Shark Navigator (Vacuum) acting like its clogged.

I have of course checked all the hoses, emptied the canister, cleaned the screen in the canister, cleaned all the filters and check the brush for blockages. These are all clean and clear.

When I turn the machine on it sounds perfect for 2 seconds then it sounds just like putting your hand over the hose with its "Never lose suction" technology. It still sucks but not as well as it should.

I don't want to be without a vacuum sending it in for a couple weeks so any help would be appreciated.

There seems to be several models in that series.... can you narrow the model down for me.

I couldn't find much info on the NV46. A lot on the NV22. Similar models.

When you run the vac with the hose unplugged.... do you get the same problem ?

Do you have a long, flexible tube or something like it? I've discovered clogs in parts you can't see or reach and pushing something long thru the whole thing, ended up finding it and pushing it out.
Just a suggestion.
