the vacuum is lying face down with the bottom up, one end of the u-tube fits
into the hose end, on the left. The other end goes into something, I
just felt it, I could not feel an opening. However, the vacuum
will not sit up, the handle falls back. There is suction.

Lift red tab at top of handle then pull the entire handle upwards, this then gives you a solid tube about 80 cm long and a long flexi hose connected to the lower end. If you don't want to use the tube part there is a button at he fexi end that you press in. The different attachments can then be fitted either to the handle / tube or the flexi hose
the best way to clear the hose is to use a wire coat hanger to fish out the debris ( bend the wire straight and then bend a small hook in one end ).
also make sure you remove the floor plate and fish out that hose area.
remove the filter from the dirt cup and try again,if you have suction the the filter is clogged.the other is the intake hose that goes into the top of the base where the clear tube is.disconnect the hose from the base tube and take a coat hanger and bend the end into a hook.open the litte flapper door and stick the hanger down in the tube and see if you can pull out a clog of dirt.last but not least,disconnect the top hose completelyfrom the vacuum and see if you can blow through it.if you can't then the flex top hose is clogged.open the little flapper door on the top of the base and turn on the vacuum,if the intake hose isn't clogged then you should have suction.that will tell you that the broblem is in the flex hose or the filter
did you take the hose off and put your hand down where the hose was connected?.i would say your intake is clogged.if you take the bottom off you will see a tube on the left side as your facing the vacuum.thats your intakesee if there is anything in there.if not you might have to take it open all the way to the motor.there might be something blocking the impeller on the motor where the suction originates.feel free to call me and i'll help you i don't charge for the help.be glad to help you..pete.314-628-9153
the lower tank lid is removed and then remove the front "duct" panel. now insert the "triangle" end of the hose with the point facing down where the duct came out. re-install the lower tank lid.

Set the bottom part of the handle down(not the part that the screws go in)the contact board will fit into slots on the left side of thehandle half, the switch will go where the cutout is for it on the top, the plug is notched to fit at the lower front part of the handle. Then put the the tube into the hose and set it into the handle. There is a ribe near where the tube sticks out of the handle, it fits into a slot just before it sticks out. There also is a stop for the hose to up against so the contact rings can't slip off. Then put the other half on and screw it down.
I had the exact same problem. The port is a relief valve to prevent the motor from burning out if the hose/bag are clogged. Check the main hose from end to end after removing the 3 screws that hold it to the body of the vacuum near the handle. If that's clear then it's almost certainly clogged in the short tube that goes from the beater bar housing to the hose extension (where the flex tube attaches). There are two ways of going about this. Option 2 (the way I did it) -- Lock the base on the upright position and turn the unit over. Unscrew the 12 or so screws in the black base. You'll need to depress the release pedal when removing the screw at the end of the pedal. Once you have all of the screws removed carefully wiggle the base loose. You do not need to remove it completely to access the short flex tube. Clean it out and replace everything in the opposite order from how you removed it.
Option 1 (what I would do next time) -- Cut a wire coat hanger and make a small 1/2" hook at the end. Bend the straight section into about a 4" radius arc leaving plenty to handle at the end opposite the hook. Carefully snake the hanger down the tube and pull out the giant clump of hair and dirt that's clogging the vacuum.
Not necessarily. Some Dyson models have an all inclusive flexi hose which attaches to the handle spine. Check EBay for replacement flexi hoses - UK has many sellers - or handles which have the metal pole and the flexi tube attached.
Alternatively take off the flexi hose from the bottom rear of the Dyson - it can come out via a press in lock release but it may take some time to do this. Once that is done the flexi hose should come down freely from the metal tube. If it doesnt then you may need to consider both replacements.
