I have the dc 17 animal model and there are no instructions in how to use the attachments,how they connect and so on.I have to assume that this is not an uncommon question considering that the box was completely sealed when purchased. Are there instructions that you can download. IMorales

You can call the Dyson helpline for information on how to fit the attachments. Generally, you can fit them on the wand and the hose (wand - directly on top of the red piece of plastic, hose - take the wand off the back of the vac and press the red button where the hose connects to the wand - this will remove the wand and you can attach the tools to the hose). With a DC17 Animal you probably have a Mini Turbine Head (a tool with its own brushbar - greay with red bristles) - if you have a gray button on it this is probably making you ask how it attaches to your vac - this tool is actually compatible with many other Dyson models but in your case it just fits on top of the hose and/or wand - it doesn't click into anything. As long as the fit is tight/snug, you're good.

I own a DC 17 animal model. It is not sucking very well especially when using the wand.


Make sure all filters are clean, they should be cleaned every few months. Clean with water and let dry for 24 hrs.

Reattach wand, it broke off at the black part on my DC 17 Animal


short of using epoxe etc which may not bond to plastic material I would call Dyson to see if the part can be replaced or what? I am sure you are not the only one this has happened to.
