Question about Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Loud screaming noise when running

My DC08 vacume is about 3 years old and has gradually been getting louder and louder with each use.
It is at a point now that I am unable to think while vacuming and it gives me a headache. Is it a NEW motor that is required?

The vacuum is clogged. Disassemble it as much as you can and you will find the problem.

My dyson dc24 brush bar will not turn and there is a very loud screaming noise coming from the Hoover


Something has jammed the brush roller and the screaming sound is the motor shaft trying to move the stuck drive belt. The vacuum will have to be disassembled to find and remove the jamming material.

When you turn the power off on dc08,as the motor slows down you get a pop sound


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC08 is making an unusual noise when you turn it off, this could be the suction relief valve changing position. If the relief valve is activating during use there may be a blockage somewhere in your machine, and the filter may also need a wash.

To check for blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08/dc08-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/check-the-floor-tool

In normal use we recommend washing both parts of the pre-filter at least once every 3-6 months, using cold water without detergent. Allow at least 24 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing them in the machine.


This should help, but if you continue to have difficulty after giving these steps a try, please contact our experts directly on 0800 298 0298.

Try plugging the hose that goes to brake booster and see if the noise stops couse it seems to me it has a leak..if not spray carb cleaner around the vacume hoses while it is running and where the leak is will couse the idle to go down..

Noise


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your Dyson vacuum. From your description, it sounds like the model number you've supplied may not be correct, as DC08 is a cylinder vacuum which doesn't use a belt-driven brush bar. So we can confirm exactly which model you own and take you through some quick diagnostic checks, I'd encourage you to contact us directly. You can reach our experts by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
We'll look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes,

My vacuum sounds like it is screaming the entire time it is on. We have cleaned out every possible area, but it is still extremely load. Any suggestions?


Is it cleaning as good as it used to? 1) If not there may be an air leak.
A crack or a hole will allow air to rush in. The motor will make a louder noise when not under load. 2) Have you changed house locations, ie Country? Diffferent house voltage will cause this screaming.

Vacum cleaner has poor suction


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear your DC08 isn't picking up as well as usual. This may be due to a blockage in the floor tool, wand or hose, and the filter may also need a wash.

To locate and remove any blockages in the machine, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc08/dc08-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/check-the-floor-tool

In normal use, the filter 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 12 hours for the filter to dry completely somewhere warm before replacing it.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call our customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

Where is the dyson reset button? Mine is a Model 08 something. It is about 6 years old.


The DC08 does not have a reset button. (at least, UK models don't and you don't say where you are).

Dyson DC07 is very loud, roaring from the motor


It usually gets louder as the filters clog up and eventually burns out. Try replacing all the filters and giving the bin and the vortex generator a good blow out with compressed air. Fluff can stay inside and cause the motor to strain hence the increased noise.

It must still be under warranty -used to be 3 but now 5 years -so if it doesn't improve contact Dyson and they will repair it free of charge.

Could be the bearings, especially if the machine is old or the dust filters have not been replaced regularly.
Check to see if the noise is still present after the machine winds down when the power is turned off. A rattling sounds means bearings.
