Make sure the top (above the cones) and the bottom (ball) filters are clean. The whistling sound is due to the bottom filter either being clogged or poorly seated and the air is escaping around the rubber seal, making the whistling sound.

Makes a extremely loud alarm sounding noise while vacuuming and the cord in the back doesn't have good suction at all.


When you hear the whistling noise, means there is a clog either in the hose itself, or in the elbow where it goes in or from where the bottom tube bends and goes up. To clean hose, remove it, stick on top of broom/mop handle and push all the way down to clear out any debris on it.

My dirt devil reaction is spitting out dirt everywhere. how do i fix this?


Sound like you have an obstruction in the suction path. check the foot (bottom) check for suction at the hose for blockage. the blockage is where you lose suction.

Vacuum is whistling and there is no suction through the hose.


Sometimes mine "wand" has no suction too. . . Make sure the vacumn column is clicked into the "standing" position, don't have it at an angle. Also you may have to play with the settings on the bottom part AND the power button together. I think this vacumn sucks (pardon the pun) mine turns off after 10 minutes of use, then I let it sit for an hour and then it'll start again. POS!

Nutone 353 central vacuum....all of a sudden, poor suction at all house outlets.. Checked hoses and pipes for obstruction...none found


I think this unit has a utility valve on the front. If so, do you have good suction at this valve? If not, disconnect the inlet piping and check the suction directly from the inlet. Make sure the utility valve is closed while checking the suction on the inlet. If you have good suction, you have an open pipe or valve somewhere in the house. If you have any vacpans, check these first. Next, turn the unit on and walk through the house and listen for air whistling. If you do not have good suction from the inlet at the unit with the utility valve closed, replace your bag and look for a secondary filter that may be plugged. Good Luck!

Dynamite Quick Vac there is no suction


If it sounds like the vacuum motor is running then you have a clog. Clean out any hoses where a clog may be. If the vacuum motor does not sound like it is running then you will need to take it to a vacuum repair shop. Or you need to make sure the canister is attached correctly. If the canister is not fitting correctly then you will lose suction. Hope this helps, post back.
