Hose has almost no suction but system is on


First check the hose for being plugged. Check the filters. One behind the dirt bag. They do get plugged. Also make sure you have the proper dirt bag that's made for that make. I had one come in and no suction and they had installed a new dirt bag but it was not made for that machine and it went over the area where it is suppose to suck air. They said well we went to the store and bought a Kenmore bag but what they did not realize there are several Kenmore models and they all take different size bags.

Green light on comes on when the vacuum is off the ground


It's supposed to do that. There's a small, very sensitive microphone in the elbow of the dirt passage coming off the back of the machine. As long as it's in contact with a dirty floor, the smallest piece of dirt going up through the hose will turn the light to red. Once all the dirt particles have been passed through, it turns back to green.

How do i clean the two little top parts above the bottom empty dirt cup


hi there,

inside the dirt chamber you should be able to twist and remove both of the silver what look like arrowheads and you should be able to get up inside the top with a water hose to clean out the upper area there. Allow for the unit to dry before you put it back together.

Good luck.

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet


This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.
You don't mention whether it's a canister or upright, but check all hoses and tube.
It can also be due to a full bag or clogged filter. Another cause could be a fault in the switch or wiring that turns on the power nozzle (only if it has a separate motor) but not the vacuum.
The fan blades could be broken or worn, which would allow the vacuum to run, but with no airflow/suction.
Or most costly, the motor is worn out and no longer working.

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

I have a dirt devil featherlite bagless vacuum; model #088600. It has suction through the hose but not through the floor mode. I think there is a blockage in the hose area but cannot seem to take it apart...


there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right back by the wheel.that will take the cover off.if you need to get into the bottom there is a screw on the bottom plate in the area where it looks like the belt travels.is the brush roller turning if not then your belt is probably broke.before you replace the belt clean off the motor shaft and get the old rubber off it otherwise the new belt won't last long.please leave feedback .be sure to clean your filter inside the dirt cup

Low suction when using attachments


Have you cleaned the foam filter? located above the dirt tank after you remove it. the manual can be downloaded from the web site at www.hoover.com ; sounds like an obstruction in the hose or elbow on the back of the unit. the hose can be cleared with a broom hadle when you take the hose completely off the vac.

Won't pick up


try removing the 4 screws on the bottom of the vacuum and remove the gray hose from the flexible clear hose on the back of the vacuum near the bottom then take a rag and push it through the hose to the outlet on the bottom it is a straight shot it should clean it out. I did this to solve my problem with no suction on the vacuum and it worked. You would be amazed how much hair and dirt are in there. Then just put everything back together and it should work just fine assuming you cleaned the air tube behind the canister too.

I just discovered that if you remove the dust cup, lay the vaccum back, reach up inside above the dust cup area, there is a yellow piece that can be removed (twist it and it comes out.) I found that there were GOBS of lint and pet hair stuck inside there. We removed all of that and the vacuum works great again!

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.
