Sometimes there is a physical switch to move the air ducts that connect to the suction motor. I'm not sure about your model, but here's what I would do. First, read the manual and instructions thoroughly, to see if there's some switch to activate the hose attachment. If that didn't work, I would take it in to a Vacuum Repair Shop and just let them take a look at it. If it's some switch, they will know and most likely show you without charge. If nothing seems to work, get an exchange on the unit, since it could be defective in some respect. Good luck to you, and hope this helps.

How do I fix my hoover that is not sucking up anything?


With your model tempo, the hose needs to be connected to the tube in the back (should have a door cover that flips open). Also check the suction path and change the bags or filters if needed

After using my attachments I have a hard time getting suction when using upright again - how do I get the suction on my upright? It's a Hoover blue widepath Tempo~ thank you


It may be clogged underneath the vacuum where the roller is. Take the bottom plate off and look into the intake port. There may be some blocking the port.
