Mine did the same thing.To date I have yet to find a replacement part.I do not think it is all that important either.And most likely not worth your time.

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty

Stand up lever is plastic, broke when stepped on to release handle, can it be repaired, replaced with a better one, plastic breaks too easily?


The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials

I have a Dyson DC14..I was vacuming and when I stopped the vacum would not stand up..it wouldn't click in the stationary poistion. When I turned it on all the suction is coming from the hose even though it...


Yes! Stand behind the machine. Hold the handle at about 45 degree angle. Remove the airway inspection valve (press the yellow release button that's between the right wheel and the clear bin and then just pull away that curved piece of plastic pipe). Inside, where that pipe plugs in, you will see a square plastic molding that should slide up and down. Push that square piece upwards until it snaps in to place. The machine will then stand upright.
I value your feedback so please remember to rate this response.  Good luck!

It does not stand up straight


the plastic locking mechanism to keep it upright is broken. It can be fixed, but not sure it is worth fixing. I know its a pain to lean it up against the wall all the time, but the cost for replacing the part is not worth the expense in my opinion. Good luck!

Proheat pump key


No; the new pump has a metal pulley which is more durable then red plastic pulley. be sure to place a 3/4 thick x 10 inch long (small shelf works) piece of wood under housing before removing top.
