SOURCE: valve stem assembly
Put the rubber seal on the bucket first, then put the spring on the valve stem, slip into the hard collar, then push it into the opening in the seal, it will snap into place.

SOURCE: hoover empower lost suction
The first thing you need to do is remove the debris bin in the front. Turn on the vacuum and feel if there is any suction at the bottom of that compartment. If not then your problem is not a simple blockage and you can stop reading this right now, if you do feel good suction, you're in luck.
The problem is almost assuredly a blockage of some sort. The Hoover Empower's greatest feature is its simplicity of design which is basically a 12 amp motor creating a powerful suction over a very short path as vacuum cleaners go.
While you still have the debris container out of the machine, disconnect the accessory hose from its mount on the right (or "passenger") side of the machine and blow through it. You should plainly feel your own breath coming out of the rectangular slot in the area behind where the debris container mounts.
If you don't feel it, or if it is not strong, well there's your problem. You will need a Torx driver set to remove the 13 screws that hold the back of the vacuum cleaner on and the accessories hose in. Unless you are a total tool geek, you probably won't have anything like this around but you can pick up a set of Torx head screw drivers at any decent hardware store. The look like an Allen wrench set but the ends are different. Look at the screw heads and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Once you remove the screws, the rest of the job is a piece of cake. Brush out or wipe down the air channel and clear the accessory hose, put the rascal back together and buy yourself something nice with the 70 or 80 dollars you would have been charged to do the same work by someone else.
