SOURCE: Suction

i can think of 2 things first do"s the clutch{ if it has one}work or is it in the off postion you can test this by lying the dyson on it"s side and turning it on but remember to push down on the bottom as if you was hoovering if the brush spins then its ok if it dosen" move then replace it second take the bucket off and remove the bin tune it upside down and see if it is blocked if so the best way to clean it is to sit it upside down and put a hose pipe in then just wait till the water runs clean hope this is some use to you

SOURCE: Suction

Might be the hepa filter needs cleaning? This is located in the housing on the side of the cleaner at the bottom (see your manual to find it). It is a big spongy ring which Dyson say you should remove once a month and wash in warm water. Dry off and replace in cleaner when completely dry. I've found this works and the suction is like that of a new machine!

SOURCE: no suction with Eureka Boss Pro Lightweight Bagless Upright, 411A

I checked the vacuum hose to see if there was a clog. 1st, disconnect the hose from the unit so you have access to both ends. Now, place a marble or other ball in one of the hose and see if it will make it all the way through. I found a major "hairball" about 8-10 in down from the vacuum end. I took a metal cloths hanger and bent it in half and did a "roto-rooter operation. It took about 30 minutes, but now it runs like new. I hope this works for you.

SOURCE: Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet

Ours did the same thing. I cleaned the filter and canister thoroughly. It needed to be cleaned, but that didn't fix the problem. I removed the plate under the carpet brush bar (three quarter-turn screws) and removed all hair, lint and threads from the rollers and brush. THEN my husband found the real problem: a piece of flexible hose running from the head into the hose (on the left side when behind the vacuum) was completely clogged. The hose will detach from the head, and you can remove debris. Once that clog was removed, the hose easily re-attaches, and we had great suction once again.

SOURCE: bissel proheat 2x main suction problems

most likely your jets are clogged up. take off the clear water container and you will see the two jets that spray water. they are red and flat. you will need to squeeze each on together and pull it up. then you can clean it. after you clean it, pull the trigger while the unit is running, should flush the rest of the trash in the line. you might have to clean it a couple of times.
make sure the flap door in the diveter, in the clear cover, is moving to floor cleaning. this does break sometimes.

Dyson dc14 has lost suction


Down on the lower right hand side of the vacuum, when you're behind it, there is a little 'J' shaped piece with a purple clip on it. Tilt the vacuum up and unclip this. Usually, people who have these amazing vacuums will accidently **** up things like lollipop sticks/pens/paperclips/etc. that don't bend... and will stay in this piece. This should solve your problem.

I have a Eureka "The Boss" vacuum that doesnt seem to be sucking up as much as it should and did in the past when vacuuming on carpet and hard floor surfaces.


I have a Eureka "The Boss" vacuum that doesn’t seem to be sucking up as much as it should and did in the past when vacuuming on carpet and hard floor surfaces.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This could be because the vacuum has a clog or blockage, it may need a belt change every 4 to 6 months as recommended by the factory, sometimes the material you pickup on the carpet and bare floors will plug the pores of the inside if the paper bag or dirt cup filter, if the filter is clogged it looses the suction power or the bottom plate is not on properly or all of the above. These are some of the items to check when you lose suction.
