I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I have a Kirby G4. I have noticed the last few days when trying to vacuum that it is blowing more than it is sucking up. I put on a new bag to make sure it wasn't too full.
