No suction + red light in my Infinity 24 cyclones vaccum

I took the vacuum apart, cleaned all the parts including the foam filter and the red light still goes on, and there is no suction. I am sure that everything is where it should be, but it is still not working. I am looking for any suggestions. Thanks!

OK. Lost suction almost always means blockage. You need to check all the pipework, the hose and any bits you can remove at the base of the machine - if I remember right, the DC17 has a sort of U shaped bend at the bottom of the handle that you can remove - also turn it over and inspect the clear flexible plastic tube (if it's not blocked, it can get damaged and leak). As for filters, you do of course need regularly to wash the filter that's above the cannister (wash both the blue sponge and the yellow carrier) and be sure they are dried gently for at least 12 hours before putting them back.  If you need new filters, any vacuum service shop should be able to supply them. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response.  Good luck!

SOURCE: No suction - Infinity Shark Vacuum NV31C

You might try sucking the sose out with another vacum from the wrong way. You might be able to remove the hose and push a broom handle or stiff wire through. If you have compressed air available, you could try that, outside.

Im sure you have a clog and if you remove it, you will be back in business.

Thanks for your interest in FizYa.com

Hoover nano cyclonic shut off while in use/no suction when turned back on


That is more than likely the problem, NEVER put wet or even damp filters back into your vac

If the filter is clogged would it quit working


Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

No dirt in cup and the red thing does not turn


Hello! It sounds like your vacuum has lost suction. This is caused by either a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Please try these brief trouble-shooting steps.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.
7. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to loosen and remove any clogs from the main hose.
8. Remove the bottom plate and the brushes as instructed in the owner's manual. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to gently break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

We have a30yr old electroux that has been loosing vaccum. i took it apart and found a black foam rubber althrough the cannister and on top. i guessu i8ng that foam has something to do with the vaccum.


The foam may be a sound suppressor. Your vacuum may need a new hose. Old hoses have a liner on the inside that can collapse. Try removing the hose and see if you have good suction on the vacuum without the hose on. If you do it. Means the hose is bad or clogged

We took the vacuum apart including all hoses and there does not appear to be an obstructiobn, what is causing the vacuum to lose suction


The fan/impeller could be broken or too worn to provide suction. Check it and replace if necessary.
Did you clean/replace the filters? Instructions for doing so can be found on page 16 of the manual.
Other things to check can be found on page 17 of the manual.
The manual is found on the following site.

I purchased a Dyson DC05 cleaner from a garage sale.The suction is great,however I noticed that the debris does not swirl around in the cylinder when I am vacuuming.I think the suction could be even...


Hi there VacuumGuru from Vacuumspot.com.au here. You will find there are 2 reasons will not spin in a dyson DC05. 1 is that it is missing one of the 2 parts in the dust container, there should be an upside down funnel in there and a rubber boot on it. Without those dust just goes either to the bottom of the bin or to the filter. The 2nd cause is that even though the filters have been cleaned they are simply too old. When you hold the washable filter (the one with the plastic outer and the foam insert) up to the light and take out the foam bit you should be able to see light through the filter. If not you are probably only running on maybe 80% suction which still works but isn't as good as it could be.
The filters are available here if you need them.
Hope this helps! :)

Loss of suction?


Mine was doing something similar. When standing upright, suction was strong through the hose. When I lowered the handle to sweep the floor, the bar underneath would spin, but the suction seemed horrible and the dirt inside the window wasn't spinning/cycloning like it used to. I called Dyson Support and they had me lay the vacuum on it's left side. Now look underneath and you'll see a clear hose, one end connected to the upper part of the vacuum and the other to the lower. I removed the tube and it was completely clogged, especially at the point that it connects to the bottom part of the vaccum. After that I reconnect and it sucks like the day I got it. Dyson support is still sending me a new "internal hose" but I don't think I need it.

Just bought this Hoover Fusion vaccum used, cleaned it up, checked belt and filter, turned it on and is extremely loud, almost like a scream. Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix?


Loud noises from this model are caused by dirt build up on the suction fan mounted directly to the motor. Under the dirt cup there is a filter screen that should have a foam filter insert, when not used or cleaned properly allows dirt to get into the motor. Cleaning is the best option. Although if you are inclined, you can take it apart or take it to your local deaLer.

Shutting off due to overheating


The foam style filters they sent you go in the top of the vaccume above the canister. There is a sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating an orange lever in the top of that compartment. This releases a plastic retainer with the foam filter in it. Mine was so caked with dirt after 1 year of use it took a while to clean it up. I thought the vaccume was done for in only a year.

Dirt does not go in the dustdup


Take off the front top filter (the clear plastic peice where it says eureka) there should be two filters inside, the bit of foam and the peice it's attached to.

I clean both parts in warm soapy water and let dry, that always fixes the problem for me.
