Hi, if the recovery tank lid has a foam filter make sure that it has at least a 1/4 inch gap to the top. Also did the lid lock down al around the tank? One other thing is turn it over, and you see a red frame near where the brush block is, that is a filter, pull it out far enough to clean it off.

Take care

THE TOP OF THE HANDLE WHERE THE CAP IS, IS where the SUCTION is, NOT THE BASE.


Is this a Dyson by any chance? The suction changes to the base when you lower the handle. There is also a knob on the base that alters carpet or hardwood floor. The handle suction is for when you use the hose, with the handle in the upright position.

Went to use my proheat cleaner and ther is no suction?


Sometimes the base housing on this machine gets its' screw mountings broken. Then the dirt bucket will not set on the base properly to make suction. The base will have to be replaced and that means taking all of the roller and motor parts out and putting them into the new base.

Loss of suction!


you can tell if the vacuum is not run properly by the sound and no suction. check all the hoses and line, more likely is clog up and it the only reason why any vacuum cleaner seem to run louder and run hot due to the line is clog. check the hose line at the bottom of the base where the suction located with the pickup brush; it tend to get clog at the base.

No suction.


Poor suction can be caused by obstructions, poor air flow or a compomise in the air flow (hole in the hose). Since you have started with that I would next look at all filters and clean them. First check for suction at the motor, then at accessory hose and then the base. this will lead you to a suction issue. If your baelt has not been replaced in the last 6-12 mo I would change that too. check to make sure your carpet setting is coorect for the carpet being cleaned.

Dyson dc07 yellow/blue no suction at base


Sounds like you've **** up something which is obstructing the suction from the brush bar. There's a little section of curved grey pipe near the base which carries the dirt from the head up the vertical pipe at the back. This section can be removed, check there is nothing jammed in there, paper etc.

The hoover shampooer will not extract the water from carpet, is it because the carpet is so low ?? the carpet is cleaning fine there is VERY poor underlay and then wood under that, worried about the wood...


do you have suction at the front of the base,if you don't then look at the plastic cover on the base,you should be able to see through the plastic.the suction slot on the bottom front of the base is very narrow.i don't know if you have pets but most of the time the suction chanel gets clogged with hair and dirt.the chanel is right up the middle on top of the base.look in there and see if you don't see a lot of hair and dirt stuck up inside.there are some screws on the bottom that you need to take out to remover the cover.then the cover comes apart in two pieces to allow you to get to the suction chanel.please leave some feedback.i hope i was some help to you

Suction through hose but not base


mine did the same when new, i checked all as above then i noticed that i could twist the round peice that will unplug) (right behind the carpet-bare floor knob) and then i got suction at the base to be able to vacuum the floors, then i notice that there was a peice of plastic broken off that actually pushed a black latch down when either pushing the handle all the way up or down this lets the round piece i'm talking about swap over from base suction to handle suction! hope this helps and everyone can understand what i'm talking about! you have to look close to see where the 2" by 2" piece of plastic is missing!

FLexible hose has no suction


It is possible that the hose at the base has deformed under suction and is blocking the airflow. I have found this to be the case on mine. Air is being drawn in from a bypass valve near the base and to the left of the hose so it makes a suction noise but does not have any pull at the nozzle.
