Question about Vacuums
The motor works but I don't feel any suction when I put my hand under the revolving brush. Also if I let it stay on vary long it gets hot quickly and starts to have a burning smell. I have checked the long hose and it is not clogged. I have also unscrewed the plate holding the short hose at the lower rear of the unit and checked it for clogs. It is also clear.
I am a renter and the directions for the unit are not here. Can I download a manual for it including troubleshooting informatin
I saw this kind of vacuum on a sidewalk, someone didn't want it anymore. I checked it out and it wasn't sucking from the motor brush. I check the small hose at the lower rear of the unit and it was totally clog. I cleaned it well and it was working again. Poor vacuum it just needed a little TLC. But I discovered when the dust bag cover isn't close correctly (or if theres any leak ) there will be no sucktion what so ever. Make sure that the vacuum bag cover is sitted well...hope this help.

On my vacuum the "vacuum fan" (my name for the part which creats the suction) broke off the motor shaft. The vacuum sounded like it was working, but there was no suction. If you are sure there are no clogs (drop a marble down any hoses you can't see through), then this is the likely cause.
