Question about Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum
My debris is not spinning in the cup and there is no suction, and the hoses are getting clogged
If the 2 stage filters inside the bin chamber have not been washed then they will need to be - they sound like they are clogged or somewhere there is dirt which is blocking up the system. Also check the side part duster to ensure that the airways are not clogged with dirt.
When you turn the machine on, have a look to see if the moving brush is actually spinning. Then switch off and remove the base plate to see if anything is clogged in the main dirt channel which is usually located on the left or right hand side - where the dirt goes in from the floor.
This model is based on an Electrolux model in the UK which can be notorious for clogging dust. Check the hoses at the bottom where they come from the main dust bin and the air ways to check no dust is stuck.
