    The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


    You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

    We inherited the shopvac 16 gallon. I bought the required filter (foam) but the dust blows back from the blow hole. Am I missing a part?


    The foam filter is for use when using the vac. to pick up water. Now you should have a paper filter for picking up dry material.If possible you may want to look inside of one at the store. Hope this helps.

    I bought my first craftsman 9 gallong wet/dry vac - i do not know how to operate it and I don't want to break anything. I have a pamphlet but it is still confusing. can I pour a few gallons of water into...


    Hello again.
    When it says wet vacuuming, it means that the vacuum will pick up water, not dispense it. When you are using the vacuum to pick up water, you'll need to remove the paper filter element under the motor, inside the canister, to avoid ruining it. When the filter is removed, you will see a plactic ball inside a cage under the motor. It's purpose is to float up on the surface of the water being vacuumed up, and prevent the motor from getting water into it. You'll be able to tell when the canister is full; the noise the vacuum makes will change and sound higher. Also, the suction at the hose will quit. At that point, shut off the vacuum and drain the water.
    Be sure to replace the paper filter when you swap back from liquids to solids.
    Best regards, --W/D--

    Eureka the Boss Smart Vac. Hose has suction, but still isn't picking up. Weird.


    Your belt is probably broken. Check your belt and make sure your brushroll has not seized. If both of those check out ok, (because the smartvac belt doesn't stretch,) the belt tensioner assembly may have gone bad.

    The main problem is a weird noise caused by the brush not spinning on the carpet like it used to do strongly leaving a sweep mark on the carpet, which helps pick up the dust through suction. Seems to have lost the power, so I raised it, but it still doesn't pick up that well. What should I do, I already checked the belt, ripped all linen spinned on the brush. It just doesn't leave that mark on the carpet after being swept, it just stops. What should I do? Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum

    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. A couple of the problems you seem to be having is that the belt is stretched out and not picking up well and the other is the brushroll is not spinning freely in order to pup the dust and dirt. The average flat belt change is every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and the check your brushroll to see if that spins freely if not it is probably bound up with thread and hair and needs to be cleaned off @ every belt change. If the belt is tight it cleans well and the brushroll does not get a chance to wrap around the brushroll and slow it down. All part of the maintenance of a vacuum cleaner. 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.

    I bought a Hoover Wind Tunnel in January 2008. At first it worked great though very noisy. Now it will not pick up small fuzz on medium shag carpeting. I have checked the bag, the filter, the belt, and obstructions and there are none. Plus the noise level has increased. What is wrong?
    I am very dissatisfied.


    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
    Sorry you are having a problem, using the Hoover Windtunnel is a very good vacuum. Reading youre description, the belt is one of the main reasons you are not picking up the small fuzz on a medium shag carpeting. The belt change on the average , if you have one or 2 belts should be changed every 4 to 6 months as a rule, and the brushes need to be in good shape as well, if those two are working well you may have a bad seal on the motor or a broken fan blade(s) and that would decrease suction and you would need to replace the fan. Also check the gaskets if they are broken or damaged or pinched and letting air through the suction will leak out. These are some of the items to check for, so feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

    Loud noise when running.


    Bad bearing or fan in the motor is most likely the problem. You would have to replace the motor.
