Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?
No suction on Roomba 560
\015 Roomba 560 suddenly has no suction. Was working perfectly, all brushes working properly, but not picking up larger debris. Any way to check the suction on fix?\015
Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module.\015\012\015\012If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.
Fan is spinning but nothing makes it into the fine dust bin like when it was new. The big stuff gets into the large item bin because of the brushes. All the fine dust accumulates around the rubber strip. Does someone make a stronger Fan for these units?

No suction Hi i have a red roomba, and it has no suction anymore.
Roomba does much of its cleaning by the brush and roller on the bottom, but an important part is the little fan at the back of the debris bin which provides 100% of the 'suction.'\015\012\015\012First, take off the vent cover on the back of the ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Remove the dust bin and disassemble it clean out all lint and dust that could stop the impeller from turning. Once it is cleaned out test the fan motor with a powersupply on the terminals to see if the fan turns. If it does not, then replace the fan ... iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
Suction, after cleaning every part/filter, is virtually non-existant, other than the motor (which works very well) when reassembled various times, I get a big 0 for performance. PO'd in Tx. DC-07 seemes to be a waste of my $$$$.
Hi,Did you dry the filter for 12 hours before reinstalling and giving a go? Most suction problems are from a blockage of some kind. The Dyson website seems to think it's the filter.Here is a website which has instructions on washin ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My dyson DC17 will not turn on unless the handle is pulled back.(into the vacuuming position) The attachment hose will not work at all (0 suction thru it). I've checked the hose and made sure there is no obstruction. Any ideas?
Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar. It is normal that the brush motor works only when the handle is pulled back in the vacuuming position - that's the way it's made. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Roomba Discovery My Roomba turns on and moves but the brushes won't turn. Someone told me that I had forgotten to put in the yellow and black end bearings, but I did. Help, I miss my Roomba I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it's brushes cleaning "please clean Roombas brushes" So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)
I read somewhere that you need to clear the software in case there is a glitch. To do this, take the battery out and then, simultaneously hold down the "spot" and "clean" buttons for 30 seconds. Replace battery. This has worked for my Discovery model ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated
1, Does the blower (discharge) side blow bunches of air??Yes: Something is clogged from the bag to the hose end. Try blowing out the hose from the discharge side.Or: The bag is not properly seated. Make sure that the plastic piece is ... Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum
No suction I am getting no suction on my central vac at the vac. I do not believe that the piping is plugged up, the vacuum is not creating suction. What are the causes of no suction at the vacuum and how do I take the top half of the Nutone central vac off?
Use the guide at builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html to find the issue and solution. Most likely you need to test it without any filter and be sure the bottom of the unit is attached :) To get access to the motors you need to unbolt the very top sides. ...

The roller is working/spinning, but no suction..picks up nothing, I have cleaned and rechecked all filters and can not figure out why I suddenly have no suction.

Lost suction my DCO7 lost suction in the hose I started taking it apart and cleaning it and looking for clogs (probably more than I should have) and when I put it back together it has awesome suction in the hose but no suction in the base. It just pulls the pine needles up (christmas tree) but they never appear in the "bag" compartment and when I look they are just all gathered in a clump in the bottom by the brush.

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),
Wish I had it in my shop, it is hard to figure your problem. I do know that you must have something out of place and you may have to take it apart to find it. You may feel some suction there at the top of the clear nozzle, but maybe it isn't strong ... Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum
Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5
Dave you are correct. You should never over-charge anything like a Roomba, Cel Phone, etc. That will kill a bettery very quickly. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
Suction Cover The suction cover of my Eureka Deep Steam 2575A is broken - the tabs snapped off of the cover so I am unable to screw the suction cover back on. I need to purchase a new suction cover but can't find one anywhere. Anyone know what I can do? thanks

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
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!
I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was f ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
No Suction I get great suction in the hose, but when I plug the hose back into the unit, there is no suction and the air flow indicator line goes completely red. I've changed the bag and filters. I took the small panel off the back and made sure there is no clog, and took the hose off to make sure there was no clog there. Still no suction. Please help.

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.
If the belt is stretched, then it can't turn the brush rol under load, if you haven't chenged it in the last 6 months, then I would put a new one one. Also check the dirt inlet by the brush roll for a blockage. ... Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum
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. Then I noticed that when I remove the dirt collection cup and held my hand over the vent the suction is fine and strong. So... I replaced the hepa filter thinking that might be the problem. That didnt' work. The motor runs fine. The suction without the dirt cup inserted is strong. As soon as you insert
Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
Roomba discovery My roomba comes off the charger and will go about a minute and a half. Then it will stop and beep once. i checked roombas sight and they said that the brushed need to be cleaned. I cleaned the brushes 6 times. It still does the same thing. I bought it from you in November of 2007. Should I bring it back to your service department?

Low suction My old rainbow seized up. I purchased another one on e-bay. It works but it has a broken latch on the side and it has low suction. Even when I press down so it is sealed to the water can it doesn't inprove the suction.
\015\012\015\012\015\012With years of use, you will collect a layer of "micro dust" on the impeller (the fan part) which reduces the efficiency. A toothbrush and some mild cleaner with gently scrubbing will restore it's power. \015\012 ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I have any easy-flo built-in vacuum. I recently had the bearings on the motor, top and bottom replaced. I put the vacuum back together and it mow has low suction power. There is plenty of suction on the side of the canister where the rigid tubing meets the canister body but little suction at the wall plates. Any ideas? Roger
There is either a blockage or a pipe is open somewhere. You should check the system at the wall valve without the hose to determine if the pipes are blocked or if perhaps the hose is plugged. If one of the wall valves is damaged or open, this will af ... Vacuums
