Does it try to vacuum but never flattens the bag? Make sure the bag you are using is completely sealed on the opposite end. Otherwise, the seal on the sealer is probably allowing air to leak into the sealer. If it has a foam sealer, I've found it sometimes helps to run the foam sealer under water, squeeze out the excess water, reinsert the foam sealer (make sure it is seated all the way) and then try again to seal the bag.

Can it vacuum liquid


Hello, Atholl -

Only a vacuum which is identified as a "wet" vacuum or a "wet-dry" vacuum can vacuum up liquid. Also an electric carpet shampooer and an electric floor washer can "vacuum up" liquid.

If you need to know about a specific make and model of vacuum, you need to choose Comment and add the make and model there.

Best wishes.

How much do I need to spent to get a quality vacuum?


Cost isn't the main factor to get a quality vacuum. There are plenty of vacuums in all price ranges that may work great the first year or two. Some expensive vacuums have problems and require lots of maintenance. Most vacuums in the hundred dollar price range are good for about a year. Bagless vacuums require a lot more maintenance than a bagged vacuum. Filters must be cleaned frequently to insure good airflow, and the filters and belts should be replaced at least once per year on most models. Filter replacement on bagged vacuums is not as critical because the dirt goes into the bag keeping the insides of the vacuum a lot cleaner which makes it last longer. Some vacuums, Hoover Windtunnel for example are available as a bagged or bagless model. The bagged models perform much longer than the bagless models for the average consumer, mainly because most people do not maintain their vacuums properly. There are a few really great vacuums in the two to three hundred dollar range that can work great for 10 years or more with nominal routine maintenance. The best place to find one is at a reputable vacuum store.

Excessive motor noise. vacuum works fine.


Are you looking to reduce the noise of the vacuum? It is unlikely that you can do anything to reduce the noise of it. Vacuums tend to be very noisy so the best solution is to buy a quieter vacuum. This vacuum seems to be a popular choice for a quiet solution:

http://www.amazon.com/Electrolux-EL6984A-Harmony-Canister-Vacuum/dp/B0000SWABO

However, this vacuum is considerably more costly than the vacuum you own. A cheaper alternative would be this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00002N630/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0000SWABO&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0WXK82P0BSXX046J35MS

Both of these vacuums have high reviews and have been commended for their noise reduction.

Doesnt ****


Hello,

If the vacuum sounds like it usually does and still doesn’t pick up, you probably need to replace the belt. To check this, turn the vacuum on and lay it down sideways. Check to see if the roller is spinning. If it's spinning, turn the vacuum off. Stand it up and turn it back on. Do you hear the roller spinning. Some belts stretch over time. If the roller was spinning when the vacuum was on it’s side and stops when the roller has some pressure on it (your carpet), change the belt.
A clogged vacuum cleaner usually sounds "clogged". The noise the vacuum normally makes will seem muffled. First, Unplug Your Vacuum. Then change the vacuum bag or empty the dirt cup. If the bag is filled up more than halfway, this could reduce your suction. Throw out the bag. Look at the area that holds the dirt cup or vacuum bag. Remove any debris. Look for a filter in this area. If you find a filter make sure it's relatively clean. A clogged filter will shorten the life span of your vacuum. Make sure your filter is back in place or replaced, and reinstall the vacuum bag or dirt cup.
A lot of the current style upright vacuum cleaners have attachments and a hose on board. If you have a vacuum hose on your upright, pull it out like your going to vacuum with it. Look at the area you removed the hose from. Remove any debris. I recommend wearing gloves, and try not to use any sharp tools like a needle nose pliers that might puncture your vacuum hose.
For the final step in this vacuum cleaner repair, place the vacuum in a position where you have a birds eye view of the bottom plate. You can usually see if there is any debris that requires removal.
Here is a link that will take you to a site that shows how to access your machine to change belt or look for clogs.
