Is your vacuum cleaner not working or simply clogged?
This is the order of what you should do to find out whether your vacuum has a clog in it:
- Start by checking the brush head of the vacuum to see if anything is stuck at the very beginning, and, if so, remove the blockage.
- Next remove the straight wands and look through them for a blockage before doing the same with the flexible hose. It is easy to look through the flexible vacuum hose by letting one end dangle and looking downward toward the floor.
- To remove any blockage, gently push a rod similar to a broomstick though the vacuum tubing.
- Lastly, check out the machine itself. While all vacuums are different, most of them have a removable plate on the backside and you only need to remove the screws and take off this plate to get at the areas that might be blocked.
