Re: has no suction

I just went through the same thing.  Your fan or impeller is probably broken off the shaft and no longer on the motor shaft.  My local repair shop wants $9 for the impeller and $29 to replace it. You will have to take the thing apart and put on a new fan or impeller blade and I'm still trying to do that to my vac.  I think I will have to heat the nylon impeller with a hair dryer to get it onto the shaft and then tighten the left hand nut. My vac is held together with torx screws so add a torx screwdriver to the price if you don't have one and want to do the job yourself.

No suction

I presume the motor is running, take the front brush roller off and check the fan is still intact. Possibly broken fan.

Eureka vaccuum blowing out and not sucking in

Hi There,
I am going to assume you are talking about a Eureka upright vacuum.
The cause for this is generally either
A) Broken Belt - Which you can easily fix by changing belt
B) Blockage in the hose somewhere - Basically test the suction with the machine turned on with you attachment hose and see if you have suction. If you do check the belt and make sure you clear out any muck left around the roller.
If you need Eureka vacuum belts go to

My 5200 hoover spin scrub all of a sudden stopped sucking in mid clean.i took the front clear cowling off and checked for blockage but couldnt see anything.there is nothing to these thiings,they are...

Most likely your vent for the suction container is plugged or the suction hose can of or is broken at the connection to the tank nozzle (very common on these. Clean the machine thoroughly, and check that all hoses are tight and connected.

No suction

Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

No suction when vacuuming, but suction is good when using hose

check for blockage from where the hose sets in its
holder to the roller brush. Also see if the brush is
turning, the belt maybe broken.

Suction/Brush not working

Hi there SmartAlec from here.
There are a couple of common reasons that your electrolux vacuum cleaner would appear to have lost it's suction. The first and most common is that it has actually broken a belt. If the belt is broken the brushes won't spin and it will not pick up dirt. It is easy to test simply turn the vacuum on, release the handle (as if you were about to vacuum carpet) and lift up the head and see if the brushes are spinning. If not i can supply you with a new belt.
If the brushes are spinning then your next most likely cause is that there is a blockage in the vacuum somewhere. Test this by turning machine on and checking the suction at the hose (as if your were going to vacuum the couch) if it is poor then remove hose and fish out blockage. If it is ok you may have a blockage between hose and the brush of the vacuum.
If it is neither of these problems i can trouble shoot over the phone if you live in Australia 0269215200 or by email
Happy Vacuuming.. :)

No suction

You have a clog somewhere in the vacuum. Check the hose and the little trap door on the underneath side of sweeper.
Does the brush turn? If not, then the belt that drives the brush is broken. Replace the belt

Kirby G4 without suction

change your belt, if there is suction from the hose, and you cant see any blockages in the area where the brush roll is then you need to change the belt, even if it isnt broken. putting your hand over the nozzle to feel the suction is not the way to tell if it has suction.
