This style of vacuum has great airflow but does not have great suction, especially at the end of the hose but it still should have enough to pick up most soils. It may have a restriction in the suction tube or emptor. The disposable bag may be full or clogged, the outer bag could also be clogged.
1: A vacuum pulls air through the bag, then through the tube attachment and
then through the base (with the spinning agitator brush).
2:Check for signs of suction. Remove the tube attachment from its cradle
and, after turning on the vacuum, put your hand to the end of the tube.
Is there any suction at all? If there is a little bit of suction then
you may have a clogged air tube.
3:Check the vacuum bag. It may be very full. If it is then remove the bag
and replace it with a new bag. Check the suction power again. Has the
4:Check the tube attachment. Completely remove it from the vacuum. You
usually have to twist and pull the tube attachment out of place at the
point where it connects to the back of the vacuum. Check the suction
power again. This time you place your hand on the vacuum right where the
tube used to come out of the back of the vacuum. Has the suction
5:If the suction power has improved then you probably have a clogged tube.
Dog hair, people hair, leaves and more can get lodged in the tube
slowly over time and then suddenly block the tube completely.
6:Clean the tube by first trying to shake the debris out of the tube. If
this does not work then go outside and run a hose through the tube. Use a
pressure nozzle if you have one. Run the hose through one end of the
tube. Then run it through the other end. Repeat until the debris is
disloged. Dry the tube and then reattach to the vacuum.
7:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you
can stop reading now. If not then read on.
8:Check the air hose in the base of the vacuum. This hose is usually
pretty short and you can see if there is any blockage. If you see
blockage then try to remove it. You may need to reach into the hose with
a tool (like a screw driver or something long).
9:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you
can stop reading now. If not then read on.
10:If you made it to this step then you may have a problem with the motor
on your vacuum. If this is the case then you will need to take the
vacuum in to a repair shop.

perhaps there is something stuck in the vacuum. Look where the hose fits in. There is obvioulsy no blockage in the hose because you have suction. Do the power brushes spin on the vacuum?? Take the bag off, and inspect the area the bag fits in for blockage.
Please define "works" on carpet mode" do you mean when you say it does not work at all, that it does not run, or does not have suction. This sounds like the symptom of a clogged hose with blockage like this another vac needs to be used to draw things back out of the hose the way they went in.. Remove the hose and try dropping a penny through it . If there is an obstruction the penny will stop at that point and rattle inside the hose.
With a blockage at the hose, your power head will still lift lint and light soft dust, it will appear to have suction because the brush will sweep but the dirt will not go all the way through the hose. Please post back to clarify if this is a vac that does not run or simpley has no suction
I had the same problem with my vacuum. I called in for technical service and was told to push the "reset button". It turns out that there is a small red button right next to the dirt indicator light. I pushed the button, plugged the vacuum back in and started it up and it worked like a charm! :) Hope this helps!
