Slide your garden hose up the length of the tubing after laying the tubing flat in a straight line. If the blockage is in the hose this will detect it. It may be necessary to hook the blockage out with a length of wire.

SOURCE: my hoover floormate won;t suck/ suction anything!

I had the exact same problem and was on my way out to purchase a new one when I came across solution #1. I decided to check the hoses more thoroughly and discovered my problem. I released the handle to extend the hose and, using a flashlight, inspected the inside of the hose leading to the dump tank. Sure enough, there was a clog where the hose attaches to the nozzle that I never would have seen without a flashlight. Works good as new!

SOURCE: no suction when vacuming floors

Hi.

There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.

Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.

If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.

If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.

Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.

If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.

If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.

There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

SOURCE: shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out

Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

SOURCE: Hoover U6476-910 - Very little suction from the bottom

If you haven't already, remove the beater bar. This is accomplished by unplugging the vacuum and turning it beater bar up. Remove the clips or screws that hold the plate on the beater bar and set aside. The beater bar sits in sockets, so carefully remove the bar, noting the correct position of the sockets. This will make reassembly much easier. Slip the beater bar out of the drive belt. Now, inspect the suction cavity that the beater bar would discharge into. Usually, things clog up here as there is a flex hose that catches things, creating a pluggage.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

SOURCE: BEAM VACUM DOSE NOT WORK GOOD BECAUSE SOMETING SUCKED IN THEIR

Check to see if you have suction at the outlet, if so
the plug is in the hose or wand. If no suction at the wall, check at the vacuum. If you have suction at the vacuum then the line from the vacuum to the outlet
that you were connected is where the plug is.
Try a plumbers snake to try to get plug out.

Vacuum will not suck when hose is put on


Bill:

Check the tube that you plug the hose onto... it's probably clogged with junk. The tube goes down to the tunnel that contains the beater bar at the front of the vacuum head. Also, the vacuum head must be flat on the floor when using the hose or there will be no suction at the hose.

The main machine is not sucking up dirt but you can use the hose with an attachment and it still sucks up o.k.


There's probably a clog in the tube in the power nozzle. Detach hose and drop a marble or similar size object down tube. It should roll through and out at the brush. If not, there's a clog and it needs to be removed.

Good chance the tube from the base up the handle is clogged. Try removing the bag and look at the exit, that is where most clogs on this unit occur. Look for hair, string, etc. If clog is not there, then may be in the tube or at the base swivel unit to the tube interface.

Once you clear the tube, re-attach bag an d power up unit, be careful that it does not throw some debris at you.

I just bought a new belt for my vacuum and have a brand new bag in and it isn't sucking anything up.


1 - make sure that the belt is installed properly and brush roll is spinning as you are vacuuming.
2 - it is not unusual to have a clog in the miniemptor / fill tube assembly - black plastic shoe-like bag bottom part with tube (you can see it HERE)
3 - Sometimes something gets caught in in the exhhaust - part of the main body where you install the bag. Take coat hanger and run through it. Once I have pulled a sock out of there and I could nor see or reach it without the wire...

KENMORE pROGRESSIVE WITH DIRECT DRIVE SUCKING NOISE


I had the exact same problem. The port is a relief valve to prevent the motor from burning out if the hose/bag are clogged. Check the main hose from end to end after removing the 3 screws that hold it to the body of the vacuum near the handle. If that's clear then it's almost certainly clogged in the short tube that goes from the beater bar housing to the hose extension (where the flex tube attaches). There are two ways of going about this.

Option 2
(the way I did it) -- Lock the base on the upright position and turn the unit over. Unscrew the 12 or so screws in the black base. You'll need to depress the release pedal when removing the screw at the end of the pedal. Once you have all of the screws removed carefully wiggle the base loose. You do not need to remove it completely to access the short flex tube. Clean it out and replace everything in the opposite order from how you removed it.

Option 1 (what I would do next time) -- Cut a wire coat hanger and make a small 1/2" hook at the end. Bend the straight section into about a 4" radius arc leaving plenty to handle at the end opposite the hook. Carefully snake the hanger down the tube and pull out the giant clump of hair and dirt that's clogging the vacuum.

cheers -- eric

Vacuum will not pick up, the dirt just lays inthe bottom of the hose and does not get sucked up,i looked for aclog but there isn,t one


Are the filters clean? Is the brush roll turning? Otherwise check the dirt inlet by the brush roll for a clog. Pull the hose off from the bottom, is there suction there? If there is, then the problem is below where the hose is pullged into. If no suction, then there is a clog in the hose, take it off, (if it comes off completely), drop something like a heavy marble down the hose and see if it comes out or not.

Hoover doesn't suck well


Did you check the inlet from the bottom? Take the bottom plate off, make sure that the tube(inlet)is free of any clogs. Also if the belt is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should, replace it part #38528033.

Hoover SteamVac V2 - won't release water


sorry this is so late. the problem might be that the tubes are clogged. after each use most people just put the machine away. in most cases the soap is still in the tube,and when it hardens it clogs the tubes. after each use you should run clear water to get rid of any soap in the tubes before putting away.
