Dear wymanwong

Righteo, your problem is not exactly all that straight forward as i dont have a great deal of information to go on with regards to this type of issue and this make/ model of vendored appliance, so I will begin by explaining how the typical vacumn cleaner functions (in relation to your issue) and what can cause a fault of this kind.

The vacumn cleaner overall (unless is a liquid cleaner as well as a conventional dry suction unit) has the function of providing suction into either a chamber or bag which is either filtered or emptied, and the effects of loosing suction usually are effected by faults within filters, or directly through the motor that is normally powered through 240V~ (AC) within the UK or
115~ (AC) USA. Suction can also be lost through blocked exhaust outlets through the vacumn unit and also through any perforations or tears to a bag/ container that is used in order to maintain constant suction and storage of particles/ vacumned waste.

Now to investigate the fault you have in regards to loss of suction within your unit.

Firstly You should query the suction motor and the copper windings as these are both electronic and mechanical components that can be affected not only by general wear and tear, but also by various ingressions (such as water and liquids). Also heat can play a major role here, as motors can spin up to a large amount of revolutions per minute (RPM) and this will cause heat build up, add this to the fact that the windings inside most electric motors are made of copper, and you can quite easily discover that the motor will "burn out" as copper will break down at somewhat lower temperatures than other electronic components (this is also more likely as the casing of a DC/ AC motor is contained within a steel structure which is a good store/ conductor of heat).

The other factor that should be considered with vacummn failures is also associated with exhaust impedances. In otherwords, if outlets and filter channels are blocked, then overloads through the motor wiill be likely and the entire system may cease altogether.

In addition to this, investigations of the power supply and any power transformers within the unit should also be queried, along with any rectifiers (used for converting an AC signal to a DC signal for use with DC motors if necessary), as faults with these can occour even over short periods of time.

If queriying these components have returned no results to the fault, then there is always the option of attaing the service sheets for your appliance from the manufacturer/ vendor of your appliance. The best thing to do in this case is either to go to http://www.google.com or to the website that is listed for your manufacturer/ vendor. Now if google if your option, then there are a few keywords which will assist in your search for your service sheets and they are to simply either type your appliance name followed by the words "service sheet" or "repair manual" In addition to this, you can always contact the manufacturer/ vendor of your appliance directly by telephone and delegate with them in order to request user manuals and servicing guidelines, and given the fact that you have a small appliance, if you mention that there is a possibility you would order any spare parts through them, then i really cannot see a reason why they would decline offering you the servicing guidelines/ manuals at a low cost.

Now there are other things here that can be investigated, but in order for me to dfo this i will need full details of your appliance model number and maufacture code, along with full details of the fault, as accurate as possible. Also photographs of either the machine or any/ all of the internal components will greatly help as direct visuals will aide not only in the identification of your make/ vendor model, but also may give a visual clue of what could be defective within your appliance (for example scortch marks on the wiring that supplies your vacumn motor etc) But any pictures supplied will need to be of a high resolution and quality.

Well I do hope that this brief explanation will provide enough information for a fixya or even a total unit overhaul in the most cost effective manner, in addition to this i do hope that i will hear from you in the somewhat near future as so i can find out more about your fault and indeed if you have managed to resolve it elsewhere (and even how this was done).

I am here most days and nights and any contact to and from me will ensure that I endeavour to resolve your technical issue in the most appropriate way for you.

In the meantime, i do hope you take care, and look forward to hearing from you soon

yours sincerely

First, check to see if there is suction without the hose on the base. If not, and there is no blockage, the problem is likely a damaged impeller, the small fan that makes the suction. That will have to be replaced.

Hello,
I believe the filter on your vacuum is clogged. Bagless vacuums require the filter be brushed or washed and dried, If they are not, the filter will clog, resulting in the reduction of suction. Clean filter about every 3 months or sooner if the same problem happens again. Hope this helps.

Hi,
It sounds like you just have a clog going on... maybe a sock or something. You might have to do a little disassembly of the roller to get to it.
Hope this hlelps... Good luck

Eureka lightforce 300 poor suction, power paw doesn't spin and self cleaning duster doesn't clean its self when the button is depressed.


When this happens to me I do two things. The first is to empty the cannister but when you do (with the vacuum unplugged) stick your hand up inside of where the cannister goes.Sometimes that is filled with debris. Pull as much as you can out. There is another part inside there that you can twist and pull out - this will help you pull out more of the trapped debris. Replace that part and the cannister - usually there's a blockage and just removing some of that debris will cause a bunch more to dump in to the cannister. You may have to repeat this process two or 3 times untill no more debris comes out when you turn the vacuum back on.

The second tip solution is to clean the filter which can be found on the front of the vacuum.There's a clear plastic cover, a black rectangular this that hold the filter sponge and inside of that, the filter sponge. I just rinse the little sponge inside and shake off the thing that holds the sponge (Sorry, don't know the technical terms). Put it back together and you should have suction - viola.

Hope this helps.

Eureka vaccuum blowing out and not sucking in


Hi There,
I am going to assume you are talking about a Eureka upright vacuum.
The cause for this is generally either
A) Broken Belt - Which you can easily fix by changing belt
or
B) Blockage in the hose somewhere - Basically test the suction with the machine turned on with you attachment hose and see if you have suction. If you do check the belt and make sure you clear out any muck left around the roller.
If you need Eureka vacuum belts go to VacuumSpot.com.au

I have a Eureka Contour model 2900 type A upright vacuum, the roller works fine nothing clogged, took it apart motor blade is free of debris, no suction from tube and blasts OUT air from the front HEPA...


Even with your explanation,it seems the hose is clogged.Try taking the hose off,then blow through it or pour water through it.If this doesn't do it,make sure the suction canals are going to the proper areas.

Usually this is either a broken belt or a clog in the tube that leads up from the brush head.

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.
