I love my vacuum. I really do, it works great. I also love to vacuum, it is by far my favorite chore. I was a little sad the other day when I realized that it wasn't sucking too well anymore. I noticed it first when I was trying to use the hose. So, I poked around a bit and saw the clog in the tube. No big deal. It took one minute to clean it out and I was back up and running - except, still poor suction.
In the meantime, we've been rearranging some rooms in the house - my husband used the vacuum to clean up a bit in one area.
Later that evening:
Matt: The vacuum wasn't sucking too well before.
Me: Oh yeah. I know. I had meant to mention that to you. I noticed it with the hose. I cleaned it out but it still wasn't working too well.
Matt (smiling): That's because the vacuum bag was so full it had overflowed into the hose.
Duh. Why had I totally spaced on the fact that I needed to replace the bag? That should have been the first thing I did....it looked like I should have done that say, back in January. Oooooooops.
The vacuum works great again. My brain? we'll see...
No comments about the Dyson please. I love my vacuum. :)
