Check for a clog between the hose and the front opening.

Hello,

It sounds like to me that you probably have a clog in the hose port, or that your attachment hose may have a hole in it. Both of these problems are common problems on the Dyson DC07 model.

The first place you should check is the clog part that's directly underneath of the hose. Pull this port out and see if you can see anything lodged inside the clog port:

If you aren't able to find the clog here, then pull the wand and hose out of the vacuum. With the vacuum cleaner off, pull the hose out as far as it goes, and inspect the entire hose assembly from the end that the wand connects into, until the end that fits into the vacuum itself. A lot of times this hose will tear due to the sharp end of the wand as the hose is being pushed back up the wand.

If neither of these solutions worked, please just use the clarification request form here on the Fixya repair page, and I'd be happy to do some more advanced diagnosing with you to figure this out.

If this was helpful to you, please help other Fixya users find this answer by rating the repair helpful, by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair.

Thank you very much,

Chris J.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25 All Floors. If you don't seem to have as much suction as usual, you may need to wash the filters. This should be done at least once every 3 months. You can see the correct way to do this in the video embedded below.

    It's also a good idea to check for and remove anything which could be blocking the cleaner. Our online guide shows the easiest way to do this:

      Hi there,

      When the cleaner is standing in the upright position, it's engineered to divert suction automatically from the cleaner head to the hose. The correct way to use the hose, wand and dusting tools is shown in the user guide:

      http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc07_opmanual_usa.pdf

      If there doesn't seem to be any suction coming through the hose when the cleaner is standing upright, you may need to check the machine for blockages. The easiest way to do this is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

      http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=4&product=DC07-SY-HEPA_US

      It's also a good idea to give the filter a wash, as demonstrated in the video below. Under normal use, this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without any detergents, and always make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours.

      By clearing any obstructions and washing the filter, 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).

      You need to have the vacuum cleaned out. If you are good with tools, just remove the motor and fans assembly, take the fans off and wash them. Brush ALL dirt out of the housing and reassemble. Your Electrolux dealer can do this but it isn't cheap. I used to be the service manager for my area. Since it isn't under warranty, you can have ANY reliable vacuum cleaner shop give a good cleanout. NEVER put anything into the cleaner to make it smell good. Electrolux cleaners get their power by having a straight through suction. The air goes through the motor. Adding smelly things can crystallize onto the motor and burn it out.

      Air filter:
      If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
      Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


      Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
      Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

      Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
      Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

      No suction from base but from hose have checked all on your page the roller brush turns well but no suction - not an old machine DC07 but been dropped. have checked all hoses & filters.


      Hi there,

      I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. If you have suction from the hose but not through the cleaner head, it sounds as if you may have a blockage somewhere. Although I note you've already checked for this, you might want to take a look at our support guide to ensure you haven't missed anything:

      http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=98&product=DC07-ANIMAL

      If the machine has been dropped, you may also want to check that the internal hose is still firmly attached to the machine at both ends, and is not split or damaged in any way. The video linked below shows where this hose is located, and how to replace it if necessary:

      http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=1989&product=DC07-ANIMAL

      Hopefully this should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if the internal hose appears to be correctly fitted and undamaged, and you cannot find any blockages, but still feel the cleaner is not picking up as well as it should do, please get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

      Why does my filter collect so much dog hair and decreases the suction of the machine. I clean and change (alternate) filters everytime I vacumn, that isn't normal, is it? It seems like I have a seal or...


      You obviously have a pet and it's good to see your machine is doing it's job. The only reason you could lose suction while collecting pet hair is due to the pet hair being a solid mass and air not been able to flow through the filters.( must be a lot of hair). Suction loss is only when the particles passing through your machine are dense therefore it will reduce suction and airflow . Very common on vacuum cleaners. Do not worry too much . Also check to see if you have Amy cracks in the seal between the drum and the vacuum cleaner itself

      Plenty of suction from the hose pipe itself but no suction when vacuuming the carpet


      Hello Can,

      Go through this guide to help find the issue www.builtinvacuum.com/flowchrt.html. You should have suction without a filter. The bottom is on the unit, right? It needs to be air tight.

      Hoover Freemotion Pets 200W has lost most of it's suction!


      if you take out the dirt cup at the top there should be a half moon orange that releases. inside of this half moon is a washable filter. rinse with warm water and let it dry completly before putting back into the machine. this should restore your suction. hope this helps.
