Having problems with your Hoover U5780900 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Low suction when using attachments
\015 I have a wind tunnel+cyclonic There are several areas where it gets clogged up and it doesn't seem to whirl around like it did when I first bought is (March 2008) I clean it out often, even before it gets to the full line. Also, when I use the attachment hose, there is hardly any suction. There was not a operation manual in the box when we bought it. Can you help?!\015
Have you cleaned the foam filter? located above the dirt tank after you remove it. the manual can be downloaded from the web site at www.hoover.com ; sounds like an obstruction in the hose or elbow on the back of the unit. the hose can be cleared with a broom hadle when you take the hose completely off the vac.

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

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

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.

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced
