Hello,
This usually means you have a blockage between the roller brush and the bag in the machine. You won't have any suction to pull dirt into the bag. The dirt will fall back onto the roller brush and out the front of the machine.

I hope this helps

    Yes, the hose between the roller brush and the bag was plugged. Cleaned that out and my vac works great! Thanks, WonderTech.

I have a sears 12 gallon vac/ blower. It is blowing air, how do I get it to vacuum.


If it is blowing air, then that air must be getting in, to be blown out. That inlet is where the suction occurs. Check all seals and filters.

Eureka vacuum blowing dust into the air


Check the leak (where the dust come from); maybe you need to tighten or reseat one or more part in that area.

Is a shop vac supposed to blow while vacuuming? We've had this for several years and I don't recall it blowing air OUT while I am vacuuming.


You should have two ports on the shopvac. One that is basically your vacuum and one you can use as a blower. Your hose will fit on both connectors. So yes, it would both **** and blow. This is called a "blow-through" system.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

Air escaping from beneath canister.


Yes, this is perfectly normal - all Dyson vacuum cleaners have a gap where the air leaves after it has passed through the vacuum cleaner itself - the air has to come out somewhere and it's always after it made its way past the two filters and the motor :)

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.

Blowing warm air


Is there a part missing on the front of the dirty water tank? On some of these machines, there is block that you take out so you can insert the hose in its place. So if this spot is open, then it can't suck and will be blowing warm air.

HELP!!!!!


The hose is probably clogged. It is supposed to blow out at the filter. It filters the exhaust air so you don't get dust back into the air.
