There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.

  1. Unplug the vacuum.
  2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
  3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
  4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
  5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
  6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
  7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
  8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

    You were right. This fix worked on the first try and I'm back to cleaning. Thank you!

    This worked! Thanks! I got stuck on #4, and I would make this change in terms to match manual:

    4. Release (by using quarter turn to the left) the hose from the "valve clean out area" (where the hose inserts beneath the wand insert [ie, beneath serial # sticker]).

    After that, I just use my fingers to open the valve.

    I have model EE8802, opened up the valve and there is nothing to turn. Seems like it is one solid piece. Help!

    This worked for me, I used a good amount of amsoil silicone spray an worked the valve by hand for a bit , it has been working fine since then!

    The solution was excellent. It described how to solve the issue. What would have helped even more is how to prevent this happening I.e. Using a spray (eg WD40) to prevent reoccurrence.

    THANK YOU!! Such an easy fix. Could not find the solution on YouTube - but you described it so well that no video needed! Although if this happens again, I might make a video. Appreciate it!

The answer that Homschool Mama posted worked for me. Mine has been sticking but usually I could press down where the wand normally rests. But I couldn't get that to work this time. If anyone has any suggestions to prevent it from sticking please post.

SOURCE: NO SUCTION

If you have no suction, there are only a couple of things that could cause it. As you have checked for blockage, and changed your filters, you may have a vacuum motor with bad bearings, or broken fan blades (inside/on the vacuum motor). Either symptom points towards a vacuum motor being bad and needing replaced.

My upright electrolux vacuum will not suction from the wand. How can I fix this?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Electrolux vacuum is losing suction from its wand then most likely there is a clog in your vacuums hose.

Stretch out your vacuums hose as far as you can to unblock any clogs. If there is a clog in a hard to reach spot try using a broom handle to reach the area.

Another area to check is your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction for your vacuum. Empty your dust filter after every use to promote optimization in your suction.

Precision model blockage


No solution but we seem to have the same problem it is as if the valve isn't working. Please don't tell me to check for blockages.

Wand has no suction


had same problem, tried for two days to figure it out. husband figured out that at the bottom of the 'cup' where the wand sits is a round protrusion in the middle--that is your answer, that is what controls the valve. he pushed down on it with a tool, we actually had a small rock in the bottom of the cup preventing the plunger from working. now we know for next time. obviously out of warranty and did not want to buy a new vacuum.

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

Lack of suction in hose


That popping sound is the bleed valve activating - it indicates that there is a blockage in the machine somewhere, probably in the wand if you're saying that there is no suction in the wand.

- Take the wand off the back of the machine - press the two gray buttons to separate it from the hose - hold the wand in the air and look through it - if you can't see the light coming through the other side there's a blockage in the wand - taka a long object like a meytal hanger and remove the blockage.

If that's not the problem, call the Dyson helpline for further troubleshooting, they know what they're doing.

Suction not working in upright


Hi.

You will have A blockage in either the wand or hose, completely remove them from machine the hose unclips at the bottom back of machine,
Now switch machine on with this removed if machine sounds ok then remove the blockage from hose or wand.

If machine still poor suction & noisey with hose & wand removed check the (U) shaped inspection port for blockages.

Let me know how you get on.
