My QL60 just stopped sucking. The motor and fan run fine.


If the fan is running there has to be suction. If there is none it is because the air in entering via some other port and bypassing the normal intake. Check it out. Check hoses and fittings.

Sucked up some debris with Kirby, now the motor is not running right.


1) see the diagram attached.
2) clean it
3) test the belt for broken or crack
4) motor can be faulty by enough pressure in the bearing and winding overheating repair or replace.

Dirty water is leaking back out


After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

Water was sucked into Miele Vacuum


the motor is shot.they cant handle water. you are looking at a very expensive repair. miele parts are about the most expensive around. next time look at a panasonic, or riccar. or for a lifetime vac, look at the Metropolitan, made in the USA(around $400)

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
No…. I would advise NOT running the machine without the filter because you will burn up the motor. You can use a paper bag with a rubber band to slide over the motor to protect it from dust and also if you have a foam type filter – you can put the foam filter on first, then the paper bag then the rubber band, or if you have a cartridge filter you can run it with just the cartridge filter bur would suggest cleaning the cartridge filter after each use – also you can place the paper bag method over the cartridge filter as well or call the Delonghi factory and order the part or they will direct you to a local dealer, Info listed below:

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
