SOURCE: Dyson DC07 Original won't pick up at base

Hi,

Lie machine on its side pull back handle as if vacuuming & switch on (KEEP YOUR FINGERS & ANY LOOSE CLOTHING CLEAR OF BRUSH ROLLER)

Brush should spin if it doesnt ensure clutch control knob on side of machine is in drive position if it isnt rotate knob by hand to drive brush should now spin.

If it doesnt & your machine has A clutch either clutch will need replacing or belts will need replacing.

Manuals are available to replace belts & remove the clutch from this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

SOURCE: Very little suction in hose no tears in hose

Hi there, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au . I have fixed hundreds of Dyson DC07 vacuum cleaners over the last few years and i would say there are 2 possible causes for the loss of suction.
1st is that the filter looks clean but is actually worn anyway. The way to tell is remove the washable filter from your vacuum cleaner. Take out the foam insert this seems to last longer that the other part. Hold up the plastic cage to the light and look at the white part (well it used to be white anyway) you should be able to see light through it. If you cant see through it you need to replace it. Here is a link to that filter for purchase . To verify this is the problem just run the vacuum without the filter in you should see an improvement - note do not actually **** up material the filter is there for a good reason.
2nd problem is that you have a blockage in your radix assembly. If you take off the whole dirt bin and feel the suction on the upright part where the chamber joins the vacuum (basically bypassing the radix) if there is good suction here you will either need to replace the cyclone top or dismantle and clean it. (it is very difficult to clean as it doesn't completely dissassemble)
Hope this helps - If you want more help send me a message
HAPPY VACUUMING ! :)

No suction from dyson dc24


Clean or replace filters if needed. Check for suction at wand, if not good could be a clog somewhere or clogged filters, or a leak in the suction somewhere. If good at hose but not at floor it could be a clog or malfunction in changeover valve area. Make sure brush roll is spinning good and brush roll not worn out or frayed.

Loss of suction from base but ok from hose. filter cleaned and dried


Hello,

When the Cyclone Assembly on the Dyson is not spinning around, it usually means that you are loosing suction somewhere. This can either be caused by a clog, suction leak, or dirty filters. I will give you detailed step by step instructions along with pictures on how you can diagnose this.


Possible Problem # 1. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the vacuuming position with the handle down. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the handle was in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:

If you do find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. Dyson's in general are prone to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here are pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of these locations:

My simplicity 7200 does not have vacuum. Air comes out the front post filter area


If air is coming out of the filter air has to be going in through the suction hose but it may be restricted with a clog. Replace the bag and both filters. If it's been over six months since the belt has been changed start by changing the belt. Most of the vacuums brought to my store with the customer stating "it has no suction" actually have great suction but no agitation from the brush roll. If the belt is not turning the brush roll fast enough when vacuuming the carpets it will not even pickup lint and hair.

Loss of suction o=with hose tool


Hose or tool is probably clogged. Is this an upright? Bagged or bagless? Have you changed the bag and filters? Cleaned out the brush and hose that goes from the brush area to the collection bag/cup? The only reason for a vacuum cleaner to lose suction but still work is a clog or dirty filter which blocks the air flow. Follow the air flow from the brushes to the bag/dirt cup. If the machine is bagged, change the bag. I use another vacuum cleaner to do this.While your at it, might as well change the belt.

Thehose has no suction


remove and clean the filter. you can use a air compressor to blow it out or use a brass wire brush and tap the filter on the table until it looks nice and clean,, this will return the suction to your vacume. also at the same time as you are cleaning the filter, check the hose for any blockage ( especially down by the floor sweeper where the hose kinda bends down into the unit ) -- when a filter is dirty and the suction is not that great, dirt loves to collect and compact in this spot,, use a wire coat hanger to fish out and clean any debris.

There are six different reasons a vacuum can lose suction, a plugged vacuum hose, bad motor, full vacuum bag, or cracked or damage hoses. Purchasing a vacuum cleaner can be a costly expense while repairing the suction on the unit can be virtually free. Most suction loss problems on a vacuum can be easily fixed or remedied with common house hold tools and very little technical expertise.
If your vacuum cleaner losses suction, the first and easiest solution is to check the bag. If the vacuum cleaner bag is full suction will be greatly reduced and the unit will become ineffective. A vacuum cleaner works by passing air through the bag fibers leaving dirt and debris behind inside the bag. If the refuse bag becomes full, airflow is restricted, limiting the amount of air passing through the vacuum bag resulting in loss of suction. When replacing the vacuum bag always consult your owners manual to insure that the vacuum bag seals with the vacuum inlet hose. If your vacuum cleaner bag is not tightly sealed to the vacuum inlet hose you will decrease the air flow through the bag resulting in loss of suction.
The second and sometimes most common reason for loss of suction on a vacuum cleaner is a plugged vacuum hose. If the hose becomes plugged, air flow will become restricted. To unplug a vacuum hose detach it from the machine and inspect the inside. If there is a restriction in the hose, remove it with your fingers and replace the hose onto the unit. If the hose is long and the debris is hard to get too, a broom handle or other long object can be passed through the hose to dislodge the debris. Most vacuum cleaners contain more that one suction hose, so make sure to check each one by process of elimination. Another area that can become easily plugged on a vacuum cleaner is under the lower base of the unit by the roller brush. Large debris can get caught in this area and restrict air flow to the hose.
If your vacuum refuse bag is not full and the suction hoses are not plugged the next thing to check is the condition of the hoses. Many hoses are made from plastic which can easily tear or crack. If your vacuum cleaner shows signs of wear or are cracked they need to be replaced. Even the smallest hole in a vacuum hose can leak enough air to greatly diminish the suction potential of your unit. Replace your vacuum cleaner parts with OEM parts from the original manufacturer to ensure the tightest fit.
Most vacuum cleaners contain filters. Filters are used as a last line of defense to remove dust and smaller debris particles before the air is recycled back into the environment. If vacuum cleaner filters become dirty or plugged they also can decrease the amount of air traveling through the unit. Some filters can be easily rinsed with water whereas others need to be replaced. It is important to check your owners manual before rinsing a vacuum filter.
The last and probably least common problem for a vacuum cleaner to loose suction is a bad or failing vacuum motor. Over time vacuum motors lose power due to worn carbon brushes or long term damage. A vacuum cleaners worst enemy is moisture. If water or moisture is sucked into the vacuum motor it will greatly diminish the amount of suction the unit has. Replacing a vac motor can be a costly and time consuming ordeal. In some cases, replacing a vacuum motor can outweigh the cost of buying a new vacuum. Vacuum suction is measured in water lift which can easily be measured by using a water lift gauge. If the water lift measured in inches, falls below half the original water lift specifications for the unit, it is time to replace your motor. Most vacuum cleaner repair shops carry this type of equipment and can easily tell you if it is time for a new vac motor.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.


Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction


Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.
