Have you tried reversing the hose-- and sucking on the outlet end?-- this might assure that the hose is unplugged--

Or is there ot enough suction at the hose connection, when you remove it, and place your hand over the opening?

WHen did you change filters last on the upright?-- or at least clean the filters?

No suction on my dyson dc27


Most common cause of loss of suction are objects being lodged. You can isolate the area pretty simply. Put your hand to the tube on the detatchable handle. If there is suction there the obstruction is at the base. To clear this turn the vacuum over and lay it down. There is a suction hose that attaches just behind rotating sweeper. Disconect it, and check for debris. Also look in the sweeper compartment for hair, and other clogs. Re-Attach, to see if this remedied the problem.

If the loss of suction is somewhere in the detachable handle. What i have done is disconnect it from the unit... Take a wire hanger or similar and carefully run it through the hose. Be careful not to puncture the hose.

Tip

Vacuum cleaners: Loss of Suction


A common complaint about vacuum cleaners, regardless of the brand, is loss of suction. The motor runs fine, there seems to be plenty of power, and even some suction, but the vacuum just won't pick up even the lightest of items. There are some very simple checks and fixes to this problem most of the time.
The primary causes are: clogged hose, full bag, leaky hose.
Clogged hose: this is probably the most common cause, and will result in a damaged motor if not cleared.
Check: Remove hose from vacuum and wands. Holding one end, drop a marble or small ball into the opening and allow to roll through. If it doesn't come through the end, then the hose is clogged.
Solution: If you have a canister vacuum with an exhaust port, try connecting the hose to this and turning machine on. If the clog isn't too bad, this may clear it. If not, more extreme measures may be needed.
Never attempt to clear a clog with a coat hanger or similar length of wire, as this could easily puncture the house. Do not use water or high air pressure gun to clear hose.
Full bag: Check bag. Change if necessary. If it seems the bag should hold a little more, well, it's not worth replacing a motor, or the vacuum, trying to find out. Bag pores are easily clogged if the machine is used for cleaning construction areas where sheet rock dust is abundant. Ensure you’re using genuine bags for your machine.
Leaky hose: Over time, hoses suffer from normal wear and tear, and often abuse, resulting in cracks and holes, often too small to notice. Hoses need to be replaced at this time, and this generally results in a dramatic increase in "suction". There simply is no fix for a leaky hose.
Solution: Always store the hose properly to avoid kinking, crimping, smashing, etc. Avoid stepping on the hose, or leaving in an area where it may get stepped on , driven over, or smashed. Avoid pulling the vacuum by the hose, or otherwise stretching/stressing the hose.

No suction from canister on electrolux guardian model c154e. green light on switch is on


Have you remove the hose and checked the suction at the intake of the vacuum? If the motor is running there will be suction.
If there's suction here, attach the hose to the vacuum, turn it on, and check the end of the hose for suction. If there is none or very little, there's a clog or bad leak in the hose. The easiest way to check for a clog is to drop a coin in one end, lift that end up allowing the coin to drop through to the other end and out. If it drops through, the hose is clear. If not, the easiest way to clear it is to plug the hose in to the exhaust port of the vacuum, place the other end into a large garbage bag or point it outside, and turn on the vacuum. This will usually clear a blockage.
Leaks that are severe enough to result in no suction will be readily apparent as tears, cracks, or cuts in the hose. A crushed hose will also result in the loss of suction.
If suction is fine at the end of the hose, do a visual check of the wands. It's unusual for them to be blocked, but not impossible.
Check the power nozzle above and behind the brush and where it attaches to the wand. The elbow can catch long objects resulting in a blockage.
If there don't appear to be any problems with the above mentioned items, you need to take the vacuum, with attachments, to a repair shop to have it checked. It may need a new motor, but that would be due to worn out or broken fans, and that is unlikely with Electrolux vacuum motors years older than that.

I would use a snake for plumbing (sinks) and feed it down the hose to find and clear this blockage if you can remove the hose compressed air may also work.

Suction perfect when in upright position, but when tilted to actually clean there is total loss of suction - cannot see blockage anywhere. Thanks for your help.


If you are confident there are no blockages, look underneath, where the brush is, and you will see a short length of reinforced clear plastic hose. This often develops a split which results in loss of suction. You can pull the hose off at the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush end to examine it thoroughly. If you find a split, it's best not to try and tape it up (except as a very temporary measure) - a new one is not expensive.

Loss of suction!


you can tell if the vacuum is not run properly by the sound and no suction. check all the hoses and line, more likely is clog up and it the only reason why any vacuum cleaner seem to run louder and run hot due to the line is clog. check the hose line at the bottom of the base where the suction located with the pickup brush; it tend to get clog at the base.

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
