Vax power pet 1 filter keeps getting clogged up so dirt not going into cylinder
There is one more place that gets blocked badly. Take the cover off of the roller brush on the bottom. The brush sweeps big debris back into the suction hole and blocks the passage. Happy cleaning!

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?

We have had a Dyson DC14 for 5 years. Recently, when I run the vacuum, it whines a high pitch sound. It still maintains a suction and does not seem to have lost any power. I am unaware of anything that was done to change the condition of the vacuum. Concerned what the noise is and if it is damaging the vacuum.

We bought our Kirby less than 5 years ago and lately are not happy with it....it keeps breaking. The warranty has expired and our biggest complaint is that it has lost it's suction power. All the contents stay in the hose when I vacuum out the car or upholstery and it does vacuum well at all. The Kirby store quoted us over $200 to fix/ service it. Apparently this is not covered in the free yearly maintenance which we just had done. Any suggestions?

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene
Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus with Power Brush. Bought it in 2003. I love it, except the Power Brush just lost power so now I can't vacuum the carpets. I believe it is a SEB 212-2 Power Brush. The vacuum (canister) is Black. Any help is appreciated. There is no power to it at all. I've unplugged it, smacked it around a little too (mostly kidding) but still nothing.

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.

We have a Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner and the power in the floor component (rotating brush, etc) is no longer functioning. The vacuum is producing suction, but does not seem to be providing power to the floor component.
