Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

The problem has been getting worse. It works, then cuts off. Then works and cuts off. Making sure the canister is not full. Time b/w it working is getting longer and longer. Almost seems this time when I change the outlet it is plugged into it works. But then shuts off quicker than it was doing before. I'm getting very frustrated.

We had exactly the same problem with our Animal. After the motor was replaced under warranty a different engineer came out and diagnosed it as the cyclone chamber itself being clogged.(the bit with the purple cylinders on it). This is completely unserviceable and it too was replaced under warranty - along with a second motor! Not the answer you wanted I'm sure but you're wasting your time looking for a problem elsewhere. Ultimately the motor is pulling through a clogged chamber and you will burn it out! Hope this helps...

Why won't my Dyson DC23 turn on? I have checked the breaker and everything is in working order. It was turning on and off the last time I used it.


Hi Donna.

You've made a good start in making sure the outlet is working.
The manual can be seen here:
Dyson stowaway DC23 Helpline Manual The thing I pick up on in particular is your saying that the unit was turning on and off the last time you used it.

Based on a number of repair and troubleshooting forums, it sounds like the unit was overheating, or close to overheating before. There is a thermal-cut-out switch to keep the unit from overheating to the point of damage, or, worse, starting a fire. If the interlock has kicked in, it can take 30 minutes to an hour for the unit to cool enough to reset the switch.

Common things are common, and rare things are rare. With that in mind, the most likely causes of overheating are:
  1. Blockage somewhere in the vacuum line.
  2. The brush head being jammed / trying to turn when something is impeding it.
  3. Clogged filters.
First rule - unplug the vacuum when working on it. After that,
  1. Remove the various bits of tubing, u-bends, and such, and make sure that they are clear - no paper wads, hair clumps, or such. For long stretches of the tubing, a long bent coat hanger (marshmallow roaster configuration) can be used to gently probe the long stretches.
  2. Try to rotate the brush - remove any obvious yarn, hair, string, rubber bands, etc, built up on the brush.
  3. Wash the filters. They are meant to be washed every few months. If they haven't been, they may be so clogged that the motor isn't drawing in enough air to cool itself.
That should give you a good start. If none of this works, there are toll free numbers to talk to Dyson support in the manual.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays!

Bissell Bagless Upright Vacuum not working


If your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner is not cleaning like it did when it was new, then you need to provide a bit of maintenance or service. I will tell you how you can do this maintenance to your Bissell vacuum.

First, make sure that your floor vacuum is unplugged. Then you can work safely on your Bissell bagless vacuum.

If your Bissell upright vacuum is losing suction, then the next thing to check is the canister. It is very easy to simply forget to dump the canister.
The while you have the canister out, check the filter inside the canister to make sure that it is not plugged full of dirt. This filter can be difficult to access, but a little persistence will pay off. When you get the bottom of the cup open and remove the filter, use a bit of soapy water to wash out the filter. You can then reassemble the filter into the bottom of the canister.

On the left side of the vacuum there is also a HEPA filter Bissell has there to help filter the air even more. Remove that, clean it also and replace it.

The hose is the next thing to check. You can completely detach the hose from the vacuum. Check the hole at the bottom where the hose hooks up to make sure the hole is not plugged. Then stretch out the hose and run something like a coat hanger through it to make sure that there are no obstructions inside the hose. You should be able to hold the hose up to a light and see right through it.

The last thing to check is your Bissell vacuum belt. If the belt is too loose it will slip and not spin the brush properly. Bissell belts can be purchased online easily, or in many grocery stores. If your Bissell upright cleaner has a slipping belt, it may also be because of strings, carpet pieces, etc… getting wrapped around the brush. Remove the vacuum brush and cut off everything that is wrapped around it. Always be careful of the vacuum belt after you have just used your vacuum. The belt will be very hot just after use.

These steps will help you to get your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner working like new again.

Using hoover, stopped working. Bag very full so changed. Hoover seems very hot. Will not work. Checked fuse


Give the vacuum time to coold\ down, then try again. If it still doesn't work, take it to a repair shop to be checked.
When a vacuum is used for long after the bag is full, the motor can overheat to the extent that the motor burns out. This is one of the benefits of having a vacuum that shuts off when the bag is full.
You should also check the hose for clogs. Disconnect at both ends and drop a coin in one end. If it fails to fall through, there's a clog that needs removed. This is likely to happen at the canister end when the bag gets too full.

The red light on my electrolux vacuum comes on and cuts power.


If the bag full light keeps coming on, you can first try adjusting the dial on top of the vacuum cleaner. If that does not work, then you need to change the control valve. This is an internal component of the canister and is directly below the dial. You will need to follow the instructions on a previous post to open the Electrolux plastic canister vacuum, and remove the bage cage. Once you remove the bage cage you can change the control valve, and this will solve your problem with the bag full indicator.

HEPA Filter has melted on our Dyson DC05 turbo filter? I'm trying to investigate the cause any suggestions as to how to get into the unit?


throw it away, any time a plastic vacuum gets melted or warped in any way they usually never work the same again, and tend to get worse over time.

This sounds like the valve assembly (full bag control) is faulty or one ov the tubes is clogged. You will have to take it to the shop.

sounds like you have the plastic bodied canister. the controll valve inside is bad. I usually just disconnect those to avoid future problems. you may want to take the vacuum to a repair shop though becuase they are a pain to get apart and get back in one piece.

After I run my vacuum for a couple of minutes it shuts off. If I unplug the vacuum and plug it into a different outlet most of the time it will start working again.


I would say check inside the plug and make sure the connections are tight. If the vacume runs fine on the other socket outlet then it will bw a faulty socket which cuts your hoover out. Can buy a new socket frount from diy stores for about 2-3 pounds. If the hoover also cuts out on the other sochet it will be a temperature cut out device on your hoover. If this is the case empty the bag and give it a good clean and get rid of any accumalation of dust/dirt
