Signs you Need to Take your Vacuum in to get Serviced

If your vacuum has loss of suction or just isn’t performing with the same quality as it used to have, bring it in to an authorized dealer whether cordless, upright, canister or other and they will service and repair it.

1

Clogged Vacuum Hose

If there is an object or some type of debris stuck in your hose, your vacuum will be louder. It is also pretty easy to tell if this is the source of the problem when listening to your vacuum. If it sounds like it is trying harder to suck air, then something is likely stuck inside the suction line. You could produce this same type of sound by blocking the hose with your hand. There might also be rattling or other unusual sounds.

Brush Roller

Going along with my above story, inspect your brush. If it is getting stuck but there is nothing blocking the suction, then your brush roller might be worn. At a later time, the brush roller on my Hoover could no longer spin, causing excessive noise. We replaced it with a new one. If your brush roller spins very easily, see the next section about vacuum belts.

Inspect Belts

Inspect Belts

Worn belts are another common source of loud vacuums. If a belt is no longer attached very tightly or is wearing out, it can cause some terrible noises. Newer belts need to be stretched quite a bit to fit into your vacuum, but that tightness is key to normal vacuuming. Check your owner's manual to see what belt is required.

Check Bag or Canister

Check Bag or Canister

If your bag or canister is full, then your vacuum can also produce unusually loud noises. When full, a bag or canister can cause the vacuum cleaner to be less efficient and work harder. Feel the bag to see if it is full. For a debris canister, visually inspect it to see if it is filled. It is recommended that you empty canisters each time that you finish vacuuming.

Vacuum Motor

If none of the above are the source of the problem, then your motor might be dying. Take your vacuum cleaner into a repair shop for servicing at this point.

Cord Problems

If the cord on your vacuum cleaner is frayed or broken you vacuum may lose power or not work at all! Bring it in to an electrician or a vacuum cleaner repair center to get it checked out and fixed.

Sounds Funny

Sometimes you can't tell where that funny sound is coming from unless you take apart your vacuum and check. Bring it in to a vacuum cleaner repair center to get it checked out and fixed so you can get back to cleaning!
