My vacuum puts out stinky air

I tried finding all of the filters to clean them and all I've found is two. Is there more? I've cleaned out the hose and changed the bag. Is there any where else I can clean to get some better smelling air as I vacuum?

Loss of suction, sucking air through hole on side of housing. Whats causing this?


The air hole on the side is a secondary air release if the suction is not reaching the dust collector detachable bucket. I had this same problem, if nothing is clogged in the hoses try scrapping all the dust off the cylindar screen filter inside the top of the detachable dust collector, I didnt realize that my filter screen had so much **** on it so I cleaned it off and the vacuum worked like a charm. Now the air can flow through unrestricted.

I cleaned all the filters and it doesn't have any suction


Check the hoses for a clog. Sometimes the hoses themselves will get clogged and cut off suction -- other times it happens between the beater brush and the hose (within the cleaning head itself). If this is the case, when you turn on the vacuum it will make a higher pitch sound than normal, and sound like it is working really hard, even thought there is no suction. If you can't reach the clog, but you have found it in the hose, you can usually use a coat hanger to either loosen it up or remove it completely from the hose. If this does not work, you can try loosening the clog with another vacuum. Just use the second vacuum to reverse the normal air-flow through the hose ... sometimes this will loosen it up and get your equipment to work.

On the back of my lg kompressor vacuum below the retractable cord is a suction plug that keeps sucking in when the vacuum is turned on it is supposed to stay out the increase suction. what is the solution...


Remove the hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and you will probably find a large amount of debris lodged in the hose. That hose leads to an opening right behind the main roller brush. If you remove the brush, it is easier to remove any clogs that are inside the hose. Once you have checked that there is no clogs in that hose reconnect the hose and the brush. You should then remove all three filters and wash only the two filters inside the canister. The third filter is a HEPA filter located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum. Make sure you do not wash the HEPA filter.Clean it by tapping it inside a trash can outside the house since a lot of dust will come out of it. Once the other two filters are dry, put them back inside the canister and also jake sure that the canister is empty and clean.

Stinks!


Cleaning and replacing the bag may help-it sounds like it may have gotten wet at one time.You couls also sprinkle baking soda lightly over your carpet and that may help absorb odours in the system. If the hose is detachable and any other pieces you can wash them with a vinegar solution.
Hope that helps. tc

Losing suction filter clean,hoses clear,output blower good,but very poor suction


if the blower is much stronger than the suction, you may have an air leakwhere the cover fits on tank or possibly a warped tank or cover. feel all around the unit for air being drawn in somewhere besides the hose. try it without the hose on and block the inlet for a couple seconds to see if the unit leaks air in. also replace the filter , dont try to clean it, the pores clog and reduce suction and damage motor.

Scooba not picking up dirt


I have had the same problem for six months and finally found the solution.

The problem is that the air duct into the dirty water tank was blocked. The air flows up the black removeable hose, into the dirty water tank and out through the filter. With the air duct into the dirty water tank blocked, no dirt gets anywhere near the filter.

The black removeable hose is the hose in the base of Scooba that the instructions tell the user to clean after each use. Despite cleaning this hose after each use, plenty of cat hair and other dirt passed by the hose and got lodged above it on the tank side of the incoming air duct.

The air duct into the dirty water tank is formed out of the blue plastic the tank is made from. You can find it by looking to see where the black removeable hose lines up with the tank when it is placed on Scooba. It is the same diameter is a the removeable black hose so you can't miss it.

Getting the gunk out is tricky because there is a bend in the duct. I fished most of it out with my fingers and then poked a bendable plastic spoon handle to get further down the duct. I then flushed water down it and shook the tank to get more out. After cleaning, water dripped into the air vent would come out the dirty water tank drain hole with little resistance.

After cleaning the air intake duct I ran my Scooba and got dirt in the filter for the first time in months.

Hoover eite rewind vacuum has blocked airflow, how do i fix?


Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then the blockage is in the hose, unhook the hose and dig out the debris, if hose isn't blocked, then clean out the filters, if they get clogged, then air can;t flow thru them and you won't have suction. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then it is clogged down in the nozzle asm. there is an inlet by the brush roll and it comes up to where the hose plugs into. Clean the clog out.

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.
