I can't lower the handle


I had the same problem. There are two groves that need sticky and need lubrication. They are located on a cylindrical part. Turn the Dyson upside down and you will see how the part with the brushes moves. Look for the two grooves on the gray part and lubricate them. I think I used a household lubrication product. Just a few drops and you will find that the front will easily slide into "vacuuming position" very easily.

I have a Dyson DC-07. The green cap with holes in it usually covers the end of the wand when used in upright vacuum mode. Now it just jumps open and so is very noisy when in use.


Regardless of the position of the green cap, there should only be suction through the pipe when the handle is locked in the upright position and you are using the flexi pipe. You should not be getting suction when the cleaner is being used as a traditional upright cleaner.

The chacces are that the little rubber flap that cuts off the vaccuum from the flexi pipe has something jamming it open (hairclips, dropped needles and bits of stick are favorite. Lay the machine on its front with the body fully flattened out and look down the extension pipe to the place where it ends (the area that would normally be very close to the floor if it was upright) You will see the little rubber flap at the end. My money is on you seeing something stuck there.

Please add a comment if this doesn't fix your problem and we can discuss more

Have a DC25, I can not return the handle to the upright position. Nothing appears to be broken


Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.

During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.

Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.

While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.

The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..

When the dyson is turned on the suction goes to the wand when you tip the beater down you do not have as much suction you cant pick up lint.


The Dyson system is designed to operate the hose with the handle in the upright position. When the head is tipped down (floor vacuum position) it closes the opening to the hose/wand

Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    • The machine should now stand upright.

    I have the Hoover upright windtunnel and have used it only once. It worked wonderfully the first time but now only the hand tool has suction. I can't find the book that came with it though. How do I get...


    Seems like you must have suction at th hose. The either a belt came off or it is plugged up at the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Some Hoovers have a spring loaded door that opens and closes depending on whether the handle is down or in its upright position, It may not be opening when you drop the handle to vacuum.
