Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Dyson Animal motor is running, beater bar is turning but very little if any suction. No suction from hose either. The inside canister is filling and moving, so there is some dirt being sucked in there. I have thoroughly cleaned all filters but not sure what is causing the problem. Any ideas?

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.

    Despite the claims that the Dyson vacuum does not lose suctions, I've had occasions where mine has lost suction even after I've emptied the canister. What I found is that for the piece inside the canister that gets emptied, there are hundreds of tiny holes. If you vacuum up lint of the right (or wrong) size, it can lead to these holes getting clogged.

    There is an easy fix though. Just get a short metal brush and have at these holes. It knocks out the lint that gets stuck in them, and you'll get full suction on your Dyson vacuum again.

Dyson canister DC39 - beater bar won't spin once it touches the floor


Some models have the beater bar driven by the airflow from the vacuum rather than a small motor. It takes a lot of suction to turn the brush roll. Make sure there are no restrictions which will reduce the airflow and suction. Replacing the filters may help if the vacuum motor still has adequate suction.

Fault finding


Have you accidentally switched off the beater bar via the dial on the head? Some models have a 'hard floors' and a 'carpets' setting (which disengages/engages the beater bar).

Power only comes on when vacuum is not upright


Power or beater bar? Beater bar is supposed to turn off when upright, but suction motor should still run.

No suction for rugs but the hose works fine. Removed the canister and suction is at that point


Hello,

Remove the base plate and beater bar. Clean the suction cavity behind the beater bar. That's where they almost always plug up.

If suction is not what it was, check all of your hoses and connections for vacuum leaks. And the beater roll should always be turning - check out the belt for slippage.

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

No suction


so the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out.
