Either the brush roll is not turning, or you have a clog at the inlet by the brush roll or in the hose.

My vacuum has poor suction and I've checked the hoses and cleaned the filters. I don't know what's wrong.


I can't say this is your problem but many people assume their vacuum has no suction because it will not pick up hair or lint from the carpet, when the problem is the belt is stretched and slipping and not spinning the brush roll fast enough. Replace your belt twice a year to clean carpets properly.

My Hoover Remedy Multi-cyclonic vacuum has no suction to pick up from carpet


You either have a broken belt or a clog of lint buildup inside the vacuum.

Does not pick up lint on carpet


I have a four suggestions. First, check the wand and see if the suction vent is completely closed. If this little vent has the slightest opening, the suction is reduced. cSecond,if that's not the case, you might want to check the brush/roller area. Threads and fibers caught on the brushes can prevent the vacuum from picking up lint. Third, make sure there are no fibers in the wheel of the vacuum head. And fourth, make sure the bag is not full! I often forget to check and back and a full bag is one of the main reasons a vacuum will not pick up items. I hope this helps. If one of my suggestions solves your problem, please contact Fixya and rate my solution!

Our machine works 3 minutes - and then 10 minutes it does not


The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.

Does not pick up loose lint or fuzz from carpet.


Sounds like the belt is loose or it's not on at all. Make sure the belt is wrapped around the brush and is locked in by the metal.

Dyson o7 animal pick up problems


Hi.

If your machine is A few years old it may need new brush roller fitted.

To check roller for wear lie machine on the floor & pull back head end as if vaccuming carpet.

Now get A rule or straight edge hold this over brush roller & sole plate oppening.

Now rotate brush slowly by hand the bristles of the brush should just kiss the edge of rule. If ther is a gap you will need toreplace the roller.
