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.

My prolux will not **** up dirt


Check the flex hose between the power head and body of the vacuum. If it's cracked, which is likely, there will be a substantial loss of suction at the brush area.
To remove, simply lay the prolux on it's side, pull out the end connected to the power head, then unscrew the end connected to the tank. Turn in a clockwise motion to do so.
To install new hose, screw into the tank in a counter-clockwise direction. When firmly in place, gently push other end into the power head. Manipulate it so it is all the way in.

Happy New Year!

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.

Kenmore progressive 360 vacuum cleaner has low suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Dirt Devil Swivel Glide Platinum vacuum suction problem


Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.
