HOW DO I SWITCH MY GENIE PB/15 BLOWER/VAC TO SUCTION?

\015 I just asked a question a couple fo hours ago about the little paper liner inside, asked if I was supposed to remove the liner for wetsuction, but now I can't figure out how to get the Vac out of blower mode and into suction mode!\015\012\015\012There's no switch to flip, as far as I can see, but there are two 'holes', a top one on the actual blower apparatus (which attaches to the top of the yellow 'drum' ) and a lower one that the hose fits neatly into. Maybe this has something to do with it?\015

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
