The vacuum is stuck with the handle at about a 40 degree angle from the floor. Pushing on the two bottom levers does not bring the handle to an upright position. The motor is working fine.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. If the cleaner won't return to the upright position after use, it may be because the valve carriage has become misaligned. This is easy to rectify - please see the video guide from our Support page:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1376&product=DC07-SY-HEPA_US

You should be able to recline your DC07 easily into the vacuuming position by placing a foot on the cleaner head and lowering the handle. The user guide supplied with your cleaner demonstrates how to do this - in case you don't have yours to hand, here's an online copy:

http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc07_opmanual_usa.pdf

Following the steps shown in the video should resolve your issue. However, if you have any further concerns, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so one of our experts can run through some troubleshooting checks over the phone with you, and provide further assistance. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

I paid to have ny DC07 serviced a few months ago and it still takes a few minutes to start picking up dust . Why do you think this is because I have checked it over thoroughly for blockages . This was why...


There is a selecting mechanism that engages when the handle is brought from the upright position .
It's one of the snap in parts on the right hand side which you actually see pivot when the vacuum is engaged, I just found this out with my own DC07 . When it pivots upward it is then locked in place you can also see a square black button just above the pivot nozzle,it is engaged when the handle is returned to the upright position. This directs suction to either the handle or the brush head. In my case,the pivoting nozzle was not completely engaged in an upward position. Some cleaning and adjusting solved the problem. as you said after a minute or two that the suction commences and there's the reason why, a sticking selector. Take a closer look at that section of the machine.
Happy Dysoning!

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.

The wandcap for my dyson vacuum doesn't stop the air from flowing though the wand. If your first responce is what model dyson ---then don't bother responding.


The cap on the DC07 should allow air to flow through when the handle is in the upright position. When you pull the handle back, there shouldn't be suction in the handle.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.

If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the "on" position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

The handle will not click into the upright position-only stays in "vacuuming position". How do I fix it? Linda from KY

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.

My Dyson upright suddenly won't stay in the upright position. It appears that a little rubber piece has fallen out of position.


- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square
hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole

No suction in upright position


Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!
