Dyson DC14 hose won't extend and floor unit lost suction


Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.

My Dyson 41 has just started only sucking through the tube


We've had our DC41 for 4 months now and suddenly noticed no suction at the base as well. Base motor works fine.Thought I'd take one last look before sending in for repair. At the base of the attachment hose near the motor is a small red tab. I depressed it and pulled the entire hose off the motor. Sure enough inside was a eyeliner pencil our daughter had unknowingly vacuumed up. I couldn't see it just peering the length of the hose. Even with a flashlight. You don't see mention of the small red tab but it allows you to see close up rather than peering down the hose if something is lodged near the motor. Apparently this pencil prevented the internal hardware to switch from wand to base suction when the handle is reclined in floor vacuum mode. These vacuums have strong suction and they will pull up the oddest things! Hope this helps!!

I have a Eurkeka Boss vacuum and having problems with suction with the hose attachment. Have checked the normal things. ???? Any suggestions?


Since you've checked all the normal things, I presume you mean making sure the hose is unblocked. Now, have you checked the hose for the suction vent/adjustor? There is usually a vent with a movable cover that moves away from the vent and back over the vent. If the vent is open, the suction decreases. If the vent is covered, the suction improves. Many times I accidentally move the cover so that the vent is open and then I wonder what is wrong with the vacuum!
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion! Thanks.

If there no blockages in the hoses, then the next thing to check would be any filters in the vacuum. When these get clogged, you will experience this problem.

No hose suction


Clean your round filter and make sure there is nothing in the elbow tube in the bottom/back of the vacuum.

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

Suction only works using the hand held mode, there is no suction when try to use on carpet mode,


There must be a clog in either the hose, dirt inland by the brush roll, or bad filters. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then look lower all the way to the brush roll.
