Why does my vacuum have Low Suction?

Why does my vacuum have Low Suction?

There are a few things that might cause your vacuum to have low suctions. Please try the below steps:

First, check to see if the brush roll is spinning on the unit. You can tilt the vacuum to the side during use by locking in an upright position and rotating the unit down until the handle touches the floor. If it is not spinning, turn the vacuum off and unplug from the wall. Try turning the brush roll by hand. If it is stuck, make sure there is no debris or hair clogging the brush roll. If the brush roll turns freely, the belt may need to be replaced. Most vacuum cleaners have belts that require replacing after extended use.

Second, check the filter to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced. Using the vacuum without a filter will cause serious damage to the internal components of the unit.

Third, check the hoses for clogs. You can do this by locating the connection points of the hose to the vacuum. To find large clogs, try to compress the hose and look for any areas in the hose that will not compress.  Sometimes, dirt or hair will get built up in these hoses. You can sometimes shake the debris free or use a dull object to dislodge the debris.
