Question about Kenmore Quick Clean 30012 Vacuum

1 Answer

The vacuum picks up dust, dog hair, etc. but then spits it back out when I turn it off. I have taken apart the cylinder in front to empty it and remove any clogs, but that hasn't fixed the problem. I am very frustrated.

The problem is in the hose. Take the hose off and take a broom handle and stick it down the hose. There is something caught in the hose I bet!

    You may need to take the bottom of the vacuum apart to see if there is something stuck up inside. There has to be a blockage somewhere. When you remove the hose does the hose have vacuum on it? If so then it is in the lower part of the vacuum. Sometimes they get plugged up below where the hose attaches in the lower part of the vacuum.

My floor brush is not turning or picking up dog hair/dust, I took it apart and cleaned


Be sure to install a new belt, belts lose elasticity and need replaced once or twice per year.

The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

Dyson dc59 troubleshooting


Have you checked the rotary brush at the front. Although IO dont have the same model of dyson I need to clean out the dog hairs that get wrapped around the main rotary brush which is easily got to by turning the catches with a coin under the cleaning head. They should have a little arrow or padlock symbol showing which way to turn them

Check to see if your brush is not worn down, they do wear with age - compare the length of the bristles with a new one. Replace the brush ir there is a significant difference in bristle lengths. Also check the flexible bend where the pick-up head joins onto the upright section for blockages and fluff.

My wind tunnel had a lot of dog hair at the intake hole from my renter that used it. I was able to remove it, but is it possible there is hair up inside beyond the hole & how would I remove it? it is...


I have an upright Dyson Cyclonic.  Because I have dogs, I also have a Miele Pull-along.  I use the cyclonic for fine dust after picking up the hairs with the Miele.  

Much quicker in the long run.  

Otherwise I would waste a lot of time cleaning out the Dysan Cyclonic airways.  I usually use long nose pliers to get the ball out and then I use my Miele to **** the rest out of the Dysans airways!!!
