In the event you purchased el cheapo carpets and have lots of rugrats or animals they may just last 5 years. Great things may continue more than a decade. I assume if it were only you as well as your partner and you required your shoes off before going into the home they may extend to 20 or 30 years.

Make sure the emptor at the. Bottom of the bag assembly is turned all the way clockwise. It pushes in on lever on the switch. It won't run if the lever is not pushed all the way.

My Hoover windtunnel brush is spinning but not picking up. I cleaned everything out, but still not picking up. There is another small set of 2 wheels that is not spinning. Could that be the problem?


If it's been over 6 months replace the belt or belts. stretch belts lose elasticity soon after being installed which is why they should be replaced frequently. Your belt may still spin the brushroll but not fast enough to clean carpets properly. After a few months it will pick up some of the sandy gritty soils but will force some of it down into the carpet fibers. Eventually it will become so stretched. It will not pick up hair and lint.

Why does my Electrolux epic 6000 sr shut off with suction?


Hi,

If this Epic 6000 is shutting off when you either just turn it on or while vacuuming with it...it\'s one of several things...1. Change the bag if you\'ve been picking up a lot of "fine" dust such as drywall dust or carpet freshener powder. That\'s ******* them. 2. Being the machine is over 22 yrs. old, the suction control valve inside either needs to be replaced or just cleaned well. This is the usual cause of the vac shutting off especially if you\'ve tried the dial in several different settings. Hope that helps!

How does the carpet cleaner work


Resolve carpet cleaner is a cleaner specifically designed to work on carpets. Resolve comes as a steam concentrate, a powder, a foam spray, or liquid spray. Before using the carpet cleaner you should vacuum the carpet. Resolve carpet cleaner works by being applied to the carpet then worked in with a soft bristled brush. Depending on the cleaner, it will be sprinkled or sprayed onto the carpet. Use the brush to work the cleaner down into carpet fibers. There is a waiting period for the cleaner to work, then you vacuum the cleaner out of the carpet.

There is no suction to our Dyson animal (purple-approx 8 yrs old)


Hello bnsbryan :

1: Check that the Dyson's brushbar knob is turned to the "Carpets" setting for vacuuming non-delicate and raised pile carpet. Vacuuming carpet on the "Bare floor" setting usually leaves a telltale single wheel mark on the pile, and pickup is severely limited.


2:Locate the removable filter on the side of the vacuum. It will be marked with a raised circular representation.

3:Press down on the release button with your thumb as you lift filter housing up and out

4:Examine the filter for debris. Wash the blue foam and yellow framed filter in cold water. (See Tips section.) Let dry for 12 hours. Do not wash the outer filter housing that snaps into the vacuum; simply wipe clean with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Replace the filter when completely dry.

5:Locate the airway inspection valve on the opposite side of the vacuum. Press the release button as you lift the valve up and away from the machine.

6:Remove any debris or clogs you find inside.

7:Use a soft cloth to clean up lighter debris and completely clear the airway valve.

8:Tip the Dyson vacuum over to find the U-bend at the back of the unit. Press the release button as you pull the U-bend down and away from the machine.

9:Inspect the U-bend and remove debris. Be sure to line up the release button as you snap the U-bend back into place.

10:Check all removable pieces to be sure they are attached properly and snapped correctly into place. The soleplate should be flush with the cleanerhead.

What you need for this :

  • Large slotted screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Washcloth
  • Soft cleaning cloths
  • Household surface cleaner, safe for plastics
  • Crochet hook or similar long-handled tool

Warning :

Unplug the vacuum before doing any troubleshooting. Follow all manufacturer's instructions and warnings. The yellow encased filter and blue foam filter pad can be submerged and rinsed in cold water only. Do not use detergent. Do not wash or dry in dish or laundry machines. Do not dry in the oven or microwave.

Roomba 530 runs for about a minute then stops and red light is on. Cleaned everything, still happens. Roomba is about 3 yrs old, lots of use.


Battery time! Get a nice new longer life battery on Ebay, or go for the Nicad replacement if you have no carpet and want to save some cash.

No water


check the pump belt that runs from the brushroll to the pump. frequently the plastic gear on the pump wears out. the pumps also frequently fail. check all solution supply lines for cloggs, and most importantly check the spray nozzles inside the unit by the brushes for cloggs. let me know if you need any further instructions. thanks,
chuck
