  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.

I presume the motor is running, take the front brush roller off and check the fan is still intact. Possibly broken fan.

COntrol of the connection of the bag at the bottom of the machine that must be against the housing rotated are, there is also a microswitch used for safety, but there is a second micro switch that sits in front of the vacuum cleaner housing near the air intake as a push button which is operated next near to the hoseconnection by a pin.

You are referring to the green led light on the front of the machine that tells you the brush is rotating? this is operated by a small magnet on the brush roll, when rotating it generates a small current to bring the light on. Remove the brush roll and check for damage behind the green led inside the case, also check for the magnet on the brush roll, ensure it is not missing and the brush roll is in the correct way round, magnet needs to be at green led end (ie to the left)
Magnet is fitted flush within the brush roll close one end and is around 6mm 1/4" diameter.
Green light not working will not affect the machine in any way.
