Electrolux precision

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is some good news that goes with it. The good news is, You are not the problem. Hope that makes you fell better, because the bad news is, this cleaner is rubish. Electrolux went bankrupt several years ago and the name was bought by Eureka. It is a poorly engineered , chinese made, disposable vacuum, that gives lots of trouble. Miele, Riccar, Sebo, or Lindhaus are much better choices.

My Dyson DC40 Animal sounds like it's running on half power. I've only had it one day and it seemed great considering it was sucking up an incredible amount of half/dirt. I took the canister to empty it,...

I would recommend you check the gaskets and make sure they are all connected properly so the vacuum doesn't lose suction. Also, check the filters. If they get too dirty the vacuum will lose suction.

Hope that helps.

Suction cuts out, no clogs found in any of the inlets. It's an LG V200R, 4 months old. Returned it to LG twice and it still happens after a couple of uses. Is this a design flaw in the vacuum? Do you...

I bought the lg kompressor 2 mo ago. Made hissing sound and no suction to canister, but the hose had good suction. The inlet was clear, but there was a clog up inside the vacuum between the inlet at the beater bar and the lower hole that empties into the canister(very hard to find). Use a wire hanger to clear it out. just keep jamming it up there and it will clear eventually. There is a clog somewhere, you just have to find it.

The turbine head on my dc08 will not turn although there seems to be lots of suction

The dyson have a bit of an achilles heel with their turbine heads. Half the time you can resurect them by simply removing the baseplate and pulling of the rollers and emptying out all the **** that seems to accumulate inside the brush roller. The other half of the time that same dirt has worked its way to the centre part that holds the rollers, this is where the bearing is and unfortunately there is no way to access the bearing to change it. Not the best design really. If you clean the inside of the rollers very regularly you will not have this problem but who remembers to do that kind of maintenance often enough.
If you need to buy a turbine head to replace a broken one try vacuumspot or nelsonvacuums if you are in Australia.
Hope this helps you.

Abused by family member left water in basin. motor makes noise

Hi, If water was left in the tub when it was being used for wet pick-up, and wasn't emptied before using again for dry, you have sucked water up in and on motor windings. About the only thing you can do at this point, is to let the motor dry for a day or so and see if it continues. Check to see if something didn't get caught in the motor that may be making this noise. I hate to tell you but you may loose the motor. Time will tell. If you still have good suction, I would continue to use it until it dies on you. Check for any debri and dry it good. Keep me posted.
Best of luck to you,

Lost suction

TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

Deodorizing the vacuum

First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Round filter clogs often

The Flange in question is about one inch tall and and approx 4 inches circular ..... When you pull the canister (container to empty) off and empty the contents in the trash .... some of us tap it to get the excess out or off the sides ..... That Flange is the rubber piece attached to the bottom of the darker gray cylinder inside the canister you are emptying. When you tap the canister or after dumping it numerous times that flange can work itself (slide) up the darker gray cylinder ...... it needs to be slid downward and overlap the bottom when you close the canister from dumping it. You can remove the flange and see the grooves .... replace it back on with it hanging off a little to allow for overlap. That should decrease the amount of excess being trapped in the filter. Hope this helps.

Does not pick up anything and makes weird noise

I had the same problem with very low suction and weird noises, the orange light kept coming on.
I always empty the cannister and clean out any hair from the roller. I would take the filter outside and clean it as good as possible. I don't know if I can post a picture on here or not, but I will try. It is unbelievable how much hair comes from long haired girls. Particulary my daughter. Back to the point...
I was cleaning out a drawer one day and came across an extra filter. I put the new filter on, and its like brand new again!
Man, did I feel like an idiot! Just needed a new filter.
