Hoover troubleshooting


Hello! The umbrella tube is a stationary part, it does not rotate. The dirt that enters in the dirt cup spins around the umbrella tube. If no dirt is entering into the dirt cup this can mean there is a blockage either in your hoses and/or your filters. Try these quick trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose. Hope this helps!

How to clean filters


Most of the Dyson have a filter inside the canister where the dirt goes or under it---it is critical for safe operation--if it gets really blocked the motor will overheat and the thermal cutoff will kill all power to the unit.

It is a white foam type and instructions for washing are right on the ring it inserts into. Wash with water and mild soap (I use dish soap).

I suggest doing in the sink and expect the water to run black for a while----it must be allowed to dry completely and do not use a air compressor to do this.

The foam type filters are washable, I am not aware of another filter in this unit but check the owner manual anyway.

The filter will not "look" real dirty but when you run water thru it you will now know.

Shark uv208 turning off


Ok, it has a thermal breaker built into it to protect the motor from burning up.

9 out of 10 times it means either a blockage or even the main air filter is blocked--if filter blocked the motor overheats so.....

Locate the filter and if foam it will be washable--did one recently with this issue in another brand--instructions right where the filter is indicate to wash in sink etc and water ran black for several minutes, hope this helps.

Was vacuuming ,it jusy quite no power!


I have seen this before--there is a thermal (heat) breaker in most expensive units---

Look carefully at the air filter to see it is not blocked, one here we looked and it seemed ok but it was washable and when put under the tap in the sink the water ran Black for several minutes, follow instructions on the filter or the manual in this case and wash it if it is washable (paper ones have to be replaced) and let it dry completely.

The way I knew it was blocked was with compressed air not moving free thru it .

It must be completely dry before you try to use---no airflow here will over heat the motor and trigger the internal breaker which monitors current and temperatures.

Theres water pouring out of my t fal iron's little holes when I begin to iron my shirt...why!


The iron needs to be cleaned as I have just discovered myself. I have a hinari and the instructions are as follows. Fill the water tank and turn the iron on to medium. When heated press the steam button and hold it over the sink or a container so that the water can run out of it. It will take sediments with it. The cleaning of the iron should be carried out once a month.

I experienced the same trouble and carried out the instructions and all is well again.

Water isn't coming out either way


Hello, This can be one of two things. First, remove the clean water tank. Fill the tank with water. Hold it over the sink and press a pen or something pointy into the center of the black nozzle on the bottom of the tank ...water should come out. If it doesnt, its clogged, if it does, carefully place the tank into position on the spot bot...no press it firmly into place and look inside the tank...if seated properly, little bubbles will rise from the bottom of the tank where that nozzle is. If all of this works...turn on the machine and try it. If you still have no liquid coming out of the hose or brush area, your pump is bad. This is something you can do yourself. the part is around 19 dollars. Here's where to find it... http://www.svcvacuum.com/bissell/203-6659.asp?source=BI-203-6659

Where did you buy this unit from? Go back there and ask if they have filters for yours. Otherwise look in the Yellow Pages for vacume cleaner repair shops. Sometimes they have all kinds of filters for all kinds of vacumes. You can try places like Wal Mart. What you want to look for are filters that will work with your unit. The foam filter you refer to is called a pre-filter. It traps the bigger particles so they won't damage your paper filter or clog it up especially if it's wet stuff you're picking up. You can remove that foam filter and gently wash it out in the sink with a mild dishwashing liquid and warm water. And even sometimes if you have time you can wash a paper filter out by hosing it out from the inside, with just a gently rinsing on the outside. Don't use any solvents on it just soap and water. And don't use high pressure either, as it will destroy the paper. I have cleaned my paper filters several times before I finally had to replace them. You can also look at places like Lowe's. They carry shop vacs and a whole assortment of attachments as well.

E2 Rainbow vacuum motor protector


Some possible ideas:
Make sure the cone shaped air impeller does not have hair/thread/fibers wrapped around it. This will cause the motor to work harder, and trip the protector.
Make sure you are not overfilling the vacuum with water. If the water is touching the impeller, that will also cause it to move slower, and trip the protector.
Other than that, i'd have to examine it.
Hope that helps!

Bissel Vaccum giving a foul odour


Hi - here are a few tips!
If the filters are washable they have to be dried completely before putting back into the machine, otherwise you're damaging your vacuum by putting in damp filters which won't do much but put back the stale smell into the home. Generally washing filters should be done with a little washing up liquid, washed out, rinsed, drip dry and dried over 24 hours to room temperature naturally (not on a radiator or heater).
Faster drying should employ the use of a low temperature tumble dryer with the filters placed in a pillow case with a towel added to prevent banging off the sides of the electric dryer when in operation.
Also, whilst the filters are drying take off the main hose of the Clearview and wash it out with washing powder with the hose laid in the bath. Alternatively put wet wipes or cleaning wet wipes down the hose with a stick to get out all matter of dirt - clearview hoses are the worst for stinking especially if you have pets. That should improve the general way of your vacuum and giving it a more neutral smell. Also when everything is dried out inclduing the hose, sprinkle some bicarbonate of soda around so that the vacuum picks it up and neutralises previous odours that the vacuum had from the beater bar/floor head.
