Is a hose unplugged? Unplug the devise and see if you can find anything that looks like it's not connected OR it has a hole in the hose.

Remove the filter / bag from the compartment, close the cover and briefly turn on the vacuum - is there suction? If so, check that the bag isn't already full / or replace with a new bag. Make sure it the bag is not being pinched / caught under the cover.

If no suction, look closely at the edge of the filter / bag compartment opening of the vacuum. There should be a gasket that the cover presses against to help ensure a good seal. If this gasket is missing, cut, has an object lodged on it or is otherwise damaged - it may be preventing proper sealing of the door; allowing air to be pulled through the gap in the seal - and responsible for the loss of suction at the hose.

Runs but no suction. Something is clogging airway inside the machine


If the bag is not full, filter is not plugged, bag area is sealed tightly, then likely something is caught inside and plugging the hose or the intake tubing.

Eureka Smart Vac The Boss no suction from either setting. I have taken it apart trying to see if it was clogged but it isn't. Checked the hose it is not sliced.


Remove the bag cover and feel for suction above the motor. If their is suction there then check the bag compartment is sealed. You can drop a coin down the hose to check for blockages all the way to where the bag attaches.

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do...


Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more if I knew the make and model. Chris

I have a canister vacuum. I replaced the bag and now can otn get a good suction. Could it be the rubber seal near the bag?


The case that encloses the bag may not have been closed properly, or a part of the bag got caught in the seal of the case. Take the bag out and reinstall. Hope this helps!

My vaccuum has no more suction


There is no drive belt on a progressive drive vacuum. It is direct drive meaning it is attached via the motor. No vacuum means no air flow somewhere in the unit. Torn bag,Wrong bag, pluged filter under bag.Make sure the opening in the bag is the correct size,too big and it will not seal. Make sure when you close the housing it seals also. No housing seal no vacuum. Kenmore vacuums tend to be plastic housings. Cracks are comon in the wheel housing area. Check there first. Plastic expoxy will work with this fix if so needed.

The suction on the Kirby Ultimate g is very weak


you probably have a small leak somewhere. it doesn't take much to lose suction. make sure everything is sealed between the vac and bag and make sure there's not a small hole in the bag. the impeller should be alright unless, you've vacuumed up something very hard like a small
coin or something.if the impeller becomes cracked , it will have to be replaced.

Lost suction after I changed the bag and cleaned the air filter


The bag has a cardboard collar with latex. It must seal over the inlet. Make sure not to tear the bag when replacing.

Is the cover closing properly? The cover seals against a gasket. The same with the filter.

My NuTone built in central vacuum is putting dirt out instead of picking it up. We have just changed the bag.


From the information here, it sounds like you do not have any suction. If this happened at the same time you replaced the bag, I'm guessing that the unit did not seal when you put it back together. Make sure the bag is seated like it should be and the cover that you removed to replace the bag is sealed and locked into place. An easy way to check this would be to remove the inlet side tubing from the machine and check the suction there. If the unit has a utility valve, be sure that it is closed. You should have good suction there unless the bag cover part of the canister is not sealing onto the rest of the unit, or the fan assembly is damaged. The latter of which is pretty rare, and it would probably make a good bit of noise. If you have good suction at the unit, then you either have a clog or an open pipe somewhere. I hope this helps. Please comment with more details if it doesn't. Good Luck!
