When you take it apart, check the end play and lateral travel of the shaft in the motor that the fan connects to.

There should be a belt tensioner for the V belt, maybe it is not contacting the belt when you tilt the handle back. If this is less then 1 year old, then it is under warranty, take it in to a warranty servicer for warranty repair.

SOURCE: It wont pick up with a new bag in and it seems to **** back in

Check if there is something stuck in the the suction tube, telescopic wand or in any of the parts involved. I had the same problem due to a number of chocolate wrappers stuck in the wand. I almost went and bought another one, luckily i had the sense to ask the salesman at sears the same question and he put me on the right path. The suction tube and wand are detachable from the unit, so you should be able to unplug the parts and check. This is the same solution if you motor is running fine but you have lost suction and\or bag shows full when it is not. Hope i am saving someone some money by stating the obvious here, just the way the sears salesman helped me.

SOURCE: Sebo upright vacuum cleaner - Bag full or clog

Hello,

I have actually written an in depth trouble shooting guide on how to find the clog in your Sebo. Since this light is coming on only when you have the wand inserted into the vacuum and are vacuuming the floor, this indicates that your clog is in the bottom of the machine. The link below will explain exactly what you need to do to locate, and clear this clog.

This should be the exact fix your vacuum needs:

Turn the machine on and be sure the bag expands quickly and fully like a balloon. If the bag does not fill with air, or is soft, there is probably an obstruction inside the handle tube or fan housing. Disassemble the handle to check for blockage, or remove the bottom plate to check the inlet to the motor fan.

Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 - Removing a blockage from the cleaner head or...


If your Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 upright vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be from carpets or hard floors, this may be due to a blockage. A blockage could occur if an item too big for the machine has been accidentally vacuumed up.

After turning off and unplugging the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video to locate and remove any obstructions from the cleaner head, internal hose or changeover valve.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
From what you've described in your question, it sounds very likely that you have a blockage somewhere between the cleaner head and the bin. Please follow the steps shown in the video above to locate any obstructions from the cleaner head, and to remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar.
Once you've done this, it's also a good idea to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide for help locating blockages in the internal hose:

M084600 Dynamite Bagless Upright Vacuum: loss of suction...


A few weeks ago I ran into the same problem, virtually no suction. First I replaced the bad belt (make sure you fit it right or it'll destroy the belt, luckily I bought 2!) and while the vacuum sounded more "alive" it didn't seem to pick up anything any better. The final solution was taking apart the entire intake port section down to the motor and getting the collection tube. It was filled with junk all the way up. I spent over an hour clearing out gunk and animal fur throughout the tubing. Putting it back together was a cinche because the entire vacuum uses one screw type universally. The whole process was pretty intuitive and its clear it's meant to be taken apart for just this purpose.

The motor is sounding real loud lately like its straining to operate, any ideas?


It could be a worn belt. Sometimes worn belts can cause the vacuum to make funny noises. I have listed a link to the owners manual and a link to the belt you need.

Hello, I have a Eureka Sanitaire upright vacuum. It is not picking up as well it usual and I notice it no longer has that deep motor sound. What do you suggest?


Does there seem to be good air-flow and suction? If not, look for a blockage somewhere. Otherwise (and more likely because of what you say about the sound), look to the brush roller. Does it rotate when the machine's switched on? If so, maybe the bristles are worn and no longer make contact with the carpet properly. If not, the belt that drives the brush roller is broken and must be replaced. Your Owner Manual will tell you how to do this.  Good luck!

Dyson won't pick up heavier particles -


check the hose line from the base to inlet of the canister, there may be a blockage, like hair or plastic (i had a lego block and hair)

clear obstruction, and check the belt.
hope this works !
