Question about Vacuums
Well, Anthony, considering as how I have no idea of what brand, make, model or color your vac is, I can't make much of a guess as to why it doesn't work. We'd need more info if you want to log back on at a later date, such as brand, model, maybe even a picture of the unit so we could see just where your problem might be.

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.
Here is a video that you may find useful
PS I Thought DYSONS were guranteed to NOT lose suction? What a RIP!

SOURCE: I ran my vacuum against
There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. All that needs to be done in most cases is to turn this switch off and back on again and the beater bar should resume operation.
The beater bar on / off / reset switch is the yellow switch to the left of the main power button if you are standing in front of the hoover:
Reset the beater bar and you should be back up and running.
If you have already done this or it doesn't solve your problem, please post back for further assistance.
PLEASE NOTE: This reset method is for the Dyson DC17 ANIMAL as stated above. If you have a different version of the DC17, please post back for alternative instructions and state which version of DC17 you have.
Hope this helps.
