    I cant't get a consistent **** and roller from the switch - needs a new switch but from your website it suggests a new handle.

    I have had it since Aug 2006 but don't know when it was made exactly

    How much would all this cost, and can I make the replacement myself as the labour seems to be the most expensive

You didn't say what the model is, but sounds like you need a new switch. But if less then one year old, then it is still under warranty, take it in for warranty rerpair.

Once vacuum is turned on and switched to a certain carpet level, the red light begins to flash and the brush stops spinning. How do we fix this?


Hi there,

The brushbar is designed to stop rotating if you've set it at a level too low for the pile of the carpet you're trying to clean. The indicator light will flash to warn you of this. Using the cleaner with the brushbar raised to the next level on the selector pad should prevent this issue from occurring.

If you have any further concerns about your vacuum, please get in touch with us directly on 1866MYDYSON. One of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

Jack

Sebo Vacuum runs intermittently and keeps cutting out and restarting


There could be numerous reasons for this. What I would try in this order to help troubleshoot is this:

1. If you wiggle the power cord near where it inserts into the vacuum cleaner itself, does the vacuum turn on and off constantly? If so, you have a damaged cord or loose connections that need to be fixed.
2. Has the bag been emptied, and if the vacuum has a filter element, has this been cleaned? Vacuums may cutout if they get too hot. A vacuum can overheat if either the bag is full, the filter is blocked, or there are other obstructions to airflow, which cause the motor to work harder and draw more voltage, resulting in more heat. It may have a thermal cutoff which is tripping constantly. Solution is to ensure bag is not full, or less than 3/4 full, any air filters are cleaned and check for any other obstructions in the air flow paths.
3. Ensure the power supply is adequate for the vacuum. Try running it without long extension cords if you have been using those.
4. Check and clean the switch. Sticky or dust contacts on switches can cause variable cycling (cutting out and restarting).

Hope that helps!

How do i use my bissell 7920


The 7920 is a great little carpet shampooing vacuum. Look up manual information for detailed assembly and starting/breakdown procedures. Make certain that the carpet/floor has been vacuumed previous to cleaning with the shampooer! The small nozzle opening will get clogged with as little as a toothpick or cheerio! Step on the rear release arm pedal and drop the handle down to the floor, Pull up on the resevoir bucket handle and place the handle of the resevoir back down to open the top of the tank and fill the bladder with hot water. Replace bucket top and place bucket back into vacuum. Raise the handle until it clicks into place. Fill on board soap/shampoo dispenser by lifting out of chamber on unit and fill with appropriate Bissell or upright shanpoo cleaner. Replace unit and make certain the top is tight. Plug unit in and turn on both vaccuum switch and preheat water switch and wait approx. 2 minutes to get water hot enough to proceed with cleaning. Start by rollling cleaner onto carpet and engage trigger approx 2-3' pathway away from you and then release trigger and draw vacuum /shamppoooer back over wetted area, repeat without using water again unless heavier traffic area. Do not over wet area draw unit back and forth a few times until water runs clear thru the front clear window. Proceed to make another path along side cleaned area and so on.
Once you hear the water run out or you have finished cleaning an area then shut of heater and vacuum. release handle with foot pedal release and lift out bucket and pour out dirty water and rinse area/tank /resevoir etc. You should also clean the small red filter in the resevoir of any debris by popping out and replacing. Also, there is an onboard filter under the clear window (where spinner is located) . unscrew clear top , take out spinner device and pull out small plastic screen and rinse or blowout. Clean also the front clear cover if there is debris, by rinsing off with sprayer or wiping clean. You may also find that you have to take off the clear plastic hood window, by unscrewing two screws on either side of nozzle opening (top ) and rinse out as well. Do not, get water under unit into motor area. Place unit upright and in a warm place.. Do not let freeze if in climate that is known to freeze. Good luck cleaning!!

Carpet/Floor Switch problem on Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum


Well, you have to deal with it, you have to play with this electrical things if you want to fix this problems.

The good news is, the sources of the problems is the switch already broken.The first things before you do anything is, find this switch on the market first to changes the old ones.Then, remove the power cord from the outlet of course.

After have it, then you must open the old switch, and remove it from the unit by cutting the cables using cutter/ pliers or anything.But remember, you must remember the locations of each cable that been cut, you can use Camera Cellphone to make sure of it if you like.

Then put the cables back together with the new switch, after all done, clean all the mess and try operate it.

Hope it works!!!

Vacuum turns itself off or won't turn on


Sounds like a bad on/off switch or a loose connection somewhere in the vacuum. If you can remove the switch, you can see if any connections are loose. The switch itself can be checked if taken out of the circuit and tested with a meter or a continuity light.

Otherwise, you might want to consider a repair shop.
