No suction DC24 all floors machine
« on: April 30, 2016, 04:29:06 PM »
Any advice, no suction whatsoever. Washed out filters and good clean out overall and still nothing. Advice would be appreciated. Thanks

No suction at the head or the wand?

For three to be no suction at all always start at the simplest things... Make sure you check every pipe and every join for a blockage ;)

Have you checked the pipe thing that comes off on the left hand side if you're looking on at it?

I'd take the bin off and wash the cyclone in the bath with very hot water and soap to get all the crap out, that might be blocked.
That's how I clean mine, just give it a day and night to dry and it'll be alright ;)

You have taken off the cleaner head and looked there where the tube goes into the machine?

Next would be to remove the small concertina side pipe as they block up there. 

If no suction from the wand, there is a perspex wheel that operates a changeover valve that activates when you lift off the wand. Make sure it is operating and clean the moving bits of that mechanism and lubricate it with something like dashboard shine or Mr Sheen.

It all looks ok but will lubricate the wheel and see if this helps, thank you

Lets start with the basics: Run the machine, remove the cyclone, is there suction at the chassis hole?
