Dirt devil vac no longer suctioning

Our Vac is not suctioning very well through the hose or the toe kick. We've changed bag and nothing seems to be clogging. Any ideas for trouble shooting? Thanks much! Lin

Those are inexpensive enough that it might be cheaper to just pick up a new one.

Having said that: Is something clogged? Has the fan/impeller broke off from the motor shaft? Does it still sound the same as it did?

Coach is only 1 year old with 10k miles

Thanks for your reply. Seems like we should get more life out of it but maybe they just don't last that long? Need to check on fans as you describe. Sounds same, just quieter....
