Hi There,
Alec from VacuumSpot here. The problem is relatively common, there is a fault in the part that is called the undercarriage. It is a bit of a tricky one to fix but only requires one part that costs about $60 (Australian) from memory.

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece.
