There is a valve in you lower hose assembly and chances are its broken. It is supposed to stay closed when upright and open when tilted. When this breaks it opens slightly or all the way and is diverting suction where you don't want it.

    Its a small but somewhat involved task. You have to remove the hood as well as remove the motor brackets and then you can lift the main body and remove the valve and replace it. I do not have pictures unfortunately. The part number for the valve is 43516010 and it will cost you about 16 bucks plus shipping from sears parts.

Low suction is either a clogged pipeline (very rare), a broken or open inlet valve in the system, a clogged hose or wand system, a clogged washable filter, the small screen behind the filter when removed needs cleaned, or the motor itself. Would need more detailed info. to pinpoint but hope it helped!

Tip

How to diagnose a clog in your Central Vac and how to remove it


Symptoms of a clog
Low Suction/No Suction
No suction at Inlet

Tools required
Wet/Dry Vac or vacuum with decent suction and a hose
Phillips Head Screw Driver
Metal Coat hanger (straightened out)
Flashlight

First things, first, make sure your canister is empty at the unit. I know, most people would have already checked this but I have been to a lot of client's homes and this was the issue. They were full or almost full. So just check it before you go to do anymore diagnosing. I suggest emptying it anyways, this way you can see what you clogged in your unit

Now if your machine has a utility valve on the unit turn on the manual over ride switch on and lift the utility valve and if you have suction your machine is fine, you have a clog. If you have no suction or poor suction
-Canister not attached properly
-Filter clogged
-There is a disconnect of pipe within your walls (I've seen it and it renders your system useless and is going to be expensive to repair the system)
-Your motor is going in your system (Your vacuum should sound like grinding metal and chances are it's throwing sparks and smells of burning electrical, turn the unit off immediately and unplug power cord) Your unit will need a new motor or you will need to replaced the whole unit. Sometimes can be cheaper to replace the unit.

So now back on track here, we are going to say the vacuum has great suction and is running smoothly.

Check your hose for clogs, easiest ways are to plug the hose into the utility valve and turn on the machine manually at the switch.
If you do not have a utility valve on your unit (this is where the other vacuum comes into play) plug your central vacuum hose on the end of the shop vac hose. Most hoses are standard and slip right on over the end of a shop vac's hose end (1 1/4 inch end). Turn on your shop vac and feel the suction at the end. It may not be as powerful as your CV but it should be comparable.

If the hose checks out to be free and clear we have a clogged system.

Now lets move to the inlets throwout your home, first we are going to plug our hose into the inlet that is nearest to the unit. If there is little or no suction we know there is an issue either in the distance between the nearest inlet or there is an open/broken valve.

Open/Broken valve (CV will not provide optimum suction with a open/broken valve)
-Plug the hose in and activate unit
-Check all inlets for proper seal, you will hear an annoying whistle or you will hear a gust of air from an improper inlet door closure. (Do this as quick as possible, if it is a clog you are putting strain on your motor, but if you vacuum on a regular basis chances are you know if there are whistling noises or missing pieces of an inlet. If you are missing an inlet door, replace the inlet. If all is checked out to be good, lets go back to unclogging again.

If there is suction at this inlet you know there is no clog between this inlet in the unit, try all inlets from nearest to farthest away. If you try your next inlet and have weak to no suction you found your point of a clog. This is where you will start to unclog your unit.

Take the hose end of your shop vac and insert it into your inlet. Turn the shop vac on and remove the hose quickly to create a seal and lose a seal. You should start to hear items moving through the line.

Now take your CV hose and insert it into this inlet, activate your CV and check suction if there is more suction, your slowly making progress.

Take a flashlight and look into the inlet to see if you can now see the obstruction. If you can, get your coat hanger out and go fishing. It may be easier to remove the inlet from the wall. Your basic valve is safe to remove. If you have a supervalve, do not remove, there is high current installed in the upper portion of the inlet for your power nozzle.

