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.

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 :)
