Dyson, Inc Vacuum Parts
The household vacuum is a tireless workhorse in your cleaning arsenal, sucking up dust and debris. However, even models by trusted brands such as Dyson may lose steam after years of use. If your vacuum no longer produces enough suction to pick up dirt, read these tips to fix the most common causes of weak suction.
Replace the Air Filter
A dirty air filter reduces the force of the vacuum's suction and makes the motor work harder. Replace or clean your air filter according to the manufacturer's instructions, and let washed filters dry completely before reassembling. Some models have an additional filter for the exhaust, which also requires regular maintenance to avoid weakening the suction. You can locate filters for your model at Sears PartsDirect along with many other vacuum parts.
Empty the Debris Chamber
If the canister or debris bag is full, the vacuum can't pick up additional dirt and loses its suction power. Empty the debris chamber or replace it with a new bag as needed. To find instructions for your vacuum, search Sears PartsDirect for your model, then download the provided user manual for additional vacuum repair help.
Look for a Clog
Many clogs start small, then grow larger as dust and debris accumulate, weakening the vacuum's suction. Unplug the vacuum or remove the battery, then detach the brush head and hose. Tap the hose to see if particles fall out, and shine a flashlight through it to see if light passes. If you find no clog in the hose or brush head, next check the location where dirt enters the debris bag or canister and feel around for logged objects.
