Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

No suction at base...

Yup. Looks like several people had this problem.

I have the animal (purple) version. I've cleaned the beater and it spins well also check the hoses - no obstructions (or holes).

Works fine if I use the wand - but that's not too practical for the entire floor!

At the cost of a replacement, I'm pretty frustrated about now.

Take the sole plate off and check for blockages - where the transparrent hose connects to the beater compartment
Are the filters clean?
Make sure the bucket is properly aligned to the main body
Make sure the inspection covers are clear and properly fitted.
They has be a blockage between the beater bar and the main hose which works ok.
Still no good?

I have a DC41 Animal. It has suction through the hose. When I try to vacuum it stops sucking through the hose but seems to have no suction in the base and the beater roller doesn't work.


Check for a clothes peg at the motor iintake port. They can get that far then jam at the curve so tight youll wonder how you missed it. It will drastically reduce suction yet not cause a clog , and you can't see it

Very little suction at beater brush.


Hey, this is Leland with Crucial Vacuum,

If the brush bar is not working properly there may be several reasons.

Firstly, the motor may be the problem. If you hear any noises while the machine is running, you should contact the original manufacturer for trouble shootingsolutions.

Secondly, your vacuum may be in need of new parts. By changing either the brushroll or belts, you should be able to increase the quality of the suction.

Why does the suction stop after 10 minutes of use on my Dyson DC43?


Your vacuum may be overheating and shutting off the suction motor. Clean the cyclone assembly and the filters to see if they could be restricting the airflow.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Low suction


Hi Megan,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. If it doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, you may have a blockage somewhere in the machine. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL

Although I note you've already cleaned the filter, please see the video below to check you've done it correctly. In normal use, the filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months in cold water. Don't use detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve your issue, but if you need any further assistance, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com so we can help.

Kind regards,

Jack

No suction for rugs but the hose works fine. Removed the canister and suction is at that point


Hello,

Remove the base plate and beater bar. Clean the suction cavity behind the beater bar. That's where they almost always plug up.

Hi the suction on my dyson hoover has gone very poor. I have cleaned all filters but suction is still pretty poor.Is there anything else i can do?


your problem with Dyson is the reason why a lot of them end up in the trash. here is the link to an article that will help you locate the cat fur, or hair or other debris that is lurking inside your machine and causing you to loose suction
