    And if its not clogged?

  • rug_rookie Dec 19, 2008

    My Sharp EC-TU5907 lost it's suction.  It doesn't pick anything up, the powerhead just moves it around.  Air is going through, it doesn't seem to be clogged.  What's going on and how do you fix that?  Thank you.

    I have a Royal 7050; no suction through hoses, but inside motor is creating suction.

    I've come to the conclusion that your product is a poor product. Two hundred plus dollars down the drain...never again Bissell!

Generic problem for all Vacuums
No vacuum suction
No vacuum suction

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I am not sure what type of vacuum you have but it sounds to me that if you have a vacuum with a hose (called a powerteam, or canister with a powerhead) the vacuum hose could be clogged , the filter could be dirty, or the bag is too full – run a marble or steel ball thru the hose to see if there is any blockage, by doing that you can tell where the clog is, if there is use the wire coat hanger – straighten it out and bend the end of the hanger upwards to create a little hook and by doing that you can remove the clog if the ball does not go thru the hose all the way, please be careful if you have a vinyl hose, you could poke a hole in the hose and then you would need a hose sleeve over that spot to stop it from leaking, if it is an upright the same rules would apply to the hose, bag and filter or dirt cup filter .

Suction when vacuuming


Some vacuums have a valve or collar near the handle that you can twist to adjust the amount of suction on the vacuum. If you open it a little it will stop sucking up your throw rugs. IF the problem is not enough vacuum then the HEPA filter may be clogged. It's usually a rectangular filter in a plastic frame. That has to be changed occasionally or the suction of the vacuum will continue to drop off.

Why does the suction stop after 10 minutes of use on my Dyson DC43?


Your vacuum may be overheating and shutting off the suction motor. Clean the cyclone assembly and the filters to see if they could be restricting the airflow.

How do you turn off the hose suction when using the floor vacuum?


Hi! There is no way to reduce the suction in the vacuum. The hose should be assembled on both ends when using the vacuum on floors. You can reduce the suction by raising the 5-level height adjustment. Hope this helps!

Air not getting to hose


I'm not sure which model you have but this is good for Riccar upright vacuums. If the hose has good suction but is not picking up well check the suction tube that is down by the brush roll. The suction tube starts by the brush roll and goes to the back of the vacuum where you put the suction hose into. If it has a clog or restriction the vacuum will not pick up properly.

What do to if keeps spitting things out even if new bag is in?


It sounds like the roller brush is going, but the vacuum isn't working, i.e., no suction.
If you have a canister vacuum, disconnect wands from hose and place hand at end of hose. If there is suction, it's fine. If not, disconnect hose from vacuum, turn on vacuum, and hold hand to intake. If there's suction here, then the hose must be clogged; or holey hose can result in greatly reduced suction.
If it's an upright, the hose could be clogged. Or the fan broken, which would also result in no suction. It would help to know what model you have.

No suction for Kenmore upright vacuum


You have not stated which model vacuum you have. Bipass vacuum have a bipass compartment which is under drive unit. Make sure there are no cracks around housing as this is where you vacuume is created. In order to have vacuum you must have airflow, in assences suction. No air flow, no suction. If the airflow is deverted somehow suction will stop. Your filter, your bag are all sources of air flow. Clog either and you lose suction. Start with loss of air, being cracks in housing,bag or filter
