    both the hose and bag have been totally cleaned out. I think that something behind the plastic housing is clogging it up. Is there an online diagram somewhere which shows how to take apart?

If you don't have a second vacuum to try and connect and **** the clog out then use one of those old metal clothes hangers we all have laying around. Straighten it out and try to dislodge the clog in the line.

No suction


The hose is clogged up. Try disconnecting the hose and loosen the clog. If you try to pick up pine needles, they are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper.

How do I switch the vacuum from floor to accessory suction


It automatically switches over when you disconnect the hose from the power nozzle. No suction it getting to the power nozzle, so the suction is only through the attachments. If there is no suction through the hose, check for clogs in the hose and in the tank where the hose plugs in. Also, check the screen at the bottom of the tank. If there is a clog in the hose or tank, then there also will be no suction to the power nozzle.
Remove all clogs and you should get suction.

Everything seems to be working fine except it has no suction. I changed the bag and filter, but still nothing.


Probaly a clogged suction tube, unplug the vacuum first then tilt the vacuum upside down and see if you can see a clog .On the back side of the brush it will be kinda funnel shaped and that leads to your suction tube . That is the most common place for a clog.

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.

My Electrolux guardian C135 vac has lost suction. replacing the bag does nothing. removing the HEPA filter has no effect - what do you suggest? Will a replacement HEPA filter make any significant...


No you have a clog in the hose, wand or at the power head. Remove the hose wand and power head from the the vacuum. Turn on the vacuum, put the palm of your hand over the hole in front, you should feel plunty of suction. Then replace just the hose and put the palm of your hand over the end of the hose. If you do not have suction the clog is in the hose. You can try putting the hose on the blower port to blow out the clog or use the wire from a coat hanger. If you have suction, then add just the wand and repeat. If you have suction, then the clog is in the neck of power head, you will have to use a coat hanger to clear it.

Loss of suction!


you can tell if the vacuum is not run properly by the sound and no suction. check all the hoses and line, more likely is clog up and it the only reason why any vacuum cleaner seem to run louder and run hot due to the line is clog. check the hose line at the bottom of the base where the suction located with the pickup brush; it tend to get clog at the base.

Reverse Suction


You have a clog either at the inlet by the brush roll or in the hose. Pull the hose and check for suction at the end of the hose, If it is ok there, then you have a clog from where the hose hooked into and the inlet at the bottom. If at the end of the hose there is no suction, take the hose off and see if you see a clog in it. If no clog there, then check all filters, if they get clogged, then air can't flow thru them and no suction.

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
