Hi,
Turn off the power on the main vacuum unit. Then thread a plumber's snake or stiff small gauge wire from the outlet you were plugged into when the dust cloth got sucked up. With any luck, you'll be able to push it through a bit or with a small bend at the tip of the wire, you might catch hold of the rag and pull it out. You could also try sucking out the line with a shop vac by fitting it tightly into the outlet and turning on the vacuum.

hope it helps.
please rate this solution.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How much do I need to spent to get a quality vacuum?


Cost isn't the main factor to get a quality vacuum. There are plenty of vacuums in all price ranges that may work great the first year or two. Some expensive vacuums have problems and require lots of maintenance. Most vacuums in the hundred dollar price range are good for about a year. Bagless vacuums require a lot more maintenance than a bagged vacuum. Filters must be cleaned frequently to insure good airflow, and the filters and belts should be replaced at least once per year on most models. Filter replacement on bagged vacuums is not as critical because the dirt goes into the bag keeping the insides of the vacuum a lot cleaner which makes it last longer. Some vacuums, Hoover Windtunnel for example are available as a bagged or bagless model. The bagged models perform much longer than the bagless models for the average consumer, mainly because most people do not maintain their vacuums properly. There are a few really great vacuums in the two to three hundred dollar range that can work great for 10 years or more with nominal routine maintenance. The best place to find one is at a reputable vacuum store.

My Dyson upright is approximately four-five years old. It is series number 488-US -D 82082. The individual tube connected to the handle sucks up, but the base vacuum will not suck up anything.


If the tubes work, but the floor cleaner part does not suck, then the channel leading to the compressor is blocked. There is quite a narrow channel leading away from the floor brushes that is prone to blocking. Try unscrewing the base to allow you to see up this channel, and scoop out any material that is jammed there- a piece of bent wire clothes hanger is good for this. Form a small hook on the end and probe away.

What is the best way to clean a fresh blood stain from a wool carpet?


Cold water on a clean cloth, blot with damp cloth, then with dry cloth, repeat, repeat, repeat until you do not see any red coming out. If you have a carpet cleaner flush it with lots of cold water sucking it up with your carper cleaner or extractor. A good professional carpet cleaner can prevent your spot from becoming a stain. Often you can use enzyme cleaners to remove blood but NOT on wool carpets.

How to Fix Vacuum That Lost Suction
If there's ample suction but the machine won't pick up material, check the hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the vacuum cleaner and inspect it for any cracks or holes. If any are found, use duct tape to repair them - it might not look great, but it does the job! Where there's a blockage in the vacuum cleaner, clean it out by pushing a long, thin object like a broom handle through the entire length of thre hose. You can then reconnect the hose and try the vacuum again. It's worth checking the hoses a few times every year for cracks or splits.
If everything else appears to be fine but the vacuum still won't pick up, take a look at the brushes. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and clean hair and other material from the brushes, especially at the sides.

Please elaborate on the problem in detail.. Your vacuum sucked up a 'dusting cloth" ? Your description of a 'ducted vacuum' implies it is a central vac system ...is that true? If not please explain what you are using? The more details the more likely I can help...

Hoover steam cleaner F5912-900 not sucking up water


Check to make sure that the lid locked down all of the way around. If yours has a foam filter on the inside of the recovery tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. There is a filter, from the bottom, has a red casing, remove it and clean it. Also make sure that the removeable duct in front of the recovery tank is in place.

Hoover steamvan cleaner F5807


If this has a duct part #38661003 (#3) that is supposed to be installed in front of the tank isn't there, then you will have no suction to pick up the dirty water.

If this doesn't use a duct, then either the foam filter (#2) is up all of the way, need to leave 1/4 in. gap from the top, or the rear of the tank lid is not locked down.
