SOURCE: replacing the hepa filter

The cover for the HEPA filter is located immediately beneath the clear bin, and is exposed when you remove the bin. Removing the filter cover without breaking something can be a bit of a challenge, but if you look carefully you will see how it fits on, and then, with care, you can lever it off. Then the filter just lifts out. Don't worry if you do break the cover - the cost of a new one is nothing compared with the filter itself. You will need to buy a new adhesive seal too, as the old one will be stuck to the old filter.

My shark vacuum is having problem 1st the hepa filter kept popping off I made that stop and now the brush won't turn what do I do


Usually a filter popping out means it needs cleaned or replaced. If the brush won't turn it may be the belt, or depending on your model it could be the brush roll or brushroll motor, switch, wiring etc. check these items.

Heppa filter pops off when I turn the vacuum on


Did you replace the exhaust air diffuser? That's the plastic type vent housing the hepa filter was under.

Ultraactive vaccum filter keeps popping off


There are two possible causes for this issue. The most likely is that your exhaust filter is blocked and so the air literally cant get out. You need to replace the exhaust Hepa Filter every six months anyway so get a new one and see if that fixes the problem. If it still is popping off after this it means the tiny lugs on the filter cover are damaged so you will need to get a new one of those.

Blows hepa filter from mounting


I have seen generic filters do this. Be sure to use original Miele filters. The generics are a few dollars cheaper to buy but you end up with an inferior quality filter that could cause other problems by continued use. same is true with bags.

A clogged filter may also do this. Miele vacuums are very tightly sealed, the exhaust air has to come out. If the filter is clogged, the pressure could pop the filter out, HEPA filters are suggested to change out about every 50 hours, for most people this is between 1 - 1.5 years.

We had a Miele come in for service the other day with the same complaint, installed filter was a generic, customer said it was a new filter just installed. We replaced with an original filter and problem ceased.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Hello,

This is a pretty clear indication that your filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. HEPA filters are different then say pre-motor filters, or sponge filters. Because they are usually the last filter before the air is exhausted, it's usually catching very tiny microscopic particles. Because of this, trying to determine if the filter is dirty or clogged can be difficult, if not impossible on HEPA pleated exhaust filters.

The fact that your filters continues popping out, indicates that the air is not being able to pass through the filter as it's supposed to, and is instead the air is having to try and find a different way to escape, causing the force of the back up of air to blow the filter out.

I think if you replace this filter, it should fix the problem completely. Because this filter is designed to capture microscopic particles rather then large particles, washing this filter, or getting it wet is not advised, and wouldn't be an effective way to clean it. You really will need to replace the filter soon, but if you'd like to try and prolong the life of your filter, you may use an air compressor, and blow from the top of the filter (the area that looks clean), and clear the microscopic particles, and dust out of the filter this way. If you suffer from breathing issues, asthma, or allergies, I would highly advise against doing this without a mask on. The dust that will come out is extremely fine dust that can cause people with the above conditions to suffer greatly. Doing this outdoors is highly recommended.

An air compressor can certainly prolong the life of HEPA filters, but again, sooner or later you'll need to replace the filter.

WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin


I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.
