Hi,
No that should not be happening...there is a major problem inside your vacuum!! you need to stop using it and get it repaired. There is probably a wire rubbed through somewhere...this could give you a very bad shock if the right things happen together....
Or just get a new vacuum...

Do not use that vacuum!!

Why does my dirt devil max upright vacuum shock me? When im making laps, vacuuming.


if it is during vacuumming carpets it may be static electricity generated by the plastic head over the carpet
if it happening n hard surfaces , take it in for a safety check as there may be a loose wire touching metal and causing you the shock

Got a dyson dc14! Original. When hoovering i went to pick the wire up down by the bottom and got a shock. Is this just static? Is it normal? When using on carpets?


You stated you "went to pick the wire up down by the bottom and got a shock". If the wire was just a piece of wire that happened to be on your floor then you likely got a shock from static electricity. There should be no wires exposed on your vacuum so if the wire came from your vacuum that could be an electrical problem that could be very dangerous.

DC28 carpet buttons don't work


I don't know your model but i've seen vacuum hoses with wires embedded in the coils that can break and stop a switch from working. If it's the switch itself i disassemble it to rebuild it. Wires or harnesses are the most likely suspect. I would never change the circuit board unless a trace has burned, or an ic isn't working.

Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless problem with carpet hight adjustment


Hi There Alec from VacuumSpot here.
Most of these machines don't actually change the height until the handle is lowered so even though you change the dial when it is an upright position it is not until you lower the handle that the height is actually selected. Assuming that you are aware of this and it is still not adjusting I would suspect you have a small arm or lever broken. It is very rare for a height selector to simply fall out of place.The job would take 5 minutes in my opinion so it is simple but a bit fiddly.

the belt that drives the beater bar may have broken. If you noticed a burned rubber smell it was the belt and you can find the part number in your book that came with your machine.

I received a NEW dyson ball vacuum for Christmas. I have noticed when I vacuum with it that dirt collects all over the ball and the vacuum beater head. Is this normal. I have had the regular upright...


This may sound silly, but it sounds like that you a have static electricity problem. If the dust is collecting on top (outside of the brush head that is probably the static attracting it. This is common during the colder months. You know how during these months when you walk across carpet and then just someone or a metal objest, you get a shock.
You might try lightly spraying a little "static guard" on the top of the brush head before using it, or using a carpet dusting product that smells good, and may reduce the static.
