Lg 300B no suction through hose


If you have a loss of suction overall, that generally means one of two things, either you have a clog somewhere near the motor or the motor is fried and will never turn fast enough to make proper vac.

My dyson hose sucks good but, when i put handle down, it won't **** but brush does turn


I just had the same problem....suction from wand, but no suction from soleplate, the brush bar spins. Did all the troubleshooting steps on dyson.com but they didn't work...dyson.com says need to take to repairman, being a diyer I went to search engine. I didn't find a fix, however I found one myself....it appears the vac can get stuck in floor mode or in between modes....the dial on top on dc07 ....selector of floor or carpet..try pushing it back and forth to see if that puts it in carpet mode...check for suction or try vacuuming...if that doesn't work, looking at vac from behind vac on the right hand side is the selector dial..on top of bottom portion of vac.....with vac in upright position, recline it as if about to vacuumn floor...look down at selector area ...you should be able to see a rectangular type button exposed ..push this to reset position...you may have to push it a few times...then try vacuumniing.....I finally had suction from soleplate!! Another tipoff to this problem is my selector dial would not stay in place would pop I to carpet by itself, but only halfway....fro a long time my vac would work but not very well...had to go over same area.4-5 times..What a workout! The first time I contacted dyson via tele the rep had me remove some stuff and I was able to look at area below selector...what I saw was two holes, one hole was only over the other hole half way...hence at that time I had only part suction since holes were not aligning properly....I read somewhere as a further tip to get suction to engage, while vac is reclined step on front edge of vac head it said you'll get more suction that way, I haven't tried that, but thought it may help someone

No suction is the hose of the dyson absolute


Hi Teresa,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. If the cleaner picks up via the cleaner head, but there's no suction through the wand, it's likely that there's a blockage in your wand or hose. I note you've already checked the U-bend, but it may help to follow the steps shown in our online support guide, to make sure everything is correct with the machine:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL


It may also help to wash the filter - in normal use, this should be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve your issue, but if you're still concerned after trying this, please get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call free on 1866MYDYSON, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com.

Kind regards,

Jack

My Electrolux guardian C135 vac has lost suction. replacing the bag does nothing. removing the HEPA filter has no effect - what do you suggest? Will a replacement HEPA filter make any significant...


No you have a clog in the hose, wand or at the power head. Remove the hose wand and power head from the the vacuum. Turn on the vacuum, put the palm of your hand over the hole in front, you should feel plunty of suction. Then replace just the hose and put the palm of your hand over the end of the hose. If you do not have suction the clog is in the hose. You can try putting the hose on the blower port to blow out the clog or use the wire from a coat hanger. If you have suction, then add just the wand and repeat. If you have suction, then the clog is in the neck of power head, you will have to use a coat hanger to clear it.

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty

Dyson DC17 Animal does not have enough suction from the wand handle to power the mini turbine head. The wand handle has very little suction.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your wand/hose assembly is blocked. Try following the blockage procedure in your user guide or visit our website's support section where you can use our self help guide to diagnose problems.

The suction in the hose of my 2 year old Dyson Animal vacuum is compromised. I may have sucked up a small cat toy or something. Regular vac still is fine. The hose "sucks closed" after a few seconds near...


Hi there, it sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To test this, remove the wand handle from the hose and test the suction at the top of the hose. If its strong here, then you will need to remove the blockage from the wand handle. If the suction is still poor, you will need to remove the hose by pressing in the catch on the hose cuff near the base of the machine and removing any blockages.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

My Kenmore Progessive vacuum wand does not have any suction. How can I repair it?


Detach the wand from the hose and see if you have suction from the hose itself. It is more often the blockage is in the corrugations of the hose than in the wand, but also check the elbows of any tools attached to the wand and look thru the wand itself..
Anything caught in the hose should be sucked backward with another vac.
Try opening the dust container, remove the bag if there is one and drop a coin through the hose to locate blockage. The coin will come to rest against the blockage if there is any or drop thru..
If you shake the hose you will locate the blockage by feeling the vibration of the coin against the wall of the hose.This will pinpoint your problem area.
Caution rough use with a wire coat hanger could damage the hose and broomsticks get stuck. Use another vac if the hose is blocked.
