Why does my Lindhaus Cannister vacuum shut off after I got thicker carpet and I adjusted the thickness?

I adjust carpet depth but if you stop and don't move the rug beater the sweeper shuts off.

You can also set the brush to the middle setting of the special/ normal brush settings. Also, your micro-sweep blade might have popped off making it very hard to push in that direction. The micro-sweep is the plate held by two screws right below the intake with the little blade that sticks up.

SOURCE: beater bar brush stopped working...

Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.

The suction is so great that it sucks up your carpet, then nothing works. I get my children to stand on the corners/edges of the rug so that it stays perfectly flat on the floor while I vacuum. Or, you can turn off the brush roller (set it to "hard floor" setting). Or, tip the vacuum cleaner's front up slightly while vacuuming, to reduce suction.

SOURCE: Powerhead woes

I've had my Hoover S3755 for about 2 years and loved it, at least until the last couple of months when the "belt slipping off" problem started. I changed the belt and the vacuum would work for a little while then the belt would come off again. I put on a new belt again and within minutes the belt had slipped off. I took it to my local vacuum repair about 4:00 in the afternoon. By 4:45 I got a call from the repairman that he'd fixed my vacuum! What did he do? He put a different belt on it. He put a Rainbow belt on my Hoover that's thicker and doesn't have as much "give" as the Hoover belt. It's also a little bit wider than the Hoover belt. Now when the brush slows or stops at a carpet edge the belt doesn't slide off.

It is because the belt is worn or stretched and needs to be replaced. Here are the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Oreck vacuum seems to drag and be extremely heavyto push. Why. What can i do


On some carpets you may need a vacuum that can adjust the height for thicker or longer carpets. If it worked ok on your carpets before it may need a new belt or brush roll.

New carpet is very thick. Hard to push vacuum. Is there an adjustment to allow more air?


Your vacuum should have and adjustment for the "depth of pile" of the carpet.
If it has no such thing at all, ( a few do not,) one solution is to pull it backwards slowly instead of pushing it.
It should clean forwards as well as backwards for you.
God bless your efforts.

When I'm vacuuming it's very hard to push


There are many reasons, perhaps yours is one of these.
1) The carpet/bare floor selector.
This adjuster raises and lowers the front of the vacuum according to the depth of the carpet
. A thick carpet has the wheels dropped way down away from the front of the machine, a smooth floor or a very short pile carpet has the wheels up high , close to the front of the machine.
Having the selector set wrong can cause this problem.
2) Check to see if the front wheels are rolling freely.
If one or both are clogged with hair, carpet strands, string, etc., the vacuum can be hard to push.
God bless your efforts.

We had an older dyson vacuum that worked great until it had to be replaced and now our new one it works great on short carpet but is very difficult to push on thicker carpet.


Hi Ronnie, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your new Dyson vacuum on this particular type of deeper-pile carpet. It's possible your new machine has higher suction at the cleaner head, and this could mean it needs slightly higher push-force on certain carpets with deeper, denser pile, or thick underlay. You may find it helps to use the vacuum with the brush bar switched - carpet manufacturers will sometimes advise vacuuming deep-pile carpets in this way.

However, I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can take some further details about the issue. When you have your Dyson vacuum easily to hand, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). Our experts will be happy to discuss your concerns.

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Why does my kirby shake ?


If your Kirby is just sitting on a hard surface and is shaking, something is either on the fan or brushroller putting it out of alignment. Here is how to change the fan / impeller if broken.
how to change Kirby fan / impeller.

If it shakes while you are pushing against the carpeting you can try adjusting the height of the brush until it is just touching the carpeting. Some thick pile carpeting the Kirby will still shake or jump on, the strong suction causes it to trip over the thick pile that is lifted up when vacuuming.

I have a Sebo x1. It will not pick up from the head.


Hi
If the wheel isn't moving when the upright handle is swung down normally then the hydrallic action will be broken. The wheel only adjusts to the carpet when the handle is swung down and the wheel goes to the highest position. HOWEVER if you have large pile / thick carpeting then the X1 will struggle to pick this up as it doesn't cope well with thick carpeting. Sebo's G1 series with a manual adjuster dial is better in that respect. Put back the wheel as normal and check that it is lowering once the handle is unlocked. If it doesn't show up with the lights on the front of the hood showing that the wheel is going down, then its either the carpet thickness or the hydrallic wheel mechanism is broken. Contact Sebo in your country and they can usually send out a line diagram or suggest a repair.
