How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

Should the brush not rotate freely there may be debris tangled around the ends of the brush, carefully remove any obstructions or replace the brush with a new one. We recommend that you fit a new belt and brush once per year to keep your Reactive vacuum working efficiently.
My Henry has been running for a long time and it has stopped working. Henry is fitted with a thermal cut out. If it has been running for an extended period of time, the overload will cut in and stop Henry from working until he has cooled down.
According to a consumer report survey, the medium lifespan for a vacuum is 8 years. With our tips on caring for your machine, yours should last much longer.
A henry hoover should have a 13amp fuse. Having a 5amp fuse would not make it overheat. The fuse would have blown otherwise. Swap it for a 13amp.
If the bag gets too full, this will put a strain on the motor, resulting in a loss of suction. It depends on how often you use the vacuum, but it`s recommended that you change the bag every six months.
We recommend to replace your Henry filter at least every 12 months depending upon the amount of use. In between new filters you can clean your Henry filter to remove the dust and increase suction. You can learn how to clean your Henry filter here.
We have two possible ways of adjusting the pressure in a vacuum system: first, by changing the pumping speed (altering the speed of the pump or throttling by closing a valve); second, through admission of gas (opening a valve).
The vacuum switching valve (VSV) which controls the vacuum supply to the actuator is normally closed and passes vacuum to the actuator when it is energized by the ECU. By energizing the VSV vacuum is passed to the actuator, closing the air control valve. This effectively lengthens the intake manifold run.
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.

Stopped working hello im in france, so my henry has a two pin plug. i feel all that needs changing is a fuse, but i carnt find it. i have taken out every possible screw searching for it but to no luck. iv checked and cleaned wireing and checked cable for nicks. im now begining to think maybe the motor has gone?
ANSWER : Hi!  Sorry you’ve had to wait so long for a reply, but I’ve only just stumbled upon your problem.  You probably don’t need help any longer, but here goes anyway!.You will not find a fuse, because there isn’t one.  If your Henry just stopped, without making any strange noises or smells, it’s very unlikely that you have a motor problem.  Quite often the wires can become broken inside the electric cable – with no visible external damage – especially where it enters the plug and can be subject to both bending and pulling stresses.  If the machine came to me for attention, that’s where I’d look first.  Check the wires for electrical continuity..If you still need help, and this solution doesn’t work, please write again and I’ll suggest some less likely things to look for..Good luck!

Henry hoover Hi all,
I bought a spares/ repairs Henry on ebay having been told there was no cable rewind and believing that since I had a spare one in the shed it would be an easy fix. However, poor Henry had his cable replaced to find when plugged in, he tries to start but nothing happens. The motor turns once and just cuts out. If you turn it on and off again it happens again. One whir and turn of the motor, then nothing. It blew the fuses out in the kitchen first time too, so could it be a re
ANSWER : Hi it can be the connector at the end of the Henry cable inside the cable rewind unit happened to us!

I purchased a utilitech 7-day digital in-wall timer #0141224. My house wires are two black wires and a green ground wire. The new timer has a w,g, r, and b, wires. My question is what wires do I connect. I found the black power wire from the house. I have no white wire in the switch box. Where would the red wire go? Thank you
ANSWER : Hi!!.


  • The Green wire goes to ground,
  • .

  • The White wire is the neutral. (in this case is used to supply power to the clock.)
  • .

  • The Black wire will have to be connected to the incoming black hot wire and,
  • .

  • The Red wire will go to the black wire going to the light.

.In order for the timer to work, you’ll need to run a Neutral wire from a nearby outlet into the switch box to power the timer..
.Good Luck!! A HELPFUL – 4 THUMBS – rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Husqvarna Viking Designer sewing machine. The fuse blew in the machine and I am having trouble finding a replacement fuse. It is a T3.5/250v glass fuse. Please let me know where to find one. I have searched the internet high and low and can’t find one. Radio Shack has a 3.0amp 250v slow blow fuse whick seems to be the right dimensions. Willl that work. Otherwise, I am not sure what to do and can’t afford to take the machine to a repair show. Thank you.
ANSWER : That fuse will work no problem. There is no harm in trying it.
The machine probably requires about 2 amps or less under normal operation.
Being a 3.0 amp slow blow fuse, it will withstand short bursts of extra current when your machine gets temporarily overloaded.

Just make sure the machine is properly lubricated and runs freely. The fuse will definitely blow if your machine should get jammed or something like that.

I think I know where I can score some. Cost of postage only. 🙂

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work
ANSWER : It could be the motor. I’m having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the carbon brushes wear down which is normal. However, the contact wire from the brush to its connector is set so that when the brush wears down, the wire is short enough to stop the spring etc from damaging the commutator. The end result is that you get an intermittent operation of the motor before it finally dies.
.I believe all the DYSONs come with the option of both motors and you cannot really tell which motor you have until you take the thing to bits. You also cannot change motors without changing various other parts on the hoover. On my DC 05 the writing on the YDK motor tells you which one it is.
.This website www. tasweb.org ,select the DC 05 option and scroll down tells you how to take the thing to bits. A search on google etc for your DC 07 may give similar results. Best of luck!

Hoover Wind Tunnel U6458-900
Self Propel doesn’t work – via other expert advice here for other models of Hoover – I’m thinking it is the actuator that needs to be replaced as I can see the cable does not connect to anything on the bottom. My problem is – I can’t get the cover off. Been trying for a couple of hours. I removed every screw I can seem to find but something is hold it down. I also am wondering if/when I do eventually get the cover off, would I need to replace the cable when I replac
