Height adjustment does not work


Hello! The vacuum does not move up and down when you change the height setting. When the handle is reclined is when the height of the nozzle will adjust. Hope this was helpful!

My carpet nap is very thick and it is very hard to vacuum with my Dyson dc17 animal. I need to know if there is a way to adjust the height on the vacuum


Hi Deb,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using DC17 on this particular carpet type. DC17 is engineered to adjust automatically to different floor types, and does not need manual height adjustment.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming deep or delicate carpet piles with the rotating brush bar turned off. We'd recommend checking with the manufacturer of your carpeting as they'll be best placed to offer advice on the correct way of cleaning it. To turn off the brush bar on DC17, just use the silver brush control switch next to the red on/off switch.

It's also worth checking that the soleplate is fitted correctly. Any dirt or residue on the soleplate can be removed with a damp cloth - make sure it's completely dry before refitting it. You can find out how to remove and replace it here: http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=962&product=DC17-ANIMAL

I hope this helps, but if you would like further advice after you've given this a try, please email your details to askdysonUS@dyson.com. One of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Jack

Height adjustment not working


Manual says to tilt the vacuum back so the front wheels are off the ground (unit turned off of course) and make the adjustment. May take some back-and-forth force, but should adjust. If not, then something is jamming the switch.

Height Adjustment on Hoover Wind Tunnel doesn't seem to do the job.


You changed the belt that drives the brushroll, it is a flat stretch belt. The V belt also should be replaced every year or two max. It will not be stretched out like the flat belt but with normal use the side of the v will of wear off and the belt will be a little thinner which can cause it to slip on the pulley. The V belt drives the transmission. The flat belt goes from the transmission to drive the brushroll. The burning smell could come from the V belt if it's slipping real bad.

Height adjustment not working.


It's likely the circuit board that controls the height adjustment motor, or the motor itself. Your local sebo service center will be better able to test to see just what is wrong. Though it wouldn't hurt to take a look at the boards sometimes they're visibly burnt, or connections can be loose. Good Luck!

How can you do a height adjustment on Oreck XL Series vacuum


Oreck makes two different attachments for putting on the bottom of your vacuum to raise it up. They have one for the older Classic styles and one for the newer XL models. This is the only way you can raise the brush on an Oreck.

Hey everyone, first time on forums. I have a Eureka True Clean vacuum that I found in the garbage. I have disassembled everything, cleaned and restored it. Looks perfect now. Suction from hose is powerful,...


Change the belt on the unit, and adjust the height adjustment until the brushes are just touching the carpet. I know you mentioned the belt looks good, but when you get the new EXT-U belt, you will notice a size difference. Good luck!

How to change belt on Hoover DM6227T


Hi Diane
There are two options here; Go to the Hoover UK website and download the user manual (http://service.hoover.co.uk/manuals/Manuals.aspx?Section=6) and add in the DM6227 code and number without the T letter. The pdf downloadable (and free) user manual will upload to your computer.

Or follow this method:
There are two rear screws on the top of the hood of which you'll have to swing the handle all the way down to reveal both screws at the back of the top hood. Undo these screws and put them in a safe place. Then gently prise off the main control selector height dial and the top hood should be able to pop off easily. Then you'll main roller brush should be revealed as well as the broken belt.

Once the belt is removed, clean the brush roll of any threads or hairs that have stuck the bristles down. Then fit new belt, align the roller bar properly including the new drive belt and then refit the top hood back on, snap fitting down, two screws in and gently refit the control dial height adjuster back on making sure the front raised part of the dial knob is facing the Hoover.

Anything else don't hesitate to contact.

Height adjustment won't work on Hoover windtunnel


In my experience, Hoover height adjustment are "stops" rather than being attached to an axel. Look for something that rould resemble a set of circular steps somewhere in the path the axel would take as it goes up and down. It is usually on the underside from the knob that sets the height. Each 'step' represents a height with the shortest step being the lowest setting from a certain perspective.

On some Hoovers, therte is a ratchet petal on the right side. The ones I have seen are similar in operation to the above.

Let me know if this helps you.
