Having problems with your Electrolux Central Vacuum ?

I have an older model Electrolux central vac. When I put the hose into the wall outlet, the cannister comes on but there is no suction ? What is needed to correct this?

Answers :

Three things are the most likely.
\015\0121. Since it's an older model, the hose is likely well worn and probably has leaks at each end where it attaches to the handle and connector at the other end. If this is the case, a new hose is needed.
\015\0122. A blockage in the hose. To check the hose for blockages, detach both ends and drop a coin down one end. Lift the hose a little at a time so coin drops out the other end. If it doesn't, there's a clog. It will probably need to unclogged at an authorized Aerus Electrolux store.
\015\0123. A dirty filter. This is probably the first thing to check for, since it's so easy. If it's dirty, it needs to be thoroughly rinsed under warm water. Then allowed to thoroughly air dry prior to use. For this reason, it's highly recommended that an ECV owner have an extra filter on hand.
\015\012Is there suction at the end of the hose, or is it just at the power nozzle there's none. If the hose has good suction, check the power nozzle airway. If it's blocked it can easily be cleared by pushing the clog back toward the brush with the handle of a wooden spoon, or other similar object.

I built a new house nearly a year ago but didn't move in until recently. The Nutone central vacum system doesn't have much suction. I've tried different things but am afraid there is a break or breaks in the system. My question is how can breaks or joints that come a part in the suction system be located so I will know where to cut into the wall.

Poor suction We bought a model home about 11 years ago and it had the Cental M&S Cyclonic Cleaning system. The suction has steadily been weakening. Now it is almost non-existant. I clean the filter bag in the main unit, but how clean does it need to be. Could there be a clog in the wall lines. If yes, how does one unclogg them. Thank you. I liked the system and would hate to just give up on it. Jean

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck.

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters. I noticed when I turn it on, there is a valve on the top of the cannister that opens and you can feel suction from the vent hole.
