If there's no suction, you should first check the User Manual for how to clear blockages (this is the most common suction-loss problem). If you're certain there are no blockages, the machine is still within its warranty period so you should return it to the place where you bought it.

Motor makes loud growling noise, no suction on model 270 i Miele canister style vacuum


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Unfortunately that normally means the motor has shot its bearings and/or its carbon brushes. I think it is time to purchase a new one. On the bright side there are some rreally great vacuums out there! If you want any help choosing a new machine send me a message. Happy Vacuuming :)

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space...


Hi there SmartAlec from Nelsonvacuums.com.au here.It sounds like a blockage of some kind. The best way to find it is to set the machine up for normal vacuuming and remove one component at a time until the suction returns. eg turn on and feel suction under floor head - not good? then remove the rod, then the hose.
Once at the machine on its own it gets a little triky as i don't know which model you have. However if you have a bagged model remove all the filters and the bag and retest. There will be at least 2 filters, one before the motor and one after (maybe under the vacuum or right at the back). If it is a bagless model even though the filter may look clean it is probably blocked with very fine dust. If suction returns when the filter is removed then you need to buy a new filter. I am a nilfisk vacuum cleaner agent so i can supply a filter for you.
If this still doesnt help you are welcome to call me if you live in australia my contact details are on my website www.nelsonvacuums.com.au.
Hope this helps !.
Happy vacuuming :)

NO SUCTION AND CLEANING LIGHT IS NOT WORKING


You have a dirty filter somewhere. Ignore the fact that the light hasn't come on because it is probably burned out. Check the bag and any filter areas for blockages - they are there. Take the hoses off, stretch them out and run a broom handle through them to check for problems there.

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA)
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough (not loads) of suction till it reaches the cleaning head. The head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all.
It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off.
is it fixable or is it dead?
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.
