Question about Dyson DC15 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Sweeper will not turn on in the upright position. When you turn it on to sweep the floor it blows dirt out instead of suctioning it up.

SOURCE: No suction in upright position
Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.
And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: Suction not working in upright
You will have A blockage in either the wand or hose, completely remove them from machine the hose unclips at the bottom back of machine,
Now switch machine on with this removed if machine sounds ok then remove the blockage from hose or wand.
If machine still poor suction & noisey with hose & wand removed check the (U) shaped inspection port for blockages.
Let me know how you get on.

Its possible that it may be blocked in the foot of the vaccum. try going through your instruction manual to locate details on how to disassemble the suction brush and connecting ducts. If you dont have one then use this link to download it. http://ubermanuals.com/node/1870

SOURCE: no suction when vacuming floors
There are 2 types of Dc07 one is clutched & has two belts the second has only one belt going from motor to brush roller.
Lay machine on its side pull back handle as if you are to vac carpet switch machine on look to see if brush roller is spinning.
If it is not spinning unplug machine from mains supply & remove the sole plate by turning the three plastic screws to unlock position, Lift sole plate away if you have non clutched machine you will now see the brush roller with A belt going from this to the motor shaft belt may have snapped or come off so replace it.
If your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
There are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.
