Check that there is nothing blocking the hose and that there are no obstructions around any of the filters, clean and replace filters too if possible. If you still find you have less than optimum suction , you may need to replace your motor. But it sounds like there may be a blockage or an air leakage somewhere in the unit.Good luck.

My dryson dc40 beater bar will not spin and there is no suction


The brush bar motor or one of the switches may be defective. If the brush is not spinning it will not pick up anything from carpet leading many to think it has no suction. Feel for suction down by the brush bar. If you have no suction it may have a clog or need new filters. Make sure the changeover valve that switches suction from floor to tools is working properly.

My vacuum doesn't have any suction from the floor, only from the handheld attachments. I've cleaned all of the filters with no luck. Any suggestions?


With the vacuum plugged in and running, make sure the brush is spinning and that the brushes on it and long enough that they brush against your hand (or in real terms your carpet). If it is not spinning, replace the brush roll. This will also drastically increase the cleaning ability of it since the new roll will spin faster and the longer brushes will agitate your carpet better.

The machine will not suction - it will spray and spin the brushes but will not suction - the power is going to the machine, but it will not suction.


Disconnect the suction hose. While running, check the suction port if it works, by putting a piece of paper. If the paper is taken in, then it is oK. Now, check the suction Hose for breaks or opening before the suction head. Breaks or opening breaks the suction power at the suction head. Loose connection between the suction pipe and the suction port also must be check as this will also cause the same
problem. You may need to replace the suction hose
