Taking Care of Your Vacuum Cleaner

      Comments Off on Taking Care of Your Vacuum Cleaner

The vacuum cleaner is a complex machine that can make life a lot easier. Of course, that is to say as long as it is working properly. As is the case with many machines, improper care—or just lots of use over a long period of time—can result in malfunction that requires repair. Fortunately, in the case of the vacuum cleaner, for example, it is easy to maintain them; and also often not too difficult to repair them yourself.

Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

It is easy to overlook the importance of proper vacuum cleaner maintenance.  After all, you use the machine perhaps a few times a month and, typically, will not encounter many problems over the course of many years.

That is, of course, if you do not properly maintain them. For example, if you do not empty the bag or canister, the Vacupro réparation d’aspirateur will not work properly.  Obviously, if you realize the bag is full—and simply needs emptying—you can avoid a major headache later and just empty the bag.


But even if you are good at remembering to empty the bag, you might overlook the importance of checking the filter. You should basically check the filter every time you empty the bag to ensure that it is not clogged and does not need replacing.  Either of these things can cause poor suction, loss of power, an odd smell, and overall malfunction if you do not remedy them quickly.

Do It Yourself Vacuum Cleaner Repair

But even regular maintenance cannot prevent the need for repair once in a while. Parts will wear out or you might overlook something; electrical components short out by no fault of your own, etc.  Regardless, you should be aware that there are many repairs you can probably do at home—without intimate knowledge or skill.

For example, if you detect a strange odor when you run your vacuum cleaner, it is more than likely something is tangled in the beater brush.  Turn over the machine and look at the roll of brushes to see if something is, in fact, tangled in there.  Tangles overwork the motor and that is what causes the smell. Of course, fixing this quickly means you prolong the life of your motor.  A common seam ripper can often cut through the tangle.  In addition, you can always just replace the brush for around $20.
