Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

No suction on main unit

My hose has plenty of suction but when I try to vacuum the dust on the hardwoods, it just blows the trash backwards, it will not pick up anything unless I use the hose. THanks.

Take the top cover off and check the inlet hose by the brush roll for a clog.

Clogged light staying on despite there being no clog, won't pick up anything with even just the hose.


If the light goes out if you disconnect the hose, there's something in the hose or wand.

No suction


The hose is clogged up. Try disconnecting the hose and loosen the clog. If you try to pick up pine needles, they are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

I cant figure out how it works. seems like it does not pick up anything from carpet


Probably the hose is clogged. You must clean it to regain suction. Dont try to **** it through with the motor, you will burn the motor. You will have to loosen one end or the other or both to clear the hose. You might be able to clear it using a shop vac pulling backward to the normal flow.

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down
