I'm not sure what model you have, but the most common problems I've seen with these are that the hose gets clogged. Usually the hose is removable. If you can get it off, you may be able to push the clog out with slender rod or yardstick. If you are fortunate enough to have another vacuum with a hose, you can also **** or blow the clog out of the dirt devil hose with the other vacuum. Good Luck!!

Brush does not turn. suction with the handheld unit it fine but when used as a floor sweeper it hardly picks up anything


these stick mmachines do not have a tremendous amout of suction at the best of times but if it has a full bag, or full dirt container, or dirty exhaust fiters it will take away from the air flow as well. take a flashlight and look up in to the tube of the floor attachment to see if you can see something blocking the tube.If there is no obstructions it may have a roller bar that spins on the bottom , so turn it over and turn it on and if it has a roller bar and it is not spinning it probably needs abelt . If there is no roller bar and no blo0ckage chances are it is just weak at the floor tool as the air a further to travel all the way up from the floor so it takes away from the air flow again. good luck.

Have a hoover model F5914-900 it wont spray anything out the hose attachment. The line isn't clogged any ideas?


Yes, one thing to try: With the hose attached, place your hand over the suction opening at the pick-up end of the hose. Then pull the trigger. The pump is suction driven, and if there is air in the water line in the hose, that is known to allow th hose to prime in about 10 to 15 seconds.

Vacuum not picking up dirt


The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Suction is so light when using attachments will not pick up anyth


If there is no obstructions, its probably the motor has burnt out or shorted, causing loss of suction. Good luck.

Floor attachment does not suction, no clog in the hose, hand held works when dettached from floor attachment


Have you checked the floor head? Use a pipe cleaner or twisted metal to carefully and gently see what's in there. It sounds like dirt or something has definately sealed up the main suction channel.

It has been cleaned , yet there is no suction the hoover wont pick hardly anything up & it gets hot very quickly


Then there most be a clog either in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. If you pull the hose off like you are going to use an attachment, is there suction there. If not, then the problem is in the hose. If there is suction, then the problem is down below,
