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

Dyson won't go back into upright position to engage suction

\015 My daughter was using our Dyson, switching the bottom right knob from bare floor to carpet repeatedly, without first turning off the vacuum and putting it in the upright position to do so. Now the Dyson won't go back into the full upright position to engage suction. Is there anyway for me to fix this myself?\015

Answers :

The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.

Currently my dyson does not work when in the upright position. When I pull the handle back, it will run, but the suction is not very good at all. I tried washing the filter, but that didn't work. Sometimes it works for awhile, but then the problem occurs after the machine has been used for awhile. What do you think the problem is?

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning.

Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

LOSING SUCTION IT APPEARS WHEN IN UPRIGHT POSITION, ALTHOUGH SUCKING (TO SOME DEGREE) IT THROWS BACK SMALL PIECES TO THE BACK OF THE VACUUM OPNTO THE CARPET BEHIND, AND THE CONTAINER HOLDING THE STUFF ISNT WHIRLING AROUND THE CONTAINER. I WONDER IF THE PASSAGE TO THE WIND TUNNEL IS BLOCKED, AND OF COURSE THAT IS THE PART I CANNOT GET TO, AS IT NEEDS A SPECIAL TOOL TO UNSCREW THE BACK OF THE VACUUM.

My Dyson DC25 got stuck and wouldn't return to the upright position, I figured out that one side had jumped the track and gotten stuck in the square hole below the track. I did not want to break the plastic to force it back, so I removed the screw on the right side that was holding the kick stand on and removed the kick stand, also a spring thing came out. Problem is, now I have no idea how to re-install the kickstand. Can't find a technical manual or video anywhere, it can't be very difficul

My dyson DC17 will not turn on unless the handle is pulled back.(into the vacuuming position) The attachment hose will not work at all (0 suction thru it). I've checked the hose and made sure there is no obstruction. Any ideas?


Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar. It is normal that the brush motor works only when the handle is pulled back in the vacuuming position - that's the way it's made. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
