If your suction is ok for normal cleaning and bad for just the hand tools then you have a blockage in the flexible hose or the "u pipe" at the bottom of the flexible hose. Un-clip the u pipe and check it for blockage. Un-clip the hose from the vacuum and you should be able to look through it when letting it hang straight down.
check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage. Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose. Good luck and let me know if I can help further.
The filter on a Henry does not need changing (unless torn or
damaged). It simply neeeds cleaning, either by vacuuming with
another machines or brushing clean. For maximum suction, air
must be able to flow through it. Next, change the bag. Finally
remove hoses and pipes etc and switch on, the suction that you can feel by putting your hand against his "nose", is the same suction that you should feel when pipes are back on.
If it is not, then you will have a blockage, usually in the flexi hose, but drop a coin through in order to establish where.
Yes. Remove the hose, disconnect all the different sections and visually check for blockages. Make sure you check the cleaning head as well. If nothing is visible reassemble by adding ONE SECTION AT A TIME and check the suction by switching the power on and seeing if the hose will stay stuck to your hand when you turn it upside down. If you find that the suction dies after re-attaching a particular section, then there is a blockage in that section. Make sure you re-connect all sections of hose fully and correctly.
It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

You have a blockage in the wand. Stand behind the machine and:
1) Remove the u-bend which is located NEXT to the right-hand side wheel, NOT above it. It connects from the bottom of the long gray hose to next to the right-hand side wheel. It is attached to the machine with a rectangular-shaped clip - push the clip and pull the pipe down.
2) Look through the wand if you can (DC07 wand is bent) - if you can't see the ground you have a blockage in either the hose or the wand
3) Remove the hose and separate it from the wand - hold the wand up into the air and look through it - if you can't see light coming through the other end, there is a blockage in the wand. Use a long object like a stick or a metal hanger to remove the blockage.
4) If the wand is clear, stretch the hose out and look for dark spots - those are the blockages. Again use a long object to remove the blockage - be careful not to damage the hose, you don't want to buy a new one.
check and see if your brush roller is turning.remove the hose and see if you have suction.if not then you have something stuck in the suction intake. after removing the hose turn it on and put your hand over the hole wher the hose was connected to the base.if there is suction there then you have a blockage in your hose.if thats the case take the hose completely off the vacuum and take it outside and blow it out with a garden hose.if the blockage is in the intake then get a coat hanger and bend the tip so it is round,then work it down into the hole where the hose was connected to the base.you should be able to push push out the clog through the bottom.also clean all the filters real good.you can also take the filters out and then turn it on if you have suction then ,then its the filters
Obviously no suction in hose would indicate a blockage, over heating is a breaker that shuts off the machine when it over heats. There is no way to clean hose the on this model because the hose does not detach at either end, therefore I had to employ the use of the good old wire hangar. Job complete up and running, with good suction. It is amazing what a prayer to God can do.
