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

Vaccuum shuts off when i turn the brush off to use either on hardwood or to use the wand, and also when i put the vacuum upright.


Answers :

In the crease where the vacuum handle meets the vacuume the cord may be getting pinched off so check that first and if it is make sure there is no damage to the cord so that you don't get electrocuted.

I have a DC 17. In the middle of vacuuming the vacuum stopped working when it was in the upright position. It only works when the head is down and i am using the bar. I can not use the extension bar, becasue when I put the vacuum upright it shuts off. Where is the problem?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.\012 \012 Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17's main suction motor is protected by a thermostat which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage, and the filter may also need a wash ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Oreck vacuum cleaner will only stay on in the upright position. If I try to recline it to vacuum, it shuts off...put it back up and it turns back on. Of course I can't vacuum in the upright position...what do I do?


It sound as if you have a short in the cord or it has come loose from the motor you can take it part by removing the four screws in the buttom of the base plate to see if any of the wires are loose. ... Oreck Vacuums

I have a Kenmore Progressive Upright Vacuum - Purple, and it worked just fine. I emptied the canister (like always) and put it back in place. I turned on the vacuum to it immediately shutting down (motor) and only the lights come on. There is no movement/noise/suction at all! Any suggestions? I have tried everything. I have no idea why it did this.


Make sure that something didn't fall into the fan assembly in the base when the canister was removed. The motor should have an overload reset switch. Try moving the motor manually (power plug out) to make sure that it isn't bound up. ... Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced


There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

I need a Dyson DC 17 Total Clean exploded parts diagream that shows the switch assembly. There are two small springs and a small plastic part that were loose inside the switch assembly.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

The vacuum won't start. I used it for about an hour and then turned it off and when I went to turn it back on ..there was no response. I cleaned every compartment on the machine and it's still not working. I also tried using a different outlet in the house. I've waited 24 hours thinking maybe it might have been just the vacuum over heating, but it's still not working.

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 removed the brush from bottom of the vacuum to remove hair from the bristles. When I re-assembled the vacuum, there was no longer suction. Also, the vacuum no longer stands upright when not in use. It's like something is blocking the upright portion from locking.

I was in the middle of using my vacuum when it quite on me. I tried multiple things including letting it cool off for a while as I was using it to vacuum my car outside and it was pretty hot. I also dismantled it according to the directions and looked for blockages and didn't find any and lastly I cleaned out the brush and put it back on. I am out of solutions. The vacuum is not that old; we have only had it for a few months. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You, Karen

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
