take the dirt cup out and turn the bottom of it that will let you get to the filter,there should be some finger twist plates on the top,turn and take it out,there will be a foam cover around the filter,take that off and clean with warm warter,when done towel dry with paper towels,now the filter itself is water friendly ,take a brush and in up and down strokes ,clean while running water over it.above where the dirt cup goes is another filter ,just reach up inside and twist and it will come out,clean that also.now put the dirt cup back in without the filter and see if you have suction,i believe you will.let the filters dry before you put them back in then reassemble,and if that don't work, the take the hose off and see if you can blow through it .if thats not it then at the bottom on the right you will see a clear hose,thats your intake hose.there is a screw on the black fitting thats connected to it ,take it out and get you a coat hanger and bend the tip so its rounded ,thats so you don't puncture a hole in the intake hose.work the hanger down into the intake hose and push out the clog .then try it again..please leave feedback.i hope i was some help to you.iwould clean the foam filteres at least once a month

go to the main unit,you have a blockage where the suction originates.can you disconnect the main suction line to the unit?do that and turn it on.if you have suction then then the main suction tube is blocked.a towel or rag of some sort got sucted in and got caught before it made it to the dirt tank please leave feedback

You might try sucking the sose out with another vacum from the wrong way. You might be able to remove the hose and push a broom handle or stiff wire through. If you have compressed air available, you could try that, outside.
Im sure you have a clog and if you remove it, you will be back in business.

So I have exactly the opposite problem, it sucks in floor mode but the hand held has zero suction. My daughter and i just spent the last hour disassembling and diagnosing and found this: The way the suction tube is configured, you have two places to **** from, the floor and the hand held hose. If you look at the back of the machine, you can see the "y" where the two hoses join. just behind the beater bar there is a blast gate that closes when you stand the machine upright. This closes the blast gate and directs full sution to the hand hose. In floor mode as the handle tips back, a follower wheel and spring move the blast gate to open. THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART...if the hose is not docked, there is a second place for the suction to go and you will get no suction at the floor. In my case, the center post where the spring mounts is broken and the blast gate flap does not close, so the hand hose gets no suction because it is like a straw with a hole in it, the air will seek the least resistance. In your case you either have not returned the hose to the docking port or your blast gate is stuck in the closed position. To check this remove the two screws and clamp that secure the lower hose to the suction manifold. Pull the hose stright an look inside to see if the blast gate is open or closed. Use the release pedal to cycle the machine between upright and floor mode and you should see the blast gate open and close. If you don't, well that's a whole other story. I'm off to see if I can find a replacement part at repairclinic.com. If not I will have to get some polyester epoxy and fix it myself.

It is not a solid short. This is caused by static arcing in the wand and in the connectors from base to hose. I was able to fix mine by smearing some dialectric grease on all electrical parts in the wand(especially by the led switch) and in the three prong connectors at the base to hose. Have not had nay problems since doing this.
