You more in likely have a clog. Get to the hose and get a cloths hanger with a small hook and pull out the clog. It may take some work but you will get it.

How do you remove the hose to ck for blockage?


If the hose collapses and there is no suction, that is a sure sign of a clog. The clog will be on the opposite side of the collapsing hose from the motor. Good luck.

A Dyson dc 17 Animal and the wand/hose has lost suction


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose assembly from the machine, switch it on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If its good here, then you know that the wand handle is blocked.

For the full diagnostics, check out the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com or call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

I just bought a used Dyson DC07. Works good but


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. To test this, please remove the wand from the machine and switch on, testing the suction from the top of the wand handle. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If its strong from the hose itself, the wand is blocked and you will need to clear this.

If there is poor suction from the hose, you can remove this by unclipping it from the base of the machine and can then remove any blockages. It is also worth checking the hose for any splits or holes.

If you need any further help or advice, please visit our website at www.dyson.com and check out our support section.

My dyson 17 animal started shutting itself off today.I cleaned all out, but it has almost no suction when upright,none with tho hose


This video is for replacing the clutch and belts, but you can also use this video to dis-assemble and reassemble to take out hose underneath to inspect for damage. If there's a hole in the hose, you may be losing suction.

Hose is not getting any suction


when vacuums shut off randomly it usually means they are overheating. this can be caused by a clog somewhere in the line of suction, or, perhaps due to a very dirty filter - either way, the motor is working hard and getting too hot.

try removing all the various tubes and parts along the suction route and checking for clogs (a flashlight might help too). also, have you rinsed out your two pre-filters lately as recommended in the Dyson manual? it might help.

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.

Dyson Animal hose collapses when using attachment hose


You have a clog in either your hose or your wand. You need to take off the wand and hose and inspect them.

Dyson Dc-17 Animal Doesn't ****


I had the same problem and today I finally called Dyson. They were very helpful. I disconnected the hose from the handle using the red release button. If you hold the handle up to the light and can't see light on the other side, there is a blockage. A wire coat hanger worked great to dislodge our blockage and it's working perfectly again!
