Hoover problems

Have recently bought a battery powered hoover to clean my gravel in the tank. Only problem is its not sucking up anything. I've seen them working on you tube really well. Do you have to do anything to them other than stick them in and push the button?

The batteries are brand new.

Thanks for replies.

Yes as far as I know I have set it up correctly. The batteries are in correctly as you can hear the motor working but when you put it over the gravel it doesn't do anything. Is there anything online I can check it against setup wise??

Well that is weird. I have taken the end attachment off with the forky bit off and it works! Why it doesn't all work is a mystery though. You have to be careful not to suck it right up or the gravel jams the little blades.

I have an 80 and a 200 , but I think now I might have to get another fortunately the 80 was empty and waiting for me to decide who was going in , so now the babies have it all on their own
