How to Fix Vacuum That Lost Suction
If there's ample suction but the machine won't pick up material, check the hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the vacuum cleaner and inspect it for any cracks or holes. If any are found, use duct tape to repair them - it might not look great, but it does the job! Where there's a blockage in the vacuum cleaner, clean it out by pushing a long, thin object like a broom handle through the entire length of thre hose. You can then reconnect the hose and try the vacuum again. It's worth checking the hoses a few times every year for cracks or splits.
If everything else appears to be fine but the vacuum still won't pick up, take a look at the brushes. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and clean hair and other material from the brushes, especially at the sides.

The suction on my bissle 93Z6 isn't working. I can turn the vacuum cleaner on but only if the brush is engaged? Any helpful suggestions to troubleshooting the problem?


I am not sure I understand your question. If the problem is that the vacuum won't run without the carpet head, that is beyond my expertise. If the vacuum is on and there is no suction, there are only three possibilities: 1. There is a plug somewhere between the pick up point and the fan. 2. There is a hole somewhere between the pick up point and the fan (an air leak reduces the vacuum) or 3. The motor is running but the fan is not turning or has been damaged badly.

My son's Bissel lost suction when used to clean carpet, but was fine when doing hard floors. The plug was in the line between the brush and the point where the hose could be removed and connected to a wand to do hard floors. It is difficult to see a plug in this section of the line (it is hidden inside the head). I was able to use a stiff wire (with the vacuum off) to dislodge the plug. (I inserted the wire, poked and prodded the plug., turned the vacuum on and checked to see if it would suck out the plug and repeated until the plug finally cleared.)

My daughter's Bissel lost suction when something (I have no idea what!) abraded the line (short section of ribbed hose) close to the brush so that there was a major air leak. Being cheap, I disassembled it enough that I could wrap that section with electrician's vinyl tape to seal the leak.

I haven't had a vacuum where the fan became disconnected from the motor, but I have had fan destroyed. I had a leaf blower that could also be used as a vacuum. In vacuum mode everything that was sucked up passed through the fan. Unfortunately, it was a strong vacuum and would pick up small rocks. When a fan has lost most of its blades sucking rocks, it stops sucking anything! Most vacuum cleaners are designed so that debris can't get sucked into the fan, so this is the last thing to check. It requires significant disassembly to be able to see the fan and can be dangerous to turn on to observe its operation once exposed.

Hi I have a dirt devil vision. Hose works, but does not vacuuming the floor. Belts are not broken. Larger belt is moving, smaller belt that moves the brushes does not.


hi krueger, sorry for the problems but hers an idea how about turning on the vacuum and put your hand under the part where it sucks uo the dirt off the floor and i guessing you would have a little suction, since the brushes are not moving its going to not pick up as well as it should my guess is that the belts need to be replaced even if one is moving, i would change both belt to be sure and also are you smelling a burning smell if so then that would prove fact to needing new belts, hope this helps, Jamie

Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

The suction in the hose of my 2 year old Dyson Animal vacuum is compromised. I may have sucked up a small cat toy or something. Regular vac still is fine. The hose "sucks closed" after a few seconds near...


Hi there, it sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To test this, remove the wand handle from the hose and test the suction at the top of the hose. If its strong here, then you will need to remove the blockage from the wand handle. If the suction is still poor, you will need to remove the hose by pressing in the catch on the hose cuff near the base of the machine and removing any blockages.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

The roller for my dyson does not turn and it does not pick up anything. Howevever, the hose suction is fine and I have checked all the places for dust blockages.


That means that the belt is stretched, worn or broken. You need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts and view the manual with instructions here:

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.

Strong sucking in hose


Sounds like either the stiffeners within the hose have failed, or there is a blockage as you mentioned.

See if the hose feels weak at the point where it collapses. If not, look for a blockage in the vacuum head, or remove the hose at the vacuum head end and look for a restriction in the hose or the vacuum head port.
