Hi If the Dyson is throwing out dirt at the back, it could be three possibilities:
1) The main floor head suction channel is blocked. Check the sole plate where the beater bar is, or if you have a cylinder/pull along model check the floor heads and main extension pipes.
2) Check all the inspection tubes especially the bottom part where the main handle hose is. Also check the filters are clean as well as the Cyclone shroud honeycombs are completely unclogged. Use of the upholstery brush is ideal for dust removal on the cyclones.
3) Check the main inspection areas on the Dyson as sometimes a back log of clogged dirt can get stuck. Also check the dust channel points when then bin is taken out.
Hope all this helps!

Roller that picks up dirt does not move or suck


The roller may be clogged with debris or the drive belt (if there is one) may have broken. The lack of suction could be due to a clogged intake.

Brand new dyson DC40 has no suction at bottom


Hi Marin, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC40 is a powerful mid-size Dyson upright vacuums, and we wouldn't expect you to have any concerns about performance on hard flooring or carpet. As long as the machine is used and maintained as described in the User guide we would not anticipate a change in performance, and we're on hand to help if Dyson owners need assistance.

It's important to note that for effective pickup, the cleaner head needs to form a close seal with the floor surface. Simply placing a hand under the cleaner head does not give an accurate idea of suction as you're not creating a seal, as you would be when you place your hand right across the end of the wand or hose. If you turn on and recline the vacuum, turn off the brush bar then lower the cleaner head onto something like a sheet of newspaper, you should see the newspaper held tightly against the soleplate by the vacuum's powerful suction.

We're keen to discuss this with you, and to help ensure your DC40 is working as well as it should be. Please email your full contact details to my colleagues at askdysonUS@dyson.com, and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible to provide further assistance.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

No suction after assembly


Sounds like you have a tube misaligned. Take the tubes that lead to the filter off and put back on. Most likely the solution

My Dyson DC40 Animal sounds like it's running on half power. I've only had it one day and it seemed great considering it was sucking up an incredible amount of half/dirt. I took the canister to empty it,...


I would recommend you check the gaskets and make sure they are all connected properly so the vacuum doesn't lose suction. Also, check the filters. If they get too dirty the vacuum will lose suction.

You could check out Dyson's site: dyson.com/support.aspx

Hope that helps.

Dyson DC25 is barely picking up, but what it is picking up is not going into the cannister,


Your problem is posted in the wrong category, so probably no-one reading here (Telescopes and Binoculars etc) will have the solution.

Handle vacuum no suction


Hi there,
I have made a video of the two most likely causes for lack of suction in the handle of your dyson DC07. Watch the video and see if it helps. The other thing to check is your washable filter, this can cause a big resuction in suction if dirty. If this is helpful take a moment to leave a testimonial or a thumbs up please.
Hope your back to full suction soon. :)

My Dyson Animal 14 is not producing enough suction to pick up dirt. What should I do?


Check for an obstruction. There are several cleanout ports built in to make this easier.

Noisey DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum; lack of suction...


Hi there it's SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. It is very likely you have a problem in the radix assembly or the filter is actually worn out. Basically to test either simply remove one then turn it on to test. If it runs better with out the filter (washable is most likely culprit) simply purchase a new one. If it is the radix assembly that is the problem it is possible to clean inside the little tubes by taking off the top and literally clearing dirt and fluff out with the help of a coat hanger. Alternatively a new one can be purchased. If you are in Australia or New Zealand I can help you with either part. Just put in a request via the email link n our website. Hope this helps regards Alec
