If you experience a loss of suction with your Numatic vacuum cleaner, it is most certainly for one of these five reasons:
- The bag
- The filter
- A blockage
- A problem in the airflow
- So let’s start with the bags. This will seem obvious, but the first thing to check is that the bag is not full because it is the first cause of loss of suction. Also, check that there are no holes or tears in the bag. When you change bags, try to buy original bags rather than cheap versions that are sometimes of lower quality. If you have a bagless vacuum, make sure that you empty the dust container regularly.
- Now the filters. All Numatic vacuums have these large bucket-shaped filters and are washable. So all you have to do is remove the filter from the grill, rinse it with warm water and allow it to dry for about 24 hours. When you are ready to put it back in place, be sure to place the filter in the grid. Otherwise, it will cause a massive loss of suction. If you lose the grid (or damage it), you can buy another grid; this is common.
- Then blockages, it often happens that an object comes to lodge itself in the pipe or the tube of extension. Just look at the naked eye if you see something and then feel the pipe along its length. If you think something, you can try to dislodge it with a hanger that you can form the desired turn.
- Now comes the problems in the airflow. Over time, the pipe’s plastic deteriorates, and the fact that everyone pulls their Henry through the rooms of the house gets worse. This can cause small tears in the pipe and consequent loss of suction.
Finally, if you have tried all our previous tips and your vacuum still does not aspire as before it is most likely because of the engine. All Numatic motors are replaceable. The pose is a little complex, but it is feasible!
One of the causes that can cause our vacuum cleaner to lose power is that it has an air leak. The first thing we have to do is to check all the pieces: tube, brush, and bag. Sometimes some small cracks or holes cause the loss of power. If this happens, we can fix it with a patch or change the damaged piece. A good trick to check if the pieces lose air is to cut a strip of paper and go around placing the pieces until it moves.
Another cause may be the dirt that accumulates in both the filter and the bag and that we should usually empty. It is essential that in addition to emptying and shaking the bag, we also clean it. The trick is to make a mixture of warm water and vinegar. Thanks to this, we will be able to remove much of the dust that remains embedded.
Finally, you should check the transmission belt, as it may be another cause that makes us lose power. This piece, we have no choice but to change it if it is damaged.
