Want suck it is leaving it in the hose and not going in the canister

Re: want suck

Since this is a 12 amp motor, it's going to have greater suction. You've got to consistently clean all 3 filters or you'll get clogs as the suction is lost.

If you or your husband don't like taking the entire vacuum apart so often, the alternative is clean it thoroughly once a month, including ALL the filters.

FYI, if you stick a garden hose in the vacuum hose, you'll have some of the worst mildew stink coming out of it that it will be unusable for quite some time.

If the hose clogs, you can get a $12.00 drain pipe cleaner used to try to unclog plumbing pipes and twist a coat hanger around the end piece and push it through the vacuum hose.

I just clean one up thoroughly and it works fine now.

Clog free=clean thoroughly
If your rugs are really, really dirty, you'll need to clean it after one pass through all your rugs.

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?

The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

My hose is on the suction side of the Ridgid Dry Vac but its still blowing out of the other hole. How do I fix this?

it is supposed to blow out the other hole. in order for a vacuum cleaner to suck things up, it also takes in air. That air passes thru a filter leaving the debris inside the canister, and then exits thru the other hole.

Every time I turn vac on with hose attached the canister sucks in on itself. the hose is not plugged

Try it with no attachment or nozzle on the end. If it sucks the hose in on itself then, you'll be wanting to check that hose one more time. Pass something with a larger diameter through it. I'd try 3/4" PVC pipe or something like that. Another alternative is to place the hose on the exhaust of the canister and try to blow it out. Yet a third possibility is to reverse the hose on the suction side and **** through the hose backwards.

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks

Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

I have a dyson that is picking up just fine when on vacuum mode, however when I try to use the suction tube there is no suction at all. It is not blocked and the canister is empty. Help!

Hi, I have an upright DC03, brilliant machine. Mine wouldn't **** and had the following symptoms;
- it sucked ok from the top hole where the canister joins the unit - with the canister the dust didn't spin aroun inside the canister like it normally does and there was no **** at the hose end or brush end. - with the top of the canister attached (the cyclone) but not the bottom it sucked through the cyclone - the small valve on top of the cyclone unit was sucking heaps
this indicated to me the machine was sucking through the cyclone unit but when the canister was put on it was blocked - hence the tremendous sucking through the valve on the top of the cyclone. As far as I could see the cyclone wasn't blocked so I poked some wire down the tube inside the machine that runs from the bottom of the unit (where the hose sits) up to the bottom hole where the canister joins. 
The DC03 has 2 holes where the canister attaches, it seems like it sucks air through the top hole, through the cyclone and through the lower hole sucks the dust up this inner tube into the canister. Check that tube, shine a torch from the top hole and you should be able to see the light at the bottom. Make sure you clear it completely. 
Mine was very very blocked. I kept poking and removing dust until I could see light at through the tube. Works fine now.
Hopefully this helps someone as it took me awhile to work it out. 
Good luck

Filter queen spitting more than sucking

Usually this means that you have a clog, either in the hose, wands, or by the brush roll in the power head.

Vacuum is not sucking. It is just over a year old.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It sounds like you have a clogged hose or a full bag, or dirty filter. The best way to check your electric hose id to run a marble or steel ball thru the hose and if it goes thru all the way then check the bag and filter, most times it is the vacuum hose. If it id the hose you can try to pull apart the clog from both ends using another central or canister vacuum. If not and the ball stops mid way thru the hose then you can use a broom handle with a round hook on the end so that it does not puncture the hose is any place and the round hook can loosen or break up your clog and then your suction will return, if you poke a hole in the vacuum hose there are repair kits that go on the outside of the hose that will slide over the hose and then you use a heat gun and shrink the hose repair kit down to size therefore plugging the leak. (Hose repair kit). So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Seems to be sucking from a vent on the canister (under the handle)???

After cleaning out the right side (same side as the floor surface adjuster is) we found a popsicle stick and some other large debris clogging the tube going from the motorized roller section to the canister body. We used a pair of pliers to unclog it and were back in business! The vent in the top is probably to prevent the vacum from breaking itself from all the suction buildup. Hope others can find this helpful!
