Question about Sharper Image Dyson Slim DC18 All Floors Vacuum

1 Answer

I have excellent suction power through the vac, but when I try to use the hose there is no suction power there. I have cleaned everything and it is definitely clean and clear. I've also used the reset button.

When you use the upright Dyson, the handle has to be in the upright position for the hose to work. In this position, there should be a clear way through for the suction to the hose, and the suction for the normal sweeper should be off. This is all very mechanical, not electronic, and if it does not work there is either a blockage in a bit you haven't found, or a broken plasic component which should be obvious if you take out all the bits in the pipe run that can be removed - there are quite a few of them!
Hope this helps

Lack of suction at power unit


Check that the Handle has a slider to adjust air flow, Electrolux Vac's arent really designed for carpet cleaning, check hose for breaks or cuts and everything is secure, while its on run your hands all over the hose and vac to locate any air flow that should not be.

Let me know.

Loss of suction power & exhaust coming out of vents beneath exhaust port w/ barely/if any air pressure out of port itsef.


You should find your user manual, look up the phone number for Shop Vac's customer service and call them. They will be very helpful and with the unit being no older than that, it should still be in warranty. They will probably have you send it back and will possibly just send you a whole new unit.

Loss of suction


If it is running and you have no suction, there has to be a clog in the dirt path. To clear it, start at the head of the vacuum (where the dirt goes in) take apart or disconnect everything you can along this path until you arrive at the bag or cannister. Take pics with your cell phone so you can reassemble it. Hoses: run a broom handle through all hoses to assure they are clear. If you have a shop vac or similar, try applying vacuum to all parts of your disabled vacuum in reverse. Are there filters on your machine? Make sure they are clean. You probably don't have hoses connected, but if you do, check them as I said.

I pick up vacuums along the road all the time. Very few are more than a few months old. All of then have a clog in the hose or elsewhere in the dirt path. I clean the path and sell the vacs for a slightly discounted price. VERY rarely is it a motor problem.

I hope you find this comment helpful. Here they are in under 5 minutes. Thanks for using FixYa.com

Poor suction in system - I have used shop vac to suction all three receptacles. Have checked bag and cleaned everything. Still poor suction. I have one receptacle in garage that works perfectly. Must...


Have you checked the hose for clogs or leaks. Clogged and leaky hoses are an area of concern with any central vac. Unless you hose has a hose sock, then wear and tear from constant rubbing on floors and other surfaces will result in holes and cracks. Pulling the hose can also result in leaks where the hose attaches to the handle and intake connector.
Mix some dish soap with water.
Use shop vac to blow air through hose, with other end capped or "clogged".
Apply soap solution to each end of hose.
If bubbles form, this indicates leakage. Hose will need to be replaced.

The power will not come one remotely!!


The reset is not the problem. If you have suction at the vac itself , but no elsewhere., you have blockage in your main line, or your hose. Try dropping a coin thru the handle of the hose and shake it all the way thru the other end. If your hose is clear the obstruction is in your piping. If your hose is clogged you must back out the blockage by sucking it back thru the handle.
Go to each inlet with a coin and touch the contacts inside the throat of the inlet...., 2 little brass spring loaded pins. If you can feel suction move on one inlet at a time. If you have no suction at any inlet your blockage is in the main line. If you have suction at some inlets , your blockage is in a branch. Try to pinpoint the closest inlet to the vac where you have no suction. Then put another vac like a shop vac up to the inlet and **** the blockage back out if possible. ..What wedges in must back out the way it went in. Post back with more info if this doesn't work

Kirby Ultimate won't clean carpet


when you install the hose connector it trips a switch that switches the vac motor into high speed because the vac path is longer using the hose. check the belt after you remove the front. make sure the direction of rotation is in the direction of belt travel stamped in the impeller. try adjusting the head height
