SOURCE: Dirt Devil vacuum Release pedal not working

take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

SOURCE: Bosch Formula vacuum cord stuck

You need to take apart the reel. The cord is wound over itself and kinked. Be careful taking apart because if it gets away from you, you will have to wind the spring by hand and it is difficult to do and frustrating.Good luck

SOURCE: with a new bag -after turning vacuum on, it shuts down

This vac is prone to a control valve failure with the exact symptoms you describe. There is a dial valve on top of the machine designed to regulate how full the bag will get. The valve which sits underneath the dial on the vac likely has a broken plunger and will need to be replaced. Take it to an AERUS Electrolux dealer / shop for an experienced tech to work on.

SOURCE: dyson ball kickstand seems to be stuck - vacuum

Sounds like the handle release is broken. Check the lever itself as well as the tab it catches-on (on the side of the pivot). If either is broken only Dyson has the parts. NOTE: Since it is a bagless machine it would be better to put it out on the curb. Any machine with a diposable paper bag system is better than a "dirt cup" bagless system. For an upright vacuum get a used/rebuilt Kirby, Royal or Sanitaire (now made by Electrolux but still has Sanitaire name) from a Vacuum Store, not a big box retail store. You will probably save 50 to 70% off of retail and have a machine that will last you 30 to 40 years, or more.

Used machine to vaccuum upstairs. when I stood it back upright and brought it downstairs it refuses to unfold to vacuum again


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. The cleaner should recline into the vacuuming position easily when you place one foot on the cleaner head, and tilt the handle back. If it doesn't seem to be doing this, it might be worth using a little more force than usual, in case the upright lock has jammed. If it still won't recline, or if you're unwilling to try this, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can help you resolve this as quickly as possible.

You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - one of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

Jack

Handle won't release to let down so I can vacuum the floor


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. You should find the cleaner reclines easily into the vacuuming position when you place one foot on the cleaner head and tilt the handle back. If it won't do this, you might want to try using a little more force than usual in case the upright lock mechanism has jammed.

If this doesn't seem to help, or if you're hesitant to try this, 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, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible. We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Handle on dc28 has been hard to put back since new but now won't move at all. Stuck in upright potion.


You DO NOT have to take your machine to a "certified technician" to fix
this problem. Stand behind your machine, lean
over and look at the front: Right in the center of the slit between the
machine and the beater bar head, you will see a black tab. Simply slide a
thin, flat-head screwdriver down and magically the machine will
release. NOW: once it\'s released, simply examine the area where your
screwdriver JUST slid down...see the dirt and gunk? DON\'T follow the
MANY suggestions of adding lubricant "which only works for a short
while" (by their own admission) WIPE AWAY THE DIRT AND GUNK and voila!
YOU are now a "certified technician" and you didn\'t have to sit through
any technical school to get there! You go girl!!!!!!!
