Wertheim x3000 motor running but little suction?


Check all of the filters. When there's extra heat, it's usually blocked filters.

If not, dismantle the wand and use long pipe cleaners or a bottle brush to clear any possible jams in the wand or head. Remove the hose from the main unit and if possible, drop ball bearings or marbles down the hose to try and clear any blockage. Remember to recover all of the ball bearings or marbles before you reassemble the hose and wand.

No suction when using wand on electrolux precision upright


There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
  1. Unplug the vacuum.
  2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
  3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
  4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
  5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
  6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
  7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
  8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

959bd34.jpg This is the entire assembly that you would need to replace. According to the technician that serviced mine, DC18 is prone to fail in this area due to owner's use or abuse in my case (LOL). He said forcing the handle to stand upright after you finished vacuuming puts a stress on the plastic hook that rotates the valve from floor mode to wand mode. The trick there is when you replace the handle to upright, you have to step down on the wheel to the floor. It cost me $70 to have it replace. Since I still have it on warranty, only the labor is no charge. The damage on my machine I admitted is not workmanship or material defect but improper use of the machine. I hope this helps. Just beware of some Dyson Authorized Service Center that wheel and deal you for something like, the carpet fresh powder caused your machine to clogged and blah blah. You will know if the problem they tell you is not even close to the ones I discussed.

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty

My Dyson dc 18 slim extender wand has NO suction. There is a plastic white cylinder object blocking.


If the floor head has suction and the wand does not, or vice-versa, the white cylinder you are referring to diverts the suction between the floor head and wand. If the flimsy plastic switch used to turn the cylinder is broken, you may need a new under carriage or just set the cylinder to wand or floor manually and use it as a one dimension cleaner. Depending on your ability, perhaps the switch can be purchases and replaced by a DIYer, but the job looks moderately difficult.

A Dyson dc 17 Animal and the wand/hose has lost suction


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose assembly from the machine, switch it on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If its good here, then you know that the wand handle is blocked.

For the full diagnostics, check out the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com or call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

its the ball cradle assembly. There is a little clip that changes the direction of the suction. that clip breaks all the time and causes the internal direction valve to stay in one position. unfortunately dyson doesnt sell these parts separate, you will have to purchase a new cradle assy. let me know if you need a part #

My dyson dc18 has no suction from beneath, but the wand has lots of suction.


The head is blocked by something, it could be a bottle top, rolled up tissue, or something like that.

Take it off the end of the wand and look down the hole
'with a flashlight" where the wand goes into it..

You should be able to see it in there.

The object should be pushed out the way it went in..

Try using something made of plastic to push it out with...

Suction


If the wand alone causes a suction loss, there are only a couple of issues:
  • leakage
  • blockage
If it is leakage, remedy the defect or install the wand correctly.  If it is a blockage, you'll have to find and remove it.
