SOURCE: Vacuum making loud noise

It could be 1 of 3 things:

1. The belt2_bing.gif that drives the beater bar. (Inexpensive)

2. An impeller that has a broken wing or 2, throwing it off balance. (Expensive)

3. Or, the bearings in the motor are going out. (Expensive)

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: vacuum has lost suction and is making a hissing noise

I had the same problem with my Kompressor.Initially I had cleaned all three removable filters.There is two in the canister that can be washed with dish soap. The HEPA filter is located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum.This HEPA filter should not be washed.I found that tapping it inside a trash can dislodged alot of dust from it. After cleaning all the filters and canister I was having the same hissing noise coming from a small hole near the bottom of the vacuum. Next I removed a hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and that is where I found a very large amount of debris clogging up the hose. I used a metal coat

Vax mach xp reach seems clogged and light is on


Clean the filters as per the user guide AND remove the silver, where the clear plastic handle is. On te back by the purple catch to release the dirt container is a screw - remove that and then remove the 3 screws on the purple lid with holes in it, remove the lid & clean the "cyclones" - mine were all blocked. Make sure all the bits are clean & dry & re-assemble.

I have a shark navigator vacuum that is making a loud noise and sounds like air is blowing out a hole on the side


I found the issue, the square hole in the side is an emergency air release if the suction is not reaching the dust collector. The cylinder filter screen inside the the top of the dust collector had a thick layer of dust which wasn't allowing airflow to the dust collector, hence the air was escaping through the square hole on the side. I cleaned the screen and it worked as if it came right out of the box.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.
