I have a Samsung SU3364 vacum cleaner have never been able to use the crevice tools as there is no suction when you take pipe off, only when you use it as a floor vac, any suggestions have tried every


If the vacuum is old, the intake path from the hose to the dirt receptacle may be plugged from years of dust, dirt and grime. This happened to one of our vacuums, and I had to take off the bottom guard, the belt and the sweeper bar to access the intake, and it took me about an hour to get it unplugged.
If this is a new machine, the hose may not be properly connected when you are using the crevice device. Check the manual for proper installation.

My Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum cleaner has a plugged hose.


Hi! A broom stick or something similar is probably the best tool you can use to remove a clog. Try pushing the broomstick in an up and down motion gently against the clog until it starts to loosen and slide out. If you are unable to remove the clog the hose can be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement hose if needed. Good luck!

How do i use the hose on featherlite bagless


Hello! To use the hose on your Featherlight follow these simple steps below.

· Cleaner must be in its upright position. Remove lower hose from the side of the cleaner by twisting to the right and then pull off.
· Remove the hose from the tool caddy.
· Slide the tool hose into the lower dirt hose with the notch facing up. Push together and twist to secure.
· Choose any of the handy accessories or use the hose alone. Simply push the attachment firmly onto the end of the wand or hose handle. To remove tool, twist and pull apart gently.

I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed. Hope this was helpful!

The tools hose on a bissel powerbrush carpet cleaner leaks


Sorry to hear you are having issues with your BISSELL deep cleaner. Your upholstery hose should not leak when used. There is a small o-ring on the end of the hose that may be missing, or if the tool is cracked it could leak. A service center could better help you identify the problem. Here is a link to find your nearest BISSELL Authorized Service Center: http://www.bissell.com/service-centers/?zip=Enter%20your%20zip%20code&distance=50&cid=ccsocial

There are six different reasons a vacuum can lose suction, a plugged vacuum hose, bad motor, full vacuum bag, or cracked or damage hoses. Purchasing a vacuum cleaner can be a costly expense while repairing the suction on the unit can be virtually free. Most suction loss problems on a vacuum can be easily fixed or remedied with common house hold tools and very little technical expertise.
If your vacuum cleaner losses suction, the first and easiest solution is to check the bag. If the vacuum cleaner bag is full suction will be greatly reduced and the unit will become ineffective. A vacuum cleaner works by passing air through the bag fibers leaving dirt and debris behind inside the bag. If the refuse bag becomes full, airflow is restricted, limiting the amount of air passing through the vacuum bag resulting in loss of suction. When replacing the vacuum bag always consult your owners manual to insure that the vacuum bag seals with the vacuum inlet hose. If your vacuum cleaner bag is not tightly sealed to the vacuum inlet hose you will decrease the air flow through the bag resulting in loss of suction.
The second and sometimes most common reason for loss of suction on a vacuum cleaner is a plugged vacuum hose. If the hose becomes plugged, air flow will become restricted. To unplug a vacuum hose detach it from the machine and inspect the inside. If there is a restriction in the hose, remove it with your fingers and replace the hose onto the unit. If the hose is long and the debris is hard to get too, a broom handle or other long object can be passed through the hose to dislodge the debris. Most vacuum cleaners contain more that one suction hose, so make sure to check each one by process of elimination. Another area that can become easily plugged on a vacuum cleaner is under the lower base of the unit by the roller brush. Large debris can get caught in this area and restrict air flow to the hose.
If your vacuum refuse bag is not full and the suction hoses are not plugged the next thing to check is the condition of the hoses. Many hoses are made from plastic which can easily tear or crack. If your vacuum cleaner shows signs of wear or are cracked they need to be replaced. Even the smallest hole in a vacuum hose can leak enough air to greatly diminish the suction potential of your unit. Replace your vacuum cleaner parts with OEM parts from the original manufacturer to ensure the tightest fit.
Most vacuum cleaners contain filters. Filters are used as a last line of defense to remove dust and smaller debris particles before the air is recycled back into the environment. If vacuum cleaner filters become dirty or plugged they also can decrease the amount of air traveling through the unit. Some filters can be easily rinsed with water whereas others need to be replaced. It is important to check your owners manual before rinsing a vacuum filter.
The last and probably least common problem for a vacuum cleaner to loose suction is a bad or failing vacuum motor. Over time vacuum motors lose power due to worn carbon brushes or long term damage. A vacuum cleaners worst enemy is moisture. If water or moisture is sucked into the vacuum motor it will greatly diminish the amount of suction the unit has. Replacing a vac motor can be a costly and time consuming ordeal. In some cases, replacing a vacuum motor can outweigh the cost of buying a new vacuum. Vacuum suction is measured in water lift which can easily be measured by using a water lift gauge. If the water lift measured in inches, falls below half the original water lift specifications for the unit, it is time to replace your motor. Most vacuum cleaner repair shops carry this type of equipment and can easily tell you if it is time for a new vac motor.

Won't work cleaning tools


There is a clog somewhere.

Most likely at any bends or where the hose enters the main body of the vac.

Make sure it's unplugged.
Romove the hose, stretch it out straight and see if you can see through it.

If there arer any hard piped bends try running a pipe cleaner through it to see where the blockage is.

Again, it's likely where the hose base meets the vac housing.

Needle nose pliers com in handy for pulling out string, hair, rig fibers pet fur etc.
