It is probably clogged somewhere, if i was to guess check the hose.

Hoover model 70930 vacuum. System check indicator stays red.


If the smoking at the base smells like burned rubber it's probably your belt. If it smells electrical it's probably your motor or an electrical problem.

Can anyone help with an older Euro Pro EP055, It has very little suction.


Cleaning filters on a bagless vacuum helps but filters should be replaced frequently, as often as every 3 to 6 months on some vacuums. Foam filters aren't as critical to replace because the pores are very large (which also means they don't filter out the small particles) so they don't clog as easily but paper filters have much tighter pores which become clogged and restrict the airflow. Cleaning paper style filters with water which can pack the fine dust into the pores clogging the airflow even more.
I recommend replacing filters st least onceor twice per year and cleaning them after each use for best performance and longer vacuum life. Blowing the dust out with an air compressor is my preferred method.
Changing filters frequently on a bagged vacuum isn't as critical because the bag collects most of the fine dust, dirt and gunk. The surface area of a bag is much greater than that of a filter so a bag is less likely to get clogged than a filter. Most homeowners change the bag once per month which keeps the air flowing smoothly.

My sebo cleaner keeps almost cutting out but comes back on again after a couple of seconds. I.ve checked for blockages and changed the bag and filters.


Sounds like a bad sensor or a possible loose connection electrically. If you are very handy with tools you could try taking things apaet but a dyson is expensive nso I would leave it to the pro's and take it to the local used vacuum shop. They give the best advice in these situations.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?

Bag was full, changed it, the unit now turns off


Try dialing the control valve to the mid way position. If the unit still shuts down with the bag full light on you have a damaged control valve under the dial on the top of the vac.
This valve failure is common in this model and can only be repaired by someone with original AERUS Electrolux repair parts, generally at an AERUS repair shop.

The performance indicator light will not go out. I have cleaned the bag, filter and hose. there does not seem to be enough suction.


you are clogged somewhere ...

no suction?
performance indicator says no suction?

find and remove the clog.

id be looking in the hose about 4 inches from where the dirt enters the brush but dont limit your looking. The entire system should be checked for a clog. Remove it and you willbe back in business.

I have 'trash picked' more than 100 vacuums this summer, off the curb. 90 were clogged. I cleaned then and turned them into $.

I have an old Hoover turbo power approx 1986 I think its a U1102, the problem is it doesn’t pick up anymore and i wondered if it had some sort of filter on it, I’ve cleaned all the tubes put new bag on but its still got weak suction, could you make any suggestions, thanks…

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The biggest thing on a Hoover Upright is the belt change and the brushes on the brushroll to be of good length, you said you did change the bag and sometimes if it is a hard shell vacuum there is a filter below the bag the needs cleaning or changing, if you have a soft shell or cloth outer bag, you can clean the inside the of the bag or replace the outside bag because even the pores of the bad lose it’s filtration such as your clothes will loosen up after you wash them a few times – the fabric is not as tight as it used to be. The belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months, and keep the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check for any bad gaskets that could be leaking, I may suggest a vacuum tune up @ you 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.

Performance indicator light is on and suction is not strong


You do have a clog! trust me. Check the wand and the yoke which is on the brush assembly. its the part that connects with the wand.
if thats not it then it has to be in the hose. the only way to get it out of the hose is to take one or both ends off and push a broom stick through it

Performance indicator light


check to make sure the bag isn't being sucked into the air filter. open the access door where the bag is and you'll see the air filter at the bottom. to check, leave the door open while you would see the performance indicator light on, and then pull up the bag. this is one of many solutions i'm sure to the performance indicator problem.
