I have an Electrolux vaccume epic 3000 sr, that is not creating enough
suction to suck up hardly anything. I made sure the bag is new. Is there a
way to take it apart and clean and check for clogs.
Clog in hose is possible. Look in each end with a flashlight for a lump of
lint etc. which got there when a pin or toothpick got sideways and started
to collect fuzz. If you can't see it to pull it out with coat-hanger wire,
try rolling some glass marbles down the hose and see if they come out
without obstruction from the other end. Finally, connect the hose to blow out
(take it outside to do this) and maybe something will pop out.
Well I used to work on vaccumes when I was a younger man and can tell you
that its also posible that the motor fan
has worn out or shatterd when something solid got sucked up(depending on
which side of the bag the fan is). this does
have an unfortunate habit of happening. you should be able to get the whole
thing apart, just remember how to put it all
back together. and while you have it torn down clean everything thoroughly.
