Kenmore Model#116.51714111 Sereal #MD4753488 vac is very difficult to push on carpet when set on medium setting. Was not like this the first year we had it my wife swears. Replaced the dirt sensor module in wand and made sure the lenses are clean. Pushes hard with the entire dirt module sending unit removed as well. Just seems like there should be something at front of beater head to make it easier to push. Cleaned vac head and made sure all wheels are turning. What else should we try?

The beaters seem to hit the bowl when beating (not hard, but

The beaters seem to hit the bowl when beating (not hard, but there is the sound of the beater hitting the side of the bowl) in my kitchenaid stand mixer. That seems strange to me and it doesn't seem to get the material on the bottom of the bowl thoroughly mixed. I tried my tried and true divinity recipe today and that was not successful! Is it the fault of the raising the bowl to the beater rather than lowering the beater into the bowl? Is this normal?
