There is a spot that sticks up on the holder for the wheels, the hole in the spring goes there, then it fits between the holder and the base asm.

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.

I had the same problem, from right out of the box. Now that I just threw mine out, I see this site that indicates there's a fix for it:
And search for other sites isung "dyson grinding" or similar.
Since I was an early adopter (had one as soon as they came stateside), I did not have the benefit of countless others having the same problem, I just attributed it to a junky design, since so much else about this vacuum was poorly designed, like the seals, hoses, etc.
Give them a call, and good luck! I might rescue mine from the heap and do the same.

there's a mechanism inside the steamvac that should switch the mode automatically when you press the handle release and pull the handle down for the vacuum mode... it's automatic! it took so long to figure out because I kept looking for the switch when it was upright and didn't look as I was using it.
