The foam may be a sound suppressor. Your vacuum may need a new hose. Old hoses have a liner on the inside that can collapse. Try removing the hose and see if you have good suction on the vacuum without the hose on. If you do it. Means the hose is bad or clogged

SOURCE: Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.

You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.

Piranha floor steamer


I have a Pirahna 336 Floor steamerModel No.3001. after i fill the unit with water and turn it on , it dumps the water in 1 lot on the floor instead of turning it into steam. I took it apart and found on the base of the water cannister there are 2 orange rubber spacers approx 30mm wide x 10 mm thick either side of another Rubber washer 30mm wide x 9mm thick which covers the hole where i would expect the steam to come from. This Ribber washer has lost just about all of it's orange rubber covering as it has perrished. Can you advise me where i can procure a new washer and if by renewing this washer will it fix my problem?

Euro-pro model EP923H Steam Valve


I suspect you have done something on this by now but . . . You need to pry out a plastic cap/insert in the top of the handle. Beneath it are 1-2 screws to remove. The halves will then come apart. I have mine broken down but have no idea what to do now. It is not making steam. Reply if you have any thoughts.

I'm not really a technician, but I used to sell Filter Queens and was taught how to maintain them, and have tackled "fixing" some problems. I am a 71 year old great-grandmother of 8, but have good health...


i just took my old majestic apart to fix the motor
on mine, when you open the top of the machine where the exit hook up is
you take out those three screws
the top case comes off and you can get to those three screws and alot more of the motor as well

Good Luck !

Shutting off due to overheating


The foam style filters they sent you go in the top of the vaccume above the canister. There is a sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating an orange lever in the top of that compartment. This releases a plastic retainer with the foam filter in it. Mine was so caked with dirt after 1 year of use it took a while to clean it up. I thought the vaccume was done for in only a year.

Brushes not rotating on my Hoover Steam Vac Dual


The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

Hoover mach 3 cyclone vacuum shut off during useage. can't turn it on. cleaned it out and let it sit thinking overheated? this is 2 months old. help?


I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
