Dyson's are terrible vacuums. Sure they look cool and may work for a couple months but they start to "fall apart" no more than a year. If you have pets, then i suggest you spend the money on a machine that won't break down or give you silly issues like a Dyson would. This vacuum is called a Miele Cat & Dog.

Our DC17 is loosing suction. How many filters muist be cleaned?


This video is for replacing the clutch & belts, but it also shows how to take out the hose underneath & inspect it for holes or damage to see if that's causing suction issue http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

My Dyson Animal 14 is not producing enough suction to pick up dirt. What should I do?


Check for an obstruction. There are several cleanout ports built in to make this easier.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. If your only going to use it once you can remove the washable filter it is likely choking the suction off and is in need of replacement. If this improves the suction you can purchase a replacement dyson filter here. Hope this helps. Happy Vacuuming :)

Noisey DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum; lack of suction...


Hi there it's SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. It is very likely you have a problem in the radix assembly or the filter is actually worn out. Basically to test either simply remove one then turn it on to test. If it runs better with out the filter (washable is most likely culprit) simply purchase a new one. If it is the radix assembly that is the problem it is possible to clean inside the little tubes by taking off the top and literally clearing dirt and fluff out with the help of a coat hanger. Alternatively a new one can be purchased. If you are in Australia or New Zealand I can help you with either part. Just put in a request via the email link n our website. Hope this helps regards Alec

Our dyson has lost it's suction


Most likely blockage in the foot. Check for hair etc wrapped on the brush and clogging suction port. Twist 3 plastic 'screws' ati clockwise 1/2 a turn and remove base to access the brushes.

Dyson DC7 full Kit, with one belt does not get suction to head.


Not absolutely sure about this, so your feedback will be very welcome.
What follows applies to the DC14, which I think is similar in this respect: 
Stand behind the machine, holding the handle at a 45 degree angle. Locate and remove the airway inspection valve (bottom of handle, right side). Where the valve plugs in there is a square plastic moulding that should slide up and down. Snap that square plastic piece up towards the ceiling. After it snaps into place, the machine should stand upright.
Good luck, and please let me know how you get on!
