New carpet clogs the vacuum hose.
How to unplug?


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Also, we you like to know the brand name and model # of the vacuum. Some of the ways are to use a round metal ball or marble to see where the clog is in the hose and then you can use such things as the end of a broom handle, or you can use a wire coat hanger and bend the end to make a little hook and then try to grab the clog and say fish it out – or if you have another canister or shop vac you can tune on both canisters and try to pull the clog apart and sometimes that works as well – just be careful so that you do not puncture the electric hose because they are expensive in the area of $100.00 or more in some cases. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man

The vacume was plugged. Believe I unplugged it, but now it just blows air OUT, does not **** in. Everything is emptied and cleaned. Don't know what to do next. Just had new carpet installed today, and...


Even tho its empty and clean, if the hosing is blocked up then it will not **** up anything.
The hosing down below the attachment hose may still be blocked up and that will have to be cleared for it to suction again.

remove the attachment hose look down the hose at the back. you can also flip over the machine and look for the attachment hose to come to the brush roller. I assume it is blocked up there and not picking up properly.

Good luck.

New carpet has clogged the vacume hose. How do I clear it out


The easiest way I've found is to disconnect the hose at both ends, and GENTLY push a broom handle through it while removing the stuff from the other end. Unhooking it allows you to lay the hose straight. Adjust your head height to where you just hear it hitting the carpet, then raise it one notch. The brush is designed to (and this is a secret the salesmen won't tell you) just touch the top of the carpeting to get it moving so the dirt becomes loose, the suction does the rest. Too low and it just forces the carpet to lay over and traps most of the dirt.

While vacuuming, the unit will stop/shut down. A short time later the unit will operate again but not for much longer. All filters are clean/new.


Check your hose for a clog. It's likely there is a plug somehwere. Run it (not while vacuming the carpet) with all three filters removed. See if you get good suction. If not then look around for a plug of dirt and hair somewhere.

Vacum will not pick up


Due to the way carpets are made - new carpets sometimes have a lot of loose fiber. This is NORMAL and it may take 3-5 times to vacuum the carpet till it goes back to normal. Spitting out fuzz balls is a bit weird. Make sure you have the belt installed right - see video on www.goodvac.com. but the fact that belts keep breaking I am assuming that you have them installed right. Give it a few more belts and if the problem presists - let me know.

We have the Eureka EZ Kleen upright. We have suction through the hoses but not the main vacuum. The brush turns fine but the vacume does not **** anything up.


THE HOSE BETWEEN THE DETACHABLE WAND AND THE BRUSH ROLLER AREA MUST BE CLOGGED WITH CARPET FIBERS. CLEAN IT OUT AND IT SHOULD WORK.

Clogged vacuum hose, new carpet, have been through two vacuums already.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. When vacuuming it is a good idea to give your vacuum a burst of air once in a while to clear the hose and push the dust and dirt into the bag, simply just lift up on the powerhead or vacuum hose and give it a burst of air every 5 or 10 minutes. Also, we you like to know the brand name and model # of the vacuum. Some of the ways are to use a round metal ball or marble to see where the clog is in the hose and then you can use such things as the end of a broom handle, or you can use a wire coat hanger and bend the end to make a little hook and then try to grab the clog and say fish it out – or if you have another canister or shop vac you can tune on both canisters and try to pull the clog apart and sometimes that works as well – just be careful so that you do not puncture the electric hose because they are expensive in the area of $100.00 or more in some cases.
