Re: I lost the manual to my vacuum


If no suction from hose check the following.
The (U) shaped inspection port at the back of machine where flexi hose enters has not come off or has a blockage.
Remove flexi hose from rear of machine once off slide it fully up the wand handle hold handle end up to a light & look up the pipe for blockages.

Check side premotor filter.
Does it pick up ok when using to vacuum carpets or is that got bad suction to ?

Re: I lost the manual to my vacuum

This was it, It was a marker and a block of styrofoam together created a blockage in the u-bend underneath the flexi-pipe. After disassemblying the flexipipe from the back of the Dyson (its a clip, press the clip towards you and pull the flexi-pipe out). Once I cleaned it out the suction to the wand returned. Thanks for solution, Chris.

It has lost suction

Have you got suction just before the motor? How about air coming out the exhaust?

Riccar 8995 no suction

I think you mean it's an 8955, Riccar has not had a 8995 model. If there is no suction in the hose it has to have something clogging it. Open the little round opening on the back of the vacuum where the hose attaches to see if you have suction there.

I have a model DC3 rainbow thar has lost suction. what can i do to fix it

Check suction at intake without any hose connected. If that is good, then connect hose and check suction again. If that is poor, then you have a clog. If still good, then check power nozzle by getting into the belt area.

Vacuum is on and working but no suction from the main power head, I've lost my owners manual laura

Is there suction at the end of the hose? If so, then there's a clog in the power head air flow section. To double check, detach the hose, drop a coin into power head and see if it falls through.
You can clear it by using the hose and crevice tool to **** the clog out from the brush end. If this doesn't work, try using a knitting or crochet needle to pull clog out. It may also be possible to reach it with needle nose pliers.

There is a trouble-shooting site for better explanations.

I have a dyson 07. Vacuum works fine, great suction using the hose. How do I switch to using the carpet vacuum. (I lost my instruction book) Thanks

If this unit has a suction hose built in to the handle, the carpet vacuum should start working after you return the handle hose to the proper position.
