Question about Dyson DC25 Animal Bagless Upright Vacuum
Seems to spit haircetc back out
Posted by Anonymous on
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25. If the machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, and debris seems to be coming back out of the cleaner head, this is likely to be due to a blockage. The filters may also need a wash.
The easiest way to locate and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
In normal use, the filters should be washed at least once every 3 months as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for them to dry completely before replacing them.
This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

SOURCE: Spitting Out Debris
The beater bar (rotating brush) can kick back crumbs if the suction is not at 100%. This can happen if the vacuum has been used for a number of months without a thorough cleaning.
First thing is to not let the dirt canister get too full. The more full it is, the more dirt is sucked into the "cyclones" which are meant for only fine particles, not big pieces of dirt.
I'd then check your elbow hose connections (the ones that snap out easily). Then check the Hepa filter. When I lost suction with my Dyson DC07 the Hepa filter was a mess. But the inner cannister seemed to be really dirty also, so I dismantled it (this will void the warranty) and washed it out under the kitchen sink. Do not try this unless you know exactly what you're doing, but mine was an extreme case, as the Dyson was used by family members for about three years and they probably never cleaned the Hepa filter, etc.
Now I'll at least wash the Hepa filter (and housing) twice a year, as Dyson recommends.

Testimonial: "problem solved - was the brush reset button that makes the brushes go round. "
SOURCE: the brush head won't move
Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24. Your cleaner is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the brushbar if it gets tangled with a rug fringe, shoelace etc. After making sure the brushbar is free of threads, hair or other obstructions, you'll be able to reset the cleaner and get the brushbar running again. The easiest way to do this is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
Use something like the eraser-end of a pencil to depress the reset button, and make sure you push it in firmly until you hear an audible 'click'.
Please note, the brushbar will never rotate when the cleaner is standing in the upright position, or if you've turned it off using the silver brush control switch located next to the red on/off switch.
By following these steps, you should be able to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've tried this and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you recommend the best course of action.
