Question about Vacuums
This is the entire assembly that you would need to replace. According to the technician that serviced mine, DC18 is prone to fail in this area due to owner's use or abuse in my case (LOL). He said forcing the handle to stand upright after you finished vacuuming puts a stress on the plastic hook that rotates the valve from floor mode to wand mode. The trick there is when you replace the handle to upright, you have to step down on the wheel to the floor. It cost me $70 to have it replace. Since I still have it on warranty, only the labor is no charge. The damage on my machine I admitted is not workmanship or material defect but improper use of the machine. I hope this helps. Just beware of some Dyson Authorized Service Center that wheel and deal you for something like, the carpet fresh powder caused your machine to clogged and blah blah. You will know if the problem they tell you is not even close to the ones I discussed.
