My dyson dc65 was just working properly. I shut it off for a moment... turned it on and the beater bar worked BUT as soon as I set the dyson upright to use the hose, it shuts off.

SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

SOURCE: upright positon dyson won't work

Have you checked your permanent filter? Have you checked the hoses for clogs. As a last resort you can disassemble the cyclone and clean it. If the vac is less than 5 years old, Dyson will probably send you a new Cyclone to replace yours.
Also check that you have the gasket inside the center of the bottom of the clear canister on the right way. If it is backwards your suction will be much less

    SOURCE: dyson animal 17 the floor part works but when you stand upright to use hose is shuts off?

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC17. If the machine shuts off when standing in the upright position, it may be overheating due to a blockage in the wand, hose or U-bend. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL

    It's also a good idea to give the filter a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

    This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance please call us free on 1-866-693-9766 or email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com

    Best wishes,

    Jack

    This is for the DC65 Animal - I can't get it to turn on when it is in the upright position so I can use the wand. If I lower the handle the turn on button works fine and so does the machine.


    Make sure the suction motor is actually working. I've had Dyson vacuums brought in for exactly what you said but the only motor running was the brush bar motor which made the owner think the suction motor was working properly when it was not.

    How Do I reset my Dyson DC65


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    Like most Dyson upright vacuums, DC65's brush bar is engineered to shut off for protection if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions and removed any threads or hair from the brush bar, you should be able to reset your machine as shown in the video:


    There's no physical reset button - the reset mechanism is built into the main on/off and brush control switches. Please note, the brush bar will never rotate when your machine is standing upright, so recline it into the normal vacuuming position before testing it.

    If you need any further advice from our experts after giving this a try, you're welcome to contact the Dyson Customer Helpline directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). In the unlikely event that a repair or a replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under your Dyson parts and labour guarantee.

    My dyson dc 17 does not work when in the upright position


    I had this same issue today, after not being able to find a solution, I took apart the brush area by unscrewing the three simple screws... my belt had a TON of dog and cat hair built up inside it so I cleaned that out and it did the trick.
