Suction Equals Brush Power
I ordered and received the Rugrat mini vacuum accessory. I was initially disappointed with the unit because the slightest pressure would stop the brush. I learned how to use the unit without stopping the brush and was starting to think that, with limitations, it was a fairly uesful tool. Now the brush will not rotate at all or, if it does, then very slowly. This is with no load on the unit. What do you suggest?
How well the brush works depends directly on the suction available. Please beat out or change your filter and reach up into the vacuum and remove any small secondary filters or scrape any screens clean. This should help a lot. Also, if your hose is 10 years old it needs to be replaced. Tiny air leaks rob the suction. Let us know how it goes.
