Vacuum Not Picking Up Like it Used to?
If your vacuum isnâ€™t picking up like it used to check to see if the brush bar roller is turning. If itâ€™s not, the solution could be as simple as removing wads of tangled hair or carpet string from the area. If that isnâ€™t the problem a quick replacement of the belt could also do the trick.
Loss of Suction?
If you are experiencing loss of suction, check first to make sure that the bag is not full. So many people forget to change the bag and wonder why their sweeper wonâ€™t suck anything else up. If your bag isnâ€™t full try checking to make sure the hose is clear. If the bag isnâ€™t full and the hose is clear you should check the filters.
If you notice a strange or bad smell coming from your vacuum cleaner, there are a couple of easy fixes that may help. If it smells like rubber, you may have snapped the vacuum cleanerâ€™s belt. But if it just plain stinks, chances are you need to change your filter. Filters can be found on both bagged and bagless vacuums. Vacuums with filters are great for trapping dust and other allergens in the home and make for cleaner air, which equals less tissues and sneezing. But these filters can become clogged and full over time making them less efficient. As a general rule, filters last considerably longer than bags. Therefore you wonâ€™t have to change them as often as you change your bag. But you should pay close attention to the filter to be sure it doesnâ€™t need changed and isnâ€™t clogged so that it can do its job.
So before you toss your vacuum, try these simple quick fixes first. With a little attention and routine maintenance there is probably still plenty of life left in your vacuum.
