Check down that hole and see if there is a clog in it. That end goes down to the dirt inlet by the brush roll and should be open.

Remove handle from hose electrolux


You don't have to "remove" the handle from the hose to attach other attachments, just depress the tab at the end of the hose and pull the upper wand loose then use the "adapter" to use the dusting brush or simply snap the crevice tool in place to use. If the handle won't come loose from the upper wand, then the described "tab" needs replaced as it's locking up the parts. Hope that helps!

Lost suction


Pushing air out of the brush roll area, or from the motor exhaust? If there are no obstructions in the hoses, check your heap filter in the dust bin. If you have not replaced it in the last year, this might be the issue. Same goes for the belt, even if attached it stretches out and will start to slip. If you don't have proper brush speed, it can't pick up so the suction motor can pull it away. Change you belt every 6 months, no more than once a year. You should take a F1 Hepa filter and a style 4 belt.

WHEN WE USE THE HOSE ON THE VACUUM DUST AND PET HAIR COME OUT OF THE HOLE HELP


A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
Check the filter, and change if dirty.

When I try to disconnect the hose in order to use the hand held hose with an attachment, the dust from the bottom flies into the air. How does this opening get blocked off to ensure the dust enters...


It is a matter of Physics. It seems like you have it running when you change the hose. ?? That's a no-no.
Basically you will have o take it apart until you know how it works or wont work

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking...


I believe on the front top part of the vacuum is a cover. you need to take it off. behind it you will find at least two filters. You will need to replace the hepa filter and the other one should be like a thin black sponge, you can just wash that one.
If its not that then there are two clips on either side of the base of the vacuum. Pull those clips outwards, then lift the top off, you will see the tube that the hose attaches to. Pull the hose off and check for debris in there.
I hope that works for you.

good luck

My hose tools wont pick up. when hose tools unattached suction is fine and will **** my hand fiercely, but once tool attached no suction..... how am i gonna pick up cat hair from seats now?! its a dyson...


I have a DC04 and the hose tools are a open hole.The only reason they want pick up is they are blocked.If you say they are sucking your hand when not attached.Make sure the hose is not blocked by taking off the cover at the front.Allso check the cylinder rubber seal is sealing the dust container.Thats the only problem i had with mine.Good luck.

Either the filters are clogged, the hose has a clog in it, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Pull the hose off and see if you have suction at the end of the hose, that will tell you which way to look for a clog.

I cant open it


Before doing anything, make sure that the vacuum is unplugged from the outlet. After that, you are now ready to open your vacuum. Here are the steps to do so:
a) First, remove the dust cap by pressing the "cup release" button on the top rear right of the cleaner and pulling the dust cap away from the top. Set aside.
b) These first three steps are optional, but will make the process a bit easier... Now remove the hose attachment by twisting the base of the hose clockwise until the tabs line up and allow you to easily remove. Set aside.
c) Now remove the floor nozzle attachment by depressing the silver lock button located on the bottom back of the cleaner. While this is pressed in, pull the body of the vacuum and the carpet cleaning nozzle away from each other. (This is easier with two people, but can be done alone.) These steps will make the cleaner less bulky for you to take apart and work with.
1) Now on the back of the cleaner, you will see 9 screws. (3 on each side of the rear of the body, 1 on each side of the rear base of the body, and 1 in the middle of the hose actuator valve [the knob that switches between floor and hose]). Unscrew all of these and set them aside. *see note at bottom
2) Now that these 9 screws are removed and placed aside, you will now be able to remove the rear panel of the vacuum. Do so and move it out of your way. Keep in mind that the power cord runs through a hole in this panel and cannot be removed entirely without disconnecting wires (which I wouldn't recommend if you don't know what you're doing).
3) Now on the inside rear of the cleaner, your should see 1 screw in the top right holding the power cord in place. 1 screw below that on the right side holding a number of white and black wires in place. There will be 1 screw on top right of the gray plastic that the floor nozzle had attached to, and 1 on the bottom left. There are also 2 screws at the same height (1 on the left and 1 on the right) about a quarter way up from the bottom screwed into the green plastic on the left and right of the gray plastic floor nozzle attachment. Remove these 2 screws.
4) Now look on the outside left and right of the base of the cleaner. You should see 4 screws (2 on each side). Remove these.
5) Now you should be able to remove the front panel to expose the motor which will be surrounded by black foam and resting in a circular hole in the bottom. Voila! You have now opened up your vacuum cleaner.

*Something to keep in mind before removing the screw from the hose actuator valve is to pay attention to the position of the knob. Also look inside the hole of the hose coupling while turning the knob to note how the valve moves inside the cleaner. When reassembling, make sure that this is in the correct position.
