I have sorted it! Managed to take the long hose part off and it was full of dust and totally blocked! Cleared it out and now it's as good as new!

Vacuum cleaners: Loss of Suction


A common complaint about vacuum cleaners, regardless of the brand, is loss of suction. The motor runs fine, there seems to be plenty of power, and even some suction, but the vacuum just won't pick up even the lightest of items. There are some very simple checks and fixes to this problem most of the time.
The primary causes are: clogged hose, full bag, leaky hose.
Clogged hose: this is probably the most common cause, and will result in a damaged motor if not cleared.
Check: Remove hose from vacuum and wands. Holding one end, drop a marble or small ball into the opening and allow to roll through. If it doesn't come through the end, then the hose is clogged.
Solution: If you have a canister vacuum with an exhaust port, try connecting the hose to this and turning machine on. If the clog isn't too bad, this may clear it. If not, more extreme measures may be needed.
Never attempt to clear a clog with a coat hanger or similar length of wire, as this could easily puncture the house. Do not use water or high air pressure gun to clear hose.
Full bag: Check bag. Change if necessary. If it seems the bag should hold a little more, well, it's not worth replacing a motor, or the vacuum, trying to find out. Bag pores are easily clogged if the machine is used for cleaning construction areas where sheet rock dust is abundant. Ensure you’re using genuine bags for your machine.
Leaky hose: Over time, hoses suffer from normal wear and tear, and often abuse, resulting in cracks and holes, often too small to notice. Hoses need to be replaced at this time, and this generally results in a dramatic increase in "suction". There simply is no fix for a leaky hose.
Solution: Always store the hose properly to avoid kinking, crimping, smashing, etc. Avoid stepping on the hose, or leaving in an area where it may get stepped on , driven over, or smashed. Avoid pulling the vacuum by the hose, or otherwise stretching/stressing the hose.

Sucion very weak. When I take off the hose it seems to be ok but when I put it back the suction weakens. I have checked all the hose for blockages etc., but none?


I presume you have checked that the attachments are not blocked and put a new bag in? If so the hose is blocked. Take it off and run water through it to check (messy so be careful). Better if you can do it outside with a hose .
Don't put it back on the vac until you've swung it round a few times to clear all the water (don't hit anything do it outside in the road!!!) and left it to dry.

No suction


I wonder exactly where you've looked for blockages... The fact is that if the vacuum motor is working (you would surely have said if it wasn't) there should be suction. The question is: why isn't it getting to the end of the hose? First thing you can try is to remove the hose from the hole where it enters the top of the bag compartment - check for possible obstruction at that point, then switch on and hold your hand over the hole to check for suction. If there's suction there, then there definitely is an obstruction in the hose. If there's no (or very little) suction at the top of the bag compartment, check the filter at the bottom of the bag compartment (below the bag). I assume you have been using a bag and filter! If all these things pass the test, then you have a serious problem with the vacuum turbine and you'll probably need professional help.
I hope this is useful. If so, please remember to rate my response. If you need more advice, post a reply here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Good luck!

I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way...


Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find a large blockage of debris. Hope that helps!

No suction


well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (maybe in the bag compartment towards the top. You can take out the filter holder and plug the hose in there and run the unit . Does the blockage come out? If not, Try shaking the hose, or you can put a stiff wire in it to try to free it. Do not run water through it. If there is no blockage at all, then you will probably need to take it to a service center. But I am pretty confident that we are looking at a clog situation. Let me know if this fixesya! Thanks, Rene (vacuum Doctor)

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.

Check the suction at the vac, without the hose, if it is strong, then you hose is clogged. If it is weak, filters could be the problem, one is the back where the bag sits, the other is on the top, you can see it when you raise the lid.
