Quoting from page 6 of the manual:

"Select the radio band and tune in a desired radio station you wish to store in the preset memory.
Press and hold, for at least 2 seconds, any one of the preset buttons (1 through 6) that you want to store the station on. The selected station is stored. The display shows the band, preset number and station frequency memorized. A total of 18 stations can be stored in the preset memory (6 stations for each band; FM1, FM2 and AM). If you store a station in a preset memory which already has a station, the current station will be cleared and replaced with the new station."

    My apologies, the above was meant for another issue. In regard to your issue, did you try pressing the release button at the base of the handle?

Dyson wand, handle and hose are all unattached. How do I put them back together?


You can find a copy of the DC14 Manual here (
https://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/US/Floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007%20pdf.pdf ) Pages 4, 5, and 6 have plenty of schematics for putting the wand/handle assembly back together and getting everything to click. In a nutshell, the metal tube pretty much just slides back into the tube top, and then the slid-in tube clicks back into the top of the machine.

Good Luck!

Dyson dc25 animal retractable wand won't go back


Did you try to release the extension by clicking on the red button on the back of the wand? This may allow you to see what is obstructing the pathway for the wand..

Sweeper stopped after using wand


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
Most of our vacuums include a thermal cut out, which shuts the machine off if it starts to overheat. Usually this will be because the filter needs a wash, or because there's a blockage in the machine. From what you've described it sounds like there's a blockage in the hose, wand or duct.
To resolve this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL
It's important to wash your machine's filter at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video above. 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 if you would like some further advice from our experts, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com. We'll be in touch as soon as possible.
Best wishes,
Jack

Power head and wand has no power. Unit is less than 4 month old.


Hi, I had the same problem with mine and found that if you plug the power head directly into the handpiece (bypassing the telescopic wand) and it worked only proved the problem is in the telescopic wand. The problem as I found was a broken terminal in the end that connects to the powerhead (female socket). As it is a non repairable part means replacement at $100AUS I have had my machine for 3 years and in this time have replaced the both powerhead once and the wand twice within 2 years of owning the machine. The wand has now gone faulty again 4 months after replacing it and consequently Electrolux only warranty spares for 3 months which I think is poor! Its a great machine but a little too delicate even if it is only used for domestic operations once a fortnight! I paid $700 for my Oxy3 3 years ago and wont be buying another Electrolux product due to poor service (customer and product):((

This is embarassing, but I have just looked at the Dyson DC07 manual and at my Dyson for about 20 minutes, and I can't for the life of me find the wand release button on my actual Dyson.....the manual...


Hi the wand release button is located directly above the the Cylinder release button. The wand release button looks like the picture below. In order to releease the wand you must firstly make sure the Electrical cable is not wrapped up for storage. So unwrap the electrical cable. then find the item as in the picture. Press this button in and at the same time lift the wand. This will realease the wand from the spine of the Dyson. dumfriesdon.jpg

My dyson 17 wand does not work. When it is on and you stand it upright it turns off


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the suction is good from the base but not from the wand, this would indicate that there is a blockage in the wand handle or hose. To test this, stand the machine upright and release the wand handle. Switch the machine on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If its poor, remove the wand handle from the hose and try the suction at the top of the hose. If its good here, then there is a blockage in the wand handle.

If the sction from the top of the hose is poor, you can remove the hose to check this for any splits or blockages. If it needs to be replaced, you can buy a replacement online at www.dyson.com.

Alternatively, should you any further help or advice with your Dyson, please contact our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards
Darran

The wand is hard to pull up


The wand on this machine get lots of tiny dirt and fine dust caught in the sliding tube that fits in the hose. You will need to take the hose at its cuff end where it meets the wand and press the two tabs to release the wand out, then take some spay cleaner of any kind and wipe down the wand tube. This should make it easy to slide in and out of the hose. Now just put it back together.

Dyson dc25 animal: cannot remove the telescope reach wand.


The hose is getting twisted on the machine and so the wand gets stuck in the hose.

1) Pull the wand out as far as you can - if you can pull it out completely, separate it from the hose and apply baby powder to the
metal rod. Stretch out the hose and unwind it. In the future, separate the wand and unwind/stretch the hose after use.
2) If you can't pull the wand out all the way, remove the canister/dirt bin from the front. Look for a gray button with 7 vertical
lines/grooves on it (it'll be just above the ball on the opposite side of the bottom hook that you wind the cable around).
3) Push the button and at the same time pull the hose out from the bottom by pulling on the hook - this will release the gray hose
from the machine. Take it off of the machine if possible (the bottom of the wand may stop you from doing so - if it does, try to pull
the wand out until you can release the hose from the bottom)
4) Pull and stretch the hose out and pull the wand at the same time - separate the wand from the hose and unwind the gray hose and
stretch it out. Rub baby powder on the metal rod of the wand and in future, disconnect the wand from the hose and stretch/unwind the
hose after every time you use the wand.

I have Dyson animla and the wand stop working....no bloc anywhere


The hose is getting twisted on the machine and that makes it difficult to pull it out.
1) Pull the wand out as far as you can - if you can pull it out completely, separate it from the hose and apply baby powder to the metal rod. Stretch out the hose and unwind it. In the future, separate the wand and unwind/stretch the hose after use.
2) If you can't pull the wand out all the way, remove the u-bend from the bottom of the machine - turn that plastic screw at the bottom next to the gray hose 45 degrees anti-clockwise and take the u-bend off.
3) Pull the hose out from the bottom (don't pull it out all the way - just enough to release the wand) and pull the wand at the same time - separate the wand from the hose and unwind the gray hose and stretch it out. Rub baby powder on the metal rod of the wand and in future, disconnect the wand from the hose and stretch/unwind the hose after every time you use the wand.
