Re: dust blowing out of my vaccuum cleaner

Usually when dust is blowing out it is caused by a clog, either the hose, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Check them and clean them out and you should be ok.

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

How to Prolong the life of your Vacuum leaner

There are several types of vacuum cleaners these days. Most people now seem to use the upright bagless vacuums since you do not have to buy the filter bags. Those vacuums are fine, if you take the proper care of them. Ithink it is a bit messy. In order for you to really prolong the life of any vaccuum, you must make sure the machine has plenty of circulation. In order for the vaccuum do the great job you expect, you have to do a little maintenance on it.
  • Each time you run the vaccuum,
  • Take out all filters (foam & the plastic inserts)
  • Wash the filters out with warm water.

I cannot keep the bag attached to the handle inside the cover on my Oreck XL Vaccuum. When it comes off dust blows out into the cover instead of the bag which makes it very hard to unzip the cover.

there should be a spring ring that slides up over the bag on the handle if thats missing try and use a couple of heavy duty rubber bands. however i do suggest you order the correct part.

After using for a while it gets hot and cuts out. So far it has done this twice and re-started after cooling down.

The cutting out is, in a way, a good thing. Most vaccuum cleaners have a thremal cutout, so if the cleaner overheats it cuts out until a safe temperature is reached to save the motor from damage.

The question here is why is the motor overheating. There are only 2 possibilities:

1: The motor its self is failing and windings in the motor are burning out, causing the overheat. If this is happening, then the overheat will probably be accompanied by much louder noise from the motor that you are used to and possibly the smell of burning emectrical equipment. If this is happening then you should stop using the cleaner right away. Generally the cost of a replacement motor (Unless the appliance is under warranty of course) is more than the residual value of the vaccuum cleaner.

2: The motor is overheating because it is being overstrained. Possible causes for this are:
Dust filters on the machine are clogged (Bagless machines typically have at least 2 filters, one on the exit airflow from the motor and another somewhere around the top of the cylinder. In a Dyson for instance, there is a foam filter in a clip open housing directly above the dust container.

Clean, wash or replace the filters as per the manufacturer's instructions.
If it has a bag, then the pores of the bag may be blocked - swap out the bag.
If it is an upright with a brush, ensure that the brush is turning freely
Ensure that all pipes are free from obstructions, pay particular attention on upright cleaners, to the pipe that leads from the beater brush housing to the waste dust collection

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,

How do I detach the cloth bag from my Kirby G3 Vaccuum to wash it

I would clean the bag by blowing it out with compressed air (lightly). If you do wash it, do it by hand in room temp water and air dry. I'm not too sure how to remove the whole bag on that model. You should call your local vacuum dealer to inquire, and ask the same question you asked here on Fixya.
