I have a Dyson DC07 and it has lost suction. I have checked the belt, cleaned the circular filter and emptied the dirt chamber. The hose still has plenty of suction but I can't use the hose the vacuum...

Here are some things you can check.First you need to see if the problem is with the suction or agitation.If the suction on the hose for using the attachments is low you either need new filters a new cyclone(they are not cleanable) or it is clogged.To check for a clogg remove the cyclone and turn on the vacuum can put your hand over the suction side of the handle tub and feel if it has suction there.Reinstall the cyclone and again check the hose.If it is the same you don't likley have a suction problem you have an agitation problem.The 2 belts on the DC07 are part of the clutch and when they are strectched to a certain point (3-5years) the clutch needs to be can check the clutch by turning on the vacuum cleaner and applying slight pressure downward on the front of the vacuum head.If the vacuum makes a loud ratcheting noise or you can stop the brush from turning the problem is most likely the clutch.One last thing is to make sure the bottom plate is on correctly I often see a misaligned bottom plate and the brush dosen't hit the carpet so it dosen't pick up.

Take off the brush cover and check that the suction orifice is clear. Also check the rubber flaps at the bottom of the hose/handle holder is correctly positioned.
