Having problems with your Dyson DC18 all floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Decreased wand suction
\015 The hose is clear yet when you take the wand out, there is no suction\015
The blockage could be in the wand itself or in the entry duct of the machine. Take the wand off, look through it and if you can't see light coming through the other end, there is something stuck in the wand - take it out with a long object like a metal hanger...if the wand is clear, call the Dyson helpline - they will do a thorough blockage troubleshoot over the phone and clear the blockage.
