We have just purchased one of these and it’s almost impossible to vacuum our carpet with! It will only pull backwards on the carpet. We tried the two different suction strengths but it made made no difference. The two thin rubber strips on the on the gulper head get stuck in the carpet. Is there a solution for this?

My Pullman 900 will not start, one day it was working fine, the next nothing. All cords are plugged in fine, no blockages, filters are clean. It's 6 months old and used twice a week.

I have had my pullman for only a few months and love it but the plastic wings on the height adjuster that hold the straps in place have broken through use. Is this a common problem and is this something that is covered under the warranty?

Pullman
Pullman   DM

Absolutely love my Pullman but I'm just curious if the Rechargeable lithium-ion Battery for the Pullman PL950 would be able to fit onto the Pullman PV900 at all without having to buy the whole Pullman PV950 as I've only had my Pullman PV900 for just over a year

Pullman
Pullman   DM   

Hi Mikayla, Unfortunately the PV900 is not able to be used with batteries as this is a corded machine.
The batteries are only able to be used with the PL950.

Hello my name is Sam,
We run a cleaning business and use the Pullman Commander 900,very satisfied with the product as we are on the second one.
Only concern is how quickly the front filter darkens after first use,is this normal and appropriate servicing would be to blow filters out.
I would think not every use as we do multiple services per day.
Cheers
Sam

Depends on your cleaning environment. I often use another vacuum to clean the dirty or clogged filter on a regular basis

My gluper floor tool has just been fixed through godfreys as the carpet came loose. Now it’s squeaking when going over wood floors. Help! Which part is squeaking, why and how can I stop this please?

Pullman
Pullman   DM   

Hi Rosie, This may be the wheels as they are rotating, you can use WD40 as a lubricant for the connection.

Hi there, my vacuum has broken around the height lever. Can I have it fixed without sending it away? It’s still under warranty and purchased from godfreys

Pullman
Pullman   DM   

Hi Bec, We are very sorry to hear that your PV900 has broken!
You may need to clarify with your local Godfreys store if they have someone that can fix it for you - some stores have an in store repairer but for the majority of stores they will send repairs away.
Good luck with your machine!

Does any one have idea why the head of the Pullman 900 is very sticky to the carpet when it is used, please?

Pullman
Pullman   DM   

Hi Erickson, The suction may be too high on the type of flooring.
This machine does have to suction settings, to change between the 2 click the on/off switch up of down, you can also open the suction slider on the handle (yellow cuff).

I have a brand new Pullman, all great except the Gulper head squeals (really loudly) when I use it on wooden floors. I was under the impression the Floor head was designed for both hard floors and carpet. Any suggestions? Thank you
Fiona

Pullman
Pullman   DM   

Hi Fiona, We are sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with the head of your machine.
These heads are designed to be used on both hard floor and carpet, however, there are other heads available that have brushes on the bottom, see below link, and may work better for the flooring.

Take it back to where you purchased it from and let them hear the noise. My Gulper head doesn't make any squealing noised at all. I have found that the Gulper Head is very head to use on carpet, it drags quite substantially, I have to swap over to the Turbo Floor Brush to make the job easier. If you are going to purchase another head don't waste your money on another universal hard brush tool, just go and buy the powerhead at Catch of the Day for $49.95. see this link below, it's a bargain.

Hi, my Pullman vacuum is strangely not working. The pressure is going from behind the little hole in the vacuum, so the pressure is very weak to suck anything. Why is the pressure going from behind? Please help

Lyn Holland

Run a wire or something through all your hoses in case there's a blockage. Empty bag. Make sure nothing is stuck in floor tool

Thank you I will try to do that. All the air pressure is going out from my back when I carry it.

On the back pack there is a height adjuster. One of the wings on this adjuster has broken off. If I but a new harness does this plastic piece come with it as I can’t find it in spare parts anywhere

I can only suggest that you Google Pullman 900 and search all supplyers IE, Godfreys, Vacspares, My Vacuum Parts ETC. Good luck.

Our Pullman squeals from time to time regardless if the dustbag is full or empty. Filters are clean. Any clues on why these things squeal?

Clean the pipe/tube or the join where the metal meets the plastic pivot is getting old and leaking.

The rod is blocked, but I can't get it to come apart or remove the head to remove the blockage. What should I do?
