Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind Litespeed 5840 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
No suction from the bottom
\015 My vacuum is only a few years old and suddenly it's not sucking from the bottom. Simple lint from the carpet or any debris it used to **** up is being passed over. The beater bar DOES spin. Thank you for the help finding out how to open it. The attachment hose sucks fine, but when trying to push it as an upright, I get nothing and after a minute or so I smell something. I don't think it's the smell of burning rubber, but it smells warm and maybe just a dust smell. The belt doesn't look frayed at all and the beater bar spins fast and smoothly. There's only a small distance of hose from the beater bar to the point where the attachment hose detaches and there's nothing clogging it. Our Hepa filer is a little banged up and needs replacing, but that alone couldn't cause a lack of suction, could it? I don't appreciate hauling my 18-year-old Hoover Elite from the basement every time I need to vacuum. Help soon!\015
Hello the hose on the bottom of the unit is clogged with debris, try taking a straighten hanger of some sort, and stick into the entry hole on the bottom of the vac, to remove debris sometime paper and other forgein objects get caught in the vacuum hose and cause poor suction.

Suction Problem I took my unit to my work and used it, when I returned home it wouldn't suck up anything. I took the recovery take out and it has inward suction. Shouldn't that be outward, so it goes into the tank? It also blows out of the bottom by the brushes. I check the filter in the bottom and that is fine. Is it possible that it is somehow reversed the direction of the air flow (rotor running backwards)? I am perplexed. What am I missing?
There is a stand pipe seal where the bucket sits on, and if it isn't there or out of place could cause a suction problem like you said yours is doing. In the picture it is #10. The motor seal may have gone bad and is leaking # 15.\015\012 ... Hoover F7220900 SteamVac V2 Upright Vacuum
Lost suction my DCO7 lost suction in the hose I started taking it apart and cleaning it and looking for clogs (probably more than I should have) and when I put it back together it has awesome suction in the hose but no suction in the base. It just pulls the pine needles up (christmas tree) but they never appear in the "bag" compartment and when I look they are just all gathered in a clump in the bottom by the brush.

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

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 upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking the bottom. It sometimes makes a very loud noise when I try to vacuum. If I press the intell clean on and off yellow button the noise may go away but it still does not work.
Double check hose placement, making sure you have the hose inserted into the correct slot. The long attachment nozzle stores in the front hole on the right, and the sucking hose inserts into the rear hole on the right. I know this is too simple of a ... Vacuums

My Bissell ProHeat 2x is pouring water out of the bottom anytime it's turned on. I had it in the shop for no water, took it back again for the same problem, took it back again because it had no suction, finally took it apart and found the problem with the suction and fixed it myself. Worked fine for a day and now it is constantly leaking water, if it's turned on, and is useless for anything except for making a mess.
Took the unit apart and discovered my heater had small pinholes in the metal and they had put in silicone, instead of a gasket, which didn't seal. So much for the place I took it to "saving" my heater for me. I repaired it myself by getting a few o ... Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum
I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn't seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits.
