My Kenmore Central Vac loses suction
\015 Hi My Kenmore Central Vac loses suction while vacuuming, it will be doing fine... then loses it for a few seconds, then back on. If I twist the connect at the wall base the suction stays on the whole time (but then it's not lined up), I've never thought it worked well. (I've been in the house for 5 years and the unit is about 10 years old) I don't want to pay a repair guy to come out just to tell me I need to buy a new part.... is there any ideas or solutions?\015
Could be a problem in the hose if its the electrified crushproof style hose. If its 10 years old it would be worth replacing that to start and see if that solves the problem.
Do you have the same problem in all of your outlets? If you do, then there is a problem with the hose end. If it is only at one outlet, then that outlet has a problem.

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

Kenmore central vac loss of suction
No suction I am getting no suction on my central vac at the vac. I do not believe that the piping is plugged up, the vacuum is not creating suction. What are the causes of no suction at the vacuum and how do I take the top half of the Nutone central vac off?
Use the guide at builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html to find the issue and solution. Most likely you need to test it without any filter and be sure the bottom of the unit is attached :) To get access to the motors you need to unbolt the very top sides. ...

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor
On some units there is a screen that protects the impeller of the motor. If this gets sealed off with debris then it is like putting a potato in the tail pipe of a car. Taking the top off the unit reveals the motor. DO UN-PLUG the unit first from th ... Electrolux Central Vacuum
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. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

Low suction I have an Electrolux central vac that is approx. 11 yrs old. the suction is very low. this started about 1 week ago. I checked the hose and it is clear. I also went into the attic and checked the pipes(as far as I could see them) and they appeared to be intact.

What do I do when there is no suction. My central vac just stopped picking up and though I emptied the machine and replaced the filter there continues to be no suction.
1. If it's an older model, the hose is likely well worn and probably has leaks at each end where it attaches to the handle and connector at the other end. If this is the case, a new hose is needed.\015\0122. A blockage in the hose. To check t ... Electrolux Pu3650 Central System Vacuum

I bought a Kenmore canister vacuum, model 116, in April 2007. This morning, the sound of the motor suddenly began to deepen, and I began to lose suction. Normally, if something is clogging the hose, the motor will wind up to a higher pitch, not a lower one. The filters are clean, the bag is empty, and I can't detect anything lodged in the hose. If this were a car's engine, I would say it's "lugging down". Any pointers?
Okay, bear with me. Is it possible you have a suction adjustment, dial somewhere on vac. Check and see and if it does, be sure it's all the way up. Also, try removing hose and run a broom handle fr. one end to the other...BUT be careful not to stretc ... Vacuums
I sucked up some toilet paper in my central vac, and not it has almost no suction. How do I remove the block?
Start by checking the hose and wands. Next check what is in the container of the canister. If your filters are dirty it will reduce the volume of air and not clean well. After cleaning the filters check each valve to see if the volume and suction i ... M&S Systems AirVac AVP1200 Platinum Series Central Vac - 12,000 sq ft Bagged Central System Vacuum
