Check your ductwork. It could be that they need to be cleaned. Also look for lady bugs because they clearly smell like dust. J.

Can you wash the Roomba Cleaning Head Module


I have cleaned every part of my Roomba without any problems.

Over a year ago my dog had a serious case of the runs. Before we got home my Roomba i780 equipped with it's millions of dollars worth of R&D effectively spread said dog "business" evenly to every single square inch of hardwood floor and carpet in my house. It was quite a scene, and cost me a pair of $300 Ugs to get my girlfriend to clean it up.

Needless to say I took it completely apart and washed every single component. Actually I washed each component several times because the smell lingered.

While it says in the instructions not to use cleaning solutions on the components I can say that in my experience it did not cause any harm. Mine has been working for over a year since without issue.

I should add that prior to this happening I had cleaned the cleaning head module with fantastic many many times. I'm guessing yours is starting to accumulate that mm thick film of dirt. Just spray a paper towel with cleaning solution and slowly wipe it off. I have found putting a cloth over a screwdriver for "soft scraping" is good strategy.

Vacuum just quit, while in use


If the Power from the wall receptacle was OK, and you did not trip a circuit breaker, then the motor may have shut down or the on/off switch broke. Usually your house power would go out if a short circuit occurred while plugged into the house current. Check all wires, and smell the housing for any burn odor. Look at the brush for accumulated matter that collected and stopped the motor and brush from moving. Clean if necessary.

Kenmore canister - trips 15 amp circuit breaker


Check specs on unit and amperage. If it is less than 15 then the upstairs breaker is kicking off prematurely - Not uncommon event. If unit is drawing more power than specs there is excessive friction in motor bearings. Also check out brushes for good contact since they wear.

Blowing dust out even after cleaning filter


the bagless containers of these vacuums do tend to hold a strong dust odor. the only way ive found to help eliminate it is with a product that i use called FreshWave odor neutralizing pearls. you never want to use fine dust carpet freshener or any product like that cause it will eventually burn up your motor. but if you are interested give me a call and i can ship you some of the freshwave. 703-724-1112

I have a hoover mach 5 multi-chamber cyclonic vacum cleaner and it keeps getting hot and quitting.it's got a strong smell like something is burned when it gets hot also.


if its giving off that strong smell then the motor is bad. probably caused by not keeping the filters clean. on any bagless machine one has to clean the entire vacuum after almost every use to keep the unit operating correctly

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Bad Smell


change filters. the filter inside the unit and the one on the side needs to be changed once a yr. (these are not to be washed, only the side filter if foam can be washed ). also flat belt change every 6 months and the v-belt once a yr.

That is the problem with a bagless, but if you keep the filters clean it won't be quite as dusty.

Dusty smell
Posted by chekle on May 23, 2008
I buy loads of Hoovers and always same problem. When I Hoover its a dusty smell and it stays around bag not full and check filter the Hoover is ok f couple days then this happens.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum. It sounds to me that if you have a clean bag and filter, it sounds like you have dust in the motor section and it needs to be cleaned and or take a good blower and blow out the dirt or you may have a clog or dirt build up in the suction line and that might be causing the dusty smell. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call the Hoover factory and ask for tech support. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
