You most likely have a gasket out of place.
1. On the bottom, there is a panel held in by two screws. Open that up. Inside you will see a white gasket that should be aligned with the hole. If it is not aligned, you will not get good suction.

2. The other gasket will you require you to take out the two screws on the blue cover (at the base of the unit where the dial is). You will see a black plastic tube with two clear tubes attached. Remove the two tubes. remove the screw holding the black plastic tube in. Inside is a red gasket. Ensure that is in the correct place. Reattach screw + clear tubing. Reattach blue cover.

Let me know if this helps.

How to regain my suction on the Delonghi vacuum cleaner?


Check the area directly behind the brush for obstructions before the hose connection

Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

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!

We have broken pieces of black plastic that we have no idea where they came from


It's possible they came from the fan/impeller. If so, there will be minimal to no suction at the power nozzle or hose end. Remove the hose end from the powerhead to check suction.

Dyson DC17 Animal does not have enough suction from the wand handle to power the mini turbine head. The wand handle has very little suction.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your wand/hose assembly is blocked. Try following the blockage procedure in your user guide or visit our website's support section where you can use our self help guide to diagnose problems.

No suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

My DC05 Dyson suction has stopped...there are no blockages, the seals are good, there seems to be more suction coming from a yellow box which is situated at the top of the removable cannister. There is...


My Dyson had exactly the same problem. I found the problem was caused by a blockage in the hose. Take the hose out where it joins the cleaner (it will come out if you pull it downwards gently) and take the hose out of the handle by squeezing the yellow buttons on either side. I pushed a rubber alkathene pipe down and found a piece of plastic was blocking it even though at first I was sure it wasn't blocked.

KIRBY G-6 RUNS BUT HAS NO SUCTION, BELT IS GOOD, FAN APPEARS TO BE INTACT


1. Put the hose instead of the nozzle and see if suction is good with the hose. If it is – brush roll may be worn out (bristles must be sticking out of the nozzle by about 1/8 of an inch).
2. If there is no suction with the hose either – check if bag is not overfilled to the point where dirt is blocking the fill tube hole.
3. If two above are fine – something must be blocking the air passage from the fan to the bag. Check for clogs the fill tube (tube inside the cloth bag) and mini emptor (bag bottom plastic part) and also see if there is nothing in the exhaust on the vacuum. You may not even see it so use a piece of wire. Once I found a sock there and it was so close to the fan that I could not see it in the hole and got a grip of it only a hook made out of old coat hanger.
