SOURCE: My centralux has minimal suction.

your supposed to WASH the sponger fileter out thouroughly NOT wipe it off. the dirt is in the poors thats why the air can't get through. At this point i would replace the filter if its never really been washed.

Are you getting good section at the wall inlet? If so, see below.
Check for a clog inside the power nozzle. Detach wands and drop a small coin into connection. It should fall through. If it doesn't, there's a clog that needs cleared.
A leaky hose could be the problem. Any vacuum hose is often mistreated, though intentionally. But due to the length of the CV hose, it undergoes quite a bit. Being constantly dragged around corners and pulled around, as well as improper storage can all result in holes/leaks in the hose. A few tiny holes throughout the length of the hose will result in an often dramatic loss of suction.
How old is the vacuum? It may be time to replace the hose.

SOURCE: We have suction at the

Is there suction at the end of the hose? If not, the hose is clogged. Generally the blockage is located near the handle, but sometimes at the other end. Occasionally, if something long, like a straw, is sucked up, it will get caught somewhere else in the hose that's impossible to get to.
You can try to hold the wand end of the hose directly to the CV tank and turning it on. This should clear the clog. If not, hold the handle end to the blower of a shop vac or canister and turn it on. The other end should be either in a large plastic bag, inserted in the in port of the vacuum, or directed outside.
If there is suction at the end of the hose, the most likely place for a clog is at the elbow on the power nozzle or just behind the brush. This can be cleared by using the handle of a wooden spoon or similar blunt object to push the clog back out toward the brush.

If none of these help, take the vacuum to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for assistance.

Only suction from hose


What again for the third time? Already answered this but if it helps:

If you have taken the bottom end of the machine apart, you might not have reassembled it correctly so that the path to the floor (base) plate is obstructed when the vacuum cleaner body is laid back, otherwise:

You have either a blockage in the section of the cleaner in the vicinity of the short flexible hose and the floor (base) plate or the the short flexible hose has become detached at one or both ends.

1. Stand the machine upright with the beater bar in the "off " position. Machine switched off but plugged into the mains outlet.
2. Lay machine on its left hand side. You will see the short flexible hose uppermost. Check that it is attached at both tends and has not split or cracked. Check for obvious visible obstruction inside.
3. Remove the floor (base) plate by releasing the three plastic clips with a quarter turn anti-clockwise. Lift floor plate forwards and check no obstruction. Replace floor plate. Stand machine upright on floor.
4. Press two plastic clips to release the inspection cover, on bottom right hand side of machine (when standing behind it). Look into the hole: you will now be looking down into the U-bend that leads to the hose. Switch on the machine: full suction should be at the hole on the side of the machine (otherwise the hose would not have worked). Switch off.
5. Lean the handle and machine body backwards, as though you were going to use the machine on the floor. The hole to the hose now becomes covered and you will be able to see into the short flexible hose that leads to the floor plate. Check for obstruction. Replace inspection cover.

If there's no obstruction and the flexible hose is sound and attached securely then the machine will work - there's nothing else to check.

Hi, my Bissell 3920 has lost almost all of its suction. I checked the hoses and tubes but did not find any blockages. Filters are clean. Thanks.


Hi, Have you checked and made sure the floor plate is secure and tight without any gaps around the edges? If that's ok then check the suction hose where it bends down to the floor unit,, lots of times dirt,hair and stuff collects there when the filter was plugged up. remove the floor plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a wire coat hanger to run up the suction hose and back out and clean out any debris, also check the entire hose for blockage ( top to bottom ). if this is all clear and you still have little suction - then the problem could be the vacume motor itself

It's blowing dirt out the bottom/back


this is caused by a plugged up suction hose AND / OR a dirty filter.
clean the filter - and remove the bottom floor plate and clean out the hose where it bends down to the floor unit ( this is always where the dirt collects when the filter gets dirty and suction is low ).

Side hose suctions fine, but floor base does not suction.


You most likely have blockage at the bend in the suction tube below where the hose plugs in to the vac. Try using a coat hanger and see if you can remove any debris that way. Alot of vacuums have a screw that you can remove that will allow better access to this commonly clogged area. It will most likely be visable very near where you plug the hose back into the vacuum, when the hose is removed.

How do I switch the vacuum from floor to accessory suction


It automatically switches over when you disconnect the hose from the power nozzle. No suction it getting to the power nozzle, so the suction is only through the attachments. If there is no suction through the hose, check for clogs in the hose and in the tank where the hose plugs in. Also, check the screen at the bottom of the tank. If there is a clog in the hose or tank, then there also will be no suction to the power nozzle.
Remove all clogs and you should get suction.

Shark transformer vac model ep602 will not suction from the floor brush, but will suction from the flexible hose. Dust cup and filters are clean. Do I need to replace the floor brush? Unit was purchased...


Has the floor brush ever worked for you? I thought it was broken at first too. The hose has to be inserted in the appropriate hole in the side of the machine. The hose is where all the suction comes from, when you put it in the side hole it will provide suction for the floor brush.

I don't get much suction from the hose on my DC17 All Floors. I don't see any obtacles in the hose. The suction when upright is fine.


Hello,

The way your Dyson DC17 is designed, there is a suction divert mechanism that diverts the suction to floor when the vacuum cleaner head is pushed down, and then back to the hose when the vacuum is in the upright position. If you are getting suction from the hose when the vacuum is upright, but no suction after the handle is reclined, this is actually the normal function for the Dyson DC17.

You can check to see if the filter is dirty. The washable filter on your Dyson DC17 is located directly underneath of the dust bin of the vacuum cleaner. After removing the dust bin, lift straight up on the part the bottom of the dust bin rests on. This is where the pre-motor filter is located for the DC17 models. If this filter is not cleaned on a regular basis, then it can start getting clogged, and you'll notice a loss of suction on the vacuum cleaner.

If you have further questions, please visit the link below where you may download the instruction manual. There are some trouble shooting guides at the back of the manual that you may do to try and diagnosis this further.

Vacuum doesn't suck (boy, what a problem :D!)


First, check the suction at the end of the hose and make sure there is good pull. On some models, there is a filter tray located under the dirt cup with a washable foam filter in it that could be plugged. It is also possible that the tray could have fallen out during your move. If it is missing, the motor will run, but won't direct the suction to the cup and you won't get any suction from the hose. Note.. not all models have this tray. If the tray is missing, you shouldn't get any suction from the hose.

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!
