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.

Very little suction at beater brush.


Hey, this is Leland with Crucial Vacuum,

If the brush bar is not working properly there may be several reasons.

Firstly, the motor may be the problem. If you hear any noises while the machine is running, you should contact the original manufacturer for trouble shootingsolutions.

Secondly, your vacuum may be in need of new parts. By changing either the brushroll or belts, you should be able to increase the quality of the suction.

What does a flashing light on the dc28 vaccuum mean


There are a few things a flashing light could mean. One is that the beater bar has something stuck on it. Or, it could be that the bag or canister is full. Then again, maybe something is stuck in one of the intakes. Be careful when checking the beater bars. Unplug the vacuum before touching them, you wouldn't want your hands getting injured or fingers broken:( Clear anything that is wrapped around the beater bars, hair, string, etc., and then check the hoses to make sure nothing is stuck in them. If you have suction, the interior is clear. If not, then check in there to make sure nothing is clogging it. Good luck and be careful:)

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.

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.
