My vacumn won't pick or suction up and bag is not full. I cleaned out the hose checked and belt running I have no other answer please help. It's an upright lux guardian


The output filter on that unit is HEPA and traps all particles. You need to clean or replace that filter because the airflow cannot leave through it and it wont develop suction.

What is wrong with my vacuum cleaner when it want pick up and it blow the trash back out


Sounds like you might be hitting the reverse button some vacuums have. Otherwise there's stuff getting trapped in the space above the beater bars and when you lift the vacuum while it's running, this trapped trash has an opportunity to get out now that there's no pressure from the floor. You might want to check and make sure there's nothing stuck in your tubing that's preventing things from going into the bag. My wife use to suck up gum wrappers and half sheets of paper and it would clog up the hose. I'd have to use a broom stick of wire coat hanger to unplug this.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

It's clogged somewhere. Disconnect the hoses where you can and check for obstructions. Run a coat hanger down the hose if you need to to clear the obstruction.

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!

No suction


If it is plugged, try using a tape measure, i know it sounds stupid but it will work to unplug your line and will not tear your hose..

No sucking power


Check the hose it is clogged very common in this model. Use a clothes hanger to push trapped debris while on. if its real bad you might have to remove hose to clean out.

Vacuum not picking up


At the top of your wand, do you have a plastic swivel that cover a hole in the wand? This is for when you are cleaning curtains, and if that is open, or cracked you will loose suction there... also check your hose for cracks, or breaks. If it were in the shop I would put a gauge on it... normal suction is about 80-95 inches of water lift at the end of the hose. Once you have check each section of the hose, and wand, check the housing for cracks, a missing gasket (Very Good Reason For Lack Of Suction) As to your Filter, how long have you used that one filter, you can clean them for a while, but once a paper filter gets full of FINE dust you won't get it all out, you will have to replace the filter itself at that point. I hope this was helpful.
