Having problems with your Hoover F5826-900 SteamVac Upright Wet Washer ?

Stair attachment has weak suction

\015 How can I get more suction on the stair attachment? It used to work just fine.Thanks,Roxann\015

Answers :

Did you put the duct in for the hose? It goes in front of the tank, take out the duct (#3)that is there and put in the duct that is on the end of the hose. Is there a slit somewhere in the hose, if so you will loose suction.

My DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum has a small attachment for vacuuming carpeted stairs. This attachment is currently not spinning its internal brush necessary to pickup the dirt on the stairs. The rest of the vaccum is working fine. The suction cap on this attachment is pulled out, as it should be. I have checked the vacuum over thoroguhly and there are no bloackages anywhere.


Make sure to extend the wand straight up and completely out of the handle and watch that you don't kink the hose. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My new Kenmoore Powermate 116 canister has poor suction. I have no pets and light dust. Its not picking up small particles on the wood floor with the floor attachment. When I put my hand to the suction it feels weak. Cleared hose and changed bag. Using again, same issues. This should not be happening with a new vacuum. Is it a bad design in the elbow joint of the hose? I want to return this!!!!


First of all disassemble the handle and hose as much as possible and examine the inside. Make sure there is not any significant debris lodged in the hose somewhere like a plastic bag or something.\015\012\015\012Also check at the top of t ...

My brushes on my hoover streamvac will not rotate. I removed and cleaned assuring that the filter was also cleaned. The only different thing I have done is to insert the upholstery attachment and removed it after use (didn't work so well) suction seemed weak. I am also noticing that there is air being blown out of sides where the dirty water container is. (don't recall that in the past).

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through.

The vacuum has suction but the floor attachment does not. I have cleaned the clogs from the attachments and it still has no suction. What is wrong?

Poor suction...continued Wow, thanks for answering so quickly! To answer your question, yes, there is suction at the screen, but it is very weak. I keep that screen clean. As a side note, I noticed that when I remove the top clear plastic cover (that would be part # 37 on the diagram, as far as I can tell) there is decent suction coming from the intake there--part 36? 30? it's hard to tell. But with the cover on, I feel no suction (from where it sucks up the water directly from the carpet),

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!

No suction My vacuum does not seem to have much suction when in use. The agitator brush is rotating but I'm not able to get much off the carpet. The suction is fine when I use the attached wand.
