How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Sometimes pieces of string or other objects get wrapped around your vacuum`s rotating brush or around the wheels of the vacuum. Unplug your vacuum. Turn it over and have a look at the wheels and brush. If you see any pieces of string or objects lodged there, remove them.
Most good vacuum cleaners come with attachments that are designed to make it easier to vacuum hard-to-reach spaces. The crevice tool is an attachment that comes with most vacuum cleaners and it typically features a narrow end that can fit in most tight spaces.
Many people naturally exert more force when they`re pulling their vacuums back than when they`re pushing them forward, but this can leave dirt on the floor. Vacuums are designed to be pushed forward at a rate of about 12 inches per second and pulled back at a rate of 6 inches per second.
Turn the unit on and feel the suction at the end of the hose handle. If there is no or low suction, then the clog is in the hose. You can remove the clog by running a long, stiff object through the hose, such as a butter knife, starting at the wall end.
Relevant Questions and Answers :
the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
sure enough i found that my roller was warn down to nubs (vacuum is probably 8 years old, and gets used nearly every day)
I replaced the roller and WOW! it feels like its self propelled now. HUGE DIFFERENCE.
thanks for the help!!
There are three common reasons why vacuum cleaners are getting hard to push.
1. Base is dirty – The base needs to be clean from dirt and tar.
2. Height is too low – You might want to consider adjusting the height up a little bit.
3.Belt broken or worn – If the belt is broken or already worn this will cause the machine to be hard to push.
Checking all these can make your vacuum easy to push on carpet. Especially checking the belt.
Hope it helps.
