Why would a Hoover Windtunnel have no suction?


It could be clogged at the head or throat, or you might have a hole in the hose. Unplug the hose; if you're getting suction where the hose plugs in then the problem is in the hose or the head. If you're not getting suction where the hose plugs in then the problem is in the body, probably the throat. If the problem is in the hose or head, detach the hose from the head and check for suction at the end of the hose. If there's not suction there, then you've got a clog or a hole. If there is suction there, then you've got a clog in then head.

I have Electrolux Versatility and have little suction power in the hose part,


Unplug the machine..now if you remove the attachment hose at the body of the vac and feel inside (to the right about an inch) their is a "suction cover" that rotates when the wand is removed (aka using atachments). The cover in your machine is NOT rotating correctly, so it does not get full suction. If you do get some suction from the hose then their is at least a 'small opening' because it has partially rotated. I was able to fix this problem by taking a large screwdriver (1.5 feet long, thick as a pen), inserting it into the small opening (on the suction cover, inside to the right at the top) and forcing the cover down all the way by lifting the screw driver up against the top of the body opening. Seems to have corrected the problem, but may reoccur. If you have NO suction at all then it has failed to rotate whatsoever, and Im not sure how to correct it.

The machine will not suction - it will spray and spin the brushes but will not suction - the power is going to the machine, but it will not suction.


Disconnect the suction hose. While running, check the suction port if it works, by putting a piece of paper. If the paper is taken in, then it is oK. Now, check the suction Hose for breaks or opening before the suction head. Breaks or opening breaks the suction power at the suction head. Loose connection between the suction pipe and the suction port also must be check as this will also cause the same
problem. You may need to replace the suction hose
to correct this problem,

Low suction


Replacing the motor cover solved the problem, it must have been warped and was letting suction out thru it.
