My Dyson vacuum when running is pulsating and shut off instead or running continuously


Hello, this is Ava of Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

No blockage in my vacuum cleaner but it keeps shutting off during use using an electrolux oxygen


The motor's overtemperature thermal shutoff is shutting down the motor. This is due to
undue load on the motor, from:
(a) bearings have lost lubrication and are about to seize up if you run the vacuum much more, or
(b) there is some resistance to turning the motor that has increased over time, possibly a loss
of lubrication around the beater bar, or turning the impeller.
Either way, finding the lubrication point that needs to be addressed will revive your dying vac.

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    Water solution does not come out--is something plugged


    It could also be due to the brush assembly channels being clogged. Remove the brush assembly and clean channels by running under warm tap water.
    To clean the brush assembly/nozzle, turn cleaner off and disconnect from electrical outlet. Slide the two nozzle release latches outward. Remove the nozzle by pulling straight out. Rinse nozzle under running water. Remove debris from squeegee and wipe with a damp cloth. Using finger grips on the brush assembly, pull straight out. The brush assembly can be washed with a mild detergent and rinsed. Do not use pine or solvent-based detergents.
    To replace nozzle, make sure latches are out. Align middle section of nozzle with opening on cleaner. While holding nozzle in place, slide latches inward to lock in place.

    Make sure your solution tank is full and securely locked in position.

    Lastly, if this fails, you can contact the Hoover Service Center by calling 1-800-944-9200 for an automated referral of authorized service outlet locations (U.S. only).

    Usually, replacement is needed when the brush no longer runs or is intermittent. Check the brush bearings and for debris build-up whenever the belt is changed. Good luck!

    Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.
