My vax pet Hoover has lost its suction I've emptied it there's no blockages and Iv cleaned the filter


first, if it has a hose check for being plugged, you may have to take the vacuum apart further till you reach the fan on motor which may have hair,lint,etc wrapped around it which can cause low suction.

Why is suction substantially reduced?


blockage in the suction line
if it is the wet mode there should be a valve (ball) that sucks up to stop water from getting to the motor when the receiver is too full. If you are in wet mode and still have the dust bag in place then the bag will be a solid block of mud and that will be the blockage.

Throw away your old filter if it is not cleanable. Only clean it if it is a washable filter. If not, buy a new one

Vacuum shoots dirt or whatever it has just vacuumed out the back of the vacuum. I checked and cleaned the filter and the vacuum bag and it still leaves dirt behind the vacuum.


Good morning,

If you've checked both the bag and the filter, the next step would to check for any clogs.

I will detail what you will need to do below, or you can always reference your Owner's Guide (check: How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages)
http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/77418_r2.pdf

Step 1: Remove hose from hose retainer on the base and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check dust cup. Empty if needed. If no improvement, proceed to step 2.
(Make sure you turn off the switch and unplug the unit before proceeding to step 2)

Step 2: Remove electrical cord from cord hooks. Disconnect the clear tube by unscrewing the 2 screws, then lift away from cleaner. Check for any obstructions that may be in the tube or hose. Any obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to clear the tube or hose (I will sometimes you a bent hanger or a retractable pointer). Flexing the hose may help loosen the blockage. After clearing blockage, reverse above steps to reassemble unitpcfloy86_0.jpg.

I hope this helps. If so, please give this solution a thumbs up!
Have a good day

Dyson hose does not produce alot of suction when extended.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. with the machine locked in the upright positino, remove the hose from the machine, switch on and test the suction. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If the suction is strong, you will need to check the wand for a blockage. If the suction is still poor, check the hose for a blockage.

You may find it useful to wash the filter as this can sometimes cause a drop in performance if its dirty and it wuold be more noticable from the hose.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

Poor suction


Check for blockages in the pipework, particularly around the bends.

Usually the bend sections are removable for inspection.

If there are no blockages, make sure all the removable pipes are fitted correctly, so they are sealed.

Also check the slider control on the hose which lets in air to reduce suction.
