Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

I need more suction. The Head is too high on my carpet.

We have owned our dyson for less than a year and it only worked well in the first few months. Something is off. If we manually push the head or front of the vaccume down to hug the carpet we get better suction.I am dissapointed, but will be thrilled to solve this, so that our new vaccume does its job. Please help.

Hi.

A slitght adjustment can be made by either screwing on short transparant internal hose on top of floor head tighter or undoing it turn.

Do this on A table as you need to get down to be able to view sole pate movement

Each time you adjust hose stand vac up on the table & pull handle back as if cleaning carpet you must not push head of vac down on the table.

Now look at sole plate usually when they are wrong the sole plate bottom back end tilts up lifting brush from carpet.

Now tap front of head down if sole plate springs back up lifting brush up again adjust hose a bit more.

What you are trying to do is get sole plate as horizontal as you can.

If you really cant get it to pick up dirt any better try fitting new hose they are more sprigier from new,

We had an older dyson vacuum that worked great until it had to be replaced and now our new one it works great on short carpet but is very difficult to push on thicker carpet.


Hi Ronnie, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your new Dyson vacuum on this particular type of deeper-pile carpet. It's possible your new machine has higher suction at the cleaner head, and this could mean it needs slightly higher push-force on certain carpets with deeper, denser pile, or thick underlay. You may find it helps to use the vacuum with the brush bar switched - carpet manufacturers will sometimes advise vacuuming deep-pile carpets in this way.

However, I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can take some further details about the issue. When you have your Dyson vacuum easily to hand, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). Our experts will be happy to discuss your concerns.

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

I have a Dyson DC44 Animal that I cannot get to work properly. It seems to have lost its suction after the first use, which wasn't that impressive. I have two cats, and when I run the vacuum over my carpet...


Hi Lauren, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC44 has twice the suction of other cordless vacuums, and we certainly wouldn't expect concerns about performance. Boost mode provides 8 minutes of highest suction power for really stubborn dirt or clinging pet hair, but for day to day vacuuming normal mode should be sufficient.

From your description it sounds like your machine may have a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. Without suction to carry debris through the machine and into the clear bin, hair may be more likely to wrap around the brush bar. We're happy to help you check for this, and to remove any obstructions.

You may also want to wash the filter if this hasn't been done recently. We recommend doing this at least once a month, using cold water without detergent:


When you have your DC44 fully-charged and near to hand, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU). We look forward to providing further assistance.

Dyson dc23 lost suction


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC23, but I'm sure we can help. If your vacuum doesn't seem to have as much power as it should do, this is likely to be due to a blockage in the Turbine head, wand or hose. In addition to this, the filter may need washing.

To check for any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1298&product=DC23-TURBINEHEAD-US


In normal use, we recommend washing the filter 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 the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

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

Best wishes,

Jack

Just purchased a new Dyson animal vacuum and cannot push it thru the carpeting. I have it set to the highest pile carpeting but it is impossible to push. Seems to work fine on less thick carpeting.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your Dyson cleaner on this particular carpet. You may want to contact your carpet manufacturer to check it's suitable for cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush. Manufacturers sometimes recommend cleaning certain types of carpeting using suction only.

If you have any further queries about using or maintaining your Dyson vacuum cleaner, please get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to provide the information and assistance you need. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC32 Animalpro. If the turbine head doesn't seem to be working correctly, and is not blocked, you may need to wash the cleaner's filter. Under normal use, this needs to be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours. For guidance on washing the filter, please see the guide linked below:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=1847&product=DC32-ANIMAL

This should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance, but if your problem with the turbine head persists, please get in touch with us directly. If it's necessary to replace the turbine head, it should be covered by our 5-year warranty, as long as the cleaner has been used in accordance with the terms and conditions listed in the user guide. You can call us free on 08002980298 - our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Some of the dyson units strip down further using torx bits, sometimes the internal holes of the plastic components get clogged with fine dust that hardens, causing loss of suction. Although the filters are cleaned regularly the airflow is reducedthus giving poor cleaning power.

Everyone needs to own an air compressor,
if you own a bagless vacuum

You blow it out every other time you use it.

Without compressed air, all vacuums will just
