Bissell momentum canister vacuum retractable electrical cord not retracting

Either the cord inside is caught on something or the retraction spring is broken.
Try to pull it out further, if you can feel any spring-back then most likely the cord is caught, maybe on itself.
Either way, the canister will probably have to be disassembled to fix the problem.

How do I attatch the power nozzel to the e series rainbow vaccuum? it seems there is cord attatched to the nozzel : I can't figure out where this plugs in??>?

One of your hoses also has a cord that goes the length of the hose. Up at the handle end the cord goes to your handle. At the end that plugs into the unit, the cord plugs into the unit just under the hose hole. You should also have a hose with no cord that is used with the bare floor brush and other attachments.

Plush carpet setting on vaccuum?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 Animal's cleaner head is designed to self-adjust to different floor types - so you don't need to bend down to adjust a dial. You can see how this feature works in the video below. In addition to this, next to the red on/off switch you'll see a silver brush control switch, which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate carpeting.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of carpeting with the brush bar turned off - we'd suggest checking directly with the manufacturer of your carpets to ensure you're cleaning them correctly.

If you'd like any further advice on using your DC41 Animal, please email us at and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Vacuum won't stay on. When I push the button to start it, the motor shuts off as soon as I let go of the button.

You have a broken switch (replace) or hopefully something caught under the switch. Regards Billy

The brushes wont turn,but it has good suction for the hose

you have to remove the bottom cover to inspect the belt. Usually if the brush is jammed, you will smell an odor similar to burning rubber. In the absence of that smell, its likely the belt. Its easy to replace

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming...

When I get most Vacuums that have dies on people most of them the wire has been worn and cut one or more wires on the plug cord. Sometimes the cut can be over looked. Please unplug and check the wire carefully.
Also please post the make model and year you bought it would help in getting you a answer.

Gen 3 model Kirby vaccuum won't start

Checked your bag if they are full, if bagless check your filter. If still not working maybe the protected temperature fuse blown out. You need to open it and replace the protected blown fuse.

No Suction

Your Power head is blocked with hair or dirt,,or the hose which connects the Upright with the power head is blocked.
Try taking a steel coat hanger apart (straighten it out) and then push it into the pickup hose to remove blockage.
