I have a Samsung 4320 vacuum cleaner which has started making a loud blowing noise as if the hose is split. I can't find a split in the hose and it isn't blocked. Also it isn't picking up very well. ...


Most vacuums have an air duct on the hose to adjust the amount of suction. If this becomes opened, you will hear the sound you've described and the suction will lessen. Check the wand and the hose and see if you notice a sliding piece that can be moved to enlarge or decrease an opening in the wand or hose. Use this to close the opening and your machine should work as it's supposed to.
Hope this helps and good luck!

When vacuuming, dirt goes directly into canister not through filter help!!


The purpose of the filter is to prevent dirt from getting to the motor. The dirt is supposed to go into the canister.

How do I open the canister of the Aerus Electrolux Lux Guardian? I need to replace the retractable cord mechanism. Aerus won't help me.


Hi there,

This will not be difficult to open, however, inside may scare you.

Remove your hepa filter cartridge (if you have one)
turn the machine over.
Undo the 6-8 screws there and pull the bottom off.
you should see everything there. If you are careful, just remove the old rewinder, and replace with the new one.

Good luck.
Mark

The brush attachment always slows when it hits carpet. I've replaced belts and it just doesn't do what its supposed to. I doesn't seem to work very well. If the brush isn't moving how could it move the...


One thing you might want to try is to see if the brush itself is binding up at the ends. When dirt gets in the end pieces and makes the brush difficult to spin, it will slow down, add to that the contact with the carpet and it may slow down even more. Give the brush and axle a good cleaning to see if it works better. Add a bit of WD40 to the ends of the brush axle.

I have a hoover windtunnel bagless that the filter fell out of on accident when I was trying to dump it and I can't figure out how to put it back in


Hi, You don't say which model windtunnel you have but most are the same. The canister is in two sections with a Hoover emblem to the right of the handle. this is the side the filter goes on. The bracket slides out and holds the round filter, the round filter snaps into the bracket so that the end of the filter with the opening goes down to fit the hole in the bottom of the canister. When putting the canister back in the vacuum be sure the top goes back flat on the canister and the locking lever is open all the way. You have to slide the canister back in level and then it will drop down into position you can't tilt it. now you can lock it. Good Luck!

We just moved and the movers didn't pack my Miele vacuum, they simply transported it as is. Now the piece that is supposed to interlock from the hose into the canister seems to be missing. Can you tell me how to get a replacement piece?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. If you still have your owner’s manual then you can contact the Miele Factory cust serv and they can direct you to the parts dept and if you check your owner’s manual it may give you the part # on the schematic of what you need. Also, you can check with the local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

Remove connectors off hose


Are you talking about the hose cuffs? If so, put the cuff in a vise and squeeze it until you see the locking tabs and using flat blades, pry the hose out from the cuff.

Problem with motor; need to open the motor compartment


The top piece near the back comes off, use a screw driver to pry the corners out then it will come off. Then you can get to the 2 screws holding the motor housing off. When you put it back on, it just snaps in place.
