Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Filter Queen vacuum.. It doesn't seem like the suction is very good on my vacuum. Have had for a while. Ideas how I can improve suction

Answers :

First eliminate other possible causes: check for blockages and leaks in \015\012the tubes, and obstructions or tangles in the rotating brush. This sort \015\012of thing comes under the category of regular maintenance\015\012 that you should be doing every now and then anyway. If none of those \015\012things is the cause, then you should replace the drive belt. Other possible solutions can be checked out on the following links

You might not enjoy doing this but over a period of time moisture and dirt build up in the sucktion hose of your vacuum and forms hard dirt clods. You will n ieed to take the suction hose loose from the beater brush assemby and take a stick or wire coat hanger run it up in the suction hose. You will be able to feel the clods twist the coat hanger a loosen up the clods then shake the hose untill clods start falling out. This will solve your suction problem

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!
