Well you did not state what model and brand this is, but usually if the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll gets clogged, then you lose suction. If you can't figure it out, usually there is a year warranty, take it in for warranty service.

Why is my hoover agility not sucking up water


It is likely the recovery tank lid is loose. This means the suction is loosing. Worst case is the suction pump is faulty.
Look at this manual in the troubleshooting section.

I can run my dc17 to clean my floors but when I put it upright to use the wand it turns off


I called Dyson and they walked me thru the process of making sure nothing was blocking the airflow and suction. Everything seemed fine (not blocked). We couldn't figure out anything on the phone and I was still having the same problem.

Trying to figure out the solution, I removed (entirely) the filter that you're supposed to clean every 6 months and ran the vacuum (I cleaned this filter 2 months ago). It worked! I cleaned the filter (again!) and let the vacuum run and it seemed fine.

I can understand why they won't instruct you to completely remove the filter but it would save a lot of time if they just had you check ALL the options.

I hope this helps!

Hoover turbo power 3100 is loosing suction


The suction that is lost is usually from a plugged up inlet to the filter bag. Check all areas the debries go through for you will find a spot clogged up especially at the bends were it catches all the time causing this problem

This video is for replacing the clutch & belts, but it also shows how to take out the hose underneath & inspect it for holes or damage to see if that's causing suction issue http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner loss of suction


HI If the cleaner is loosing suction make sure to check all inspection tubes and the dirt channel hoses after the spinning brush. Also check the main hose for any clogging. One of the worst faults of this model is clogging hoses. Hope that helps you.

Bower moter flywheel has ripped loose. No suction and the brushes don't turn. Cheap design. Mine lasted 13 months. Just out of warranty.

You checked the belt, but I bet it has stretched and won't drive the brush roll under load like it should. Belts only last a few months the stretch and should be replaced. Iff you have suction at the hose, then it has to be down below, either belt/brush roll, or the inlet by the brush roll is clogged.
