Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

Lost suction but no cloggs in line


see the solution; God bless you
How to determine a clog in your hose
Take your central vacuum hose and connect it directly to the dirt canister. After turning on the vacuum if the hose has normal suction here then the clog exists in your tubing.
Click here for help with tubing clogs. But, if you experience reduced suction at the canister then your hose is clogged. See Solutions below.
check.gifPlug hose in reverse into the inlet located on your unit and turn on the system. This should aspirate the clog out.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from the inlet and push a garden hose through hose to push out the clog. Most importantly, the garden hose must be turned off and there should be absolutely no water entering your vacuum hose.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from inlet and drop in a heavy object such as a screwdriver to push out clog.

My Hoover upright U5472-900 runs but there is no suction at all. I have taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned it.


Turn it on. Detatch the cleaning tools handle from it's mount. If it still has no suction, you have a plugged hose. Everything your vacuum does goes through that long hose. Take the 2 screws off where it attacvhes to the unit, then gently push a broom handle through it to release/loosen the clog. You should be able to see through the hose from end to end. Toys, tissue and pine needles are big culprets of clogged hoses.

There is a suction problem - the suction power is very low. The filter has been washed, dried and replaced but the problem is still there What is the problem? Thanks.


Something between the bag and the suction opening is clogging the vacuum. Start at the bag. Remove the bag and check for a clog. Remove the hose from the back and check for clog. Release the handle and turn the machine over to expose the sweeper bush. Check for clog. If you haven't found the clog at this point, remove the 4 screws on the brush cover. Then remove the brush and check the hose going into the machine. If the filters are clean the machine should have plenty of suction.

My hose no longer works no suction buth the vacuume still works how do i fix I checked the hose checked the filters nothing works to get my hose so it has suction.


Check the following after unplugging the power cord from the outlet.
- Check for suction at the back of the unit, after removing the hose where it attaches to the back of the vacuum. If there is NO suction, the machine will need to be taken to a local Service Center for inspection.
If there IS suction at the back of the machine with the hose removed, please check the following:
Unplug the unit from the outlet.
- Check the Pre and Post-Motor filters for debris. Dirty filters can restrict airflow. The pre-motor foam filter is square and located in a pull out tray underneath the dirt cup. The foam filter may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Reinstall the filter when it is completely dry. The post-motor HEPA Media filter is rectangular and located on the side of the machine. Note: The white HEPA Media Post-Motor Filter is not washable.
- Ensure the dirt cup is empty.
- Check the upper tank for build up or clogs.
- Twist the inner cyclone to the left and pull down
- Wipe the inside of the upper tank and separator plate with a
damp cloth moistened with water or mild cleaning detergent.
- Once the inner cyclone is dry, lock back into the machine by
pushing up and turning to the right.
- Put the dirt cup back in
- Check for good suction at the end of the upholstery hose. If there is good suction, make sure the hose is firmly connected to the lower hose on the back of the vacuum. If there is no suction at the end of the hose, check the hose for splits, cracks or clogs.
- Make sure the brush is rotating. If it is not, remove the access plate and examine the brush, and belt for damage. The access panel can be removed by lifting the 4 tabs located at the bottom of your machine. Lift tab 1 then 2-4 tabs to remove the access panel.

CLEARING CLOGS
- Detach the upper hose from the machine. Insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end.
- Remove the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit, and straighten this section of hose by pulling it down or lay the unit out flat, and roll the unit on its side with the lower house towards the top side. Look through the hose for any obstructions. Push a broom stick through the lower hose to unclog.

Can't get my bissel steam cleaner to sucktion


Check on board switch for tools only or vacuum, is switched to vacuum, as majority of vacuum suction power is diverted to hose/ hand held devices. See if vacuum hose has suction as well? The unit may be clogged with carpet fibresas well and the unit may have to be taken apart and cleaned thoroughly.

Hoover agility--poor suction, still!


When you remove the dirty water tank, on the machine, there is a screen that gets clogged and will prevent good suction, is this one clean? If it is, do you feel suction at that screen, if so then there is a problem with the tank. If no suction there, then you will have to check it over for a air leak or a bad seal.

Eureka 12 amp vaccum lost all suction how do I fix this?


There must be a clog somewhere in the line. I don't know this model, but if it has a hose, disconnect it and see if the machine has suction. If yes, then you know hose is clogged. If you don't hace hose, then you can try to take apart the air intake to unclog it. It is also possible that the motor runs, but the impeller on the motor is loose and is not spinning to create the suction. I would try checking and cleaning any clog first. Good luck!

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