Repeat the Shop Vac suction and stop and the CV suction and stop until you clear your items.

This is going to take a few minutes of tugging between two vacuums. Eventually it will free if it went in, it has to come out. At the end of the day your basically playing tug of war between your Shop Vac and CV. But if all goes to plan, the clog will end up in your shop vac or in your CV unit.

Good Luck!

Valve sucks in and hoover loses suction


Your vacuum may have a suction release valve that is opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere.

My machine has suction at the port where the canister fits on the base, but immediately sounds clogged with no (or very little) suction going to wand or floor. All filters cleaned (accesible) and no clogs...


I will list the spots to check this vacuum for clogs. First see the first diagram I uploaded.

ironfist109_17.png

  1. First thing is to remove the canister.
  2. Then you will see in the diagram "A." Press that button and pull the hose up and check for blockages. Make sure to check for light through the hose to guarantee no blockages.
  3. Now tilt the vacuum forward and pull out the U Bend Airway and inspect it as well (3rd pic in diagram)
  4. Now squeeze the valve release catches to remove the airway and inspect the valve for blockages. (4th pic in diagram)

ironfist109_18.png

  1. The diagram above is the pre motor filter many forget to check.
  2. Press the filter release catch and pull the filter housing out.
  3. Remove the filter.
  4. Wash real good and let dry completely.

  • Now the one thing that tends to go bad on these vacuums is the automatic air flow adjuster. When the vacuum is upright the pathway for suction is automatically on the wand. After some good use the little disk in there snaps and the air flow stays restricted in what ever position the vacuum is in. I have contacted Dyson a few other time and they do not sell this part. It is a factory fix only or I would give you the instructions to do it yourself.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The low speed for bare floors won't work at all. The regular speed for vacuuming carpets turns on but spits items back out after a little bit.


An advice is more like it. What I do in a situation like that is to see if the air flows freely into the machine to see it here is an ubstruction or that the bag is full.. If that is OK II put the brush "down" and high speed on and sweepthe floor.
Then there is always the "troubleshooting" chapter in the manual. If the manual is lost in it´s printed form then look for Electrolux on the "net" there you will find your make, hopefully.

Decreased suction


you might have a clog, to try and unclog the lines, you need to unplug the unit, and remove the bag compartment. Then take a shop vac using the hose attachment hold it into the attachment door where there is low suction and try to draw the clog out the way it went in.

No suction


If you have low suction at the end of the hose, then you either have a clog in the hose or a clogged filter. Take the hose off and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then the dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged.

Electrolux central vac problems


I work on many types of units. If you electric floor brush runs but you have no suction then there is possibly a problem with the relay board that allows you to turn on the suction from the hose handle. This is a low voltage (24 V) switching loop circuit that will cause the 120 V motor in the unit to run.

Inside the wall valve are two brass pins. NOTE: there are 120V valves installed on some systems known as a Super Valve. A shock hazared exists if you work on that type of valve. That being said. In the round portion of the valve you can use a garage hose that has a 360 deg. chrome ring to test the valve. The ring completes the circuit causing the unit to power up and suction at the end of the hose. If the suction is weak, there is a colg in the pipe. If you hear no airflow, the relay inside the unit did not energize or the motor is bad.

To test: go to the unit and turn the switch on the side to "manual" if the unit turns on the motor should be ok. DO NOT RUN THE UNIT without and open valve. In some brands dammage to your motor will occure.

If the unit did not run, look for a small button near the switch. This is a circuit breaker for the motor. If it is poped out and you hear a "click" when you press it in there is most likely motor problems and someone should be contacted for repair.

Hope this helps!!

Loss of Suction

Low Suction/No Soap


Check the seal at the bottom of the dispenser, it needs to be on the valve not sitting in the hole, part 2101795 if you need to replace it. If suction is low, check the filter on the bottom of the tank lid, if clogged, suction will be low. Also check window gasket, sits between the tank and the nozzle window, if missing, you won't have any suction part #2104052.
