Having problems with your Electrolux Pu3650 Central System Vacuum ?

What do I do when there is no suction. My central vac just stopped picking up and though I emptied the machine and replaced the filter there continues to be no suction.

1. If 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. Please don't try to take it apart to remove the clog. If you can't get it out, take it to a reputable vacuum repair shop and let them.
\015\012best way to clear an obstruction is to blow it out by attaching the wall end to the exhaust of a shop vacuum, or using an air compressor.
You can try holding the wand end of the hose directly to the CV in port and turning the machine on. This provides essentially the same action as the previous method.
If neither of these work, try a combination of the two. Or using a shop vac, hold the wall end to the exhaust of the vacuum and the wand end to the in port of the shop vac. Turn shop vac on and the obstruction should come out.
Borrow a good strong shop vacuum if you need to.
If these methods fail, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store and have the service tech try to clear it. Care must always be taken when trying to clear an obstuction with a long object, especially if it's pointed. I've seen many hoses that have shorted out and even caught fire due to the wiring accidentally being "nicked
\015\0123. Is 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 have a Kenmore central vacuum cleaner model number c107 34601. We have emptied the bucket and shaken the filter out to clean it. There is a filter that is filthy so we shook it out into a bag but the cleaner still seems to not have great suction. I notice there is a similar cap to the outlets I plug the central vac hose into on the unit itself that doesn't power the nozzle when used. 1 - what is this for? 2 - Should I somehow remove the entire filter and if so - can you tell me step by step ho

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing.

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out.

The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

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.

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty.
