I just noticed that my Ultimate G sounds different and isn't sucking nearly half as well as it did before. Anyone know of things I should check?

Re: Is barely sucking up anything

I dont fix vacumes but I would say if you took the vacume apart you will find that it has a blockage. Clean it out and it should work fine.

Need to know if a part I found after I disassembled. And reassembled my shark professional liftaway navigator vacuum is critical . It's a white rubber gasket of some kind, half moon shaped

The gasket sounds like one between the motor housing and a detachable dirt cup. You didn't include a model number so it's hard to get into specifics, but if it is this gasket I'm speaking to - suction power will suffer and or dirt / dust will leak out. If a different gasket - it may not be noticeable to you that anything is wrong - but gaskets are usually critical components that are used to fill gaps that might otherwise allow dirt, water, dust etc. into spaces where it shouldn't.

Our Dyson sucked something up last week (not sure WHAT) and now the telescoping hose won't ****. Well, it sucks but just BARELY . I took the hose apart and can't see anything, but it makes a weird noise...

Well if the hose is completly clear the blockage is either before that or after that the brush roller should come out to clean the tube as you know also comes out make sure all are clear right up to the collector

Dyson DC14 won't **** from hose but works fine otherwise

There is probably a clog in the U-bend on the back of the unit at the bottom. Removed with a twist of a plastic screw by a coin or screw driver. If not in the U-bend check in the hose/wand.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment

You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.

I had the same issue. I also noticed a different sound when it was turned on. I checked over it and noticed the red float door has a small screen which was clogged. I removed the block and its working again...hope this helps someone =)

Ultimate G Shampoo System

Follow these instructions next time you hook up the shampooer.

As for the bead, you need to lift the nozzle of the power head up and ver the bead to pick it up. The nozzle makes a great suction seal with the carpet and that's why it's pushing it. If you tried that, make sure that the green light on you nozzle is lighting up. If not, you either need to change the belt or make sure you hasve it on properly. For help with this, here's another guide...
