How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

First, check that the cord is properly connected to the vacuum cleaner (again, this is surprisingly easy to overlook) and that there are no splits in the rubber. If the cord is damaged, it will need immediately repairing or replacing. The on/off switch can break over time and need replacing.
How Vacuum Switches Work. Once the switch registers a change in the negative pressure based on the preset sensitivity of the setpoint, the diaphragm of the switch will open or close the attached circuit, turning off or powering on a device. Vacuum switches can be used with NO and NC states.
If your vacuum cleaner keeps turning off, this could be due to the following reasons: Blockages – check the hose and head for any obstructions. Filter – always check your filters, if these are clogged this could be causing the vacuum cleaner to work harder and lose suction power.
Blockages or dirty filters may cause this to happen, the safety cut off will activate and switch off the electrical supply. If the cleaner has cut out, simply unplug and check for a blockage or dirty filters.
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.
Why won`t my power unit shut off? Make sure the unit is in the Auto mode and that there is not a hose plugged into a wall valve. Unplug the low volt wire at the side of the unit, if the unit continues to run, the relay in the pc board is faulty and the entire pc board needs to be replaced.
In order to actuate the switch, the diaphragm needs to be pushed against the switching mechanism. So it all comes down to this. Air is either pushing the diaphragm up, or sucking it up. That is the difference between a pressure switch and vacuum switch.
A differential pressure switch is a device which utilizes a differential air pressure to actuate an electric switch at a pre-set actuation point. This may be the difference between two positive or two negative pressures, one of each, or a positive and atmospheric or a negative and atmospheric pressure.
Air compressor pressure switches use air lines to monitor pressurized air as it moves to and from your air tank. All pressure switches have an element that reacts when pressure is applied to it. The most common device is a diaphragm that will deform or compress when exposed to pressurized air.
Overheated Motor

If your vacuum was working fine and then suddenly shut off, it may have overheated. Most vacuums are equipped with a thermal protector safety switch that won`t allow the motor to run when it becomes overheated. You will need to wait for 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on your machine, to try again.

The average life expectancy of a mid-range vacuum cleaner is about six years. You can fix or replace things like blocked filters, jammed brush rolls, frayed hoses, worn-out stick vac batteries and broken accessories yourself.
On average, According to Consumer Reports, vacuum cleaners last a median of eight years. But the lifespan varies wildly by not only brand but your own personal use.
If the battery of the robot is empty, the robot is going to be displayed as offline. Please make sure that the robot is charged, just press the power button on the robot and check the battery status.
Stick Vacuum Not Running

First make sure you have charged your device. If the vacuum still will not turn on after that, try to unplug the vacuum charger from the outlet. Leave the charger unplugged for at least 1-2 minutes. Next, turn on the stick vacuum and let run until the battery completely drains.

A: No reset button. You must wait for the motor to cool down and reset itself. You should also clean the filter or it will overheat again.
Locate the brush reset button on the lower back right of the vacuum. Press the button to reset the brushroll To ensure the brush has been reset, plug the vacuum back into the electrical outlet.
Vacuum System Failures:

Occurs when the vacuum pump fails or when both intakes are blocked.

If all you hear from the vacuum unit is a click at the when you try to start the vacuum motor from inside the house, then the motor in the unit is dead and has to be replaced. A strong odor from the shellac, which coats the copper coil windings, is an indicator that the motor is about to or has burnt out.
Check the power unit reset button located above the power cord. Pressing the button should restore operation. NOTE: The reset button is located on the upper left-hand side of the unit where the low voltage wires connect to the unit. It is most noticeable when popped out after the breaker has been tripped.
The suction power is to be measured at the end of the tube of a complete vacuum cleaner (i.e. with tube, hose and filters – but without nozzle). Some manufacturers show the results from measurements made at the suction of the actual vacuum cleaner.
If this appliance also appears to have no power, there is possibly a problem with the supply at that socket. Check the socket is switched on and that there is not an isolator switch somewhere in your home which may be switched off or tripped out. If there is an isolator or fuse box, check it is also switched on.
First of all, check the fuse and connections in the plug. Next check the on/off switch – check out our video on replacing the on/off switch. Next check the Hi/Lo switch and speed PCB – check out our video on replacing the PCB. Next check the motor carbon brushes.
There are two main types of pressure switches: mechanical pressure switches and electronic pressure switches.
Some people will tell you that a Pressure Sensor is a device for pressure measurement of gases or liquids. Included in this Pressure Sensor category along with pressure switches are pressure transducers, pressure transmitters, and pressure senders, among other names.

How to replace power cord on Hoover WindTunnel upright vacuum
ANSWER : The aforementioned solutions probably never even attempted this fix on this model. The handle does NOT need to come off. but the 5 screws on the front housing DO: 2 above the light and 3 below it. Then to get the colored housing off you need to access 2 screws on the underside that are beneath the agitator roller. To do that, obviously the 4 screws holding the bottom plate need to come off too. Here’s a link to a schematic that might help as you attempt to do this, (assuming that you still do!) http://www.elkypro.com/hoops2005/vacuum_parts/hoover/U5461-900.html

Once you have the main body housing cover off, then you can access the 2 screws atop of each trunnion cover that holds the motor assembly cover halves together. If you’ve made it this far, then gently pry apart the motor halves keeping even as yo do. Now you can see all the wiring necessary to cut and splice. Happy cord replacing! As for me, I am headed for the store, as I am not so sure I can remember how to get the darn thing put back together. But it was fun taking it apart!

Roomba discovery on full charge power up and it will run 5 sec power button then flashes red and roomba quits. I have tried removing battery and holding power button for 30 sec then charging same result
ANSWER : Unfortunately the batteries on the roombas can go bad and not hold a charge and need to be replaced, also you should check all the brushes and wheels on the bottom, if they are bound up it would stop the roomba from working. the two brush rollers can be removed by pushing on the two tabs just above them, try and clean any hair from them. if its real bad you should buy the maintance kit from them witch gives you both brushes and filters as well.

.Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I am not familiar with the light system on the Miele Revolution 5000 Power Plus

.But it has something to do with the electronic hose assm or the circuitry in the vacuum itself. I have listed the factory phone # listed below for your further information. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

When i hit the power button on my miele carina, it doesnt lock and stay on. i have to hold down the power button for the power to stay on. Please advise
ANSWER : Try a little WD-40 sprayed sparingly on the button. work the button a few times- may be sticky spring or contact. if that doesn’t work, check with retailer where you purchased it- see if you can get a replacement switch! if you’re handy, or have a handy friend, you can prob. replace it yourself!
good luck!
