Shark navigator freestyle just stopped picking up


Usually when a vacuum stops picking up it is because the brush roll isn't spinning or isn't spinning fast enough when vacuuming. It may spin fast when you look at it but not when you put it on the carpet. It takes a good tight belt and a good brushroll to vacuum properly.

Bissell proheat cleanshot 2x won't stop putting out cleaner and water, the little dial won't stop spinning


First clean the Flow Indicator filter. Turn the Flow indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it. Lift the rotor and the filter under it out. Clean the filter and reinstall in reverse order. Make sure you have unplugged the unit before working on it. Then clean the lint filter on the heat tank cap (it looks like a screen) and reinstall it. There's not much more to these so if that doesn't work call the Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691

Every so often I get a smell of burning from my g4 Kirby vacuum. I noticed it's when I'm vacuuming a fairly new rug on this house I clean. Should I be concerned?


If it is a smell of burning rubber - most likely your vacuum belt is overdue for replacement.

At this point - remove the brush roller, remove the old belt, clean off your brush roller and remove any string or hair that may be bound up around it (usually around where the belt goes or on the sides), and put on a new belt. Your Kirby should act good as new if your bag is replaced at the same time.

If the brush roller has too much string and hair wrapped around it, many times the brush roller will not spin as fast as the belt is driving it and you will get that burning smell.

Kirby G4 stopped working


maybe the impeller broke, that is the most common reason for '' loud noise''....then you must remember that the kiby will not switch on [ all G models ] if the bag and the front nozzle is not properly attached.....

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting.
