\015\012Clogged, will not pickup Hose also clogged no suction
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012I’m not sure if you have a canister or an upright but there are thing you can check on both machines, canisters – you can check the suction from the end of the hose and work your way back to the canister, start with the end of the hose, then remove the hose and check the suction on the vacuum – most clogs are in the hose – if you have a hose clog run a steel ball thru the hose to see if goes thru all the way if it does than check the bad and the filter, if those are ok you may have a bad motor. If it is an upright, make sure the height adjustment is correct and is adjusted correctly, then use the steel ball and run it thru the attachment hose to see if that is blocked or clogged. Then check the belt and the extension wands to see if there is a blockage there as well, if you have good brushes and the tone changes from high to low and the brushes are actually hitting the floor, then you may have a motor problem and then you might have to replace the motor or fan assm. I hope this was helpful.

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom
