Hi, this is Jim with Crucial Vacuum!

Try extending your vacuums hose out as far as possible. This will help identify any clogs within. If you do see a hard to reach clog use a broom handle to push the debris out.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums filter and dust bin. By having these two parts of your vacuum full of debris you're encouraging clogs throughout the unit, which leads to poor suction in both the base and hose of your vacuum.

Should you need any replacement parts in the future please feel free to order direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Depending on what vacuum you have there is likely a clog or restriction in the hose or one of the suction tubes leading to the hose.

I love the machine because it sucks up the dirt but it also sucks up the rug fibers and is clogging the hose. How to I clean out the hose?


Try this - run a strong string with a small weight attached down through the hose. Tie a small rag or a sponge to the end of the string and pull it back through the hose.

Doesn't suck when hose is in


If your Nilfisk doesn't suck with the hose on it, and it sucks from the body with it off, it means that the hose is blocked. I have had Nilfisks when I worked in hotels and have seen this before. Push a broomstick down the tube from both ends after removing the metal handle. There is a rubber seal with a plastic ring. Remove the ring and the seal will stretch and come off the ball on the end of the metal tube.

My Miele vacuum's hose has stopped sucking-help!!


Sounds like you might have something caught in it. If you have another vacuum with a hose, use that machine to suck out the clog in your Miele hose.

Fixing the overstretched hose on the helix bissell vacuum


Hey Trinidad! Sorry to hear the hose sucking together. You may want to purchase a new upholstery hose.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website.

Every time I turn vac on with hose attached the canister sucks in on itself. the hose is not plugged


Try it with no attachment or nozzle on the end. If it sucks the hose in on itself then, you'll be wanting to check that hose one more time. Pass something with a larger diameter through it. I'd try 3/4" PVC pipe or something like that. Another alternative is to place the hose on the exhaust of the canister and try to blow it out. Yet a third possibility is to reverse the hose on the suction side and **** through the hose backwards.
Best regards, --W/D--

Accessory hose not sucking


Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!

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.

Minuteman ambassador jr. shampoo extractor


roro, There are two possibilites: One is that each hose does something different (suck and exhaust) or both suck. Find the one that sucks. That should be the one that you hook tools to now. If the attachment has an electrical connection, it will be needed to do scrubbing. If the shampoo unit is from a different brand, you'll have to make up something to do that. If you do, be certain that the connection is fully taped up so no liquid can get to it!!

SteamVac Supreme Vacuum Problem:


Does this have the slot in front of the dirty water tank for the hose? If it does and the hose isn't installed, there is a block that you put in when the hose isn't being used. If not there, then it will blow air and won't suck up.
