Question about Dyson DC18 all floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
When I recently plugged it in there was a little puff of smoke that came from the outlet - Now nothing happens when I press the on/off switch - Is there a fuse or reset switch somewhere to check?
SOURCE: Dyson upright
hi this is an expensive repair and would probably be cheaper to buy new one the problem you have is with the motor bearings seizing its expensive to repair because when dyson made thes vacs they were made so you need special tool to take them apart so replacing the motor would require calling a dyson bloke out as i found out with mine when my switch failed i tried removing and replacing myself but when the bloke came out he used a thin piece of metal down the side of switch to press button to release switch after i payed him to do this 2 months later i got your problem and called them back they tryed selling me new one as the repair was 50 quid more than a new vac.
Hope this is some help sorry i couldnt give you good news

The power switch may need to be replaced. Call the Dyson helpline - they will give you the location of an authorized Dyson dealer in your area who will be able to replace the switch.

you need to check the clean out ports 1 directly under the hose on the bottom and the other where the removable filter is

Same problem here. We noticed a loss of suction for about 5 minutes and the suction stopped. Beater bar still rotates but ZERO suction.

My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty
