Question about Dyson Vacuums

1 Answer

Can't get at the belt, on my DC41, to change it. How do you open the housing?

I started taking it apart, but it didn't budge. I didn't want to go too far. There must be an easier way?

I have a DC41. The power head wont turn and is making a squealing noise.


Sounds like your power head is seized or almost seized. Possibly real dirty. take apart and lubricate ends and replace the belt I feel is slipping Hence the squealing.. Clean all parts thoroughly.

Dyson DC41 has a blue/purple canister inside the clear canister that has a screen in the middle and feed air into the 12 chambers. How do I get it off of the machine to clean it?


If it's the first time you've tried to take the inner cannister/filter out or you've had the vaccuum cleaner a while they can be quite stiff but it will come off.
Firstly, check where the cannister meets the inside of the outer body of the cleaner for a small plastic clip. It's about 2cm -3cm in size and attached to the main housing with a small plastic rivet so as to pivot or swivel. It may also have a slightly raised edge allowing you to push & swivel it about 90 degrees so it no longer covers the lip of the inner cannister. Now firmly hold the inner part and turn it anti-clockwise. It doesn't move far, a couple of inches at most but you should hear it click as the lugs turn to where their are gaps in the housing to allow the two pieces to come apart.
If it's the model I'm thinking of which was our last model, (I'm going on it being purple and the fact you mentioned the inner cyclone chambers) then it should come apart. I would also make a small line with a marker pen to help line them up for putting back together. They look as if the lugs slot back in anywhere but they only go one way and a line will help as a guide. Hope this helps.

How do replace belt on dc41


Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt.

Dyson animal loss of suction only in base makes a popping sound and feel very warm


Hi Chris,

It's normal for your machine to become warm in use - like most Dyson vacuums, DC41 Animal will shut itself down for protection if it starts to overheat.

However, the popping sound and change in performance you've described suggest that something is blocking the machine. This is simple to resolve following our online troubleshooting checks: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc41/dc41-irspu/diagnosis-root-menu/performance-flo-area-check-dc41/flo-brushbarvid-dc41/redirect-to-performance-flo-base-dc41-checking-the-internal-hose/performance-flo-base-dc41-checking-the-internal-hose

It's also a good idea to give the filters a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every three months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

If you'd like further advice after you've given this a try, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Sebo felix belt is broken,taken screws from bottom of vacum but will not come apart


There are actually two belts on your Sebo, one that drives the brush, and the second that attaches to the pulley on one end, and the motor shaft on the other. I'm assuming that the belt you need to replace is probably the brush belt, or the belt that attaches to the brush gear on side, and the pulley on the other.

Here's what you'll need to do:

Step 1. Remove the vacuum bag housing so that you are only working with the power nozzle or the bottom portion of your Sebo, this will make it much easier to work with. Turn the vacuum upside down, and remove only the 5 screws that I have circled in red:


9b05567.jpg

Step 2. After removing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner, separate the top housing from the lower agitator housing, sometimes it may take putting a flat head screw driver in between the white and grey colored housing and prying them apart.

Step 3. You now have full access to the belts on your machine. It's most likely the belt that wraps around the brush gear rather then the belt that's attached to the motor that's gone bad. I have never replaced the motor belt in 8 years of servicing Sebo vacuums. The easiest way to replace this belt is to loosen the pulley system that the belt wrap around. Unscrew the two screws that hold this pulley in place, and remove the brush drive belt from the pulley, and now you can unwrap it from the brush gear as well now with the extra slack in it. Now, if you've been using your Sebo in your home rather then using it commercially in a business, Sebo actually offers a lifetime belt warranty on their vacuum cleaners. The belt is supposed to last as long as the vacuum, and Sebo will actually cover this repair, both parts and labor as long as the machine is being used in a residential home environment..

Broken belt dyson Dc41


Belt was broken, so I had to go inside the motor assembly -- torx screws all the way. The problem is finding a replacement belt without buying a whole new power drive.

M084600 Dynamite Bagless Upright Vacuum: loss of suction...


A few weeks ago I ran into the same problem, virtually no suction. First I replaced the bad belt (make sure you fit it right or it'll destroy the belt, luckily I bought 2!) and while the vacuum sounded more "alive" it didn't seem to pick up anything any better. The final solution was taking apart the entire intake port section down to the motor and getting the collection tube. It was filled with junk all the way up. I spent over an hour clearing out gunk and animal fur throughout the tubing. Putting it back together was a cinche because the entire vacuum uses one screw type universally. The whole process was pretty intuitive and its clear it's meant to be taken apart for just this purpose.
