First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Is there a deodorizer for the dyson animal vac, when it's running it smells foul?


I have the Animal CD-07 and what I do is take some Lavender oil and place a few drops of it on the filter. That way at least it smells better. Works for me!

Sour odor


You should always put a new hepa filter in any E and E2 series Rainbow vacuum, when it taken to a new home. It will smell like the home that it was in, until you do.

You can also use fragrances, and deodorizer air freshener in your vacuum, which not only eliminates odors, it add fresh aromas to your air in your home, also.

Replace the hepa filter first thing.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

How can we avoid the odor that we usually have with other vac exhausts? will cleaning the filters as suggested really keep that from happening?


Bagless vacuums have a real problem with bacterial growth. That is what produces the odor you are smelling. Wash the cup in an enzyme and the filters too if they are the washable type. Make sure everything is dry before you reassemble the vac. Then turn on the vac and pull the hose out like you would be using the tools. Holding the hose end that has the suction, spray a small burst of Lysol Spray into the hose opening so the vacuum "sucks" the Lysol through it's interior. This will kill the bacteria in the hose and the plastic housing of your vacuum. Usually 3 bursts works fine. If you spray too much and get your machine "wet" with the lysol you could damage your motor so small bursts are better than a long spraying action

Smells like wet dog


Try vacuuming up some baking soda or use some carpet deodorizer then vacuum that up.

Dyson Animal, lost suction and bypass valve seems to be loose


Dear terrygivens, 2-17-2009 4:12am EST (USA)

Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!

Dog smell after cleaning


This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units. They are easier to clean and the odors go out with the bag. About the only thing you can do is put a deodorizer in the machine and keep the filter clean. Be careful not to use petroleum based deodorizers as they can affect the plastic.
