My dyson dc25 won't lock in the upright position


The DC25 Animal has a design flaw where part of the Duct Assembly (main part of the vacuum) where the Red lock bar goes over breaks off the Duct Assembly and it causes the DC25 to not be able to stand up normally. There is a short Youtube video describing this flaw.

Unfortunately, you can repair this except by replacing the entire duct assembly.

Used machine to vaccuum upstairs. when I stood it back upright and brought it downstairs it refuses to unfold to vacuum again


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. The cleaner should recline into the vacuuming position easily when you place one foot on the cleaner head, and tilt the handle back. If it doesn't seem to be doing this, it might be worth using a little more force than usual, in case the upright lock has jammed. If it still won't recline, or if you're unwilling to try this, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can help you resolve this as quickly as possible.

You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - one of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

I got my mother a Dyson vacuum to replace her old hoover...she's used a few (3) times. I was at her house yesterday and attempted to use it to clean up some crumbs. She told me the last time she tried...


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear *********** is having difficulties with her DC28. The cleaner should recline easily into the vacuuming position when one foot is placed on the cleaner head, and the handle is lowered. If it's not doing this, check the clear U-bend at the rear of the machine for obstructions. For guidance on doing this, please see the link to our Support page below:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1236&product=DC28-ANIMAL

After removing any blockages from the U-bend, stand the cleaner upright, and try reclining it again. It might be worth using a little more force than usual, in case the upright lock mechanism has jammed. If this doesn't help, or if you're reluctant to try this, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and provide further assistance. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in contact as soon as possible.

Handle won't release to let down so I can vacuum the floor


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. You should find the cleaner reclines easily into the vacuuming position when you place one foot on the cleaner head and tilt the handle back. If it won't do this, you might want to try using a little more force than usual in case the upright lock mechanism has jammed.

If this doesn't seem to help, or if you're hesitant to try this, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON - or if you email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible. We'll look forward to hearing from you.

The vacuum keeps falling over and won't stand upright. The vacuum won't **** from the bottom, only from the hose in the handle.
