Green&red led lights not working

I had to take the hose bracket off to clean out the lower part (floor suction)of the hose. Now the LEDs don't light up. Do you know where the contact points are for the LEDs or why they might not be working?

SOURCE: No vacuum suction during normal floor cleaning operation

That door is called a valve door, and it may have broken, part #38718013. Or the valve arm, rear broke, part number 38719048. The spring part # is 38358001. Usually it is the valve arm that breaks. You would have to take the top cover off, then you can see the parts.

SOURCE: suction hose

i would first double check the hose, remove it and drop a marble through it to be sure. make sure the bag is new and also check the filter underneath the bag if it is clogged it could cut the suction.

SOURCE: Hoover Savvy has limited suction when cleaning the floor and carpet

With the unit standing upright, double check the clear plastic air passages on the sides of the vacumn to see if they are clogged.

SOURCE: red light stays on

It sounds like the plates inside the vacuum that detect the dirt have become dirty. I don't remember where they are, but I think they're accessible if you remove a certain hose. Again, I don't know which hose it is.

SOURCE: hose has low suction

I too had the same problem for over a year and changed all filters, checked for clogs, etc, but refused to give up. It just didn't make sense that suction was great on bottom but not on toos... I finally discovered that the "door" on the angle hose was not closing properly when the vacuum was in the upright position (if you look at the vacuum from the back, this hose connects the back to the bottom of the vacuum and it has a "door" at the very bottom end that is supposed to block suction to the lower part of the vacuum while upright) It was unable to close all the way because there was a build up of linty stuff in one corner. The best way to access this is to remove the two screws on the clamp found at the top of the hose, (freeing the hose on top only), straighten hose so you can see inside to the end, and watch inside as you press the upright release lever. (awkward, but worth the effort) You should be able to see the door move -it should be completely open when the vacuum is not locked upright, and should be completely closed when upright. Remove anything that might be preventing it from closing - I used a flathead screwdriver. Dont mean to go on and on, but am so excited to have fixed this problem, and have found so many people with the same situation on the internet while trying to find a solution...Hope this helps someone!!!!

Red light indicator comes on with suction only


Hi there Christy! It sounds like you possibly have a clog in your main hose. To check the hose for clogs remove the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends. Use a broom stick or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the hose. Remove the bottom plate and the brushes. Use a wooden spoon to gently break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose. Hope this helps!

You may have more dog hair in the main hose. Pull the hose out of the body, turn the lower hose swivel 90 degrees parallel to the floor and twist the hose off. You will see where to remove it at the swivel. Also check the port door on the back of the vacuum near the bottom of the upper section. It can be looks like a parallelogram with 2 plastic screws, twist the screws half a rotation and gently pry the cover off. After clearing out any debris, replace the cover and fasten the screws. A small LED flashlight will be very handy for checking all of the ports and hoses.

check the suction hose where it bends down to the floor unit,, lots of times dirt,hair and stuff collects there when the filter was plugged up. remove the floor plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a wire coat hanger to run up the suction hose and back out and clean out any debris, also check the entire hose for blockage ( top to bottom ). if this is all clear and you still have little suction - then the problem could be the vacume motor itself and you will need to take the unit into the repair shop and have the motor rebuilt or replaced.

I was wondering if there is a way to change the light bulb for the display numbers etc..?


hi,

yes there is. the bulb used in most display are LED's.
you can purchase the same size LED's as your unit.
you can also even change its light color. Now leds comes in many color from white, blue, lavander, red, green etc... Also it comes into many sizes.

You need some soldering experience to change the LEDs.

Hope I answered your question and don't forget to rate me.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Shark transformer vac model ep602 will not suction from the floor brush, but will suction from the flexible hose. Dust cup and filters are clean. Do I need to replace the floor brush? Unit was purchased...


Has the floor brush ever worked for you? I thought it was broken at first too. The hose has to be inserted in the appropriate hole in the side of the machine. The hose is where all the suction comes from, when you put it in the side hole it will provide suction for the floor brush.

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty

Attachment hose has no suction


Sometimes when you take them apart and
reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't
make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on
the lever at all) that switches
from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere
are no clogs in the duct then that the
most likely problem
