I love this business. So useful to have, wonderful guys, reasonable pricing, excellent service work.10/16/2019
These guys provide top-notch service! When I came home for the summer, my central vacuum system was completely inoperative. My home is over 10,000 sq ft, so not having a working central vacuum system is not an option. The gentleman Chris at the store came right out and personally checked out my system and got it running again. It works even better now than it EVER did. Customer service like this is UNHEARD OF in this day and age. I will certainly be a repeat customer! Thank you, gentlemen!10/16/2019
Signs Your Vacuum Needs to be Repaired
Your vacuum cleaner makes like work of keeping your floors, upholstery, and various other surfaces in your house a whole lot easier. However, they can take a real beating, and like any other appliance, they are prone to breakdowns. Some problems are a simple diagnose and take care of on your own, but for others, you need a professional.
East Hampton Vacuums, Long Island’s leading vacuum repair service, has been fixing broken vacuums for more than 30 years. No matter what type of problem you may be experiencing, you can count on the pros at East Hampton Vacuums to get it running as good as new in no time.
How can you tell if your vacuum needs to be repaired by a professional? If you’re experiencing any of the following problems, contact East Hampton Vacuums to schedule a repair.
Little to No Suction
Loss of suction is one of the most common vacuum problems. This can happen for a number of reasons, and some are simple fixes. For instance, the bag or canister may be full or the filter may be dirty. If the bag or canister is empty and you’ve cleaned out the filter, however, and the suction still seems weak, you should bring it into a professional.
Causes of lost suction could be related to a cracked hose, a major clog, or damage to the motor. If the suction power on your vacuum is weakened, even after you’ve tried to fix the issue on your own, a professional will be able to diagnose the cause of the problem and repair it.
Shuts Off Mid-Use
Is your vacuum cleaner shutting off while you’re in the middle of using it? If so, chances are there’s a major problem. Modern vacuum cleaners are outfitted with automatic shut-off features. If the vacuum is overheated, this feature will sense the heat and will turn the unit off automatically.
If the vacuum turns off while you’re running it, turn it off, unplug it, check for clogs, and make sure that you have it set to clean the right surface (if you have the setting too low and you’re cleaning a carpet with a deep pile, the motor can become overheated). If neither of these are issues, call to schedule a professional repair.
Another reason why a vacuum may be shutting off mid-use: a damaged power cord. If the cord is frayed or isn’t properly connected to the unit, it won’t receive the right amount of power, which could cause it to shut off. If you continue running the vacuum with a faulty cord, you run the risk of causing further damage to the machine. There’s also a chance that more serious problems could arise, such as electrocution or a fire.
If you notice an odd burning smell coming from your vacuum, turn it off and unplug it immediately! The cause of this problem is usually a broken belt. If you continue to run the vacuum with a broken belt, you could end up doing more damage to the machine.
While you can replace a broken belt on your own, it’s advisable to take the appliance into a professional. A pro will be able to determine which belt is broken and will ensure that the right belt is installed, and that it’s installed correctly.
A strange smell could also be caused by damage to the motor. In this case, a professional repair is essential. Only a professional will be able to diagnose the issue with the motor and make the necessary repairs.
Won’t Turn On
If the vacuum won’t turn on, there could be a problem with the motor, with the on/off switch, or with the power cord. A professional will need to inspect the appliance to pinpoint the reason why it won’t turn on. Once the cause of the problem is identified, a pro will be able to make the necessary repairs.
Many vacuum problems require simple fixes that any homeowner can do on his or her own; however, if you aren’t confident with your handy skills or you can’t figure out what’s causing the problem, it’s in your best interest to contact a professional.
The experts at East Hampton vacuums will diagnose the problem, make the necessary repairs, and have your machine up and running as good as new in no time! For fast, affordable vacuum repairs, call East Hampton Vacuums today!
