Make sure the plastic flat head locking mechanism at the bottom back is in the unlock position. Then simply push down on the front while pulling handle back. No button or lever involved.

The vacuum handle won't recline. Everything else works great, how do I fix it?


It sounds as though either the pushbutton may be broke or out of alignment. The recline works by pushing the latch pawl out of the locked position to allow the handle to recline. I have the user manual link and while it does not have that particular maintenance item the beater bar disassembly should let you see the mechanism to see if it is broken.

How to put the Dyson Vacuum Cleaner out of the upright position?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

To recline your DC33 into the normal vacuuming position, place one foot on the cleaner held and recline the main body. After use, just stand the vacuum upright and it will lock in position until you recline it again.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm glad to hear your Dyson DC28 Airmuscle vacuum has worked so well for you for 5 years, but I'm sorry to hear you're now having difficulty reclining the machine.

It's possible this could occur if an item such as a pen or pencil has been accidentally vacuumed up, and is jamming the changeover valve mechanism. This is easy to check for - after turning off and unplugging the vacuum, lie the machine on its side and open the duct inspection port, then remove any objects or debris:

If you can't find anything, but continue to experience difficulty reclining your vacuum, please get in touch with our experts directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Dyson will not recline


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty reclining your DC28. This can sometimes be caused if an object - for example, a pen that's accidentally been vacuumed up - is jamming the changeover valve. This is easy to check for using the airway inspection port:

If you're unable to find anything jamming the changeover valve but continue to have difficulty reclining your vacuum, please get in touch directly so our experts can provide further assistance. If a repair or a replacement part is needed we can also confirm if this is covered under our 5-year warranty. You can reach us on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA)

Dyson dc-15 brushes don't engage


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC15. If the brushbar won't rotate when you recline the machine into the vacuuming position, it may simply need resetting. To do this, please follow the steps shown in the video below.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice, please get in touch with us directly by calling free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can help.

My vacuum will not engage to unlock to vacuum. I turn the vacuum on - that works fine. I put my foot on the part to make it so I can vacuum and it will not unlock. What could be the problem. SOO...


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. The cleaner should recline easily into the vacuuming position when one foot is placed on the cleaner head, and the handle is lowered. If it's not doing this, check the clear U-bend at the rear of the machine for obstructions, as a blockage here could jam the valve carriage, making the cleaner difficult to recline. For guidance on doing this, please see the link to our Support page below:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1236&product=DC28-ANIMAL

After removing any blockages from the U-bend, stand the cleaner upright, and try reclining it again. It might be worth using a little more force than usual, in case the upright lock mechanism has jammed. If this doesn't help, or if you're reluctant 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 provide further assistance. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in contact as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

Jack

Trouble engaging the on switch for both suction and to drive the roller on a Hoover Savy windtunnel (bagless).


The electronics in the handle are constantly going out. First things first though, recline the unit and turn the vacuum upside down so the front is resting on the carpet. Locate the black wired which is near the nozzle and body, wiggle that cord while the vacuum is on to test. if it cuts out, that is your problem if it doesn't replace the top handle and that will fix your unit

Vacuum only turns on in reclined position/pull out hose broken


Per the Dyson Web Site I found the solution. Although I cleared all the filters/possible clogs the vacuum had over heated disabling the pull out attachment and power button except when in the reclined position. After clearing the filter and waiting an hour for it to cool it was back to working like normal.
