First undo the hose from the base and then take the cover off from under the vacuum, remove the brush roller and belt, then note where the suction hole is and shine a light through the hole and look in the other side, if there isn't any light, then place an object through the hose side of the hole, if there is light, then follow the hose to the holding container, remove the hose from that, then turn it on if no suction from this point, then remove the container and turn it on, you should have some suction coming from the vacuum motor. If so, clean the filter(or replace) dump contents, and reassymble.

Its not easy to get into the sweeper head. I would push a air hose in there and blow the head clean. You will need to find a compressor or your friendly local workshop manager could help you.

I like using a Wire Clothes hanger to work the stuff out with. If you fashion a fish hook of sorts out of the wire, you can catch things inside the brush head and pull them out.

    Another thing is to remove the brush head from the main pipe before working with it. This limits the distance to only about 6 to 8 inches.

Your sweeper may have overheated. I don't know what brand you have but I hope you weren't trying to vacuum pine needles from the Christmas tree. Pine needles are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper. Check your sweeper to make sure the tubes (hose & pipes that carry dirt) are clean and clear. I used to service Oreck vacuum sweepers.

My vacuum stop suction


Usually, the tube leading from the sweeper head up into the bag gets plugged. Remove the bag and the bottom cover plate of the sweeper to check the air passage at the rear of the sweeper. Use a hooked wire to dig out any clogs and check the air tube coming into the bag for any clogs on that end. Take the vacuum outside without the bag and turn it on to make sure the air is moving freely (it's likely to be quite dusty for a moment or two). Don't allow the bag to fill completely to help prevent re-occurrence. Hope this helps!

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

Clogged sweeper filters changed and hose cleaned, but no dirt collecting in the bag. I am no sure what do do next


You have a rubber flap in the dust collection bin that may have been pulled out causing the collection bin to close when vacuum tries to pass through. Try pushing the flap back in to see if that's the cause of your vacuum loss. To test if this is the cause try turning the cleaner on and feel the outlet leading into the removable bin to see if there is any air flow. If there is no air flow, unplug the vac and run a coat hanger through the inlet tube to find and clear any obstructions. Then take the vacuum outdoors, plug it in and turn it on to clear any dust or debris left in the vacuum chamber.

Have an electrolux 2100 canister vac, it has lost suction power thru the years. no clogs in newer hose or in sweeper. even with new bag, filter and belt only increases power minimally.


Have you ever over the years replaced your brushroll ? Have you tried dropping a coin thru the hose from one end to see if it comes out the other end ? Have you taken the wand loose from the elbow ( the swivel part of your carpet sweeper) to see if there was a blockage ? Does the motor make a strange noise ? Have you ever had a tune-up on your vac.
You might think about taking your vac to your Aerus/Electrolux shop.
