Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

My Dyson vacuum cleaner overheated and won't restart

I was using the wand to pick many dried flowers that had fallen, or were about to fall, from a Christmas cactus when the motor shut down. I smelled an acrid odor that was indicative of an overheated motor. After an hour the vacuum still won't turn on again. Is there a circuit breaker or fuse that needs to be reset / replaced?

Usually there is a onshot TC fitted to the motor once it pops its popped and you have to replace the motor assembly.

Dyson Animal not picking up What can be wrong?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most of the time the reason why vacuum is not picking up is due to loss of suction. You may need to check for blockages of your wand and hose. Remove the wand and hose from your cleaner when checking for blockages and any damages. Make sure to turn off and unplug your vacuum from the power before doing this. Please refer to this troubleshooting guide for more information on how you can remove blockages:

Tip

Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 - Removing a blockage from the wand or hose


If your Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 upright vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be through the hose, wand or cleaning tools, this may be due to a blockage. A blockage could occur if an item too big for the machine has been accidentally vacuumed up.

After turning off and unplugging the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video to locate and remove any obstructions from the wand, hose and changeover valve.

No suction Dyson DC44


Hi there Donna, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC44 seems to be running as normal but has no suction, it's likely you have a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. The filter may also need a wash.

To check for and remove any blockages, 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

DC44 has one washable filter, engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. This should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allow the filter to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like any further help from our experts after giving these steps a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dyson suction problem


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson. If the cleaner won't pick up via the cleaner head and will not stand upright, the valve carriage needs realigning. This is simple to do - please follow the steps shown in the video below.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice with your machine, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07 Animal. From what you've described, it sounds as if the wand has been replaced on the cleaner without the hose being retracted. To remove the wand from the machine, hold the cleaner securely in place by placing one foot on the cleaner head, then pull the wand up forcefully whilst holding the purple quick-draw hose release (located above the on/off switch) down. Make sure you are not leaning over the top of the wand as you do this.

Once you've freed the wand from the cleaner, make sure you retract the wand before replacing it on the cleaner again. Hold down the hose release button on the hose cuff as you retract the wand inside the hose.

You might find it useful to refer to the user guide supplied with the cleaner - in case you don't have this to hand, you can download a copy here:

If you have any further queries about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, please call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need. Alternatively, you can resolve many issues without picking up the phone by visiting www.dyson.com and clicking 'Support'.
