted downward to reach the carpet pile. Check by running the vacuum and looking to see if the beater is moving. ... Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way up. It hardly picks up anything at all now. I can't seem to find my instruction manual. What's the problem?
Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find ... Vacuums
I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

Good Morning, A friend recently gave me her Hoover windtunnel model U630-900 vacuum. It is a self propelled vac. It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush. I thought maybe a belt may be off or something, but I do not have a manual to know where to begin checking. Could you tell what to check and also if there is anywhere online to download the manua

I have a Eureka Altima vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick up very well. The suction seems fine but the brush roller doesn't seem to pick up from the top of the carpet. When you lower the height of the vacuum the belt rubs and smells horribly. How can I get the vacuum to pick up better?
That means that you need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need to replace and the manual which has instructions:Eureka Altima ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
My Dyson is getting stuck when I am trying to vacuum. I try to force it by pushing hard, but it is stuck. Weird.
The suction is good, but it can't pick up most of the stuff on the floor. The hand held hose works very well, but it doesn't even pick up little fuzzies reliably when I push it along. And, the suction is too hard I think because it used to push easily and now I have to push really hard, even on flat carpet.
Check entire length of hose, including the piece in the power head, for clogs. Simply drop a marble in one end and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't, then the hose is clogged somewhere. ... Dyson DCO7 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Hello,\015\012\015\012This sounds like it is most likely a belt issue with your Riccar. In order to verify this, turn the vacuum on and turn it over on it's side after making sure that the carpet / floor switch on the top of the roller ... Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum
Not efficiently picking up anything, suction seems to be low
In my experience, you have a clog somewhere between the floor and the bag or what ever catches the dirt. Push something through all hoses. Look at all filters. Try running the machine (outside) while it is open to check the vaccum power. ... Panasonic MC-V7398 Upright Vacuum
