SOURCE: My dyson 07 has suddenly stopped suctioning.

Could also be the clutch. I just had the same problem. Before buying a new clutch assembly, I took the out the clutch just to make sure I could do it (the link previously mentioned is great: http://www.dysonmedic.com/DC07%20Folder/DC07%20Clutch%20replacement.html). In the process, I also opened the clutch at the wide end (two screws and a little retaining clip on the side - can watch a video as to how to disassemble the clutch here: http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc04-dc07-and-dc14-belt-pack-for-clutch-system-90251401-2-pack-p-2196.html?currency=USD). In the "lid" you will see a little black plate (looks like the same material that a car breakpad is made out of). If the clutch is the problem this plate will look a little worn down. It can be removed and flipped over. You'll get a few more years out of it. Of course, when the second side wears out, you'll have to get a new clutch (but by then maybe the the entire vac will need replacing anyway). I just saved myself $40. Enjoy.

Very low suction when I use the hose, but the carpet brush roller attachment works fine. Any ideas?


This style of vacuum has great airflow but does not have great suction, especially at the end of the hose but it still should have enough to pick up most soils. It may have a restriction in the suction tube or emptor. The disposable bag may be full or clogged, the outer bag could also be clogged.

When the brush is on it won't **** properly


Look for blockage carefully as the unit does not know which you have attached.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

My attachments tool has no suction. I made sure I have selected tools and I cleaned the lint filter. There is definitely suction in the machine, but it does not come through the attachments hose.


Check the attachment hose for any hindrances like clogged with dirt or object. Also a big hole cracks in hoses will cause suction to divert it outside. Clean the machine to make sure it will provide suction powerfully. Regularly clean it and you will assure it's will perform better.
Thanks for asking.

My Lindhaus Diamante 300 has great suction but clogs


Sounds like you have some form of an obstruction in the hose ( i once found a tooth pick sideways in mine) most models allow for the hose to be disconnected from the vaccum itself, also make sure theres not a setting for attachments also, some models need the suction redirected.

Have a hoover model F5914-900 it wont spray anything out the hose attachment. The line isn't clogged any ideas?


Yes, one thing to try: With the hose attached, place your hand over the suction opening at the pick-up end of the hose. Then pull the trigger. The pump is suction driven, and if there is air in the water line in the hose, that is known to allow th hose to prime in about 10 to 15 seconds.

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.

Kenmore progressive/direct drive-- roller stopped turning


We have the same vacuum & had the same problem. As the vacuum ages & the hose is periodically removed from the nozzle to use with the attachments, the white switch, adjacent to the nozzle connection, wears. If the hose is not fully reinserted or if the attachment notches are inadvertently aligned with the white stitch, the agitator may not work reliably. Assuring the hose is fully inserted, with the locking notches away from the switch has eliminated this problem with our vacuum cleaner.

I have little suction when using the hose attachment


Check the hose for a blockage. If you remove the hose, if there is suction at the point where the hose hooks to the back of the vac, then the hose is clogged. If no suction there, check filters, make sure they are clean.
