Hi,

Did you dry the filter for 12 hours before reinstalling and giving a go? Most suction problems are from a blockage of some kind. The Dyson website seems to think it's the filter.
Here is a website which has instructions on washing the filter: http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1464&product=DC07-SY-HEPA_US

Hope this works for you. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Ther is no suction in the power tool hose . the soap is dispensed but no suction or at best a very very very faint suction


This sounds like a clogged Lint Filter. The filter (looks like a screen) is located on the Tank Cap. Remove it and clean and put it back. Don't run the unit without the filter. If that doesn't work then try the Flow Indicator Filter (Turn the Flow Indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it, lift out the rotor and filter. Clean filter and reassemble in reverse order.

No suction only the blower works its a canister model


Loss of suction is invariably caused by a blockage. Sometimes I have needed to rod out the hose but mostly servicing the filters are what is needed.

Filters generally remain fairly clean but some spillage of bag contents due to over-filling or a burst bag can block a filter in a very short time.
It isn't unusual for users to remove the filters for better suction but the next time the bag bursts the contents are sucked through the motor and sprayed back into the local atmosphere. It is often the ruination of the motor.

It stopped working while vacuuming. Still getting power, compressor still working but not sucking.


I'm an owner of an LG LuV200R vacuum cleaner. After years of use it started having an overheating issue where the suction motor stopped after only a few minutes use. The brush motor and compressor motor still worked. After cooling down with power off for at least a few minutes suction motor worked again but quickly shut down. Here's how I fixed mine:

First make sure to clean all 3 filters and let dry for 24 hours if cleaned with water (recommend, but compressed air works good too). A clogged HEPA filter could cause overheating. Check all air passages and hoses for blockages. I've always maintained/cleaned my machine so I had to go a little deeper...

On the control board there is a semiconductor which screws to a right angle aluminum heatsink. See attached picture. My screw was slightly loose; loose enough for there to be a tiny gap between the metals so little heat was dissipated from the semiconductor. My infrared thermometer showed 260°F while running. I tightened the screw and running temp went down to 160°F. Once reassembled the vacuum has yet to overheat and shut down. It's a great vacuum so I'm glad it's working again.

To access the control board you need to remove the front facing plastic motor housing located below where the cord is stored. ALWAYS unplug unit before opening. 2 screws face the rear of unit, (now tilt top of vacuum down all the way) 2 screws face the front at the bottom, and 2 more right above HEPA filter (remove HEPA filter). There is a nut behind culprit screw so you may need to remove the control board attached with 2 screws. I recommend using compressed air to clean off control board if dusty, and check for cut/burnt wires. I had a darkened wire which I guided away from control board at reassembly.

A dab of locktite wouldn't be a bad idea on the loose screw/nut. Hope this helps others.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.


Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

I have a dyson dc 17 what is the best way to thourghly cleaning , so I can get better suction , also do you have a instruction manul to. I seem to have misplaced mine thanks


The first step towards improving the suction is to clean the circular HEPA filter. The filter also houses a circular sponge which should be rinsed and dried before putting it back. Check the HEPA filter to see if it needs replacement -- will look muddy! Another quick check is to remove the HEPA filter, run the vacuum cleaner momentarily in upright position to check if suction is restored at the hose end.

After doing this if suction is still poor or non existent, you should detach the transparent canister - a bit tricky since the release rod for the flap has to be aligned when you want to reassemble the unit.
Once the canister is removed, you should check and clean the center tube/shaft for any clogged dust (use a wire coat hanger if needed to pry out the dust). This tube gets clogged if the vacuum cleaner was used to pick up damp/wet spills etc.

The suction on my eureka optima stopped working but the roller still works, what might i do to fix it?


Hi there. Most suction problems are due to a blockage. Start with the base and look carefully for debris that is stopping air flow. You may have to remove the base plate to get to the problem. I am including a link to the manual for your machine. look on page four so see how to remove the base and check for blocked airways. http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/75287_eng.pdf

No suction


have u checked all of the filters. I know that when not all the filters r clean the machine will turn on but then it will sound louder and still have no suction. Most times there is a filter under dirt container thats sits above motor and if this filter is not clean the motor cannot breath. Thus no suction
