Round filter clogs often

Is it normal to have to clean the round filter that sits under the cylclone about everytime that I use it? It seems to clog with very fine dust and really limits the suction.

    I have been having the same problem. My filter gets so clogged with dog hair and fine dust that it doesnt work as well. I clean my filter every time I use the vacuum. Did anyone ever figure out info about the flange, does that part keep the filter from clogging so quickly and where do we get a new one.

The Flange in question is about one inch tall and and approx 4 inches circular ..... When you pull the canister (container to empty) off and empty the contents in the trash .... some of us tap it to get the excess out or off the sides ..... That Flange is the rubber piece attached to the bottom of the darker gray cylinder inside the canister you are emptying. When you tap the canister or after dumping it numerous times that flange can work itself (slide) up the darker gray cylinder ...... it needs to be slid downward and overlap the bottom when you close the canister from dumping it. You can remove the flange and see the grooves .... replace it back on with it hanging off a little to allow for overlap. That should decrease the amount of excess being trapped in the filter. Hope this helps.

Riccar 8995 no suction


I think you mean it's an 8955, Riccar has not had a 8995 model. If there is no suction in the hose it has to have something clogging it. Open the little round opening on the back of the vacuum where the hose attaches to see if you have suction there.

Hi...everytime I turn on my vacuum it blows out a bunch of dirt/dust...the belt seems to be intact...what can the problem be? Is it something i can fix myself possibly?


This is most likely a clogged inlet, clogged hose, or a clogged filter. Just need to inspect it thoroughly and give it a good cleaning.

More info, let me know.

My Hoover wind tunnel keeps overheating and the red I dictator is on. I have cleaned all filters and checked for clogs....could the motor have dust in it? How do I check?


Okay. I read these posts and decided to take the advice of checking the hose.
I had cleaned all filters, checked all hose (as-is) and did belt checks, etc.
The indicator was always showing red and it would shut down after about 5 minutes.
It ended up being a clog that I discovered after taking the hose completely off and seeing a clump right where the hose detaches. I began swinging the hose round and round and sure enough, more cat hair clumpls shot out. Big clumps.
So, you literally need to check every inch of hose to find the culprit.
After that, my indicator stayed green and it works like a charm.
Best wishes, Mike D

IRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum dirt not going into the fliter basket


You can try rinsing the tank very thoroughly with warm water. Be very sure that you rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank (one round, two oval, one curved like Scooba's filter) very thoroughly, because all the dirt and dirty water moves through those openings and can clog things up.

Bissell Lift-Off Revolution keeps clogging


Sounds like it is partially clogged. That yellow thing you are talking about, twist it and it should come out, clean or replace the filters, then re-install it. Check the hose and make sure there isn't a clog in it and clean any other filter. One problem with this bagless is the filters will clog up fast and need to be cleaned on a regular basis. Another place a clog happens is in the inlet by the brush roll.

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction


Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

Bissell vaccum problem


Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.

Have a hoover steam cleaner F5837-900 model


First off, check the dirty water tank, check the round filter on the bottom of the lid to make sure there is a gap and pushed all of the way up, then make sure that the lid is locked onto the tank. Check the bottom of the tank, push in the plunge to make sure water comes out freely. There is a round seal where the water tank sits, make sure it is ok. There is a diapham that the tank sits on could be bad, or the tube running down the inside of the handle is crimped. Could have a bad pump. but they don't go bad very often.
