Is the suction poor at all inlets? If so, you may have a clog in the hose. If just certain inlets, then you may have a clog in the piping. Run a small slip of paper with a number on it (number for each port) then see which one didn't make it to your cannister. Then you will know which section has a clog. Disconnect the pipe at the cannistor, turn it on and see if the suction is good there, if not then you have a problem within the main unit.

Electrolux Ultraactive losing suction and turbo head brush won't spin. Canister is empty, no blockage in hose or nozzle of turbo head, filters cleaned, but Hepa not replaced recently. Could that cause it...

Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few potential solutions you should try to fix the suction of your Electrolux vacuum. The first thing you should check is the height of your brush-roll. Your height setting may be too high for the type of floor you are vacuuming. Raise or lower your brush-roll depending on if you are vacuuming on carpet, tile, or wood surfaces.The second thing you should check is the vacuum bag. If it is full your vacuum can lose suction. This is simply remedied by replacing it with a new and clean bag. The third reason for a loss of suction is your hose is clogged. Check the hose for debris or foreign objects that may be obstructing the flow of air in the vacuum. The last potential reason for your vacuum losing suction could be the brush-roll itself. If it is clogged with dirt and hair it may not be spinning and not picking anything up. Check to see the condition of your brush-roll. If it is clogged remove the debris.

Does the vacuum lose suction when in the floor mode if the belt is broken?

To put it simply, no. By floor mode I'm assuming you're stopping the brush roll from turning so that you can clean hard surface floors instead of carpet. When the brush roll doesn't turn you do lose agitation which vibrates the carpet so that the dirt is more easily picked up by the vacuum. But you don't lose suction because the brush is not turning.

Hello,We have an Hoover Mach 5 Cyclonic vacuum that has no suction. We have cleaned and checked all hoses, belts & filters. Please help us.

With this model, remove the dust tank, and turn it on, check for suction at the lower intake. If you have suction, install the tank and remove hose, and check for suction there. keep following until youn lose it. Then you problem will be between those 2 areas

No suction for Kenmore upright vacuum

You have not stated which model vacuum you have. Bipass vacuum have a bipass compartment which is under drive unit. Make sure there are no cracks around housing as this is where you vacuume is created. In order to have vacuum you must have airflow, in assences suction. No air flow, no suction. If the airflow is deverted somehow suction will stop. Your filter, your bag are all sources of air flow. Clog either and you lose suction. Start with loss of air, being cracks in housing,bag or filter
