My Dyson DC07 just stopped running during operation

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Our machines are designed to shut off if they begin to overheat, and it sounds like that's what may have happened. This could be due to a blockage, or because the filter needs a wash. To resolve this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=51&product=DC07-SY-HEPA_US

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance, please give our Helpline a call so one of our advisors can run through some troubleshooting checks with you. Our UK Helpline number is 0800 298 0298. If you're based in the US, the number is 1-866-693-9766.

SOURCE: beater bar does not work dyson DC07

If the beater bar does not spin freely, and the belt still seems to be in place, then you may not need a new clutch, but you may need to reset the clutch.  This is done very simply by keeping the beater bar section of the vacuum flat on the floor and reclining the handle all the way to the floor so the entire vacuum lays flat. There is a mechanism in the vacuum which resets the clutch. You will probably not hear anything when the clutch resets.  I sat on the phone for an hour and a half to hear this simple technique is built into the vacuum, but excluded from all instructions and website customer service information.

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 DC07 works and cleans fine, but motor makes loud screaching sound.

If the screeching noise is happening at all times, it is most likely a motor failure; which unfortunately can only be resolved by complete replacement of the motor.
If it's a loud ratchety-screeching type sound, and is only occurring when the brush is set to carpet, it is most likely due to an obstruction of the brushroll or a problem with the clutch. Ensure that the brushroll can spin free, look for anything physically blocking it. Check the bearing ends on the brushroll, they can melt and cause the brushroll to not spin effectively. If neither of those two things resolves the problem, the clutch most likely needs replacement.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
59cbdbc.jpg
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo 57bd18a.jpg



4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off

5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.38c6322.jpg

6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo7a60cdc.jpg
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo 92fa764.jpg
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo 349cdfc.jpg

9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart d6aa9d9.jpg

10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

if youi are not getting any suction - remove and clean the filter ( tap it/brush it or use a air compressor to blow clean ). also check the hose near the bottom of the vacume where it bends - dirt loves to build up there and clog the hose.

Noisey DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum; lack of suction...


Hi there it's SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. It is very likely you have a problem in the radix assembly or the filter is actually worn out. Basically to test either simply remove one then turn it on to test. If it runs better with out the filter (washable is most likely culprit) simply purchase a new one. If it is the radix assembly that is the problem it is possible to clean inside the little tubes by taking off the top and literally clearing dirt and fluff out with the help of a coat hanger. Alternatively a new one can be purchased. If you are in Australia or New Zealand I can help you with either part. Just put in a request via the email link n our website. Hope this helps regards Alec
