Blows dust and dirt out of brush area

My vacuum is sick! When I try to vacuum with it, all that happens is that it blows dust and dirt into the air. It does suck up some stuff, but leaves large clumps of cat hair afterwards. I have cleaned the hoses, filters, and changed the bag. What now? Sheri

Re: blows dust and dirt out of brush area

Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.

Why don't my robot brushes turn?

Remember that at least every week you need to take out the brushes, and pretty much everything else that is removable and thoroughly clean them, including the brush hubs. If you have access to compressed air, gently blow out dust/dirt from all the sensors. Regular cleaning is mandatory to keep your Roomba running correctly. In my experience, a good cleaning solves most Roomba issues. Regular cleaning prevents most issues.

Eureka vacuum blowing dust into the air

Check the leak (where the dust come from); maybe you need to tighten or reseat one or more part in that area.

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.

Dirt Devil bagless upright. sucks up dirt in the front and spits it out in the back. I have taken it apart to check for visible clogs in hoses and checked belt and rollers all of which are fine. what next?

There seems to be no vacuum drawing the debris away from the brush head. Remove the debris canister to check for air blowing into it. Check particularly, the area where the brush head pivots off of the upright portion. Hope this helps!

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces

lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

How do I change the belt for my dirt devil vacuum cleaner? It blows out dust.

To change the belt, take off the bottom plate, the belt runs between the brush roll and the motor shaft. But if it is blowing out dust, you may have a clog in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose.

Dust blowing out of my vaccuum cleaner

Usually when dust is blowing out it is caused by a clog, either the hose, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Check them and clean them out and you should be ok.

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!

Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
