SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: Dyson Dc07

I had the same issue and solved it easily.My experience is the same as the March 6th response/ When you push your foot onto the base and then recline the handle, use your toe to gently push the very front of the base down closer to the carpet. This creates a much stronger seal and suction and picks up every bit of dirt easily. If i do not do this extra step the suction is much much less. I tried an experiment with sand that I poured onto my carpet. Initially, I went over the sand 4 times and the dyson 07 would only pick up 50 percent of the sand. I then poured more sand onto the carpet, and this time pushed the front lip down so it was contacting the carpet. This time only two passes were needed to completely **** up all the sand. Not sure why this is not in the manual but it really works. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Dyson cleaner keeps cutting out, no blockage found, filter clean.

1. Check the on/off button these can also be troublesome and if you've stood on the cable once or twice you could have a break in the wire and it's shorting, check by turning on and wiggle cable around where it enters machine.
2. Faulty thermocouple, it is held in a white plastic housing screwed with one T15 torx screw to the motor housing. You could replace it but I just shorted mine with some wire and it hasn't failed since and more importantly not caught fire yet!

SOURCE: dyson 18 losing suction

Check the HEPA filter if it has one. This bit of foam gets clogged over time and significantly reduces the suction especially if you've been vacuuming a lot of very dusty areas i.e. dust from building work etc. Just wash the filter with lots of water and leave to dry before reinserting.

Dyson DC 25 power shuts off in upright position


To clarify, do you mean the suction and brush motion shut off in the upright position, or that the entire unit shuts off?

If the latter, most Dyson uprights shut off the brush unit in the full upright position and shunt the suction into the handle for use with the accessories. There is also an on/off for the brush, next to the main power button for the DC25. If it's off ( or stuck that way), no brush motion. The manual also notes, 'for use, turn on power and click the foot pedal in back to recline the unit.' (Link to manual here:
http://www.dyson.com/medialibrary/files/dyson/support/downloads/uk/floorcare/manuals/DC25_Manual.pdf See Page 8). The
'High Reach Cleaning' section also notes that the brush bar won't rotate when the vacuum is in the full upright position.

If you are completely losing power, the manual notes that the unit will shut off if the bar is jammed, or if there is a significant line blockage that makes the motor overheat. If this is happening, check the accessory line in the handle for blockage.

Good Luck :-)

Why won't my Dyson DC28 animal handle won't tilt down to vacuum


Hi Robert, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you're having difficulty reclining your DC28 from the upright position, it's possible something like a pen or pencil has been accidentally vacuumed up, and is jamming the changeover valve.

Our Support guide should help you check for this: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc28/dc28-animal/using-my-dyson-list/redirect-to-flo-dc07-gen-how-to-remove-a-blockage/flo-dc07-gen-how-to-remove-a-blockage/redirect-to-check-ubend-cover-dc28/check-ubend-cover-dc28

MY DYSON WONT **** UP ANYTHING? I HAVE CLEANED EVERYTHING I CAN THINK UP OUT!


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If your machine is not picking up from the base correctly, check that the brush control dial is in the centre position when upright and then moves forward when the head is released. If the brush bar is still not spinning when switched on in the vacuuming position, check the base for blockages and remove any threads or hairs from the brush bar as outlined in your user guide or on our website.

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

Kind regards

No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

When I use my Dyson in the upright position it does not **** up the dirt on the carpet. But if I attach a tool and use the hose it does. I have checked to see if there is a blockage any where and there...


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

I would recommend checking the brush bar to see if its spinning when you switch the machine on and release the head into the vacuuming position. If its not, check the brush control dial on the head of the cleaner to ensure that when the machine is stood upright, the dial is in the centre position and not switched to the hard/smooth floor setting. When in the centre position, on releasing the head this dial should move forward to the on position and the brush bar should start turning.

If the brush bar is fine, its possible there is a blockage in the base. The Support section on our website has full diagnostics that you may find useful, please visit www.dyson.com.

I hope this information has been useful. If so, please feel free to leave us a testimonial!

Cant undoe the Dyson in order to clean it


To clean the brush bar area: Lie the machine on its back, look for the three plastic screws under there. Turn them anti-clockwise using a 2p coin (or a quarter if American) and the sole plate comes off that way. This gives you access to the brush bar to clean it.

Shuts off in upright position and spitting dirt back out


it is a blockage. Dyson cuts off in this case to prevent overload. Also leaking dirt indicates blockage. Strip everything out you can. Remove foot plate on base and check for hair or fibre blockage. it may be small and in an odd place.. seek and ye shall find. If not, return to dealer for service. Good vacuum though.

Suction not working in upright


Hi.

You will have A blockage in either the wand or hose, completely remove them from machine the hose unclips at the bottom back of machine,
Now switch machine on with this removed if machine sounds ok then remove the blockage from hose or wand.

If machine still poor suction & noisey with hose & wand removed check the (U) shaped inspection port for blockages.

Let me know how you get on.
