Re: Seems to be sucking from a vent on the canister...

We had the same problem. High whine and no suction in the hose. Guess what? Same culprit! Popsicle stick and some other assorted nastiness in the assembly near the floor surface adjuster. Best solution? Getting rid of the kids! (Joking) :) Happy New Year all.

Re: Seems to be sucking from a vent on the canister...

After cleaning out the right side (same side as the floor surface adjuster is) we found a popsicle stick and some other large debris clogging the tube going from the motorized roller section to the canister body. We used a pair of pliers to unclog it and were back in business! The vent in the top is probably to prevent the vacum from breaking itself from all the suction buildup. Hope others can find this helpful!

Why is pet hair not getting into canister?

this is just a suggestion. I would take off the hose and if you can't see through it if not try pushing a broom handle through it. pet hair is the worst enemy of a vacuum sweeper I know from experience so I opt to try to hand sweep as much as possible.
not only will it clog a hose but it gets into the beater brush and ruins the bearings on the end caps causing you to have to either try to clean it out or purchase a new one.
whichever the case, good luck it is worth a shot to save some money.

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?

The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

Hi! My Dyson DC17 starts fine and then, within a second, gets very loud with an extra sucking noise.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17 includes a suction relief valve. This allows extra airflow into the vacuum to protect the motor if the machine is used when blocked. If you've already washed the pre-motor filter and checked all the ducts for blockages, it's possible there's an issue with your machine's cyclone pack which has caused it to block.

We'd appreciate the opportunity to help you check for this - please do not continue to use your machine in the meantime as this may cause damage. When you have your DC17 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

When running the 2100 Electrolux vacuum, it is stopping and starting when pulling or pushing the floor attachment. Seems like the connection at the top of the handle is a little loose or the electric tabs...

Depending on the age of your 2100, you will need to replace, the wand cord, the handle wiring and perhaps theh upper wand inner tube and handle as well.
If you examine your cord contacts they will be blackened from slippage, so will the female socket they plug into. On and aging 2100 the 1/2 inch groove at the front of the chrome handle tube begins to wear and the metal inner tube clip under the thumb button of the wand develops play back and forth. The wand comes apart into 4 pieces, plastic sheath, upper and lower tubes and cord assy.
If the hose handle groove is worn enough to allow in and out play, you will need to replace the handle, it's wiring, and at least the clip button on the upper wand as well as the wand cord.
You will find these wand parts at a pro vacuum shop but if your hose is original you will need to go to an AERUS Electrolux repair center for parts.
Post back with your results.

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...

High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

The high pitched noise could be because the vacuum is loosing airflow. does the red light come on on the top? if it does ot emptythe vacuum, replace the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the batting in the top of the machine. also hook the hose to the top of the vacuum to make sure there are no clogs in the hose.

I have a dyson that is picking up just fine when on vacuum mode, however when I try to use the suction tube there is no suction at all. It is not blocked and the canister is empty. Help!

Hi, I have an upright DC03, brilliant machine. Mine wouldn't **** and had the following symptoms;
- it sucked ok from the top hole where the canister joins the unit - with the canister the dust didn't spin aroun inside the canister like it normally does and there was no **** at the hose end or brush end. - with the top of the canister attached (the cyclone) but not the bottom it sucked through the cyclone - the small valve on top of the cyclone unit was sucking heaps
this indicated to me the machine was sucking through the cyclone unit but when the canister was put on it was blocked - hence the tremendous sucking through the valve on the top of the cyclone. As far as I could see the cyclone wasn't blocked so I poked some wire down the tube inside the machine that runs from the bottom of the unit (where the hose sits) up to the bottom hole where the canister joins. 
The DC03 has 2 holes where the canister attaches, it seems like it sucks air through the top hole, through the cyclone and through the lower hole sucks the dust up this inner tube into the canister. Check that tube, shine a torch from the top hole and you should be able to see the light at the bottom. Make sure you clear it completely. 
Mine was very very blocked. I kept poking and removing dust until I could see light at through the tube. Works fine now.
Hopefully this helps someone as it took me awhile to work it out. 
Good luck

Small rubber ball got sucked up and is caught in the handle or hose. How can I take it part to remove the object?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. in some cases the Electrolux handle will come apart but id not then I use a couple of methods, if you have another canister vacuum or shop vac then turn on the Electrolux and the other canister vacuum and try to pull the ball out one way or the other. Or you can use a wire coat hander and create a little hook on the end and insert it into the handle portion of the vacuum to see if you can pull out the ball or loosen it so that it will roll out. One other choice that id you have a long small broom handle the length of the hose or longer and then you can push the ball out but the handle has to be smaller than the size of the inside of the hose and also be VERY CAREFUL… because it is an electric hose and it is very expensive so if you cannot remove the small ball bring it to a local vacuum cleaner dealer or the absolute last resort is to replace the hose, but most clogs can be removed. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
