What needs done depends on the vacuum and where the blockage is. You might be able to pull the blockage out or you may have to remove some parts to remove it. Many times a blockage is caused by clogged filters. If the filters do not have adequate airflow it may not be able to moved the debris through the vacuum and causes it to clog. It's important to replace filters at least once per year in most vacuums

I have a loud winning noise in my vacuum with no suction.


This sounds like you have a blockage in the vacuum hose.
Clear this blockage and the suction will return.

Not much suction


Check that the bag and filter are clean.
Try it without the hoses and fittings, If there is better suction the hose has a blockage. Reverse the hose and and hold it against the inlet on the machine and let the machine **** though the hose backwards. This sometimes clears a blockage.

The vacuum does not operate normally, there is no suction, where can I get it service. We live in Toronto, it was purchased this fall.


If there's no suction, you should first check the User Manual for how to clear blockages (this is the most common suction-loss problem). If you're certain there are no blockages, the machine is still within its warranty period so you should return it to the place where you bought it.

My Dyson dc 18 slim extender wand has NO suction. There is a plastic white cylinder object blocking.


If the floor head has suction and the wand does not, or vice-versa, the white cylinder you are referring to diverts the suction between the floor head and wand. If the flimsy plastic switch used to turn the cylinder is broken, you may need a new under carriage or just set the cylinder to wand or floor manually and use it as a one dimension cleaner. Depending on your ability, perhaps the switch can be purchases and replaced by a DIYer, but the job looks moderately difficult.

No suction from underneath , plenty suction via hose.


There must be a blockage in the machine base. Unplug the machine lie it completely flat and turn it over, open the orange or grey trap door and clear the blockage. Also inspect the area where the hose/tube connects to the machine.

Decreased wand suction


The blockage could be in the wand itself or in the entry duct of the machine. Take the wand off, look through it and if you can't see light coming through the other end, there is something stuck in the wand - take it out with a long object like a metal hanger...if the wand is clear, call the Dyson helpline - they will do a thorough blockage troubleshoot over the phone and clear the blockage.
