I have an electrolux z1150 which is not sucking up as good as it used to do. Does anyone know of a vacuum cleaner repairer in nenagh or limerick they could recommend and who would charge a fair amount to fix it?

There's nothing quite like waiting up all night in total excitement for the courier to come with a brand new vacuum cleaner, he recycles your old one for free then you open the box, see it for the first time and turn it on for the very first time and suddenly your home is clean again, spanking clean.

It's like the first time you had sex, you never forget it.

If it's still sucking take the bag out find the filters and give them a good cleaning.

I know one in Dublin - Carraig Hoover Centre in Monkstown. It is the
only one I know of left in Dublin but are very good.

There was a time that every town had an electrical repair shop but we
became too good for repairs and disposed of old and bought new.

Throw it in the bin,it will cost you more to fix than it would cost to replace it.

ive bought 3 vacuums over recent years and none of them were as good as the old electrolux-if it cost me 60 to fix it id say it would be better than paying for a new one!

ive cleaned the filters and replaced bag. the suction is actually fierce good until you screw in the tube so maybe a new tube would do it-i cant find any leaks or blockages in the tube

Buy a Miele ,it will last you years.

Edit: Universal hoses and heads are very reasonable,might be an idea alright.

There's a place on Fox's Bow, I think it's the Vacuum Clinic or something like that. There used to be a place in The Roxboro Shopping Centre but no idea if it is still there.

Between William Street and Thomas Street, nice laneway pity there no bars there anymore.

Check filter. Clean filter. Check hoses for holes. Check any motor air intakes for clogging. Not happy...Take it appart as far as you're comfortable to check for what are usually obvious and easily fixable problems having to do with airflow. (a stick lodged deep somewhere collects thread and dust and blocks suction - excessive cement dust can clog intakes deep).

I'm often taking apart the old dyson.

Still no joy? Buy a new one as suggested!
