How to put the Dyson Vacuum Cleaner out of the upright position?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

To recline your DC33 into the normal vacuuming position, place one foot on the cleaner held and recline the main body. After use, just stand the vacuum upright and it will lock in position until you recline it again.

Roller brush spins


The roller brush will turn as long as the sweeper motor is running no matter what brand you have. Turn it off as you return it to the upright position.

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.

It sounds like the undercarriage unit has failed. It is a common problem on ball models. The DC25 is a recent model so would still be under Dyson's 5 year guarantee. Get them out to it.

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..

THe vacuum won't divert from hose to carpet


Turn the vacuum off, return the handle to upright locked position.

Then securely fit hose into the hose holder.

Then depress lever and engage handle into non-locked position, and turn on vacuum on "carpet"

There will always be some airflow through the hose, but when the hose is parked it creates more airflow to the carpet head

Shuts off in upright position and spitting dirt back out


it is a blockage. Dyson cuts off in this case to prevent overload. Also leaking dirt indicates blockage. Strip everything out you can. Remove foot plate on base and check for hair or fibre blockage. it may be small and in an odd place.. seek and ye shall find. If not, return to dealer for service. Good vacuum though.

make sure the vacuum is in the upright (locked position) - when you lower the handle, this puts tention on the belt. If it is in the upright and locked position, there is plenty of clearance (unless you have the wrong belt.
