... Eureka Capture Upright Vacuum Vacuum

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin.

I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog.

My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction.
