Question about Vacuums
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 .
