Re: HELP!!!!!

The hose is probably clogged. It is supposed to blow out at the filter. It filters the exhaust air so you don't get dust back into the air.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside

Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

Blowing out instead of sucking in.

There should be a blow side and a vacuum side.You have the hose on the wrong side. If there are not two different holes, then there is a switch somewhere.

SteamVac Supreme Vacuum Problem:

Does this have the slot in front of the dirty water tank for the hose? If it does and the hose isn't installed, there is a block that you put in when the hose isn't being used. If not there, then it will blow air and won't suck up.

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.

You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
