Dyson DC22 Motorhead Canister Vacuum Bagless Cyclonic Vacuum\015 My son was using it last nite, said the vacuum was not picking anything up. I disconnected the turbine head from wand, found some blockage. Cleaned it out, put back together & still no suction. I noticed that when I took the cover off & plugged the hole where the little rubber piece was, it had perfect suction. So when I put the cover back on, no suction.\015

got the DC14 and it doesn’t seem to have much suction in the floor head, the hose still has good suction. I have checked all the paths for blockage and there is none.
.If your unit’s suction has decreased there could be several reasons.
.Firstly, the motor may be the problem. If you hear any noises while the machine is running, you should contact the original manufacturer for trouble shootingsolutions.
.Secondly, your vacuum may be in need of new parts. By changing either the brushroll or belts, you should be able to increase the quality of the suction.

.I eventual gave in to curiosity and removed the three screws in the top or the yellow removable dust collection tube and cyclone bit to see what was in there. The mechanism to release the flap at the bottom of the collection tube does not allow you to remove the lid completely but it does open far enough to get inside. I found the whole top section of the yellow plastic bit blocked by a big plug of compacted dust and a champagne cork. If you are willing to take the risk and have a torx 15 screwdriver handy it that part may be blocked. It did get a bit messy.
.If I was going to attempt the same procedure I’d remove the dust collection unit from the vacuum cleaner as I did before, but leave the clear tube attached and the emptying flap firmly closed to reduce the mess from the dust falling out the bottom while cleaning the top part.
