Hose has very little suction

My vacume had started to make a bad smell when I used it so I cleaned the roller bristles, the canister and the filter thingy above the canister. That fixed the smell but now the hose has almost no suction. I've checked to make sure everything was fitting right and felt around for gaps where the suction could be going. I also checked the hose for blockage. Nothing. I need my hose attachments! Help!

For me, the problem turned out to be the little red filter on the water tank. It needed to cleaned badly. That took care of the problem. Hope this helps the next person(s).

How do I get rid of the bad smell coming from my filter queen


Change all 4 of the filters, and wash the dirt container with soap, water and a little bleach. The only other thing that would cause a bad smell would be the actual motor, but that would be more of a burning smell. Good luck!

The 70210 is a few months old. It doesn't ****. There is suction going into the canister, but it's not reaching the hose. I've ensured there's no blockage in the hose, blown it clean with...


IF you can use a broom stick to run through the hose to make sure that there is nothing in it, then you need to check the output filters. They get plugged up with fine dust particles and the suction is reduced. The output filters can usually be rinsed out.

My vacumn has a aweful smell coming from it when in use. Not motor smell.


smells are usually from bacteria. I have seen this before and you can get O.K results by rinsing the machine with cleaning soloution. I like ****-n-span. try to use a cleaner that you like the smell of as it will leave a little of that smell behind. use the vacum in the wet type aplication and use it to **** up the cleaning solution mixed with warm water with about the same mix as you would use to clean a floor. then after the machine fills up let the cleaning solution set in there for 5 to 15 minutes. dump out the cleaning soloution and repeat the process with clean warm water. If it has gotten really bad then you made need to repeat the entire process one or two more times. I also take the pick up hose and clean it with some cleaning solution then rinse outside with a water hose.

I took the vacuum apart and cleaned it. Now there is an odor coming from the round filter and the vacuum is not picking anything up.


  • hi there
  • Does the odor smell like burnt rubber....if so you may have burned out the belt which is common. The filter can smell if you have pets and the machine will blow the odor back in to the room after the filter gets older.Check to see that the roller brush is spinning when it is turned on if not shut it off and try to turn it manually with your hands. If it turns very easily the belt gone if it is almost impossible to turn you need a new roller brush.You can replace the filter to help with the smell but if it is the belt you smell it will go away in time. Also make sure that you have the container on perfectly as if it is not it will not create a perfect seal and you will have very little suction. The other thing you can check is the hose to see if the suction is good through it. If the hose has good suction then the power head may be plugged with something and you will need to get a screwdriver and take the bottom plate off the same way as if you were changing the belt and then you can look for a blockage as well as access the belt and roller brush. I hope this was helpful to you ...good luck

Loss of suction


very simple fix. took me a good hour to figure this out but... first take off your brushhead. via popping the clip so all u have is the circle showing then turn on the vacum using the hose. put the hose over the hole where the brush head goes.. and give it a shake etc to losen up whatever it is u got stuck up in that hose. mine was xmas tree/cat hair mix. which is the death of any vacum lol.. but that noise on the top of the can is cause by suction loss. just use the hose to **** out whatever u got jammed in there and use your finger if u need too. and then no more canister noise.

Vacum won't ****


Do you have good suction right out of the canister without the hose attached? If so, AND your hose isn't plugged, you must have a pretty good sized hole somewhere in the hose. If you don't have suction at the canister, pull the filter cover off the top-back of the machine and remove the filter. This is where all of the air that the machine pulls in is exhausted. If something is plugged here, it will greatly reduce your suction. If you still haven't found the problem, you could have a problem with the fan assembly on the motor. But usually this is accompanied by some noise from the motor, but not always. Good Luck!!

you might have a leak on the suction side...perhaps the housing is not properly secured, or there is a **** in the black plastic hose.

Dirt Devil Vibe No Suction


Sounds like there is a clog somwhere. Check the hose - you can undo the hose with a screwdriver but because of that bend use a pipe cleaner or a long wire to see if there is anything blocking the tube. Next check the dirt channels from the bottom of the hose on the Dirt Devil Vibe once the hose has been taken off. Check that the bottom part is clear and then tip the machine over, remove the bottom sole plate (4 screws, 2 at the front and 2 at the back near the rear wheels) to check the roller brush - sometimes if there is an obstruction in the dirt channel from the roller brush suction will not get through.

Dont forget however that there are two filters on the Dirt Devil Vibe. The top filter has to be unscrewed and then unlocked. Tap it a couple of times to dislodge any dirt and then lift out the second part filter at the top of the bin.

Dont forget to rate if this advice works. Thanks.
