Sounds like you have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the dirt inlet maybe clogged.

You have a clog. The "bag full" indicator is nothing but a vacuum gauge, and impeding the airflow will cause a false indication of a full bag.
Clear your hoses and the air pathways behind the brushroll, and you will be back in business.

SOURCE: hoover empower lost suction

The first thing you need to do is remove the debris bin in the front. Turn on the vacuum and feel if there is any suction at the bottom of that compartment. If not then your problem is not a simple blockage and you can stop reading this right now, if you do feel good suction, you're in luck.

The problem is almost assuredly a blockage of some sort. The Hoover Empower's greatest feature is its simplicity of design which is basically a 12 amp motor creating a powerful suction over a very short path as vacuum cleaners go.

While you still have the debris container out of the machine, disconnect the accessory hose from its mount on the right (or "passenger") side of the machine and blow through it. You should plainly feel your own breath coming out of the rectangular slot in the area behind where the debris container mounts.

If you don't feel it, or if it is not strong, well there's your problem. You will need a Torx driver set to remove the 13 screws that hold the back of the vacuum cleaner on and the accessories hose in. Unless you are a total tool geek, you probably won't have anything like this around but you can pick up a set of Torx head screw drivers at any decent hardware store. The look like an Allen wrench set but the ends are different. Look at the screw heads and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Once you remove the screws, the rest of the job is a piece of cake. Brush out or wipe down the air channel and clear the accessory hose, put the rascal back together and buy yourself something nice with the 70 or 80 dollars you would have been charged to do the same work by someone else.

SOURCE: Dyson dc14 has lost suction

Down on the lower right hand side of the vacuum, when you're behind it, there is a little 'J' shaped piece with a purple clip on it. Tilt the vacuum up and unclip this. Usually, people who have these amazing vacuums will accidently **** up things like lollipop sticks/pens/paperclips/etc. that don't bend... and will stay in this piece. This should solve your problem.

Sounds like something is clogging up the pipes between the head and suction pipe. Have a poke around with some wire to see if it's full of hair or fluff, maybe even a sock?

Do you have suction at the hose end, if you do then it may be clogged at the inlet by the brush roll. Is the filter cartridge clean? If it is clogged and air can't pass thru it, then you will have no or low suction. Might also check the belt to make sure it is turning.
