Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again. I tried the clutch reset suggestion (turn it on its side and turn the carpet/bare floor switch slowly back and forth) and instead of resetting the clutch, the roller bar literally broke, as in a few pieces of the roller bar have broken off. Is it worth it to get it replaced again, or should I just look into buying a new vacuum???

Dyson filters smell after cleaning


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're concerned about your DC15.

If the filter smells, you may want to take a look at the video below to make sure you're washing it as we recommend. Please use cold water without detergent, and make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing it - allow at least 12 hours. You may find it helps to place it somewhere warm, such as in an airing cupboard, or by a radiator. This should be done at least once every 3-6 months.

This should help, but if you're still concerned, please give our customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), so we can provide further assistance.

Best wishes,
Jack

Hi there! This is John from Jerry's Vacuum Sales in Modesto Ca. Are you using any type of carpet fresh product on your carpet? If so the fine powder is leaking onto the filters and causing them to clog. Discontinue use and over time the problem will correct itself.
I hope this was helpful.

We have a Dyson for several years and now it is very hard to push. In fact the front edge seems to be digging into the carpet as if it is a snow plow. Is Dyson a piece of **** and only lasts a few years ?


It probably needs a new brush roll. Not surprising after "several years". On some models it's advisable, or even essential, to fit a new soleplate at the same time. An easy job and not too costly.

My DC 16 will only run for a second each trigger pull. The battery is fully charged, it has plenty of suction, just wont run for more than a second. I cleaned the filters.


I had the same problem with my Dyson DC16, where it only runs for a few seconds at a time with each trigger pull. My husband called Dyson (Canada) and without hassle they shipped us a replacement part which I just received this morning. The replacement part sent to us is: DC16 Main Body with Rating Plate. It is also under warranty for 1 year. The great customer service makes up for the flaw in the machine. Also, Dyson is aware of the problem. Hope this helps.
