The Cyclone Cylinder needs to be cleaned with hot water poured over the cyclinder and into the cylinder until the water is clear. Afterwards, shake the cylinder several times to get the excess water out. Then let the cylinder dry out for at least two days along with the filter. When my DC17 began to smell like a dirty dog, I discovered that the cylinder had a ton of hair inside it. It took quite awhile to get all of it out. Be patient. Now I know to clean my Dyson every month; otherwise, it will emit a doggy odor.

Dyson dc17 animal stopped sucking. brush still


Make sure the flexible hose that connects the beater brush housing up to the connection up by the dust bin is still connected. It could also have a hole in it so check for that as well.

8 holes in root cyclone are clogged


There is no real solution other than to call Dyson provided still under warranty.

IMHO, DC17 Animal has a flawed design with the sealed canister (at least as purchased in December 2006 purpotedly has been corrected at this time).

The rubber gasket (where you close the bin at the bottom) is so delicate, that even the routine maintenance of emptying the bin can dislodge it (or even crimp it) so that debris (carpet lint, pet hair, etc) enters the cyclone itself eventually clogging it.

After going throught their recommended solution on their web site without fixing the problem, it was a typical customer service experience on calling. But with persistence in explaining their faulty design to them (particularly with regard to the fact that it's caused by routine maintenance), they'll break down and send you a new cylone unit at no charge - from there on out ensure that the thing is sealed after emptying or performing normal maintenance.

Although the original question is somewhat dated, hopefully this will save others some aggravation in dealing with the problem.

A grumpy old guy who simply insists that companies put service/care back into the customer service/care hotlines....
