hi phoned vax today.. they said there's definately NOT a problem with that particuliar model. I now have to send the 2nd cleaner back to them to repair...If this problem occurs again they will replace it with another model!!!
so watch this space!!!
I think having two vacs blow up is too much of a coincidence!
I have been using vacs for nearly 40 years & I've never had this happen before!
If Anyone comes across the same problem I would appreciate you letting me know.
Thanks for your time
Liz

Dyson v6: It looks like it stopped charging.


If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

I took the filter out of my Windtnnel Pro Pet to clean it (not with water) I put it back in and now the vacuum wont turn on.


I'm going to guess that when you put it back together it didn't quite go back in correctly. There could be a switch that prevents it from turning on if the filter is not installed. Make sure that it is seated correctly. I hope thats all it is.

How do you replace the belt on the pet power paw vacuum


1. Pry off adjustable clear cover with flathead screwdriver.
2. Unscrew 2 Philips screws holding power paw together.
3. Place tips of needle nose pliers into the two holes on each of the black round pieces on the ends of either end of the roller. Twist and the black pieces will release.
4. Remove roller, use needle nose pliers or awl to dig out any hair wrapped up in the roller or especially the ends of the roller at the metal pins.
5. Replace belt and put everything back together in the same order you took it apart.

It stopped working while vacuuming. Still getting power, compressor still working but not sucking.


I'm an owner of an LG LuV200R vacuum cleaner. After years of use it started having an overheating issue where the suction motor stopped after only a few minutes use. The brush motor and compressor motor still worked. After cooling down with power off for at least a few minutes suction motor worked again but quickly shut down. Here's how I fixed mine:

First make sure to clean all 3 filters and let dry for 24 hours if cleaned with water (recommend, but compressed air works good too). A clogged HEPA filter could cause overheating. Check all air passages and hoses for blockages. I've always maintained/cleaned my machine so I had to go a little deeper...

On the control board there is a semiconductor which screws to a right angle aluminum heatsink. See attached picture. My screw was slightly loose; loose enough for there to be a tiny gap between the metals so little heat was dissipated from the semiconductor. My infrared thermometer showed 260°F while running. I tightened the screw and running temp went down to 160°F. Once reassembled the vacuum has yet to overheat and shut down. It's a great vacuum so I'm glad it's working again.

To access the control board you need to remove the front facing plastic motor housing located below where the cord is stored. ALWAYS unplug unit before opening. 2 screws face the rear of unit, (now tilt top of vacuum down all the way) 2 screws face the front at the bottom, and 2 more right above HEPA filter (remove HEPA filter). There is a nut behind culprit screw so you may need to remove the control board attached with 2 screws. I recommend using compressed air to clean off control board if dusty, and check for cut/burnt wires. I had a darkened wire which I guided away from control board at reassembly.

A dab of locktite wouldn't be a bad idea on the loose screw/nut. Hope this helps others.

The brush is clean and spinning but it isnt picking up anything and just pushing pet hair around.


You mentioned pet hair. Remove the brush cover and check for a plug (possibly pet hair). Sounds as though you have a plug somewhere and it's not allow the suction to pull it through. Also check your filter and clean or replace as necessary. Hint; Never let you container get over half full, it reduces the suction.

The vacuum won't turn on. We've tried multiple outlets with the same problem. We've cleaned the filters, which caused it to turn on once, but a week later the problem occurred again. HELP!


I have this vacuum and mine would not turn out and it turned out to be the top half where the power switch is located was not aligned properly. I ended up putting a new screw in, but before I could see where the vacuum was not aligned and would just push the top half forward to align with bottom half then vacuum would work. I believe they should have supplied a longer screw to keep this from happening.

Sounds funny/shutting off after few minutes


Yup! Clogged hose on the back of the cannister! Unit is designed to shut off for 30 minutes when this happens to protect your motor. Remove top of hose where debris enters the cannister through a filter above it, then remove the other end of the hose from the bottom of the back of the cannister, take it outside and use something long that'll fit inside the hose to force out all the clogged debris and hair through the top of the hose.
