I assume you're referring to the tube in the power nozzle. Unless you're acquainted with taking the pn apart and putting it back together properly, don't try.
Disconnect wand from pn, get a pair of needle-nose or long nose pliers, and try to reach the "something". Do so gently so as to not poke hole/s in tube.
You can also attach the hose to the exhaust port of the vacuum, attach the crevice tool, and attempt to blow out the clog.

Runs but no suction. Something is clogging airway inside the machine


If the bag is not full, filter is not plugged, bag area is sealed tightly, then likely something is caught inside and plugging the hose or the intake tubing.

There isNo suction on Kirby sentria


  1. Put the hose and see if suction is good. If it is - you may have had nozzle installed wrong or brush roll may be worn out (bristles must be sticking out of the nozzle by about 1/8 of an inch).
  2. If there is no suction with the hose either - check if bag is not overfilled to the point where dirt is blocking the fill tube hole.
  3. If two above are fine - something must be blocking the air passage from the fan to the bag. Check for clogs in the fill tube (tube inside the cloth bag) and mini emptor (bag bottom plastic part) and also see if there is something blocking the exhaust on the vacuum. You may not even see it so use a piece of wire. Once I found a sock there and it was so close to the fan that I could not see it in the hole and was only able to get it out using a homemade hook made from a coat hanger.

My extension tubes were put in incorrectly and I can;t unstick them. Suction is not great think something is stuck in tube.


Hello There! I had the same exact problem. Seems something was wrong or stuck in the tubes.
Finally, when I kept trying to clean it out, the tube ripped off and I found a clog of dust in it. So, try getting replacement tubes & it'll work for sure!
I wish I helped you! Let me know if you need anymore help! Don't forget to rate! :)

My dyson dc25 pipe has lost suction..is something stuck in the pipe?


We had the exact same issue. Turns out my wife had inadvertantly sucked up a magnet that was the same size ans the tube. Hold the tube up to a light source. If you cannot see any light, there is something stuck in it. To dislodge the item, stretch out a wire hanger and run it through the tube. It should lislodge the item. Dyson's are great but are very tempermental!

No suction of the water from carpet after soap is applied


Hello :

1: A vacuum pulls air through the bag, then through the tube attachment and then through the base (with the spinning agitator brush).

2:Check for signs of suction. Remove the tube attachment from its cradle and, after turning on the vacuum, put your hand to the end of the tube. Is there any suction at all? If there is a little bit of suction then you may have a clogged air tube.

3:Check the vacuum bag. It may be very full. If it is then remove the bag and replace it with a new bag. Check the suction power again. Has the suction improved?

4:Check the tube attachment. Completely remove it from the vacuum. You usually have to twist and pull the tube attachment out of place at the point where it connects to the back of the vacuum. Check the suction power again. This time you place your hand on the vacuum right where the tube used to come out of the back of the vacuum. Has the suction improved?

5:If the suction power has improved then you probably have a clogged tube. Dog hair, people hair, leaves and more can get lodged in the tube slowly over time and then suddenly block the tube completely.

6:Clean the tube by first trying to shake the debris out of the tube. If this does not work then go outside and run a hose through the tube. Use a pressure nozzle if you have one. Run the hose through one end of the tube. Then run it through the other end. Repeat until the debris is disloged. Dry the tube and then reattach to the vacuum.

7:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

8:Check the air hose in the base of the vacuum. This hose is usually pretty short and you can see if there is any blockage. If you see blockage then try to remove it. You may need to reach into the hose with a tool (like a screw driver or something long).

9:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

10:If you made it to this step then you may have a problem with the motor on your vacuum. If this is the case then you will need to take the vacuum in to a repair shop.

Things you will need :
1 Philips screw driver
1 flat head screw driver

Warning :


# Always unplug electrical devices before you work on them.

# Never work on electrical devices around water or when you are wet.

I hope this will help .

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet


If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.
