Having problems with your Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
No good suction!
\015 My vacuum sort of lost its suction-power. I have checked the belt and it is functioning (so the underside wheel works), and there is no obvious blockage in the tubing. Should I take it apart inside near engine?\015
The belt may appear to be in working order, but your problem is - it is time to change the belt. Once you replace it with a new one and enusre all area are clean and connected propperly, the vacuum should work fine

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!
