Avid cleaners rely on Eureka vacuum parts to ensure that their vacuum cleaners stay in shape and last long. A common problem that arises in vacuum cleaners is diminishing suction quality. Here are a few tips to help you troubleshoot suction problems in your vacuum.
The quickest and easiest fix for a suction problem is to replace the vacuum bag. A full bag can prevent your vacuum from picking up any additional trash and dirt from your floor. Before you consider replacing vacuum parts, check your vacuum bag and replace it if it's full. Make sure you get the right size bag for your vacuum because an ill-fitting bag can generate more suction complications in your vacuum.
Suction problems in your vacuum can be an indicator that the hose is clogged, typically by dust particles tangled in hair or fur. Inspect your vacuum's hose and if there's a clog, remove it along with any other debris to improve your vacuum's suction quality.
If the hose isn't clogged and the vacuum bag isn't full, consider replacing the suction motor of your vacuum. The suction motor is responsible for rotating the fan, which generates suction by displacing air from the intake mechanism to the chamber that holds the dirt. The suction motor should be replaced if it doesn't work at all or if it isn't generating suction. Seek vacuum repair help before attempting to replace the suction motor.
