I would suspect a blockage in the pipe , check if the brush on the base unit turns if not you may have a broken belt. If brush turns you have probably got blocked pipe or base unit I have sometimes pushed stiff wire to clear pipe of blockage.

My Miele vacuum's hose has stopped sucking-help!!


Sounds like you might have something caught in it. If you have another vacuum with a hose, use that machine to suck out the clog in your Miele hose.

Suck hoover


If the wire is underneath the unit it won\'t suck up the water. I did this once. Make sure it is flush with the floor.

Its a reverse vacum, not sucking up anything just blowing it everywhere. The belt is fine and the filters are clean. Please help.


Hi r_holdsworth,

You got a deal! 2in1, blows and vacuums....

Actually, when vacuums blow instead of sucking, there is a clog somewhere. Usually, it's something that has been vacuumed up.

If you can't find the clog, please reply back with your model number and I'll find an exploded view of your machine for you to look at.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

My shop vac is not sucking anything only blowing air out of the open hole where the hose should go if I wanted to blow something. I want it to vacuum not blow out. The filter sleeve and dry cloth are...


I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

My dyson dc25 pipe has lost suction..is something stuck in the pipe?


We had the exact same issue. Turns out my wife had inadvertantly sucked up a magnet that was the same size ans the tube. Hold the tube up to a light source. If you cannot see any light, there is something stuck in it. To dislodge the item, stretch out a wire hanger and run it through the tube. It should lislodge the item. Dyson's are great but are very tempermental!
