SOURCE: i have a dirt devil
Will try to help here.. first off.. regardless of the brand..upright vacs operate pretty much the same way.. I assume that when you plug it in and start it that the motor runs as well as the beater brush on the base.. from the sound of your symptoms and presuming everything runs.. you probably have a clogged line between the base and the motor.. If you unplug it first then flip it over so you can see the base bottom.look for recessed screws in the plastic bottom cover and back them out ( you will reuse them later so do not lose them) Once you get all the screws out..you should be able to remove the wheels and bottom cover.. You'll probably see a fair amount of debris there so you may want to do all this over a barrel... Next, with the bottom cover removed... you should see a path or hose that will channel all the dirt etc up to the bag or bucket...That is probably blocked up and you may need another vac and/or metal coat hanger cut open and formed into a pick to pry some of that material out of the line.. If you have access to another vacuum ..try using that to free up any lodged material in the tubing.. Hope that helps...

remove the dirt cup, the top part should turn a little bit and then separate ( look were the clear plastic meets the colored top you might see a little picture of a lock and a open lock turn the lid towards the unlocked position , the filter should be in there

make sure your brush roller is turning.unplug the vacuum and see if you can turn the brush roller by hand.if it turns real freely then your belt is more than likely broke

The suction hole will never have wind coming out of it, it is for suction. To switch from floor to hose, turn the control knob labeled floor / hose.

SOURCE: How do I change the
I just changed mine and I will be blunt. First off, the design is **** on this vacume, secondly the belt was designed to break on the rusty carbon steel pully rod. Ok now that I've vented we will get down to business. On the bottom of the vacume you will find a plastic housing thats covering the brush. It will have 4 screws around the brush plus one above them. The housing itself is shaped like an L. Remove all the screws and expose the bare brush. This was not my case but there should be a belt holding the brush to a small steel pully rod in the top part of the L indention. If not then just locate an indention on the brush where the belt will be placed and look directly beneath that to find the pully rod (probably about 6 inches beneath the indention on the brush). wrap your new belt around the metal pully rod and then take out the brush. Wrap the other end of the belt around the indention on the brush and pull up hard and replace the brush in its vacume housing. This will take some effort as the belt has to be stretched. When finished replace the housing cover with the five screws and boom you're done.
