SOURCE: how can i clean the hose of my bissell spot bot?

Well... it's sub optimal but this is what I did, run hot water into the sink, add a few table spoons of bleach and run the hose along the edge of the water to slowly **** it into the hose (the tank fills very rapidly and the auto shut off will activate). You will want to run 4 or 5 tanks of waste to get the bulk of the gunk along the walls out and this will also get rid of the serratia growing (red stuff). If you dangle the hose in a u down the front of the sink and shut off the machine you can catch about a pint of water and bleach solution in the hose and roll it around inside the hose then let it sit for awhile and finish by sucking it into the waste tank, not perfect but my hose is much cleaner.

Are vacuums supposed to blow out air through vent?


Every vacuum has an exhaust vent to release filtered air. If it didn't, and the motor was strong enough, pressure would build up inside until something let go, and we wouldn't want that to happen! In the old days, by the way, some vacuums had an attachment that let you use the exhaust vent as a blower to inflate toys etc.

Vacuum brushes are turning but not picking up dirt and is blowing a lot of air out of the top air filter thing


Did you check carefully for splits? After sucking something up that big, you may have split something, like in a fold of the hose. When it is in a position where the split is somewhat sealed, it works. Move it just a bit and the split separates and it won't work.

Sharp bag less makes loud noise at air vent while running. This is new . What is cause.?


There is probably something stuck in or near the vent that is acting like a reed in a clarinet and playing you a note. Clean out the vent.

How do I clean Hitachi Tower Fan Model CF26PH? There doesn't seem to be a manual online in English and it's filthy inside. Can I just pull off the grill?


The easiest way is to take an air compressor and blow out the dust internally first through all of the vents. Then just take a damp cloth with a water/soap mix or some cleaning product that can be used on the plastic and just wipe down the outside. I recommend using the air compressor outside. If you don't have an air compressor available to you, then the cans of compressed air will work too.

Let me know how this works out for you.

No vacumm pressure. the passages are clear and the motor runs but there is very little suction.


if you are certain no blockages ? and the dust collector is clear/clean ? have you checked that the outlet filter which is located inside dust compartment is clean/clear this is usually a gauze filter its purpose is - as vac works and draws dust into collector the air that is sucked up thro vac builds up in collector chamber or bag on most vacs? and so for vac to maintain suction the air has to be able to escape to atmosphere/room without dust which is left insude chamber/bag if fitted and so air escapes via the gauze vent as prev mentioned ? however if gauze filter is not clear to vent then vacuuum is restricted due to air drawn being unable to expel sometimes on vacs they will eventually cut off due to o/heat but will operate when cooled so may i suggest checking the above possibility ?

Need to clean hose.


I filled a bowl with hot bleach water and sucked the water up. It cleaned the hose pretty well (along with the gunk that was stuck in the hand wand). Mine was filthy. It looked like it had mold growing in it. Then I ran several rounds of hot water through the hose. I alternated hot water & bleach. Did this about 8 times. It is not perfect, but it sure does look a lot better. 90% of the gunk is gone.

How to clean hepa filter


Run the HEPA filter under warm running water and allow to dry completely - preferably where it can get air from both sides of filter, do not dry in direct sunlight this can damage the filter, it is best in a warm room, can be dried in a dishdrainer if possible this way it gets air from both sides and will dry fast without promoting mold/mildew Good Luck !

Unintentionally vacuumed up fine silty powder from sanding drywall mud.


hi carol the yellow cylinder with hundreds of holes is the passage of vacuumed air from container as you are aware and understand if you use h/brush and clean outside of cyl of excess fluff etc then use a suitable probe /darning needle or better as i use a screw driver as used by watch makers ? you can poke out all holes and shake the vac now and again to allow any debri to fall thro coned pipe of cyl it is tediouse but a good job done when you come to vac again also may i suggest you remove the lower cover that covers the rollerbrush and you may will find this area is also gunged up to? so pick out and brush clear hope this helps/inspires you to diy maintain the most important tool in home best wishes

Scooba not picking up dirt


I have had the same problem for six months and finally found the solution.

The problem is that the air duct into the dirty water tank was blocked. The air flows up the black removeable hose, into the dirty water tank and out through the filter. With the air duct into the dirty water tank blocked, no dirt gets anywhere near the filter.

The black removeable hose is the hose in the base of Scooba that the instructions tell the user to clean after each use. Despite cleaning this hose after each use, plenty of cat hair and other dirt passed by the hose and got lodged above it on the tank side of the incoming air duct.

The air duct into the dirty water tank is formed out of the blue plastic the tank is made from. You can find it by looking to see where the black removeable hose lines up with the tank when it is placed on Scooba. It is the same diameter is a the removeable black hose so you can't miss it.

Getting the gunk out is tricky because there is a bend in the duct. I fished most of it out with my fingers and then poked a bendable plastic spoon handle to get further down the duct. I then flushed water down it and shook the tank to get more out. After cleaning, water dripped into the air vent would come out the dirty water tank drain hole with little resistance.

After cleaning the air intake duct I ran my Scooba and got dirt in the filter for the first time in months.
