.As for no suction through the hose, I have to ask… are you sure your vacuum motor is working at all? Even with the hose stored away, the machine still relies on suction through that hose. If you’re sure the motor is working, then either you’ve got a blockage that you haven’t yet found (there’s at least one inspection port, a sort of U tube at bottom right of machine, that you need to check), or it could be that you’ve got a hole in the flexible hose (which opens only when the hose is extended)..
.Sorry if this is a bit garbled, but I’m puzzled by your problem. If you want to come back with more details I’ll try again for you!
The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.
If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the “on” position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth.
The beater bar motor turn-on mechan
Normally when the motor is easily moved back and forth means that it have a proper lubrication,proper alignment and no clogs.
When the motor and the belt is OK the problem could be on electrical wiring and switch.
If found electrical switch burned out you need to replaced it because when the switch is burn the contact of that switch is open even you turn it ON.that’s why the motor is not function because the voltage is not pass through the circuit because of open switch.You need to replaced it.
And check some fuses if any and other burned electrical wire.Replaced it also.
