Re: weak pick up power

That's true!!! you've take that for granted because metal strips such as the hair clip will tend to deteriorate the engine power. Since the turbine of your vaccum cleaner uses dynamo to provide for spin and it has supply electromagnetic charge. Since there's a metal that has picked up, it will absorb the magnetic power of dynamo causing your engine to malfunctioned step by step.. Better check the engine to a liscensed technician to repair the problem.

Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?

Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

It is a dirt devil Royal which I use to vaccum stair steps. it is a new vaccum . not it will not work, the brush will not rotate. I looked to see if some hair was the problem but no hair or fuss. ...

Hi, I am sorry it took this long to get back to you and I promise I will get right on this. We are having issues with our e mail notifications.
You say this is a new vacuum, do you mean brand new? never used before? I am going to look into the dirt devil problems and see if we can narrow down the causes. I assume you tried this in several outlets to make sure it is not the outlet. Does the motor run at all? or is it running but the brush not turning and not picking up dirt.?

While using the power mate rug part I caught a small rug and the vacuum would no longer pick-up .

Check to see if there is a reset button on the head. This protects the machine for times like you described. When something jms up the reset button will turn ofdf th machine. Simply push the reset. Hope this helps, Chris

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't

Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Vacuum throws dirt onto machine and not in it

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your machine is blocked. This is why the dirt is being dropped back out on your floor and also why the bin is not filling up.

Simply follow the blockage procedure in your user guide, or on our website at Visit the support section and you will be able to download a user guide. This will also allow you to confirm if the machine is correctly assembled and that there are no parts missing on disconnected.

Kind regards

Noisy on rugs!

Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.

Have a good day

Now rotate brush slowly by hand the bristles of the brush should just kiss the edge of rule. If ther is a gap you will need toreplace the roller.

Not sucking at full power. lines are clear. don't understand.

It would help to know what brand of machine you have and if it's a vacuum cleaner or a carpet shampooer.(It sounds like a shampooer.)
