Why is my Dyson DC40 blowing and not sucking


actually if it is moving air as your question suggests, nothing is wrong with the unit, if it is blowing then it is in fact sucking...I feel the problem may be user error.

Why is it blowing and not sucking


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most of the time the reason why vacuum is not picking up is due to loss of suction. You may need to check for blockages of your wand and hose. Remove the wand and hose from your cleaner when checking for blockages and any damages. Make sure to turn off and unplug your vacuum from the power before doing this. Please refer to this troubleshooting guide for more information on how you can remove blockages:

MY DYSON DC40 VACUUM DRUM WILL NOT SPIN.. NOT GETTING FULL POWER


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Please be assured it's normal for the dust and debris inside your DC40's clear bin not to spin. In fact in the bin base you'll notice 4 ribs, known as 'baffles'. These are engineered to catch the debris and force it to settle at the bottom of the bin. This helps to keep the debris out of the airflow, which can then pass through the mesh shroud and into the cluster of smaller cyclones where the finest dust particles are captured.

However, if your DC40 doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be, this is likely to be easy to resolve. Our online Support guide will walk you through each troubleshooting step: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well

If you haven't washed your DC40's filters recently, this should also be done. DC40 has 2 filters engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum, and these should be washed at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent, and allow both filters to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing them.


This should help restore full performance to your DC40. However, our experts are on hand to help if you have any further questions, and you can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson dc40 motor not working, only brush turns


Hi Elsa, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC40 has a thermal cutout which will shut off the machine if it begins to overheat. This can often be due to a blockage, or because the filters need a wash.

Your machine should reset itself automatically after it's had a few hours to call down. However, to prevent any damage to your machine we'd recommend using our online Support guide to check for any blockages you may have missed: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/both-checks-checking-wand-and-hose-step-1

In normal use we recommend washing both filters at least once a month, using cold water without detergent as shown in the video attached. Allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them - it can help to place them by a radiator, or inside an airing cupboard.

If you'd like some further help after you've given this a try, you're welcome to contact our experts directly. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Not sucking strongly enough


Hi Neil, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC40 isn't picking up as well as it should be, it's likely there will be a blockage that you may have missed. The most effective way to check for this is to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor-complete/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/both-checks-checking-wand-and-hose-step-1

We'd also recommend washing both filters, which should be done at least once a month in normal use - the video attached should help. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for them to dry before replacing them.

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

Model DC40, the wand doesn't have any suction when I want to use on stairs, etc.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
If your DC40 doesn't seem to have suction through the wand but picks up as normal on flooring, it's likely there's a blockage in the wand or hose. To locate and remove any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/check-the-wand-and-hosedc40


It's also worth giving both filters a wash as shown in the video below - in normal use this should be done at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent and at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance please call our freephone Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack
