The Three Most Common Vacuum Cleaner Issues

A vacuum cleaner is a must-have for any home. They certainly make cleaning a lot easier.  That is, of course, until you find there is a problem with your vacuum cleaner. You can always expect a few issues with any machine you own; many problems are simple and can be easily replaced.  Here is a list of three of the most common vacuum cleaner issues that you can probably fix yourself. If you find you have another issue, though, it may be time for professional Vacupro réparation d’aspirateur or, unfortunately, replacement.

Vacuum Cleaner Issue #1:  LOSS OF SUCTION

This is probably the most common issue vacuum cleaner owner’s encounter.  Loss of suction, though, is actually the result of different issues and the fix will depend largely upon the type of vacuum cleaner you have.  Image result for The Three Most Common Vacuum Cleaner Issues

If you have a vacuum cleaner with a bag, for example, loss of suction could simply just be a sign that the bag is full and you need to empty it. Similarly, there may be an obstruction blocking the path of the suction hose to the bag itself.  Finally, there might also be a hole in the bag.

If you have a bagless vacuum cleaner, this loss of suction could also mean that the canister is full. However, it might also be the result of a broken seal.  Almost all these vacuum cleaners have filters that help to remove dust, allergens, and pollutants.  As such, a loss of suction could also be the result of a clogged air filter.

Vacuum Cleaner Issue #2:  The BEATER BAR

The beater bar is that long cylinder with the brushes on the underside of the cleaner itself. It is the instrument that helps to collect debris, dirt, and dust from the carpet (etc).  At times you might find that there is an unpleasant odor wafting from the beater bar. This is a common problem, too, and it usually means that something is tangled around the cylinder.   If the tangle is complex you might find it easier to just replace the beater bar—they often only cost about $20.

Vacuum Cleaner Issue #3:  LOSS OF POWER

Most modern machines have a sensor that intervenes when the machine approaches overheating.  If you experience a loss of power it might be that your vacuum is overheating and that could be the result of using the wrong size of machine for the job or that a clogged hose or filter is forcing the motor to work too hard.
