My vacuum is making noise and has no suction through the accessory bar.Checked the hose and inside of machine for blockages and still have no suction. Do you have any ideas of what to do next? Thanks.

Hi Margaret, it's Jack at Dyson.

Although I understand you've already checked your DC41 Animal for blockages, it does sound as if there is an obstruction somewhere inside the hose, wand or changeover valve of your machine. This is quick and easy to check for, and our video guides below will walk you through each step:

I'm confident this will help, but you're welcome to contact the Dyson Customer Helpline directly if you'd like further assistance after giving this a try. If a repair or a replacement part is needed, our experts will be able to confirm whether this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

The user manual for the Dyson is only 9 pages. I cannot access one for the D66 for free. From the ad above, the manual for the DC65 must be similar. There is also a uTube around which addresses unclogging hoses for dysons. The first link above hopefully shows you about the accessories, anyway.

How to replace lower cable winder ?

Hi Mani, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41's lower cable winder is attached to the hose assembly, and if the cable winder has broken you would need a replacement hose assembly. It's likely your DC41 would still be within our 5-year guarantee period, so it would be worth contacting us directly so we can order this for you.

When you have a moment, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US) to speak with our experts.

The hose suction on my Dyson Animal (DC41) is fine, but will not disengage when you put the hose back and want to use the floor sweeper.

Hi Stacy, it's Jack at Dyson.

This issue you've described with your DC41 sounds unusual, as the changeover valve will divert suction to the cleaner head automatically when you recline the machine into the vacuuming position. If it's not doing this, it's possible you have a blockage somewhere in the cleaner head, internal hose or changeover valve.

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

Dyson animal loss of suction only in base makes a popping sound and feel very warm

Hi Chris,

It's normal for your machine to become warm in use - like most Dyson vacuums, DC41 Animal will shut itself down for protection if it starts to overheat.

However, the popping sound and change in performance you've described suggest that something is blocking the machine. This is simple to resolve following our online troubleshooting checks:

It's also a good idea to give the filters a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every three months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

If you'd like further advice after you've given this a try, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Our experts are on hand to help, and will be happy to walk you through some further checks - we should be able to resolve the issue right over the phone.

My Dyson 41 has just started only sucking through the tube

We've had our DC41 for 4 months now and suddenly noticed no suction at the base as well. Base motor works fine.Thought I'd take one last look before sending in for repair. At the base of the attachment hose near the motor is a small red tab. I depressed it and pulled the entire hose off the motor. Sure enough inside was a eyeliner pencil our daughter had unknowingly vacuumed up. I couldn't see it just peering the length of the hose. Even with a flashlight. You don't see mention of the small red tab but it allows you to see close up rather than peering down the hose if something is lodged near the motor. Apparently this pencil prevented the internal hardware to switch from wand to base suction when the handle is reclined in floor vacuum mode. These vacuums have strong suction and they will pull up the oddest things! Hope this helps!!
