Cannot activate the step mechanism that allows for upright vacuuming


Hi Jan, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you're having difficulty reclining your DC17 from the upright position, it's possible something like a pen or pencil has been accidentally vacuumed up, and is jamming the changeover valve.

Our Support guide should help you check for this: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc17/dc17-allfloors/using-my-dyson-list/redirect-to-flo-dc07-gen-how-to-remove-a-blockage/flo-dc07-gen-how-to-remove-a-blockage/redirect-to-flo-dc17-wand-suction/flo-dc17-wand-suction

Dyson has no suction and hose doesn't work


Hi Brenna, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17 Absolute. I can see that you've already checked for blockages, but the issues you've describe do strongly suggest that there's a blockage somewhere in the machine. You might want to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide, as this should help you locate any obstructions you may have missed:

Best wishes,

I have a blockage in the wand and don't know how to remove it. No suction


Disassemble Your Dyson Animal so you can access the area around the wand. If the block is in the wand itself, you can clear it by passing something through it (such as a broom or mop handle).

Blocks in other piping and outlets can be removed by hand.

Beauty of the Dyson Animal line is that a homeowner can find and fix problems easily.

Dyson DC17 Animal does not have enough suction from the wand handle to power the mini turbine head. The wand handle has very little suction.


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your wand/hose assembly is blocked. Try following the blockage procedure in your user guide or visit our website's support section where you can use our self help guide to diagnose problems.

The suction in the hose of my 2 year old Dyson Animal vacuum is compromised. I may have sucked up a small cat toy or something. Regular vac still is fine. The hose "sucks closed" after a few seconds near...


Hi there, it sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To test this, remove the wand handle from the hose and test the suction at the top of the hose. If its strong here, then you will need to remove the blockage from the wand handle. If the suction is still poor, you will need to remove the hose by pressing in the catch on the hose cuff near the base of the machine and removing any blockages.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards

My DC17 suction hose doesn't have any suction occasionally.


check the seal on the filter is not broken,And check for any blockage at the bottom of the pickup pipe.

Suction from hose isnt strong enough. Vacuum


There is probably a clog on the U channel (little Gray tube that attaches to the Vac tubing). Pull it loose and look in side all the tubing.

No suction at all.


There is probably an object caught in one of the tubes. Or something by the filter.
