It sounds as if you need a new belt or there is blockage somewhere. Let me know if what you find.

Upon turning on vaccum it starts ok, but a second later it spits out some dust dirt out and does not vaccum. We hear like a poof suction when this happens. Cleaned all the tubes around it, but thinking...


The poof suction sound you hear is most likely the suction release valve opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere. If you don't feel qualified it is usually a better idea to take it to a qualified repair facility.

Dyson Vaccum suction not strong enough


Look for an obstruction in the air passages at the bottom and where the air enters the canister. Make sure the HEPA filter is not plugged (take it out for a test). Hope this helps!

Extreme vaccum has no suction.


Make sure you put the dirt cone back in the bucket to create the tight seal. You will have no suction without the dirt cone.

Not sucking makeing a clogged noise


Bagless vacuums don't usually get clogged as easily as standard bag styles do. However, if you can disconnect the top half from the brush head section you should see a "neck" where the two meet, check there for a clog. Also check your filters, this is where loss of suction happens most. Dirty filters = Low Suction. I hope this helps

When the vaccum is running the motor gets hot & smells & is very noisy.


Sounds like yu may have a clog, either in the inlet by the brush roll, or the hose. If the hose comes loose, see if there is suction there. If no suction then it is clogged. If suction, then the inlet maybe clogged.

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.

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
