It won't pick up


Almost certainly if your vacuum is otherwise operating correctly but not picking up it will be either a blockage or a broken belt. The belt is super easy to check, turn the machine on and put it in normal operating position and tilt the head so you can see the roller. If it is not spinning it is going to need a new belt.
The blockage is a different matter and you will need to test suction at the hose, then the front to figure out where the obstruction is to be able to remove it. If you need more help please provide the model and make of your vacuum.

My Electrolux vacuum cleaner is not picking up and when I looked the brushes are not spinning round.


Sounds like a broken power nozzle belt. This is easy to fix. Under the power head there are screws, undo them and pull the top off. The belt is easy to get at and not hard o replace. Chris

Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    Step 3.

    • Tilt the machine forward.
    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.

    Dyson dc14 has lost suction


    Down on the lower right hand side of the vacuum, when you're behind it, there is a little 'J' shaped piece with a purple clip on it. Tilt the vacuum up and unclip this. Usually, people who have these amazing vacuums will accidently **** up things like lollipop sticks/pens/paperclips/etc. that don't bend... and will stay in this piece. This should solve your problem.

    I have a whispertone vacuum, different model #, but maybe instructions will be the same. Turns out I didn't need a new belt, just clean out the crud and reset overload protector. The instructions in the manual tell you to remove the light cover and bulb first. To do this, press in and lift both sides. Push in and turn bulb counterclockwise to remove. (you need to do this because the next step involves turning the unit over). This takes you to
    Step 2. Unscrew the cover screws ( on either side of bulb).
    Step 3. Turn unit over. To remove cover, insert screwdriver at cover tabs on both sides and twist to release tabs.
    Step. 4 Turn unit right side up. Press handle release pedal and lower the swivel. Tilt cover forward from back until front snaps free.
    Step 5. Carefully insert and twist screwdriver at each brush support to free brush from base.
    Step 6. Remove worn belt.
    Step 7. Slide brush supports off to check and clean brush support areas.

    To replace belt: slide washers and brush supports onto brush assembly.
    Install new belt over motor drive, then over brush sprocket.
    Snap brush supports into place on base. Be sure brush supports are not upside down.
    Line up front of cover and base. Rest cover on front edge of base. Tilt cover to back. Press cover firmly until side tabs snap into place. Replace cover screws, light bulb and light cover.

    Kirby Sentria doesn't pick up visible dirt


    As far as picking up - I suspect that your belt is not properly installed. Watch the video manual HERE. in the first halve of the video there is an instruction how to properly instal nozzle.

    You have to turn the bag about 30-40 degrees countercloclwise so plastic protrusions on the tube top adater (ones that keep bag attached to the tube) will allign with cuts in bag cardbort so you can pull the bag off the adapter. If you will take a look at the new bag - you will see what I am talking about.

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Your problem may be solved as simply as pushing the small red reset button exposed on top of the power head when you tilt the arm back. Very simple. Hope this helps.
