    Thank You Rylee, Info was very helpful, however I decided to poke around at the clog with a metal rod and in doing so I tore the hose, now i will have to try a widowed womans best friend....' duct tape' to see if I can repair the hose without bending the coils inside of the hose and causing further blocks. your solutions were wonderful and will be helpful in the future. Thank You, Barbara

Hi!

Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

I have a nv30 infinity vacuum. The handle is clogged with a sock right where the flexible hose begins. I cannot reach the sock even after removing the telescoping tube. How can I unclog the handle?


Hi Jackie ma268...
You need a metal coat hanger nd a pair of pliers.
You will straighten out the coat hanger with a pair of pliers, except the end that you hang the clothes hanger up with, because it has got the hook already made..
After you have gotten the hanger straight, you will take the hook of the hanger and make a smaller hook that will slide easy into your hose with the hook being able to catch the sock ...once it has caught the sock, then twist it a few times so that it will get caught up in the sock really well...then pull the sock out of the hose...Job done.

WHEN WE USE THE HOSE ON THE VACUUM DUST AND PET HAIR COME OUT OF THE HOLE HELP


A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
Check the filter, and change if dirty.

Problem is system cuts off after 10-30 seconds. Is this a common problem?


It is if the motor overheats. Overheating can be caused by several things. Clogged pipes, hose, wands, or power nozzle, or a dirty filter are the most common.
First, disconnect the hose from the wands, plug the hose into the wall outlet, and check the suction. If it's weak or non-existent, there's probably a blockage in it. You can double check by dropping a coin in one end and lifting the hose until the coin drops out the other end. This can best be cleared by using a shop vac or air compressor to blow air through it from the wall end. Plug the shop vac hose into the exhaust port, with the other end in the wall end of the hose Turn on. If this doesn't clear it, you'll probably need to take it to a repair shop.
Visually check the wands. If clogged, simply push it out with a broom handle.
With the wand detached, drop a coin into the wand opening of the power nozzle. If it doesn't fall through, use a wooden spoon handle to push the clog back through toward the brush. Clear it from there.
Check the filter. Remove it and rinse thoroughly. Allow it to air dry thoroughly before reinstalling.
If none of these help, the vacuum needs to be taken to a repair shop for diagnosis and repair.

Good day, I have a EN Vision Dirt Devil upright, 12 amp, wide 15" nozzle. My vacume is blowing out insead of sucking up the dirt from the carpet. Can you help me? What should I do? Thank you...


It's probably the brush "kicking" the dirt out, rather than it being blown out. This happens if there's a clog in the airflow system somewhere. This could be anywhere from the power head above the brush to the tank where the hose connects.
1. Detach hose at both ends. Drop a coin in one end, lift that end up until coin falls out the other end. If it doesn't, there's a blockage that needs to be cleared. You may be able to do this by using a broom handle to push the clog through. Push the broom handle through the power head end.
2. With the hose detached, check the power head connection for blockages. Drop the coin in and see if it drops through. If not, use a wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object to push the clog back toward the brush, then pull or vacuum it out.
3. Check the filter and make sure it's clean,
4. Remove the dirt catcher and check bottom of holder right above motor. There's a screen here to prevent debris from getting to the motor. Clear any dirt and debris from it.

Try the vacuum and see it this has helped.

We have suction at the outlets but when we plug the hose in we have no suction at the carpet vaccuum head.


Is there suction at the end of the hose? If not, the hose is clogged. Generally the blockage is located near the handle, but sometimes at the other end. Occasionally, if something long, like a straw, is sucked up, it will get caught somewhere else in the hose that's impossible to get to.
You can try to hold the wand end of the hose directly to the CV tank and turning it on. This should clear the clog. If not, hold the handle end to the blower of a shop vac or canister and turn it on. The other end should be either in a large plastic bag, inserted in the in port of the vacuum, or directed outside.
If there is suction at the end of the hose, the most likely place for a clog is at the elbow on the power nozzle or just behind the brush. This can be cleared by using the handle of a wooden spoon or similar blunt object to push the clog back out toward the brush.

If none of these help, take the vacuum to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for assistance.

Electrolux Super J model, bag light stays on and vacuum will not run.


Have you checked the screen filter below the bag? This sometimes gets clogged with fuzz and whatnot, resulting in the vacuum shutting off. To clean it simply remove the bag and use a pick or similar item.
A clogged hose will also result in the same problem. Try running without the hose. If the vacuum runs without the hose a blockage in the hose is a probability. However there could be a clog in the power nozzle above the brush, as well. Check the suction at the end of the hose. If very little there's a good possibility this is the problem. Double check by dropping coin in one end and allowing to drop through. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be cleared by plugging the hose into the exhaust port and turning the machine on. Be sure the other end is inside a large plastic bag.
Visually check wands to ensure they're clear. If not, push clog out with a broom stick.

Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

I have some sort of object in the hose of my Epic 6500. I have tried reversing the hose and blowing out the foreighn piece of debeis but this has not worked. Is there a way to remove the plastic...


By reversing it, I assume you plugged the hose into the exhaust blower on the top of the machine. If so, insert the other end into the intake and turn one the vacuum. This way the clog is also getting sucked at what should be the loose end.
If it's a sock or similar item, it will be more difficult. Yes, the handle can be removed, but can sometimes be a bit difficult to put back together for someone not real sure of what they're doing. I've seen several hoses ruined by having sharp or pointed objects inserted to clear a clog, cutting the hose and/or wiring, and ending up burning it up. I recommend taking it to a shop and letting a trained technician take care of it. An authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer would be best.

If you have access to a small sink "snake" used to clear clogs in sinks, you might be able to use it to "snag" the sock and pull it out. Needs to be a metal sewer snake so that you can tug on it if and when it snags the sock.

Clogged hose and can not get the handle off


The best way to fix this problem is to Stick the other end of the handle into the wall inlet making the nozzle contact the pin jacks of the wall inlet. You may need to work the clog back and forth by then plugging the hose in normally. Eventually you will be able to work the clog out of the hose.

If all else fails you should use a plumbers snake.
