Tip & How-To about Vacuums

How to Prolong the life of your Vacuum leaner

There are several types of vacuum cleaners these days. Most people now seem to use the upright bagless vacuums since you do not have to buy the filter bags. Those vacuums are fine, if you take the proper care of them. Ithink it is a bit messy. In order for you to really prolong the life of any vaccuum, you must make sure the machine has plenty of circulation. In order for the vaccuum do the great job you expect, you have to do a little maintenance on it.

  • Each time you run the vaccuum,
  • Take out all filters (foam & the plastic inserts)
  • Wash the filters out with warm water.

How do i stop the dust/dirt from coming out of the hose tube when i remove the hose to use attachments?


It sounds like your hose is stopped up. This is a common problem with bagless machines. It's a good idea to buy a bag type vacuum cleaner when this one quits. Most of these chinese made , bagless cleaners only last one year and don't perform very well either. They stop up easily because of poor suction and poor design.

Loss of suction?


Mine was doing something similar. When standing upright, suction was strong through the hose. When I lowered the handle to sweep the floor, the bar underneath would spin, but the suction seemed horrible and the dirt inside the window wasn't spinning/cycloning like it used to. I called Dyson Support and they had me lay the vacuum on it's left side. Now look underneath and you'll see a clear hose, one end connected to the upper part of the vacuum and the other to the lower. I removed the tube and it was completely clogged, especially at the point that it connects to the bottom part of the vaccum. After that I reconnect and it sucks like the day I got it. Dyson support is still sending me a new "internal hose" but I don't think I need it.

turning off / overheating?


Reading of another poster's similar issue caused me to realize there was indeed a third filter in this bagless vacuum cleaner. It was saturated with thick dust that was difficult to remove. Cleaning it cured the problem and I will know better next time to read my manual when I purchase a new item.
I do agree with other readers though that this particular vacuum is not savvy when it comes to picking up dog hair. It would rather push it around for a while then do the job right.
