Well something is clogged hopefully. Is your bag full? If it's a canister remove the hose completely ...Find a very long dowel or broom handle and start poking from both ends of the hose,

Electrolux cyclone power 1900w no suction with main attachment


If you've tried several different attachments and they all exhibit the same poor suction problems, you should completely check the parts of the vac that are common to all the parts that have the problem.

Since the motor creates good suction without attachments, I suspect the problem is the hose. Either an obstruction or a crack. Typically, if you block the end of the hose, the pitch of the motor's sound will go up slightly - like it it is spinning faster (it is). You can keep removing parts from the vac intake until the motors sound decreases - and that will indicate the part that has the obstruction. If it is a hose, you should clear the obstruction with a "snake" or other object like a pole.

If the motor sound does not change, then there is likely a split or crack somewhere between the intake of the vac and the device. You'll have to check it carefully - or if possible - connect it to the output of a vac and seal / cover the end. Feel along the length of the hose, etc. for air being blown out. Repair the opening and you should be "good to go"

Good luck!

My vacuum stopped working. If it is plugged in and not connected to the power nozzle and you turn it on nothing happens. If you plug in the power nozzle it turns and works fine but no suction.


depending on your unit, and how old it might be, it could be the motor, wiring, or even a fuse next to or on the motor. The power is working fine you have said because the power nozzle works, but because there is no suction I am leaning towards a suction motor in this case.

Why has air suction pressure has dropped off to almost no suction? Filter cleaning did not help.


Do any of the ports have greater suction than others and are they closer to the vacuum motor unit? You appear to have a piping clog and locating it's position is the primary problem. If you have a portable vacuum, try placing it's hose in the exhaust port of the main unit and insert the pickup hose in a wall port near the main vacuum so that both units are on. The combined suction may pull the clog loose and draw it into the filter of the main unit. The other remedy is to remove the piping from the main unit and see if suction is good at that point, then work your way out to the nearest wall port. Hope some of this helps!

No 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

Low suction


1) Have you checked the filter? If it is clogged your suction will be low. Also, you could have a pipe loose where you can't see. Make sure that you can get a coin to go all the way through the hose. make sure the suction motor ( the unit ) is coming on.

2) Call the repair man.

Motor works, but no suction! what do you think?


No suction usually means a clog somewhere or bad filters. The hose and/or the dirt inlet by the brush roll may be coulded. The belt may have stretched enough to not turn the brush roll under load and that can seem like no suction. The worst is the motor is running at full speed, which would mean replacing the motor.
