SOURCE: No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

SOURCE: hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but

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

SOURCE: On my DC18 there is

  • I actually answered a question just like this the other day. On the DC18 the switch is automatic. When the vacuum is upright the suction is automatically to the hose.
  • When you tilt the handle back the suction is automatically to the floor.
  • If you took things apart and cleaned them and have no suction through the hose when the vacuum in the upright position then this is a manufacturers defect.
  • The way I know this is for the other persons issue I called Dyson directly because I wanted to see why I could not see a switch and they told me there was none, it was automatic.
  • Here is the good news. Dyson offers a full 5 year warranty and the DC18 has only been out for 4 years. So every DC18 on the market is still under a full warranty.
  • What Dyson told me is this. Contact Dyson and they will see if their is a repair center near you and if so then you can drop it off there for a 100% free warranty repair.
  • If there is no repair shop in your area then they will ship it both ways and repair it 100% free on Dyson.

  • Here is there contact information.
  • Here is the link to choose the country should you be outside the USA. http://www.dyson.com/ If you choose that link the when the page loads got to the lower right of the screen to the fine print and click on "contact us" and the information will show up.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. If it doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, it's possible that there's a blockage in the system, and you may need to give the filters a wash. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1231&product=DC28-ANIMAL

    The correct way to wash the filters is shown in the video below. Under normal use, this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without any detergents, and ensure the filters are totally dry before replacing them - this may take up to 24 hours.

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1456&product=DC28-ANIMAL

    Hopefully, by clearing any obstructions and washing the filters, you should be able to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've tried this and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you recommend the best course of action.

    I have a kenmore model 116.25512506. The roller is spinning but no suction from the head. The attachments have suction but not the head. How do I remove bottom cover to check for blockage?


    Is the suction control plastic ring shut?. If it's wide open you get almost no suction. See picture.
    25823072-bhx41vpbxgcw2fhkwng0wody-1-0.jpg If that is closed check the long metal wand. Disconnect from the beater bar head and check the whole length of the wand and look into the beater bar head opening for something plugging it.

    No suction when using wand on electrolux precision upright


    There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
    1. Unplug the vacuum.
    2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
    3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
    4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
    5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
    6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
    7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
    8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

    My DC17 hose has no suction and is constricting


    You have a blockage in the wand - take the wand off of the back of the machine, separate the wand from the hose by pushing the red button where the hose is attached to the wand. Hold the wand up in the air and look trough it. If you don't see light coming through the other end you have a blockage in the wand. Take a long object like a stick or a metal hanger and remove the blockage. I am confident that this is where the blockage is but...if you can see through the wand the blockage is in the u-bend, but the hose won't constrict then...remove the u-bend which is attached to the vac at the bottom next to the long gray hose - it is attached to the machine with a plastic screw - turn the plastic screw 45 degrees anti-clockwise and clear the blockage from the u-bend.

    Dyson hose looses suction


    You have a blockage in the wand. Stand behind the machine and:
    1) Remove the u-bend which is located NEXT to the right-hand side wheel, NOT above it. It connects from the bottom of the long gray hose to next to the right-hand side wheel. It is attached to the machine with a rectangular-shaped clip - push the clip and pull the pipe down.
    2) Look through the wand if you can (DC07 wand is bent) - if you can't see the ground you have a blockage in either the hose or the wand
    3) Remove the hose and separate it from the wand - hold the wand up into the air and look through it - if you can't see light coming through the other end, there is a blockage in the wand. Use a long object like a stick or a metal hanger to remove the blockage.
    4) If the wand is clear, stretch the hose out and look for dark spots - those are the blockages. Again use a long object to remove the blockage - be careful not to damage the hose, you don't want to buy a new one.

    Performance indicator light


    check to make sure the bag isn't being sucked into the air filter. open the access door where the bag is and you'll see the air filter at the bottom. to check, leave the door open while you would see the performance indicator light on, and then pull up the bag. this is one of many solutions i'm sure to the performance indicator problem.
