Having problems with your Vacuums ?
No suction, brushes move
\015 You asked the previous person for the model. When in full upright and locked position it works. When reclined it doesn't provide suction, and the brushes move nicely. When using the tools, hose etc., it works. Any idea.\015
Well you did not provide make and model either. If a Hoover, there is a valve on some that depending which position the handle is in, will be open or closed. It may not be working, so when in the upright, there is suction for the hose, but when you tip the handle back, the valve doesn't move and blocks suction from below. You will have to remove the top cover to check it out.

I have a new STEAM VAC Dual V All Terrain Carpet and Hardwood Cleaner. I have used it once and it worked well. Now, the second time, I have no water return. I checked the tank location, the brushes are moving slowly (but the plastic surrounding around the brushes moves as well ??) Water is coming out. There is hot air blowing out, but there is no air suction. What is wrong? Ursula Litzcke

Model UH60010, Series X12.0, Mfg code K09A. While attempting to use the hose and the extensions to clean shelves, my wife reported no suction. I removed the brush roller and the plastic piece just below where the hose opening is located and saw a "flapper" door that was closed and had some debris sort of jamming it. I removed the debris, but the door requires extreme pressure to open to permit the dirt, etc to moved up thru the opening , through the hose, etc. I thught maybe that somehow tg

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

When vacuuming carpet with the electric power brush it will ocassionly , go to zero suction mode and shut off the brush. I have tried to cause it to happen by playing with the joint areas ( handle to tube and tube to power brush) without sucess. When the problem does occur I just turn the suction back on and power up the brush again at the handle controls.

The suction used to be so intense, the head would **** itself to my floor and hold on...now, hardly any suction at all.

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,
