Probably either bearings in the roller brush, a damaged fan blade, or the bearings in the motor. Take the roller brush off completely, and run the VAC without it. If it's much more silent, then the problem is with the bearings in the roller brush. If it's still noisy, then look closely at the fan that produces the suction, if you can. If you see any damaged blades, then you'll have to replace it. If it seems fine, then it's most likely bearings in the main motor that will have to be replaced. The bearings and the fan blade are NOT expensive parts, but the labor at a shop to change the main bearings would be kinda pricey.

Hose has lots of suction but main part doesn't, can you suggest how I can fix it please


By the "main part", it sounds like you may be referring to the electric power nozzle? Look down the stem or neck of the nozzle as it may be plugged. You should be able to see from the opening of the neck through to the brush roll (just slightly). Be careful should you decide to disassemble the nozzle. Some of the newer nozzles can be easily destroyed by over tightening the screws.

I have a Kenmore "Intuition"


I had a different vacuum that did this. I took all manner of things apart looking for blockages and the like .I found that by having the vacuum handle in the full upright position shuts off the suction to this area and doesn't power the brush BY DESIGN. I think this is to get more suction to the hose.

Hose is clear and suction is fime. Icleaned the threads off the rotor brushes but it wont spin


Two things you can do. First, remove the brush and you will find a small plastic clip at each end that holds it in place. Spray a bit of WD40 between the brush and each of these clips then turn each of the clips by hand while holding the brush. They should turn freely with the WD40. As long as you have the brush off, put on a new drive belt. That should rectify the situation unless the motor is burned out. Paul

the problem could be with the power head itself or the hose providing the power. If you can turn the unit on from the handle, then its not the hose and you need to get a new power head..

Have suction, new bag, brush moving but does not


Solved!!!

I went to my local Sears store and the salesman there looked at my vacuum and was able to resolve the issue. There was a piece of wire that had been sucked into the machine that then blocked anything else from being vacuumed up.

Thanks for your help.

Kenmore vac producing burning odor


It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.

Bissell lift off pet-no suction through base (hose is fine)


I had a similar problem with mine. When you take the collector container out, if you reach your hand up, you will fill a round, plastic piece. Gently turn it and the piece pulls out. On the outside of the piece is a foam filter that may be plugged. There is another filter underneath the collection container in a pull-out drawer. Both filters can be washed with cool water, allowed to dry totally, then replaced. I understand that both of these filters need to be washed "frequently". It worked for me, hope it works for you.
