Hi There,
You can get a button repair kit and it should fix your problem which is normally a loose spring. In Australia VacuumSpot sell these over the net.

SOURCE: Hose Collapses When I Try to Use Wand

Hi Both.

Ok you have A blockage, Remove flexi hose completly from rear of machine & completly remove wand & handle from the hose.

Now check flexi hose for obstruction if none present move on to the wand & hanndle look down through tha wand for any obstruction look very carefully where the plastic handle meets alloy tube there is A slight bend here often A coin gets stuck here & flips accross to block oppening when you try to use wand.

If you cant see anything coin etc put hose back on machine & switch on there should be good suction from the flexi hose,
Now with machine still switched on push alloy pipe back on if the hose suddenly pulls back & there is poor or no suction you definately have A coin stuck at the bend.

You will need A broom handle or other long solid pole to hit it out.

SOURCE: Attachment hose collapses when using wand

The thoe or the wand is clogged. Remove the hose at the machine end, reverse it and turn the machine on. This should **** the blockage out, the way it got in. If you hear the motor straining, it's still clogged. I've already taped a small hook, like a screen door hook onto a broomstixk and fished into the blockage to remove it. Be carefol. If you puncture the hose by pulling too hard, the hose will be ruined. Tahe your time and look for something unecpected, like a toothpick or a LEGO piece. They and vacuum cleaner friendly.

SOURCE: My telescopic wand height adjustment won't lock

These wands have a very small nub that locks them into place. They wear out very easily. You might have to replace the wand.

How to return telescopic reach pole to original position


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Once you've reattached the wand to the machine, you need to press the release catch again to collapse the wand back down inside the hose. The release catch is the same one you used to remove the wand initially, located just above the on/off switch.

The telescoping wand on my Dyson DC 25 will not retract back into the hose.


Hi Nina, it's Jack at Dyson.

Difficulty collapsing the wand can mean that the plastic handgrip section hasn't been correctly placed on the machine. When you replace the wand on the machine, make sure the handgrip section clips onto the main body and is down as far as it will go.

It's also a good idea to make sure that the hose isn't twisted, as a twisted hose can create resistance as you try to collapse the wand. Remove the wand again and allow the hose to untwist itself fully before attempting to replace the wand on the machine.

I'm confident these steps should resolve the issue, but if you would like some further guidance after you've given this a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty collapsing your DC11's telescopic wand. It should retract in one smooth action when you hold down the catch - if it seems to be jammed, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be able to recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

Wand in stowaway dyson is hard to extend. Seems like u have to pull 3 clips from grooves in 3 rings around wand to extend and shorten wand which is a struggle


Hi there, you should just be able to hold the telescopic wand in one hand, press the button and pull the whole length of the wand out to its fullest position.

If the telescopic wand on your particular Dyosn is very stiff, you may need a replacement.

Your machine may still be under guarantee or warranty. If this is the case, please contact Dyson directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

I'm not sure what "jammed shut" means, but I am assuming it means that it is collapsed in the short position and will not extend. What I would try, is to grip the lower end in a vise or something that will hold it securely and while pressing on the lock button, wiggle and pull on the top. Failing that, I would take a pair of large pliers and open them to fit loosly against the top pipe where it meets the lower pipe and while pressing the lock button, take a hammer and GENTLY tap the pliers to dislodge the mechanism. The pliers would be positioned against the top pipe and the taping should push the pipe away from the lower portion, the lower being held securely. Don't hit the pliers to hard or you will damage and mushroon the top pipe. If this doesn't work, you can take it to a repair shop for them to try or replace the wand assy.
