I have a FilterQueen Vacuum and It stopped picking up so I stuck something up inside the metal tubing and felt something jammed in there..The only problem is I've tried everything to get it out, even sticking something up there but it made it worse. I would really appreciate some help, thanks!
You should be using a broom or mop handle to clear the wand - metal tubing. If you still need help please contact the manufacture at 1-800-344-1840. I did and they were very helpfull, they also sent me a manual at no cost.

First thing to check it to confirm that you have a clog. flatten out the bag and turn the vacuum on. if the bag inflates then you dont have a clog. if the bag doesnt inflate then you do have a clog. to remove the clog turn the vacuum upside down you will notice 5 Philips screws that are sunk in the baseplate. if you remove all 5 screws the baseplate can come off just by pulling up once you take it off you will notice a few things. i first suggest removing the belt by rolling it off the roller brush or motor. after the belt is removed you can now take off the roller brush by pulling up on it. now you will be able to look in to the intake pivot which it the peice that is left of the motor that the air flows through. I would look in there if you see something then pull it out if not then there is a step you can take further. remove the 2 motor screws but dont take out the motor. and remove the screw in the intake pivot. now you should be able to pull up on the intake pivot and it will come off. now you can look into the fan from where you just removed the intake pivot. if you see something there then great if not then I would start re-assembly once you have everything back together, turn the vacuum upright and so your facing the black metal tube. unscrew the lower black collar to the left. and then disconnect the outer bag from the metal clip an that same location. then pull staight up on the black tube and that will seperate from the base so you can look in the fanhouing and the tube it self. after clearing it put it back together tighten the collar and clip you outer bag in and your all set!
It's a tight fit to start with, and it's nothing unusual about that if you don't take them apart regularly.
One way to loosen them is to tap the tube that goes in and near the union, with something that won't damage the metal. Just keep turning the tubes and tapping. They won''t come apart immediately, but with a little patience they will come apart.
I had the same exact problem.
Seems something was wrong or stuck in the tubes.
Finally, when I kept trying to clean it out, the tube ripped off and I found a clog of dust in it.
So, try getting replacement tubes & it'll work for sure!
I wish I helped you!

We had the exact same issue. Turns out my wife had inadvertantly sucked up a magnet that was the same size ans the tube. Hold the tube up to a light source. If you cannot see any light, there is something stuck in it. To dislodge the item, stretch out a wire hanger and run it through the tube. It should lislodge the item. Dyson's are great but are very tempermental!
I cannot express enough you need to clean your dyson as great as it is its still a vaccum. look underneath at roller, clean out tube wash filter and check to see if vaccum ate something which is stuck inside. I have had mine for 4years and still picks up after 2goldens and kids.
Do you have a telescopic/height adjustable wand or just two tubes which have to be stuck together? If they are made of plastic well, it may well be broken. If its metal check that the tops aren't corroded or the handle itself isn't broken. If the tubes/wand isn't sliding up and down (i.e. if its height adjustable) then something has got stuck. Sadly for this kind of repair you'd be better off to buy replacement wands or consider something aftermarket on EBAY. Check the diameter of the tubes with a ruler. If it is 3.2cm (32mm) or 3.5cm (35mm) you can buy replacement tubes. If you can't afford that then try furniture polish on a J cloth or similar and with a stick wedge it inside the tube/wand so that it adds a little lubrication or simply a clog - it sounds like there is dirt clogged in the part that slides. Dont forget to rate, thanks.

Can there be a loose screw inside ? Can I open the motor and look inside ? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The sounds coming from the motor sounds like it is the 2 sheet metal fans that do loosen up and start to make noise; and if you are handy and can do service work yourself you can replace the fans, but make sure you mark the wires when you remove the wire and the motor.
