Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

My magic blue vacuum has no suction. The lid seems loose and the lack of suction seems to be related to the loose lid. I cannot find a way to tighten the lid.

I have already checked for any clogs and can find none in any parts of hose etc. Thanks,

SOURCE: bissel vacuum

take the dirt cup out and turn the bottom of it that will let you get to the filter,there should be some finger twist plates on the top,turn and take it out,there will be a foam cover around the filter,take that off and clean with warm warter,when done towel dry with paper towels,now the filter itself is water friendly ,take a brush and in up and down strokes ,clean while running water over it.above where the dirt cup goes is another filter ,just reach up inside and twist and it will come out,clean that also.now put the dirt cup back in without the filter and see if you have suction,i believe you will.let the filters dry before you put them back in then reassemble,and if that don't work, the take the hose off and see if you can blow through it .if thats not it then at the bottom on the right you will see a clear hose,thats your intake hose.there is a screw on the black fitting thats connected to it ,take it out and get you a coat hanger and bend the tip so its rounded ,thats so you don't puncture a hole in the intake hose.work the hanger down into the intake hose and push out the clog .then try it again..please leave feedback.i hope i was some help to you.iwould clean the foam filteres at least once a month

SOURCE: No suction - Infinity Shark Vacuum NV31C

You might try sucking the sose out with another vacum from the wrong way. You might be able to remove the hose and push a broom handle or stiff wire through. If you have compressed air available, you could try that, outside.

Im sure you have a clog and if you remove it, you will be back in business.

SOURCE: I have full suction with the hose and when the

So I have exactly the opposite problem, it sucks in floor mode but the hand held has zero suction. My daughter and i just spent the last hour disassembling and diagnosing and found this: The way the suction tube is configured, you have two places to **** from, the floor and the hand held hose. If you look at the back of the machine, you can see the "y" where the two hoses join. just behind the beater bar there is a blast gate that closes when you stand the machine upright. This closes the blast gate and directs full sution to the hand hose. In floor mode as the handle tips back, a follower wheel and spring move the blast gate to open. THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART...if the hose is not docked, there is a second place for the suction to go and you will get no suction at the floor. In my case, the center post where the spring mounts is broken and the blast gate flap does not close, so the hand hose gets no suction because it is like a straw with a hole in it, the air will seek the least resistance. In your case you either have not returned the hose to the docking port or your blast gate is stuck in the closed position. To check this remove the two screws and clamp that secure the lower hose to the suction manifold. Pull the hose stright an look inside to see if the blast gate is open or closed. Use the release pedal to cycle the machine between upright and floor mode and you should see the blast gate open and close. If you don't, well that's a whole other story. I'm off to see if I can find a replacement part at repairclinic.com. If not I will have to get some polyester epoxy and fix it myself.

SOURCE: Blue Moon Miele power head stops intermittantly

It is not a solid short. This is caused by static arcing in the wand and in the connectors from base to hose. I was able to fix mine by smearing some dialectric grease on all electrical parts in the wand(especially by the led switch) and in the three prong connectors at the base to hose. Have not had nay problems since doing this.

Why is my hoover agility not sucking up water


It is likely the recovery tank lid is loose. This means the suction is loosing. Worst case is the suction pump is faulty.
Look at this manual in the troubleshooting section.

No suction of hoover carpet cleaner


Might be a bad blower/impellar - you must disassemble to check. But most likely the lid on the recovery tank is not installed correctly allowing air (suction) to leak. On most models you can remove the solution recovery tank, turn the unit on and feel for suction where the tank fits onto the base (look for the round, black rubber type seal in the front corner that mates to the round outlet on the underside of the recovery tank.) If there is good suction at this seal, then the problem is an air leak, almost always due to a loose or incorrectly fitted lid on the recovery tank. Also, if you have a detachable insert (for attachments) on the front of the recovery tank, check that the insert is installed properly. If this is reversed it will not provide suction.

I cleaned out the hose and removed brush to clean and checked belt. Everything seems to work but will not pick up or suction on carpet. The hose is totally clear from clogs. I can see the floor from one...


Hi troupdavid,

I see that your Vacuum is having issues with it suction, you mentioned that you took it a part to clean it, see steps below.

  • Check if everything is inserted properly and is in place.
  • make sure the the Vacuum airflow does not have anywhere else to come out from, cause if there is, the vacuum suction will really not be really getting enough suction to be able to get dirt Off the floor.
  • Make sure the bag is correctly placed in the Vacuum and is tucked in properly for proper suction.
  • The hose should be twisted to be locked into Place, either clock wise or counter clockwise which ever makes it lock to the hose socket.
  • Also check the agitator shield beneath making sure that the Belt is not pinched in or squished by the Agitator and the Agitator shield, this can also cause lack of suction for the Vacuum.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your query.

Have a nice day,

Model F5892-900 Does not seem to be sucking up the solution/water. Is there something that may need to be cleaned out? If so, how? Thanks


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

Vacuum shrinks, power is still on but no suction


perhaps there is something stuck in the vacuum. Look where the hose fits in. There is obvioulsy no blockage in the hose because you have suction. Do the power brushes spin on the vacuum?? Take the bag off, and inspect the area the bag fits in for blockage.

It wont pick up with a new bag in and it seems to **** back in


Check if there is something stuck in the the suction tube, telescopic wand or in any of the parts involved. I had the same problem due to a number of chocolate wrappers stuck in the wand. I almost went and bought another one, luckily i had the sense to ask the salesman at sears the same question and he put me on the right path. The suction tube and wand are detachable from the unit, so you should be able to unplug the parts and check. This is the same solution if you motor is running fine but you have lost suction and\or bag shows full when it is not. Hope i am saving someone some money by stating the obvious here, just the way the sears salesman helped me.

Lack of suction on the main part of the vacuum


There are two easy things to consider if you have a lack of suction on the vacuum:

1. Replace the bag and check the hose leading to the bag to see that it's not blocked.

2. Replace the belt.

You may think that the belt doesn't have anything to do with suction, but it does. When belts are worn and stretched, they don't work efficiently.

Check the suction at the vac, without the hose, if it is strong, then you hose is clogged. If it is weak, filters could be the problem, one is the back where the bag sits, the other is on the top, you can see it when you raise the lid.
