Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.

My vacuum blows air instead
Posted by katweaver3 on May 04, 2008
My vacuum blows air instead of sucking air. I have a dirt devil swivel guide. I got something stuck in the brush spinner, got it out...but now the vacuum doesn’t **** stuff up anymore.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally if your vacuum has a round belt you may have your belt on backwards, please reverse the belt and the suction will return also you may have a clog in the tube leading up to the bag or dirt cup would be anther reason for the blowing instead of suction. This is not covered under the factory warranty. Feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer for questions.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Check the hose to make sure it's not clogged. You can do this by dropping a marble in one end and allowing it to roll through. If clogged, try placing the "wrong" end against the intake port of the vacuum and turning it on. If this doesn't work, try a shop or canister vacuum, hooking up to the exhaust port. If still no success, you may need to take it in to the dealer.
Also check inside the intake port for clogs. The piece of flex tube in the power head is another area where clogs form easily.
Make sure the "dirt tank" is empty and the filter is clean.
Another cause of lost or poor suction/air flow is a leaky hose. For this, replacement is the only solution.
