there is no switch - you must place the plastic on the unit and remove the round piece from the suction area. You need a copy of the instructions for sure. It is complicated to switch from one to the other and takes a long time. hardly worth bothering with for me

I have a Eureka upright bag less model 5857 az. The hose has suction but not for the carpet. Is there a switch that needs to be turned to floor suction? I do not have a manuel.

I'm just guessing here, but have you laid the vacuum down with the underside of its head showing? There is a channel that runs from the brush section to the hose when it's connected correctly to the head. Look for item(s) that may be jammed into that channel. Ensure that the hose is properly attached to the head. If you feel no suction on that underside channel, you have something jammed in it.

How do i change from vacuum to blower?

In order to change from suction to blowing, insert the hose into the
exhaust port of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner should have two ports, one which is for suction,
the other is an exhaust port. The exhaust port can be used for blowing
when the hose is inserted into it.
After inserting the hose into the exhaust port just turn on the switch.

I have cleaned out the vac and changed the filter but I can hardly **** up leave on the garage floo.

Try this:
Detach hose, turn on vacuum, hold hand in front of intake to check airflow/suction. If it seems good, you either have a clog in the hose, are bad leakage.
If it's a clog, try placing end of hose in the exhaust port, turn on machine, and blow clog free. You may need to place other end into intake. This should clear it.
If hose is cracked, punctured, or smashed/collapsed, replacement will be necessary.
If there's not much suction at the intake, it may be time to replace your vacuum, or at least the motor.

Have you checked your filters to make sure they are not dirty? Is the Insulated suction line starting to get
covered in ice? Is the indoore coil Iced up?

If yes, turn furnace off, try and change the filters,leave
unit off for awhile while it unthaws and try it a few hours later.

My steam vac is not cleaning the only place their is suction is through the uphostery hose, can't find my book or a switch to change from upholstery to the fllor suction. Any ideas?

You need to remove the suction hose from the front nozzle in order. There is no switch to change suction control. when the hose is removed, make sure the dorr cover is closed.

Suction stopped working immediately

There is a hose on the unit. Disconnect it at both ends. Stretch it out. Look down it. If you can't see down it, rod it out.

Ac fuse blowing, high suction pressure

Were the fuses blowing before you started charging the unit?
It sounds like you are overcharging it.
