Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

My vaccuum cleaner is an EVERSTAR 1200. I turned it on - everything appears OK until I realize that it is not suctionning. I cleaned out the canister - made sure the vacuum was not obstructed. Still no suction. What could it be?

First clean the filter on top of the canister, do not wet it, blow it and get all the accumulated dust out. Then check the hoses for obstruction. There should be an emergency valve on the rear part, if it is open, you better ck the hoses.

How to Fix Vacuum That Lost Suction
If there's ample suction but the machine won't pick up material, check the hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the vacuum cleaner and inspect it for any cracks or holes. If any are found, use duct tape to repair them - it might not look great, but it does the job! Where there's a blockage in the vacuum cleaner, clean it out by pushing a long, thin object like a broom handle through the entire length of thre hose. You can then reconnect the hose and try the vacuum again. It's worth checking the hoses a few times every year for cracks or splits.
If everything else appears to be fine but the vacuum still won't pick up, take a look at the brushes. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and clean hair and other material from the brushes, especially at the sides.

I have a Dyson dc21 ... it has low suction... never happened before approx 4 years old


try completely cleaning it out and clean the filter or get a new one. sometimes when my vaccuum has low suction theres dirt clogged in the hose or the vaccuum itself. try cleaning it out and if that doesnt work try and see if the settings are messed with (if there are different settings of course)

HIGH PITCHED SOUNDS WHEN VACCUUM IS ON


Remove all filters and turn on the vacuum cleaner and check the hose for suction.If it has good suction turn it off and remove the belt.Turn it back on and if the noise is still there you have a motor bearing squealing.It's probably time to replace the vacuum cleaner if you have a motor problem.www.sewvac.com .Most of these box store models are designed for replacement if a major component fails.

I have a Dyson Animal vaccuum sweeper that's about 2 1/2 years old. It has quit sucking. Kathy


do you have suction at the attachments? make sure the canister and dirt separater is cleaned and also check both of the filters. replace if necessary. Could also be that your belts are stretched and slipping on the brushroll thus not getting any aggitation, the appearance of no suction

Hose is not getting any suction


when vacuums shut off randomly it usually means they are overheating. this can be caused by a clog somewhere in the line of suction, or, perhaps due to a very dirty filter - either way, the motor is working hard and getting too hot.

try removing all the various tubes and parts along the suction route and checking for clogs (a flashlight might help too). also, have you rinsed out your two pre-filters lately as recommended in the Dyson manual? it might help.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.

We have a Everstar Turbo Vac. 180 and so far its been wonderful.. All of a sudden it became really loud and spitted out the debree. took it to a vac. repair shop and he wouldnt even look at it! Any...


I found my Everstar near a neighbor's trash. I was going to look for another vacuum cleaner for my third level so I wouldn't have to drag my heavy cleaner up and down the stairs. I was totally and pleasantly surprised at this vaccuum cleaner. It had better suction than my dyson. Granted it is kind of a pain to pull out the dirt from the plastic canister but I got used to it. Then one day it just stopped. I know that when the Dyson stops it means something is stuck or clogged and you have to wait for the motor to cool down for it to start again. Same thing happened to the Everstar. It started again. I took the top part where the filter was and found the filter to be incredibly filthy. I washed it, dryed it and put it back and that was the cause of the problem.
