The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. 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.

I have a Dyson DC44 Animal that I cannot get to work properly. It seems to have lost its suction after the first use, which wasn't that impressive. I have two cats, and when I run the vacuum over my carpet...


Hi Lauren, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC44 has twice the suction of other cordless vacuums, and we certainly wouldn't expect concerns about performance. Boost mode provides 8 minutes of highest suction power for really stubborn dirt or clinging pet hair, but for day to day vacuuming normal mode should be sufficient.

From your description it sounds like your machine may have a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. Without suction to carry debris through the machine and into the clear bin, hair may be more likely to wrap around the brush bar. We're happy to help you check for this, and to remove any obstructions.

You may also want to wash the filter if this hasn't been done recently. We recommend doing this at least once a month, using cold water without detergent:


When you have your DC44 fully-charged and near 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). We look forward to providing further assistance.

Why won't my Dyson DC44 rechargeable vacuum brush attachment not work or pick up anything?


Hi Kim, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC44's motorised cleaner head doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be, it sounds as if there is a blockage somewhere. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/maintaining-your-dyson-machine/removing-blockages-from-the-power-floor-tool

The video I've attached should also help you check for and remove any threads, hair or debris caught around the brush bar.

If you'd like further help after you've given this a try, please get in touch with us directly so our experts can talk you through some additional troubleshooting checks. You can reach the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Loss of suction


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC44 Animal. It's normal for air to blow out of the back of the machine - this is where the exhaust air is returned to the room after passing through the cyclone pack.
However, if your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual and you've recently washed the filter, this may be due to a blockage. To check the motorised carbon fibre floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions, 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
The motorised carbon fibre floor tool is driven by it's own motor, rather than the machine's airflow. If it isn't rotating, the video attached should help you locate anything which could be jamming the brush bar. Make sure you remove any threads or hair from around the brush bar carefully using scissors, taking care to avoid causing any damage to the bristles.
I'm confident this will resolve the issue, but if you would like some further help you can reach the Dyson customer Helpline directly by calling us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
Best wishes,

The filter keeps getting clogged with dog hair everytime I use it


Some dog hair is extremely difficult to manage. You will just have to keep an eye on it and empty the collection bin every time u use it. Joe

Noisy on rugs!


Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.

Have a good day

Hair around wheels


No. I have 3 women and 2 dogs under my roof and have the same problem. My wife uses a Eureka vacuum that cost $140.00 and it seems to handle this better than our old Kerby.

We take a broom and swiffer and collect what hair we can from the bathroom areas, etc, before sweeping to avoid this problem.

Belt not turning


It could well be the dog hair. You'll need to remove the roller brush and completely clean it off with the hair which sounds like it has wrapped itself around the brush and the brush end washers. Check that the entire roller brush is completely clear and if any dirt is found at the sides, remove it.
