Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I can't get the piece with the rubber stopper in it on the bottom right side of the vacuum cleaner to go back on. We took it out because it wasn't aligned properly which kept the vacuum cleaner from changing positions when we stepped on the front. Now we are finding it very difficult to put the piece back on because the plastic ring at the top part of the piece is not staying in place.

when you put the handle down it turns on the brush roll. you may need to clean the brush roll or replce it if the bearings are bad.also clutch and 2 belts are started when putting handle down for brush operation.

The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.

now you have a dyson leaf blower! not funny huh? Ok, just slow down and recheck your connections. Sounds like the motor is running backwards or you are hook up to the discharge. ck for baffles that block off the vacuum to the roller part when attachment is installed. If hose was collapsing then the restriction was or is in the hose. Don't poke through hose with anyrhing but a rounded end broom stick or you chance tearing the hose. Take machine outside to test run, but I think you already thought of that .:) Good luck. Will get back to you in a bit.

The roller is not spinning do to motor or belt not working. If it is the motor then the machine will have to go back to dyson if it is the belt then that is an easy replacement.

This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:
