My dyson vacum cleaner does not suckup dirt but the suction works?


You have to try to lower the basis of your vacuum cleaner, in order to make it closer to the earth, this way it will "**** the dust' much better.

Lost suction from cleaning dyson roller brush


Hello,

This is actually a very common problem that we see for repair on Dyson Vacuums. Usually what happens is that the vacuum doesn't loose suction like most people think. You can test this by feeling the suction power on the hose. If you have suction coming from here, then most likely the machine isn't clogged.

What happens is that the bottom soleplate on the vacuum cleaner can easily be re-installed the incorrect way. If this happens the brushes on the vacuum cleaner can not even hit the carpet, which makes the vacuum feel like it's not picking up, but when the suction is tested from the hose it has plenty.

We see a lot of Dysons come in for repair with this problem. The bottom plate is not flush with the rest of the vacuum cleaner. Here's a picture of what an improperly installed bottom soleplate looks like:

When the bottom plate is put back on the vacuum, you should make sure that the bottom plate (the purple colored part in the picture) is flush with the agitator housing tray (red part in the picture). If not, the brushes will not hit the carpeting, and the vacuum won't really pick up anything.

This is how a correctly installed bottom soleplate should look like:

This should be the first thing you should check on your vacuum cleaner as it's the easiest and most common solution. If this doesn't fix your Dyson, please just use the Clarification Request form, and let me know which exact Dyson model you have, and whether the vacuum has suction power from the hose, whether the brushes turn when set to the carpet setting, and how old the vacuum is. I'd be happy to try and further diagnosis the problem with you.

I hope that this was helpful to you. If it helped you, please be sure to rate the repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner.

Thank you very much,

Chris J.

My Dyson DC14 ANimal vacum cleaner has lost a lot of its suction, i have cleaned the regular filter but this does not seem to have improved it much. JAmie


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

A loss of suction is most likely caused by a blockage or a dirty filter. If you have cleaned the filter, it would be worth checking the machine through for a blockage by following the user guide or the diagnostics in the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

If you are still having difficulties with your Dyson, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Dyson vacum cleaner lost suction got the DC14 and it doesn't seem to have much suction in the floor head, the hose still has good suction. I have checked all the paths for blockage and there is none.


Forgive me if I'm thinking of the wrong model, but I think the DC14 has a short length of clear plastic tubing between the floor head and the fixed vacuum pipe-work. This tube can split and let air in which, of course, reduces suction at the head. You need to inspect it very carefully, as the split is often where it's really difficult to see!
If this is the problem, a repair with tape is possible but rarely completely satisfactory. A new bit of tube is the best solution.

I just purchased a DC07 Dyson vacuum cleaner. It is not vacumming my floor - I have hardly any suction at all. Do I need to activate something in order to initiate the suction?


With vac upright suction is sent to the hose ie top of vac handle when handle is tilted down to the user vacuum position it should send the power suction to the floor also make sure collection bin it in securely that make be the problem
