Remove hose take it outside and flush with TSP solution then rinse with water (garden hose) let dry. spackle dust and drywall dust are water soluble and will not hurt your grass.

I am vacuuming spackle dust from sanding walls and my electrolux canister continues to open. What should I do?


Fine dust from sparkle will clog a bag or filter very quickly even though the bag is not full or even close to full. The air can't pass through the bag so it is popping the door open. Drywall dust can ruin a vacuum motor very quickly. I use a shop vac style vacuum with a cartridge filter that still clogged up after just a few minutes of vacuuming the dust but I can take the filter outside and hit it against something and use a small soft brush to clean it.

THe cyclone part is full of smelly fine dust


You have to take the filter out and clean it White Vinegar usually gets rid of bad household smells If it's a H filter you need to replace those every couple of months

I have a shark navigator vacuum that is making a loud noise and sounds like air is blowing out a hole on the side


I found the issue, the square hole in the side is an emergency air release if the suction is not reaching the dust collector. The cylinder filter screen inside the the top of the dust collector had a thick layer of dust which wasn't allowing airflow to the dust collector, hence the air was escaping through the square hole on the side. I cleaned the screen and it worked as if it came right out of the box.

Suction is low, but bucket is not full and filter is relatively clean


The filter may be relatively clean, but if there's a lot of fined dust in your area the pores of the filter will fill and clog fairly quickly. Try replacing the filter and see what happens. If you don't have a spare, consider purchasing one for use while the other is drying out. Then alternate.
A leaky hose could also cause a loss of suction, as could a broke or cracked flex tube (the short piece in the power head).

Kenmore 25614/25615 Progressive bagged canister vac won't start


sounds like there was a loose connection or loose wire that came in contact with another wire. check your cord for small burn holes, also could have shorted out in the hose or the wand. If you are comfortable to disassemble the vacuum i can walk you through the troubleshooting process so we can find out what actually went bad. id start with the cord though. let me know if you have any questions or need more assistance

My Kenmore Progressive is making a noise that sounds as if something is blocking the suction. I have checked the tubes and can't find any obvious blockages


Have you changed out the bag? Checked the air filters? When you run it and hold your hand over the hose opening, do you feel suction?
Check the head for blockages, you said the tubes are good, so check the hose, if no obstructions there, open the canister and check the bag, if it's full change it, if not, pull it out and check the filter that's under the bag, if it's not clogged re-run the above steps but this time look for possible vacuum leaks. Let me know if this helps.

Filter seems clogged.


Its fully blocked, needs stripping down and cleaning.
Start with the brush roller compartment, clean in their and take the bucket off and clean all filters Get your contractor back and tell him to get it serviced.
The motor housing will need cleaning as well.

Kenmore progressive canister bad connection from hose to canister


It could be, the female part of the connector is stretched open. You can usually insert something, like a dart, between the sleeve and the holder, to tighten it. If you paid with Pay Pal, see about getting your money back.
