Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. 1st. I do not know the brand name and model # fr the vacuum so the next time include that type of information. So, if you removed the towel from the hose section then there almost has to be something in the powerhead and the power nozzle neck there would have to be a clog and you need to open the powernozzle and look for a clog of some sort in the power nozzle or the wand section that would block the flow of the dust and dirt to the canister section. Check your owner’s manual to see the trouble shooting section for unclogging your vacuum. 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
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Solution will not spray on carpet unless you use tools or spot spray also brushes are not turning


proheat 9300

Remove the water tank. You will see 2 red tabbed plastic spray tubes.(where the spray comes out if not clogged) Pinch the clips to remove from the machine. Then you will need to pinch the hose clips to remove the red tabs from the hose. Clean out those red spray nozzles. Next step: have a towel ready and fill the solution tank with water. Put the solution (not water) tank on to where the water tank would go. Place the machine selection knob to rinse/wet only. Now with towel under the hoses that you removed the red tabs. Turn on the machine and pull the trigger to activate the water. You should see water flow out of the hoses that had the red tabs on them. If not, release and pull again the trigger several times. If only 1 hose has water coming out of it then block the one that works and try the process above again to de clog the one that isn't working. Good luck.

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

Vacuum will not pick up, the dirt just lays inthe bottom of the hose and does not get sucked up,i looked for aclog but there isn,t one


Are the filters clean? Is the brush roll turning? Otherwise check the dirt inlet by the brush roll for a clog. Pull the hose off from the bottom, is there suction there? If there is, then the problem is below where the hose is pullged into. If no suction, then there is a clog in the hose, take it off, (if it comes off completely), drop something like a heavy marble down the hose and see if it comes out or not.

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

I have an Electrolux Lux 7000. My son sucked a small towel into the hose, which is stuck inside the hose close to the attachment end. Can this model blow expel air so I can blow the towel out?


If it does, it should have a door on the top near the back. But if not then something like a plumbers snake or long needle nose plyers may help get it out.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
