Many vacuum cleaner problems aren't really problems at all, but oversights. A majority of trouble has to do with belts, bags or clogged hoses; things that can be solved easily with little consequence or harm. When your vacuum will not start, always check to make sure it is plugged in and then make sure it is plugged into a socket that is working. Poor suction generally has to do with the bag being full or a clog in the hose. If the belt is broken, there will be problems getting the vacuum to move and you'll need to buy a new one. Once these issues are addressed properly, problems will be gone in a snap!
Simple repairs can be easy to do, however, certain repairs to motors or the housing of a vacuum can void a warranty if not done by a professional. Always read the owner's manual first; then have all major repairs done by a professional.
