How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Vacuum cleaners are fairly simple machines. They need power to be transmitted to the vacuum to create a suction force that lifts debris. So, the usual areas that cause suction loss include the wrong height setting, stuck rollers, a faulty gasket, a broken vacuum belt, a filled bag, or a clogged hose.
The most common problems found in vacuum cleaners are low suction force, excessive noise, burning smell, vacuum not turn on, and overheating. These issues can be fixed by either cleaning the device or replacing some parts of the device. At times, it is best to seek a professional to fix the cleaner effectively.
Simply plug the product back in or restore the power and then switch off the appliance using the button on the control panel. The door will now unlock.
To fix a clog in the hose, feed one end into a garbage bag, and poke the other end with the back of a mop pole, until you push the clog material out into the garbage bag. To fix a clog in the vacuum, whether it is a canister or bag, use your finger to feel for a clog. Pull as much of it out as you can and discard.
Check the hose for any clogs
If your Shark vac has a hose, feel along the length for any lumps. That indicates a clog that`s causing your suction issues. See if you can break the clog by applying gentle pressure with your hands, or gently move it to the end of the hose to remove it.
Low suction or poor pick-up may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action, check for clogs. First, remove the Easy Empty dirt tank from the vacuum and discard all dirt and debris.
Vacuum cleaners are not only effective at excellent cleaning , they are also easy to use. Cleaning is quick with vacuum cleaners as they save time and manual effort.
A universal motor is typically used as suction motor across vacuum cleaners. The universal motor is a series DC-motor that is specially designed to operate on alternating current (AC) as well as on direct current (DC). Universal motors have high starting torque, operate at high speed, and are lightweight.
But vacuuming alone is not enough to remove the ground-in dirt, stains, and allergens that cling to oily upholstery and carpet fibers and many sprays & foams only attack the stain`s surface (the part of the stain that is visible on top of the carpet).
To release the wand on the Hoover® REACT™ Powered Reach™ Plus press the Powered Reach™ Mode button on the top of the canister. This will allow you to remove the canister and access the wand release. The wand release button is located on the spine of the vacuum directly behind the dirt cup.
You can try turning the power off and leaving the machine for about 10 minutes before turning it back on to see if the door unlocks. You should also check the door and handle (they may be fragile), as the power to the machine is turned off for safety reasons, try to manipulate the handle gently to open it.

My Bissell 3920 motor is making a high pitched noise. I have cleared out pet hair from top to bottom. Cleaned the lower filter and replaced the upper filter. I Checked for blockage in the hoses and found none. The filter indicator goes green when I turn it on, but the straining motor noise persists.
I have a DC07 and the brush wasn’t rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn’t turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

I have a Dyson DC07 Yellow Vac, I use this vacuum professionally and clean it after every job so there is no issues with the filter which are replaced regularly.
When you turn it on it makes a noise as if it were blocked….I have checked all pipes, hoses and now disassembled the machine to the point where the motor is out. I have found that a small rubber valve or bleed valve (Attached to the right hand detachable filter housing and activated via an internal spring) is popping when the vac
Hi, Where exactly is this spring?
My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction. We have cleaned both filters, checked for blockage in all hoses & cleaned the beater bar brush. All to no avail. Is it the motor? Or is there a blockage deep in the vac somewhere? We’re debating repair versus buying a new one. Hope you can help. Thanks.

Pressure relief valve opens
.If the hose works ok then you have A blockage in the section of the machine that goes from the brush roller to the wastebin.
.Just remove the soleplate under the machine & check all the airways working back to the wastebin. definately check removeable inspection ports you will probably find omething in them blocking the airway.
The vacuum does not have suction. I have cleaned the filters, checked the hose paths and the hose won’t **** anything up. I even checked with all the filters removed, still no suction. It is blowing air out the exhaust.
Have you checked the belt?
