Modern floor vacuums are complex, intricate pieces of technology that must be maintained in good working order to do the job of keeping carpeted spaces clean. When your vacuum won't start or when it fails to deliver the necessary suction, installing new Craftsman vacuum parts may be your only option.
Of all vacuum parts, the drive belt is one of the most common sources of trouble. The ribbed drive belt conveys rotary motion from the vacuum's motor to its brush, which spins the brush drum and beats the carpet to shake loose dirt and dust. This belt can wear out with age, so check to make sure it isn't stiff, cracked or broken.
Blocked hoses are another common source of trouble that can rob a vacuum of its suction power. Usually, a blocked hose produces either no suction at all or very weak suction, which you can test by resting your hand over the nozzle. Regularly replacing the bag can help prevent hose blockage.
A faulty or worn out vacuum suction motor is a serious issue for people who need vacuum repair help. This motor spins the fan which draws fresh air into the system and provides the suction for cleaning. Repairs to this component are generally not possible, so a motor that runs hot or suddenly gives out usually has to be replaced.
