Re: Broken Dyson

Hi, I went to the Dyson site, searched for the problem AND found the solution -- to hold a button while lifting the rear of the machine up and it clicked back into place. I knew there was a button somewhere but there are soooo many buttons!!
Thanks for trying

Re: Broken Dyson

A quick temporary fix - parcel tape, or one of those stretchy cord (bungy?) with the hooks on the end. Anything more effective would probably require other parts to be replaced.

Xl2600hhvacuum won't stand alone anymore, what is broken, is it a spring or some kind of catch missing

The detent that is mounted to the inside of the base cover is not working either because the screw holding has broken off or it is worn out. You could also have a worn out fan housing since that is what the detent catches to make it stand up. If the screw is broken off the only way to repair it is to replace the housing. Hope this helps.

My Dyson falls backward & won't stand up - what's wrong?

Hi Kay,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC18. If the stabiliser doesn't seem to be locking the machine upright, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly, as we'd appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance.

You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US) - it will be useful if you can have the machine to hand when you call.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

My Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright does not click to stay in an upright position. It works but the handle falls to the floor.

This is a common fault with the Dyson DC07 (and other Dysons) unfortunately the clip that holds the handle upright hs broken. It can be repaired, but will cost a reasonable amount to have done... I would just live with the problem and prop the vacuum cleaner against a wall when not in use.

Dyson ball kickstand seems to be stuck - vacuum won't stand up

Sounds like the handle release is broken. Check the lever itself as well as the tab it catches-on (on the side of the pivot). If either is broken only Dyson has the parts. NOTE: Since it is a bagless machine it would be better to put it out on the curb. Any machine with a diposable paper bag system is better than a "dirt cup" bagless system. For an upright vacuum get a used/rebuilt Kirby, Royal or Sanitaire (now made by Electrolux but still has Sanitaire name) from a Vacuum Store, not a big box retail store. You will probably save 50 to 70% off of retail and have a machine that will last you 30 to 40 years, or more.

Dyson slim upright has lost suction via the power head , floor wand is working normal

its either the power head is clogged up with debree or the belt is broken. if the belt is broken it wont wisp everything up. Take it to a shop to fix. DONT TRY TO FIX IT YOURSELF~!!! dysons are very expensive and arent made to just be taken apart

Kirby G6 won't stay up straight.

Either the bag is too full or the catch for the stand hold has gotten some dust and or foreign materials in it. You can probably grab a small flashlight and inspect the area that catches the latch.Or it could be broken and needs replacement.
