Sharp upright vacuum EC-12SXT5

There is a lot of wind generated by the revolving brush, but no suction. I've replaced the belt and checked for obstructions in the hose, but can find none.

The inlet by the brush roll may be clogged. Alot of times the hose may be clear, but the inlet catches debris and clogs it. Did you drop something down the hose and did it dome out the other side? But if you unhook the hose and there is suction at the hose end, then it should be clogged in the inlet.

No suction-all lines and filter are clear


If the motor runs, check the following:
Remove the beater brush and clean as best you can. At either end of the brush is a plastic holder that positions the brush in the vacuum body. Add some WD40 to the space between the plastic and the beater brush and turn by hand to be sure they move freely. As long as you have the beater brush out of the vacuum, replace the drive belt.
If you find this solution to be helpful, I would appreciate a Thumbs UP rating from you. Thank you. Paul

New Filters have been fitted on the Sebo automatic XI


OK - I'm a Sebo expert, and we will get to the bottom of this! I need you to do one thing for me: lie the machine on one side, then switch it on and look to see if the brush roller is revolving - KEEP FINGERS and all loose items WELL CLEAR. Does the brush revolve? Then, with the machine switched off and unplugged, see if you can rotate the brush roll by hand. Does it revolve easily, or is there a lot of resistance? Then post a reply here saying what you observe. I'll get back to you when I've got your reply.

I won't pick up dog hair. It seems to have plenty of suction when I detach the hose.


The reason it won't pick up is because the belt is worn. If the belt is stretched or worn it won't pick up well. Here is the belt you need for this model:

Kirby generation 3 won't vacuum. It runs and


You may have suction but if the belt is worn the roller brush won't spin and therefore won't pick up anything. You can get a replacement belt here:

How can i keep the belt onmy sharp vacuum


If you have a rug that has tassles or open bits of "carpet tassles," this will injur ANY upright vacuum cleaner. Best way to vacuum a rug is to use a hose with a suction only floor head or small tool on the end.

Great hose suction, awful floor performance


Lose of suction usually means a clog either in the hose, dirt inlet by the brush roll and clogged filters. But a belt that has stretched to where it won't turn the brush roll under load will make it appear as no suction. If you have replaced the belt in a while, I would try that.

Vacume wont **** opened it up see nothing wrong HELP


If no suction usuallly means a clog, either in the hose and the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Sometimes if the belt is stretched, it won't turn the brush roll under load and it would seem like there is no suction.

Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Self-Propelled


Thanks to reddevil6. Sure enough it was the belt. What I did was take off the belt and flipped it over, worked like a charm. Since it was stretched on one side the other side was still ok. Still need a new, but s aved me a trip to the store!
