Question about Dirt Devil M086700 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

No blockage, but no suction and food disaappeared?

OK, I tried a solution I found on here yesterday and I still can't resolve my problem. I took the entire vaccuum apart, down to the motor, shown a flashlight through every tube and possible hole. There's NO clog or any kind of blockage that I can find. The base has suction, but the side units do not. Also, after vaccuuming up my son's cheerios, they disappeared!! Where the heck did they go? I tore it apart again and can't find them. they did not come back out when vaccuuming yesterday. What do I do? I'm trying to fix this for my husband who just wants to bring it somewhere to get fixed. HELP!! Thanks in advance.

Make sure the bagless canister is snug in place. This will affect the suction also.

Weak suction on dyson dc05. The suction is not as good as usual


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Try washing your pre filter and checking the machine through for a blockage. These are the most likely causes.

A full blockage procedure and filter washing instructions can be found at www.dyson.co.uk/support.

No water spraying, suction still working


I have a Bissell as well, and found that your issue sounds like there is a blockage in the hosing to the main cleaner part of your machine, The siphon action of the suction that your machine is obviously working in that you state that your accessories tubing is working. There is a split though in your unit. probably under the hood of the machine which splits the pressure between the accessories and the main unit. I highly suggest you look there to seek your blockage.
This unit works like a "straw" in a soda pop.. the unit makes a suction draw and that draw is directed to the main unit area and the accessory area, splitting from the main suction line..
Another suggestion though might be to be sure your accessory line is not "open" when you are trying to use your main unit.. you can test this by seeing it it squirts when you run your main unti as well.
Summary then is to check that there is no blockage after the "T" where the pressure seperates to the main squirter and the accessories.. This should be fairly obvious to see and a little cleaning should resolve this right up for you.
Hope that helps!

Vaccum cleaner not picking up (116.36933/Aspiradora)


Joan,

I had a similar problem with my upright and just resolved it today. Mine was also picking up with the beater bar, but not as good as it should and it had very little suction at the hose.

I did everything it said to do in my owners manual...
I looked into every entry to the dirt cup.
I checked for blockages into the bottom of the vacuum.
I cleaned the HEPA and regular filters and dirt cup - still no success.
I made sure the belt was working properly.

I finally sat and looked at how things should get into the clear dirt cup (bagless model).

I finally realized it had to be a blockage in the hose.

I completely detached the hose from the vacuum - this took some muscle.
Took the hose outside and used my high pressure nozzle on my garden hose to spray out the hose. It took a few seconds before a pretty large & stiff piece of paper (2"x2") and much more very dirty stuff finally blew out...
No wonder the vacuum had no suction!!!

The paper that was blocking the hose reminds me of a piece found under a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! YIKES, it was probably candy causing yet more problems besides the extra pounds!!!

Hope this helps - I'm not an expert, just a frustrated cleaning fanatic who hates it when mechanical things don't work right!

Good LUCK!

My DC05 Dyson suction has stopped...there are no blockages, the seals are good, there seems to be more suction coming from a yellow box which is situated at the top of the removable cannister. There is...


My Dyson had exactly the same problem. I found the problem was caused by a blockage in the hose. Take the hose out where it joins the cleaner (it will come out if you pull it downwards gently) and take the hose out of the handle by squeezing the yellow buttons on either side. I pushed a rubber alkathene pipe down and found a piece of plastic was blocking it even though at first I was sure it wasn't blocked.

Hose Collapses When I Try to Use Wand


Hi Both.

Ok you have A blockage, Remove flexi hose completly from rear of machine & completly remove wand & handle from the hose.

Now check flexi hose for obstruction if none present move on to the wand & hanndle look down through tha wand for any obstruction look very carefully where the plastic handle meets alloy tube there is A slight bend here often A coin gets stuck here & flips accross to block oppening when you try to use wand.

If you cant see anything coin etc put hose back on machine & switch on there should be good suction from the flexi hose,
Now with machine still switched on push alloy pipe back on if the hose suddenly pulls back & there is poor or no suction you definately have A coin stuck at the bend.

You will need A broom handle or other long solid pole to hit it out.
