    Does the cone with all the little holes seperate from the top piece that is gray and purple with the handle (when you pull the canister off to empty)? We see stuff up in there and can't seem to get it out....

    I've had this vacuum for about a year now, and I love it. But lately, it always has the high pitched whine and isn't picking up - when I check the filter, it's full of dust, dirt, and dog hair. This never used to happen - I could go several months withough cleaning the filter, and now suddenly, I have to clean it every week. The rest of the vacuum is clean. What could the problem be?

    We have EXACTLY the same problems with our Dyson Animal; we went for months without cleaning the filter and now we must do it every time we use the vacuum. Additionally, it is making the same whiny sound and the suction actually cuts off and we have to touch the little hole on the back botton left of the vacuum in order to get it to come back on. We have cleaned as much as we can and nothing seems to work!

    I have the same problem, and Dyson is a fraud with their claim of never clogging. My filter is CLOGGED with hair and other **** the CANISTER should be collecting. What a fraud for a $550 vac.

I found that the rubber seal on the bottom of my cyclone is not properly seated to the bottom of canister, I guessed when I removed the clear canister bin completely from cyclone unit for cleaning, I put the cyclone down on the floor and rubber seal accidentally move upward just a little. this creates a small gap on the bottom when I reassembled it, (since seal is up from it original position a little). I pulled rubber seal down to its original position, you will notice that there should not be a gap on the bottom at all, this way you do not have to clean or should not have to clean the filter but once a month or even less.

I've had this problem as well which started for me after using the Dyson to clean up a pile of confectioners sugar my son dumped out. Various nooks and crannies inside the Dyson became clogged causing irregular behavior of the vacuum. Clean the cyclone as others have suggested but also get inside the cyclone for a more thorough cleaning. There are 3 hex screws by the handle, remove these and take the handle off. You can now see the tops of the cones which for 4 were completely caked with sugar. Scrub each cone out good and blow compressed air in each to really blast out the clogs. Take off all other removable piping and clean thoroughly. This should return the unit to its regular operating state and hopefully stop debris from making it through to the filter. Hope this helps.

It sounds like the cleaner hasn't been reassembled correctly after emptying. I would have to look to give a definite answer or check with Dyson.

If you are getting dirt, hair, debris, etc. on your filter it is because of the rubber ring at the bottom not being seated properly. It took me buying a new filter and it getting clogged after a few swipes to figure out. Wish I would have seen this earlier!

Hi if you turn vac over and look at the cover that hides the brush roller and remove the cover ? it is held by nylon twist 45 degree left type screws ? then you may find the brush housing clogged as well as the channel flow tube below the brush ? lift brush out and release from belt to enable to clean of hairs/carpet strands etc ? then reassemble next remove the clear canister and clean you will then see the cone/air filter ? it has hundreds of holes that get clogged due to vacuum created in cyl use a small implement and poke every hole clear ? if these are clogged vacuum remains in operative resulting in no vac at pickup head/brush beater roller assume you have replaced the disposable filters? hope this helps not an uncommon/fault and easy remedy

My vacuum has lost the suck when I try to use the hose


Hey there! It sounds like you may possibly have a clog in your hose. Try removing the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends. Use a broom stick to loosen and remove any clogs from the hose. Your filters can also affect suction power so be sure to clean and replace any filters if needed. Hope this helps!

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...


High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

Hoover eite rewind vacuum has blocked airflow, how do i fix?


Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then the blockage is in the hose, unhook the hose and dig out the debris, if hose isn't blocked, then clean out the filters, if they get clogged, then air can;t flow thru them and you won't have suction. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then it is clogged down in the nozzle asm. there is an inlet by the brush roll and it comes up to where the hose plugs into. Clean the clog out.

Sounds like you have a clog. Make sure the filters are clean, replace if it has been more then a year, check the inlet down by the brush roll, your clog maybe there.

Does not pick up anything and makes weird noise


I had the same problem with very low suction and weird noises, the orange light kept coming on.
I always empty the cannister and clean out any hair from the roller. I would take the filter outside and clean it as good as possible. I don't know if I can post a picture on here or not, but I will try. It is unbelievable how much hair comes from long haired girls. Particulary my daughter. Back to the point...
I was cleaning out a drawer one day and came across an extra filter. I put the new filter on, and its like brand new again!
Man, did I feel like an idiot! Just needed a new filter.
