SOURCE: no suction
Ok first thing to do is remove & clean the 2 piece premotor filter or purchase new.
Now remove soleplate from bottom of machine to do this rotate the 3 plastic screws to unlock position. Lift sole plate off now remove any blockagers or fluff that may be built up over the brush roller.
Remove hair from brush roll using scissors.
Check short clear hose for blockages & any damage rips or tares if it is damaged purchase new hose.
Now look at belts & rotate brush roller it should turn relatively easy if it is difficult to turn by hand remove the brush roller & pull off the end caps the axle will come out with one of the caps.
Check the roller bearings clean away dust build up replace end caps & axle spin roller holding on to end cap if freely to spin refit back on to machine.
If its stiff to rotate you will need new roller.
Now pull off the 2 inspection ports check them for bits of paper etc especialy the (U) shaped port at bottom rear of machine this can contain pens pencills stones all sorts of items that hinder the suction.
Now check the long flexi hose & metal wand for any obstructions.
If after all this machine is still not working correctly go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/
On this site you will find Dyson service manuals covering poor suction, clutch,motor, etc.

The belt could be damaged. Call the Dyson helpline. They will listen to the noise and troubleshoot it for you. If it is the brushbar motor they will have a repair dealer look at it. If it is the belt that is damaged, their solution will depend on whether your machine is still under warranty or not.

Lights are 12 volts.
The motor has taps on it to pull 12 volts rather than 120 volts for the lights, uses the motor as a transformer.
Should be black and white to the motor from the switch, believe the switch breaks the black wire. White wire should be neutral. I can't remember colors for the wires to the lights. Would expect it to be the white wire and then the "tap" wire to be red.
One crazy way to do it, is to hook up wires, leave the light bulbs out, turn on power, and check voltage at the bulb socket with a voltmeter. (This is one of those things they tell you on television to only let a professional do, do not attempt at home.)
