Check the hose and the dirt inlet by the brush roll for a clog. Check the brush roll to make sure it turns freely. Thermo protector by the motor may be bad.

Get the filter out of a dyson hoover dc 19 to clean it.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

To remove, wash, dry and replace your DC19's washable pre-filter, please follow the steps shown in our video guide. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.


Both of DC19's filters are engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. The post-filter does not need maintenance, and should not be washed or cleaned as this may damage the filter.

You're welcome to get in touch if you'd like further assistance or advice. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

I have a Hoover JA1600 001. The foot operated on/off switch will no longer turn the appliance on. I have cleaned all filters and waited for a couple of hours in case it was a thermal safety event but to no...


Thermal safety switch may be bad and not resetting. There is always a small filter somewhere that everyone misses and does not keep clean. Carpet Fresh will clog up filters pretty quick.

The air flow indicator on my hoover elite rewind bagless vacuum shows mostly yellow. we have followed all the directions in the manual - empty dirt cup, cleaned filter, checked two locations for blockage,...


Hi, sounds like you may have a small leak in the vacuum body. After changing the filter etc. turn machine on and run your hands alond vac. body. If there is a leak you will feel or hear it. If leak is found the light should change when you cover it. I hope this helps you./ Its hard to give advice without seeing it. Give it a try then let me know how you are doing. Chris

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean;...


It's not necessarily overheating, but the thermal-fuse is definitely tripping and it takes 30 minutes to reset. There are several causes of this (in most common order):

1. A blockage in the suction system or a full dust tank
2. Dirty filters (Don't forget to check the air outflow filter at the back)
3. A worn belt
4. A faulty thermal fuse.
5. A faulty motor

As you've stated that the dust tank is empty and the filters are clean (don't forget to check the HEPA / air outflow filter at the rear), let's look at the other options.

Check the suction is good by putting your hand over the end of the hose and seeing if it will stay attached to you hand upside down.

Next, check the belt isn't slipping. Lie the hoover on it's side and check the rollers are turning constantly and at high speed. This isn't foolproof as it doesn't account for the extra friction of the brushes on the carpet, but it's a reasonable test. A worn belt wont necessarily be cracked. It can stretch and slip without cracking. Also, when a belt is slipping, you can usually smell burning rubber.

If the hoover runs ok for 15 minutes and there is no burning smell from the motor, then it's more likely a faulty thermal fuse than the motor itself. They are replaceable but unfortunately, thermal fuses aren't always sold separately and sometimes you have to buy a new motor (!!) to get a new fuse. Hoover are one of the best manufacturers when it comes to buying spares, so you might be in luck.

I've removed faulty thermal fuses from vacuums because a spare wasn't available without buying a motor. However, I have always done this with the owners full consent after explaining to them that a safety feature has been removed and they should avoid using the vacuum for prolonged periods without letting it cool. I also test the rest of the vacuum fully before returning it.

If you want to try removing yours, it will be attached to the motor with simple spade connections, but you do this AT YOUR OWN RISK. The danger in doing this is that the motor will burn out if it gets too hot, rather than being switched off by the fuse.

Burning smell coming from vacuum


use a penny to turn the 2 screws on top a quater turn then fold down the vacuum and lift up the cover and you will have access to the belt. Clean the small hepa filter with soapy water. their may be 2 of them. The cannnister filters need to be shaken but not washed. Good luck.

Vacuum shuts off and has a burnt smell


Hi,
Try removing the drivebelt, and try running it to test like this. The brush bar will not turn, but it should function normally without smell at this point. If it doesn't, you may need a new motor as I think the brushes may have worn down - producing an electrical type burning smell.

If it runs fine without the belt attatched, then there is probably a build-up of hair or threads at each end of the roller stopping it turning freely. With the hoover off, check it turns freely and easily. A small metal nail file or similar is usually a good tool to clear it.

If the roller is stiff, the belt will not turn easily, and overheat on the motor spindle - causing the burning smell.

Overheating Hoover


Most likely caused by a lack of airflow. Check to see if you have airflow at the end of the hose. If not, Remove all of the hoses and ensure that they are not clogged. If there is airflow through the hose; check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll, inside the nozzle. This is a very common place for clogs to form.

Also note: contrary to some manufacturers claims, you can not clean (or wash, for that matter;) a hepa filter. The small particles are too embedded in the filter media to ever get completely removed, and the act of cleaning tends to damage the filters, even if you can't see the damage. This is why bagless life-spans, on average, are half the length of the life-spans of bagged vacuums.

Good luck,

Brushes not spinning or barely spinning while operating machine


There are filters, one on the lid, the other from the bottom, has a red frame, pull it out and clean it. There maybe a foam filter on the lid covering the yellow ball, it needs to have at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Also make sure that the lid is on correctly and tight.
