Hi there,
the most common problem that causes this to happen is that you have a blockage in the hose. Unclip the hose from the machine and remove the handle. You will likely be able to see the blockage. You should be able to drop a coin in one end of the hose and have it fall straight through. Be carfull getting the blockage out that you dont pierce the side of the hose (which can happen if you are overly zealous with an poking type tool). If all goes bad and you need to get a new hose you can find one on VacuumSpot or Nelsonvacuums.
Hope this helps you :)

There must be something caught in the hose upstream of where it is collapsing. Check the hose to be sure it is clear all the way thru. Also check the attatchment that you have the hose connected to to make sure it is not blocked either!

The cleaner sucks very poorly. The motor sounds fine, it blows well and there is no obstruction.


If it blows, then it should suck equally unless there is leakage on the intake (suck) side meaning something inside disconnected or cracked, letting air in from other directions. I do not know the vacuum you speak of; upright (which has a short hose often clogged by itself) or canister which might also have a leaky seal at the bag door.

Kenmore w PowerMate just blowing...NOT sucking


Have you made sure the hose is completely clear of any and all obstructions? the power mate also? I have to make the assumption that you're checking the air coming from the rear exhaust port to know that it's still blowing. Take the hose out of the machine and check the suction at the machine itself. If it's good there and not at the end of the hose, that's your problem.

Ridgid shop vac is not sucking


Check the intake hose for a blockage. Attach the hose to the exhaust outlet and turn the vacuum on. If no extracted air is blowing out of it the hose is totally clogged up

My Kenmore Progessive vacuum wand does not have any suction. How can I repair it?


Detach the wand from the hose and see if you have suction from the hose itself. It is more often the blockage is in the corrugations of the hose than in the wand, but also check the elbows of any tools attached to the wand and look thru the wand itself..
Anything caught in the hose should be sucked backward with another vac.
Try opening the dust container, remove the bag if there is one and drop a coin through the hose to locate blockage. The coin will come to rest against the blockage if there is any or drop thru..
If you shake the hose you will locate the blockage by feeling the vibration of the coin against the wall of the hose.This will pinpoint your problem area.
Caution rough use with a wire coat hanger could damage the hose and broomsticks get stuck. Use another vac if the hose is blocked.

Kenmoore Intellivac w direct drive suddenly started making internal sound like something was stuck. Hose is clear, and sound is made when hose is detached from main unit. Vacuum sounds find at lower...


Shut off the vac and open container and remove the bag. Try dropping a coin into the hose, then raise up to see if it falls thru to the bag area. If it does check the throat of the vac where the dirt is sucked upward to dump into the bag itself.

Every time I turn vac on with hose attached the canister sucks in on itself. the hose is not plugged


Try it with no attachment or nozzle on the end. If it sucks the hose in on itself then, you'll be wanting to check that hose one more time. Pass something with a larger diameter through it. I'd try 3/4" PVC pipe or something like that. Another alternative is to place the hose on the exhaust of the canister and try to blow it out. Yet a third possibility is to reverse the hose on the suction side and **** through the hose backwards.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a egomaxx 1800 vacuum cleaner which is not 'sucking' up at all well. There is no obvious blockage.


Sometimes the blockage is within the hose itself and not easy to spot. The only thing that can keep a vacuum from sucking is somekind of blockage. It is rare that a motor have lost power because of a short thats why it is not sucking, and it would be very obvious because you would smell something burning.

Where does other end of hose go


You're quite right . . . the manual doesn't show where the other end of the hose goes, which frustrated me as well. I finally found another pic of the cleaner (I think it may have been the one on the box) which revealed the answer. If you're facing the rear of the machine, there is a plastic "hose clip" on the right side of the machine (it looks like the letter "c"), and the "loose end" of the hose is snapped into place in that holder - it doesn't actually connect into an aperture (that end of the hose is just to place the little furniture brush on, if you use it). Once in place, the hose will actually kind of overlap itself and be held firmly in place against the side of the machine. Hope that helps - I too am not a fan of manuals that leave obvious questions unanswered.

Reverse operation


You probably have a clog in either the dirt inlet down by the brush roll, or the hose itself is clogged.
