Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The vaccum cleaner is switching on but it not sucking any items.


Answers :

Hi there,\012

Well first of all you can follow the below steps -
1. Start by checking the brush head of the vacuum to see if anything is stuck at the very beginning, and if so, remove the blockage.
2. Next remove the straight wands and look through them for a blockage before doing the same with the flexible hose. It is easy to look through the flexible vacuum hose by letting one end dangle and looking downward toward the floor.
3. To remove any blockage, gently push a rod similar to a broomstick though the vacuum tubing.
4. Lastly, check out the machine itself. While all vacuums are different, most of them have a removable plate on the backside and you only need to remove the screws and take off this plate to get at the areas that might be blocked. hope it helps......

Good Luck!!
