Kenmore Progressive no suction in floor mode

My kenmore progressive canister (Model# 21614) does not have suction while in floor mode (when the beater bar is not running). When the beater bar is on and in carpet mode, it seems to pick up everything fine.

If I remove the power mate floor piece and just use the wand alone or with attachments is it fine. So I know it has something to do with the power mate floor piece. The vacuum is fairly new and hasn't been used much, but its out of warranty b/c it was a floor model and on sale at a reseller.

Any suggestions

Here is a break down of your vacuum, Can't see anything there to stop suction. Sounds like something stuck in floor piece.

Thanks, but this doesn't have a break down of the floor piece, just the basic attachments, canister, hose, cord reel and extension wand.

I will just find someone who can service it.

Most vacuums that utilize a motorized beater bar have poor suction when the bar is not operating.
