Question about Simplicity Vacuums

1 Answer

I believe my simplicity hose is clogged - how can I unclog it?

Have tried to push a hanger through, but too short to go the whole way - what else can I use. If I turn the vacuum on, the suction is not too strong and the check bag light comes on. I just replaced the bad so I know that is not the problem.

Hoses seldom clog but the area around the head of the vacuum does
where the head is angled at the end of the wand is where items are caught and cause a blockage

Forever series hose is clogged


Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle then take a screw driver to unclog the nozzle behind the roller brush. If the rest of the hose is clogged then you may have to take it to a sweeper repair store to get it cleaned.
I would try a straightened out coat hanger and CAREFULLY work it around to try to break the clog. If you're not that handy then go to an Oreck store if you have one.

I have a nv30 infinity vacuum. The handle is clogged with a sock right where the flexible hose begins. I cannot reach the sock even after removing the telescoping tube. How can I unclog the handle?


Hi Jackie ma268...
You need a metal coat hanger nd a pair of pliers.
You will straighten out the coat hanger with a pair of pliers, except the end that you hang the clothes hanger up with, because it has got the hook already made..
After you have gotten the hanger straight, you will take the hook of the hanger and make a smaller hook that will slide easy into your hose with the hook being able to catch the sock ...once it has caught the sock, then twist it a few times so that it will get caught up in the sock really well...then pull the sock out of the hose...Job done.
Please take time to rate me

Nothing is going into the waste basket when i vacuume


Do you mean the "bag"? If so you have a clog. The first thing is to check is the on board tool hose. Remove the hose from the machine and check suction at the end of the hose. If you have no suction there the clog is between the end of the hose and the bag. Open the bag door and remove the bag. You will have to use a coat hanger wire, make a small turn at one and slowly put it though hose to unclog. If you have suction there, check the section of hose between there and the head of the vacuum with coat hanger wire. If nothing there, then remove the base plate and check the inlet for the dirt there. You should also check to make sure the belt still turns the brush roller, if not replace it.

How can i unclog a Lux 6000 vavuum


The Lux 6000 has a bad record of getting clogged. When it is clogged it will make a high pitch sound . First thing to do is turn the machine on and take the hose out of the top of the vacuum. If the noise changes, the hose is the part that is clogged. Take the hose out and use a broom handle to push the blockage out the other end. You can unscrew the flexable hose from the metal part to make it easier.
If the noise dosen't change when you take the hose out UNPLUG the cord and stand the vacuum up on the handle. You will need to do this against a counter. The black duct hose that is between the main body and the part that has the brush will pull out from the bottom part. You can see into the bottom part and into the duct hose. Use some needle nose pliers to pull the trash out. If the hose is blocked, unscrew it by turning it clockwise. If the blockage is up into the main body, use a coat hanger to try to clear the blockage. You can also insert the hanger into the top where the hose wand goes.
If all fails, take it to your Elux. dealer.
It's a lot easier to do than tell how.

Dyson Animal, lost suction and bypass valve seems to be loose


Dear terrygivens, 2-17-2009 4:12am EST (USA)

Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!

Does not have the same suction as when we first purchase the vaccuum. it is only 2 years old. We cleand the round filter at the bottom of canister. Any suggestions?


Sounds like you have a clog in the hose or from brush to the hose. To clrar turn vacume over and remove bottom cover to unclog where it meats the hose. I would use a coat hanger to unclog the hose.
