How to install the back hepa filter on canister vacuum cleaner. We are not sure which direction the air flows and therefore which way the arrows should point. Should the arrows point into the vacuum cleaner or point towards the outside?

The arrows in this case should point out of the machine. not into the machine. This is because you want the black rubber seal to seal on the machine and force the air through the filter.

Good luck.

Vacuum hepa gets hot


Carol,
Have you checked to make sure that all of the filters have been cleaned so that you have good air flow? The HEPA filter is your final exhaust filter and if your motor is getting hot because of poor air flow, it will cause the HEPA filter to get hot as well. Hope this helps!

How do i replace the hepa filter on a dyson dc18? I removed it and now I cannot put it back on.


It is very simple to change the filter and re-attach the canister. Once you have removed the main canister (the one that has the washable filter) you should see the plastic canister, which houses the Hepa Filter. 1) To make life easy, turn your vacuum around, so you are now looking at the back (where the hose and wand are). 2) Remove the hose and wand as you normally would, if you were going to use them. Just lay it on the floor. 3) Now that they are out of the way, you should see the grey plastic holder, towards the bottom (approx 6 inches above the red release peddle for the vacuum. It is attached to the vacuum with only 2 Phillips-Head screws, and was used to keep the hose in place. 4) Use a screwdriver to remove the screws (one one each side). Once it's removed you should easily beagle to change the Hepa Filter. NOTE: Pay attention to where the 4 inverted latches on the canister are, and pay special attention to the fact that there is an extra latch on the canister, which faces the opposite direction of the others. It is this latch on the canister, which must be located through the back handle of the vacuum, since this was the main latch that was secured by the grey hose piece, which you first removed. 5) To reassemble the canister, line up the clips,especially the one that I just mentioned, and make sure the canister is flush against the base. 6) Now, reattach the hose securing piece that you originally removed, and the Hepa Filter and plastic canister should now be fully secured. 7) Place the hose and wand back into their original position and you should now be ready to vacuum. I hope this was helpful. S.I. Educator

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

Kenmore canister vacuum will not turn on


No, the only effect of not cleaning them would be decreased air flow and consequently . The time between changing filters depends on how much the vacuum cleaner is used. Common failures are damaged cords and a damaged or failed power switch

Shuts off after a minute or so and comes back on and shuts down in 20 seconds


Sounds like it is over heating do to a dirty filter. Or there is something blocking the air flow in the vacuum.

The dirt is going into the filter


As the air gets sucked through the vacuum cleaner, the dirt is basically thrown out into the container by the spinning air. If the speed that the air is travelling through gets too low, this stops happening and instead it gets sucked through into the filters.

There could be a number of reasons that the air flow has slowed. The most likely is the filters have become blocked over time. Even with regular washing, after 5 years they will not be as efficient as when they were new. I would suggest replacing them (the foam filter and HEPA filter if you have one.)

I would also check that there are no blockages in the main hose, and also give all the component a good banging/brushing to make sure they are nice and clean.

hope this helps,

Matt
