My dyson dc 54 loses suction after a few seconds of suctions


Hi,

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems.

This does point towards a blockage of some kind and I would ask you to check the inlet on the cyclone itself as well as the bin. Please also brush down and tap out the cyclone shroud. Make sure to do this outside over a bin as it will produce very fine dust.

If you have further difficulty, please contact Dyson directly on the numbers provided as there may be something more technical that requires further diagnostics.

If you continue to have difficulty, please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Electrolux Ultraactive losing suction and turbo head brush won't spin. Canister is empty, no blockage in hose or nozzle of turbo head, filters cleaned, but Hepa not replaced recently. Could that cause it...


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few potential solutions you should try to fix the suction of your Electrolux vacuum. The first thing you should check is the height of your brush-roll. Your height setting may be too high for the type of floor you are vacuuming. Raise or lower your brush-roll depending on if you are vacuuming on carpet, tile, or wood surfaces.The second thing you should check is the vacuum bag. If it is full your vacuum can lose suction. This is simply remedied by replacing it with a new and clean bag. The third reason for a loss of suction is your hose is clogged. Check the hose for debris or foreign objects that may be obstructing the flow of air in the vacuum. The last potential reason for your vacuum losing suction could be the brush-roll itself. If it is clogged with dirt and hair it may not be spinning and not picking anything up. Check to see the condition of your brush-roll. If it is clogged remove the debris.

BAD SUCTION WITH ATTACHMENTS


You may have a small leak in the hose somewhere, that may be getting bigger, thus losing more suction.

Valve sucks in and hoover loses suction


Your vacuum may have a suction release valve that is opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere.

Does the vacuum lose suction when in the floor mode if the belt is broken?


To put it simply, no. By floor mode I'm assuming you're stopping the brush roll from turning so that you can clean hard surface floors instead of carpet. When the brush roll doesn't turn you do lose agitation which vibrates the carpet so that the dirt is more easily picked up by the vacuum. But you don't lose suction because the brush is not turning.

Not picking stuff up and no suction in hose as well, suction sounds good until you go to vaccuum floor


Because this unit is bagless there are more gaskets to seal the suction portion of the vac. you are most likely missing a seal, can you remove the basket and place your hand near the suction on the vacuum? it is shielded so you wont lose fingers. if there is suction there, look at the bottom of the basket for a gasket, same for the top

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.

Losing suction in upright position


It's probably your belt. It could be broken or stretched. If broken or stretched, the roller won't spin very well, if at all. Another possibility is that there may be debris blocking suction near the roller. Hope this helps.
