Model C153C The vacuum cleaner starts but stops immediately. If I disconnect the hose it will run but if I partially put my hand over the suction it shuts off. Both filters have been changed.

Hi

If the vacuum cleaner works but then shuts off unexpectedly, it may be because of restricted airflow which can cause the vacuum cleaner to overheat and shutdown. Check the vacuum cleaner for clogs and if the bag/tank is full. Remove all clogs and change the bag or empty the tank. Another reason is poor or no suction .There could be a clog in the hose or the bag/tank may be full and need to be replaced or emptied. Also, check the belt to see if it is worn or broken; if it's defective replace it.

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.

I have a Dyson DC07 and it has lost suction. I have checked the belt, cleaned the circular filter and emptied the dirt chamber. The hose still has plenty of suction but I can't use the hose the vacuum...


Here are some things you can check.First you need to see if the problem is with the suction or agitation.If the suction on the hose for using the attachments is low you either need new filters a new cyclone(they are not cleanable) or it is clogged.To check for a clogg remove the cyclone and turn on the vacuum cleaner.you can put your hand over the suction side of the handle tub and feel if it has suction there.Reinstall the cyclone and again check the hose.If it is the same you don't likley have a suction problem you have an agitation problem.The 2 belts on the DC07 are part of the clutch and when they are strectched to a certain point (3-5years) the clutch needs to be replaced.you can check the clutch by turning on the vacuum cleaner and applying slight pressure downward on the front of the vacuum head.If the vacuum makes a loud ratcheting noise or you can stop the brush from turning the problem is most likely the clutch.One last thing is to make sure the bottom plate is on correctly I often see a misaligned bottom plate and the brush dosen't hit the carpet so it dosen't pick up.  www.sewvac.com

What do to if keeps spitting things out even if new bag is in?


It sounds like the roller brush is going, but the vacuum isn't working, i.e., no suction.
If you have a canister vacuum, disconnect wands from hose and place hand at end of hose. If there is suction, it's fine. If not, disconnect hose from vacuum, turn on vacuum, and hold hand to intake. If there's suction here, then the hose must be clogged; or holey hose can result in greatly reduced suction.
If it's an upright, the hose could be clogged. Or the fan broken, which would also result in no suction. It would help to know what model you have.

No suction of the water from carpet after soap is applied


Hello :

1: A vacuum pulls air through the bag, then through the tube attachment and then through the base (with the spinning agitator brush).

2:Check for signs of suction. Remove the tube attachment from its cradle and, after turning on the vacuum, put your hand to the end of the tube. Is there any suction at all? If there is a little bit of suction then you may have a clogged air tube.

3:Check the vacuum bag. It may be very full. If it is then remove the bag and replace it with a new bag. Check the suction power again. Has the suction improved?

4:Check the tube attachment. Completely remove it from the vacuum. You usually have to twist and pull the tube attachment out of place at the point where it connects to the back of the vacuum. Check the suction power again. This time you place your hand on the vacuum right where the tube used to come out of the back of the vacuum. Has the suction improved?

5:If the suction power has improved then you probably have a clogged tube. Dog hair, people hair, leaves and more can get lodged in the tube slowly over time and then suddenly block the tube completely.

6:Clean the tube by first trying to shake the debris out of the tube. If this does not work then go outside and run a hose through the tube. Use a pressure nozzle if you have one. Run the hose through one end of the tube. Then run it through the other end. Repeat until the debris is disloged. Dry the tube and then reattach to the vacuum.

7:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

8:Check the air hose in the base of the vacuum. This hose is usually pretty short and you can see if there is any blockage. If you see blockage then try to remove it. You may need to reach into the hose with a tool (like a screw driver or something long).

9:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

10:If you made it to this step then you may have a problem with the motor on your vacuum. If this is the case then you will need to take the vacuum in to a repair shop.

Things you will need :
1 Philips screw driver
1 flat head screw driver

Warning :


# Always unplug electrical devices before you work on them.

# Never work on electrical devices around water or when you are wet.

I hope this will help .

Lost suction from cleaning dyson roller brush


Hello,

This is actually a very common problem that we see for repair on Dyson Vacuums. Usually what happens is that the vacuum doesn't loose suction like most people think. You can test this by feeling the suction power on the hose. If you have suction coming from here, then most likely the machine isn't clogged.

What happens is that the bottom soleplate on the vacuum cleaner can easily be re-installed the incorrect way. If this happens the brushes on the vacuum cleaner can not even hit the carpet, which makes the vacuum feel like it's not picking up, but when the suction is tested from the hose it has plenty.

We see a lot of Dysons come in for repair with this problem. The bottom plate is not flush with the rest of the vacuum cleaner. Here's a picture of what an improperly installed bottom soleplate looks like:

When the bottom plate is put back on the vacuum, you should make sure that the bottom plate (the purple colored part in the picture) is flush with the agitator housing tray (red part in the picture). If not, the brushes will not hit the carpeting, and the vacuum won't really pick up anything.

This is how a correctly installed bottom soleplate should look like:

This should be the first thing you should check on your vacuum cleaner as it's the easiest and most common solution. If this doesn't fix your Dyson, please just use the Clarification Request form, and let me know which exact Dyson model you have, and whether the vacuum has suction power from the hose, whether the brushes turn when set to the carpet setting, and how old the vacuum is. I'd be happy to try and further diagnosis the problem with you.

I hope that this was helpful to you. If it helped you, please be sure to rate the repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner.

Thank you very much,

No suction


well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (maybe in the bag compartment towards the top. You can take out the filter holder and plug the hose in there and run the unit . Does the blockage come out? If not, Try shaking the hose, or you can put a stiff wire in it to try to free it. Do not run water through it. If there is no blockage at all, then you will probably need to take it to a service center. But I am pretty confident that we are looking at a clog situation. Let me know if this fixesya! Thanks, Rene (vacuum Doctor)

I have a vacuum cleaner model Z5245 and the flexible hose keeps sucking together and stopping suction. This is the bit with the stop start controls on it. How do I repair this or replace it?


If theres a clog, then youll have to remove the entire section of hose from the vacuum and use a non blunt stick - bamboo sticks are excellent for this purpose. Stretch the whole hose out and put the stick down the hose until you can wriggle the stick down the hose - this usually gets rid of most clogs until it falls out - then you may have to reverse the hose on the other side to dislodge anything which gets stuck from the control side. 
You may have to take your model back to Eureka/Electrolux for it to be repaired if theres a clog.
