Question about Dyson DC59 Animal Bagless Cordless Stick Vacuum

3 Answers

My dyson keeps cutting out. It's like a pulse noise and works intermittently.

I've washed the filter, bought a new filter, checked the charger. If I take the filter out it works constantly, but when I put it back in it works intermittently again.

    This solved my problem, great and thanks. The bin inlet door was jammed, so I just pushed it from the outside, freed it up, and now the motor runs continously.

    I had the same problem cleaned it all and it was still doing it, then I discovered there is a small flap inside the unit where the pole part connects to the vacuum that was stuck, I gently pushed it with my finger it came unstuck, connected the pole and its started working perfectly again.

Hi

Thanks for making contact and I'm sorry you're having difficulty.

I would suggest that this is a blockage of some kind as the pulsating is caused by a lack of airflow (the motor is protecting itself by pulsating and then ultimately cutting out).

I would recommend looking at the following video which will take you through a methodical way of checking this. The model in the video is a DC59 but applies to most cordless models:

Furthermore, I would check the bin inlet to make sure that the one-way door/flap is not jammed as this also can cause the problem.

If you continue to have difficulty, please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Best wishes

    This is also covered in the Dyson V7 Instructions (supplied with the machine) Page 8. Pity Dyson produce machines with a wide pipe that then channels all the dirt through a half inch wide slot

Hi, you have a restriction of Airflow. This is caused by either an obstruction or a general build up of debris. In order to find the blockage you will need to take the machine apart. Check each part from the floor head to the bin. Common areas that block are the head unit and entry to the bin unit and exit into the bin unit.

Dyson V6 Animal keeps start and stopping.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your Dyson V6 vacuum is designed to make a pulsing noise to warn you when something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could be a blockage in the motorised floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also a good idea to check the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed in place.

Our video support guide will walk you through the simple troubleshooting checks:


I'm confident that removing any blockages and checking the bin inlet flap will resolve the issue with your machine. But if you would like any further help, just give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Dyson wireless hand held whirring sound intermittently with no suction as a result. Dust compartment empty ? Anyone ?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Dyson cordless vacuum are engineered to make a pulsing noise, then to shut off for protection, if something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. If this is occurring, it's likely there's a blockage somewhere in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also a good idea to check the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed in place by debris.

We recommend washing the lifetime pre-filter at least once a month using cold water without detergent, so please give this a try if the filter hasn't been washed recently.

Our video guide below shows each of the areas to check for obstructions. I'm not sure from your question which model you own, but the procedure would be very similar for all Dyson cordless vacuums:

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you'd like further help or advice you're welcome to contact our experts directly for some additional diagnostic checks. If a replacement part is needed, we can confirm whether this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why havemy dyson DC 59 has stated to pulse on and off after afew seconds of working?


Hi Dave, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59's motor will make a rapid pulsing noise to warn you if something is stopping airflow from passing through the machine. The motor will then shut off for protection.

This should be quick and easy to resolve by checking the motorised floor tool, wand and bin inlet for blockages. It's also a good idea to give the washable pre-filter a rinse in cold water if this hasn't been done recently - we recommend washing it at least once a month. Make sure the filter is allowed to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue. If you would like further assistance after giving these steps a try, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My dyson doc 62 goes off and on intermittently. How to solve this


Hi Dan, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC62 will pulse if something is preventing airflow from moving the machine. The vacuum will then shut itself down for protection.

This is simple to resolve by checking the floor tool, wand and bin inlet for blockages and giving the pre-filter a wash:


I'm confident this will resolve things, but if you'd like further advice after giving this a go, please call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU) for further assistance.
