Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar. It is normal that the brush motor works only when the handle is pulled back in the vacuuming position - that's the way it's made. So, when you say "my DC17 won't turn on", I'm not sure if you mean the vac motor, the brush motor, or both. If the vacuum motor won't turn on, then you've got a problem I can't help you with.
As for no suction through the hose, I have to ask... are you sure your vacuum motor is working at all? Even with the hose stored away, the machine still relies on suction through that hose. If you're sure the motor is working, then either you've got a blockage that you haven't yet found (there's at least one inspection port, a sort of U tube at bottom right of machine, that you need to check), or it could be that you've got a hole in the flexible hose (which opens only when the hose is extended).
Sorry if this is a bit garbled, but I'm puzzled by your problem. If you want to come back with more details I'll try again for you!
