Re: Reverse Suction

You have a clog either at the inlet by the brush roll or in the hose. Pull the hose and check for suction at the end of the hose, If it is ok there, then you have a clog from where the hose hooked into and the inlet at the bottom. If at the end of the hose there is no suction, take the hose off and see if you see a clog in it. If no clog there, then check all filters, if they get clogged, then air can't flow thru them and no suction.

How do I get reverse suction with the electrolux epic 6000?

I have no idea just what reverse suction would be or how to get it from ANY vac. If you're looking at getting the blowing air from the vac instead of suction, then simply move the hose from the suction end to the exhaust end.

Miele SEB191 reverse suction

If you have had your belt changed lately, try reversing the way that the belt goes on the roller, or "beater brush". When you remove the belt, take note of which side of the belt is over top of the roller/beater brush, and which side is under the roller and, reverse it when you reinstall the belt.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside

Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

No suction - air blowing OUT from tube

Is the air blowing out of the pick-up tube or out of the exhaust tube on the unit? I am assuming the pick-up tube. The installer has hooked your system up to the exhaust tube on the unit. Hook up to the intake on the unit instead.

Stop vacuum from blowing to suction…..

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You’re vacuum is blowing because your (round vacuum) belt is on backwards and is blowing instead of having suction – please reverse the belt and most vacuums have a diagram on the bottom of the vacuum to tell you which way to install. Not knowing the brand name or model #, if you have Questions, Contact you local vac dealer. 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.

No Suction

It should **** back up the water as you move along.
It seems like you have a suction leak or it is plugged with debris.
I would take it apart and clean.
