Low suction My 2001 machine is has low suction. The motor sounds fine what could this be?

Is the suction low at the tank after you disconnect the hose? If it is strong there, then the hose may be clogged. You can unhook the hose from the wands to see if you have suction or not. If you do, then look further down all the way to the brush ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Low suction Have a Powr-Flite PF 18, suction is good at motor, but low at where hose comes out of top of vacuum. Could new lid seals help the problem? Where can I get new seals for this model. Also my zip is 98801 and my shop is not listed, could you add it please? Sew Creative 1139 N. Princeton Wenatchee, Wa 98801 509-663-5516 Thanks, Lauren-Sew Creative

Replacing the motor cover solved the problem, it must have been warped and was letting suction out thru it. ... Vacuums

My Dyson DC14 Animal doesn't have the suction it used to. The piece in the back on the bottom - a flap it appears - stays open now, causing the machine to make a louder noise than usual. At first, if I put my hand on the flap opening it would close, allowing for normal suction. Now, it stays "open" permanently", causing the loss of suction.

I have any easy-flo built-in vacuum. I recently had the bearings on the motor, top and bottom replaced. I put the vacuum back together and it mow has low suction power. There is plenty of suction on the side of the canister where the rigid tubing meets the canister body but little suction at the wall plates. Any ideas? Roger

There is either a blockage or a pipe is open somewhere. You should check the system at the wall valve without the hose to determine if the pipes are blocked or if perhaps the hose is plugged. If one of the wall valves is damaged or open, this will af ... Vacuums

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

Motor sounds loud and high pitched. Suction seem ok, can't find any blockages. Cleaned filter at top of removable canister. Exhaust seems hot and low. Can there be a blockage within the motor housing?

Most likely your bearings are shot. it will need a new motor ... Kenmore Vacuums

I bought a Kenmore canister vacuum, model 116, in April 2007. This morning, the sound of the motor suddenly began to deepen, and I began to lose suction. Normally, if something is clogging the hose, the motor will wind up to a higher pitch, not a lower one. The filters are clean, the bag is empty, and I can't detect anything lodged in the hose. If this were a car's engine, I would say it's "lugging down". Any pointers?

Okay, bear with me. Is it possible you have a suction adjustment, dial somewhere on vac. Check and see and if it does, be sure it's all the way up. Also, try removing hose and run a broom handle fr. one end to the other...BUT be careful not to stretc ... Vacuums

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

I have an Electrolux Commercial Upright vacuum Model U129C. It has a device which turns off the motor driving the beater bar if something gets stuck in it. There is a simple reset button to restart the beater after clearing the obstruction. Just recently on flat dense low pile surfaces the switch cuts in after just a few seconds and turns the beater bar off. This doesn't happen on high pile carpet but the motor doesn't quite sound normal. There is no obstruction - the beater bar can spin freely

The motor is having a problem.There might be two reasons...either the coils inside it got heated up which will be needing rewinding or you can buy a new motor or there r capacitors attached sometimes u can make a check on that also if that's gone Kap ... Vacuums

I have a Rainbow E2 series, 23, for about 3 years. It has now a different and very aloud sound coming fron around the motor and also I feel it is not suctioning with the same power. If I close the hose like closing totally the suction entrance, the sound comes normally. I will appreciate if some one can tell me what to do, becouse there is not a Dealer in my Contry any more. Thank You. Pierre Chabaneix - Lima-Peru [email protected]

Hi there, Pierre!\015\012Sorry, but I think this is bad news. From your description, I suspect that a motor bearing has failed. The only way to fix it is to replace the motor, and without a dealer in your country, that could be a big problem.\015\012 ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Dry vac will **** water normally, than the motor makes a higher pitched sound and stops suction. Does this have anything to do with the filter si since it is in bad shape and hasn't been replaced?

No it usually means that the vac is full and the ball then floats up and blocks the vac so that water doesn't get sprayed everywhere. ... Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum

Kirby G4 motor is very loud. It has suction but seams to be a lot louder than when we bought it in 1996.

Hi There,\015\012\015\012Most likely it's just the fan that is making the noise rather then the motor. The way the Kirby vacuums are designed, anything hard that's vacuumed up such a coin, or other hard things can break the fan.\ ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.

There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums

Powerhead woes Drive belt for power head beater brush on Hoover S3755 keeps jumping off drive motor shaft when vacuuming low pile carpets like oriental rugs unless minimal suction is used. Any tricks to keeping the belt in place other than this?

I have a Eureka Boss Model 411... I need to know where the reset button is for the suction motor. The canister was clogged on the backside, I didn't see it and the suction motor shut off. I have cleared the obstruction, but don't know where the reset is for that motor. I know how to reset the brush head motor.

If your vacuum motor overheats, it will stop working. it will start working again once it cools. ... Eureka 411A Upright Vacuum

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 filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. 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

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. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor
