No suction I've only had my vacuum for a couple of months and it seem I have a similar problem but there is no clear blockage. It seems like I don't have adequate suction that reaches the accessory hoses nor the main one. I'm not sure where to start. I've taken the darn thing apart but I can't see any obvious malfunction. Any suggestions?

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear and no blockages. Is it the belt I don't think it is. or motor ? Grateful for any advice.
It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.Jim ... Vacuums
My sebo 1.1 has a red light flashing, indicating bag needs emptied or clog. There is plenty suction with the hose attachments, and I cannot see any blockages in hoses etc. Some of the dirt seems to be collecting in the small flap in the base of the hoover.

DC25 telescoping handle does not seat tightly. When pulling the vac back it unseats about 2 inches. This prevents the hose from engaging securely in the base and suction is affected. Do I need to replace the clear wand release catch? I've only had the vac about a year and am surprised it would wear out so quickly.

My dyson has two gears as it were! One for normal suction and the other for deeper cleaning. There used to be a real difference in the performance between the two options, also the noise changed when you swithched from one to the other. This no longer occurs. I have taken it apart according to your instruction, cleaned all the various bits but still no luck. The cat fur is still clearly visible despite my best efforts. Can you please help!!!!

The hose has no suction and shrinks up so that it can't even be put back on the vacuum w/o turning it off. I have checked everything that I can think of and don't see any blockage anywhere. I washed the filter about one month ago and I clear it at least once a week.
Just happened to me. Took everything apart. No blockage in the flexable tubing or connections then I looked down the hard, telescoping tube and saw that it was occluded. Everything's fine and dandy now. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hoover z400 I accidentally vacuumed a fairly large object through the hose attachment. Suction is now limited and I do not know how to clear the hose (obviously at the base).
Take off thebottom plate and brush roll, then you can check the inlet from the bottom. If it is clear, then it is probably in the hose. Remove the hose and try to fish it out. ... 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?

No suction. I have followed the detachable parts no suction. I have followed the detachable parts and it seems to have suction through to the base but doesn't pick up anything significant. I have looked through the hose connecting the base but I can not see anything obstructing it.
Poor suction can be caused by obstructions, poor air flow or a compomise in the air flow (hole in the hose). Since you have started with that I would next look at all filters and clean them. First check for suction at the motor, then at accessory hos ... Vacuums
I have an older model fantom vacuum (model TH56SK 00) that I was given without the manual. It is whistling and stamped on top is "whistle = blockage check manual" which of course I can't do, but I need to find and clear the blockage. I need to clear the blockage now, but would like to obtain the manual for future issues.
Bissell 2x has suction coming out of the "base" part(when I put my had over the rubber ring that leads from base to the handle part there's suction), but there's no suction coming out of the hose. I'm not certain if there's a clog, 'cause I can't get the hose off.

My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction. We have cleaned both filters, checked for blockage in all hoses & cleaned the beater bar brush. All to no avail. Is it the motor? Or is there a blockage deep in the vac somewhere? We're debating repair versus buying a new one. Hope you can help. Thanks.
