Hi r_holdsworth,

You got a deal! 2in1, blows and vacuums....

Actually, when vacuums blow instead of sucking, there is a clog somewhere. Usually, it's something that has been vacuumed up.

If you can't find the clog, please reply back with your model number and I'll find an exploded view of your machine for you to look at.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I have an Eureka Altima Model 2961AVZ vacuum that suddenly stopped picking up. I have taken it apart, checked the belt which was fine, replaced the hepa filter, and checked for clogs in all the hoses


Is the beater bar actually turning when the power is turned on? Sometimes the belt is fine, but something is jammed and keeping the beater bar from turning. What about the section behind the beater bar, but before the hose upright. I've found large pieces of paper jammed in here and then hair gets caught, ultimately blocking the whole system. Usually you have to turn it over, remove some screws and disconnect the belt and beater bar to get underneath. Just reassemble it in the reverse order to how you took it apart. Double check the hoses and run a "unwound" metal coat hanger through to unclog anything. Does the vacuum " suck" with the hose or tube up to it disconnected? If not you may have a motor that somehow got junk pulled into it. You can open this up as well and clean this out. Of course unplug it all before doing anything.

Suction stopped. Roller and belt working-in fine order. Checked hoses have not found any blockage. Blowing out air or sucking so little can't feel it with hand on hose end. Help!


Either a blockage or the main air filter is blocked , some it can be washed and others it must be replaced

I would check the owner manual and look at the filter, foam ones can and usually have instructions where they install to wash them.

A clogged inlet. Something is likely clogging the opening where the dirt goes in. Paper, cellophane, or anything else light enough to get sucked in but too large to pass through.

No suction


OK - Details details details.....

If the motor turns on and only sucks a little bit or you are experiencing a great loss of suction,.
THEN
You have a plug somewhere
Be it a partial block from say a HEPA Filter
or else it is a block in the path of travel where items get sucked up into your vacume.

If you look back to the last time someone used it, was it a fine powder which was cleaned up? then look to the filter (see owners manual for maintenance and or cleaning of the vacume machine) Otherwise is it possible that someone else used it and get it clogged with something larger? Although I'm thinking it is the HEPA filter needing cleaning...

The good news is that if the machine turns on, then you know you have a block somewhere in it, bottom line is you will need to find the clog and you'll be back up and running in no time.

Best regards

near the bottom of the vacume where the hose bends down to the floor sweeper, check to make sure there is no blockage. this is the most common problem with vacume suction. you can use a wire coat hanger to help loosen the dirt and debris from the line and it is sometimes easier to clean properly if you remove the bottom plate ( like you would if you were changing the belt ). also while you are getting dirty and having fun, this is a good time to clean the air filter, ( tap it out good or/and use a brush or air compressor to clear and clean ).

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.


You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.

Be sure when you put the dirtant dust container in place that it is in properly. I have had this and believe it or not this container has enough room to fit without it seating properly. Take the dust container out and reseat it making sure the bottom is secure and then turn the lock lever in place. Try it again. What happens is you get an air gap which allows some air to flow but the vacum does not function properly.

Is barely sucking up anything


I dont fix vacumes but I would say if you took the vacume apart you will find that it has a blockage. Clean it out and it should work fine.
