Having problems with your Fantom Vacums XT450K Upright Vacuum ?
Vacuum is whistling and there is no suction through the hose.
\015 I own one of the first Fantom Vacuums that came out. I am having trouble with the vacuum whistling and there is no suction. Can someone help me on what to do? I cannot find my manual. Thank you.\015
Sometimes mine "wand" has no suction too. . . Make sure the vacumn column is clicked into the "standing" position, don't have it at an angle. Also you may have to play with the settings on the bottom part AND the power button together. I think this vacumn sucks (pardon the pun) mine turns off after 10 minutes of use, then I let it sit for an hour and then it'll start again. POS!

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake.

No suction vacuum won't pick up -- I've checked the bag, hose...and it seems to have no sucking power. The internal hose may be jammed (I vacuumed up a lot of shredded paper), but nothing as far as I can stick in fingers in. I don't have a metal coat hanger to slip down, but I'm afraid that might tear the hose and then the darn thing won't work anyway. :o(

It has no suction. It was fine yesterday. I washed the dirt container and the filter, let it dry and put it back in the vacuum. Today my vacuum isnt picking up any dirt and has no suction. When I took the hose out of the back, it started blowing dust and dirt out but still no suction.

My Infinity Shark vacuum has lost suction. The pitch sound changes very soon after turning it on. I believe the lower hose is clogged, and I cannot get the body cove unattached where the hose bends upwards into the chamber. So much for their claim of never losing suction!
I have full suction with the hose and when the brush is off of the vacuum. However, in the vacuuming position, there isn't enough suction to pick anything up. I checked for clogs and cleaned all the filters.
