Having problems with your Eureka 12 Amp Capture Vacuum Upright Vacuum ?

How do I change the setting on the capture bagless vacuum from hose to floor?


Answers :

-Pull out your hose from the hose port, and it should be ready to go. If it is not sucking, then perhaps you have an obstruction in you hose. On the back of the cleaner where the hose attaches, you can squeeze the two tabs and the hose will release and you can check it for clogs. One easy way to tell, run the machine with the hose plugged in the hose port. Listen to the sound then take out the hose and listen. If there is a sound of release of air that is significant, then you have a clog in your lower duct hose(the hose that comes out of the lower half of the vacuum. You can usually remove this type of blockage from the underneath where the roller brush is, fairly easily. If it is in your hose, then you can try shaking it out. Sometimes you can see the clog and remove it easily. I am not sure if this was your problem I think maybe it is because there is not anything special to use the hose attachment.

My new Kenmoore Powermate 116 canister has poor suction. I have no pets and light dust. Its not picking up small particles on the wood floor with the floor attachment. When I put my hand to the suction it feels weak. Cleared hose and changed bag. Using again, same issues. This should not be happening with a new vacuum. Is it a bad design in the elbow joint of the hose? I want to return this!!!!


First of all disassemble the handle and hose as much as possible and examine the inside. Make sure there is not any significant debris lodged in the hose somewhere like a plastic bag or something.\015\012\015\012Also check at the top of t ...

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function. We have removed the back panel to see if there was an obstruction but it was clear. We have changed the bag and the small filter (not the HEPA filter) all to no avail. What else can we do? We are desperate to use our vacu

My eureka optima upright bagless vaccum has VERY low suction using the floor part. the hose has excellent suction. i removed the little translucent door underneath and there were no blockages, i cleaned the brushroll thoroughly and that hasnt helped either. i know this probably isnt recommended but i turned it on to the floor setting with the brushroll off and stuck my fingers up the intake as far as i could, the suction was good further up but it just seems to stop down at the base. because i s
