I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn't seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn't pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now.

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!


I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was f ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

I have a Dirt Devil Vision and when I put a clean canister back in place the suction at the bottom of the filter clogs up and very rarely go into the canister.

My Dyson DC17 has lost suction on the wand and is not picking up dirt as it should. I have taken the small part at bottom of the machine off to see if there is a blockage--none that I can see. The flexible tube on wand is very tight and won't extend very much. Dyson sent me a new cyclonic part in April but the machine still doesn't seem to be working properly. My serial number is 260-us-d11545. Is there somewhere I can take my Dyson to get it fixed. I'm very frustrated with it. Thank you.

Dyson animal We bought a Dyson Animal from Sears a few years ago along with a service contract. We took it each year to be serviced. One year I took it because it lost it's suction.

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear and no blockages. Is it the belt I don't think it is. or motor ? Grateful for any advice.


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.Jim ... Vacuums

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.

Hello,\015\012\015\012If your vacuum runs but still leaves dirt behind, the culprit could be the drive belt or an obstruction. If the agitator brush slips or won't turn, the belt is bad and needs to be replaced. If suction is weak when yo ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I am also noticing that there is air being blown out of sides where the dirty water container is. (don't recall that in the past).

The vacuum does not **** in dirt. It is blowing air instead. Yet when I disconnect the vacuum from the cannister, the suction seems very strong. I took it to a vacuum repairman, and he said that Kenmore sucks and I might as well get rid of it. (He wanted to sell me another one) It is 10 years old, but if I can fix it I would like to try.
