Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Lost suction my DCO7 lost suction in the hose I started taking it apart and cleaning it and looking for clogs (probably more than I should have) and when I put it back together it has awesome suction in the hose but no suction in the base. It just pulls the pine needles up (christmas tree) but they never appear in the "bag" compartment and when I look they are just all gathered in a clump in the bottom by the brush.

Re: lost suction


Remove the sole plate turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock & lift off.

Now remove the blockages that have accumilated from the oppening of short clear hose.
Check you can turn brush roller & check belt.

Now reassemble switch on pull handle back & look under machine is brush spinning ?

If not check the knob on side of machine is in drive (D) position.

Lost suction but no cloggs in line

see the solution; God bless you
How to determine a clog in your hose
Take your central vacuum hose and connect it directly to the dirt canister. After turning on the vacuum if the hose has normal suction here then the clog exists in your tubing.
Click here for help with tubing clogs. But, if you experience reduced suction at the canister then your hose is clogged. See Solutions below.
check.gifPlug hose in reverse into the inlet located on your unit and turn on the system. This should aspirate the clog out.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from the inlet and push a garden hose through hose to push out the clog. Most importantly, the garden hose must be turned off and there should be absolutely no water entering your vacuum hose.
check.gifOr, remove the hose from inlet and drop in a heavy object such as a screwdriver to push out clog.

My vacuum lost it's suction power. I've looked to see if it's clogged and the container is clean. What's going on?

That type of vac is notorious for stopping up where the 90 degree turn is. You may need to access it from the vac head by removing the beater bar or take it apart where ever you can access the turns and hoses.

The suction is good, but it can't pick up most of the stuff on the floor. The hand held hose works very well, but it doesn't even pick up little fuzzies reliably when I push it along. And, the suction is...

Check entire length of hose, including the piece in the power head, for clogs. Simply drop a marble in one end and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't, then the hose is clogged somewhere.

The wand has no suction

There's a clog somewhere then - probably at the end of the hose which means you should take off the hose at the bottom by the cord clip and have a look. Also check all inspection air ways to ensure there are no clogs. Usually if there's no suction through the handle a tell tale sign is that something has either got stuck or there's a tear in the hose. Hope that helps.

Vacuum hose has little suction.

There is most likely a clog in the hose. If the hose has poor suction the foot probably has poor suction as well seeing that the hose is what gives the foot assy suction.

Eureka 12 amp vaccum lost all suction how do I fix this?

There must be a clog somewhere in the line. I don't know this model, but if it has a hose, disconnect it and see if the machine has suction. If yes, then you know hose is clogged. If you don't hace hose, then you can try to take apart the air intake to unclog it. It is also possible that the motor runs, but the impeller on the motor is loose and is not spinning to create the suction. I would try checking and cleaning any clog first. Good luck!
