Snaking the hose won't change the suction unless you pushed an obstruction deeper into it. Try dropping a coin through the handle and shake it through to the other end. If the coin stops it will rattle at the obstruction. If the coin passes through your issue is either and inlet with the door ajar or a loss of suction due to an obstruction in the pipe or a leak at the machine, either the gasket or filter or similar. Post back.
To test each inlet for suction, mark a tissue with a # for each and move your hose inlet to inlet , then go to the pail and see what came through.This will help to determine if you have a blockage in your main line or a branch of the internal piping.

No suction. Changed the bag and dust is all over the top of the head and the bag is totally empty. Suction dial is turned all the way up.


Likely you have a plug in the most somewhere. If you have a plumbing snake, run it through the hose to dislodge the clog or you can try blowing through the hose to confirm it is plugged.

Electrolux pet lover loss of suction through the hose


I would use a snake for plumbing (sinks) and feed it down the hose to find and clear this blockage if you can remove the hose compressed air may also work.

Electrolux cyclone power 1900w no suction with main attachment


If you've tried several different attachments and they all exhibit the same poor suction problems, you should completely check the parts of the vac that are common to all the parts that have the problem.

Since the motor creates good suction without attachments, I suspect the problem is the hose. Either an obstruction or a crack. Typically, if you block the end of the hose, the pitch of the motor's sound will go up slightly - like it it is spinning faster (it is). You can keep removing parts from the vac intake until the motors sound decreases - and that will indicate the part that has the obstruction. If it is a hose, you should clear the obstruction with a "snake" or other object like a pole.

If the motor sound does not change, then there is likely a split or crack somewhere between the intake of the vac and the device. You'll have to check it carefully - or if possible - connect it to the output of a vac and seal / cover the end. Feel along the length of the hose, etc. for air being blown out. Repair the opening and you should be "good to go"

Good luck!

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.

Vac wont pull/**** anything while we try to vac floor,


Hello RonD30,
If you are getting suction thru the hose and not from the bottom section.. you have a clog somewhere inline with the base area... If you have access to a shop vac ... unplug the Hoover, open up the base and remove the beater bar /belt assembly.. then hold the shop vac nozzle on the point of entry to where the Hoover pulls the debris into the dirt compartment. I am fairly certain you have a clog somewhere in that ducting.. Stubborn ones may need a little motivation.. so you may be able to get an electricians snake or metal coat hanger bent to release the jam..
Hope that helps..
Regards,
Rick..
And you are right , regarding Lowes..but don't exclude Home Depot from the same rating..LOL Once the sale is done.. so are they...

We have a beam built in vacumn system ( old one) there is virtually no suction coming through the hose. I suspect some sunflower seeds were picked up and clogging it somewhere. What to do?


You need to figure out if it is the hose that is clogged, or in the piping. If in the hose, you can use a long plumbers snake to try to remove the clog. If you have no suction in none of the outlets, then I would suspect the hose, or the main pipe came loose from the cannister. Also are you sure that the cannasiter is coming on? If the blockage is in the piping, you can use the plumbers snake there also.

No suction


If you have low suction at the end of the hose, then you either have a clog in the hose or a clogged filter. Take the hose off and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then the dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged.

No suction


1, Does the blower (discharge) side blow bunches of air??
Yes: Something is clogged from the bag to the hose end. Try blowing out the hose from the discharge side.
Or: The bag is not properly seated. Make sure that the plastic piece is properly inserted into the bag, and properly aligned and locked in place with the suction intake.
No: Something is wrong in the motor/fan assembly.
2: The hose has a plastic cover on the end farthest from the unit. Make sure that this cover is closed. If it is open, your suction will go way down.
