Generic problem for all Vacuums
Clogged, will not pickup Hose
Clogged, will not pickup Hose also clogged no suction

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I’m not sure if you have a canister or an upright but there are thing you can check on both machines, canisters – you can check the suction from the end of the hose and work your way back to the canister, start with the end of the hose, then remove the hose and check the suction on the vacuum – most clogs are in the hose – if you have a hose clog run a steel ball thru the hose to see if goes thru all the way if it does than check the bad and the filter, if those are ok you may have a bad motor. If it is an upright, make sure the height adjustment is correct and is adjusted correctly, then use the steel ball and run it thru the attachment hose to see if that is blocked or clogged. Then check the belt and the extension wands to see if there is a blockage there as well, if you have good brushes and the tone changes from high to low and the brushes are actually hitting the floor, then you may have a motor problem and then you might have to replace the motor or fan assm. I hope this was helpful.

Posibilities are streteched belt, suction leak or blockage. Check if there is suction at the end of the hose. Next check the hose from the rug nozzle is clear. If you can hold the brush roll by pushing against the bristles with a flat object change the belt.

There is no suction in the hose part, long part of hose is not cloged


Unplug the machine..now if you remove the attachment hose at the body of the vac and feel inside (to the right about an inch) their is a "suction cover" that rotates when the wand is removed (aka using atachments). The cover in your machine is NOT rotating correctly, so it does not get full suction. If you do get some suction from the hose then their is at least a 'small opening' because it has partially rotated. I was able to fix this problem by taking a large screwdriver (1.5 feet long, thick as a pen), inserting it into the small opening (on the suction cover, inside to the right at the top) and forcing the cover down all the way by lifting the screw driver up against the top of the body opening. Seems to have corrected the problem, but may reoccur. If you have NO suction at all then it has failed to rotate whatsoever, and Im not sure how to correct it.

No Suction


Your Power head is blocked with hair or dirt,,or the hose which connects the Upright with the power head is blocked.
Try taking a steel coat hanger apart (straighten it out) and then push it into the pickup hose to remove blockage.

Hose has no suction


Most uprights need to be in the up-right locked position to enable the hose pickup.

Getting suction to use attachments


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