probably 99% of the time its the belt that turns the brushes and/or the bearings on the roller brush itself have tightened up either due to being clogged or plain just worn out...pretty sure its the rubber belt though...
Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson. I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC44 Animal. It's normal for air to blow out of the back of the machine - this is where the exhaust air is returned to the room after passing through the cyclone pack. However, if your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual and you've recently washed the filter, this may be due to a blockage. To check the motorised carbon fibre floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand The motorised carbon fibre floor tool is driven by it's own motor, rather than the machine's airflow. If it isn't rotating, the video attached should help you locate anything which could be jamming the brush bar. Make sure you remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar carefully using scissors, taking care to avoid causing any damage to the bristles. I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like some further help you can reach the Dyson customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US). Best wishes, Jack - Dyson Online Customer Support http://www.dyson.com
Sounds like a blockage. I have a DC14 and I have never had this problem. You can easily remove the wand from the flexible hose and the flexible hose from the machine to check for a blockage. Don't allow paper or larger items to go into the machine, especially the wand, pick it up by hand first. Find the online manual here: http://www.analogstereo.com/dyson_vacuum_owners_manual.htm
You obviously have a pet and it's good to see your machine is doing it's job. The only reason you could lose suction while collecting pet hair is due to the pet hair being a solid mass and air not been able to flow through the filters.( must be a lot of hair). Suction loss is only when the particles passing through your machine are dense therefore it will reduce suction and airflow . Very common on vacuum cleaners. Do not worry too much . Also check to see if you have Amy cracks in the seal between the drum and the vacuum cleaner itself
Check that the dust channel from the sole plate/brush head isn't clogged. Open the trapdoor (usually orange in colour on the base) and inspect the dust channel - sometimes dog hair can get trapped between the main dust channel and the feeder. Other than that take off the main hose and see if there's a clog down there as well as the main part where the wand locks in at the back. Its reasonably easy to get a clog out from a Sebo X range model.
Sometimes when you take them apart and reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on the lever at all) that switches from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere are no clogs in the duct then that the most likely problem
