Vacuum will not pick up dirt. Its a Eureka the BOSS ...

Resolved Question:

Vacuum will not pick up dirt. It is a Eureka the BOSS Smartvac, model 4870, type GZ. It's plugged in and comes on, checked the belt, checked the bag, checked switch for floors. Removed one small clog in side hose from brush. Brush is turning but seems to sling dirt around instead of pick it up. Could there be a clog elsewhere?
