    Hi Michelle,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson machine. From your description of the issue, it sounds as if there may be an obstruction in the cleaner head, or threads or hair wrapped around the brushbar. I can't provide specific instructions on resolving this, as you haven't stated which model of Dyson you own. However, if you visit and click on 'Support', you'll be able to identify your machine from the list - our step-by-step guides should help.

    Alternatively, if you'd prefer to speak to someone in person, please call our Helpline free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can provide assistance.

    Best wishes,

    Your hose is clogged. Take it off and clear the obstruction. I would also check to be sure something isn't jammed in the inlet to the clear canister. If that is not it, you need to clean your filter

    My Dyson Absolute does not restart...I emptied a full cannister...cleaned the filter etc...but pushing the power button nothing happens...What should I do next?...Thanks gil

    I would make sure that there is no micro switch that is stuck, and also that the canister is seated properly.

    Assuming it was working before and that it is still plugged in, that is all I can think of.

    Dyson dc17 making loud sound

    It may have a bad clutch belt. When the belt on the clutch begins to slip it makes a terrible noise. If the noise is gone when the brush roll is off you will have to take it to a dealer.

    Loss of suction Dyson Absolute dc17

    More than likely the sole plate on the botom of the cleaner is plugged, take the bottom plate off and clean it out, also make sure your brush is clean and not full of hair. This is common on this vacuum

    My Dyson Absolute has started making a loud noise and the has gotten progressively more difficult to push. I'm guessing the self-propel has stopped working. Is there a quick fix?

    Hi its Darran at Dyson.

    Try making sure the brush bar is turning when in the vacuuming position. It is possible that the brush bar is obstructed which can cause your machine to make this noise.
