My Dyson works perfectly well with the base plate. As soon as i use the hose part it tends to loose all power and i cant even stretch the hose properlu


The hose is blocked, so you have very little suction at the end. The vacuum in the hose is pulling the hose shorter. With the vacuum turned off, push a broom handle through the hose to dislodge the blockage.

HOW DO I TAKE APART MY DYSON


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm not sure from your question which aspect of your Dyson DC40 you want to take apart. However, please be aware that dismantling your machine any further than is shown in the User guide can void your Dyson guarantee, so we strongly advise against this.

If you're having difficulty with your DC40, you should be able to resolve this quickly and easily following the simple troubleshooting checks shown in our Support pages. Just select the menu option that's relevant to your issue: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor

If you would like some further help or advice from our experts, you're welcome to give the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dc 42 not sucking


Dyson Upright Animal Model DC 42 lost power head rotation. Took apart floor plate and also switch assembly. The switch assembly has two springs of which one fell out before we could determine how to put together. Does any one have an image of the spring locations in the switch assembly?

Model DC40, the wand doesn't have any suction when I want to use on stairs, etc.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
If your DC40 doesn't seem to have suction through the wand but picks up as normal on flooring, it's likely there's a blockage in the wand or hose. To locate and remove any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/check-the-wand-and-hosedc40


It's also worth giving both filters a wash as shown in the video below - in normal use this should be done at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent and at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance please call our freephone Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

When i set the floor setting to carpet, it makes a nasty rattling noise. doesn't do it on bare floor setting


Hi,

There is one major difference between the hard floor setting and the carpet setting - the brushbar doesn't spin on the hard floor setting. Hopefully this is a simple problem - the rattling noise suggests there may be something trapped behind the brush rollers. You can inspect this by removing the sole plate from the vacuum. Doing this may allow any trapped objects to fall out without need for any further inspection:

To remove the sole plate:

1. Lie the dyson on it's side so you can access the underside or sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees.
2. Using a coin or a large flat-bladed screwdriver undo the two yellow fasteners on either side of the "sole plate" which covers the brush rollers.
3. Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and remove it

Any loose debris can now be easily removed, While the sole plate is removed, it is a good opportunity to inspect the brushes and remove anything else that may be stuck to it.

Replacing the sole plate is the exact reverse of the removal process. Before replacing the sole plate, ensure that the brush bar is correctly and fully inserted.

There are other possible reason for the rattling noise, but your description leads me to believe that this should cure the fault. Inspect the brushbar first and then post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Belt


Hi.

If its not all floors machine just turn the three plastic screws under the machine to unlock .
lift off sole plate remove brush roller fit new belt over brush roller then stretch belt over motor drive shaft.
Replace sole plate turn 3 screws to lock position & thats it.

If your machine has a clutch unit & is all floors type this is more harder to do & will need a lot of explaining so try this site for Dyson Service Manuals.
