Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Loss of suction and bag full
\015 It is a Eureka 6989 canister vacuum, the bag full indicator shows it as 100% full. I changed the bag, cleaned the filters (the standard and the HEPA) and it is still showing as full. I have checked the hoses to insure there is no obstruction. While doing this the suction is diminished!\015
Sounds like you still have a clog, either in the hose, drop something down it to see if it comes out the other side. The other place is the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Take off either the top cover or the bottom plate and you can check it out.

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!
