Question about Easy Flo EF1600 Central System Vacuum

1 Answer

Beater attachment has no suction.

I used my built in vacuum in the garage by hooking the hose up to the recepticle on the unit itself and flipped the switch on. When I hook up to the plug-in recepticle in the house, the beater turns on but there is no suction. I do get suction when I flip the switch on the hose for suction only. Thank You

Your hose issue is isolated from the garage. You have a switch problem in the handle of the hose.
If the hose has a swivel handle your problem will lie in the switch itself or the contact rings within the lower portion of the handle itself. If this is a light gray hose with swivel handle several years old switches were an issue from time to time . The problem can normally be fixed by replacing the internal wiring harness in the hose.

Engine is running properly; no suction; hose attached properly and it is not plugged, what to do?


Look for trapped lint in the hole up and behind the beater bar. Down in the hole the hose hooks to. This a general answer and not specific.

Eureka 439az has no suction. Beater bar spins ok.


First thing I would check is it has a attachment hose, take off the bottom of the vacuum. Where the beater bar is and look for where the hose goes through the bottom of the vacuum, it should look like a piece of plastic pipe. Make sure that pipe is clear if it isn't the vacuum won't work. I had that problem before with a different vacuum, clear the clog and should take care of the issue. Also if you take the hose off and put your hand over the hose attachment piece you should feel suction, if you don't good indicator that line plugged up.

You can use your fingers to clear it out, if the hole hose is plugged, if you have a snake a or a cable tie, or some flexible use that to snake out the bottom part of the tube. It might make a mess so I'd do it outside or in the garage.

See if that is part of your problem, otherwise it has a canister to catch the dirt, make sure all the vents and ports are clear going into the canister .

I vacuum seems not to have any suction; for a while the attachment had suction; now it does not.


If you have checked for the obvious clogs and obstructions, be sure the belt is working properly and if necessary, attach a new belt to the unit. At the same time, clean the beater brush and lubricate the ends between the brush and the hard rubber holders.
I would also check the hose for any potential leakage.

No suction once hose is plugged in. If I go to another recepticle it has plenty of suction until I plug the hose in. I just bought this house and the owner was unable to help with operating manuals due to...


If it's just the one outlet, then there's probably a clog in the pipe between that outlet and the main pipe. You may be able to clear it by plugging the hose into a working outlet, placing other end to non-working outlet, and turning vacuum on. This may provide enough suction to **** out the clog.
If not, you'll probably need to use a mini plumber's snake to try to remove it.

No suction when using the hose.


The beater bar is supposed to stop when the vac is upright. Sounds like you have a clog. There are several access points to check, fairly easy to clear obstructions.

Suction is so light when using attachments will not pick up anyth


If there is no obstructions, its probably the motor has burnt out or shorted, causing loss of suction. Good luck.

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--

No suction from base or hose attachment


Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

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.

Connecting hoses on Kirby G4


The hose attaches in place of the beater-bar head unit. To remove the head unit, lift the headlight assembly, then turn the square gray Kirby emblem counter-clockwise 3/4 of the way around until the red triangle on the square portion aligns with the red triangle on the base unit (this disengages the belt). Then flip the silver metal fastener that was underneath the headlight to release the head unit and remove the head unit. To attach the hose, simply line it up so that the safety button is engaged by the hose assembly and then use the metal fastener under the headlight to secure the hose to the base unit.
