Eureka Boss - no suction in upright postion

Been having the same problem since we bought it a few months ago. The attachment has suction, but no suction in upright position. Have cleaned everything - several times. I'm tired of vacuuming bent over using the attachment only~!! What is the cause and if I need servicing - how much can I expect to pay? I bought this vacuum because it was recommended by consumer reports, but regret it.

    I've lost suction when in floor mode. Hose mode works fine, and the brush is still spinning. There's just no suction and the hair just stays on the carpet.

    My vacuum will not pick up when using it upright. the hose works fine. it is connected just fine.

    Same thing happened to me.  I owned it less than a week.  It shut off after my kids tried vacuuming up a shoe string.  The suction automatically shut off and the string didn't get stuck in it, but now the suction won't go back on.  The hose works fine though.  And it's connected properly...

When mine does that I find that the hose is not connected properly where it comes off to use the attachments.
If there is suction there, it is a straight shot to the floor unless it is loose where it fits together.

The burn smell means you should take it to a qualified Electrolux repair facility. It may be an electrical issue and could catch on fire if not repaired properly.

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!

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The first check would be to see if the brush bar is turning when the machine is switched on and in the vacuuming position. To do this, release the head and lie the machine on its side. Switch it on and check the brush bar making sure long hair and fingers are kept out of the way.

If the brush bar is turning, you will need to check the machine thorugh for blockages and clean the pre filter as these are the most likely cause of a loss of performance.

If this does not resolve the problem or if the brush bar is still not turning, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

I have excellent suction power through the vac, but when I try to use the hose there is no suction power there. I have cleaned everything and it is definitely clean and clear. I've also used the reset...


When you use the upright Dyson, the handle has to be in the upright position for the hose to work. In this position, there should be a clear way through for the suction to the hose, and the suction for the normal sweeper should be off. This is all very mechanical, not electronic, and if it does not work there is either a blockage in a bit you haven't found, or a broken plasic component which should be obvious if you take out all the bits in the pipe run that can be removed - there are quite a few of them!
Hope this helps

Dirt does not go in the dustdup


Take off the front top filter (the clear plastic peice where it says eureka) there should be two filters inside, the bit of foam and the peice it's attached to.

I clean both parts in warm soapy water and let dry, that always fixes the problem for me.

NO SUCTION COMING FROM BOTTOM OF VACUUM


even though the belt isnt broken you should replace it also make sure the height is raised up on the nozzle. try dropping a marble through the hose to double check there is nothing stuck ( the attachment hose and the small hose that runs to the floor )

No vacuum suction during normal floor cleaning operation


That door is called a valve door, and it may have broken, part #38718013. Or the valve arm, rear broke, part number 38719048. The spring part # is 38358001. Usually it is the valve arm that breaks. You would have to take the top cover off, then you can see the parts.
