BEAM Serenity Plus 2900 has shutdown

Was vacuuming dirt in the basement for past day and a half off/on. Today tried to fire it go. checked the back - emptied it. Wasn't all that full. Checked the power - no prob there. Is there a reset button for this unit if it had overheated??

    So there is power to the machine but it wont turn on?
    Or it's turning on with no suction?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. OK, there is a reset button on the unit but i think it could be that your vacuum could be clogged in the vacuum lines and that you should check all the inlets/outlets in your house with your vacuum hose - or get a vacuum cuff and go to each individual outlets and check the suction by feel - if the outlet is clogged you may have to call someone to unclogg it or by going to each oultlet the system may unclog it self -- or you can use a plumbers snake and be careful because the lines in a central vacuum are thinner than the walls in a plumbing situation or have it professionally unclogged by a priofessional. When you are using another vacuum to unclog the unit make sure the central vac is runing and to try to pull the clog apart from both directions. Below is a link to the factory for Beam and if you need a owners manuel for the Central Vac

Why does the power shut off on a dirt devil vision vacuum?

It is probably the thermal sensor which shuts the vacuum off it gets hot. It will come back on when it cools down. Replace all the filters as they are probably. Restricting the airflow

Hoover U6434-900 started smoking while vacuuming. Now it will not start. Waiting 30 mins for the reset but still wont start.

Check the drive belt and then check to make sure the cleaning bar is free of hair. This will cause a burning smell. I know, I raised 4 girls.....

Need to change the belt but can't get into the place where the belt is

You are just not looking hard enough for the fasteners to open this up. I am not familiar with this unit but I would guess there are screws holding it together the are usually concealed in deep channels. If you shine a light in them you should see the screw heads.

I have a dirt devil easy lite... how do I empty the top canister? I know how to empty the bottom half.

The upper half is where the filter is.
Here is the manual:

Page 7 shows after emptying the lower container, "Twist and lift to remove dirt container lid."

When I use it dust shoots out the top.

It's suppose to keep the dirt inside! Joking aside did you run it without the filter at one point? I've seen them where the motor compartment is full of dirt from one use without a filter. If it's shooting dust out the likely reason is dirt has made it past the filters to the motor compartment. Otherwise they generally dont shoot dirt outwards. If this doesn't help what brand of vacuum and model would give me an idea where to start.

I have a easy lite and have had for about one year. No problems until today. The dirt does not go into the canister. It just clogs the tube and the canister stays empty. What to do?
