Will not suck

The vacuum will suck the debris up but it also blows it out the back of the vacuum onto my feet. We have blown the hoses clear. The belt is new and the filters are new.

You must still have a clog, check the dirt inlet down by the brush roll(#23) for a clog. Do you have suction at the hose end, if you do, then it is clogged down below. If you don't then either the hose or filters are clogged.

My Bissell has been new filters, belt and had the hoses cleaned. Still blows dirt out the back onto my feet and has no suction.

The first place to look is to see if you have a clog where the dirt flows into the vacuum down by the brush roll. This is a very common place for clog, it may be back in deep where it is hard to see.

The filters are new, the belt is new, I cleaned the hoses but my Bissel seems to blow the dirt out the back onto my feet help

There is probably a clog somewhere. Start by checking the tube where the air is sucked into the vacuum by the brushroll

Stick vacuum

It sounds like your head is blocked. Remove the head from the vacuum. get a metal coat hanger, straighten it out and bend a small hook on one end. Insert the hook into the head from the vacuum end until it stops, revolve it 1 or 2 times and pull it back out. If there is debris on the end, keep doing it until no more debris. Shake the head upside down to remove more debris. If you can access the bottom of the pickup tube, blow air into it with a compressor until it blows clear. try the head again ( you may need to disassemble the head to get that blockage out - likely it is hair causing the blockage).
Hope this helps!!

Eureka vaccuum blowing out and not sucking in

Hi There,
I am going to assume you are talking about a Eureka upright vacuum.
The cause for this is generally either
A) Broken Belt - Which you can easily fix by changing belt
B) Blockage in the hose somewhere - Basically test the suction with the machine turned on with you attachment hose and see if you have suction. If you do check the belt and make sure you clear out any muck left around the roller.
If you need Eureka vacuum belts go to

Good day, I have a EN Vision Dirt Devil upright, 12 amp, wide 15" nozzle. My vacume is blowing out insead of sucking up the dirt from the carpet. Can you help me? What should I do? Thank you...

It's probably the brush "kicking" the dirt out, rather than it being blown out. This happens if there's a clog in the airflow system somewhere. This could be anywhere from the power head above the brush to the tank where the hose connects.
1. Detach hose at both ends. Drop a coin in one end, lift that end up until coin falls out the other end. If it doesn't, there's a blockage that needs to be cleared. You may be able to do this by using a broom handle to push the clog through. Push the broom handle through the power head end.
2. With the hose detached, check the power head connection for blockages. Drop the coin in and see if it drops through. If not, use a wooden spoon handle, or similar blunt object to push the clog back toward the brush, then pull or vacuum it out.
3. Check the filter and make sure it's clean,
4. Remove the dirt catcher and check bottom of holder right above motor. There's a screen here to prevent debris from getting to the motor. Clear any dirt and debris from it.

Try the vacuum and see it this has helped.

Dirt Devil bagless upright. sucks up dirt in the front and spits it out in the back. I have taken it apart to check for visible clogs in hoses and checked belt and rollers all of which are fine. what next?

There seems to be no vacuum drawing the debris away from the brush head. Remove the debris canister to check for air blowing into it. Check particularly, the area where the brush head pivots off of the upright portion. Hope this helps!

Canister doesn't rotate; debris blows back out.

Check for clogs. That could be the problem with the mess getting spread around and not being sucked up.

Here's a fix that could help you with your upright issue.

There is no suction at all when using the vacuum.

Replace the bag or if it has a dust container, empty the container. If you have done this, turn unit on and place your hand over the mouth of the unit to see if there is any vacuum (suction). If not, then the hole or hose is probably plugged with dirt/hair or something else. Disconnect the hose from the unit and blow through it. Airflow should be easy with no resistance. If you encounter resistance (it is difficult to blow air through the hose) you have to remove the debris blocking it. Take a coat hanger, unravel it into one long wire and make a VERY SMALL hook at the end. Push this down the hose and try to hook the ball of debris and pull it out. You may have to do this several times to clear the hose.

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!

Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
