This is a generation 4 tech drive it doesn't pick up well at all please help!!!!
These machines are virtuall impossible to block,
If the motor is running, ie you can hear it and the front brush roll is rotating, indicated by the green LED (light) on the left hand side then I would suggest the problem is with the bag or fan, Check the bag, take the inner bag out completely and turn the machine on, you should get good air flow out of the hose connection where the bag attached. if it is ok try a new bag.
Note the type of bag makes a big difference use only kirby bags, not cheap copies from the market.
If poor air flow, Large debris is captured at the bottom of the outer bag assembly, check this is clear by removing the outer bag, undo the clip at the top, twist at the bottom to detach from the vacuum, check inside for debris or blockage.
If it is not the bag check the condition of the fan, remove the front brush assembly and inspect the fan, usually a good indicator of a damaged fan is excessive noise.
