Have you checked the the hoses are free of debris?
Is the setting for floor on when you are vacuuming the carpet.

Turn id on an see if it will **** up some pennies.
Use the hose for that.

Check for string hair, etc cought in the brush.
Use the small pick knife that should have came w/ the dyson to cut away and thing caught in the brush.

Hope this helps.

D25 ball motor screaming noise burning smell and smoke coming from ball. Extended warranty expired recently!


The motor has seized and burned up. Its going to need professional repair as those motors are electrically controlled and not normal 120V motors.

My dyson dc28 brush stopped turning after a pop and smoked. Smelled like burnt plastic. The attachment hose still has suction and is working fine. What happened?


Hiya.

When an object gets under the machine it can
cause the brushbar to suddenly jam. The belt between the motir
and the brushbar however is forced to keep turning
causing the rubber belt to burn an then break.

Dyson Animal Bagless Upright........ burning smell when in operation?


Hi Samantha,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC25 Animal. If it's making a burning smell in use, I'd encourage you not to use it again, and to give our UK customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298.

One of our advisors will be happy to help resolve this issue for you. If a replacement part or an engineer visit is required, we should be able to arrange this under the terms of our 5-year guarantee, as long as the machine has been used in accordance with the terms and conditions listed in the user guide.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Dyson will not switch on


Usual problem is the fuse in the plug. Check the fuse first. If this fails then your problem is either the Switch (Unlikley) or the Motor. Its unlikely the motor would break without warning though. If you have had any burning smells or funny noises recently then its the Motor.

If there are no Smells then im confident its only a case of changing the fuse. Quite common for the fuse to go.

Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming


Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.

The purple cylinder on my Dyson 14 Animal vacuum smells terrible


Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you reinsert it. If not, it will mildew, emitting a horrible smell. When you clean your cylinder, you must wait for at least three to four days to make sure that it is completely dry.
