Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The brush motor spindle (where the belt hooks onto) keeps getting clogged with dog hair/carpeting. I have to take cover (3 plastice screws) off, roller off, take belt off, clean spindle in unit with needle nose pliers, then reassemble unit. within a few minutes, it clogs again. called dyson, was sent wider belt (they have had similiar calls) and same issue happens. have a golden retriever dog. we usually vacuum 3-4 times weekly. has anyone else had this problem? for a dog vacuum, seems odd that this happens. any ideas? oh, in the beginning, this wasnt a issue and never had problem. just started up one day and continues.
If you have animals get rid of the dyson and go to a vacuum that has a metal brushroll and better airflow. There is no fix on the dyson they just are not good on hair of any kind.

I have the same problem, it started happening once I received a new brush bar with a wider belt. The technician on the phone told me I trying vacuum up to much dog hair. The problem occurs even before the debris cannister is half full.
