It seems to be blowing the dirt away instead of sucking it in?


Sounds like it has blockage somewhere in it causing low suction, therefore brush 'blows' dirt away instead.

Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?


Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

Its a reverse vacum, not sucking up anything just blowing it everywhere. The belt is fine and the filters are clean. Please help.


Hi r_holdsworth,

You got a deal! 2in1, blows and vacuums....

Actually, when vacuums blow instead of sucking, there is a clog somewhere. Usually, it's something that has been vacuumed up.

If you can't find the clog, please reply back with your model number and I'll find an exploded view of your machine for you to look at.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Fro what you say, the unit is blowing instead of sucking, There must be a pipe that is connected to the wrong outlet. Feel where there is suction instead of pressure, that is where your vacuum pipe must be connected.

It seems to blow air out instead of sucking up


Remove the bag on top and the plate on the bottom. Clean out the air passages, top and bottom, looking for a clog. When it seems clear, turn on the vacuum to see if air is moving through. Don't allow a full bag to remain in place Check the brush on the bottom for string, hair, or thread caught in the bristles or bearings on either end. Hope this helps!

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.
