I have had Dyson All Floors model,( the one with the clutch
adjustment to allow transition from
carpet to hard floor) for a number of years. Recently pick up from carpet
particularly poor. Went through all the solutions as recommended on Dyson
website. No blockages, no broken sole
plate, bristles (should be around 7mm to
8mm long) protruding ok from soleplate ( these can wear slightly over
time but not usually the problem), belt not broken nor slipping. Filters
cleaned/ replaced, but still poor pickup. Checking for strength of suction, as
recommended by Dyson, both at top of hose and at bottom right inlet revealed no
problem there. It turned out the clear
inlet hose coming from the soleplate to the underside of the machine was the
problem from two viewpoints. Firstly, as can be expected, the clear hose
can develop splits after a number of years due to wear and tear. The other, not
so obvious, problem is that the hose is also a form of straight spring which is
designed to be compressed to a certain degree to an S shape when the machine is
in the upright position. Upon pulling the handle back, whilst pushing on the
footrest at the bottom results in pressure from the hose/spring being applied
to the rear of the sole plate, pushing it on to the carpet. Thereafter the
suction takes over, keeping the soleplate firmly fixed to the carpet. The
existing hose on my machine had settled in to an S shape over the several years
I have had the machine, thereby not pushing firmly enough the rear of
the soleplate on to the carpet ( I
noticed a significant gap at the rear whilst using the machine). For the couple
of splits I had effected a temporary repair using a couple of very narrow
strips of Gaffa tape, whilst awaiting the new hose/spring, but only a marginal'
if any, improvement. Upon receiving and attaching the new hose/spring the solepate
was properly pressed onto the surface of the carpet and pickup was like new.
