Likely you have sucked something into it that is obstructing air flow. Most often it is in the hose itself...remove the hose and shove a broomstick through it (I know...real "high tech" but it works! If that does not work, you will need to take the machine apart and find where the obstruction is. Don't forget to look in the passage going to the hose from the head where the roller is too.
Most are not that complicated and come apart with just a screwdriver.(some newer ones use torks head screws in which case you may need to get a screwdriver with the correct size end on it)
The biggest problem I have seen with people taking them apart is that they tend to overtighten the screws when they put them back in...don't forget that it's plastic. Make note of any longer screws and where they go.

How do you turn off the hose suction when using the floor vacuum?


Hi! There is no way to reduce the suction in the vacuum. The hose should be assembled on both ends when using the vacuum on floors. You can reduce the suction by raising the 5-level height adjustment. Hope this helps!

What do to if keeps spitting things out even if new bag is in?


It sounds like the roller brush is going, but the vacuum isn't working, i.e., no suction.
If you have a canister vacuum, disconnect wands from hose and place hand at end of hose. If there is suction, it's fine. If not, disconnect hose from vacuum, turn on vacuum, and hold hand to intake. If there's suction here, then the hose must be clogged; or holey hose can result in greatly reduced suction.
If it's an upright, the hose could be clogged. Or the fan broken, which would also result in no suction. It would help to know what model you have.

Is there a switch to turn-off the tools so that


On the Hoover U6311-900 there is no switch that turns off the suction to the tool hose. That hose is attached to the head of the vacuum on the side via a spring loaded "door". Just twist the hose to remove it, the door will close and you will have full suction again.

No suction for Kenmore upright vacuum


You have not stated which model vacuum you have. Bipass vacuum have a bipass compartment which is under drive unit. Make sure there are no cracks around housing as this is where you vacuume is created. In order to have vacuum you must have airflow, in assences suction. No air flow, no suction. If the airflow is deverted somehow suction will stop. Your filter, your bag are all sources of air flow. Clog either and you lose suction. Start with loss of air, being cracks in housing,bag or filter

Suction?


You won't feel a great deal of suction like you tried to do it. But look at the fan, if it isn't worn down, and the bag fills with air when you turn it on, then the suction should be ok. If you haven't changed your belt in awhile, I am sure that it is stretched and is having trouble turning the brush roll.
