If you demand the absolute best in your vacuum cleaner, you can`t go wrong with the Kirby Avalir 2. This trusted solution is built to last, so it will deliver years of deep cleaning.
I just would not recommend this vacuum for older individuals or those suffering from arthritis. The reason why it is heavier is because it is mostly metal, whereas the Dyson is part metal, part plastic (well, I think the newer versions are more plastic than anything).

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
It’s unfortunate you’ve had to spend so much money already on repairing this machine. I know you’ve said you’ve already replace the belts and filters, but if you want you can check out a video we made on repairing the Hoover Windtunnel.
If you are looking for a reliable upright, at GoVacuum we’d recommend the Sebo X4 upright (http://www.govacuum.com/seauxseupvac.html). The machine is incredibly reliable and easy to maintain. Thus far, we haven’t had one warranty repairs come through our doors. The machine itself has a lifelong warranty on the belt because the machine automatically shuts off the motor if an obstruction is detected, preventing any undue stress on the motor or belt.
Now depending on how long you have had it would depend on whether your going to be charged for the repair, so check if you have any warranty left on it as this part would be covered by warranty, also this problem is known to dirt devil so they may repair it for free anyway, so your first option would be to contact them first and see what they come up with, if after doing this you dont want to pay for repair then you could get a local repair shop to remove this function from your cleaner by disengaging the self propelled motor so that it is just a normal vac, how ever this would be giving up and you would only be left with a normal vac.
the cost of repair would not be much so thats the way i would go.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
.My educated guess is that it’s either the switch or the power cord. Here are a couple of guides to help with diagnosis and repair…
.Hope this helps!!
