SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: my vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????

is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback

SOURCE: My Electrolux Upright vacuum cleaner will not

The air passage form the brush area to the bag is plugged somewhere. Remove the lower plate and the bag above so that you have access to the air passage from both ends. A hooked, stiff wire will help pull the debris out. This problem is usually caused by delaying a change to a clean bag. A higher-pitched motor/fan sound is a clue that air flow is being restricted.

If you push inwards on each side of the light cover on top you can remove it. With the light cover removed remove the (2) access screws. Now you will be able lift of the entire top cover from the base. You will then see the belt and roller brush, remove the old belt and replace with a new one.

The washable filters very seldom wear out, they are sponge, but the prefilter on the housing CERTAINLY wears out. You can fix it here:

Kenmore progressive 360 vacuum cleaner has low suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Kenmore upright vac model 33922 - good suction but developed loud whining noise after accidentally vacuuming room without bag. Added bag and changed both filters. Still makes noise. How can I stop noise?


The bag is the first stage in your filtration. Most times what you did will draw fine dust right through the filters and into the motor itself, affecting the bearings and clogging the motor fans, throwing them off balance.
The fact that there is a new noise would seem to indicate bearing problems which will only worsen unless the vac motor is dismantled, fans cleaned and bearings either replaced or cleaned and repacked.

Belt keeps breaking.


your brush roller isn't turning unplug the vacuum and see if you can turn the brush roller and also notice if it turns freely or is it stiff,take the roller out and remove strings,carpet strands and hair.if you can pull the ends off clean the ends good and maybe add just a little drop of machine oil on the bearing on the inside the roller where the bearings are.clean the motor shaft.there is probably old burnt rubber on the motor shaft.you can use a pice of emery cloth ,clean it till you see the polished finish .but i would say your problem is in the brush roller and the motor shaft.i hope i was some help to you.can you please leave some feedback

Power head for Kenmore Canister Vac


Another potential problem for the increase in difficulty in turning the beater bar (drum) could stem from extremely dirty bearings, located at each end of the beater bar. I've seen hair knotted up to the point it chokes the bar and significantly reduces its ability tpo turn.

Motor goes on and off briefly at regular intervals


Sounds like you may have a bad or loose connection, could be one of wires in the hose to the handle harness or the harness itself may be causing the problem. Also be the motor or relay causing a problem.

Kenmore Bagless Issue


after cleaning the filter,replace the bag.But this time before you close the lid,make sure you remove the hose.after the lid is closed then put the hose back on.

leaving the hose connected to the lid after closing will create a gap between the bag holder and the bag.so just remove the hose first before changing the bag
