Question about Vacuums
This is an incomplete solution. Mine (DC 14 Animal) worked great and
then it didn"t and then it did after checking to make sure that all the
parts were on securely. I noticed that while the suction sort of seemed
normal, it was not strong enough to pick op fine dust from window
The elbow thing near the floor on the right side was not seated properly. I fixed that and it worked great for a while and then lost too much of suction again for no apparent reason. I took a look on the Dyson web sight and they have a trouble shooting guide. The first step is to inspect the main filter and clean it. If I do this again I'll go through the rest of the check process before I clean the filter with cold water as recommended to avoid waiting (12 hours?) for the filter to dry. Mine did not appear dirty and I was unable to rinse out scads of dirt.
I followed the instructions for clearing airways and checking seals... with the canister removed, all suction seems to be fabulous. I'll know in the morning if it really works again after the filter is dry and I can reassemble the thing.
Short version? Try the troubleshooting guide at Dyson.com. I'll try to add to this if it works like new again! All in all, it seems simpler to maintain and trouble shoot that any other vac I have owned.
