I have the dc47 and the suction keeps flipping on and off. Why??

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

You may need to check for blockages of your wand and hose. Remove the wand and hose from your cleaner when checking for blockages and any damages. Make sure to turn off and unplug your vacuum from the power before doing this. Please refer to this troubleshooting guide for more information on how how to fix the issue:

Dyson dc 47 head won't turn on

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If the brush bar in your DC47's carbon fibre turbine head isn't rotating it's worth checking it's set correctly. You can turn off the brush bar manually to clean delicate rugs, and it's possible the brush control may have been accidentally activated:

It's also a good idea to check that the brush bar is free of any threads or hair, and that there are no obstructions in the cleaner head which could be jamming it:

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like some further advice from our experts when you've given this a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Carpet brush does not work on dc26

With this model, the most likely cause is that the brush has become clogged and won't spin freely. Unplug the unit and test spinning the brush bar by hand. If you really can't get spin, follow instructions like these (
Dyson DC26 DC35 DC36 DC38 DC44 DC45 DC47 Clearing the brush bar Official... that are straight from Dyson). Make sure you get the very ends fiber-free. It should spin better now.

Good Luck!

Dyson dc 47

Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

There are 3 potential reasons as to why your Dyson DC47 roller brush is not working:

1) The brush bar may be blocked by debris that was picked up by the vacuum. To remove the blockage, switch your vacuum 'OFF' and unplug before proceeding. Then, lay the vacuum down and try to remove anything that is lodged in the roller brush. If you still cannot clear the obstruction, you may need to remove the base plate to gain better access to the bar.

2) The roller brush may be set in a position that is too low for the type of surface that you are working on. Vacuums have different recommended heights when working on carpets and hardwoods. Try switching the brush "on" or "off" based on what type of surface you are working on.

3) If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning the belt might be broken, stretched out too much, or might have fallen off. Check the belt and replace if needed.

I can't return my electric line. How can i fix it? I push the bottom to return my line, but no any action.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC47's cord reel button needs to be pressed down firmly to retract the cord - you should feel a click from the button when it's pressed down far enough. Keep hold of the plug as you press the button down, and allow the cord to feed back into the machine.

If you're sure you've pressed the button down as far as it will go, and have not been able to get the cord to retract, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Bissell 5770 vacuum power won't stay on. The power will only stay on if you hold down the button the whole time.

I just had this happen to me. I took the top part of the vacuum off, unscrewed all of the screws from the top piece and opened it just enough to pop off the plastic red power button. Then I pressed the switch mechanism up and down a few times to reset it and put it back together. Turns out it didn't actually go bad.

Power switch won't stay on. If I hold it down the power stays on. As soon as I let up, it stops.

Most likely the ratchet mechanism on the switch is faulty.

Switches are available if you search on eBay for a few pounds, and if you've reasonable DIY skills and tools, it's fairly easy to do.

Have a look at which has some great info.

Power button won't stay on. If I hold it down, it sucks fine, but it won't stay pushed down.

Take it to a local vacuum repair shop and have them replace the power switch, once you do that your machine should be back to normal
