Suction cannot be lost if the motor is running normally unless the air flow has been interupted. Lift out and clean the filter so air can flow through, replace the bag, unscrew the flexi hose at his "nose", and also remove from the steel pipes. Finally drop a

    continuation............£1 coin through the black flexi hose also through the steel pipes and the floor tool, this will reveal if there is a blockage that you have missed. If none of this works it could be a crack in the casing or damaged filter/casing rubber.

Why is my henry vacuum cleaner not working motor running but no suction ?


Hi I will try to guide you though this problem.
When you switch it on do you get air blown out of the vent on the machine housing.if not there may be a blockage.
if you take the hose off, do you have suction on the main body.
if so pipe is blocked.
if no suction then, do you have a bag in it. If so remove the bag and reassemble and try again.
there should also be a sealing ring with a fabric on it between the motor head and the body, is this very dirty or missing.
if none of the above works then I would assume that the fan is adrift on the motor.
i would advise a qualified person investigates further as risk of electric shock if you dismantle the advice.
please let me know how you get on.

Why has my dyson dc50 have no suction on the pipe


If you did put it together as it should, the only thing I can think of, is something got stuck in the pipe. Check this.
Old vacuums you could put the hose and or pipe to the other end of the vacuum, to blow it out. Now you have to be a little inventive to check a blockage.

Why when I Pull out handle to use edging attachment, suction stops?


Make sure that the vacuum cleaner is in the fully upright position as there is a slide 'gate' thet directs suction to either the vacuum head or to the handle section depending as to which section you wish to use. In the upright position, you shoud be able to hear the vacuum at the handle where the attachments connect. If you still have vacuum at floor level, check the action of this gate. The actuating mechanism may be broken. Cheers Bob

No suction for the hand tools


If your suction is ok for normal cleaning and bad for just the hand tools then you have a blockage in the flexible hose or the "u pipe" at the bottom of the flexible hose. Un-clip the u pipe and check it for blockage. Un-clip the hose from the vacuum and you should be able to look through it when letting it hang straight down.

My henry wont pick up any dirt and how do i change the filter ...


The filter on a Henry does not need changing (unless torn or
damaged). It simply neeeds cleaning, either by vacuuming with
another machines or brushing clean. For maximum suction, air
must be able to flow through it. Next, change the bag. Finally
remove hoses and pipes etc and switch on, the suction that you can feel by putting your hand against his "nose", is the same suction that you should feel when pipes are back on.

If it is not, then you will have a blockage, usually in the flexi hose, but drop a coin through in order to establish where.

My fuller brush household canister vacuum doesn't have as much suction as usual. I've changed the bag and cleaned filter. Any other ideas?


. Test the suction without the pipes to confirm that the motor is sucking strongly, then check that there are no blockages in the pipes and fittings.

EF 1750 has lost suction power. There is a noticable decrease in suction power even at the power unit inlet.


Disconnect the actual pipe where it meets the vac. Then test the intake for suction. If you have poor suction still, check the intake itself from inside the vac body for blockage, then check the gasket on the pail for mis-alignement.

If you have suction at the actual intake, your issue will be in the house piping. Look for any damaged inlet doors which are ajar, also look at any inlets you may have recently removed for painting or renovation work. Each inlet has an o ring seal which must be properly aligned. If not aligned you will hear a hiss at the inlet when the door is closed.

Last check where any exposed pipe or pipe joint could have been jarred loose or damaged, basement , garage, etc. Post back to advise what you find

I lost the manual to my vacuum


Hi.

If no suction from hose check the following.
The (U) shaped inspection port at the back of machine where flexi hose enters has not come off or has a blockage.
Remove flexi hose from rear of machine once off slide it fully up the wand handle hold handle end up to a light & look up the pipe for blockages.

Check side premotor filter.
Does it pick up ok when using to vacuum carpets or is that got bad suction to ?
