    Still won't extract. The solutions goes onto the carpeting just fine but nothing is sucking up into the clear part on the front or into the reservoir. I also took apart as much as I could but feel there must be something else to check. The appliance is not very old. It worked fine the first time, but the last two times I used it, I just had to let the rug dry on its own. Is there some way to get the plastic cover off where the solution is supposed to run up the front into the reservoir. Thanks..

I assume you are talking about no spray. Check the rod inside the handle, amke sure it is moving up and down when you squeeze the trigger, If it is, is water coming out the bottom of the tank when you push in the valve, if it does, then the reservior asm. ( the tank sits on it) maybe bad and will have to be replaced. If yours has a foam filter on the lid of the dirty water tank, make sure there is a 1/4 or so gap from the top of the filter to the top of the tank lid.

I have an Eureka Altima Model 2961AVZ vacuum that suddenly stopped picking up. I have taken it apart, checked the belt which was fine, replaced the hepa filter, and checked for clogs in all the hoses


Is the beater bar actually turning when the power is turned on? Sometimes the belt is fine, but something is jammed and keeping the beater bar from turning. What about the section behind the beater bar, but before the hose upright. I've found large pieces of paper jammed in here and then hair gets caught, ultimately blocking the whole system. Usually you have to turn it over, remove some screws and disconnect the belt and beater bar to get underneath. Just reassemble it in the reverse order to how you took it apart. Double check the hoses and run a "unwound" metal coat hanger through to unclog anything. Does the vacuum " suck" with the hose or tube up to it disconnected? If not you may have a motor that somehow got junk pulled into it. You can open this up as well and clean this out. Of course unplug it all before doing anything.

My dyson dc18 loosing suction , took apart and didnt find any obstructions


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

A loss of performance is normally attributed to a blockage or a dirty filter. Please ensure you follow the full blockage procedure outlined in your user guide or in the Support sectino on our website at www.dyson.com.

You will also find information here on checking the cleaner head to ensure the brush bar is turning and instructions on how to wash the pre filter.

I hope that this information is useful to you and should you need any further help or advice, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

My wertheim 6030 is overheating I have changed the bag and filter even though there was no indication this was needed now it wont turn back on


Have you removed the bottom of the vac to be sure there is no obstructions? Check the intake area for an obstruction. Also look around the motor for vents. Are they clear? Most new vacs have a reset button. This will typically reset the motor. If none of this helps try reinstalling the filter and bag. I am not familiar with this model but most of this should apply.

The hand-held wand wont slide back into the tube. It wont go down far enough to click in and become the handle again. It was working fine but all of the sudden won't fit back in.


sounds like the tube has something inside of it that is obstructing the path. veriffy the the "female" end of the tube isnt obstructed, and also, make sure that nothing is bent ( which can happen easily). use a flashlight to shine down into the tubes and check everything out. you shouldnt need to use a lot of pressure when trying to make the tubes fit. if it doesnt fit, dont force it, basically.....try turning the tube too, and that should work.

Belt wont turn makes a loud noise when put on carpet setting


If this is a Dyson with a protected belt that can't be replaced then it will have to be sent out to Dyson or get a Dyson servicepersonnel to check it over - protected belt motors are difficult to fix by yourself. If its clicking all the time, then it means the belt has to be replaced. In the mean time check that there are no obstructions on the beater bar and behind it and also check that the brush stop roller at the top of the hood is in the right position. It should move automatically when the handle is swung down in normal operation.

Brushes wont turn on shampooer


Dear Momneville
I have the same steamcleaner and had the same problem, I took mine apart a found a clog between the turbine and the wheel that the turbine moves by vacuum when it gets glogged there is no vacuum to move the wheel. If you are not mechanically inclined in suggest you do not take it apart unless you think you can get it back together properly.

Hope this helps
