Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My central kenmore vacuum wont suction

\015 The large cannister was full and the vacuum lacked suction so i emptied the cannister but it still wont suction properly? i have tried to clean the cloth filter on the bottom of the large canister in the basement and i have checked all the outlets and they all have good suction. it could be that the hose itself is blocked. i dont have soemthing long enough to snake it through and see if it is unblocked. this prob started though when the cannister became too full and we emptied it but after that the suction sucked. thanks\015

Hello hdd85,
\015\012I think you answered your own question when you verified that all the vacuum outlets have vacuum on them and then after you hook up tyhe vac hose, you fail to get vacuum at the other end. I would say that based on your problem description, you have an obstruction in the hose. You may have afriend with an air compressor that you can try forcing air in one end to free up the clog but if that doesn't work, do you know anyone with a wet/dry utility vac that you can try using the vacuum or exaust side to free the hose up ? Lastly, if you know an electrician, they normally have 'snakes' used to fish wires thru wall cavities... If careful, that might get the clog out.. Hope that gives you soem ideas on how to resolve,,,,

I have a Kenmore central vacuum cleaner model number c107 34601. We have emptied the bucket and shaken the filter out to clean it. There is a filter that is filthy so we shook it out into a bag but the cleaner still seems to not have great suction. I notice there is a similar cap to the outlets I plug the central vac hose into on the unit itself that doesn't power the nozzle when used. 1 - what is this for? 2 - Should I somehow remove the entire filter and if so - can you tell me step by step ho

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction.
