When using my vacum upright its very low in suction, it used to be so powerfull that it lifted my carpet slightly....when using the tools section its as strong as it should be please help, ive cleaned it...

Check the following items:

* The bag and connection - change it if it's full

* Turn the vacuum over and inspect the beater bar area for any clogging. You may have to remove the bottom plate to really clean it out.

* The beater bar and especially the drive belt - this area gets dirty and the belt can wear out after continued use. The brushes can also wear out on the beater bar

Try to work on the vacuum in a well ventilated area. Make sure you unplug the unit so it's safe to service

No suction, brushes move

Well you did not provide make and model either. If a Hoover, there is a valve on some that depending which position the handle is in, will be open or closed. It may not be working, so when in the upright, there is suction for the hose, but when you tip the handle back, the valve doesn't move and blocks suction from below. You will have to remove the top cover to check it out.

Loss of suction when using upright. Suction remains for samll tools

I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.

When the vacuum is in the upright position, it should give you suction thru the hose.
