SOURCE: Dyson 07 won't stand up

I talked to Dyson support (they are open 6 days a week, try them if you're stuck)

Turn the vacum on it's side. Look on the side that has Bare floor/carpet control. There is a hose with two yellow buttons. Detach the hose. On the square side, look for a black button. Depress the button, then release. On the square side, slide the square up until it locks in place.

Now try to see if it will go upright (it should)

Finally, re-attach the hose.

SOURCE: dyson 18 losing suction

Check the HEPA filter if it has one. This bit of foam gets clogged over time and significantly reduces the suction especially if you've been vacuuming a lot of very dusty areas i.e. dust from building work etc. Just wash the filter with lots of water and leave to dry before reinserting.

solved this today by folding the upright part back as far as it would go, and wiggling it a little. It clicked back into place.

There is a flip lever that locks it in place and redirects the airflow to the hose when you put it in the upright position. It binds, then eventually breaks. I'm not having much luck finding replacement parts to fix mine.

SOURCE: Dyson Rollerball wont clikc into unpright position.

I've just had the same problem! The small metal poles either side of the red push bar at the bottom of the hoover should both be in a groove/runner. The problem is that one or both of the metal poles has popped out of the runner and is stuck in one of the holes next to the runners. Gently pull the red bar from the hoover and pop the metal attachment back into the groove. Problem solved :)

Dyson dc40 won't stay upright


Hi Wendy, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our current generation of Dyson Ball upright vacuums uses a pedal-free stabiliser mechanism. When you've finished using the machine, stand it upright firmly. You should hear two clicks - the first is the suction changeover valve redirecting the suction to the hose and wand. The second click is the upright lock mechanism securing the body in place.

As long as you've stood the machine up firmly enough, you shouldn't have any difficulty with it not remaining upright - this may take some getting used to if you've previously owned a vacuum cleaner with a pedal-based system.

If you would like any further help with your machine you can reach our experts directly by calling the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson suction problem


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson. If the cleaner won't pick up via the cleaner head and will not stand upright, the valve carriage needs realigning. This is simple to do - please follow the steps shown in the video below.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice with your machine, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

I have a Dyson DC14 upright vacuum cleaner that after cleaning out I am unable to stand the vacuum upright so that I can use the tools any idea of the problem?

This procedure should solve the problem. Before you start it, please make sure the machine is unplugged.

First, remove the airway inspection. It’s located at the side of your cleaner.

Next, hold the main body of the cleaner halfway between the floor and upright position. Then, place two fingers in the square hole left by the airway inspection (you should be able to see a round hole at the base) then pull that plastic piece sharply upwards. You should hear a click as you do so.

Your machine should now stand upright and you may also notice an improvement in the suction, too.

If this procedure hasn’t worked, please call our experts on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).


Many thanks

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


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

My dyson 17 wand does not work. When it is on and you stand it upright it turns off


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the suction is good from the base but not from the wand, this would indicate that there is a blockage in the wand handle or hose. To test this, stand the machine upright and release the wand handle. Switch the machine on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If its poor, remove the wand handle from the hose and try the suction at the top of the hose. If its good here, then there is a blockage in the wand handle.

If the sction from the top of the hose is poor, you can remove the hose to check this for any splits or blockages. If it needs to be replaced, you can buy a replacement online at www.dyson.com.

Alternatively, should you any further help or advice with your Dyson, please contact our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

If it won't pop back into the cradle that holds it in standing position, take off the entire hose and check for long items such as pens and pencils.
