HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your vacuum is experiencing difficulties with suction there are several places you can check to help your vacuum operate at its peak performance.

Check out your brush roll. Look for any noticeable debris, and be sure to manually rotate the brush roll to unearth any hidden clogs that may be behind your brush roll. If you see carpet fibers, or strands of hair remove these with a razor, or scissor.

How do the bristles look on the brush roll? If they're loose, or look worn down then it may be time to replace the brush entirely.

Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight. If your brush roll isn't operating properly it won't be able to pick up dirt and debris.

Be sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction for your vacuum.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

SOURCE: A Dyson dc 17 Animal and the wand/hose has lost suction

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose assembly from the machine, switch it on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If its good here, then you know that the wand handle is blocked.

For the full diagnostics, check out the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com or call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

SOURCE: No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Will onboard attachments from Dyson DC33 fit Dyson DC40?


Hi CharlieFelicia, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 and DC40 include very similar onboard tools - a Stair tool, and a Combination tool. These share our click-fit connection design, so the tools from DC33 should fit to the end of DC40's wand, and also directly to the hose cuff for cleaning in confined spaces.

My dyson dc 33 doesn't have any suction at the bottom. I washed the filters and checked the hoses. But I suspect it is because I can't get the hand wand to turn off. It runs whenever I turn on the


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC33. When the vacuum is switched on and standing upright, suction will always be diverted automatically to the wand and hose for above-floor cleaning. When you recline the machine into the normal vacuuming position, the suction should be transferred to the cleaner head. Make sure the brush control is set to 'Carpets', as the brush bar will not rotate when it's set to the 'Hard Floors' position.

If it doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be, we'd appreciate the opportunity to talk you through some simple troubleshooting checks when you have your machine to hand. We'll be able to ensure everything is working correctly - and if a replacement part or repair is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

You can reach us by calling 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.

Why is suction too strong


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC33 is a powerful upright vacuum, with strong suction to clean carpets and hard floors effectively. However I'm surprised to hear you're finding your machine hard to use on this particular carpet type.

I would encourage you to contact us directly, as in order to help we would need to take some further information about the carpeting, and how you're using your DC33.

When you have your vacuum to hand, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I'm sorry to hear about the difficulty you've had with your DC33. However, performance issues are usually very easy to resolve with some quick troubleshooting checks.

It may be best if you can get in touch with us directly so we can help further - it's hard to diagnose the exact cause of a noise without hearing it.

If the machine needs a repair or a replacement part, they can confirm if this will be covered under the terms of the 5-year guarantee which covers all of our upright and cylinder vacuums.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Hi my dyson dc18 has great suction from wand but when you got to use the vac for floors little suction but wand still got suction even while vacuming floors is it suposed to stop suction from wand


My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty
