    **To dry all the (possibly) dirty water out or else mold maybe could form. Probally Also it could ruin you motor if too much moisture in the mechanism.

VACUUM BEATER BAR WONT TURN AND NO SUCTION ON FLOOR. LOTS OF SUCTION FROM HOSE.


If the belt is stretched it will not pick up properly. Try replacing the belt first. Belts should be replaced at least twice per year.

Vacuum cleaners: Loss of Suction


A common complaint about vacuum cleaners, regardless of the brand, is loss of suction. The motor runs fine, there seems to be plenty of power, and even some suction, but the vacuum just won't pick up even the lightest of items. There are some very simple checks and fixes to this problem most of the time.
The primary causes are: clogged hose, full bag, leaky hose.
Clogged hose: this is probably the most common cause, and will result in a damaged motor if not cleared.
Check: Remove hose from vacuum and wands. Holding one end, drop a marble or small ball into the opening and allow to roll through. If it doesn't come through the end, then the hose is clogged.
Solution: If you have a canister vacuum with an exhaust port, try connecting the hose to this and turning machine on. If the clog isn't too bad, this may clear it. If not, more extreme measures may be needed.
Never attempt to clear a clog with a coat hanger or similar length of wire, as this could easily puncture the house. Do not use water or high air pressure gun to clear hose.
Full bag: Check bag. Change if necessary. If it seems the bag should hold a little more, well, it's not worth replacing a motor, or the vacuum, trying to find out. Bag pores are easily clogged if the machine is used for cleaning construction areas where sheet rock dust is abundant. Ensure you’re using genuine bags for your machine.
Leaky hose: Over time, hoses suffer from normal wear and tear, and often abuse, resulting in cracks and holes, often too small to notice. Hoses need to be replaced at this time, and this generally results in a dramatic increase in "suction". There simply is no fix for a leaky hose.
Solution: Always store the hose properly to avoid kinking, crimping, smashing, etc. Avoid stepping on the hose, or leaving in an area where it may get stepped on , driven over, or smashed. Avoid pulling the vacuum by the hose, or otherwise stretching/stressing the hose.

Sounds like you have a blockage in your hose, remove it and try to see if there is debris in the hose...remove the debris and it should work fine.

I cleaned out the hose and removed brush to clean and checked belt. Everything seems to work but will not pick up or suction on carpet. The hose is totally clear from clogs. I can see the floor from one...


Hi troupdavid,

I see that your Vacuum is having issues with it suction, you mentioned that you took it a part to clean it, see steps below.

  • Check if everything is inserted properly and is in place.
  • make sure the the Vacuum airflow does not have anywhere else to come out from, cause if there is, the vacuum suction will really not be really getting enough suction to be able to get dirt Off the floor.
  • Make sure the bag is correctly placed in the Vacuum and is tucked in properly for proper suction.
  • The hose should be twisted to be locked into Place, either clock wise or counter clockwise which ever makes it lock to the hose socket.
  • Also check the agitator shield beneath making sure that the Belt is not pinched in or squished by the Agitator and the Agitator shield, this can also cause lack of suction for the Vacuum.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your query.

Have a nice day,

Dirt is picking up but not going in to the dirt cup


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Sounds like an obstruction to me (ie a blockage somewhere). Start by taking off the hose and testing to see if you have suction where the hose attatches. If you do have suction put the hose back on and feel it as if you are going to vacuum the couch, if you have lost suction you must have an obstruction in the hose which has to be removed. The other likely place to look is under the machine behind the brush.
Hope this helps - Happy Vacuuming ! :)
If not send me a message and ill try and help you further!.

Suction/Brush not working


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here.
There are a couple of common reasons that your electrolux vacuum cleaner would appear to have lost it's suction. The first and most common is that it has actually broken a belt. If the belt is broken the brushes won't spin and it will not pick up dirt. It is easy to test simply turn the vacuum on, release the handle (as if you were about to vacuum carpet) and lift up the head and see if the brushes are spinning. If not i can supply you with a new belt.
If the brushes are spinning then your next most likely cause is that there is a blockage in the vacuum somewhere. Test this by turning machine on and checking the suction at the hose (as if your were going to vacuum the couch) if it is poor then remove hose and fish out blockage. If it is ok you may have a blockage between hose and the brush of the vacuum.
If it is neither of these problems i can trouble shoot over the phone if you live in Australia 0269215200 or by email nelsonvacuums@netspace.net.au
Happy Vacuuming.. :)

Main powerhead useless


Make sure that the vacuum hole in the head unit, or the wand, or the hose is not blocked. You may also want to check the bag to make sure that the inlet hole is not blocked. The only reason for spitting things back out is that the suction is not working properly...

Dyson DC07 hose has no suction


Just resolved the same problem...couldn't find a blockage anywhere, but pulled handle out of hose and extended hose as far as possible upward. Aha! There was blockage in the hose at the very bottom where the flexible hose meets the rigid part.. There is a lever which releases the entry to the bottom of the hose. A pencil, lots of coins, a crumpled receipt and general dirt were stuck. Easy to clean and now it works like new again.
