There are a lot of places that it could be leaking. The most common is a valve under the hood.you will have to put water in it and watch and inspect to trace where it is leaking.

Hello,

This is a pretty clear indication that your filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. HEPA filters are different then say pre-motor filters, or sponge filters. Because they are usually the last filter before the air is exhausted, it's usually catching very tiny microscopic particles. Because of this, trying to determine if the filter is dirty or clogged can be difficult, if not impossible on HEPA pleated exhaust filters.

The fact that your filters continues popping out, indicates that the air is not being able to pass through the filter as it's supposed to, and is instead the air is having to try and find a different way to escape, causing the force of the back up of air to blow the filter out.

I think if you replace this filter, it should fix the problem completely. Because this filter is designed to capture microscopic particles rather then large particles, washing this filter, or getting it wet is not advised, and wouldn't be an effective way to clean it. You really will need to replace the filter soon, but if you'd like to try and prolong the life of your filter, you may use an air compressor, and blow from the top of the filter (the area that looks clean), and clear the microscopic particles, and dust out of the filter this way. If you suffer from breathing issues, asthma, or allergies, I would highly advise against doing this without a mask on. The dust that will come out is extremely fine dust that can cause people with the above conditions to suffer greatly. Doing this outdoors is highly recommended.

An air compressor can certainly prolong the life of HEPA filters, but again, sooner or later you'll need to replace the filter.

If the noise is coming from the motor area it could be your motor is bad.

The most likely cause of a very loud noise is the motor or brushroll. Dust escaping occasionally could indicate a clog somewhere.

If the smoking at the base smells like burned rubber it's probably your belt. If it smells electrical it's probably your motor or an electrical problem.

Lay the unplugged vacuum upside down and remove the bottom plate covering the brushroll to remove the brushroll and belt. Make sure brushroll bristles aren't worn, replace it also if needed. Make sure brushroll will spin freely. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Pull on brushroll with both hands to get enough leverage to stretch the belt far enough to drop the brushroll in place. Put bottom plate back on and insure brushroll will turn by hand before you turn it back on..

There are different models with different ways to install the bag. The most common one is where the bag just pushes over the tube where the dirt comes into the dust compartment. Some have a paper bag inside a cloth bag with a variety of ways to attach the bag. For instructions on your specific model please include your model number.
