Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

It seems to be blowing the dirt away instead of sucking it in?


Sounds like it has blockage somewhere in it causing low suction, therefore brush 'blows' dirt away instead.

Rumba is blowing not sucking


There is a small slit that gets full of dust bunnies inside the dust bin . Open the "lips" on the blue soft rubber sweeper and clean the slit with a small screwdriver or toothpick and that will take care of dirt blowing out.

Hi...everytime I turn on my vacuum it blows out a bunch of dirt/dust...the belt seems to be intact...what can the problem be? Is it something i can fix myself possibly?


This is most likely a clogged inlet, clogged hose, or a clogged filter. Just need to inspect it thoroughly and give it a good cleaning.

More info, let me know.

Fro what you say, the unit is blowing instead of sucking, There must be a pipe that is connected to the wrong outlet. Feel where there is suction instead of pressure, that is where your vacuum pipe must be connected.

My kenmore quick clean vacuum cleaner has no suction. Just seems to blow the dirt out and away from the cleaner. The canister is empty and the filter is clean, so what's going on?


Hi,
The hose or hoses are plugged...take all the hoses apart and stretch them out... run a stiff wire through them or something like a broom handle...you will find that they are full of dust and dirt inside...
