Dyson o7 animal pick up problems

It picks up dirt and dog hair but it won't pick up fuzz. I have dark carpet and my husband wears white socks that get lint on it. Why do I have to go over the same piece of fuzz 6 or 8 times from 4 different directions and it still doesn't always get it. I have cleaned every filter in the vacuum that it mentions in the directions. It's very frustrating.
thanks for ny help before hand.

Hi.

If your machine is A few years old it may need new brush roller fitted.

To check roller for wear lie machine on the floor & pull back head end as if vaccuming carpet.

Now get A rule or straight edge hold this over brush roller & sole plate oppening.

Now rotate brush slowly by hand the bristles of the brush should just kiss the edge of rule. If ther is a gap you will need toreplace the roller.

The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

We bought the Dyson DC66 a few weeks ago and all of a sudden it will not pick up dog hair or clean the carpets properly


The filters probably need cleaning. The filters on new Dysons block very quickly initially because of how much they pick up. Youll probably remember the feelings of astonishment and shame at how much dirt was picked up on first use. I know I was

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband...


Check to see if your brush is not worn down, they do wear with age - compare the length of the bristles with a new one. Replace the brush ir there is a significant difference in bristle lengths. Also check the flexible bend where the pick-up head joins onto the upright section for blockages and fluff.

MY DYSON DCO7 DOES NOT PICK UP FUZZ AND HAIR FROM CARPETS


check if brushroll still spins when it comes in contact with the carpet. Your belts could be so stretched that its just slipping on the brushroll.

My bissel vacume was not picking up the dirt on the carpet. So I found that the hose was clogged. I unclogged it but the vacume still is not picking up the dirt. I also changed the filters.


I found out that if you remove the front filter holder, tip vacuum back and look down inside. Sometimes there is hair caught back in there and you won't get suction. I had to use something long, knife, very long type tweezers, to pull all the hair out. Worked great after that. About half way through vacuuming I will stop and remove the foam rubber filter and clean it. Oh yea, you will have to use a flashlight to look down inside to see all the hair caught behind the foam rubber filter cup.

Not picking up fuzz


I've had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal, although there WAS suction and the machine seemed in otherwise good condition, the vacuum seemed to be working normally, yet very little was vacuumed up. I would go over and over sections of carpet and get very little debris in the container. In my case, the cleaning brush roller bar was competely covered in debris (hair, dirt, string, stuffing from our chewed up dog toys, etc.). I removed the bottom cover and manually removed all this debris from the cleaner/brush roller, reattached the cover and it worked like new with great suction.

Does not pick up loose lint or fuzz from carpet.


Sounds like the belt is loose or it's not on at all. Make sure the belt is wrapped around the brush and is locked in by the metal.

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet


If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.

Dog hair from vacuum is being laid back onto carpet


my plush carpet and dog hair do not go together! I realized with this particular model and in my environment, the bag fills in one vacuuming! I literally dug out all the dirt I could by taking it apart and then changing the bag. Voila!
