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. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?


This vaccuum has a Fan Blade inside connected to the motor that spins to create the suction you feel. After a few years of use (and misuse) the blades on this (plastic) fan will be broken off, thus damaging the unit. These Fans are replaceable if yo ... Vacuums

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

SEBO vacuum cleaner makes a strange noise and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Suction not working when tube is attached, but works with hand-held portion only. Indicator light saying bag is full/clogged is on, but we've cleaned out the bag, cut away any fur/strings that were wrapped on the turning portion, and cleaned out the refuse valve. Not sure what else to do. Thanks!

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

Have you checked the floor head? Use a pipe cleaner or twisted metal to carefully and gently see what's in there. It sounds like dirt or something has definately sealed up the main suction channel. ... Vacuums

Hoover Windtunnel My Hoover Windtunnel is 3 years old. It worked great until yesterday when it lost all suction. I have followed the manual to trouble shoot any possible clogs and could find none.

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a

I dropped my battery operated alarm clock: the second hand still works but the alarm doesn't come on at the set time and the hour & minute hands don't "hold" their position - I took the clear front off and discovered that I could move the hands to a more secure place on the center spindle but I discovered during the night that the correct time was no longer showing.

Blue Moon S658 Miele vacuum problem where suction cuts off. The power light stays on. Sometimes I lose full suction, and other times I just lose partial suction. This shows on the handle by going from 1000 to 400, or nothing. Any thoughts on what this could be?

If I pick it up to look inside...the brush is spinning fast..I put it down on the floor...the head does not spin at all. 2. The suction power has dropped significantly. The suction used to be so intense, the head would **** itself to my floor and hold on...now, hardly any suction at all.

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 checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. 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. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet


Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn't blocked as well. ... Vacuums

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!!!!

Hi! I'm interested in purchasing a G3 model ; however , the seller says that the machine was working perfectly and then when switching power on a while later , the machine was " dead " . Other than the brushes , power switch or lead , is there perhaps a fuse at all which could possibly have burned out ? Thanks .

Hi -- I have a Kirby Sentria and it is great except that I am getting no suction at all through the big silver power head. Suction through all the other attachments works well. I haev tried it with the roller belt on and off, and that doesn't seem to make a difference. Am I missing something?? Thanks!


You can take off the power head and look in that whole where the belt is and see if there is a paper towel or something in there clogging it up. Also tug on the belt and make sure it is tight - because if it is loose it is broken and you ... Kirby Vacuums

Suction? Hi there, when I turn the vacuum on and place my hand under the roller brush, there is very little suction. Could something be wrong?


You won't feel a great deal of suction like you tried to do it. But look at the fan, if it isn't worn down, and the bag fills with air when you turn it on, then the suction should be ok. If you haven't changed your belt in awhile, I am sure that it ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
