Electrolux Bagless Canister Vacuum w/Self-CleanHEPA Filter - weak suction

I loved this vacuum when I first got it in July but it has very weak suction now. I have checked the hose and cleaned the filters. Doesn't appear to have any blockage. Any ideas? Too expensive to have it be so worthless!

Unfortunately alot of people buy this model because of the electrolux name, but it is actually made by eureeka. Aerus-Electrolux is the manufacturer of the high quality machines of our parents day.

I had the exact problem. Here's what I did and it now works fine.

1) Remove and empty the dust container.
2) Remove the cover on the side of the dust container of the round space by pulling it straight out.

Mine was totally clogged. I just need to remember to do that periodically.

Hope this helps.

Electrolux vacuum has very little suction

If you have dogs that shed, canister vacuums will always need cleaning out.. try to empty it before it's total full more often, this should prevent it from backing up so much.

Suction weak, vacuum seal spring is releases

I would recommend checking the dyson vacuum brushroll first. If there is any hair or thread wrapped around it you are going to want to cut all of that free that way your brushroll can spin freely. I would also recommend checking the filter and washing or replacing that. On the DC 14 that is going to be on the top of the dust canister as well as under the canister if you lift it off of the unit.

No suction. dirt goes into the filter instead of the canister

Check the motor and clean it properly. A very dirt motor will cause no suction or weak suction.
Be sure the motor is running on proper speed, a weak motor will cause a weak suction.
Thanks for asking.

Electrolux EL8505 does not have suction. Hoses have been checked. No warning lights on. Help

I had the same problem I found a clog in the hose between the beater brush and the canister. I used compressed air to unclog.

Electrolux 2100 vac dies when you attach hose even with new bag.

If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

Weak suction on dyson dc05. The suction is not as good as usual

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Try washing your pre filter and checking the machine through for a blockage. These are the most likely causes.

A full blockage procedure and filter washing instructions can be found at

Kind regards

My vacuum tools have very weak suction.

There is a foam ring filter in the bottom of the canister that collects the dirt. It screws off of the bottom on the canister. Take outside and shake it out. It fixed our suction problem.

absolutely all the air in a vacuum would pass through the filter and if its clogged badly you could loose all your suction and if the belt is more than a year old then replace it even if it isnt broken ( they stretch out over time )
