When I use the wand attachment on my Dyson Slim, the hose collapses in on itself and closes up - no air flow at all.

The thoe or the wand is clogged. Remove the hose at the machine end, reverse it and turn the machine on. This should **** the blockage out, the way it got in. If you hear the motor straining, it's still clogged. I've already taped a small hook, like a screen door hook onto a broomstixk and fished into the blockage to remove it. Be carefol. If you puncture the hose by pulling too hard, the hose will be ruined. Tahe your time and look for something unecpected, like a toothpick or a LEGO piece. They and vacuum cleaner friendly.

How do I hook up the furniture brush attachment?


I have the same one. I am assuming that you are using the air turbine brush attachment that came with the vacuum. There really isn't anything special to it. You can either stick it on the end of the wand, or remove the wand and insert it directly on the end of the hose. It appears that it is supposed to 'click' into something but that is not the case on the DC17 model. It does click into the hose and/or handle of different models as shown in this video.

Dyson attachment


Dear Anon, I'm not familiar enough with the Dyson units to know exactly what the stair attachment is or what it looks like. If it is an attachment to connects to the end of the hose then it should come off the same way it went on. I usually use a twist/pull method to get these types of attachments off of the wands. If this method fails try getting something metal, very flat, that can be used to slide along the side of the wand striking the flat side of the attachment connector. This action sometimes loosens the connector enough to allow it to be removed.
If these methods don't work for you, you may have to break down and take to a vac repair shop and ask a repair tech to help you. Good luck!

The telescoping wand on my Dyson DC 25 will not retract back into the hose.


Hi Nina, it's Jack at Dyson.

Difficulty collapsing the wand can mean that the plastic handgrip section hasn't been correctly placed on the machine. When you replace the wand on the machine, make sure the handgrip section clips onto the main body and is down as far as it will go.

It's also a good idea to make sure that the hose isn't twisted, as a twisted hose can create resistance as you try to collapse the wand. Remove the wand again and allow the hose to untwist itself fully before attempting to replace the wand on the machine.

I'm confident these steps should resolve the issue, but if you would like some further guidance after you've given this a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson dc28 toubleshooting wand


Can you disconnect the hose from both ends of the unit?
I generally push a broom handle down a clogged hose, and second broom handle if needed!

You can also attach a shop vac hose to the shop vac exhaust and blow it out using the exhaust of the shop vac.

Maybe you sucked up a dryer sheet or plastic bag. Empty the unit completely and look at all the possible portals where items have to travel through.

Hi, my Dyson slim does not have any suction in the wand/hose. The vacuum itself works, just not the hose. I have unattached the hose, by unclipping it at the base, to make sure there are no rips or


Your changeover valve arm is more then likely broken or cracked. If so you will have to change out your under carriage assy. it's a pretty big job. I would recommend having an authorized Dyson service center change this for you as pretty much the whole machine will have to come apart. I attached a photo to show you the problem area.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

The hand held attachment no longer has suction. The hose collapses when I try to use it. Have cleaned the vacuum thoroughly and the filter. This still happens. Ive taken all the parts off and cleaned...


Hi, please ensure that the hose is fitted correctly into the base of the Dyson. If this becomes loose or detached the machine will not **** whilst using the hose. Also check that the u bend is fitted correctly. Finally check that the vent on the left hand side (when standing behind the machine) is correctly inserted. The other issue could be that the Wand itself is blocked. Try detaching the wand from the hose and see if the hose has suction. If it does then the wand is blocked, if it doesnt then the problem lies elsewhere.

Hose attachment


Your wand is getting stuck in the hose because the hose is twisted - you need to unwind it:

1) Pull the wand up as far as you can, all the way if possible
2) Stretch the hose out and unwind it, use some babypowder on the metal part of the wand and in the future, unwind and stretch the hose out after you use it

3) If you can't get the wand all the way out, remove the canister from the front, push the button where you see the 7 vertical grooves (on the opposite side of the hook that you wind the cable around) - then pull on the hook and pull the hose up and off of the machine - stretch the hose out from the bottom and pull the wand out - now apply baby powder to the metal rod and disconnect and stretch and unwind the hose every time after you used the wand to clean.

Dyson Animal Hose collapses


The blockage is in the wand itself - take it off the back of the machine and separate it from the gray hose. Hold the wand into the air and look through it. If you don't see the light coming through the other end, there is a blockage in the wand. Remove it with a long object like a metal hanger. The DC07 wand is slightly bent at the top - you should still see some light coming through the top though. Be sure to look through the metal rod end of the wand, otherwise you probably won't see anything anyway.

Problems with Eureka 5892AVZ Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum? the cat hair seems to plug up the filter instead of goint to the canister


You may be using the wand/hose without an attachment on it. The attachments on my dyson always allow some air to flow to by, it may be the same on the Eureka. If air flow is completely stopped the cyclone will shut down and then the hair/dust/whatever will flow to the filter. So don't let the air flow be completely shut off during use.

Dyson Animal hose collapses when using attachment hose


You have a clog in either your hose or your wand. You need to take off the wand and hose and inspect them.
