Question about Sanyo Vacuums
This type of vacuum is not designed to vacuum up sheetrock
dust or pieces of sheetrock. The dust from sheetrock is so fine it will clog the vacuum bag, filters and possible the motor
So change the bag, use an air hose to blow out the motor area and
the hoses make sure that air hose has in line filter to catch moisture

Might be the hepa filter needs cleaning? This is located in the housing on the side of the cleaner at the bottom (see your manual to find it). It is a big spongy ring which Dyson say you should remove once a month and wash in warm water. Dry off and replace in cleaner when completely dry. I've found this works and the suction is like that of a new machine!

SOURCE: NO SUCTION
I fixed the very same problem about 15 minutes back. Mine is a 6660-900 but I believe all Hoover windtunnel uprights probably have the same basic design with minor differences. It has nothing to do with the belts.
When the vacuum is used with the hose, you are using it in the vertical locked position. When using on carpet, you step on a release tab/lever on the left corner of the deck. When you do this, a plastic gate opens diverting the vacuum (air flow) from the hose to the deck near the rolling brush area. When this gate gets stuck for some reason, it doesn't open even when you release the tab/lever. What I had to do was to open the cover over the brush roller (4 screws) near the front of the deck. Then when I wiped the bottom portion of the deck under where the hose is connected to the deck, I realised that the plastic there is clear plastic (it was covered with lot of dust before I wiped it). On the side where the hose connects to the deck, right under it is a tubular channel connecting to the brush roller area. Through the clear plastic of this channel, you will see a plastic disk blocking the channel opening. With the power disconnected, release the level for carpet cleaning (so that the deck can move relative to the handle). Now push with a finger on the plastic disk to make it go in and up. In my case some thread like material was caught between the disk edge and the channel/tube making it impossible to open with just the air pressure. After I removed the obstruction, the gate disk started moving freely when the vacuum was set for carpet cleaning. I put everything back together abd tested. Now it works beutifully.
If your model is different, you may find some minor differences but there has to be a vacuum diverter for the two positions. Just make sure it directs the vacuum where it is supposed to go.

that suggests that there is a blockage in the vacuum head. i would advise you do what you can to clean the head as best as possible and any tubing that is integral to the sweeper head.

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.
