Question about Cirrus Vacuums
I have pushed the lever on the left side of the machine marked 'floor' / 'carpet' but it doesn't alter the height of the machine. I'm not sure what it adjusts.

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.

Two things first, turn the vacuum over and ensure the wheels turn easily. Then check that the brush turns fairly easily. You will be turning the drive motor so there will be some resistance. If there is no resistance then the drive belt is probably broken.
Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: The vacuum has worked fine
The 'automatic' height adjustment consists of front wheels on a swivel mechanism that is forced up or down according to how high or low you are holding the vacuum. So, if you are holding the vacuum at a height for normal operation by it's very design it will be forced into the carpet too deeply which the belt cannot handle, thus breaking it in record time. "The only way I was able to rectify this was by shoving a piece of cardboard under the wheels at an ideal height that would still pick up dirt but not bear down onto to the carpet!"------- ------ In some cases the belt breaks and brush stops working.So inspect the belt and brush too.Sometimes its the broken belt or stuck-up brush problem causing this.--------- It's usually the belt that causes the brush to stop . What happens is, over time the belt will get hot, which causes the belt to stretch. Once the belt stretches out, it becomes too long, and will stop the brush from spinning when it feels any resistance to the brushes. This is most likely why the brush is stopping when you put it down on the carpet.---------- Getting this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

There are no floor settings for this unit. Since the brush is spinning, it will create more resistance when running over the carpet.
