Re: DC 11 issue

This may be due to diminished suction. have you tried cleaning out the filters? Try rinsing the filters throughly with water and then letting it COMPLETELY dry out before reinserting. Also try cleaning around all the rubber gaskets on the dirt bin.

Vacuum relief valve

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC24 includes a suction relief valve. This helps protect the motor when too little airflow is passing through the vacuum. This could be due to a blockage, or because the two lifetime washable filters are overdue for wash.

To check for blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

In normal use we recommend washing both filters at least once a month, using cold water without detergent. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine:.

I'm confident that washing both filters, and removing any blockages from the airways, will resolve the issue. However if you'd like any guidance from our experts after you've given this a try, you're welcome to call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I understand you've checked for blockages and washed the filter, but there may be something you've overlooked. These checks will help you determine if there's a blockage or another issue that may be causing this:

Dyson extension handle

Hi Carol, it's Jack at Dyson.

The issue you've described sounds very unusual as DC24's wand handle assembly should be easy to replace after use. It's worth checking there are no blockages in the wand or hose that could be jamming the mechanism.

Our Support guide may help:

If you can't see anything it would be worth contacting our experts directly for some advice. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear...

It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.

I need to buy a vacuum cleaner - the flooring in our house is mainly Oregon pine with loose rugs. I suffer from back problems and find the cylinder vacuums cause a great deal of back strain. I have been told that an upright vacuum is not suitable for wooden floors - I would appreciate any advice, particularly if you knows of an upright vacuum cleaner that works well on wooden floors. Thank you

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Well, I can think of a couple of solutions for you and I hope they will help. #1. The first thing that came to mid was to stick with the canister vacuum with good suction but instead of dragging the canister vacuum around and having it irritate your back problems you can have a longer hose made in the length that would be comfortable for you and to use not a vinyl brush with black bristles, instead you can use a good horsehair brush of which is better for the wood floors and will not scratch the wood floors. #2. It does not have a lot of suction but id you buy an electric broom like Hoover or Eureka you can convert the plastic tool that comes with it from the factory and use and adaptor and install a good horsehair brush, it like an upright but the cord is much shorter, you may have to use an extension cord. #3. if you own your own home you can install to your existing home a central vac with a 30 or 35 foot house with wands and a horsehair brush and then you can go in any direction but then your hose is much longer. Or you can shorten your hose to 20 or 25 feet , but then you are adding more inlets to your existing home, it is up to you. A central vac straight suction is less than an est of $750.00 or less depending on the unit your purchase but a lot easier and all your got to do is empty the bag or dirt cup from out in the garage and the sound is also out in the garage or down the basement . A local vacuum cleaner dealer can assist you with any of the 3 choices that I suggested. I hope this will help you. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
