so im gonna check all the seals and hoses make sure there isnt a leak somewhere!

Have you clean or replaced the filter recently?

I have that problem where my pressure never went above the starting pressueer of 11 and it norrmally always max's at 20 during the night.

RE: My machine is not blowing fully
almost forgot to update. all is well again!! when i was dusting (i do it once a month) the inside out, i left a screw loose on the housing case Sad so there wasnt a seal around the edges where the blower could intake or put out.

all is fixed, and i learned my lesson lol. dont half a$$ screws Tongue

Breathless tom, yeah i recently did change my black filter, i dont use the white filters anymore,.

and apparently, i had to edit this to reply to you, because im only allowed to post 7 times in my first day LOL. silly.

so, thank you all for your help!! I am so glad i found this site! this is going to be awesome!
