Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

The rollers at the bottom of the sweeper have things stuck around them

The rollers that pick up the dirt at the bottom of our Dyson has pieces of old rug and strings wrapped around it and I am having trouble running the sweeper and picking up dust and dirt.

Also the yellow top of the place you empty the dust out of has dust stuck int he holes which I guess is the motor and when I empty the plastic tube I can't get the dust particles out of the holes in the motor.
HELP, Please

You need to start with a pair of scissors and patience. Sit on the floor with the vacuum roller visible and accessible. Snip a string and pull it off. If the roller stops, cut string at that point. Try again. this is time consuming, but necessary. We borrowed a vacuum from a family that had four girls with long blond hair. We had to de-hair the roller before it would work sufficiently on our carpet. Once the hair was off, it worked GREAT! It was so wonderful that we went out and bought a Dyson of our own; now we don't have to remove long blonde hair from the roller to get it to work.

Shark cordless sweeper making loud noise s When in use only 1eek old


Did you check the bottom of the sweeper to make sure you didn't pick up a rock or pieces of a toy or ect.... That might had gotten stuck in the sweeper. If it's not that! 1week old, you might consider exchanging it for another.

2013 Oreck Vacuum . How can I check to see if it is stopped up?


If it scatters the dirt then it's definitely clogged up at the nozzle just behind the roller brush. Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle. Then look under the roller brush. I have two Oreck's in my house. You can take a screwdriver to loosen the clog and dump out the dirt. Don't try to pick up pine needles as these are sticky and will quickly clog up any vacuum sweeper.

Little suction at all through the bottom sweeper but the hose is powerfull still..took apart,,spent real time,,new filter and all..still no luck. please advise.


Is the brush/roller spinning? If not, then the connection between the roller is broken, it is a two piece roller connected by a round black piece. there is a gear under there that can break and keep the roller from spinning together.

Sweeper Brush doesn't turn.


Could be that too much hair, string, or long fibers have been collecting around the roller. Remove it and clean it off. Also check the duct behind roller that goes up into the connection hose. Ther most likely is some sort of blockage.

Dyson o7 animal pick up problems


Hi.

If your machine is A few years old it may need new brush roller fitted.

To check roller for wear lie machine on the floor & pull back head end as if vaccuming carpet.

Now get A rule or straight edge hold this over brush roller & sole plate oppening.

Now rotate brush slowly by hand the bristles of the brush should just kiss the edge of rule. If ther is a gap you will need toreplace the roller.

Suction not working


Hi,

Ok first thing to do is remove & clean the 2 piece premotor filter or purchase new.

Now remove soleplate from bottom of machine to do this rotate the 3 plastic screws to unlock position. Lift sole plate off now remove any blockagers or fluff that may be built up over the brush roller.
Remove hair from brush roll using scissors.

Check short clear hose for blockages & any damage rips or tares if it is damaged purchase new hose.

Now look at belts & rotate brush roller it should turn relatively easy if it is difficult to turn by hand remove the brush roller & pull off the end caps the axle will come out with one of the caps.
Check the roller bearings clean away dust build up replace end caps & axle spin roller holding on to end cap if freely to spin refit back on to machine.

If its stiff to rotate you will need new roller.

Now pull off the 2 inspection ports check them for bits of paper etc especialy the (U) shaped port at bottom rear of machine this can contain pens pencills stones all sorts of items that hinder the suction.

Now check the long flexi hose & metal wand for any obstructions.

If after all this machine is still not working correctly go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/

On this site you will find Dyson service manuals covering poor suction, clutch,motor, etc.

Roller not spinning on hard floors


after 2 weeks it should be still under warranty. but my guess is you have hair etc wrapped around the brush tip vac so you can see brush(es) remove all string,hair etc... from around the brush area (may have to remove bottom to get all the hair etc... stuck around it. it also may have been jammed up pretty tight and continued use could snap the belt or burn out motor

Dyson DC07 hose has no suction


Just resolved the same problem...couldn't find a blockage anywhere, but pulled handle out of hose and extended hose as far as possible upward. Aha! There was blockage in the hose at the very bottom where the flexible hose meets the rigid part.. There is a lever which releases the entry to the bottom of the hose. A pencil, lots of coins, a crumpled receipt and general dirt were stuck. Easy to clean and now it works like new again.

Dirt from the back of my machine


I had the same symptom. Lay the cleaner on its side locate the rubber flap at the bottom of the rear grey channel. Get a piece of wire (I used an old curtain wire that has an hook)and go fishing. I got about 2 handfulls of old fibre followed by the dust when I turned it upright.
