Dyson DC 18 Model won't stand upright on it's own

In the middle of vacuuming, it suddenly won't stand upright on it's own and consequently, there is no suction in the wand.

Please help.

Thanks

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.

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.

It seems they want you to buy a new one instead of supplying parts to fix the **** ones they sell you.

Dyson dc25 will not stand up


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC25 won't stand upright, it's likely that the stabiliser pedal needs to be realigned. This is simple to do by following the steps shown in our video guide:

The brush bar wont spin on my dyson dc 25... i


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.

When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.

If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Won't stand upright again


My Dyson DC 25 animal had this problem earlier today, all of a sudden it wouldn't go back into it's upright position. I looked on the bottom and the red pedal has two metal pegs which are supposed to be in a hook shaped track. one peg had slipped into a hole outside of the track (leaving a little scratch indicating the path it had taken), and all I had to do was wrestle it out of that hole and back in place.

My Dyson upright suddenly won't stay in the upright position. It appears that a little rubber piece has fallen out of position.


- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square
hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole
