    SOURCE: Will onboard attachments from Dyson DC33 fit Dyson DC40?

    Hi CharlieFelicia, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC33 and DC40 include very similar onboard tools - a Stair tool, and a Combination tool. These share our click-fit connection design, so the tools from DC33 should fit to the end of DC40's wand, and also directly to the hose cuff for cleaning in confined spaces.

    SOURCE: Why is my Dyson DC40 blowing and not sucking

    actually if it is moving air as your question suggests, nothing is wrong with the unit, if it is blowing then it is in fact sucking...I feel the problem may be user error.

    The machine works with the hose but not with the base suction. Have cleaned all filters and baseplate etc so no blockages. Machine not picking up when used without the hose.

    Hi Alan, it's Jack at Dyson.

    From what you've described, it sounds as if you may have a blockage inside your machine's internal hose or changeover valve. This is housed within the ball assembly, so it may not be immediately noticeable. Please follow the steps shown in the images below:

    My Dyson works perfectly well with the base plate. As soon as i use the hose part it tends to loose all power and i cant even stretch the hose properlu

    The hose is blocked, so you have very little suction at the end. The vacuum in the hose is pulling the hose shorter. With the vacuum turned off, push a broom handle through the hose to dislodge the blockage.

    My dyson dc40 stays upright, i cant get it to go down..can you advise?

    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    If your DC40 won't recline into the normal vacuuming position, it's likely an object has been accidentally vacuumed up and is jamming the internal changeover valve. Our video guide shows how to check for and resolve this:

    I'm confident this will get your machine up and running again, but if you'd like some further help from our experts after giving this a try, please call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    Model DC40, the wand doesn't have any suction when I want to use on stairs, etc.

    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
    If your DC40 doesn't seem to have suction through the wand but picks up as normal on flooring, it's likely there's a blockage in the wand or hose. To locate and remove any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

    It's also worth giving both filters a wash as shown in the video below - in normal use this should be done at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent and at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

    I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance please call our freephone Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
