If the hose has suction in the upright position, and the floor has no suction in the normal use position, check for obstruction in the dirt path from the agitator cavity, thru the short hose, into the lower handle.

    This is helpful except it doesn't say how to get into that area to check it.

My vacum will not pick up, it is spitting the dirt out?


Check for blockage.

Most likely place is in the tube leading up from behind the beater bar. While unplugged, remove beater bar & belt & check.

If you have a strong shop vac, remove beater bar, belt, and bag, applying suction to the tube in back of the beater bar will many times dislodge the clog with little effort, sometimes though it will take some fishing around with a stiff piece of coathanger wire or similar.

Normally when you can apply suction with the shop vac to the tube in back of the beater bar & feel suction at the tube were the bag connects, you know you've got it all and you should be unclogged. Put it back together and you should be ready to roll.

I have no suction from the bottom


If there are no obvious air leaks, check to see that the belt that turns the beater brush is not broken and that the beater brush has not frozen up. Remove the beater brush and clean it, spraying a bit of WD40 at each end by the hard rubber pieces that hold it in place. Turn the beater brush by hand to be sure it moves freely around the rubber pieces. When you reassemble, make sure the belt is properly installed.

Beater bar not working. suction not working


Check for a broken beater brush belt. Clean the beater brush, clear of all debris and add some WD40 at each end where the rubber holders are. Turn beater brush by hand to work the WD40 into the axle. Reassemble making sure the belt is on correctly. This should also help solve the suction problem as well.

My Hoover Wind Tunnel has no suction, unless I use the hose and wands. It is less than a year old. Where do I take it to get repaired?


Before you take it anywhere, please check the following:
1- Make sure the belt that runs the beater brush on the bottom has not broken. 2- Be sure the beater brush has not frozen up due to debris. You should be able to move it by hand. Best to remove the brush, clean all debris as best you can and add some WD40 to the rubber pieces at each end of the brush. Turn the rubber pieces to work the WD40 into axle at the end of the brush until they move easy and reassemble.
If you find this information to be of help, please go to the rating section of FixYa and provide me a rating.

The suction is quite poor, also definite burning smell after normal use. we only have about 3 years would it be the engine


I would check the drive belts for the beater brush and make sure the beater brush itself is free to move in the holders. Clean the beater brush of all debris and add a bit of WD40 on the two ends between the brush and the holders.
I do not charge for my advice. : )

Suction is fine but rotor brush does not turn, replace belt?


You may need a new belt, but unplug the vac, turn it over and make sure that the brush isn't clogged up with threads, hair etc that end up stuck in the brush and not going thru to the basket..
Use a pair of scissors to cut all strands from the brush and double check the operation, and if it's still not turning, replace the belt.
The lower cover can be removed and the beater bar can be removed to install a new belt..

No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon


Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.

Beater bar has stopped turning


All beater and rotating brush bars are fairly easy to get to with a couple of screw on the bottom of your wan. They are driven by a belt and these belts come off, break, or the bar itself is stuck with rug material. Unplug your vacumn and get our screwdriver. It;s easy to figure out once inside the wan.

No suction


you still have a clog in there something is keeping the brushes from spinning. Be sure to remove any hair/string etc twisted around the brushes. Make sure the belt hasn't slipped off the metal pin behind the brushes, this is what creates the rotation. The brushes have a hard plastic molding on each end that fit into the sides of the vacuum. Make sure you have these on the right way or they will strip out and you have to replace the housing and the brushes. Have you cleared any blockages from the feed behind the brushes? Be sure to take the hose and extend it out and run a broom handle or something down it to be sure you do not have something lodged in there. Good luck .. if you need more detail post back. These can be rebuilt if needed, hopefully it is just something lodged further down the suction canal.
