Having problems with your Vacuums ?
The suction in my vacum is not good. I changed
\015 The suction in my vacum is not good. I changed the hepa filter and it is not better. I tried to use the outflow of the vacum to blow up a pool float and hardly any air is coming out.\015
Depending on the type of vaccuum you may have another filter. I have a hoover and there is the hepa filter and another filter under the dirt container. If thats not the case, try taking off the entire hose and shaking it around. There may be stuff crammed in there. If one thing gets stuck, then everything else sticks to that. I had the same problem and when I took off the hose and shook it, a bunch of nails fell out (remodeling) and it worked fine after that.

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But
Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum

My Infinity Shark vacuum has lost suction. The pitch sound changes very soon after turning it on. I believe the lower hose is clogged, and I cannot get the body cove unattached where the hose bends upwards into the chamber. So much for their claim of never losing suction!
