No suction in upright vacuum.


it could be the filter or on this unit, one of the other 2 filters. The most common overlooked filter on this unit is the filter in the pull out tray under the bagless container. I would suspect that is the culprit cutting off your suction. Pull it out and wash the filter, wash the other 2 filters in your unit as well. Warm water and soap, little bit of bleach to kill the smell and LET THE FILTERS DRY BEFORE PUTTING THEM BACK INTO THE UNIT. I cannot stress that part enough.

Good luck!!

I have changed the hepa filter & made sure the washable filter is clean. I checked the brush & it's working fine. The indicator is still red very little green. Not suctioning good at all. What...


check the suction hose where it bends down to the floor unit,, lots of times dirt,hair and stuff collects there when the filter was plugged up. remove the floor plate ( like you were going to change the belt ) and use a wire coat hanger to run up the suction hose and back out and clean out any debris, also check the entire hose for blockage ( top to bottom ). if this is all clear and you still have little suction - then the problem could be the vacume motor itself and you will need to take the unit into the repair shop and have the motor rebuilt or replaced.

No suction


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The problem is going to be the filter. THis kind of vacuum basically replaces the bag with a simple filter and the vacuum cleaner simply pulls all the dirt on to the filter so as soon as you start vacuuming you lose suction. The more expensive bagless vacuums spin the dirt through a chamber to minimise the material getting to the filter but unfortunately that wont help you. I could be wrong but i fix vacuums for a living and see this all the time. ITs a bit of a silly design in my opinion. You can test my theory by removing the filter and really thoroughly cleaning the little cracks with a brush or better still an air compressor and the suction will improve...untill you vacuum dirt that is.
Hope this helps, if you want more info just drop me an email.
Happy vacuuming :)

Very little suction in hose no tears in hose


Hi there, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . I have fixed hundreds of Dyson DC07 vacuum cleaners over the last few years and i would say there are 2 possible causes for the loss of suction.
1st is that the filter looks clean but is actually worn anyway. The way to tell is remove the washable filter from your vacuum cleaner. Take out the foam insert this seems to last longer that the other part. Hold up the plastic cage to the light and look at the white part (well it used to be white anyway) you should be able to see light through it. If you cant see through it you need to replace it. Here is a link to that filter for purchase . To verify this is the problem just run the vacuum without the filter in you should see an improvement - note do not actually **** up material the filter is there for a good reason.
2nd problem is that you have a blockage in your radix assembly. If you take off the whole dirt bin and feel the suction on the upright part where the chamber joins the vacuum (basically bypassing the radix) if there is good suction here you will either need to replace the cyclone top or dismantle and clean it. (it is very difficult to clean as it doesn't completely dissassemble)
Hope this helps - If you want more help send me a message
HAPPY VACUUMING ! :)

Very little suction? Someone give me an answer please.


You must have something obstructing the airflow. There is sometimes a small trap door under the vacuum where the brush is located. Open that door and see if there is something jammed in it. If you don't have the door, then there is an obstruction somewhere in the vacuum. You should also look in the hose.

Vacuum hose has little suction.


There is most likely a clog in the hose. If the hose has poor suction the foot probably has poor suction as well seeing that the hose is what gives the foot assy suction.

Whiny motor, less suction


Its not unheard of that the lifetime filtration filter may need replacing and dust can work itself into the main motor chamber even though Dyson claim their models have sealed motors. Whiny motors however can happen for a number of reasons such as:

  • Over-use
  • Motor bearings
  • Strain on the motor from another source i.e. the drive belt may need replacing or the caps on the brush roller at each end need to be checked.
Have a look at the drive belt / sole plate to see if there is any dirt clogging the system. Also check the inspection pipes on the Dyson and check that nothing is obstructing the air waves. Sometimes even a new filter (bottom of the bin) cures the problem and this can easily be checked by taking out the filter for a couple of seconds and using the Dyson to check if suction is indeed stronger.
