Dyson DC 11 Broken Wand Clip

HiI have a Dyson DC11 vacuum cleaner. On the wand, there is a yellow clip that fits around the pipe and clips into the unit allowing the user to pick the vacuum cleaner up. My yellow clip has broken. Is there a way to take the wand apart so that I can slide a new clip into place or does it mean a replacement wand or specialist?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC14 - it sounds like this spring may have come out of the clip which secures the Telescope Reach wand in place. Normally the spring will locate behind the clip, keeping the wand locked securely onto the main body of the vacuum until you remove it for above-floor cleaning.

We'd be happy to talk you through replacing the spring - if you have further difficulty in doing this, you would also be able to order a replacement wand if needed.

When you have your DC14 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Dyson DC11 wand does not lock in place when extended for use, very frustrating!

Hi Susan, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC11's wand. It's important to make sure each section is extended fully - you should here the clips 'click' as they lock. If it doesn't seem to do this, it's worth checking to make sure none of the clips have been damaged in any way. If you can see damage, it may be necessary to replace the wand - you can order spares directly from

If you'd like some further help with this, you can reach our experts directly by calling the Dyson customer Helpline. Our numbers are 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

The clip or gasket which locks the crevice or other tool into the wand is broken & lost, can't find it listed as a spare part for dc01 absolute

The clip will not be listed as a repair part because it's not sold separately. You'll have to purchase a new wand to get the new clip.

My dyson exrenable tube wont lock in

Hi there, its Darran at Dyson.

Sorry to hear of the problem that you are experiencing with your Dyson vacuum cleaner.

If you are having trouble locating the wand handle back inside the hose, it could be that the hose itself is blocked. Remove the wand handle completely from the hose, then un-clip the hose from the base of the machine to check for blockages.

To ensure you are correctly stowing the wand handle, please check your user guide or our website at and visit the Support section.

Kind regards

The clip that holds the EL5 powerhead to the wand has broken (again). How does one fix this?

i found this part online- search for part # via an exploded parts diagram of your specific unit (via google)
i ordered 5 of them because it always breaks or pops out.
this is a nice machine with crappy parts.
sorry :(

No vaccum at the hose attachment, the main powerhead has vaccum

You may have a blockage somewhere. Take the U-Bend (next to the right-hand wheel if you stand behind the vacuum cleaner) off. It is attached to the vacuum with a rectangular-shaped clip - it's purple. It is the pipe that is attached under the long gray hose. After that take out the AI Valve (the pipe above the right-hand side wheel) that has two purple buttons to remove it. Take the wand off and look through it - you should see light coming through the other end even though the wand is not straight all the way. If you can't see light through the other end the blockage is in the wand. Stretch the hose out and make sure there are no dark spots inside - those would be blockages. If all else fails call the Dyson helpline, they'll help you.
