Accessory hose not sucking

When I try to use the accessory hose, it works for a second, and then a loud sucking noise comes from the top air hole on the main part of the vaccuum, (the hole near where the accessories are stored) and the hose stops sucking.

    The same thing happens to me, except I get a little suction through the hose. The sucking noise is from the bypass hole on top. I can only guess I have an obstruction in my cyclone or hose, but I know my hose isn't completely blocked

Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!

Dyson dc24 - just tried to use after being in storage, making loud noise and seems to be blowing out rather than in. Maybe a part missing? The hole at the top of the bin attachment is sucking air...


The wand attachment at the top is supposed to only suck in when it\'s in the upright position, otherwise the suction should be used when the vacuum in rolled on the carpet/wood/surface.

If it\'s still under warranty, contact Dyson directly. This site may help: dyson.com/support.aspx

I hope that helps.

Electrolux Vitesse petlover 1700w loud noise


So all that is left is a blocked filter, ie paper like the ones in a car, remove- wash bash out the dust etc- I use compressed air to blow them oput backwards. If it is bagless there has to be a filter somewhere otherwise everything comes straight out.
I would also be looking at hose obstruction and leaks in the body of the system - assuming it still sucks well enough. I often remove the hose and drop a heavy steel rod or the like down to shake out the hose. I have a lot of this with saw dust on the shed cleaner.
If it were mine I would then pull it apart to look for bockages or bits caught in the fans. But do not do this if you are not confident of reconstruction safely or if there is a warranty available.

My Shark navigator is making a very loud swooshing sound out of side of canister.


I had the same noise coming out of the side of the canister although I would specify it as a sucking noise. The noise is coming out of a hole on the side of the canister. If you block the hole it sounds normal. This lead me to believe that there was no damage. After further research I found that this whole is actually a release when air cannot make it through the top of the canister. Simple resolution. Take the canister out of its holster and clean both the top part and the metal cone inside and your vacuum will work good as new :) ~=MaGiC=~

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking...


I believe on the front top part of the vacuum is a cover. you need to take it off. behind it you will find at least two filters. You will need to replace the hepa filter and the other one should be like a thin black sponge, you can just wash that one.
If its not that then there are two clips on either side of the base of the vacuum. Pull those clips outwards, then lift the top off, you will see the tube that the hose attaches to. Pull the hose off and check for debris in there.
I hope that works for you.

good luck

No suction in wand after few seconds


Check the inspection air ways as dirt can often get clogged if the bin assembly hasn't been fitted correctly. check that the seal cone is properly fitted before locking the whole bin assembly back in and check that the motor filter has been correctly placed.

Loud whistling noise from back of vacuum


On the back side of most kenmore vacuums, there is an air relief diaphragm that, when the motor is sucking but there is no air flow, will pop, causing the sound you heard. check your hose for blockage, check your bag and or filter for blockage,even your attachments/wands can become lodged with debris. Often, after a few, the motor will get hot and the machine will shut down. This is a thermostat on the motor that protects it from overheating. I am quite sure that this will solve your kenmore woes, fine choice in vacuum, kenmore, tried and true. hope to have helped! Have a super, and hopefully sucking(ha ha) Sunday

Vacuum making loud noise (like hole in tube)


I have the same vacuum - it's a clog in the brush area, or where the hose connects to the base. Unhook the hose, like you're going to use a tool. Lay the vacuum flat, so you can stick something in the plastic tube (at the base where you disconnected the hose) without the awkward angle. I use a dryer vent cleaner, but you could probably use a wire hanger. Push through until it comes out through the brush area...should fix your problem.

I have a dyson that is picking up just fine when on vacuum mode, however when I try to use the suction tube there is no suction at all. It is not blocked and the canister is empty. Help!


Hi, I have an upright DC03, brilliant machine. Mine wouldn't **** and had the following symptoms;
- it sucked ok from the top hole where the canister joins the unit - with the canister the dust didn't spin aroun inside the canister like it normally does and there was no **** at the hose end or brush end. - with the top of the canister attached (the cyclone) but not the bottom it sucked through the cyclone - the small valve on top of the cyclone unit was sucking heaps
this indicated to me the machine was sucking through the cyclone unit but when the canister was put on it was blocked - hence the tremendous sucking through the valve on the top of the cyclone. As far as I could see the cyclone wasn't blocked so I poked some wire down the tube inside the machine that runs from the bottom of the unit (where the hose sits) up to the bottom hole where the canister joins. 
The DC03 has 2 holes where the canister attaches, it seems like it sucks air through the top hole, through the cyclone and through the lower hole sucks the dust up this inner tube into the canister. Check that tube, shine a torch from the top hole and you should be able to see the light at the bottom. Make sure you clear it completely. 
Mine was very very blocked. I kept poking and removing dust until I could see light at through the tube. Works fine now.
Hopefully this helps someone as it took me awhile to work it out. 
Good luck

You may have a clog in the hose or the inlet by the brush roll. If they are clear, then the nosie may be coming from your motor and will have to be replaced.
