If the vacuum will run without the hose attached, does the suction seem ok at the opening where the hose goes into? If so, then you have a clog in the hose or down below where the dirt is first sucked up. If suction is poor at the vacuum, then check the filters, they go bad after awhile.

Hi, my Bissell 3920 has lost almost all of its suction. I checked the hoses and tubes but did not find any blockages. Filters are clean. Thanks.


Hi, Have you checked and made sure the floor plate is secure and tight without any gaps around the edges? If that's ok then check the suction hose where it bends down to the floor unit,, lots of times dirt,hair and stuff collects there when the filter was plugged up. remove the floor plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a wire coat hanger to run up the suction hose and back out and clean out any debris, also check the entire hose for blockage ( top to bottom ). if this is all clear and you still have little suction - then the problem could be the vacume motor itself

Problems with Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Vacuum very little suction coming from the hose. cleaned filter and suction has not improved. Please help. Thanks


Two possible solutions come to mind. First off, there is a clog in your hose. If you have another vacuum, try using the hose on that one to **** it out.
If that doesn't work, you may need to have the clutch replaced. Check your warranty. The clog wont be covered, but the clutch will be,

No suction


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The problem is going to be the filter. THis kind of vacuum basically replaces the bag with a simple filter and the vacuum cleaner simply pulls all the dirt on to the filter so as soon as you start vacuuming you lose suction. The more expensive bagless vacuums spin the dirt through a chamber to minimise the material getting to the filter but unfortunately that wont help you. I could be wrong but i fix vacuums for a living and see this all the time. ITs a bit of a silly design in my opinion. You can test my theory by removing the filter and really thoroughly cleaning the little cracks with a brush or better still an air compressor and the suction will improve...untill you vacuum dirt that is.
Hope this helps, if you want more info just drop me an email.
Happy vacuuming :)

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA)
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough (not loads) of suction till it reaches the cleaning head. The head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all.
It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off.
is it fixable or is it dead?
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.
