Check down by the brush roll to see if the inlet is clogged. This type of problem usually means there is a clog. But you do have a year's warr. on this, if you can't figure it out, then take it a Sears repair shop.

SOURCE: Need to buy a new vacuum cleaner

If it is value-for money you are looking for, Look in the Ads papers for anyone selling a Kirby G3 or G5. Yes these are heavy - but they are power assisted! They really do "beat" the carpet, and have enough vacuum to lift a fitted carpet UP.

I bought one 8 years ago, and have only relpaced 2 belts in that time.

It is what the hotels use every day.

The second option for longevity is a Henry. These again are used industrially, but are no good for carpet beating - only removing surface dust by vacuum only.

The third option would be a Dyson or similar design of bagless, but it MUST be a good brand name, and priced middle to top.
The price does reflect the build quality and materials used.

Make sure you change the pad filters when specified or the motor will burn out. This is a known fault.

If this solves your problem, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

In between the filters there's an access panel that can be removed - there may be a blockage there. You should also check your hose for a blockage.

Otherwise you may need to take it to your local Electrolux Service Center. There may be a problem with the pressure board. The machines have a 2 year warranty, not sure what it'd be in your neck of the woods.

SOURCE: electrolux vacuum cleaner z4703 doesn't start

HI It could be the a number of issues.
The actual power switch could be at fault and needs replaced which has to be done by an official repairer.
OR if the vacuum cut out initially wait for a day and then try it again.
Also if the filters have been cleaned check that there is no dirt stopping the motor from coming on i.e. check the beater bar (remove the hood if neccessary) and check the drive belt is intact, also check all tubes to see there is no clogging.
If you have cleaned the filters you need to make sure they are dry rather than damp to wet as water seeping into a motor is very dangerous.

Check with a vac repair shop to see if they might have a used top. If not they should be able to order you one. You could call the customer service number located on the label of the vac located on the back or the bottom of your vac for assistance.

Hi! Here are some basic trouble shooting steps for the Presto 2-in-1.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Push the release catch on the hand vac and pull the dust container off the motor unit
2. Remove dust container from filter assembly and cyclone separator.
3. Hold the dust container over trash can and tap out debris.
4. Check cyclone separator for additional debris, empty into trash can
5.Check the rinsable filter. If rinsing is needed, remove rinsable filter, rinse with pleated side facing up. Allow filter to completely dry for at least 24 hours.
6. Remove any hair and debris from the brush roll.
7. Remove the floor nozzle from the cleaner by pressing the nozzle release button on the back of the floor nozzle and pulling from cleaner.
8. Check and clear nozzle of any obstructions.
Hope this helps!

Cant get the bottom lid of dyson dc7 dirt bin to open


Hi there,

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty opening your clear bin. The mechanism that releases the bin base is actually part of your cyclone assembly. When you pull the trigger, a small clip at the bottom of your cyclone releases the bin base. If this clip is missing or broken, part replacement may be needed to resolve the issue.

You can call us directly to order the the cyclone assembly at 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US). The part is also available on our website.

Best wishes,

Jessica

Dyson DC14 animal dust bucket doesn't lock back in


Hi there,

From what you've described, it sounds as if you may not have your clear bin and cyclone pack assembled correctly. Please check you have these parts correctly fitted together - it may help to take a look at the DC14 user guide:

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

The entire container where the dirt accumulates that clips into the handle upright bar keeps coming unclipped. What can I do to stop this? Besides using duck tape.


I suspect you have the same problem I do. The little thumb button above the "d" in "dyson" on the curved handle actuates a little L-shaped piece of plastic that is supposed to clip / unclip from the main body of the machine. If you lift the entire vacuum cleaner by that curved handle, it's too much stress on that piece of plastic and it snaps. The bin stays in place because it's vertical, but no longer latches.

Dyson doesn't sell just the handle - only the entire bin/cyclone assembly at a high price. I haven't found a United States source for just the top (held on with three screws, and easy to remove / replace). It's on eBay England, but the merchants don't ship to the States. I'm hoping to find a parted-out machine at a local retailer.

Good luck. If this is confusing, I can post a photo.

I have a dyson dc07 bagless vacuum cleaner. How do I split the top and bottom halves of the dust collection bin? There is a lever and catch on the side, I have tried pulling and turning, but with no...


Hi at the top of the Cyclone there is a lever underneath the Handle. The Handle I am referring to says Dyson on it. Firstly you must release the Cyclone from the spine. After doing this you will be left with the Cyclone and the Cyclone Bin all in a oner.

To empty the bin you must lift the lever which is underneath the Dyson handle.

You can only seperate the bin from the cyclone whilst the bin flap is open.

Once you have opened the bin flap using the lever you can then use the lever and catch to seperate the 2 items.

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed


The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).
