Over 21 years repairing vacuum cleaners, I have removed yards of duct tape,surgical tape and package tape from hoses.wands and cords. I have found the best repair method for torn hoses is a product called "Stretch and Seal". This is a silicone-based tape that has no adhesive, but adheres to itself as it is stretched around the hose. If there are any breaks. debris will not stick, because there is no adhesive. Because it literally becomes one with the hose. this is a permanent repair. The one caveat is that the applied surface must be clean, with no grease or loose dirt. At $7 a roll, it is not cheap, but saving upwards of $100 or more on a new hose is worth the expense.

    Gorilla has just just came out with a similar product to the "Stretch n Seal", but $3 less per roll.

I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.

Just seems to blow bits around rather than suck


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few things that may be causing your vacuum to lose suction. When filters need to be washed or changed, this may cause a loss in suction. Depending on the use of your vacuum, filters need to be changed every 3 to 6 months. If your unit has washable filters, these should be cleaned every 2 to 4 weeks, to maintain the highest filtration and suction in your unit.

If the filters have been properly changed and/or washed, the problem may be caused by a clog in your floor nozzle hose. Most upright units have short hose that connect the floor base to the motor, this hose can easily get clogged and cause loss of suction. You may check the hose by un-clipping it from your unit and cleaning the inside with a damp cloth.

If the problem still persists, you may need to check your unit's brushroll, also known as roller brush or agitator. Check to see if your brushroll is spinning properly, if it has any hair strands tangled or any debris remains that is preventing it from running properly.

Lg 300B no suction through hose


If you have a loss of suction overall, that generally means one of two things, either you have a clog somewhere near the motor or the motor is fried and will never turn fast enough to make proper vac.

Loss of suction o=with hose tool


Hose or tool is probably clogged. Is this an upright? Bagged or bagless? Have you changed the bag and filters? Cleaned out the brush and hose that goes from the brush area to the collection bag/cup? The only reason for a vacuum cleaner to lose suction but still work is a clog or dirty filter which blocks the air flow. Follow the air flow from the brushes to the bag/dirt cup. If the machine is bagged, change the bag. I use another vacuum cleaner to do this.While your at it, might as well change the belt.

Loss of suction on hand tools (DC07)


It sounds like there's probably a clog in the hose. Drop a small coin or marble down the hose and see if it falls through. There's going to be a loss of suction in the power nozzle too, just not as noticeable when vacuuming carpet.
There could also be a clog behind the filter where the hose plugs into tank, or a dirty filter.
