The "fan blades" will get clogged with a fine layer of "micro dirt" with each use. Scrubbing it gently with an old toothbrush and some 409/windex/fantastic will greatly improve the efficiency of the unit.
If it was a sudden loss of vaccum, check to make sure there is a good seal between the vac and the water canister. There is supposed to be a foam seal there on some (possibly all?) models. If that seal is missing, you will have almost zero vacuum.
Hope it's one of these fixes!

I have a model DC3 rainbow thar has lost suction. what can i do to fix it


Check suction at intake without any hose connected. If that is good, then connect hose and check suction again. If that is poor, then you have a clog. If still good, then check power nozzle by getting into the belt area.

EF 1750 has lost suction power. There is a noticable decrease in suction power even at the power unit inlet.


Disconnect the actual pipe where it meets the vac. Then test the intake for suction. If you have poor suction still, check the intake itself from inside the vac body for blockage, then check the gasket on the pail for mis-alignement.

If you have suction at the actual intake, your issue will be in the house piping. Look for any damaged inlet doors which are ajar, also look at any inlets you may have recently removed for painting or renovation work. Each inlet has an o ring seal which must be properly aligned. If not aligned you will hear a hiss at the inlet when the door is closed.

Last check where any exposed pipe or pipe joint could have been jarred loose or damaged, basement , garage, etc. Post back to advise what you find

Dyson dc14 has lost suction


Down on the lower right hand side of the vacuum, when you're behind it, there is a little 'J' shaped piece with a purple clip on it. Tilt the vacuum up and unclip this. Usually, people who have these amazing vacuums will accidently **** up things like lollipop sticks/pens/paperclips/etc. that don't bend... and will stay in this piece. This should solve your problem.

Kirby Low Suction


Have you checked the fan? It is what creates the suction. If ok, then you may have a motor problem, sometimes they run but not up to speed, then suction is lowered when that happens.

How to for Belt replacement and solution to suction loss


You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.
