SOURCE: Suction only works using the hand held mode, there is no suction when try to use on carpet mode,

There must be a clog in either the hose, dirt inland by the brush roll, or bad filters. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then look lower all the way to the brush roll.

SOURCE: Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet

Ours did the same thing. I cleaned the filter and canister thoroughly. It needed to be cleaned, but that didn't fix the problem. I removed the plate under the carpet brush bar (three quarter-turn screws) and removed all hair, lint and threads from the rollers and brush. THEN my husband found the real problem: a piece of flexible hose running from the head into the hose (on the left side when behind the vacuum) was completely clogged. The hose will detach from the head, and you can remove debris. Once that clog was removed, the hose easily re-attaches, and we had great suction once again.

SOURCE: No suction below when carpet mode or bare floor mode selected

it is probably clogged near where the floor part picks up
that is why the wand still works

Has suction when handle is in up position. Not suction when bring the handle down.


Is this a Dyson?

when the handle is up, suction is diverted to the handle for the tools and you can hear it sucking at the top of the handle. When you lower it, the suction goes to the floor head. If you have no suction at the head when you do carpet or hard floor, turn it over, turn the three screws a quarter turn using a 25 cent quarter and remove the bottom plate. Clear any obstruction.

There's no switch per sey, but there is a clutch activation knob, on the right side of the base, as you're standing behind the unit. There should be a Carpet or Hard floor setting, just two. Twist it to change from one to the other. However, all this is meant to do, as far as I know, is to turn on the brush roll or turn it off, by means of a clutch system. I don't think it has anything to do with the wand assembly.

I have a bissel pro heat 2x and it wont spray


I love these and have 2 of them! The warrantees are usually good and it is your pump if both the hand held and carpet positions won't spray water. Both the soap tank and water resevoir need to have at the very least water in both for the unit to work. Yes... You can use just hot water for light cleaning in both. The pump controls both the spraying water and suction. Last, if one or the other won't spray, the unit can have residue blockage. The passages are narrow, check to see if they are clean. Last test. Turn it on, release the handle. At the base of the neck there will be an oval shaped opening. With the handle on the floor as if filling the unit with water...put either your hand or a paper plate over the hole to see if there is suction. If the pump is good, you will feel a lot of suction against your hand or the flat surface of the plate.

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.

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.

I have full suction with the hose and when the brush is off of the vacuum. However, in the vacuuming position, there isn't enough suction to pick anything up. I checked for clogs and cleaned all the...


So I have exactly the opposite problem, it sucks in floor mode but the hand held has zero suction. My daughter and i just spent the last hour disassembling and diagnosing and found this: The way the suction tube is configured, you have two places to **** from, the floor and the hand held hose. If you look at the back of the machine, you can see the "y" where the two hoses join. just behind the beater bar there is a blast gate that closes when you stand the machine upright. This closes the blast gate and directs full sution to the hand hose. In floor mode as the handle tips back, a follower wheel and spring move the blast gate to open. THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART...if the hose is not docked, there is a second place for the suction to go and you will get no suction at the floor. In my case, the center post where the spring mounts is broken and the blast gate flap does not close, so the hand hose gets no suction because it is like a straw with a hole in it, the air will seek the least resistance. In your case you either have not returned the hose to the docking port or your blast gate is stuck in the closed position. To check this remove the two screws and clamp that secure the lower hose to the suction manifold. Pull the hose stright an look inside to see if the blast gate is open or closed. Use the release pedal to cycle the machine between upright and floor mode and you should see the blast gate open and close. If you don't, well that's a whole other story. I'm off to see if I can find a replacement part at repairclinic.com. If not I will have to get some polyester epoxy and fix it myself.

HI ,
I AM BILL AND I HAVE A SIMILAR PROBLEM. I HAVE FOUND THAT THERE IS A SHIFTER VALVE NEAR THE REAR OF THE MOTOR AREA.
IF YOU LAY THE HANDLE DOWN FLAT YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE VACUUM HOSE ATTACHES TO THE SUCTION MOTOR. CHECK THERE TO SEE IF IT HAS COME APART.

NEXT CHECK THE SHIFTER VALVE AND SPRING MOVE ROTATE 1/3 OF A TURN . WHEN YOU LOWER THE HANDLE THE SHIFTER HAS TO BE IN THE FLOOR MODE FOR THE SUCTION TO THE MAIN FLOOR SCRUBBER AND SPIN THE BRUSHES.
TO USE HAND TOOLS THE HANDLE HAS TO RAISE UP AND LOCK TO OPERATE ANY HAND TOOLS.
A PLASTIC LEVER BREAKS BY A SPRING CALLED THE SHIFTING LEVER. A SHIFTER VALVE LEVER IS THE RIGHT REAR, THE HANDLE DOWN. GOOD LUCK

MY PROBLEM ACTUALLY THE SHIFTER DOOR AND I HAVE A LOT OF SEARCHING TO DO TO FIND THAT.
OH! BY THE WAY THE LEVER PART # IS 90001320 $2.16 + SHIPPING AT SEARS PARTS DIRECT
