SOURCE: Carpet roller will not turn. Vacuum still sucks up dirt

It IS true that you can take the plastic cover off the top of the carpet head. But in addition to removing the two Phillips screws at the bottom, you have to manouver the wand release a bit. Loosen the screw and carefully pull the release back just as much as you need to, to remove the cover.

You will also need to pull manually release the four clips - two at the back and two on the sides - to pull the cover off.

However, I did all this and found that the plastic setting holding the roller canister in at one end had been burned out so that the roller didn't sit properly. Nothing I can do to fix it except order a replacement. The original problem was caused by getting carpet ends caught up in the roller. This caused the burning.

SOURCE: My Kenmore bagless intelliclean vacuum is making a

This might help, it was posted on a previous problem but is the same issue you are having it seems: "Here is a possible solution. If the vacuum sounds normal when the green light comes on, then the issue is a suction bypass. Kenmore built a suction bypass in to help cool down and protect the motor should someone either never clean the filter, empty the canister or somehow manage to clog the hose. There is a spring holding the bypass closed and is overridden by vacuum suction. I guess the spring becomes weak, allowing high suction to pull it open which in turn reduces suction so it closes again. It can do this several times per second making a loud racket and slightly affecting performance until the sensor goes green, then the vacuum suction is too low to overcome the spring tension thus why it sounds fine then. The trick? The very hard way (what I did) was to open the vacuum, open the casing where the spring is and pull it apart slightly to increase the spring tension. The easy way is to put tape over the hole where the bypass is. The inlet is under the hose track on the back on the right side as you're looking at it. The hole is about the size of a quarter and you'll see fins across the hole. The tape would keep the suction. The motor would still pull back the bypass but since tape is applied, there would be nothing to reduce the suction thus keeping performance and reducing the noise. However, this circumvents the intended design so you do so only at your own risk."

Uh70015 dirt sensor stays on green. Goes on red for about 5 seconds then green. Can clearly see the floor is dirty and it is picking up stuff.


ahh the good ol electronics on vacuums selling the product again...

not to worry, your feature is working properly, your vacuum is working fine too.

Imagine if you will making a circle with your pointer finger and your thumb. Now put a string or thread across in a straight line there. The string would be the size of the beam of light that the sensor uses. Your finger and thumb are about the size of the tube that the dirt and dust is passing by. Unless the dirt passes and cuts through the beam of light, then it will register. otherwise if it passes around the beam of light, the sensor thinks your carpet is clean.

The opposite sometimes will happen too where it will stay constant red. That means that the sensor is completely covered in dirt and will not register anymore.

Hope this helps.

The Intelliclean function isn't working properly. The indicators illuminate when I switch Intelliclean off, then on again, but the indicators are not changing (nor the power level) when I vacuum dirty...


I was having the same problem with my Intelliclean and I read somewhere on the internet that I should undo the bag, clean in the area where the bag attached to vacuum. When I took bag off, something was stuck there and after I removed it, everything worked fine. I think you need to clean the sensor and check your bag.

Red light stays on


It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.

Sensor wont go to green


Try cleaning the dirt sensor. It's usually located where the bag connects to the vacuum. Take the bag off and clean the inside of the tube that goes into the bag with a damp cloth.

Light on moterhead
Posted by Arnold2 on Apr 08, 2008
The normal green light on the moterhead goes red and we appear to lose suction within the motor head

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I checked with some of my contacts in the vacuum business and they told me that it may not be a United States vacuum and it might be a Canadian or European vacuum and may not be customer friendly to service, if you have a contact with a MAC or Snap On dealer or a metric auto store – as far as the green light on the powerhead the green light is supposed to let you know if the carpet is clean and the red light is supposed to be that the carpet is dirty, and laos it could be that your belt is loose and needs changing – a suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months --- show them the screw and they might have something to fit or release the screw head, as per the removing of the wheel and replacing the electric cable, check with your local vac dealer or you may want to check with the Dyson dealer website and or phone # listed below:

Embedded Dirt Finder green light won't come back on - stays red


The dirt sensor is a motion detector. After it gets dirty it will either stay red or stay green. You can have the vacuum serviced at your local vac shop and possibly get this fixed. Sometimes they are as good as new and sometimes they are not repairable. It will not effect anything else though.
