If you can safely remove the whole hose the best way is with compressed air or I sometimes use a long flexible wire to pull it out.

The hard plastic on the ends is pressed on and not intended to be removed, careful with that.

Miele vacuum.. my vacuum is on but no suction at all. help pls..


Had no suction on my miele upright. Turned out to be obstruction in hose as marked below. Before taking the back off try the simple things first, full bag etc.

You need a torx screwdriver with a long thin handle. Lay the vacuum on its back, open the front, remove the bag. Hinge the cover further open, pull the cover sides slightly out and cover can be slid off.

Remove these screws

And these

Now you can turn the vacuum over. Pull the handle out, and the center back section will hinge out at the lower point arrowed, be careful here not to break the tabs where it hinges.

On my vacuum the obstruction was clear to see in the hard plastic end of the hose, and could be removed with long pliers.

I just changed my bag and now it is squealing and the red bar is in window?


It would seem that your vacuum is clogged, hence the change bag indicator. Pull the hose out and and remove at the swivel connection at the base of the hose.You can use a small flashlight to check the hose, lay the hose on the floor with the light at one end and look for light at the other end. I know the grip end is curved but you should be able to see some light. Check the rear port by removing the cover located near the base, on the rear side, close to the hose swivel. Unscrew the 2 plastic screws and lift out the cover; check for a clog here. Next lay the vacuum flat on it's front and shine the light behind the brush roll and up the short black internal hose. Facing the metal sole plate, the hose should be near the right corner. Good luck.

I have an old Miele canister vacuum and I do not know how to disassemble the hose to check for a clog. I think it sucked up a nerf ball the size of a ping pong ball. I changed the bag but it did isn't...


Hi Emily: If you have the model number for your machine you may be able to find your manual on the Miele website. Check here for older models Here for newer models.

In trying to isolate the clog it would be best to disassemble the wand and hose to more easily isolate the problem. If the problem is a ball it is quite likely lodged at the first elbow

Generally, to detach the suction hose from the canister press the release buttons at the sides of the elbow and lift the hose from the socket.

To release the handpiece from the wand, press the locking button and pull the handpiece away from the wand. Similarly if your unit has a floorbrush this can be detached by pressing the locking button and pulling the wand out of the floor brush.

You may need to insert a wire from the canister end to push out the clog or ball opposite to the direction it was sucked in.

If these directions are not helpful and you cannot locate the manual for your model, please reply with your model number as I may be able to locate it from other sources.

Thank you for using FixYa!

I have a Bissell DigiPro canister vacuum and it has no suction. It is only 4 months old. What would the problem be?


Probably a clog in the hose. Disconnect the hose at both ends. Drop a coin in one end and allow it to fall through and out the other end. If it doesn't, the hose is blocked. Plug the end of the hose into the blower of the vacuum and turn it on. Make sure the other end of the hose is in a plastic bag. This should clear the clog.
Also, check the power nozzle behind the brush. Something may have gotten caught in the elbow near where the wand plugs in.
A full bag will also cause this, or if there's a lot of fine dust in your area, clogged pores in the bag will act the same as a full bag.

Electrolux Super J model, bag light stays on and vacuum will not run.


Have you checked the screen filter below the bag? This sometimes gets clogged with fuzz and whatnot, resulting in the vacuum shutting off. To clean it simply remove the bag and use a pick or similar item.
A clogged hose will also result in the same problem. Try running without the hose. If the vacuum runs without the hose a blockage in the hose is a probability. However there could be a clog in the power nozzle above the brush, as well. Check the suction at the end of the hose. If very little there's a good possibility this is the problem. Double check by dropping coin in one end and allowing to drop through. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be cleared by plugging the hose into the exhaust port and turning the machine on. Be sure the other end is inside a large plastic bag.
Visually check wands to ensure they're clear. If not, push clog out with a broom stick.

My Miele silver canister vacuum has a clog in its hose. Can I fix it myself?


sure you can. get a broom handle, pound a large finish nail into the end and bend the nail into a hook shape. stick the broom handle in the hose which needs to be straight and use the nail hook to grab and pull out the clog. hope this helps you.

Clogged hose...


Hi!

Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
