Usually a mixture of 1/3 cup of white vinegar with 1/3 cups of water when poured into and around suction opening will solve the problem.

Will it power up without the hose attached? If it does then you have a clogged hose. If not, there is a circuit board by the motor that may be bad.

No power in power nozzle
Posted by pjs5451 on Apr 06, 2008
Vacuumed with power nozzle one day working fine took attachment off to use crevice tool reattached power nozzle and no power whatsoever.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow Power Nozzle does have a reset button on the newer model on the top of the power nozzle, just push it and it should reset, or check all your pigtail connections to make sure they are connection and the cord leading to the actual Rainbow Vacuum itself. Out in left field might be that the power nozzle motor could be shorting out or not working or dead and might be in need of replacement. Check the cord for any frays or bad connections. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: how to get rid of dog smell

I had this problem along with a clogged filter. I used the solution for clogged filter here on Fixya and the dog smell went away too. It has to do with the flange on the cylinder getting pushed up out of position. Give it a try.

SOURCE: dirt devil purpose for pets vacuum quit working

The motor overheats from the filter being clogged underneath the canister or the canister or both are clogged-without the air flow the motor overheats and shuts off as a precautionary measure.By letting the motor cool off it will start again but will turn off shortly if the filters are not properly cleaned.Hope this helps everyone.

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 116 upright beltless vacuum, agitator will not turn

I had the same problem. The agitator stopped turning after I sucked up a foreign object (my wife's watch) and it got jammed in the intake. After removal of the watch the agitator did not spin when turning on the machine, and the reset button never deployed (it remained buried in its housing and would not depress with a paper clip). The agitator was not bound and I could manually move it in both directions with ease. Faced with prospect of paying $125 or more for a repair, a good sharp kick to the chassis from the top promptly fixed the problem. I have found that kicking malfunctioning electronics often works.

How can I eliminate the bad smell that my vacuum has , it smells like bad Feet Odor ... the vacuum that i have is a Dyson DC65


You've probably got some crud in/on/around the filters/collection systems/hoses.
You can try sucking some baking soda into it. Just pour some on the floor/rug and vacuum it up. It wont hurt your rugs...it'll actually help clean them.
However, the long term solution is to thoroughly wash all the parts of the collection system.

Used the vacuum cleaner to clean up damp baking soda on a mattress. Since then, the suction hose part is not working properly. Could I have clogged it? And what can I do?


Hi there,

We wouldn't recommend using your DC24 to pick up damp baking soda, as it's not designed or tested for this purpose. To check your cleaner for blockages, please follow the simple steps shown in our online guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1120&product=DC24-ALLFLOORS

It's also a good idea to wash the filters - you can find out the correct way to do this by watching our video demonstration embedded below.

Hopefully, following these steps should resolve your issue. However, if you're still having difficulties, please get in touch with us directly so one of our experts can run through some troubleshooting steps over the phone with you. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Smells like wet dog


Try vacuuming up some baking soda or use some carpet deodorizer then vacuum that up.

Stinks!


Cleaning and replacing the bag may help-it sounds like it may have gotten wet at one time.You couls also sprinkle baking soda lightly over your carpet and that may help absorb odours in the system. If the hose is detachable and any other pieces you can wash them with a vinegar solution.
Hope that helps. tc

Vacuum smells


Hi,
My wife happens to have a rainbow that I picked up at an auction for $2.00.
When it begins to smell, we use a quarter cup of vinagar in with the water and use as usual.
You may not apprectiate the smell of vinagar, believe me, it works.
It may take a couple of vacuum sessions and changing of the vinager water each time, but one good thing about vinagar, it is an old time disinfectant.
