Thank you it was helpful. I will try to see what is blocking the vacuum from picking up. I have heard that if you stick a clothes hanger up in the vacuum (unplugged) you can pull out debris that is preventing it from picking up.

Even though it feels like there is suction it may be running up to 100% power. Ensure that bag is in good shape and that all filters are clean. Also check the entire brushroll area. Make sure that the belt is not stretched and is in good condition. The brushroll should be clean of any hairs and other foreign objects and should rotate freely by hand. The best way to check a brushroll. Stand a brushroll vertically on a carpet or other non slip surface, hold other end and then give the brush a good spin, it should spin very smoothly, with virtually no noise, scrapes, jams or resistance. If there is resistance or a problem, clean the end caps and on a Hoover it may need the bearings oiled.

Did you check down by the brush roll? If the hose has suction, then the problem has to be in the nozzle asm. The hose having suction tells you that the main part of the vacuum is working ok.

How to Fix Vacuum That Lost Suction
If there's ample suction but the machine won't pick up material, check the hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the vacuum cleaner and inspect it for any cracks or holes. If any are found, use duct tape to repair them - it might not look great, but it does the job! Where there's a blockage in the vacuum cleaner, clean it out by pushing a long, thin object like a broom handle through the entire length of thre hose. You can then reconnect the hose and try the vacuum again. It's worth checking the hoses a few times every year for cracks or splits.
If everything else appears to be fine but the vacuum still won't pick up, take a look at the brushes. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and clean hair and other material from the brushes, especially at the sides.

Will not pickup


Hi, what you need to do is check for suction at the inlet hose that detaches from the roller brush. If you have real good suction there and you plug it back in to the brush, it should pick up if the roller is turning. Turn it over to see if the belt is on the motor and the brush will roll when it is turned on, but be very careful not to get you're fingers near it! If you have no suction from the hoses, you have a blockage in the hoses. You can take the hose loose and try and run a long broom handle, it may be long enough to clear what ever is caught inside. Its just a matter of cleaning all hoses and making sure the belt is not broken and the bag is not full if it has a bag. Let me know what you find.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

My hoover has no suction at the nozzle, though it has strong suction at the hose. This problem started after I replaced the vacuum bag for the first time.


there is a blockage behind the roller brush remove the roller plate and the roller and check the inlet hose for a blockage also remove the bag and chek the inlet to the bag for some type of obstruction. Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb, N.M.

The power will not come one remotely!!


The reset is not the problem. If you have suction at the vac itself , but no elsewhere., you have blockage in your main line, or your hose. Try dropping a coin thru the handle of the hose and shake it all the way thru the other end. If your hose is clear the obstruction is in your piping. If your hose is clogged you must back out the blockage by sucking it back thru the handle.
Go to each inlet with a coin and touch the contacts inside the throat of the inlet...., 2 little brass spring loaded pins. If you can feel suction move on one inlet at a time. If you have no suction at any inlet your blockage is in the main line. If you have suction at some inlets , your blockage is in a branch. Try to pinpoint the closest inlet to the vac where you have no suction. Then put another vac like a shop vac up to the inlet and **** the blockage back out if possible. ..What wedges in must back out the way it went in. Post back with more info if this doesn't work

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . Unless there is a bad sound coming from your vacuum i would suggest you have a blockage. This machine is prone to getting blockages in 3 different places.
  1. at the base behind the brush.
  2. Inside the main suction hose - this should be removeable so you can drop a small coin through. If it doesnt fall easily viola blockage found.
  3. Where the dirt enteras the chamber or bag.
Basically start by removing all hoses and filters and turn machine on put your hand over all inlet and exit points provided you can feel airflow at one of these points work backwards from there and identify the point at which you no longer feel airflow.
HAPPY vacuuming !

Suction/Brush not working


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here.
There are a couple of common reasons that your electrolux vacuum cleaner would appear to have lost it's suction. The first and most common is that it has actually broken a belt. If the belt is broken the brushes won't spin and it will not pick up dirt. It is easy to test simply turn the vacuum on, release the handle (as if you were about to vacuum carpet) and lift up the head and see if the brushes are spinning. If not i can supply you with a new belt.
If the brushes are spinning then your next most likely cause is that there is a blockage in the vacuum somewhere. Test this by turning machine on and checking the suction at the hose (as if your were going to vacuum the couch) if it is poor then remove hose and fish out blockage. If it is ok you may have a blockage between hose and the brush of the vacuum.
If it is neither of these problems i can trouble shoot over the phone if you live in Australia 0269215200 or by email nelsonvacuums@netspace.net.au
Happy Vacuuming.. :)

No suction


If you have low suction at the end of the hose, then you either have a clog in the hose or a clogged filter. Take the hose off and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then the dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged.

Loss of suction in my Hoover Windtunnel bagless selfpropelled upright


Did you check the dirt inlet by the brush roll, filters ok, they should be replaced once a year. Belts can look fine, but if they are a few months old, I am sure they have stretched and the brush roll will not turn like it should under load. It is possible that the motor isn't running up to speed, thereby reducing suction.
