    this vacuum does not have suction, and instead spits dirt out into the air.

    I have this problem too. Why should purchasers have to do all this figuring out?? Try making product better in the first place or have a rep. available to come to home and fix it! That's what 'customer service' used to be like in my young days.
    I have used my Altima maybe 10 times max in the 18 months I've had it.
    Useless modern products - back to using 35-year old Filter Queen which has NEVER had a problem.

Hi
Sounds like its blocked. Check under the glide plate and the hose. Look in the book for model specific details

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

The belt is probably worn, stretched or broken that is why it is not picking up. Here is a link to the owners manual which has instructions and a link to the belt you need.

Vaccuum issue


If the dirt being vacuumed is not going into the dirt cup, then it must be just stuck in the hose and evenually will clog up. Check the hose and see it there is a clog in it, otherwise you have a years warranty on a new vacuum, take it into a warranty shop and have it checked out, take proof of purchase with you.
