Attachment hose has no suction

My Dirt Devil Swivel Vision Model # 086915, which is about 8 years old, lost all suction. My husband took some of it apart and now at least the roller part has suction, but the attachment part has none. We've replaced filters and cleaned it.

Re: Attachment hose has no suction

Sometimes when you take them apart and
reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't
make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on
the lever at all) that switches
from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere
are no clogs in the duct then that the
most likely problem

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?

The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

there must be a blockage after the hose, check where the hose plugs into the vacuum. make sure unit is un plugged for safety
