Having problems with your Kenmore Whispertone 23312 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

My kenmore hida filter vacuum cleaner no longer has the sucking ability it used to have. It is only 4 years old and has worked extremely well up until this week. The motor is functioning well, as is the carpet brush function.... it just has a very weak suction... Is there any easy way to tell if it is blocked? An ideas of what is going on? thanks


Answers :

Well i've hade one come in a while ago and it didn't have good suction so I looked at the bag it was buljing w/ dirt so I put a new bag in it and it had better sucktion but still not good enough so I cheched the fabrick filter and it was dirty too so I washed it and it had even better sucktion so try the paper filter on the end too and if your vacuum still haves bad sucktion try looking if the hose is clogged buy putting your mouth on the end and blowing through it i recomend whiping the end off befor blowing if hard to blow it is clogged, if clogged i would put something thin like a metal rod or or a stirty stick to push the dirt out i'm sorry if my info didnt work out :D

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.

I have a new STEAM VAC Dual V All Terrain Carpet and Hardwood Cleaner. I have used it once and it worked well. Now, the second time, I have no water return.

My DC17 is only a few months old, but I've already had to clean the filter. Since I reassembled everything, I'm finding chunks of carpet fiber and dog fur on top of the filter inside the filter container. Iam getting slightly less suction from the floor assembly as well. I've checked the hoses, brush, and brushed out the inside of the plastic container, but hasn't helped. Ideas??

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).

When vacuuming carpet with the electric power brush it will ocassionly , go to zero suction mode and shut off the brush. I have tried to cause it to happen by playing with the joint areas ( handle to tube and tube to power brush) without sucess. When the problem does occur I just turn the suction back on and power up the brush again at the handle controls.

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

Hoover Windtunnel U5750-900 Agitator brush is weak. It turns fine if I tilt the vacuum back, but it slows to almost 1/4 speed when it touches carpet, even on the highest carpet setting. I've replaced the agitator belt twice. The brush used to turn powerfully even on the lowest (Hard Floor) setting. Ideas? I should probably lube the agitator brush ball bearings, and re-check the belt, but, other than that, I'm stumped.

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. Primary filter is clean and HEPA filter is replaced. Even when everything is unclogged, suction is weak compared to another unit (same model) that a friend has. Any ideas?

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!

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),

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This is after replacement of the clutch with a new part.

Suction Problem I just borrowed the Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe w/ 5 brush agitator from my neighbor and it worked ok for the first few minutes, although the suction would stop and go. When I had enough water to dump I did it and when I put it back on it no longer sucked the water up from the carpet. She admits to having it for 15 years, but why did it have to break on me. Makes me look as though I did it!
