First be sure that all parts are securely attached, even removing and reattaching can help ensure a properly seated connection. Next check to make sure the filters are clean. Finally check the carpet beater head, to make sure it's free from hair and other debris.

If none of this works, call or email Dyson, even if your warranty is expired, they maybe able to help out further. They have GREAT customer service!

You need to have the vacuum cleaned out. If you are good with tools, just remove the motor and fans assembly, take the fans off and wash them. Brush ALL dirt out of the housing and reassemble. Your Electrolux dealer can do this but it isn't cheap. I used to be the service manager for my area. Since it isn't under warranty, you can have ANY reliable vacuum cleaner shop give a good cleanout. NEVER put anything into the cleaner to make it smell good. Electrolux cleaners get their power by having a straight through suction. The air goes through the motor. Adding smelly things can crystallize onto the motor and burn it out.

This vacuum keeps getting clogged in the hose and has terrible suction. The women who helps clean my house won't even use it as it performs terribly. Any suggestions


check vac air filter(not the dirt collection bag) also something could be lodged in hose mechanism so there is always a partial restriction. make sure the beater bar is not set too low. check the dirt that accumulates in bag to see that there is not an excess number of carpet fibers in there. beater bar should be clean and spin freely.

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

How do i change an Alto halogen light bulb


I am sure you worked it out by now, but for anyone else who is looking; the fitting should have come with a suction cap to attach to the front of the bulb like a plunger to pull the bulb out... terrible design!

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction


Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

There some screws from the bottom to remove then the top cover will come off, then you can check it over to see what the problem is.
