NO SUCTION ON FLOOR

Suddenly I find that it is not vacuuming the carpet. The cleaning tool attachment is working. Do I have to buy a new vacuum?

    my empower is suctioning poorly.. i cleaned everything.. roller, i checked the belt .. both are ok.. still not suctioning properly.. i felt that air was blowing out from the filter located along with the light bulb

  • fosterfam7 Aug 13, 2008

    I also have no suction and air blowing out from the filter by the light!?? Is there a clog I should be looking for? Neither the roller or the hose has ANY suction.. just air blowing out from the light area..

    No suction on the floor or the end of the hose. Air comes from the filter by the light.

    I have the same problem of the vacuum not having any suction but the tool attachment works just fine. I have checked everything and found no clog and I even cleaned the filter and tried to replace it to see if it would develop suction again. Nothing so far. Does anyone know what the problem is?

    I have the same problem. There is hardly any suction, the attachment works fine and has suction. I've taken the entire vaccum cleaner a part and I've replaced the main filter (Cost me $30.00, the whole stinking vaccum cleaner only cost $100...geeze) and it still hardly picks up anything. I've done everything the manual has said and nothing works. Oh, by the way, mine blows air out of the front as well, the problem is, I can't remember if it always did this...is this normal. I'm going to replace the belt, which seems fine to me, but it's my last hope, otherwise I can see a new vaccum coming soon :o(

Dear Thyagie,since you said the cleaning tool attachment is working,I guess that means the cleaning tool attachment still has suction" so theirs a good chance that there is a clog that needs to be cleared and you wont need a new vacuum at this time.

But you will need to try and trace the clog and clear it. I would start with the tube by the roller brush and work my way up from there !
Also check the roller brush and the belt and make sure it's working properly.If your vacuum has a filter make sure it is clean,and of course make sure the vacuum bag is not full.

I hope this helps,EarlsOK

Why would my simplicity vacuum hose not work? the sweeper itself works but cannot use the attachments?


If the hose is partially clogged it could cause it to not have much suction but may still seem to be vacuuming properly because the brush roll is agitating the carpet. Depending on which model you have if there is no suction at the hose end there is likely none at the floor. If your model is a tandem air it could still be in the hose or in the valve where switch from floor to the hose. The valve can get plugged and it may still vacuum floors very well because the direct air motor is still blowing a lot of air to clean the floor but the clean air motor is not providing any suction. If you have a tandem air model it may be best to take it to your local Simplicity or Riccar dealer for repairs.

Wand has no suction


had same problem, tried for two days to figure it out. husband figured out that at the bottom of the 'cup' where the wand sits is a round protrusion in the middle--that is your answer, that is what controls the valve. he pushed down on it with a tool, we actually had a small rock in the bottom of the cup preventing the plunger from working. now we know for next time. obviously out of warranty and did not want to buy a new vacuum.

Bissel Pro Heat carpet cleaner is not suctioning cleaning water off of the carpet back into the tank. How can I fix this?


There is a knob on the base that says floor and tools. Make sure that it is closing when you switch it to floor, Make sure that the hose works when you use it too. That will tell us what the problem is.

My vacuum doesn't have any suction from the floor, only from the handheld attachments. I've cleaned all of the filters with no luck. Any suggestions?


With the vacuum plugged in and running, make sure the brush is spinning and that the brushes on it and long enough that they brush against your hand (or in real terms your carpet). If it is not spinning, replace the brush roll. This will also drastically increase the cleaning ability of it since the new roll will spin faster and the longer brushes will agitate your carpet better.



Let me know if you need more help,

Dyson eats my carpet


When using the Dyson or for that matter any other vacuum cleaner that has a motorized roller brush, you need to make sure that you AVOID open carpet edges since the suction end ( which has a roller with the brush) will grab open fiber ends. You should use an attachment or floor tool when cleaning open edges of your rug or carpet. Most vacuum cleaners come with a range of attachments that be used be used appropriately.

Vacuum not picking up dirt


The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

It won't **** up water except with tool attachment


When you took off thew clear nozzle, you must have lost the black oblong gasket that sits at the junction at the top for the tank lip to sit on. Without it, you lose suction at that point.
