Detach the wand from the hose and see if you have suction from the hose itself. It is more often the blockage is in the corrugations of the hose than in the wand, but also check the elbows of any tools attached to the wand and look thru the wand itself..
Anything caught in the hose should be sucked backward with another vac.
Try opening the dust container, remove the bag if there is one and drop a coin through the hose to locate blockage. The coin will come to rest against the blockage if there is any or drop thru..
If you shake the hose you will locate the blockage by feeling the vibration of the coin against the wall of the hose.This will pinpoint your problem area.
Caution rough use with a wire coat hanger could damage the hose and broomsticks get stuck. Use another vac if the hose is blocked.

I have a kenmore model 116.25512506. The roller is spinning but no suction from the head. The attachments have suction but not the head. How do I remove bottom cover to check for blockage?


Is the suction control plastic ring shut?. If it's wide open you get almost no suction. See picture.
25823072-bhx41vpbxgcw2fhkwng0wody-1-0.jpg If that is closed check the long metal wand. Disconnect from the beater bar head and check the whole length of the wand and look into the beater bar head opening for something plugging it.

Kenmore canisters are famous for melting the connection between the hose handle and the upper wand. They also sometimes melt between the lower wand and the power nozzle neck. Take it to your local vacuum repair center and get a diagnosis.

No suction when I release the wand


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC28 doesn't seem to have suction through the hose, it's likely you have a blockage in the hose, wand or airway. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/dc28/dc28-animal/diagnosis-root-menu/dc28filterwashvid/wand-suction-dc28

This should resolve the issue, but if you need further help after giving this a try we're on hand to offer advice. Just give us a call 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under our 5-year warranty.

Vacuum not picking up dirt


The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

The suction works in the wand, but not in the main vacuum


Sounds like you got wraped up in your work..
You need to take the bottom plate off and expose the brush. Once you in side you can unwind the mess. You should change the belt at the same time. Good luck. DFD

Vacuum not picking up


At the top of your wand, do you have a plastic swivel that cover a hole in the wand? This is for when you are cleaning curtains, and if that is open, or cracked you will loose suction there... also check your hose for cracks, or breaks. If it were in the shop I would put a gauge on it... normal suction is about 80-95 inches of water lift at the end of the hose. Once you have check each section of the hose, and wand, check the housing for cracks, a missing gasket (Very Good Reason For Lack Of Suction) As to your Filter, how long have you used that one filter, you can clean them for a while, but once a paper filter gets full of FINE dust you won't get it all out, you will have to replace the filter itself at that point. I hope this was helpful.

Getting suction to use attachments


When the vacuum is in the upright position, it should give you suction thru the hose.
