1 Answer

Loud noise, smell smoke, brushes turn slower than before, stoped using

Hover floor mate was working fine, then I switched it to dry pick up. There was a loud noise which continues. The brushes don't spin as fast and I smell smoke. Is it possible to get engines and transmissions for this toy.

"Power Brush" attachment doesn't work


When my hover suffered a similar issue i found the problem to be a little stone caught in the part you described as a water wheel, however later i found that one of the connecting hoses from the front of the hover had a little blockage , later, i actually washed the filters and left them to dry over night wrapped in a towel on a warm heater, it was back to normal , the last hover gave in as the motor started to slowly give in , it could be this

Samsung vcu366 making loud noise but picks up


what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.

Brush doesn't turn all the time


The belt is worn out and you need to replace it. It's slipping and that's what you smell.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It...


Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know it's your belt. if it does smoke, then it's probably the motor burning up.

Burning smell


Have you checked the the hoses are free of debris?
Is the setting for floor on when you are vacuuming the carpet.

Turn id on an see if it will **** up some pennies.
Use the hose for that.

Check for string hair, etc cought in the brush.
Use the small pick knife that should have came w/ the dyson to cut away and thing caught in the brush.

Hope this helps.

Hoover floor mate 500


If you mean the footswitch that shifts from wet to dry, trun the machine over with the brush assembly removed. There is a black rectangular oush button on the left side. This is the wet/dry switch. Make sure it is in contact with the white post to the left of it . It is the indicator that moves when you step on it. Push the button all the way in and out until it latches. After that it should work OK. Hope yhis helps.

I cannot figure out how to use my cleaner floor mate


At the risk of giving a simplistic answer, let me go through the steps I go through every time I use mine:
1) Plug it into the wall
2) Take out the upper "hopper" and fill it up to the fill line with hot water
3) Put in the capful of cleaning solution (about 2 oz.)
4) Gently swish it back and forth, then put back into upper unit until it clicks into place
5) For best results, set the vacuum on Dry and vacuum the house first, then clean the lower "hopper"
6) Set the vacuum to Wet, put the scrub brushes on, depress the trigger and do overlapping strokes, a section at a time I depress the trigger on the push stroke, then release it for the pull stroke. I clean a section, then turn off the scrub brushes and go over it again without the scrub brush or touching the trigger (trying to pick up as much water as possible).

On average, when refilling the water/cleaner solution for the top hopper, empty and clean the lower hopper. When the floors are finished, completely clean that lower hopper or it will smell!

Hope this helps...

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.
