Having problems with your Nilfisk Family Vac Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
Low suction on Nilfisk King
\015 I have a Nilfisk King 340 (?) approx 6yrs old with decreased suction. I also noticed the unit seems to get quite hot. The suction problem has been there for maybe a couple of weeks? We thought it was because we had never changed the HEPA filter (I know, the wrong thing to do!), but we changed it yesterday, and still low suction. What do we do? \015

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

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
