Top Vacuum Cleaner Repair related questions

First, check the power supply, including your fuses and breakers. If the power is working fine, you may have blockages in your hoses and filters, or you may need to follow the recommended cooling time for your unit. If that isn’t the case either, check if the bag is full, if the switch isn’t working, or if the motor is dead.

This usually means that your vacuum’s hoses and filters are blocked. To fix this, clean the parts, and replace them if necessary. You can do this yourself, contact a professional from the store, or request a local vacuum cleaner repairs specialist via Airtasker. If you need the vacuum fixed ASAP, Airtasker can help you find an available specialist near you.

Overheating can be caused by a full bag, a blocked floor tool or wand, or a bent head piece. To start vacuum cleaner repair for an overheating unit, switch it off and unplug it from the wall socket. Empty the dust bag, clean out the tool or wand, and remove the blockages. Allow the vacuum to cool down for 30 minutes before trying again. If it continues to overheat, unplug the unit and seek help from a Tasker near you.

To do vacuum repair yourself, start by unplugging the unit and turning it off. Troubleshoot to find the issues with your unit. It may be a problem with the power, blocked filters, a full dust bag, or old filters. Afterwards, do the necessary cleaning and replacing of parts. No time for DIY? Don’t worry - it’s safer to book a vacuum cleaner repair service near you on our platform instead.

You can do this right at home! When you book a Tasker to take care of your vacuum cleaner repair needs, they’ll go to your location, bring all the necessary tools, and repair your vacuum right then and there. No need to bring the vacuum cleaner to a service centre or wait for it to be picked up. Just tap “Post a task”, request a vacuum service specialist, and that’s it!

This would highly depend on the model of your vacuum, as well as its age. Some models aren’t worth fixing after 5-7 years of use, while others continue to be repairable after this period. If you’d like to assess your vacuum, a Tasker can help you out. They may also be able to advise you on whether it would be more economical to pay for a repair (plus spare parts) or to buy a brand new unit instead.

What does a vacuum cleaner repair service include?

When you request a vacuum cleaner repair service through Airtasker, you can expect pretty much the same things you’d get at a vacuum repair shop - except that this time, the repair expert will go straight to your home! Though the specifics may vary slightly depending on the Tasker you hire, here’s what you’ll get when you book a vacuum cleaner repair service on Airtasker:

Vacuum repair: Tools and equipment

Like all our other handyman services, your vacuum cleaner repair expert arrives with the necessary tools and parts for fixing up your vacuum cleaner. This includes callipers, wrenches, pipe cutters, a belt fitting tool, drill bits, extension hoses, replacement cleaner heads, and so on. Since these will heavily depend on the type of vacuum that you have and the problem/s that you’ve been encountering, it’s best to detail this in your task post.

If you aren’t sure as to what could be causing your vacuum’s issues, your Tasker may do an assessment first, then purchase the replacement parts at the store on your behalf. 

Solutions for common vacuum cleaner problems

Some vacuum cleaner problems are relatively easy to troubleshoot and solve. These can include:

  • Lack of suction - the filter may need to be cleaned or replaced, or you may simply need to empty out the dirt bag. Sometimes, this problem may also be caused by a blocked hose, blocked blower wheel, or cracked dust cup. These parts can easily be checked, cleaned or replaced by your Tasker.

  • Broken vacuum cleaner belt - this requires dismantling and cleaning out any debris that is trapped in the bearings.

  • Brush does not spin - this can be caused by problems with the drive and cogged belts. Thankfully, they can easily be replaced by your Tasker. If these parts are in good working condition, a jammed brush roll may be the culprit. Your Tasker will inspect, clean, and replace this part if necessary.

  • Motor doesn’t work - your Tasker will most likely replace the electronic control board or drive motor if this happens.  

Repairing different kinds of vacuum cleaners

Taskers can typically repair different vacuum cleaner brands, including Hoover, Dyson, Shark, and even Euvy. To find an expert in your particular brand and model, you can indicate “Dyson repair” (for example) on your task post. This narrows down the many offers you may get, and helps you find the best Tasker for the job. Need a hand with something more than just appliances? Airtasker can also help you find gas fitters, plumbers, and other types of handymen services near you
