Question about Eureka Whirlwind Litespeed 5740 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Dust blowing out of the side of vacuum

The vacuum has good suction and picks up well, but dust blows out the side where the allergen filter is...which I would assume is there to keep that from happening.
I took the filters out of the filtration unit and cleaned and dried both of them and replaced them and added a fabric softener sheet on top just to see how much dust was getting in there. One sweep of the floor and the sheet was filthy as well as the 2 clean filters and the outside of the vac. cleaner was all dusty. I have grandchildren with allergies so this is a real concern to me

My Bissell bagless vacuum does not seem to work anymore. It will start to with a suction and then instead of picking up the dirt, it appears to blow the dirt out almost in a cloud of dust and debris from...


this is caused by a dirty air filter and/or a blocked vacume hose ( most of the time the blockage is at the bend where the hose enters the floor sweeper area ) ---
remove and tap out and brush the filter ( or use a air compressor to blow out filter ).
then with the vacume on its side - remove the bottom plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a coat hanger and clean out the hose between the floor sweeper and where the suction hoes attaches. this will restore your vacume to full operation.

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.

Hepa filter stopped on Hoover Windtunnel 2 Model #U8361-900


This has a simple solution IF you have a air compressor with a high pressure nozzle. Outside the house, first remove the Dust bin completely and lay the unit down with the dust bin area up. now start blowing the nozzle at the hepa filter, Alot of dust will come out. Now start to rotate the filter while blowing the dust out. The filter will move one way easier, When there is no more dust reinstall the dustbin and check the suction and the rotation of the filter.

No air pressure to **** up dirt


First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

Blowing out dust


The reason most vacuums blow dust is because there is little or no suction in the foot of the vac. on this model, check to make sure that the hose is installed in the recepticle on the back to draw vacuum from the floor. verify the filter is clean, and there is no obstruction in the bottom foot.
