Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22612 Bagged Canister Vacuum. It sound sot be that it could be your electrical hose be have a short in it or your carbon brushes needs cleaning or replacement or the worst problem is that it could be your motor, fields or armature. Most motors can be rebuilt but I would check the simpler things 1st B4 you try to rebuilt or replace the motor.

I am not sure if Sears / Kenmore can download the owner’s manual from the website but I would suggest that you call the Sears / Kenmore Factory to have them send out a copy of the owners manual so that you can do it yourself or if that is not the way you want to do it contact your local vac dealer and they can help or call the factory for further assistance. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Subject: Eureka Tru Hepa Wirlwind Amps Model 4383. Working fine then just stopped. Later worked fine again? What is/was the problem? Does it need a new filter?? also has the # 0108017529 on machine


I'm not sure all machines are the same, but many have thermal overloads on the motor that can only be reset upon cooling, so wait 30 minutes and try again.
Secondly, my vac has 3 filters, one in the dust tray that you empty, one under where that dust collector installs and the HEPA filter on the back.
Ensure that all three are cleaned.

BB1100BdD stops after a few minutes operation. After an hr or so will run again for a few minutes


The motor is overheating and control features cause it to shut off to prevent burning it out. First check the bag. If it is full, remove and replace with a new one. A full bag can cause the motor to work harder, and thereby overheat. Next check the filters. A dusty filter will keep air from cooling the motor and again cause overheating. The HEPA filter needs to be checked also. Most filters can be dusted off. Some can be washed, air-dried, and replaced.Others will need to be removed and replaced. Your owner's manual should tell you how to clean filters. I hope this helps. If it solves your problem, please let Fixya know and post a rating for my solution.

Brush works intermittedly - I've looked at the common solutions listed but none seem to work...shaking it & reseating the canister will get it working again sometimes but obviously that doesn't seem to...


I just had the same problem. I would turn on the vac, and it worked fine. When I turned on the brush it would work for a few seconds then shut off. Through troubleshooting I found out it had nothing to do with a bad power connection. By chance I took off the side HEPA filter to see how it looked. I realized that I have never changed it and that it was filthy. I removed it and turned on the vac, then the brush. It took a few tried, but the brush motor got back to full strength. I reassembled everything and it works fine now. It seems that the clogged filter was causing the brush motor to shut off. I'm running my vac w/o the HEPA filter while i wait for a new one to ship. Hope its the same prob for you!

Keeps shutting off


You cant clean the HEPA filter.. only the blue washable pre filter.

Sounds like the motor is dead or atleast on its way out.

If you visit http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/ they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

Bosch BSA2222UC canister vacuum shuts off after 5 minutes


You have a plugged vacuum indicator port. There will be a tiny hole somewhere near the hose inlet. Just clean it with a dry toothbrush. This will allow the vacuum pressure to equalize on either side of the shut off switch.

WindTunnel HEPA Filter won't spin


I just fixed my HEPA filter not rotating!!

It involves taking apart the vacuum HEPA area. All screws are the same size. There are a LOT of 'em. Really straightforward putting it back together too.

ok, once you take the HEPA canister area off the vacuum, careful with the wires! Unplug them from the controller board. You open up the HEPA chamber by removing more screws until you see where the motor that turns the filter is mounted on the side. Remove motor from the green chamber. Note where the washer goes. Once the motor is off, you'll see that the center hub that drives the HEPA filter is rounded out. What I did was jam little bits of aluminum from a pop can into the space between the circle and the square to force the walls back to square. I started by folding a little piece of aluminum over and over so it was about three layers thick. Jammed that in. That wasn't quite enough thickness so I shoved another piece with it. If you can find something that is about 4 times the thickness of a pop can aluminum, that'd probably work too. Slight wedge shape on the tip would help. Any sort of tiny shim.

To test your work, just put a couple of holder screws into the HEPA cannister housing, plug in the cover/switch, plug in the HEPA moter. Turn it on for a few seconds to make sure the filter turns. Then you can add more thickness to the hub or put things back together.

Motor stops running after a few minutes


One thing you could have a bad motor control, part #05408630, mounted by the motor, the other could be a bad variable speed control, part #05412914, it is on top near the back.

Hoover u5720-900 quits running and restarts again after some time


There is one more filter under where the collection tank & Hepa filter sits -- there is one screw that holds the cover down - remove that filter and clean it that will help. I also find I need to vacuum the hepa filter as well- it is too expensive to replace all the time. The Hepa filter can be placed inside a plastic bag and shaken really good to get the dust off of it
