Things to check: Check again that the pipes aren't clogged. Check all the way through from where the muck goes in to where it's supposed to end up, paying particular attention to places where the pipe narrows, goes round a bend, or changes material. Check the machine doesn't just need emptying. Wet/dry machines usually have some sort of float operated stop valve to stop you flooding the motor when you've filled it with water. Make sure this isn't stuck shut. Check everything from the impellor right back to where the muck goes in is airtight. It doesn't take a huge hole to lose you a lot of suction. Pay particular attention to places that are meant to come apart routinely, and places where hoses join to hard fittings. If in doubt, run the machine and listen for sucking noises. If there's a filter between the fan and the air outlet (there usually is) make sure it is clean Assuming the motor is running, check it is turning the fan impeller. Hopefully, one or other of these will get you somewhere. A.

SOURCE: No suction
I had a a low suction problem. Mine was easily fixed. Stand in front of the machine. When you remove the recovery tank there are the notches on the front of the tank that fit down into the machine. In the right hole in which the right notch fits, there should be a black rubber washer on the machine. Mine somehow came off and feel into the machine therefore there was practically no suction as the seal was not airtight. I only discovered this when I took apart the machine and found it floating around. Just something to check.

SOURCE: Central vacuum not sucking
Usually when there is no suction, and the main unit is running, then either the hose or somewhere in the piping there is a clog. If you move the hose to another location, is there suction? If not then the hose is clogged. You can unhook the pipe at the unit, flip the switch to manual, if it comes on and there is suction there, then there is a clog in the piping, If in the piping, tear up small strips of paper and mark them by number and insert one in each inlet, run the unit on manual to suck them up, and which ever numbered strip isn't there in the bucket, then that is the inlet that is clogged.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo
4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off
5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.
6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo
9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart
10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

SOURCE: No Suction
The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.
