Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
You have a blockage in the wand - take the wand off of the back of the machine, separate the wand from the hose by pushing the red button where the hose is attached to the wand. Hold the wand up in the air and look trough it. If you don't see light coming through the other end you have a blockage in the wand. Take a long object like a stick or a metal hanger and remove the blockage. I am confident that this is where the blockage is but...if you can see through the wand the blockage is in the u-bend, but the hose won't constrict then...remove the u-bend which is attached to the vac at the bottom next to the long gray hose - it is attached to the machine with a plastic screw - turn the plastic screw 45 degrees anti-clockwise and clear the blockage from the u-bend.

I discovered my Dyson 17 would loose vaccum and yet I could not hear anything while the floor brush was running. After letting the unit sit for 15-20 minutes it would have suction again. I think there is a thermal overload within the vacuum motor that is causing to to quit. Has anyone else experience this and what is the cure?

Starts to vacuum and sounds like a valve opens and start letting in air. Suction drops to nothing. I have cleared all paths and confirmed nothing is blocked.

Try taking the pre filer out that the blue sponge thing replace the housing and see if the sucton improves maybe the prefilter needs cleaning
