Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Seals leaking Where the canister meets the machine, the seals are leaking, blowing whatever manages to get sucked up right back into the air. I can't see anywhere to buy new seals. What to do?

The cleaner sucks very poorly. The motor sounds fine, it blows well and there is no obstruction.

If it blows, then it should suck equally unless there is leakage on the intake (suck) side meaning something inside disconnected or cracked, letting air in from other directions. I do not know the vacuum you speak of; upright (which has a short hose often clogged by itself) or canister which might also have a leaky seal at the bag door.

Vacuum brushes are turning but not picking up dirt and is blowing a lot of air out of the top air filter thing

Did you check carefully for splits? After sucking something up that big, you may have split something, like in a fold of the hose. When it is in a position where the split is somewhat sealed, it works. Move it just a bit and the split separates and it won't work.

Kenmore w PowerMate just blowing...NOT sucking

Have you made sure the hose is completely clear of any and all obstructions? the power mate also? I have to make the assumption that you're checking the air coming from the rear exhaust port to know that it's still blowing. Take the hose out of the machine and check the suction at the machine itself. If it's good there and not at the end of the hose, that's your problem.

Our Rainbow SE PN2 is blowing instead of sucking, is there some kind of airflow adjustment that we need to do?

Kellie, I've had 2 Rainbows and the only way I know that they can blow is if you have your hose attached to the outflow(exhaust) for such things as blowing up air beds water toys, etc. If your hose is on the front of the machine and it is still blowing air....I got nothin'! That seems very odd to me, and I've never been told even when I sold the machines that there was any type of airflow adjustment for them, especially on these older models.

How to install the back hepa filter on canister vacuum cleaner. We are not sure which direction the air flows and therefore which way the arrows should point. Should the arrows point into the vacuum...

The arrows in this case should point out of the machine. not into the machine. This is because you want the black rubber seal to seal on the machine and force the air through the filter.

Good luck.

Air escaping from beneath canister.

Yes, this is perfectly normal - all Dyson vacuum cleaners have a gap where the air leaves after it has passed through the vacuum cleaner itself - the air has to come out somewhere and it's always after it made its way past the two filters and the motor :)

I have a dyson that is picking up just fine when on vacuum mode, however when I try to use the suction tube there is no suction at all. It is not blocked and the canister is empty. Help!

Hi, I have an upright DC03, brilliant machine. Mine wouldn't **** and had the following symptoms;
- it sucked ok from the top hole where the canister joins the unit - with the canister the dust didn't spin aroun inside the canister like it normally does and there was no **** at the hose end or brush end. - with the top of the canister attached (the cyclone) but not the bottom it sucked through the cyclone - the small valve on top of the cyclone unit was sucking heaps
this indicated to me the machine was sucking through the cyclone unit but when the canister was put on it was blocked - hence the tremendous sucking through the valve on the top of the cyclone. As far as I could see the cyclone wasn't blocked so I poked some wire down the tube inside the machine that runs from the bottom of the unit (where the hose sits) up to the bottom hole where the canister joins. 
The DC03 has 2 holes where the canister attaches, it seems like it sucks air through the top hole, through the cyclone and through the lower hole sucks the dust up this inner tube into the canister. Check that tube, shine a torch from the top hole and you should be able to see the light at the bottom. Make sure you clear it completely. 
Mine was very very blocked. I kept poking and removing dust until I could see light at through the tube. Works fine now.
Hopefully this helps someone as it took me awhile to work it out. 
Good luck

Loud rainbow and water leaking

If pieces are missing or broken I would try and replace the piece. You can usually get these items cheap on Ebay.
