3 Solutions To Common Vacuum Problems

Your vacuum is an important part of your housecleaning arsenal. It's a powerhouse that sucks up dirt, dust, and cereal crumbs that your kids may have ground into the carpet. A good vacuum cleaner is an investment for your home, which is why you purchased a Windsor Sensor vacuum. But even the best vacuum will eventually need to be repaired. Luckily, most problems may be easy to fix at home if you have the right parts. Here are three solutions that can fix the most common problems with your Windsor Sensor vacuum:

1. Change your filter.

If your vacuum isn't sucking up dirt as well as it used to, a clogged filter is the most common culprit. Remove your vacuum's filter and replace it with a new one. In most cases this will be enough to restore your vacuum's full suction capacity. To prevent this problem in the future, make it a habit to preemptively change your vacuum's filter every few months.

2. Fix your motor.

If your vacuum won't function at all, you should first check to see if the motor is receiving power. You'll be able to tell if your vacuum is receiving power by the indicator light. If your vacuum turns on but doesn't seem to run, the problem probably lies with your motor. If you're handy, you can take the motor apart to see if you can identify the problem; internet videos and your vacuum's instruction manual may help. By replacing the faulty part or parts in your motor, you should be able to get your Windsor sensor vacuum running once again.

3. Change your thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse in your vacuum cleaner is there to prevent your vacuum from overheating. If your vacuum shuts off randomly during operation, you should first check to see if it's overheating. If it is, that points to a problem with the motor. But if your vacuum doesn't feel hot during use, your thermal fuse may have worn out. Simply swap the faulty thermal fuse with a new one, and your vacuum cleaner should stop turning off during inopportune times.

When buying replacement parts for your vacuum, you should always purchase from a reputable store. Find a store that sells exclusively Windsor Sensor vacuum replacement parts, so you know you're getting original, high-quality parts that will last. If you're in doubt about the exact part you need, a sales representative may be able to help you find more information and select the correct part.
