    There is no suction from the upright position. The attachment hose has light suction that increases slowly if you place it against your hand.

I checked the vacuum hose to see if there was a clog. 1st, disconnect the hose from the unit so you have access to both ends. Now, place a marble or other ball in one of the hose and see if it will make it all the way through. I found a major "hairball" about 8-10 in down from the vacuum end. I took a metal cloths hanger and bent it in half and did a "roto-rooter operation. It took about 30 minutes, but now it runs like new. I hope this works for you.

Bare floor selection still rotates brushes


Your switch should have 2 different on positions. One for simple suction and one to engage the beater. The setting without the beater being engaged should be first position from off and the beater would be second position

Eureka Boss - no suction in upright postion


when mine does that I find that the hose is not connected properly where it comes off to use the attachments.
If there is suction there, it is a straight shot to the floor unless it is loose where it fits together.
