SOURCE: Hose has no suction

Most uprights need to be in the up-right locked position to enable the hose pickup.

SOURCE: Motor runs fine and hosed not clogged will not pickup dirt

Check your fan for damaged or worn blades, then following the flow towards the bag check for blockage. Does your bag inflate when the vacuum is on? If so, it is less likely that you have blockage, than it is that there is an issue with the fan.

SOURCE: No suction from base or hose attachment

Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

It has lost suction


Have you got suction just before the motor? How about air coming out the exhaust?

Loss of suction on my Vax Air Pet 3. All filters and hose clear and belt spinning. Ideas/help appreciated - thanks!!


Sounds like a clog in the plastic that the hoses are connected to. Take bottom off so you can get in with a wire with a small hook and run all the way to the bag you might have to work from the bag opening down too. You should find a big wad hiding some ware in the housing this is an all to common problem with most brands of this type of vacuum.

Hoover dm6200 blowing air


check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage.
Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

No suction coming from the bottom of the vacuum


9 times out of 10 there is a hose blockage at the point where the hose bends down to the floor. remove the suction hose and clean and clear any dirt build up inside the hose. also at this point it is a good idea to clean the filter. ( remove and brush out or use a air compressor to blow filter clean ).

When we plug in the hose the motor in garage runs but no air or suction comes out of the outlets. we cleared all the lines too.


Check to see if you have suction at the unit. If you have suction at the unit, your pipes are stopped up. If you don't have suction, you have a pipe loose under the house. Also you could just have a stopped up hose

Low suction at end of 30' hose, after I snaked the hose


Snaking the hose won't change the suction unless you pushed an obstruction deeper into it. Try dropping a coin through the handle and shake it through to the other end. If the coin stops it will rattle at the obstruction. If the coin passes through your issue is either and inlet with the door ajar or a loss of suction due to an obstruction in the pipe or a leak at the machine, either the gasket or filter or similar. Post back.
To test each inlet for suction, mark a tissue with a # for each and move your hose inlet to inlet , then go to the pail and see what came through.This will help to determine if you have a blockage in your main line or a branch of the internal piping.

Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again


I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if any) is clean. All "airways" of vacuums need to be clear of any blockages, since airflow is what makes vacuums work.

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.

No suction


1, Does the blower (discharge) side blow bunches of air??
Yes: Something is clogged from the bag to the hose end. Try blowing out the hose from the discharge side.
Or: The bag is not properly seated. Make sure that the plastic piece is properly inserted into the bag, and properly aligned and locked in place with the suction intake.
No: Something is wrong in the motor/fan assembly.
2: The hose has a plastic cover on the end farthest from the unit. Make sure that this cover is closed. If it is open, your suction will go way down.
