How do you get it to click/stay in the upright position? I just used it and I can't get it to stay in the upright position for storage...Thanks in advance for you help.


The Dyson manuals for pretty much all of the uprights don't show any particular 'click' to full upright: they just tell you to put a foot on the bottom part of the unit and pull backward to put it into vacuum mode. There is some sort of sensor or mechanical engagement in there, since putting the system to full-upright is how you switch it from floor mode to attachment mode (coming of of the handle).

A couple of things to try - follow your manual (PDF Can be seen here Dyson DC28 Animal User Guide ) to try removing and then re-seating the hose assembly into the base of the unit (the bottom connector). I've seen other guidance to that being necessary to have the floor-to-hose switch-over work properly, which might, in turn, be the root of your problem. Likewise, with the unit turned on, see if it will switch to attachment mode (air being sucked through the top of the handle) if you push the back as far forward as you can. If it won't switch, that also points to seating of the tubing assembly not being right.

Good Luck :-)

Milie won,t stay upright


If your miele is laying all the way down like mine is and will not stand upright..look for a dark gray corrugated plastic part where the handle bends at the base. This is above the silver holed plastic filter holder. This may be stuck. I just pulled mine out and then I was able to stand it upright again. I wasn't able to put it back in but I think it is there just to cover up the inside workings of the vacuum. So I left it out.

Hoover steam vac hose is broken


This applies to Hoover SteamVac model F5899-910.

My unit had a broken hose. I repaired the hose using duct tape and Teflon tape. The breakage seems to be due to a manufacturing error or design defect. The hose is clamped to the unit where it passes to the inside. The position of the clamp did not allow enough slack when the handle is released and the unit is wide open.

The hose coupling has a plastic latch that holds it onto the vacuum nipple. Pry it and remove the coupling. Then trim the ragged end of the hose and clean things up. Wrap the hose with some teflon tape and then tape the hose to the coupling with several turns of duct tape. Attach the hose coupling back onto the vacuum nipple.

Now you should move the clamp say an inch, so that it leaves more slack. Take the two screws out of the clamp and pry out the plastic bracket/cover that holds the clamp in place. Then move the clamp and screw the clamp back onto the bracket/cover. Then snap the bracket/cover back in place.

Take care not to put too much slack in the hose (by moving the clamp too far), as the hose can also bunch up due to being too crowded when the handle is upright.

Inspect the hose and the tape whenever you use it.

My easy flo built in system wont turn on when the


If there is a switch on your hose, it may be broken.
Your system powers on from the inlets via two low voltage wires that run from the inlets to the switch/relay at the power unit. Each inlet has 2 spring loaded pins attached to the low voltage wires. In the photo below you should see these pins at the bottom of the opening, just above the door hinge. The receptacle at the top of the inlet in this photo supplies 110 volts to power your power nozzle. Not all inlets have this option, but if yours does, exercise extreme caution. Your hose must have a completely metal end or if it is a plastic end, it must have a metal band in order to short the 2 low voltage wires together to trigger the switch.
You can manually short the two low voltage pins together by using a metal pipe or needle nose pliers, just touch both pins at the same time. CAUTION: stay away from the 110 volt receptacle if present.
If your system powers on with this manual method then it would seem that the problem is in your hose.
If your system does not power on; your low voltage wires may be disconnected from the power unit or disconnected somewhere else . It's also possible that you have a bad circuit/controller board in the power unit.

Hoover Portapower hose won't stay on, when it does poor suction.


In reply to the problem you have about the hose not staying attached very well, we had this problem years ago with one of our old cylinder vacs. Sometimes after several years of the hose connector being rotated to attach/remove it from the machine, the lugs that lock it into the hole can wear down or become mis-shapen as they are only made of plastic.

I have a UK model Hoover Portapower and luckily have never had this problem as I hardly remove the hose at all (except when emptying the bag). If you remove the hose from the machine and have a look at the connecting part of the hose where it attaches to the machine, there should be two lugs/clips either side of it. If these lugs look a bit mis-shapen or the plastic on them looks worn, then the hose will not fit the two slots either side of the hole on the inlet fully hence the hose being loose. The only way to cure this problem is either put a little bit of electrical tape on them which will stick the hose to the machine better as that's what we did. Overall though you are probably best replacing the hose for a new one if this is the case as these lugs will then be the correct shape to fit the machine properly on a brand new one :)

Where do the hoses connect?


The upholstery **** hooks into the dirty water collection tank. With the lis off the tank, you remove a flat plastic part from the tank on the side and replace it with the flat plastic part of the hose. Then put the lid on and you're good to go.

Either the filters are clogged, the hose has a clog in it, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Pull the hose off and see if you have suction at the end of the hose, that will tell you which way to look for a clog.

Vacuum shuts off


if you want to fix this problem gently pry up the air flow control knob and look down at the plastic hose connected below the control valve. insert a small screwdriver and push off the hose from the valve. this disconnects the bag full indicator but will let the vacuum operate normally at full vacuum. you will change the bag when suction gets low. this will save you at least $100 repair bill.
