Question about Dyson DC35 Handheld Vacuum

1 Answer

Motor just makes 4 or 5 small clicking noises when you pull the trigger, then stops. The little lights illumintae around the "max" button as well. However, the motor does not engage in the slightest. There is no blockage at all. I have owned the vac for 10 months and know the sounds of blockage and clear them immediately. I just used it in the morning, plugged it back in and it has not worked since. Any ideas?

SOURCE: suction loss on dyson animal

Hi.

Keep the axe on hold try this first.


Ok first thing to do is remove & clean the 2 piece premotor filter or purchase new.

Now remove soleplate from bottom of machine to do this rotate the 3 plastic screws to unlock position. Lift sole plate off now remove any blockagers or fluff that may be built up over the brush roller.
Remove hair from brush roll using scissors.

Check short clear hose for blockages & any damage rips or tares if it is damaged purchase new hose.

Now look at belts & rotate brush roller it should turn relatively easy if it is difficult to turn by hand remove the brush roller & pull off the end caps the axle will come out with one of the caps.
Check the roller bearings clean away dust build up replace end caps & axle spin roller holding on to end cap if freely to spin refit back on to machine.

If its stiff to rotate you will need new roller.

Now pull off the 2 inspection ports check them for bits of paper etc especialy the (U) shaped port at bottom rear of machine this can contain pens pencills stones all sorts of items that hinder the suction.

Now check the long flexi hose & metal wand for any obstructions.

If after all this machine is still not working correctly go to this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/

On this site you will find Dyson service manuals covering poor suction, clutch,motor, etc.

SOURCE: Loud noise

To start with, a vacuum belt is designed to be the weak link so that if the brushroll is stopped momentarily, the motor won't "burn up" or be permanently damaged.

If, on your Dyson, your drive belt is a cogged-tooth [or "Gilmore"] belt, I have seen instances of the brushroll becoming momentarily stopped, and the motor will then chew up a few teeth on the belt.

Running the vacuum anytime after this will/may produce a grinding noise.

If you examine your belt and see teeth missing, replace the belt (and they should be under $20 for sure) and that should repair such an issue.

    I have a dyson V6 cordless vacuum. When i pull trigger to start vacuuming, it revs up and stops, revs and stops. Is there a fix for this?


    Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

    There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

    I can't the the max mode to turn off. How do I fix this?


    Hi Kayla, it's Jack at Dyson.

    To switch between Max mode and regular mode, first hold down the red on/off trigger, so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the Max button on the rear of the machine. The machine is designed in this way to make Max button can't be activated accidentally. When running in Max mode, the button will light up.

    How do I access the servo motor?


    I have the same/similar problem. I disassembled the vacuum and discovered that it was not actually the servo motor itself. The problem on mine was little a little sensor.

    The motor that raises and lower the height adjustment obviously need to stop when it reaches the highest setting (or the lowest setting) so that it doesn't over-adjust itself outside of the normal range (example an elevator in a building must stop trying to go down when it reaches the lowest floor, and must stop trying to go up when it reaches the highest floor.) In the vacuum there is a little slider and a pair of sensors that 'tells' the vacuum when it hits the bottom or top height. The sensor in mine had gotten mashed up and was not working anymore. Unfortunately the position it was in when it got mashed was all the way up, and worse, because it had been triggered to tell the vacuum that it had reached its highest point, it disable the adjustment motor from making further adjustments.

    So I bought a new sensor part ($15) (US) but since Electrolux didn't actually stock them, it took almost three months to arrive. Unfortunately for me, I have since forgotten where all the little pieces and parts came from. I am trying to find a repair manual to help me reassemble it properly, and I'll remain cautiously optimistic about this.

    Hope this helps you with some insight in your problems possible diagnosis and resolution.

    I need instructions on how to change the belt on my Hoover Model U4264-930 vaccum.


    Tool Needed, flat head screwdriver (larger one works a little better). Serious Safety Precaution: Make sure unit is unplugged. Preliminary: Check: that nothing is caught like threads etc, preventing roller brush from turning. I've had this model vacuum 10 years and have pulled threads out countless times. However it still has the original belt on it. To change belt: 1.) There is a plastic plate underneath roller, towards front.. Pry the 3 tabs at front, the plate hinges downward slightly (to clear the front tabs). Next, there are 2 little clips at bottom of plate. Insert screw driver at each of these clips to fully release the plate the rest of the way. (Or it may even come off without having to pry back on these. The plastic clips need pushed towards front, to clear the ridge that catches towards the back). Pry one, then the other, clip forward, while gently pulling the plate the rest of the way out. (Gentle prying will assure it will snap back together OK, so you still get a good seal.) You now should see the whole roller brush. 2.) Remove the shell/motor cover: To do this, a.) pull off the rug height adjuster lever, and take not where you put it so you won't loose it. b.) push foot release down and keep vacuum bag in the vacuuming/hinged/operating position (not the upright/locked position), and position cleaner on it's side, or upside down. c. Pry around the bottom edge, starting at right corner, then go around, prying in about 4 different places. Shell/motor cover will now easily pull off (upward and out towards front), exposing motor shaft and light bulb. 3.) remove belt from motor shaft. 4. slide roller and old belt out the bottom. 5.) remove old and place new belt on roller 6.) slide roller back into place. 7.) wrap other end of belt on motor shaft. 8.) shell cover, rug height adjuster knob, and bottom plate snap back into place. check that roller turns without much effort. 9.) It now should be ready to plug in and vacuum.

    My little green machine won't dispurse the water. what could be wrong?


    You can disassemble the unit and check to see if the pump motor has seized.

    the motor has a black, red and green wire attached, is encased in a plastic housing, and is right next to the vacuum assembly. Don't cut the line attached to the plastic housing, you don't need to and it can be a pain to reattach later. just slide the whole white housing up towards the black vacuum assembly, and undo the wire leads attached to the motor, they just pull off (make sure it's not plugged in) making sure to note which wire attaches to which lead... i marked each lead with a colored marker to be sure.

    Use a pair of pliers to turn the drive shaft if it has seized, and be sure not to lose the small rubber o-ring that sits around the shaft. Lubricate at the base where the drive shaft meets the motor with just a drop of 3-in-1 electric motor oil and then reassemble the housing, attach the leads, seat the motor back into the seating (make sure the bottom nozzle goes into the green water feed coupler!) and reassemble the case.

    worked well for me, if it still doesn't work you could buy a new pump and install it. they go for around $10 on ebay and amazon.com

    My DC25 Animal is making a howling, whistling noise. Primarily when turning off (winding down to shut off)


    if it started after you cleaned the filters, it is because when you smack the filter that is in the ball like they tell you to, it pushes the gasket in so air can sneak past it. take it back out and pull the rubber gasket away from the filter so there is about 1/16-1/8" away all the way around, then put it back in. it will seal it and stop.
