Remove the batteries and using an emory board or fine sandpaper scratch up the metal pieces where the battery ends make contact inside the unit. It could be that the metal pieces have corroded a bit and need to be cleaned to make proper contact with the batteries.

Why is it not sucking up


Hi, it's Jim with Crucial Vacuum!

I'm unsure as to the specific make and model of your vacuum, but general loss of suction can be improved with these maintenance tips. After completing these checks you'll notice a difference in your vacuums performance.

First thing to check is the brush roll and belt. If the brush roll isn't spinning try rotating it manually to help unclog any hidden debris. Your vacuums belt stretches out overtime and lessens in tension. Make sure your vacuums belt is on your brush roll nice and tight. Without these two parts functioning properly your vacuum will have poor, or no suction at all.

Empty your units dust cup, or change out the bag if necessary. When you allow dust and debris to sit in your vacuum it leads to clogs throughout your unit. Avoid this by changing out your dust cup after every use.

Another area to check for clogs, which may be effecting your vacuums suction is the hose. Stretch out your hose fully to see if any debris are stuck. If there are any clogs that are hard to reach use a broom handle to unblock it.

Why I have no suction


Hi, it's Jim with Crucial Vacuum!

If your vacuum is lacking in overall suction there are several places you can check to help your vacuum operate at its peak performance.

First thing to check is the brush roll and belt. If the brush roll isn't spinning try rotating it manually to help unclog any hidden debris. Your vacuums belt stretches out overtime and lessens in tension. Make sure your vacuums belt is on your brush roll nice and tight. Without these two parts functioning properly your vacuum will have poor, or no suction at all.

Empty your units dust cup, or change out the bag if necessary. When you allow dust and debris to sit in your vacuum it leads to clogs throughout your unit. Avoid this by changing out your dust cup after every use.

Loss of suction o=with hose tool


Hose or tool is probably clogged. Is this an upright? Bagged or bagless? Have you changed the bag and filters? Cleaned out the brush and hose that goes from the brush area to the collection bag/cup? The only reason for a vacuum cleaner to lose suction but still work is a clog or dirty filter which blocks the air flow. Follow the air flow from the brushes to the bag/dirt cup. If the machine is bagged, change the bag. I use another vacuum cleaner to do this.While your at it, might as well change the belt.

You must reset the outside unit every time you change a battery. To rest insert a paperclip into the small whole marked "reset". Temperatures should now appear on the inside or remote unit.

My velocity has little suction,it immediatley clogs the filter inder the dirt cup snd goes no further..we just changed both filters


Have you unclogged the from where it enters the vacuum to the end of the hose, sometimes the hose clogs are the way up into the machine which will reduce the suction to almost nothing.

Vacuum hose has little suction.


There is most likely a clog in the hose. If the hose has poor suction the foot probably has poor suction as well seeing that the hose is what gives the foot assy suction.

I am the Sales Coordinator with Electrolux, and personally it sounds to me like your machine could use a service check. Your local Aerus/ Electrolux office should be able to help you out with that no problem. If you are having trouble reaching them feel free to call my office (570)326-1731 and ask for Liz. I hope this is able to help you out.
