Dyson animal vacuum 07 --5 years old no suction

I have cleaned filters (and replaced) Checked for blockages in the hoses. Cleaned the beater bar--It will not get the pet hair off the carpet--is there a repair for this or do I need to replace the vacuum? It has plently of power and the suction from the hose is good just won't pick up dirt from carpet.

The only way to fix the problem is to clean out the motor filter that's inside, the filter is around the motor and they don't do replacements for this part, as its not accessible by normal use, you need to remove all the case screws and disassemble the hole case, this site may help you https://manchestervacs.co.uk/DysonForum/index.php?topic=76.0

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.
Here is a video that you may find useful

SOURCE: My Dyson Animal 14 beater brush will not turn.

It MAY be a clutch issue. I had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal recently a posted a solution elsewhere on this site, but here's the summary. To reset the clutch on my model, recline the vacuum, turn it on it's side and slowly change the carpet/bare floor knob from one setting to the other about 6 times. This apparently reset the clutch and now it works fine. You may also wish to call DYSON. They're very helpful and walk you through troubleshooting before recommending servicing. Their number is 1-866-693-9766. They'll need your model and serial number (located on bottom of uinit).

SOURCE: Dyson 07 plug gets very hot after prolonged vacuuming

Electrical current passes through the electric cord and plug - it will get warm, that's normal. If the problem is worse where you smell an electrical burning smell, only an authorized dealer can fit a new power cord to your vacuum cleaner. Call the Dyson helpline, they will let you know who the closest repair dealer in your area is.

SOURCE: Replace dyson 07 animal brush roll assembley

The end caps of the brush assembly which contain the bearings are only a push fit onto the spindle (quite tight). Remove these and the brush bar will pass through the drive belt loop. To achieve this the belt has to be stretched slightly so care has to be taken not to over-stretch what might be a belt getting to the end of its life. When refitting the end caps do not forget to aline them properly so they fit into the sole plate recesses correctly.

I cannot see at the moment how to replace the drive belt on the DC 07 without significant dismantling (that will probably be my next job) I do not see the use of the Dyson tool you offered.

If it is not on the bare floor setting then you most likely have a belt issue it is not an easy fix I am sorry to say if your mechanically inclined I can tell you how to replace it.

I have a DC41 Animal. It has suction through the hose. When I try to vacuum it stops sucking through the hose but seems to have no suction in the base and the beater roller doesn't work.


Check for a clothes peg at the motor iintake port. They can get that far then jam at the curve so tight youll wonder how you missed it. It will drastically reduce suction yet not cause a clog , and you can't see it

Very little suction at beater brush.


Hey, this is Leland with Crucial Vacuum,

If the brush bar is not working properly there may be several reasons.

Firstly, the motor may be the problem. If you hear any noises while the machine is running, you should contact the original manufacturer for trouble shootingsolutions.

Secondly, your vacuum may be in need of new parts. By changing either the brushroll or belts, you should be able to increase the quality of the suction.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

An unusual noise like this can often be caused by something simple, like a part or a seal slightly out of position. I appreciate you've checked your DC14 thoroughly for issues, but we're usually able to diagnose the cause most effectively by listening to the machine over the phone.

When you have your DC14 easily to hand, I would encourage you to give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call to speak with our experts. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Beater bar will not turn on dc23.


Hi Jean, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC23's Turbine head doesn't seem to be working correctly. Often this can be caused by a blockage in the floor tool, wand or hose, or because the filter needs a wash. However, I note you have already checked for this.

We'd appreciate the opportunity to take you through some quick troubleshooting checks when you have your machine to hand. If we're not able to resolve the issue we can confirm if your machine is within our 5-year guarantee period, and whether a repair or replacement part is covered.

You can reach our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. Although I note you've already checked for blockages, it's a good idea to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide to make sure everything is correct with the machine:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL


Please also check that the filter has been washed as shown in the video below - in normal use, this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve the issue, but if you're still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com.

Kind regards,

Jack

No suction at base...


Take the sole plate off and check for blockages - where the transparrent hose connects to the beater compartment
Are the filters clean?
Make sure the bucket is properly aligned to the main body
Make sure the inspection covers are clear and properly fitted.
They has be a blockage between the beater bar and the main hose which works ok.
Still no good?

If suction is not what it was, check all of your hoses and connections for vacuum leaks. And the beater roll should always be turning - check out the belt for slippage.
