Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for that.
Why do you suspect that there may be something missing?
Do others use the vacuum?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is nothing at the bottom of the handle tube. It looks like in the owners manual a flap covers the opening and that may be missing
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
yes there is a flap that is supposed to be there, it changes where the suction will come from. You can get that part and its easy to install.
