Vacuum cleaner safety popped

I have an everstar turbo vac 180. bought from home depot last xmas. on the back there is a small circle the size of a dime of plastic inset. now, for some reason, when i try to vaccuum that plastic circle is drawn inwards thus sucking the air in from there instead of the front part of the vacuum cleaner. ergo, it doesn't work. i'm not sure how or when this happened. . .my roomie does the vacuuming and commented on how funny it sounded. . . sigh. . does anyone have an idea how i can fix this or a link to everstars website so i can find a manuel?

Re: vacuum cleaner safety popped

I had same exact problem. It stopped sucking, just spitting out trash back. You need to clean all pipes, all of them. Then take canister apart and clean and wash top filter. It works like new now again

I had the same proble, i pulled out the spring and put it back in, also i checked all my pipe lines to clear them from dirt and found some dirt clogging one of the pipes and that fixed my problem, check your pipes they may be clogged

Re: vacuum cleaner safety popped

I think that is a temp of the motor responsive vacuum bleed to cool the motor. If the motor gets to hot it safety cuts out.
I tried putting a piece of platic film over the "dime" hole and the vacuuming was much more effective, but then the motor overheated and the safety switch cut in. The motor is probably too small for the job it is doing. Alternatively it needs a motor with a separate cooling line and fan. I would just use it for carpets and gat myself a $70 shop vac for any heavy stuff.

On the back of the turbo nozzle are four tiny wheels - one of the wheels has broken off (can't find).

I hate to tell you this but parts for the turbo are not availible.You will have to replace the turbo nozzle.Last I heard they were very expensive.Like $180 .

I have Electrolux canister vac. The suction end pops open every time it loads up.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In the door there are vacuum lines that could be pinched or bent and are not letting air through to the bag, the system is designed that if the bag get to full or the air flow is restricted it will pop the door open and save the motor from burn out. This is repairable and nor to expensive and to check with the local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to call the Electrolux cust serv @ the factory for further information. 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.

We have a Everstar Turbo Vac. 180 and so far its been wonderful.. All of a sudden it became really loud and spitted out the debree. took it to a vac. repair shop and he wouldnt even look at it! Any...

I found my Everstar near a neighbor's trash. I was going to look for another vacuum cleaner for my third level so I wouldn't have to drag my heavy cleaner up and down the stairs. I was totally and pleasantly surprised at this vaccuum cleaner. It had better suction than my dyson. Granted it is kind of a pain to pull out the dirt from the plastic canister but I got used to it. Then one day it just stopped. I know that when the Dyson stops it means something is stuck or clogged and you have to wait for the motor to cool down for it to start again. Same thing happened to the Everstar. It started again. I took the top part where the filter was and found the filter to be incredibly filthy. I washed it, dryed it and put it back and that was the cause of the problem.

We have a Kenmore Stylite Retrax vacuum cleaner, brand new. Suction is not working properly.

I actually pulled back my old vac after using this thing. Having said that I have played around with it and one quick cure is the remove or clean the little circle sponge filter at bottom. If you remove the canister and look at the bottom of vac you will see where the air travels down through a small circle. In there is a sponge filter that is probably clogged. Now Being frustrated, I just removed it and the vac sucks like crazy now. There are just way to many filters to worry about. As mentioned you need to clean the top main filiter, then the top sponge filter, and then dont froget there is alson one in the front of the machine (square paper filter) that catches dust leaving vac. These are on top of the little circle one that I removed, so I dont think it will be missed. Try and see what you think.
