Vaccuum forms in hose- will not pick up dirt

I pull the hose out of the canister, it seems there is suction but it's not picking up any dust. Also, a vaccuum forms in the hose and I can't pick up anything. Please advise.

Check your wand for a clog. The DC17 line has common clog issues in its wand. It may be difficult to remove but if you have a long skinny pole(like one for curtains) you can use that to remove the clog.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

Suction not working on vaccuum.


Check for a blockage in the hose, or a tear / hole in the hose between the "pleats"

I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way...


Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find a large blockage of debris. Hope that helps!

Dyson DC17 Animal Not Sucking as Well as it Used to


I have had very good luck calling Dyson.

My machine seemed to be doing the same thing--but also dust and hair was building up on top of the filter after one use. I called Dyson, and they sent me a new canister--apparently something wrong with how it was sealing.

No Suction


Your Power head is blocked with hair or dirt,,or the hose which connects the Upright with the power head is blocked.
Try taking a steel coat hanger apart (straighten it out) and then push it into the pickup hose to remove blockage.

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.

Check your filter. Sounds like it is not receiving enough suction to pull up the debris. If your filters are clean and there are no clogs, disconnect hose from back by the tank and see if you have suction straight out of the whole.

My Hoover is picking dust , very poorly


The Telios has a bad design on the handle and it sounds like something has definately got stuck. Unfortunately the nature of the cheap European design means the handle can only be removed by someone who owns a vice in their garage without breaking the removal points. Alternatively find a long bamboo stick or pole to put inside the hose mount which connects normally from the main bin of the Telios (not the other way around up the handle) which has no sharp edges and push up and down vigourously to dislodge any clogged dirt which may have inadverntely got stuck either by the handle or in the hose itself.

Another thing to do is to check the suction from the Telios itself by removing the hose. If there is suction coming from the main dirt bag/bin door with the hose removed then there is no problem other than a clogged hose and handle. Hoover updated the handle and hose in 1999 and spares can be found by looking on Ebay.co.uk for cheaper prices.
