Dc17 will not start after blockage cleared
\015 I cleared a blockage at the lower U-shaped tube and allowed it to cool down, but it still will not start\015
I cleared a blockage at the tip of the tube which I had noticed...it had not heated up or anything, I just noticed it was not picking up well, so I cleared it out. but after I cleaned it out, it would not start again. I don't know how to diagnose the problem since it will not start...could be the wire, or anything. So how do I proceed now?

No suction I've only had my vacuum for a couple of months and it seem I have a similar problem but there is no clear blockage. It seems like I don't have adequate suction that reaches the accessory hoses nor the main one. I'm not sure where to start. I've taken the darn thing apart but I can't see any obvious malfunction. Any suggestions?
If you have low suction at the end of the hose, then you either have a clog in the hose or a clogged filter. Take the hose off and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end.

I have an older model fantom vacuum (model TH56SK 00) that I was given without the manual. It is whistling and stamped on top is "whistle = blockage check manual" which of course I can't do, but I need to find and clear the blockage. I need to clear the blockage now, but would like to obtain the manual for future issues.

I have a cannister (Animal something...) Today, it didn't sound right - like a blockage. I took out the filter - seemed OK; I looked for a blockage - found none. I continued to vacuum, but it wasn't picking up. Then, I stopped again, and I found a blockage (cat toy mouse) right at the end of the hose (attachment end.) I cleared, and I turned back on - nothing. Completely dead. It is one year old, just about exactly. Desperate, Sharon Tracy

I have a Dyson 17, the Absolute Brand special for pet hair. I think I have a blockage in the hose. Symptoms are: spewing out fuzz balls and small particles. I have checked all the blockage sites recommended by Dyson and all are clear except a small flexible transparent hose, 6 or 7 inches long, curled up underneath the cleaner head/brush bar unit. Any ideas? I've tried to pull out the stuff stuck in there, but I'm afraid to perforate the hose and I don't know any way to disconnect it.
Try dropping something like marbles into the hose and shake it up and down, may loosen it up enough to draw through.hope this helps you out. ... Vacuums

Motor just makes 4 or 5 small clicking noises when you pull the trigger, then stops. The little lights illumintae around the "max" button as well. However, the motor does not engage in the slightest. There is no blockage at all. I have owned the vac for 10 months and know the sounds of blockage and clear them immediately. I just used it in the morning, plugged it back in and it has not worked since. Any ideas?

I have a DC17 which is only one year old. Today I lost suction and called for assistance. A Dyson technician told me to pull off the wand and see if it is clear. It was clogged so cleared out the obstruction. My filter was cleaned more than 24 hours ago. The vacuum still has no suction. Is it dead, any other suggestions. Please help.

I have a Kenmore 116.36932 (upright-bagless vacuum) that the motor protector by-pass valve has opened. I've clean out the area between the agitator brush where the flexible extension hose starts. There was some blockage there. I checked the rest of the system (extenstion hose, back filter area, pipe area to canister and area to side filter. I took the 2 filters out and the by-pass valve is still open. Where else could there be a blockage that I can take apart to clean and put back together
I have a Eureka Power Plus vacuum, model 4702, type A. To start off, it never really had great suction. Marginal at best. Then today I was vacuuming and smelled something burning and turned off the vacuum. At that point, smoke started pouring out from the bottom of the vacuum so I layed it on it's side and the smoke cleared but I never found the source. Is it safe to turn on again after I let it cool down or is my vacuum "shot?"

When switching the vacuum (DC17 Animal) over to the hard surface setting (so the beater brush is not spinning), the vacuum shuts off. I cleaned the dust bin and checked the filter. I also cleared the beater brush of hair or debris that was wrapped around it. It still shuts off. Ideas? Thanks.
