I just got done fixing a unit with this problem. After a bit of time, dirt will build up in the lower unit and clog the vacumm tube. Symptoms: No air flow coming out of the vacuum. Motor is hot. Stuff is spitting out of the front Motor wouldnt start it had over heated. You should remover the roller and clear the clog by hand. Let the motor cool down and it should start once it had cooled down.

Sounds like either the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll is clogged.

I assume you mean the vacuum motor isn't running, could be the switch, cord or the motor, If you are able, I would start with the switch.

SOURCE: it turns on but the spinner underneath wont work now

Turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up..
Take out the scews in the plate that surounds the brush and take it off..
The belt should be firmly on the brush and the motor..
If the belt has come off the motor - pull out the side of the brush that the belt connects to.. Put the belt back on the motor post and the brush.. It might be a tad tough going back in because the belt should have a little tension..
Once the belt is on and brush in place - put plate back on..

Hope this helps ;o)

SOURCE: Isn't picking up lint. Will pick up other things

Is the brush turning on the bottom of the machine ? If not It could be cloged
up with stuff or the belt could be worn on it and it will turn but as soon as it contacts the floor it will stop turning. The belt is easy to replace by removing screws on the bottom of machine and a plate will come off . The belt can be pulled off and a new one installed by stretching it over the shaft on the motor and one on the brush assembly some may have a cogged wheel. JUST MAKE SURE IT IS UNPLUGED BEFORE DOING THIS

Dirt devil turbo clean sd40060 Cyclonic vacuum. Was given it as a present. Floor tool won't spin. Checked everything! Belt, for hair through out. All ok. Why isn't it working?


You should find a large button or flap on the floor tool. This is usually spring loaded and needs to be OUT. This should then let air in to drive the turbine which drives the spinner.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

When i vacuum the dirt and particles are not going into the windtunnel container-appears to be cleaning floor but isnt making it into the container.filters are checked and cleaned.less than 6 months old


If there is no obvious clog in the unit, you might want to check the beater brush and the drive belt. Be sure the belt is not broken and be sure the beater brush is free enough to rotate. If there is a broken belt it will be obvious.
I suggest you remove the beater brush and clean it as best you can, add some WD40 at each end by the brush holders and reassemble.
I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating on this if you find my solution to be beneficial.

Vacuum cleaner not picking up and sometimes spits ouit dirt


Check to see if bag (or if not bag then chamber is full).

Check to see if filter is clean.

If your vacuum has a bag, check to see that it is properly mounted.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific but it would help if you would specify what type of vacuum you have, whether you are using the hose or just the floor part, and where it is spitting the dirt from.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know the answer to the above questions and we'll go from there. Good luck!

Hello,

If the vacuum sounds like it usually does and still doesn’t pick up, you probably need to replace the belt. To check this, turn the vacuum on and lay it down sideways. Check to see if the roller is spinning. If it's spinning, turn the vacuum off. Stand it up and turn it back on. Do you hear the roller spinning. Some belts stretch over time. If the roller was spinning when the vacuum was on it’s side and stops when the roller has some pressure on it (your carpet), change the belt.
A clogged vacuum cleaner usually sounds "clogged". The noise the vacuum normally makes will seem muffled. First, Unplug Your Vacuum. Then change the vacuum bag or empty the dirt cup. If the bag is filled up more than halfway, this could reduce your suction. Throw out the bag. Look at the area that holds the dirt cup or vacuum bag. Remove any debris. Look for a filter in this area. If you find a filter make sure it's relatively clean. A clogged filter will shorten the life span of your vacuum. Make sure your filter is back in place or replaced, and reinstall the vacuum bag or dirt cup.
A lot of the current style upright vacuum cleaners have attachments and a hose on board. If you have a vacuum hose on your upright, pull it out like your going to vacuum with it. Look at the area you removed the hose from. Remove any debris. I recommend wearing gloves, and try not to use any sharp tools like a needle nose pliers that might puncture your vacuum hose.
For the final step in this vacuum cleaner repair, place the vacuum in a position where you have a birds eye view of the bottom plate. You can usually see if there is any debris that requires removal.
Here is a link that will take you to a site that shows how to access your machine to change belt or look for clogs.

The dirt is staying in the hose when I vacuum, not


that means there is no air flow thru your machine .. thats often caused by clogged (other) filters ..or sometimes a clogged hose .. you can check to make sure you can poke something thru the hose .. a stick or handle, hose or wire (making sure you dont poke thru the side of the hose) .. there are other filters and passageways in the unit that require cleaning or replacement .. if they get clogged then you will have your simptoms .. since there is lilttle air flow then the motor may overheat .. so dont run it long in that condition .. take all the "dirt cup" parts out and wash them all ...

It is blowing dust out of the motor


If this is a bagless machine, then the problem is that the really fine dust that you are picking up from your floor is so small that it is going through the filter and dust cup and building up in your vacuum motor. When enough build up collects, then it starts to blow it out the exhaust. I would bet a paper bagged machine for the long run. They are cleaner,

Dirt gets caught up in filter instead of in removable container


That is the problem with the bagless cleaners. The dirt goes through the cup, directly to the filter. There is nothing to keep them seperate. You can try putting a single layer of paper towel against the filter. It will provide a breathable barrier for the dirt but, it will clog too.
