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

Can't get the u-shape piece to fit

\015 On the back of the dc17, I'm suppose to connect the u-shape piece to the hose on one end and the solid piece on the other then lock the screw in the middle. \302\240Well, I called the help line, and they said it shouldn't be that difficult. \302\240My problem is that the u-shape piece will not line up to the opposite end, so I am not able to lock the screw. \302\240Very frustrating. \302\240Can anyone help or has experienced this problem?\015

U-Shaped piece I was in the hospital for a couple of nights and my 80 year old mother decided to go to my house and vacuum my house. When I went to get it out to vacuum the other night the u shaped part fell off. I guess my mom had somehow knocked it off. Now I cannot figure out where it goes. It is a plastic U-shaped piece. Can you help me? I sat for a hour trying to figure out where it goes.

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.

Hoover on off switch won't turn off. I have to unplug the vacuum to stop it. I have dismantled the handle and now I can't get the inditation in the handle to fit over the little silver knob. I saw there was an on/off switch under the handle that is controlled by a piece of the handle. #1 question for the manufacturer is why don't they put the switch on the outside instead of having gimicks that turn it on and off... arghhhhhhhh


Don't know what model you have, but sounds like you will need to replace the switch. As far as your question, you will have to contact the manufacture for an answer. We only provide solutions to your problem and a model number would have helped. ... Vacuums
