Having problems with your Riccar Vacuums ?
I have a Riccar 8000 series.It don;t have any suction
Check to see that the belt is not stretched. You can check this by putting your hand under neath the machine and try to stop the brushroll. If it stops then the belt is stretched. I would also make sure that the clutch is engaged. There is a port on the back of these machines where the hose runs before going to the machine, make sure that the port is closed. The lower tube is easy to pull off if you take the 2 screws in the bottom plate that hold it in. These machines have a lot of suction and can clog with ease.

My Dyson vacuum works fine for cleaning the rug but the hose doesnt get any suction at all. I removed the hose and all the parts around it that I could and dont see any clogs or broken pieces. I lost my manual so I dont know if this is addressed, or if there is a switch Im not flipping. Gave it a thorough look but found nothing.

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

Hi, if the wand is doing its job very well, you have to have a blockage some where, either in the hose where it attaches to the bottom of the unit near the roller section.

My versatility electrolux vacuum is 2 years old and it has lost its suction, i have replaced the filters and checked every hosing area i have access to, it seems to all be clear. I dont know what else to do, it has a higher pitched whinnig sound when it is on
It sounds like the fan blades have worn away until there's basically no air resistance, thus no air flow/suction. The whine is created by the motor turning at a higher speed due to lack of resistance. \015\012The fan wasn't covered by the wa ... Electrolux Vacuums
