Check to see if you have suction at the unit. If you have suction at the unit, your pipes are stopped up. If you don't have suction, you have a pipe loose under the house. Also you could just have a stopped up hose

Why would a Hoover Windtunnel have no suction?


It could be clogged at the head or throat, or you might have a hole in the hose. Unplug the hose; if you're getting suction where the hose plugs in then the problem is in the hose or the head. If you're not getting suction where the hose plugs in then the problem is in the body, probably the throat. If the problem is in the hose or head, detach the hose from the head and check for suction at the end of the hose. If there's not suction there, then you've got a clog or a hole. If there is suction there, then you've got a clog in then head.

Eureka 439az has no suction. Beater bar spins ok.


First thing I would check is it has a attachment hose, take off the bottom of the vacuum. Where the beater bar is and look for where the hose goes through the bottom of the vacuum, it should look like a piece of plastic pipe. Make sure that pipe is clear if it isn't the vacuum won't work. I had that problem before with a different vacuum, clear the clog and should take care of the issue. Also if you take the hose off and put your hand over the hose attachment piece you should feel suction, if you don't good indicator that line plugged up.

You can use your fingers to clear it out, if the hole hose is plugged, if you have a snake a or a cable tie, or some flexible use that to snake out the bottom part of the tube. It might make a mess so I'd do it outside or in the garage.

See if that is part of your problem, otherwise it has a canister to catch the dirt, make sure all the vents and ports are clear going into the canister .

I installed the Hoover Wind Tunnel Central Vac in my new home. After connecting the wall outlets and successfully turning on the system from the hose control, I discovered there is lots of air flow t


I would recommend checking your wall outlets where the hose plugs in for any type of clog in the tubing. If the vacuum itself has great suction but when you go to the wall outlets that is probably something in the hose that is stuck. If cleared it will most likely have excellent suction throughout the entire system in the house.

No suction once hose is plugged in. If I go to another recepticle it has plenty of suction until I plug the hose in. I just bought this house and the owner was unable to help with operating manuals due to...


If it's just the one outlet, then there's probably a clog in the pipe between that outlet and the main pipe. You may be able to clear it by plugging the hose into a working outlet, placing other end to non-working outlet, and turning vacuum on. This may provide enough suction to **** out the clog.
If not, you'll probably need to use a mini plumber's snake to try to remove it.

No suction


If this is an Electrolux, start by testing the suction at the inlet nearest the vac or at the 30 degree elbow on the left. If you have suction there but not elsewhere, and can hear the vac running when the hose is plugged in you have blockage in your main line between the vac and the rest of the house.
You should first test the hose, then the inlets one by one. Drop a quarter into the handle of the hose and shake it through to the far end. If it comes out your hose is clear. Next mark a tissue with a number and **** it into the hose at each inlet, checking the bucket to see if teh tissue has claered the lines. If none of the tissue make it to the bucket, , get a shop vac, open the inlet nearest the vac and **** the obstruction backwards out the inlet. As blockage clears you will hear thinks moving in the pipe. Post back with results

Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again


I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if any) is clean. All "airways" of vacuums need to be clear of any blockages, since airflow is what makes vacuums work.

No suction


On some units there is a screen that protects the impeller of the motor. If this gets sealed off with debris then it is like putting a potato in the tail pipe of a car. Taking the top off the unit reveals the motor. DO UN-PLUG the unit first from the electrical outlet. Take off the exhaust piping if any to allow the motor to be lifted out of the canister. There is typically enough wire to allow this without taking any wires off. Look at the bottom of the motor to make sure the nut has not spun off the impeller and it is still attached to make suction. The look at the hole (aprox. 2" round) to make sure it is clear of any debris. If it is not clean it and re-install everything. If the impeller is off the motor it is new motor time.

Hope this helps!!

Central Vaccum - Kenmore Model No 34330


Is there suction where the pipe hooks to the cannister? If so, then are all of the outlets without suction? Maybe the hose is plugged. If the hose is ok, and there is suction at the cannister, then **** up a small **** of paper, one for each room outlet, have a number on each piece of paper, Which ever one doesn't ,ake it thru to the cannasiter is the outlet that is plugged. You can use a plumbers snake to clean out a clogged outlet or even a clogged hose.

If the motors are running and sound ok, then there has to be suction at the outlet on the cannister. If the filter bag is old, it may be best to replace it with a new one.
