Fro what you say, the unit is blowing instead of sucking, There must be a pipe that is connected to the wrong outlet. Feel where there is suction instead of pressure, that is where your vacuum pipe must be connected.
Clyde,make sure your hose is attached to suction side of vacuum. If over full or over full of bubbles in the waste section of vacuum this can happen or if the vacuum itself has become plugged possibly.

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. Hello, 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. http://www.royalvacuums.com Customer Service For help with a model that is not working, if you want to check an order, if you need help finding a part or service center or have any other comment, complaint or question that is not a technical question about this web site use the link above.

If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.
Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.
You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
