Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Vacuum only turns on in reclined position/pull out hose broken

\015 Vacuumed one room and it worked fine, used the pull out attachment to get into corners etc. Turned it off went to another room and now it only turns on in the reclined position and turns off when I try to use the pull out attachment. Also seems like it is blowing out instead of sucking in.. Please Help!!\015

Answers :

Per the Dyson Web Site I found the solution. Although I cleared all the filters/possible clogs the vacuum had over heated disabling the pull out attachment and power button except when in the reclined position. After clearing the filter and waiting an hour for it to cool it was back to working like normal.

My dyson slim vacuum doesn't switch from hose to floor mode. I thought the foot lever was broken. I realigned it but it doesn't switch now from floor mode to hose mode. I take out the hose and I can see the white part. I thought it should move as you go from upright to recline position of the handle.

I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch. When the reset button was pushed, it started up the vacuum, but the vacuum was not turned on in the house. It can only be turned on from in the garage and not on the actual hose. What is going on?

I have Optima, 12amp Eureka vacuum, Model 431, AXZ type and the extension hose for cleaning corners and edges --the plastic part that the attachments fit into has a piece broken off and tools don;t fit anymore. It looks like the hose attachment can be replaced--can it be and if so--where can I get a new hose attachment. It seems it is cheaply made of plastic and really shouldn't have broken a piece off.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off. Today I cleaned out the filters (they weren't bad) made sure nothing was obstructing the hoses or the spinning brush part.
