Loss of suction on my Ergorapido


thats odd

check if the piping is clear from the dust collection
down to the bottom brush

it does have some sort of dust collection

if it has a filter of any sort check its condition
check the pick up hole in the brush housing
maybe a seal is leaking

My Hoover UH70040W Wind tunnell mach cyclonic has stopped sucking up debris. At the brushes you feel no suction and when you disconnect the tube on the side it has some suction but not much at all. The...


Well if the vac motor is good then its either a clog or a leak ,if you say no clog then it has to be a leak. Make it blow out and see where the air is coming out or try and find it while it is running with a piece of typing paper loosly around the hose and piping. Seals at the connection areas go bad so check them as well.

My fuller brush household canister vacuum doesn't have as much suction as usual. I've changed the bag and cleaned filter. Any other ideas?


. Test the suction without the pipes to confirm that the motor is sucking strongly, then check that there are no blockages in the pipes and fittings.

Very little suction when vacumming


Hi There,

I think I know exactly what the problem is with your Dyson. I'd be happy to try and walk you through it, but just want to make sure that you still need help, or if you've already fixed the problem.

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Not sucking makeing a clogged noise


Bagless vacuums don't usually get clogged as easily as standard bag styles do. However, if you can disconnect the top half from the brush head section you should see a "neck" where the two meet, check there for a clog. Also check your filters, this is where loss of suction happens most. Dirty filters = Low Suction. I hope this helps

Loss of suction when using upright. Suction remains for samll tools


I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.
