Probably have a clogged intake from the beater bar thru to the vac system.. Try this.. with the vac unplugged, flip the vac over so you can get to the bottom of the vac head near where the brush rotates.. then depending on the model.. remove the cover to access the brush ( called a beater bar).
Once the cover has been removed ( may require removing several screws) .. look at the beater bar and make sure the belt is hooked up.. you should be able to lift that brush assembly out of the housing to expose the duct where dirt travels into the bag.. that path ( including the flex hose) is probably clogged up...clean out any debris found there.. ( if you have access to another vacuum..try sucking that junk out with it or use a stick or coat hanger to pry anything lodged in there out.. When that is clear, reassemble things and try it again.. Hope this helps you

Not sucking up the water


Look at the pickup nozzle to see if it's plugged up. There is a flapper valve that closes when the tank has too much water in it. Make sure it opens after you dump the water out.

Where do the filters go?


You didn't state what model so I can't answer where your filters go. Most vacuums have 2 or 3 filters that need cleaned frequently and replaced when they become restricted. Air must pass from the nozzle at the floor through the dirt cup or bag and filters and through the motor to keep the motor cool, then exit the vacuum back into your home. Clogged filters will shorten the life of the motor and your vacuum won't have near as much suction and airflow. If your vacuum is bagless You most likely have one or two filters filtering the air between the dirt cup and the motor intake to keep dirt and grit from being sucked into the motor which will cause premature failure. There is usually a HEPA filter filtering the air coming out of the motor. if you are seeing a lot of dust on your vacuum that is a sign you may need to replace the filters.

My power head is spitting out the dirt ,etc instead of sucking up. Auggggh


The most likely cause is a plug in either the hose, wands, or neck of the power nozzle. If there is a plug in the line, the brushes on the nozzle just kick the dirt around. Eliminate each piece by attaching the hose to the unit first to ensure there is strong suction at the end of the hose. Then check each of the wands. Lastly, look down the neck of the power nozzle. Many times items like toothpicks, pine needles, pins, nails or bottle caps will lodge themselves in the lines, causing dirt and debris to pack around them. Most plugs can be fished out easily, but some may require you to take the unit in to a vacuum repair shop.

No suction


open the tank where dirty water goes and make sure the float is down and not stuck ...when its full of dirty water the float raises with the water level so that the vacuum doesnt keep sucking and overflow

No dirt is collecting in chamber and doesnt seem to be picking up


the hose is clogged. try sucking the dirt out with another vacuum (backward) If this doesnt work, you will have to disconnedt one or the other or both ends of the hose to remove the clog. this is a simple process.

Not sucking up dirt off floor any longer


Chances are there is some blockage in the pathway from the floor to the bagless colllector. Use a flash light to look in the tube and straighten out a wire coat hanger to probe the areas you can not see.

Finally if your vacuum has a beater bar/brush that spins against the floor check to see that it is spinning. If it is not, that indicates that the belt which drives the brush is broken.

good luck.

I have a Eureka "The Boss" vacuum that doesnt seem to be sucking up as much as it should and did in the past when vacuuming on carpet and hard floor surfaces.


I have a Eureka "The Boss" vacuum that doesn’t seem to be sucking up as much as it should and did in the past when vacuuming on carpet and hard floor surfaces.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This could be because the vacuum has a clog or blockage, it may need a belt change every 4 to 6 months as recommended by the factory, sometimes the material you pickup on the carpet and bare floors will plug the pores of the inside if the paper bag or dirt cup filter, if the filter is clogged it looses the suction power or the bottom plate is not on properly or all of the above. These are some of the items to check when you lose suction.
