Where you put your hand is supposed to ****.are the filters dirty?if so clean them.disconnect the hose completely from the vacuum and see if you can blow through the hose,if you can't blow through the hos then the hose is clogged.you can run a garden hose through it and turn on the water and clean it out.but be sure to let it dry ovr night before using it otherwise the dirt will cling to the hose and clog up again.please leave feedback
You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.

The vacuum does not **** in dirt. It is blowing air instead. Yet when I disconnect the vacuum from the cannister, the suction seems very strong. I took it to a vacuum repairman, and he said that Kenmore sucks and I might as well get rid of it. (He wanted to sell me another one) It is 10 years old, but if I can fix it I would like to try.

Hello, we have a Miele cat and dog turbo 5000 vacuum cleaner which we bought in December. It has just started blowing air out of the grid on the top of the cleaner instead of sucking from the tube. The whole top section which is opened to change the bags doesn't seem to want to clip down properly either. Do you have any ideas> I'm gutted as it was so good until this happened. Thanks Michelle.


The lid not closing properly is almost certainly the cause of your problem. Without that lid sealed tight to the body you will get no suction through the hose. So, the question is: why isn't the lid clipping down properly? Did you just change the bag ... Vacuums

Hi all---I have a Dirt Devil 091020V. there was a problem with the wand where it was the only thing sucking even when it was stuck in the tube it would ****--but nothing from the vacuum end--the diverter was stuck closed I took it apart and found something stuck but in the meantime the torsion spring [I think} fell out and I don't know where it goes--so now only the vacuum works --not the overhead cleaner part.. is there a digram somewhere that can tell me where it goes--I think it might b

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum...

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
