Having problems with your Electrolux Central Vacuum ?

My rather old cannister vac has something clogging the hose. Any ideas on how to clean it out ?


Answers :

Attach hose to exhaust port of canister. Switch on. That may be enough to blow out the clog. If not, place wand end of hose to intake of vacuum so you have both ends "attached to the vacuum. This should do it. If not, you might try using something with greater suction. Like taking it a nearby carwash and using a vacuum there. Try placing "wand end" of hose to other hose first and turn in. Then the other end.
\015\012You can try pushing a long length of PVC or similar pipe through. No jamming. Care needs to be taken when doing this as it may cram the clog tighter,
\015\012If the hose is rather old as well, it may be a good idea to simply replace it. It likely has multiple leaks and great loss of suction.

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through.

Its for a central vac system. I have very low suction power. I've emptied the dirt trap. It seems the fan is working ok, so I guess theres a clog somewhere but I have no idea how to find and fix it. I have no manual on the unit as it was in the house when we bought it. I'd guess its same age as house (19 years old). Any advice would be graetly appreciated!


Usually, low suction would indicate access ports allowing air to enter the system. Easy to test system however. Test vacuum first. Remove intake hose to vacuum ( at the vacuum canister ) and place your hand over intake. You should feel considerab ... Vacuums

Have a Eureka Power Plus 12.0 Amps Model 4702 Type A 120 volts and 60 HZ that there is something wrong that it isn't picking up right and you can actually feel the air coming out of it near where the bagless canister attaches.

My 2001 miele stopped working Black cannister. I believe cleaning ladies overheated it as the bag was very full and the vac felt warm to touch. I replaced bag and let cool down but it will not start. This has happened before and the vac store said they replaced the cord because it tends to go when it over heats. I have not taken in for and estimate but I fugure it will be at least $150 to repair. Is the another option.

However, when I place my hand under the hose, it has good suction, then when I try to pull in a small particle, it doesn't, unless I have the hose nozzle completely over the particle.
