Is there a secret to getting more suction power out of the central vac? I've only used it a few times and not pulled up anything that should clog it. The suction started out very weak and is almost zero now. Please help!

Have you tried changing the bag? Are you sure there's a bag installed?

Depending on who did the PDI, I have heard that some got out without a bag installed at the dealer.

That sure doesn't sound like ours. There has to be something blocking the inlet somewhere in the system



Our vacuum seems like it has the most suction that I have ever seen on a vac.

My wife (and I) dislike the central unit.
Nice concept but dragging that hose around is a pain...
Got a smaller vacuum for the rv

(None of the three vacuums at home matched the rv so we couldn't use them !!):-)

Too bad it doesn't have a power head on it. Mine has GREAT suction and does a pretty good job. The only problem I have with mine is the static electricity it causes while I use it.

Also it's so humiliating, the way that my wife makes me dress while I vacuum and dust.

Ours works just fine and I asked my boss, who uses it everyday. No complaints here, from someone who doesn't use it.

Thanks for all your replies. It sounds like we need to investigate more thoroughly why it won't suck. Ahh, clearing out the storage unit to look into the innards. That's a job for when we get home from Camp Sherman, Oregon.
