Having problems with your Broan-NuTone CV350 Performance Bagged Central System Vacuum ?
My NuTone built in central vacuum is putting dirt out instead of picking it up. We have just changed the bag.
From the information here, it sounds like you do not have any suction. If this happened at the same time you replaced the bag, I'm guessing that the unit did not seal when you put it back together. Make sure the bag is seated like it should be and the cover that you removed to replace the bag is sealed and locked into place. An easy way to check this would be to remove the inlet side tubing from the machine and check the suction there. If the unit has a utility valve, be sure that it is closed. You should have good suction there unless the bag cover part of the canister is not sealing onto the rest of the unit, or the fan assembly is damaged. The latter of which is pretty rare, and it would probably make a good bit of noise. If you have good suction at the unit, then you either have a clog or an open pipe somewhere. I hope this helps. Please comment with more details if it doesn't. Good Luck!

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums
Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

How do i change the filter in a Fasco Model 851 central vacuum system? the existing filter bag is cloth.

Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.
The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu

My new Kenmoore Powermate 116 canister has poor suction. I have no pets and light dust. Its not picking up small particles on the wood floor with the floor attachment. When I put my hand to the suction it feels weak. Cleared hose and changed bag. Using again, same issues. This should not be happening with a new vacuum. Is it a bad design in the elbow joint of the hose? I want to return this!!!!
