How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

The superficial causes for your VAX vacuum shutting off during use can be from blockages along the hose and body of the model. There can also be a blockage caused by a build-up of dust, dirt, hair and debris across the models` brush bar.
If your pre motor filter has become clogged by dirt and dust this will drastically limit the suction. If your filter is washable then rinsing it under some cold water will help clear the buildup of muck it`s collected. Once rinsed it is recommended to allow the filter to air dry for about 24 hours.

Replace handle release pedal on a vax power 6

Bissell 3595 handle release pedal spring(?) missing
ANSWER : I just fixed this on my Bissell PowerForce model #6594 vacuum myself. Woo Hoo for me. 🙂
.
.I called the local vacuum repair guy and he told me he’d repair it for me if I insisted but that since my machine only cost about $80 (a lot of money for me) it would not be worth the $40-$50 repair. I should just buy a new vacuum (from him I assume).
.
.My machine works great so I sat down on the floor and after removing 5 screws and a little tinkering I got my machine apart. I had to take the brush and belt area off and then the upright part came off the base. Make sure you unplug your unit before working on it.
.
.Next I could see where the Handle Release Pedal (HRP) on the bottom of the unit had been cracked. It’s a molded piece that has a slight curve in it that allows it to spring back into position to hold the vacuum in the upright position or to keep the vacuum from going totally flat.
.
.How it was installed I don’t think they meant for it to be easily replaced but after using a screw driver on one side and a letter opener on the skinnier side I pried the molded houseing out from around the HRP just enough to let the it release. I did need a third hand for that part.

How do you replace Hoover Handle Release Pedal on
ANSWER : The handle pedal is snapped in to the base, where it pivots.
.The pedal needs to be pried away fron the base, exposing the pivot pin to release it for removal. On your model, you will likelly have to remove the lower handle from the base (where it pivots) to get room to release and replace the pedal.

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off – seemed to only work when I had the handle a certain way. Now no power at all. is there a way that I can check if its the power in the handle section as thats the only way you can turn this machine on? Thanks in advance
ANSWER : As the wires that control the motorhead run all the way down the hose it is a break in the wires you will need to buy the hose assy sorry its not thesort of thing you strip down and repair

My 8 yr old kenmore vacuum works well – however the hose has worn under the handle where there is a hole (resulting in decreased suction power). I’d like instructions on opening the handle and bypassing the worn piece of tubing rather than replacing it for $129. Some of the handle screws remove easily but the last one doesn’t loosen easily.
ANSWER : Hi,

Have you tried spraying the stubborn screw with WD40 and let it soaked for a while? Other than these screws holding the handle together, there would no other way of opening it up.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
