SOURCE: SteamVac Supreme Vacuum Problem:

Does this have the slot in front of the dirty water tank for the hose? If it does and the hose isn't installed, there is a block that you put in when the hose isn't being used. If not there, then it will blow air and won't suck up.

If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.

I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!

My vacuum blows air instead
Posted by katweaver3 on May 04, 2008
My vacuum blows air instead of sucking air. I have a dirt devil swivel guide. I got something stuck in the brush spinner, got it out...but now the vacuum doesn’t **** stuff up anymore.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally if your vacuum has a round belt you may have your belt on backwards, please reverse the belt and the suction will return also you may have a clog in the tube leading up to the bag or dirt cup would be anther reason for the blowing instead of suction. This is not covered under the factory warranty. Feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer for questions.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kenmore w PowerMate just blowing...NOT sucking


Have you made sure the hose is completely clear of any and all obstructions? the power mate also? I have to make the assumption that you're checking the air coming from the rear exhaust port to know that it's still blowing. Take the hose out of the machine and check the suction at the machine itself. If it's good there and not at the end of the hose, that's your problem.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

How do I switch from blowing to sucking


Just took a look at the exploded view for this vacuum and I think there is no way to set it up to "blow" air out of the unit via a hose. On a lot of the vacuums of old there was an input hose port and an output (blower) hose port. Many of them these days, such as yours, exhaust the air in a general manner as opposed to a port that a hose can be connected to in order to act as a blower. Looks like you can only use it as a vacuum.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.

Blowing warm air


Is there a part missing on the front of the dirty water tank? On some of these machines, there is block that you take out so you can insert the hose in its place. So if this spot is open, then it can't suck and will be blowing warm air.
