Question about Dyson Slim DC18 All Floors HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Iron/Titanium/Yellow
HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!
First things first, unplug your vacuum and turn it over. Check your brush roll for any large amount of debris. This usually comes in the form of carpet fibers, or hair strands wrapped around the brush roll. Try manually rotating the brush roll, this will help unclog any hidden debris.
What's the quality of the bristles on the roll? If they look worn down, or loose then it's time to replace the brush roll itself.

I have this on my mums vacuum cleaner and it was the power cable to the motor.
Only perform these checks with the mains power unplugged.
These se cleaners do not use a belt, the beater bar is actually two cylinders with a motor between them. This motor requires a power supply. Carefully looking between the joint between the upright and the bar assembly may reveal a break in the cable.
In this case I would suggest a prefers signal repair (if for no other reason that the flexible curly cable might be difficult to source).

Take a good look to make sure roller not bound up with thread etc and at one end the belt (some in the middle is not broken) that drives the roller is intact---belt broken or seized up.

Un-plug the machine first. Turn the unit over and remove the bottom plate. Check for and remove any debris in, around, or behind the beater bar assembly. While you're in there, look at the beater bar ends where the bearings sit. and clean any debris, hair, etc, from those areas as well.

The head is blocked by something, it could be a bottle top, rolled up tissue, or something like that.
Take it off the end of the wand and look down the hole
'with a flashlight" where the wand goes into it..
You should be able to see it in there.
The object should be pushed out the way it went in..
Try using something made of plastic to push it out with...

I realize this questioned was posted >1 year ago, but in the event you still have the poor suction/wheezing or if anyone else has this issue, here's what worked for us.
Use a plumbers sink snake to unclog the "pipe". I thought it was the pipe on the right hand side (when you're looking at it) which needed to be unplugged. There was a little in that size, however we retrieved the nastiest "hairball" out of the left hand side (when you're looking at it) and after removing that, and re-testing, the suction was incredible. In addition, the "wheezing" noise was no longer there.
