SOURCE: Upper Filter gets clogged quickly

You may have to replace the filters, air maybe restricted going thru them. The main filter is part #73494, and the foam #74038. Also make sure the SLINGER/CYCLONE ASSY part #74068 isn't clogged up.

SOURCE: how can I remove the pet hair that is trapped in

Generic comment.

If the parts aren't glued in, they must be snapped in or fastened with screws. You say there are no screws - try unsnapping.

I think id try a coat hanger first with the help of air pressure if you have access or a second vacuum.

Pet hair is definitely an annoyance in these machines. I know from experience. I guess that is why the instructions generally say to vacuum first! I learned my lesson with the coat hanger/air/vacuum method. Who needs stupid instructions anyway!

I hope you get your machine unclogged.

Vac Belts

SOURCE: Bissell Pet Hair Erase does not vacuum.

It is because the belt is worn or stretched and needs to be replaced. Here are the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Hi there, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. What you are describing is a pretty common problem, it is normally caused by a blockage or a brocken belt, or if you are really unluck ..both. Take the base plate of the bottom of the vacuum (part that kind of covers the brush) and check your belt and air path. 9 times out of 10 this is where your problem will be. Clean the pathways and away you go.
Happy Vacuuming :)
ps. If you are in Australia and need spares or parts for any Bissell machine simply visit our website. We'll be able to get you anything you need.

SOURCE: WHEN WE USE THE

A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
Check the filter, and change if dirty.

Which vacuum would you prefer for pet hairs ?


I've been repairing vacuums over 30 years, I prefer a bag vacuum because a good bag vacuum is a lot less maintenance, all the nasty stuff goes in a cheap paper bag (which is actually just a really good great big cheap filter) which you simply remove and gently sit in the trash. It usually takes less than 30 seconds to change bags and only needs done about once a month. You will dump a dirt cup about 40 times compared to changing one bag. Bags compact the dirt while bagless fluffs the dirt. Bagless filters and dust compartments need frequent cleaning and replaced at least once a year to work properly. Bagless vacuums leak more dust and dirt which you will notice on your vacuum. In the long run its much easier and cleaner using a bag vacuum plus they usually last much longer, usually outlasting 3 or 4 bagless vacuums. Much less expense and hassle in the long run.

My Dyson Animal vacuum smells horribly of dog. It's worse than my dog has ever smelled - even at his worst. How do I take apart the Animal to clean it properly? Can I use a weak water/Chlorox solution...


hi Donna.
Complete removal of pet hair from the home is a quandary many pet owners face. The Dyson Animal series vacuums use centrifugal force to remove animal hair from carpets, floors, curtains and upholstery. The high-powered vacuum is bagless, allowing you to extract pet hair from surfaces without worrying about running out of vacuum bags. As your Dyson Animal vacuum is exposed to pet hair and dander, a smell can develop. Similar to other small appliances, a vacuum needs periodic cleaning to keep it looking and smelling clean. When you use basic cleaning and deodorizing techniques, you can get the smell out of your Dyson Animal vacuum.

Step 1

Remove the bagless receptacle for pet hair according to the directions provided for your Dyson Animal vacuum. Hold the receptacle upside down inside a trash bag and tap the bottom to remove pet hair and dirt.

Step 2


Mix 1/2 tsp. of dishwashing detergent with 1/2 gallon of warm water in a bucket. Dip a clean cloth into the soap solution and wring it out.

Step 3

Wash the inside and outside of the receptacle with the cloth to remove dirt and dander that cause odor. Rinse the receptacle with a cloth dampened with water. Dry it thoroughly with another cloth.

Step 4

Remove the HEPA filter from your Dyson Animal vacuum. Pick visible clumps of pet hair off the filter and discard them. Flush the filter with cool water to wash out dirt and hair. Rinse the filter until the water runs clean. Gently squeeze the filter and allow it to air-dry for up to 12 hours to ensure it dries completely.

Step 5

Moisten a cloth with undiluted vinegar. Wipe off the exterior of the vacuum with the vinegar. Deodorize the receptacle and interior areas, where the bagless receptacle and filter go, by wiping them with the vinegar-moistened cloth. Dry the vacuum with a clean cloth.

Step 6


Place two drops of vanilla extract on a cotton ball. Drop the cotton ball into the receptacle before securing it to the vacuum to prevent odor from building up. Vanilla extract is an effective natural odor absorber.

hope this helps you out.

Bionaire humidifier model:bcm7309cm How to clean the air filters?


"You should change your furnace filter once a month in the winter season and your central air filter once a month during summer months.
If you run your heat or air every day and night, have pets, or your home collects a large amount of dust, you may need to change your filter more often during very hot and very cold months.
If you use disposable filters, it's really not worth vacuuming them to reuse them. They are inexpensive enough that you should replace them instead.
Disposable filters don't work as well after only being vacuumed and they are usually in a cardboard frame and therefore don't wash well.

Before you take out the filter, however, vacuum the outside and around the filter encasement. After you remove the filter, you should vacuum behind it, too, to catch any stray dust and particles.
Replace disposable filters with new ones."

My Bissell will not **** up pet hair or dirt


Hello,
Dirt hair and such will build up in the hoses of that vacum. Take them apart stretch them out and run something through them to make sure they are clean.
The other problem is the filter in the bottom of the cup. At least on some models there is a filter that gets totally pligged with dirt and dust. Take it apart, wash it out and them put everything back together.

How to remove filter on beam model 2775


Remove the bucket and look up inside the tank. There will be a finger loop to help pull the filter from it's track. You can shake it clean by wrapping a garbage bag around the tank, squeezing the air from the bag ( so it doesn't puff dust back at you)and then wrapping the bag over your hand and reaching up towards the filter.
This filter has a flat metal spring in it and will snap back into place. It is not normally removed unless it has gotten damp or stinky from pet odour. It is weighted in the middle with heavy beads in a sewn pouch.

I got a new filter for my Beam central vacuum. How do I replace it? Do I take off the top lid of the canister?


You would not normally need to replace the filter unless it is damaged. Access is from inside the tank itself. Remove the bucket and locate the finger loop on the existing filter. Pull toward the inside of the bucket. Replace the filer by setting in it's track and snapping tight to the wall of the vac. Unless damaged you can save and clean the old filter for reuse.

Do you know what a filter bag looks like in a central air vac system?


The unit displayed is a Beam Electrolux central vacuum power unit. It has a 15litre dust bucket which does not need any dust bags.

If you take the bucket off you will notice a white shiny weighted bag hanging down. This is the filter. The good news is, it is a self cleaning filter.

I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel

I purchased a Hoover WindTunnel 2 model#u8361900 in Dec 2007.I am very disappointed because the self cleaning filter is not turning and particles keep clogging in that area. I have manually removed the particles but the filter will not turn. I also haven't been able to use the pet brush for some time. The cleaner has not been used hard about once a week since it was purchased. I am not happy that this product has stopped working efficiently since purchased 6 months ago. Thank you Marcia Long Pottstown Pa
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I sorry you are having a problem with the Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum Model #U8361-900 but I never heard of a filter that you say is self cleaning and NOT turning. I have never seen a filter that turns inside the chamber, the dust and dirt basically go around and circulate around the filter and you can clean the filter by either brushing it off, vacuuming it off or using some type of brush to clean off the filter such as and old paint brush or if you have some type of blower system – that would work as well. You said your vacuum is less than one year old so I would contact your local factory authorized Hoover dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Hoover factory listed below. 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.
