Hello! The umbrella tube is a stationary part, it does not rotate. The dirt that enters in the dirt cup spins around the umbrella tube. If no dirt is entering into the dirt cup this can mean there is a blockage either in your hoses and/or your filters. Try these quick trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose. Hope this helps!

Good be a bad sensor, but if less then a year old, it is under warranty. I would take it in to a warranty repair shop and have them fix it.

Dyson dc17 clogging hose near brush, no dirt going into cyclone canister.


all battery vacs work on the same principle
so you have to clean out the hose behind the brush right up to the canister.
Hoover air stick has the same problem so they changed the head so that a removable section can be taken out the hose pulled up and a bottle brush can be used to clean out the hose to the canister and behind the brush
You will have to clean out behind the brush up to the canister to fix the problem

My hoover harmony overheats and stops running. when it cools down it can be started again = what seems to be the problem? is there anything I can do to troubleshoot?? please help


clean it out.
There's probably something jammed up in there
What were you vacuming when it originally went out or what is the typical items (other than dirt) which you are not picking up prior to vacuuming?

take the vacuum head off the end of the tube , turn the machine and place your hand over the end of the tube
if it sucks your hand onto the tube , the machine is working as a vacuum machine
then check fro a blockage in the elbow section near the head
if there is no vacuum , junk it and get a new one

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

I have a dyson hoover. up to last week it worked fine. now it will not hoover up bits!!! i have to keep taking the long attahcment off and using that instead which is not ideal!! hubby has checked...


Check the inspection air tubes on the Dyson - you don't say what model this is - and each model does have air inspection tubes but can be different to each model - which can usually clog up with dirt/debris thus making the machine difficult to pick up. Certainly sounds like there is some kind of clog between the main dust channel from the sole plate/floor head where the roller brush is.

Dirt finder sensor stopped working


I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.
