Hoover cyclean brush stopped revolving


The belt may be broken or worn If your cleaner is not picking up fluff and hair from the carpet or has become heavy to push it is possible that the belt has snapped. This belt makes the sweeping brushes spin round underneath the cleaner and brush dirt into the path of the air suction. The brushes also give that 'groomed' look to your carpet by gently brushing the carpet fibre. If you pick up something sharp or debris gets jammed in the brushes then the belt may snap. Also over time your belt will stretch, so it's a good idea to change your belt once per year to ensure the cleaner picks up dirt effectively.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

Doesn't pick up


This could be a few reasons. Check and make sure your bag is not full of dirt, a full bag will make your vacuum's suction worse. Next check for clogs of dirt and debris. Check the nozzle and brushroll too. If you find no clogs and the brushroll and belt look good, it may be your vacuum fan is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Not picking up dirt - already changed the vacuum bag


Check the belt. It may be slipping or broken. You can turn the vacuum over and turn it on briefly to make sure the brushes rotate.

If this is not the case, their may be a vacuum leak or something obstructing airflow, which is necessary to create a vacuum to pick up the dirt.

Good luck!

Vacuum doesn't pick-up dirt


It's probably not picking up because the belt is worn and stretched. With a new belt it will pick up a lot better. Here is the belts you need:

Vacuum cleaner not picking up and sometimes spits ouit dirt


Check to see if bag (or if not bag then chamber is full).

Check to see if filter is clean.

If your vacuum has a bag, check to see that it is properly mounted.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific but it would help if you would specify what type of vacuum you have, whether you are using the hose or just the floor part, and where it is spitting the dirt from.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know the answer to the above questions and we'll go from there. Good luck!
