Clogged hose by the brush roll

The hose on the bottom of my vaccum by the brush roll repeatedly gets clogged. The brush roll will pick up dirt, but it just remains there and cannot get up through the hose no matter how many times I unclog it. Is it a problem with he motor or having enough power to get it through the hose?

Sometimes there maybe something interfereing with it getting clogged up repeatedly, etc....needle, sure to check to make sure nothing is interefering with the flow....i have seen this many times.....suction can be a problem from the motor but your motor will be noisey

    if it was the motor you would know, did you purchase the machine new, if so it might be filters, if not it could be seals not giving appropriate suction

Brush doesn't spin and there is no suction there either, the brushes move freely when manipulated manually

Check for clog in the hose or what ever connects the nozzel to the collection device. I pick up vaccum cleaners all summer, most new, all clogged, all from the trash.

If possible, take the machine outside, open the collection device, run the motor. Is there suction you can detect anywhere?

Motor runs fine and hose not clogged will not pickup dirt

This may sound silly, but have you checked the belt? A lot of Eureka vacuums use the vac motor to run the brush, and if the brush is not running the vacuum won't pick up. Another thing to check is the condition of the fan blades.. if they get worn they will push air out of the exhaust ports, but not push enough air to pull the dirt into the vacuum bag. Another thing to check is the length of the bristles on the brush... you can change a lot of the bristle strips and save the cost of a whole brush roll.. All of these fixes are under $10.00 (Belt: $1-2, Brush Strip $3-6, Fan $5-10) at most places.

My Eureka vacuum model 4471 does not pick up - the bag is new??

Check to see if the hose and the dirt inlet by the brush roll is open and not clogged. Also if you haven't replaced the belt in a awhile, it may have stretch to the point that it isn't turning the brush roll under load.

When the vaccum is running the motor gets hot & smells & is very noisy.

Sounds like yu may have a clog, either in the inlet by the brush roll, or the hose. If the hose comes loose, see if there is suction there. If no suction then it is clogged. If suction, then the inlet maybe clogged.

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction

Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.

No suction

Fiflters should be replaced at least once a year, they go bad. You could also have a clog in the hose, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll may be clogged. Take the hose off if you can, drop something down it and see if it comes out the other end, if not, then it is clogged. Dirt inlet, you have to remove the bottom plate for one end, the other end is where the hose plugs into. Check it for a clog.

Bissell vaccum problem

Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.
