My bissell 3120-3 is not sucking up dirt - Vacuums


Answers :

If the vacuum is not sucking up dirt first check the hose to see if there is suction if you dont have suction there you need to follow the hose to the nearest connection remove the hose from there using screwdriver or some models will twist off check to see if there are any blockages, make sure the bag is not full if so replace bag with new one if needed, if bagless or if that dosent resolve the problem remove the cover plate for the roller, remove the roller and check the suction port that routes the dirt and debris to the dirt cup or the bag. you will just need to check all of the different routes to the bag or dirt cup, the best thing to have is a blower and you can blow through the different passways untill the clog is blown out, thanks I am sure that this info will help everyone if in alb visit the Vacuum Doctor, Don the doctor is always in!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
