Hello
Possible clogged hose.Run a broomstick or long pole through the hose to unclog it.

Then check your prefilter should be down by the front light,should be washable.

Last... be sure the hepa filter is clean an in the right way.

Are you sure that you are correctly connecting the filter, and flipping the tabs to "lock" it into the "closed" position.

Vacuum appears to be blowing dust out rather than sucking up dust


Check Hepa Filter if it has one or other resevoir for excess dust/dirt. Clean receptacle and replace filter.

My hoover upright started blowing instead of vacuuming; it blows out of the attachment connection also when I try to use that.


Is this a bagless vacuum? Some Hoovers work in the opposite from conventional designs; the dirt is blown into dirt cup instead of sucked into a paper bag. If you have this type of vacuum, check the HEPA filter (and any prefilter, if applicable) and gently clean it so as not to damage the filter media.

If this does not help, please resubmit your request with a model number.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

What filters do i need for the eureka the boss bagless vacuum w/widetrack modal 4495


There is a Cassette Micron Filter 60696.If you have a HEPA cartridge filter you need EUREKA's HEPA part 61500.In earlier models there is a micron filter instead of a HEPA filter--for that you need EUREKA's Micron part 60801. But if you have that HEPA filter, the manual says you have to use the HEPA filter to achieve the closed HEPA filtration system again.

Vacuum blows out dust/pet hair etc. when in use


try replacing the belt if you havent. it almost sounds like your getting weak aggitation. if thats not bad, check for a clog in the brushroll housing nozzle right on the inside by the tube. Replace the inside hepa filter if you havent within the last 3 months.

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks


Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.
