There's probably a clog in the tube in the power nozzle. Detach hose and drop a marble or similar size object down tube. It should roll through and out at the brush. If not, there's a clog and it needs to be removed.

I love the machine because it sucks up the dirt but it also sucks up the rug fibers and is clogging the hose. How to I clean out the hose?


Try this - run a strong string with a small weight attached down through the hose. Tie a small rag or a sponge to the end of the string and pull it back through the hose.

I have a hoover Dust Manager DM6200. actually it is my friend's. She said it wasn't working well, so I took a look. It wasn't picking up, and seemed to be spreading dirt in fact. I emptied...


Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks


Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

Accessory hose not sucking


Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!

roro, There are two possibilites: One is that each hose does something different (suck and exhaust) or both suck. Find the one that sucks. That should be the one that you hook tools to now. If the attachment has an electrical connection, it will be needed to do scrubbing. If the shampoo unit is from a different brand, you'll have to make up something to do that. If you do, be certain that the connection is fully taped up so no liquid can get to it!!

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.

Suction


Opening that door and attaching the hose will let the suction go thru that hose. So if when you removed the hose, if that door isn't closed tight will cause you to have a suction problem It has to seal and have no leaks. The other thing when be a problem with the recovery tank not sealing when you put it back on. Other then that, any air leak will cause a suction problem.
