ALTHOUGH MOST FILTERS SAY WASHABLE THEY DO STILL NEED TO BE REPLACE AS WASHING THEM SHRINKS THE FILTER AND EVENTUALLY CLOSES THE AIRWAYS. WHICH ALSO IF NOT REPLACE WILL OVER HEAT MOTOR IN MACHINE AND CAUSE MOTOR FAILURE.

Blowing noise when after a few minutes of switching on a dyson dc07


Hello, where is it blowing to/from? Take out all the filters and run the machine without them, did it go away? Is you bin empty? Have you cleaned out the cyclone recently/ever? (See Youtube, "DC07 cyclone") are all you pipes clear? Is there a hole in the flexi hose in the beater head? Does it blow in the upright position as well as the vacuuming position? Pull off the access parts and check them for a blockage.

Checking these things will help find the problem, also try another cyclone unit from a friend and check results.

Can anyone help with an older Euro Pro EP055, It has very little suction.


Cleaning filters on a bagless vacuum helps but filters should be replaced frequently, as often as every 3 to 6 months on some vacuums. Foam filters aren't as critical to replace because the pores are very large (which also means they don't filter out the small particles) so they don't clog as easily but paper filters have much tighter pores which become clogged and restrict the airflow. Cleaning paper style filters with water which can pack the fine dust into the pores clogging the airflow even more.
I recommend replacing filters st least onceor twice per year and cleaning them after each use for best performance and longer vacuum life. Blowing the dust out with an air compressor is my preferred method.
Changing filters frequently on a bagged vacuum isn't as critical because the bag collects most of the fine dust, dirt and gunk. The surface area of a bag is much greater than that of a filter so a bag is less likely to get clogged than a filter. Most homeowners change the bag once per month which keeps the air flowing smoothly.

The vacuum i've had for 6 months has very liittle suction power. checked that the belt is on. cleaned filter. checked to see if hoses were clogged. I used a super vac to suction any debris out of...


as this unit has 3 filters on it, a lot of people forget about the one filter that will cause all of your trouble here.

There is the exhaust hepa filter, no problem, your unit is pretty new, it shouldn't be a problem.
There is the circular filter in the chamber where all your dust and debris collects. It is in the top portion and will come out with a twist. This filter is washable. Warm water and no soap.

The third filter, and this is the one that is most commonly overlooked, is just below the dirt container you can take out and clean. It is in a grey "tray" that pulls out and the sponge filter is in the tray. As a word of warning, it is probably pretty dirty. Again just wash it, warm water no soap, and you should be good to go.

PLEASE make sure that the filters are DRY before putting them back into your machine.

Good luck.

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.


It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

Envirovac kicks debris back at my feet and is loud


It's clogged!
Many so-called "environmentally friendly" vacuum cleaners have multiple stage filters; the usual configuration is a standard filter followed by a HEPA filter or equivalent. Standard filters can be a paper bag or a bagless, removable container.
From time to time, the secondary filter will get clogged, so it doesn't matter whether you change the bag or empty the container, performance will not improve.
If you have access to compressed air, try removing the secondary filter and blowing it clean with a high pressure air nozzle. If that doesn't work, check the hose to make sure it's clear. If you are using a rug beater attachment, make sure it has not clogged at its inlet.
