Question about Windsor SR12 Sensor Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

No power to sensor SR 12. I also have cleaned rollers and filters and bags. I have reset the handle. When I hit the power the check brush and full bag lights flash once. That is the only power that is getting through.The unit was in storage for a bit and got wet but its been drying off for a couple months. Is there something I can check or replace. Its a great Vac.

SOURCE: Bag Full Sensor

Opening The Unit:
Remove the hose, open the door, and remove the bag. Making sure that the door is open wide enough, pull the rubber strip on each side of the canister toward the opening until they are completely removed. With a little shifting, you will now be able to pry open the top cover from the bottom. Remove the obstruction sensor hose so that you can completely separate the halves.
Note: If the strips will not move toward the front, the you will have to slide them off to the rear. You will need two screwdrivers to pry open the top rear of the unit far enough to release the back cover.

Locating The Switch:
The "trip" switch is located on the inside top cover under the power button. The trip switch is activated by the sensor valve next to it.

SOURCE: windsor sensor says bag is full when its not

Are you vacuuming up fine particals like pet dander or just large amounts of regular dust? Also when was the last time you replaced your filters?

Just some sugestions.

It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

SOURCE: 'Bag Full' light indicates at 1/3 bag

The sensor is a small hole into the vacuum chamber. It moves the alert system as vacuum inside the unit builds up.

The filtration, built into the bag, is getting filled up and creating a higher vacuum inside the unit, giving a false reading. The only ways to eliminate this are to give the bag a shake to clear some of the dirt out of the filter, try to pick up coarser dirt first or buy generic bags-without the filtration.

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

What should I check to trouble shoot a Eureka 6865 smart vac making very loud whirring noise? Filter and bag are clean. Hose is unblocked.


Hi, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

I'd say at this point if you've checked your bag, filter and hoses it may be time to check your brush roll and belt. These two fast moving parts, when loose, damaged or just in need of replacement may occasionally give off an odd noise.

Turn the power wand over to expose the base plate that covers the brush roller. The power wand can get dirty and collect debris in the brush roller over time. The grinding noise may be something stuck in the brush roller, causing it to hit the edges when the vacuum is operating. Removing obstructions and cleaning dirt and debris collected over time should allow the vacuum to operate quieter. Unscrew the base plate cover with a Phillips head screwdriver. Lift out the brush roller and belt. Cut away any obstructions, such as string, hair or rubber bands, from the brush roller. Wipe the brush roller and belt with a damp rag to remove any dirt and allow them to air-dry. Wipe down the brush roller housing and inside the base plate with the damp rag. Any noticeable difference now once it's dried and turned on?

I have a Windsor Sensor s12 and power shuts off after 5 min. of vacuuming. I'm wondering if it's overheating of if there is some other sensor that causes it to shut off.


Your Sensor most likely has an internal heat sensor that is shutting off the motor. Some vacuums install an external heat sensor with a reset button that you must push to re-start the vacuum. If your model does not have an external reset button it is most likely a sensor inside the motor. If it is defective the motor must be replaced to solve the problem. But first make sure the overheating is not being caused by a blockage somewhere or the bag is too full. Air must pass completely through a vacuum starting at the floor where it picks up the dirt through all the canisters, filters, bags, etc. and then is exhausted from the vacuum. Any restrictions or blockage can cause the motor to over heat.

I have a kenmore progressive vacuum with a belt reset button that trips out everytime you try to vacuum. It does it in about 5 to 10 seconds. Can I bypass the reset button or can you help me determine...


A lot of times the reset button is tripping because there is a problem. The problem could be with the brush roller in this case. A lot of times I see this unit for repair and the end of the brush is so compacted with hair and debris that it has also started to melt. This will also "fool" the reset and trip off. If you are near a service depot try there, or try sears parts if you need to have the brush roller replaced.

Bypassing the reset button is not advisable on any machine.

Will not pickup


Hi, what you need to do is check for suction at the inlet hose that detaches from the roller brush. If you have real good suction there and you plug it back in to the brush, it should pick up if the roller is turning. Turn it over to see if the belt is on the motor and the brush will roll when it is turned on, but be very careful not to get you're fingers near it! If you have no suction from the hoses, you have a blockage in the hoses. You can take the hose loose and try and run a long broom handle, it may be long enough to clear what ever is caught inside. Its just a matter of cleaning all hoses and making sure the belt is not broken and the bag is not full if it has a bag. Let me know what you find.
Sincerely,

I have a model 116.35922 beltless drive vacuum. The agitator brush will not turn with the vacuum running and the handle down. The brush turns by hand and the reset button has not popped. Ther is nothing...


I just had the same problem. The roller will not turn if the unit is overheated. I discovered that my bag was too full. I changed the bag then the roller started turning again. I don't know if this is true cause and effect, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Picks up dirt and releases it elsewhere


don't know what you have but if its a bagged vav then the bag might be full or your intake hose at the bottom might be clogged.check the brush roller and see if there is alot of hair or carpet strands wrapped around it.if its a bagless then take all the filters out and clean them real good.clogged filters will cause that problem also.

Vacuum roller stops at half tilt.


You need a new belt. Belts will stretch to the point that they won't turn the brush roll under load, they will just slip. Check the brush when you change the belt to make sure the ends turn easily, if not, then replace it also.

There is a no filter safety device part #1130912-01, maybe the new filter isn't in quite like it should be or this device has gone bad. Also check the brush roll and make sure it turns easily, if not then that could be the cause.
