Sanitaire Vacuum Parts FAQs

What Should I Do if My Sanitaire Loses Suction or is No Longer Picking Up?
First check to see if the belt is broken, stretched out, and installed correctly. Also, check the hose and tools for clogs. Clear any clogs or obstructions. It is recommended to change the vacuum belts every 6 months to a year. This will keep your Sanitaire vacuum running at its optimal performance. Make sure the dust bag is not full. If the bags are not changed or emptied regularly it can restrict airflow and result in loss of suction. It is recommended to change the dust bag when they are no more than ¾ full. If the above still does not correct the problem, then take the vacuum to a local service center or call 1-800-322-2965 and Thinkvacuums.com will be happy to assist you.
Why is it important to Change my Sanitaire Brush Rollers?
Sanitaire brush rollers are a common replacement part. This is because of the constant friction between the bristles and flooring. Over time the bristles wear down and will not pick up debris effectively. It is important to check the belt and brush rollers every 6 months and always keep a spare around so you will never have to miss a day of vacuuming.
How Often Should I Change the Sanitaire Vacuum Cleaner Bag?
It is recommended to change your vacuum cleaner bag when it is no more than ¾ of the way full or there is a loss of suction. Fine dust, dander, and pet hair can clog the bag much faster than regular dirt and dust. When changing the dust bag regularly will prolong the life of your Sanitaire Commercial Vacuum Cleaner.

When the belt stretch, they will no longer turn the brush roller at the correct speed. This could damage your carpets over time if not corrected. A couple of signs the belts are going bad is a squeaking sound or a burning smell.
