Hi Zulydia,

does that version has the "restore" red button in the upper side?
If yes, when you push it, the engine showld work for litle time only (restoring), then the rest is normal. If not, the engine can be clogged, wich needs to be opened and cleaned (tuff operation but easy). Normally it happens when the engine has a overheat.

My DC72 still make pulsing intermittenly after cleaning filter twice and the dust container. I have checked all channels for blockage and everythig is clear. What else can I do to fix this?

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

Shark rocket ultra light

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Your Shark vacuum is equipped with a motor protective thermostat. If for some reason your vacuum overheats, the thermostat will automatically turn the unit off. Should this occur, you would need to restart the motor thermostat. Turn off your unit and unplug the vacuum from the power. Clean the filters and dust cup filters. Check for blockages in hose, accessories and inlet openings. Then allow the unit to cool for a minimum of 45 minutes before plugging it back and turning it on.

I have a Rainbow E2 which I purchased in early October. My Power Nozzle is not working right. When I used it before, it pulled, now it barely moves on its own. I cleaned all the hair off of it and it...

Does the brush turn freely when you try to manually turn it?
Does it rotate when the power nozzle motor is on?
If not, it's most likely the belt that turnd the brush has broken. This will result in the brush not rotating, which in turn doesn't provide the pulling action and ease of use it's supposed to have.
If it's a new machine, you need to take it to the nearest Rainbow store for warranty repair. Disassembling yourself will result in the warranty being voided.

Suction paower

First thing is to check all your hoses, and filters. Filters rob your vacuum of air flow which equals power.. I don't think that you have a clog so much as I am inclined to think that you have dirty filters. In a wet vac, you can rinse your filters out, but they will eventually need replaced. It's a good idea to have an extra filter around for such an instance.

Cleaning the flter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Cleaning the filter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Posted by jonesjpc on Jul 06, 2008
This one does not have the tabs to depress as but has two screws in that area still doesn’t see how to get to the filter. Also I need instructions to replace power cord; On the E series single speed.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Rainbow E Series there really is no actual filter – the water is the filter for this particular vacuum. Before you remove the separator under the motor, place a newspaper or towel under the Rainbow without the water pan under the vacuum and then turn it on for a short period of time and spin the water moisture out of the motor and separator; then some of the maintenance is to remove the separator under the motor and clean that and then replace it. As far as replacing the cord there are screws under the Rainbow that need removal and then you can get to the end of the cord for replacement. The easiest way is to mark your wires and the cord will be much easier to replace otherwise check the owner’s manual for cord replacement or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Rainbow factory for questions.

U5180-910 vacuum shuts off on own

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
