SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: Loosing suction

Well you did not state what model and brand this is, but usually if the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll gets clogged, then you lose suction. If you can't figure it out, usually there is a year warranty, take it in for warranty service.

No suction of hoover carpet cleaner


Might be a bad blower/impellar - you must disassemble to check. But most likely the lid on the recovery tank is not installed correctly allowing air (suction) to leak. On most models you can remove the solution recovery tank, turn the unit on and feel for suction where the tank fits onto the base (look for the round, black rubber type seal in the front corner that mates to the round outlet on the underside of the recovery tank.) If there is good suction at this seal, then the problem is an air leak, almost always due to a loose or incorrectly fitted lid on the recovery tank. Also, if you have a detachable insert (for attachments) on the front of the recovery tank, check that the insert is installed properly. If this is reversed it will not provide suction.

Hoover Windtunnel model U5491900air isblowing out of side filter no air coming into bag


The bag chamber is not sealing properly. Turn on the unit again, block up the hose with one hand and feel around the bag door to determine where the suction loss is coming from. It could be near the bottom of the door where one of the tabs have not been inserted properly. Good luck!

No suction and performance indicator light is on


You probably dnot have a proper seal. When you change the bag make sure you close the vauum body tight. Any leaking of air will cause the vac. to lose suction. Vacuum simply means no air. Turn the machine on then listen or try to feel if there is any air escaping. Hope this helps, Chris

Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter,...


One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place. Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again. If it does help, please remember to rate me!

When in the up right position the dyson looses suction then begins to take in air just above th filter at the vented area


It sounds like you need to follow the hose and make sure it's connected to the vacuum properly, and make sure all the fitting connecting the hose to the vacuum are sealed good. It's best to wipe the rubber gaskets between fittings with a damp cloth to ensure a good seal.

Beam Soft Touch handle electric harness replacement


Set the bottom part of the handle down(not the part that the screws go in)the contact board will fit into slots on the left side of thehandle half, the switch will go where the cutout is for it on the top, the plug is notched to fit at the lower front part of the handle. Then put the the tube into the hose and set it into the handle. There is a ribe near where the tube sticks out of the handle, it fits into a slot just before it sticks out. There also is a stop for the hose to up against so the contact rings can't slip off. Then put the other half on and screw it down.

Leaking Solution Tank/Seal Install - Hoover Steam Vac


Not sure this will help, but we have a Hoover Steamvac F5843 and our valve seal seemed to have shrunk so the tank was leaking. Bought a new seal and had the same problem. How to install? There weren't any instructions or pictures of the part(s) involved in the manual. Online there were a few pics but nothing helpful. After careful examination of the existing part and where it was supposed to be, I removed the original off the valve stem, placed the new one on it and carefully pressed the valve stem with the seal into place. It didn't look quite right and we were thinking "now what?". My wife and I got the idea at the same time...install the clean water tank (with the stem & seal in the bottom) back onto the steam cleaner. I took it back off to see what the stem & seal looked like afterwords and voila...the seal was perfectly inserted where it should be and the tank no longer leaks! The 'peg' that presses up on the valve stem pushed the seal perfectly in place.

Poor suction...continued


Wish I had it in my shop, it is hard to figure your problem. I do know that you must have something out of place and you may have to take it apart to find it. You may feel some suction there at the top of the clear nozzle, but maybe it isn't strong enough to pull anything up, but you may have a problem witrh it not seating all of the way on both sides, and you ,maynot feel much there anyways. Check at the bottom where the tank sits. is the seal ok. With the tank off, is there alot of suction at the filter screen? If there is, then the problem wouldn't be inside. Is the hose door on the back closed tightly? How old is this unit, if less then a year, then it is under warranty. There is an automatic shutoff for suction when it senses that the tank is full, maybe the problem is there. I believe it is the float inside the tank.

Bissell 1698 Powersteamer no spray


A simple thing to check is make sure the round seal is on the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank not sitting loose in then hole that the tank valve goes into. Could be a problem with the flow indictor cap leaking air. Is the top and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the plastic breaks loose and the top will rise enough that it raises the tank so water won't flow. Your pump may be bad.
