Blocked suction The FLOOR suction line (Hose) is clogged. I Can vaceum the floor, but it will not pick up anything because the hose to the bagless canister is blocked. I can switch from floor to hose and can vaceum furniture. it will not pick up off the floor. I have tried running a wire down/up the hose. I Can feel the blockage, but I cannot get it out. I am afraid to pull the flem hose out as I do not know how it is attached at each end.

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.

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
