Check the inspection air tubes on the Dyson - you don't say what model this is - and each model does have air inspection tubes but can be different to each model - which can usually clog up with dirt/debris thus making the machine difficult to pick up. Certainly sounds like there is some kind of clog between the main dust channel from the sole plate/floor head where the roller brush is.

Just stops working during hoovering


Hi, it sounds that you may have a fault in your cable sometimes the wire inside the cable gets broken and only connects now and again when in the right position. I remember reading some where about this person had a dyson and had to get the wire changed for a second time as this was the fault. They put it into a dyson repairer to get the job done as you have to remove the motor. I no that's what you need to do on a dc07 animal. If its not the cable then it could be the temp cut out switch my first motor would go for so long hoovering then just stop and you would have to wait till it had cooled down then it would go for another short time. I had to get a new motor that time but it was covered by dyson . When the dyson man arrived i told him it was cutting out and he just fitted a new motor. I have since just replaced that motor myself rather than buy a new dyson. Always remember to remove the plug from the socket when doing repairs to your hoover.

How do I use the washing bit on my dyson dc 23


Hi there,

I'm not sure from your question exactly which part you're referring to. If you mean the filter, this needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

Hopefully this answers your question, but if you're referring to a different part, please let me know, or call us free on 0800 298 0298, so we can provide assistance. Our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Best wishes,

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire...


It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the carbon brushes wear down which is normal. However, the contact wire from the brush to its connector is set so that when the brush wears down, the wire is short enough to stop the spring etc from damaging the commutator. The end result is that you get an intermittent operation of the motor before it finally dies.
I believe all the DYSONs come with the option of both motors and you cannot really tell which motor you have until you take the thing to bits. You also cannot change motors without changing various other parts on the hoover. On my DC 05 the writing on the YDK motor tells you which one it is.
This website www. tasweb.org ,select the DC 05 option and scroll down tells you how to take the thing to bits. A search on google etc for your DC 07 may give similar results. Best of luck!

Ensure plug is not in the socket.

remove the guard from around the roller on base of Dyson by turning 3 screws 90 Deg anti clock wise.
unclip belt from the metal spindle from the motor.

Pull out the roller.

Pull the end of the roller out.
They do not screw, they just pull out.

Clean the muck out from inside the roller ends.

Put end caps back on.

put belt on and thread through the slot.

put belt back on to motor spindle.
