Question about Electrolux Vacuums
I have a clog inthe main tubing. It is from a package of cotton make up pads that were sucked up when vacumming the bathroom on the second level of our house. I checked the vacuum outlet on the second level, the main level and the basement level and their is no suction when I plug the hose in. What can I do? Please help. Deb
Slide your garden hose up the length of the tubing after laying the tubing flat in a straight line. If the blockage is in the hose this will detect it. It may be necessary to hook the blockage out with a length of wire.

I had the exact same problem and was on my way out to purchase a new one when I came across solution #1. I decided to check the hoses more thoroughly and discovered my problem. I released the handle to extend the hose and, using a flashlight, inspected the inside of the hose leading to the dump tank. Sure enough, there was a clog where the hose attaches to the nozzle that I never would have seen without a flashlight. Works good as new!

SOURCE: no suction when vacuming floors
There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.
Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.
If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.
If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

If you haven't already, remove the beater bar. This is accomplished by unplugging the vacuum and turning it beater bar up. Remove the clips or screws that hold the plate on the beater bar and set aside. The beater bar sits in sockets, so carefully remove the bar, noting the correct position of the sockets. This will make reassembly much easier. Slip the beater bar out of the drive belt. Now, inspect the suction cavity that the beater bar would discharge into. Usually, things clog up here as there is a flex hose that catches things, creating a pluggage.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

Check to see if you have suction at the outlet, if so
the plug is in the hose or wand. If no suction at the wall, check at the vacuum. If you have suction at the vacuum then the line from the vacuum to the outlet
that you were connected is where the plug is.
Try a plumbers snake to try to get plug out.
