Question about Dyson Vacuums

1 Answer

My dyson stick vacuum 35 works ok on lower suction mode, but when I use the high suction mode, i turns off. I can restart it, but it only works for a few seconds.

-I have washed the filter. -I have emptied the canister and checked for clogs in and around the suction ports, as well as the "screen" atop and inside the canister. -I have tried all of the attachments, same problem. -I It isn't the wand, as the intermittent on and off happens whether or not something is attached to the motor part of the vacuum.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Firstly check that the brush bar control on the cleaner head is in the correct position. You may have switched the brush bar off the last time you used it or the dial may hav got knocked when you vacuumed under some low furniture.

If this is in the correct position but the brush bar is still not turning, switch the machine off and remove the soleplate by turning the 3 fasteners on the base of the machine and checking for blockages and remove any threads or hairs around the brush bar.

I would recommend washing the filter if it hasnt been done for a while.

You may find it useful to follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions in your user guide, however if you no longer have this available you download a replacement for free via the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards
Darran

Hi there, it sounds like you have a blockage in the hose. I have made a video to show you how to get the hose off and linked it to this answer. It is possible to split the hose in places trying to get the blockage out so try not to be rough. If you do damage the hose you will need to buy a new DC07 hose it is a waste of time trying to repair. If this was a helpful answer please take a moment to rate it or leave a testimonial.

    SOURCE: my dyson 15 wont turn on

    Hi there,

    Your DC15 is fitted with a safety device which shuts the cleaner down if it starts to overheat. This will usually be due to a blockage - the filter may also need a wash. The easiest way to check the cleaner for any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

    http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=813&product=DC15-ANIMAL

    In normal use, the filter needs washing at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it. For further guidance on doing this, please see the video below.

    Once the cleaner has been allowed to cool down for at least an hour, you should be able to restart it - and by washing the filter and clearing any blockages, you can prevent the issue from reoccurring.

    If you need any further assistance, get in touch with us directly by calling free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

    Kind regards,

    No suction


    If you have a bag-type vacuum with a clean bag, check the nozzle, hoses and roller to make sure they're not blocked. (If you have a bagless, make sure the canister is empty.) Also look for other air filters built into the vacuum. In addition to the bag, my vacuum has 2 filters. If a filter gets clogged, suction will go down and the motor will over-heat.

    My new dyson digital slim only runs for 9 minutes and says on the box to run for 15 minutes. Can I return it


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    Good news - you shouldn't need to return your machine! Dyson Digital Slim cordless vacuums have two power levels - high suction power mode for regular vacuuming, and Boost mode, which provides 6 minutes of highest suction power for tackling tougher tasks.

    It sounds like you're using your machine set to Boost mode, which will reduce runtime to around 6 minutes. To change back to normal power, hold down the on/off trigger so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the round illuminated Boost button on the rear of the machine.

    I'm confident this will resolve things - if not, Dyson experts are on hand to help. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline for further assistance by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    How do i turn on boost


    Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

    In Boost mode, DC59 offers 100 airwatts of suction to tackle really stubborn dirt or clinging pet hair. To activate Boost mode, just hold down the on/off trigger so the vacuum is running, then press and release the Boost button on the rear of the vacuum. To change back to regular power, you would follow the same procedure - holding down the trigger and pressing the Boost button a second time.

    Brand new dyson DC40 has no suction at bottom


    Hi Marin, it's Jack at Dyson.

    DC40 is a powerful mid-size Dyson upright vacuums, and we wouldn't expect you to have any concerns about performance on hard flooring or carpet. As long as the machine is used and maintained as described in the User guide we would not anticipate a change in performance, and we're on hand to help if Dyson owners need assistance.

    It's important to note that for effective pickup, the cleaner head needs to form a close seal with the floor surface. Simply placing a hand under the cleaner head does not give an accurate idea of suction as you're not creating a seal, as you would be when you place your hand right across the end of the wand or hose. If you turn on and recline the vacuum, turn off the brush bar then lower the cleaner head onto something like a sheet of newspaper, you should see the newspaper held tightly against the soleplate by the vacuum's powerful suction.

    We're keen to discuss this with you, and to help ensure your DC40 is working as well as it should be. Please email your full contact details to my colleagues at askdysonUS@dyson.com, and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible to provide further assistance.

    I have an older dyson pet vacuum & no suction when


    Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

    To fix any you vacuum problem, a proper maintenance will do the trick. Most of the time cleaning the filters, checking for blockages and clearing the passageways, and cleaning the brush roll assembly will resolve this. And if after doing maintenance it is still the same, that replacing the parts will most of the time make your vacuum work like brand new.

    You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Dyson replacement parts for your Dyson vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

    Why would the vacuum have no suction?


    if the motor is running it could be a belt a clog or a hole somewhere else in the hose

    My machine has suction at the port where the canister fits on the base, but immediately sounds clogged with no (or very little) suction going to wand or floor. All filters cleaned (accesible) and no clogs...


    I will list the spots to check this vacuum for clogs. First see the first diagram I uploaded.

    ironfist109_17.png

    1. First thing is to remove the canister.
    2. Then you will see in the diagram "A." Press that button and pull the hose up and check for blockages. Make sure to check for light through the hose to guarantee no blockages.
    3. Now tilt the vacuum forward and pull out the U Bend Airway and inspect it as well (3rd pic in diagram)
    4. Now squeeze the valve release catches to remove the airway and inspect the valve for blockages. (4th pic in diagram)

    ironfist109_18.png

    1. The diagram above is the pre motor filter many forget to check.
    2. Press the filter release catch and pull the filter housing out.
    3. Remove the filter.
    4. Wash real good and let dry completely.

    • Now the one thing that tends to go bad on these vacuums is the automatic air flow adjuster. When the vacuum is upright the pathway for suction is automatically on the wand. After some good use the little disk in there snaps and the air flow stays restricted in what ever position the vacuum is in. I have contacted Dyson a few other time and they do not sell this part. It is a factory fix only or I would give you the instructions to do it yourself.

    • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

    On the back of my lg kompressor vacuum below the retractable cord is a suction plug that keeps sucking in when the vacuum is turned on it is supposed to stay out the increase suction. what is the solution...


    Remove the hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and you will probably find a large amount of debris lodged in the hose. That hose leads to an opening right behind the main roller brush. If you remove the brush, it is easier to remove any clogs that are inside the hose. Once you have checked that there is no clogs in that hose reconnect the hose and the brush. You should then remove all three filters and wash only the two filters inside the canister. The third filter is a HEPA filter located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum. Make sure you do not wash the HEPA filter.Clean it by tapping it inside a trash can outside the house since a lot of dust will come out of it. Once the other two filters are dry, put them back inside the canister and also jake sure that the canister is empty and clean.

    Very poor suction.No obstructions in hose.Just cleaned filter and emptied canister.


    Are you getting good section at the wall inlet? If so, see below.
    Check for a clog inside the power nozzle. Detach wands and drop a small coin into connection. It should fall through. If it doesn't, there's a clog that needs cleared.
    A leaky hose could be the problem. Any vacuum hose is often mistreated, though intentionally. But due to the length of the CV hose, it undergoes quite a bit. Being constantly dragged around corners and pulled around, as well as improper storage can all result in holes/leaks in the hose. A few tiny holes throughout the length of the hose will result in an often dramatic loss of suction.
    How old is the vacuum? It may be time to replace the hose.
