Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

There is an "exhaust" pipe of sorts in the lower back part of the vaccuum. Most of the dust and specially pet hair just flies out of there and up in the air. It looks like more stuff comes out than stays in the vaccuum. I'm wondering if there should be something connected to that pipe? Vacuum assembled as per instructions out of the box (installing handle).

    We have carpet so power setting is on high
    Lots of pet hair is the most visible thing flying up, but a lot of dust too. It all sticks to the vacuum due to the static electricity generated by the warm air moving. Please let me know if you need any more info I'm at a loss here. None of the accessories that came in the box will fit that opening either.

    This machine sounds new ... I am not familiar with this model ... maybe you should contact the vendor? Im sure it should not operate in this manner ...

    Thanks for the feedback.

Hello this vacuum cleaner has great suction through the hose but not in the main part, it will not pick up i have cheked to see if it is blocked but does not appear to be. any ideas?


If it sucks through the hose it must have a blockage in the pipe or at the head. Remove head and check for hairs and thread which often cause dust to collect there in a knot. Clean the brushes. You should be able to see daylight at the end of the pipe. Put your fingers in the part of the head that goes onto the pipe and feel for a blockage. Or push a thin wire through.

My Bissell will not **** up pet hair or dirt


Hello,
Dirt hair and such will build up in the hoses of that vacum. Take them apart stretch them out and run something through them to make sure they are clean.
The other problem is the filter in the bottom of the cup. At least on some models there is a filter that gets totally pligged with dirt and dust. Take it apart, wash it out and them put everything back together.

When vacuuming hardwood floor, hair gathers on brush and never sucks into vacuum. I spend most of my time cleaning off brushes. How do I clean hardwood floor with dog hairs.


1. Broom and dust pan, then mop
2. Wet dry vac with wide non-brush attachment
3. Here's a link to a vacuum professing to clean pet hairs well

http://www.evvive.com/shop-by-brand/miele-open-box-canister-vacuums/miele-s516-cat-dog-vacuum_2

4. Try to find a wide attachment for the hose that has no brush, maybe something from a wet dry vac.

5. Take your dog outside and brush every day. It helps, but no matter what you do, you will have pet hair if you have an indoor pet.

6. Go to the source. See if your dog will be vacuumed. Half serious on this one.


Good luck!

Vacuum blows out dust/pet hair etc. when in use


try replacing the belt if you havent. it almost sounds like your getting weak aggitation. if thats not bad, check for a clog in the brushroll housing nozzle right on the inside by the tube. Replace the inside hepa filter if you havent within the last 3 months.

Vacuum doesn't vaccum!


Sounds like there is a clog near where the hose conects to the lower brush part.. Try to look up in there.. Under the brush there should be an opening that goes into the hose.. There might be a clog there..

You need to clean your roller and replace the clutch assembly that drives the belts. poorly designed vacuum with many flaws.

Brush won't turn while sweeping


Does it smell like anythings burning if it's on for a while?

It could be that the belt is just stretched out and not keeping enough tension on the brush while its on the carpet. Once you tilt the vacuum up, there's no more friction, so it spins freely. I've had a few that did that.

Lift-Off Pet Hair vacuum doesn't lift off pet hair!


very light "stuff" like dog hair will get stuck to the filter since that is where the suction goes. it's primary purpose was to keep dust out of the motor. This is a problem with many "bagless" cleaners. A bagged cleaner keeps all dirt and hair away from filters by utilizing the bag as primary filter. If you have alot of dog hair then this may have been the incorrect choice of a vac. all you can do is brush off the filter each time you use the vac. it will still pick up o.k. even when there is hair on the filter unless you leave it on day after day.
