Question about Dirt Devil M088905 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum

No suction from hose

I recently vacuumed Christimas tree pine needles (a ton of them) and since have had very poor pick up and almost no suction from the hose. My husband has checked all of the apparent areas, but I was wondering if there are hidden areas that could be the culprit. Unfortuntely, I no longer have the user manual.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Is there any vacuum at the machine?
?have you made sure the hose is completely clear?
have you made sure the discharch int the bag is not restricted? ( Remove bag and do this test outside)
When you attach the hose, is it blocking off the floor head( where the roller brush is)
Has the bag been replaced?Were the needles still attached to the tree? :) just kidding. Chk the above and let me know. Good luck

Take the bottom plate off, the inlet may be clogged. If not then drop something like a big marble down the hose to see if it goes all of the way thru.

Jusy shut off while using


Your sweeper may have overheated. I don't know what brand you have but I hope you weren't trying to vacuum pine needles from the Christmas tree. Pine needles are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper. Check your sweeper to make sure the tubes (hose & pipes that carry dirt) are clean and clear. I used to service Oreck vacuum sweepers.

No suction


The hose is clogged up. Try disconnecting the hose and loosen the clog. If you try to pick up pine needles, they are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper.

My Hoover upright U5472-900 runs but there is no suction at all. I have taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned it.


Turn it on. Detatch the cleaning tools handle from it's mount. If it still has no suction, you have a plugged hose. Everything your vacuum does goes through that long hose. Take the 2 screws off where it attacvhes to the unit, then gently push a broom handle through it to release/loosen the clog. You should be able to see through the hose from end to end. Toys, tissue and pine needles are big culprets of clogged hoses.

I think the power head is clogged with pine needles. The carpet head is not picking up. How do I open it to clean it out?


Make sure you have suction at the end of the hose. If not, the clog is most likely in the hose. Detach hose from vacuum and wand. Drop a coin into one end and allow it to fall through. If it doesn't drop out, the clog is definitely in the hose. Then visually check the wands for a clog
Disassembling the power nozzle is not necessary, or recommended. First, ensure the clog is in the power nozzle. Drop a coin in the wand end and see if it falls out. If not, the clog is elsewhere. You should be able to clear the power nozzle by disconnecting the wand. Use the handle of a table knife to try to push the clog back through the power nozzle, toward the brush. If that doesn't work, try using long nosed pliers to clear the clog.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel that has been used twice both times at Christmas to pick up pine needles. It really has never been used because my cleaning ladies come every week and use their own machine. ...


You may have the ductwork of the cleaner plugged up with the pine needles. First, unplug the hose from the cleaner and find if you have suction into the bag. If so, check the hose and ducts for blockage from the pine needles.

Lost suction


Hi.

Remove the sole plate turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock & lift off.

Now remove the blockages that have accumilated from the oppening of short clear hose.
Check you can turn brush roller & check belt.

Now reassemble switch on pull handle back & look under machine is brush spinning ?

If not check the knob on side of machine is in drive (D) position.
