SOURCE: suction

Don't panic! Easy fix!

I was having the same problem, but I removed the base plate from the bottom of the vaccum (5 screws on mine), revealing the roller and the engine. Just behind the roller is an intake tube. Mine had a piece of wrapping paper stuck in it causing everything else to clog up.

Riccar vacuum 8625 vacuums the floors;but does not seem to have suction for the carpets


The belt may look fine but could have lost elasticity. Stretch belts will lose elasticity and should be replaced at least once or twice per year. If the brush strips are worn or frayed it will not pick up properly.

There is too much suction even with the hand tools on Hoover wind tunnel. Can i adjust suction somehow?


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

If there is too much suction, adjust the nozzle control knob to a higher setting. The knob is located on the front of the vacuum at the bottom. For optimal cleaning efficiency a low setting should be used for most types of carpet and for hardwood floors, tile, and deep carpets use a higher setting.

My simplicity 7200 does not have vacuum. Air comes out the front post filter area


If air is coming out of the filter air has to be going in through the suction hose but it may be restricted with a clog. Replace the bag and both filters. If it's been over six months since the belt has been changed start by changing the belt. Most of the vacuums brought to my store with the customer stating "it has no suction" actually have great suction but no agitation from the brush roll. If the belt is not turning the brush roll fast enough when vacuuming the carpets it will not even pickup lint and hair.

What's the best vacuum for pet hair?


Try a bagless vacuum cleaner as hair blocks up bags very quickly. One that is around 2000 watts should have enough power to do the job. As for the price check appliance stores for sales and deals.

If your brush roll is turning and your bag is not overly full, then the only other thing it can be is a clog where the bag connects to the vacuum. Turn the plastic part out away from vacuum and lift off to see if you have something clogging it. It would have to be something big, but not so big that it could not get past the fan. As a rule of thumb, KIRBY never clogs. I suspect that your belt is stretched out and your brush roll is not turning while on the carpet so the brush roll is just in the way rather than brushing your carpet to pick up dirt.

NEVER USE THE HARD BRUSHES ON CARPET ! You can burn up your motor, break the drive belt,or strip the drive gears The black bristle brushes are for all carpet types.
The hard bristle brushes are made for hardwood and other smooth surfaces.

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
