Hose has almost no suction but system is on


First check the hose for being plugged. Check the filters. One behind the dirt bag. They do get plugged. Also make sure you have the proper dirt bag that's made for that make. I had one come in and no suction and they had installed a new dirt bag but it was not made for that machine and it went over the area where it is suppose to suck air. They said well we went to the store and bought a Kenmore bag but what they did not realize there are several Kenmore models and they all take different size bags.

I have replaced the bag, and both filters and it still doesnt have good suction and the full bag light is still on, whats the problem?


You probably have a clog in either the hose, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. That red light is telling you that either the bag is full or a clog is not allowing suction..

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet


This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.
You don't mention whether it's a canister or upright, but check all hoses and tube.
It can also be due to a full bag or clogged filter. Another cause could be a fault in the switch or wiring that turns on the power nozzle (only if it has a separate motor) but not the vacuum.
The fan blades could be broken or worn, which would allow the vacuum to run, but with no airflow/suction.
Or most costly, the motor is worn out and no longer working.

My bissell 3120-3 is not sucking up dirt


if the vacuum is not sucking up dirt first check the hose to see if there is suction if you dont have suction there you need to follow the hose to the nearest connection remove the hose from there using screwdriver or some models will twist off check to see if there are any blockages, make sure the bag is not full if so replace bag with new one if needed, if bagless or if that dosent resolve the problem remove the cover plate for the roller, remove the roller and check the suction port that routes the dirt and debris to the dirt cup or the bag. you will just need to check all of the different routes to the bag or dirt cup, the best thing to have is a blower and you can blow through the different passways untill the clog is blown out, thanks I am sure that this info will help everyone if in alb visit the Vacuum Doctor, Don the doctor is always in!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have suction, new bag, brush moving but does not


Solved!!!

I went to my local Sears store and the salesman there looked at my vacuum and was able to resolve the issue. There was a piece of wire that had been sucked into the machine that then blocked anything else from being vacuumed up.

Thanks for your help.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
