I figured out how last night.
Take a screw driver and unscrew the screw on the top of hose and take the hose out and take a pen or something long enough with grip to get all of the junk out.
The circulation still isn't as strong though.

Hi, no im afraid its not that easy, the problem is with the wire that goes into the vac from the mains, now you see where the mains lead goes through in the back of the vac well what happens is when you vacing and moving the vac around this part wears and causes a short or loss of connection, now it usually happens when your using it then the free cable runs out and it pulls on the vac when you try goign further than the wire reaches, so the problem you are having is with the connection between the wire and the on/off switch, this is a very common fault with all vacs of this type.
to fix it your going to need to remove the cylinder and see if their is an access panel on the front of the vac behind the cylinder you take off to empty.
how ever if you have no electrical skills then its not safe for me to tell you how to do this repair, if you get it wrong you could do harm to anyone who uses the vac ok so be warned i have told you this ok.
the work involves removing the panel the other side of the switch then you need to undo the wires going to the switch you then need to pull the mains wire out of the vac so its no longer connected then cut it back 3 or 4 inches so as the part that is faulty has gone then you need to fit it all back together the right way round and make sure their is no bare wire showing and that it is all secure and then it should work.
but before you do all that check the fuse in the plug first as if its got hot this fuse may have blown so i would check that first before you decide what to do next ok.
it wont cost much to pay someone to do this as it wont require any parts, if you could take it to a reapir shop yourself then that will be even cheaper as you wont be paying a call out fee, also check if you have any warranty left on it as this fault wil be covered
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
please can you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.

Thank you for responding to my question. I should have spent some time really looking at my little machine. It wasn't hard to figure out -once I found and read the back of the cleaning solution bottle and tried my luck following the water to cleaner ratio.. Opening, adding the cleaning solution and water and re-closing the reservoir was pretty easy. Everything worked out fine...and my carpet is...spotless. Thank you, Cmarie

They should work the same, the advantage to the cleanable ones are you can reuse them for a while. But even those get to a point where cleaning doesn't help. But they should last a few years. The disposable ones you have to replace often, so you just have to decide which is cheaper and better for you.
