Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a GE dehumidifier that i hooked a garden hose to for direct drain. it will work okay for awhile then will only drain into the drain bucket. is there something i can do to ensure that it will drain through the hose consistently?


Answers :

This seems to be a fairly frequent complaint on these GE dehumidifiers, and none of the solutions I've read here or anywhere else have fixed mine. My hose is clear, straight downhill, tight to the nipple with a good gasket, no plugs visible in the nipple, but has always filled the bucket rather than drained through the hose (and it's always bone dry). After two years of this and emptying the bucket, I'm about ready to disassemble it to see if I can fix it but with all of the other unresolved complaints I've seen GE should step up to the plate and post a solution.

Shop vac has something plugging hose, I can't disconnect hose

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

Clogged Hose 8 Year old Electrolux Centralux Vacume Cleaner has a clogged hose. Seems something is lodged in the middle of the hose - about half way down.

I have an electrolux central vacuum in my house. My central vac hose has something stuck in it, I think, maybe a sock. I tried to put a long dryer wand down it but the hose is just too long. Does this need a repair man or new hose?? Any idea of a way to blow it out? Thanks.

I just got the majestic and it doesn't seem to have a lot of suction power- I ran water thru the hose and it drained out fine I also put the hose on top and blew it out. Could it still be the hose?-or does it sound like a bigger problem?

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair.

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?
