I'd check the hoses again and see if there are rips or leaks. If it has a seperate motor for the suction, I'd make sure that it works.

There is an area on the back of the tank where you will see lines, put your thumb there and pull the top half of the tank towards yourself. That should open the machine so you can replace your after filter.

SOURCE: Losing power to stick/floor vacuum

if you have an extension wand, the replacement will cost about $100.00. there is a way to repair both the pwr-cord on the brush assemble and the wand, but it depends on how much damage there is. also you need to check the contacts where the wand connects with the handle,and the prongs on the handle.

let me know if you still need help

SOURCE: Brush will not turn and lights will not light

If its not the belt or agitator it could be that the motor burnt out (this is what might be wrong with mine because everything else seams to be fine when checked with a multimeter). The upper switch assy. is part #48663238 $27.49 @ searspartsdirect.com the lower switch in the foot assy. area (by belt) is part #91001026 $6.49. Sears also gives parts list with schematics.

I cleaned the filter and emptied out the canister from the bottom and now the dirt comes out on my filter and not in the canister?


The first place the "dirty" air enters is the top chamber of the canister where it traps the bigger stuff.

The canister has two clean-out doors so make sure you open them both (top and bottom) or you could have problems.

Nice thing about the Shark as it has a number of clean-out points starting at the base of the hose where it enters the bottom of the vac. to the beater brush (on the bottom of just behind the brush assembly). Good luck!

Shuts off after a minute or so and comes back on and shuts down in 20 seconds


Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

Problems with Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum? the cat hair seems to plug up the filter instead of goint to the canister


You may be using the wand/hose without an attachment on it. The attachments on my dyson always allow some air to flow to by, it may be the same on the Eureka. If air flow is completely stopped the cyclone will shut down and then the hair/dust/whatever will flow to the filter. So don't let the air flow be completely shut off during use.

Clogged filter


I found that the rubber seal on the bottom of my cyclone is not properly seated to the bottom of canister, I guessed when I removed the clear canister bin completely from cyclone unit for cleaning, I put the cyclone down on the floor and rubber seal accidentally move upward just a little. this creates a small gap on the bottom when I reassembled it, (since seal is up from it original position a little). I pulled rubber seal down to its original position, you will notice that there should not be a gap on the bottom at all, this way you do not have to clean or should not have to clean the filter but once a month or even less.

The dirt is going into the filter


As the air gets sucked through the vacuum cleaner, the dirt is basically thrown out into the container by the spinning air. If the speed that the air is travelling through gets too low, this stops happening and instead it gets sucked through into the filters.

There could be a number of reasons that the air flow has slowed. The most likely is the filters have become blocked over time. Even with regular washing, after 5 years they will not be as efficient as when they were new. I would suggest replacing them (the foam filter and HEPA filter if you have one.)

I would also check that there are no blockages in the main hose, and also give all the component a good banging/brushing to make sure they are nice and clean.

hope this helps,

Matt

Hoover wind tunnel


A clog or partial clog is what causes the motor to overheat, then a thermo protector will cut off and the motor will stop until it cools down. So either you do have a clog, in the hose or down by the brush roll. If they are clear, and the filters are clean, then maybe the thermo protector is bad and needs to be replaced.

Hep! My 3 month old Hoover Mach 5 doesn't pick up!


What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own


I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
