How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Plugged vacuum hoses are sometimes the reason for a loss in suction. Hoses can get clogged with hair, dust bunnies, string, or anything else that can`t pass through the other end of the hose. Airways inside the machine should be looked at as well. Wherever there is an air passage, check it.
Relevant Questions and Answers :
the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.However, most vacuum cleaners are fairly straightforward machines, and as long as you unplug the unit before you attempt any maintenance, then you should not have any trouble with the repair.
.Just be sure to keep track of all the screws you remove, and if different sizes are used in different parts of the vacuum, keep them separated and labelled so you can reinstall them in the correct places later.
.If the unit has a cover over the collection bag compartment, be sure to remove the cover and the bag to check for additional screws in that compartment.
.Other than that, just remove the visible screws holding the cover in place and then carefully remove the cover. If you need to reconnect the power supply wires from the cord to the vacuum, you may need to use a soldering iron, depending on how they are connected.

.We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it’s highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time. Any suggestions?
.I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

.The only thing I can suggest is that the brushroll could be in backwards, as you look @ the bottom of the brushroll from the bottom plate, the head of the screws should be facing the floor on each side of the brushroll, so check the brushroll because I thing that is what is happening, what you can do is adjust the brushroll down using the screws doing a ¼ or ½ turn
.Until the brushroll stops bouncing across the floor, once you get it adjusted correctly then raise the height adjustment to the highest level and adjust downward to listen for the tone to change and then try it, it should work and if not go down one more adjustment – also change the belt every 4 to 6 months as recommended by the manufacturer. Feel free to contact a local vac dealer in your area for the brushroll height adjustment if you have problems. 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.
