Air not getting to hose


I'm not sure which model you have but this is good for Riccar upright vacuums. If the hose has good suction but is not picking up well check the suction tube that is down by the brush roll. The suction tube starts by the brush roll and goes to the back of the vacuum where you put the suction hose into. If it has a clog or restriction the vacuum will not pick up properly.

My vacuum isn't cleaning/suctioning very well. The hose attachment will work and pick up debris but the main part of the vacuum (where the brush is) doesn't pick up. The brush only spins but there...


Check to see if the brush is turning when you have the vac on and the handel down 'of course keep your hands from that area when doing this ,you might have to lean the vac ,to see the resaults.

Does not pick up lint on carpet


I have a four suggestions. First, check the wand and see if the suction vent is completely closed. If this little vent has the slightest opening, the suction is reduced. cSecond,if that's not the case, you might want to check the brush/roller area. Threads and fibers caught on the brushes can prevent the vacuum from picking up lint. Third, make sure there are no fibers in the wheel of the vacuum head. And fourth, make sure the bag is not full! I often forget to check and back and a full bag is one of the main reasons a vacuum will not pick up items. I hope this helps. If one of my suggestions solves your problem, please contact Fixya and rate my solution!

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush...


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested. Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40.

No suction from the bottom


Check for a clogged airway between the bottom shoe and the hose inlet. The shoe is the area around the brush when looking at the bottom of the floor unit.

Wont pick up


Mine was doing this soon after I bought it. I had to cut the strings, and hair off the brush...cleaned the filter (plastic one) and then it seemed to do better. I still have problems with it getting clogged in the tube once in a while...I usually take a broom stick and push it through...I also have a Kirby, I tell ya I am thinking of spending the money to have it fixed because these cheaper ones aren't very good.

Dyson DC07 Original won't pick up at base


Hi,

Lie machine on its side pull back handle as if vacuuming & switch on (KEEP YOUR FINGERS & ANY LOOSE CLOTHING CLEAR OF BRUSH ROLLER)

Brush should spin if it doesnt ensure clutch control knob on side of machine is in drive position if it isnt rotate knob by hand to drive brush should now spin.

If it doesnt & your machine has A clutch either clutch will need replacing or belts will need replacing.

Manuals are available to replace belts & remove the clutch from this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

Not picking up


Did you check down by the brush roll? If the hose has suction, then the problem has to be in the nozzle asm. The hose having suction tells you that the main part of the vacuum is working ok.
