    Same problem. I have cleared all openings of dirt and clogs. Even used a shop vac to blow out any debris. Took brush off and cleaned. Cleaned filters too. Put on new bag. VAC still blowing air out of side filter at a high velocity, but no suction. Paid $55 new 3 years ago. Is it worth taking to a service center?

    I was using the vacuum and it was working just fine, I decided to check the bag, and it was full, I removed it and put in a new one. When I turned it back on it began blowing hard out the filter on the side and in not sucking at ALL. I have check for clogs and everything appears clear. Any help would be appreciated.

Check the dirt inlet down by the brush roll for a clog. Also check the hose for a clog. Usually a clog is what causes this type of problem.

I have a sears 12 gallon vac/ blower. It is blowing air, how do I get it to vacuum.


If it is blowing air, then that air must be getting in, to be blown out. That inlet is where the suction occurs. Check all seals and filters.

Red power light blinks even with completely clean canister and filter


Check for a filter where the air blows out of the machine. Could be clogged.

How do you make it blow air out? trying to make air blow out,i have the hose that has controls on it. will work to **** up but when i put it to blow out will not come on.


The Guardian Canister vacuums have a blow port under the filter. So you need to remove the filter (on the Guardian Ultra, you have to open the top of the vacuum) by lifting it up the forward. Then disconnect the hose from the normal suction end of the unit and plug it into the blower port. Now turn on the vacuum. If the hose is clogged, position the other end of the hose at the suction port.

For the Guardian canister, select the high, medium or low force for the motor. Then blow the dust out from under the furniture or use to fill an inflatable. Turn off the vacuum and replace the hose in the usual position and replace the filter when done.

If you are still unable to get the unit to blow out when connected to the exhaust port after attempting to clear the hose, separate the hose, wand and handle. Look down the hose for any object that might be creating a one-way valve. Remove the foreign object.Do the same with the other parts of the unit. Also replace the vacuum bag. If the bag is sufficiently full, the airflow will be reduced through the bag to the exhaust and cause the problem you describe.

The Electrolux Guardian Canister Vacuums are part of the Aerus line. The manuals for the vacuums are available here: http://www.aerusvacuums.com/support/manuals/index.cfm . The Guardian Ultra is in the current model section. The Guardian is listed in the Older Model drop-down menu.

I hope this helps.

(many canister vacuums have a blower mode when you connect the hose to the exhaust (after the bag) instead of the suction side of the unit.)

My central vaccum cleaner has no suction at all outlets even at the canister. The motor is still working and blowing air out the air release tube. What could be the problem


Check the filter in the tank. If this is dirty, the motor will still run, but there will be little to no suction. Rinse thoroughly under warm water, then allow to thoroughly air dry before replacing into vacuum.
I recommend having two filters in order to use one while the other is drying.

Thehose has no suction


remove and clean the filter. you can use a air compressor to blow it out or use a brass wire brush and tap the filter on the table until it looks nice and clean,, this will return the suction to your vacume. also at the same time as you are cleaning the filter, check the hose for any blockage ( especially down by the floor sweeper where the hose kinda bends down into the unit ) -- when a filter is dirty and the suction is not that great, dirt loves to collect and compact in this spot,, use a wire coat hanger to fish out and clean any debris.

Vacuum does not have good suction. We've cleaned


sometimes debris can still be hidden in odd places. if you have access to compressied air you might carefully us it to blow out all the passageways that the air travels from the brush to the dirt holding area. make sure you dont have a filter that you missed when you replaced them. use low pressure air to blow out the system as high pressre air might damage a part of the system.is the motor running at the normal speed? if not you might try to find out why and fix that as well. as always never worksk on a vacuum that is plegged in. good luck.

Hepa filter stopped on Hoover Windtunnel 2 Model #U8361-900


This has a simple solution IF you have a air compressor with a high pressure nozzle. Outside the house, first remove the Dust bin completely and lay the unit down with the dust bin area up. now start blowing the nozzle at the hepa filter, Alot of dust will come out. Now start to rotate the filter while blowing the dust out. The filter will move one way easier, When there is no more dust reinstall the dustbin and check the suction and the rotation of the filter.
