I have the dyson animal. There is something stuck in the wand tube and everyting is getting caught on it. There is very little suction from the wand. How do I get the wand apart or somehow get the object...


Yes, things stuck in vacuum hoses are not always as easy to remove as one might think. Trying to push it out with something can be counter-productive, and only get the thing stuck tighter! If you have a second vacuum, you can try sucking it out the way it came in (and risk getting it stuck in the other machine. Or you can try pulling it out, using a wooden stick with a small hook screwed in the end. If you try a piece of bent wire, you must be careful not to perforate the hose. Usually just requires a bit of ingenuity.

Dyson 28 handle is stuck in the locked and upright position. Vac runs fine, just can't get the handle to release to run the vac


On the lower right side of the body of this model is a air duct piece that can get stuck and won't allow you to use the release. Take out that piece and put it back on again to see if that will unlock it.

How to reassemble vacuum elbow tube with plastic insert?


If the plastic insert has come off then that is not normal. It should be all one piece to the hose. You might have a hose problem that needs replacing.

Suction from hose isnt strong enough. Vacuum


There is probably a clog on the U channel (little Gray tube that attaches to the Vac tubing). Pull it loose and look in side all the tubing.

No more suction on hose attachment


have you cleaned the foam filter? there should also be a u shaped piece of tubing that connects the attachments to the rest of the machine, sometimes it gets clogged ( quite often, i repair on average 3 dysons a week ) also people tend to loose the tube as well.

No hose suction


Clean your round filter and make sure there is nothing in the elbow tube in the bottom/back of the vacuum.

Hi Bob.

If you look carefully where hose & elbow jount enter machine you will see a slot.
Rotate elbow so that lug on elbow aligns with slot & pull off.

Dyson DC17 Animal Brushes turn but won't ****


Had the same exact problem (literally the EXACT problem) Take out the elbow tube and make sure it is clear. I found a small little plastic part (very small), but it did not make the turn. When I took the elbow tube off, it feel out. Upon reassembly, everything worked fine again. Seems that if the not the right amount of air flow is on, it stops.

Dyson 07 won't stand up


I talked to Dyson support (they are open 6 days a week, try them if you're stuck)

Turn the vacum on it's side. Look on the side that has Bare floor/carpet control. There is a hose with two yellow buttons. Detach the hose. On the square side, look for a black button. Depress the button, then release. On the square side, slide the square up until it locks in place.

Now try to see if it will go upright (it should)

Finally, re-attach the hose.
