Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough ( not loads) of suction til it reaches the cleaning head. the head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all. It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off. is it fixable or is it dead? Thanks

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.

After cleaning my filters, the filter in the ball keeps snaping out when I turn on my vacuum


Hi Betsy, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC25's HEPA post filter doesn't seem to be staying in place. Once it's removed, it's important to replace it firmly, pushing it into place until you hear a click from the red locking catch:


If you're confident you've replaced the HEPA post filter securely, but it seems to be coming loose when you switch the vacuum on, please get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

No solution but we seem to have the same problem it is as if the valve isn't working. Please don't tell me to check for blockages.

No suction no blockages was working fine


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC18. If your machine isn't picking up as well as it should be, there may be a blockage in the machine. If you haven't been able to locate one in the cleaner head or internal hose, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly for further assistance.

You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 0800 298 0298 (UK). Please have the machine to hand when you call so one of our advisors can run through some checks over the phone with you.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

My vacuum lost it's suction power. I've looked to see if it's clogged and the container is clean. What's going on?


That type of vac is notorious for stopping up where the 90 degree turn is. You may need to access it from the vac head by removing the beater bar or take it apart where ever you can access the turns and hoses.

No suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Loss of suction


There should be a sponge like filter in the area of the canister and no this is NOT the HEPA filter. When you find this other filter you will want to bang it off outside and then put it back in and you should be all set.

I have a dyson dc 17 what is the best way to thourghly cleaning , so I can get better suction , also do you have a instruction manul to. I seem to have misplaced mine thanks


The first step towards improving the suction is to clean the circular HEPA filter. The filter also houses a circular sponge which should be rinsed and dried before putting it back. Check the HEPA filter to see if it needs replacement -- will look muddy! Another quick check is to remove the HEPA filter, run the vacuum cleaner momentarily in upright position to check if suction is restored at the hose end.

After doing this if suction is still poor or non existent, you should detach the transparent canister - a bit tricky since the release rod for the flap has to be aligned when you want to reassemble the unit.
Once the canister is removed, you should check and clean the center tube/shaft for any clogged dust (use a wire coat hanger if needed to pry out the dust). This tube gets clogged if the vacuum cleaner was used to pick up damp/wet spills etc.
