Hello bnsbryan :

1: Check that the Dyson's brushbar knob is turned to the "Carpets" setting for vacuuming non-delicate and raised pile carpet. Vacuuming carpet on the "Bare floor" setting usually leaves a telltale single wheel mark on the pile, and pickup is severely limited.


2:Locate the removable filter on the side of the vacuum. It will be marked with a raised circular representation.

3:Press down on the release button with your thumb as you lift filter housing up and out

4:Examine the filter for debris. Wash the blue foam and yellow framed filter in cold water. (See Tips section.) Let dry for 12 hours. Do not wash the outer filter housing that snaps into the vacuum; simply wipe clean with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Replace the filter when completely dry.

5:Locate the airway inspection valve on the opposite side of the vacuum. Press the release button as you lift the valve up and away from the machine.

6:Remove any debris or clogs you find inside.

7:Use a soft cloth to clean up lighter debris and completely clear the airway valve.

8:Tip the Dyson vacuum over to find the U-bend at the back of the unit. Press the release button as you pull the U-bend down and away from the machine.

9:Inspect the U-bend and remove debris. Be sure to line up the release button as you snap the U-bend back into place.

10:Check all removable pieces to be sure they are attached properly and snapped correctly into place. The soleplate should be flush with the cleanerhead.

What you need for this :

  • Large slotted screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Washcloth
  • Soft cleaning cloths
  • Household surface cleaner, safe for plastics
  • Crochet hook or similar long-handled tool

Warning :

Unplug the vacuum before doing any troubleshooting. Follow all manufacturer's instructions and warnings. The yellow encased filter and blue foam filter pad can be submerged and rinsed in cold water only. Do not use detergent. Do not wash or dry in dish or laundry machines. Do not dry in the oven or microwave.
PLEASE RATE !

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.

Suction is terrible


First be sure that all parts are securely attached, even removing and reattaching can help ensure a properly seated connection. Next check to make sure the filters are clean. Finally check the carpet beater head, to make sure it's free from hair and other debris.

If none of this works, call or email Dyson, even if your warranty is expired, they maybe able to help out further. They have GREAT customer service!

My Dyson 14 Animal seems to not have the suction


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Firstly check that the brush bar control on the cleaner head is in the correct position. You may have switched the brush bar off the last time you used it or the dial may hav got knocked when you vacuumed under some low furniture.

If this is in the correct position but the brush bar is still not turning, switch the machine off and remove the soleplate by turning the 3 fasteners on the base of the machine and checking for blockages and remove any threads or hairs around the brush bar.

I would recommend washing the filter if it hasnt been done for a while.

You may find it useful to follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions in your user guide, however if you no longer have this available you download a replacement for free via the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Kind regards
Darran

My Dyson is making an airy sound a few seconds after it starts working. The suction way degrades after this.


check the large rubber seal at the bottom of the cyclone. if there is a gap between this seal and the bottom of the canister then dirt has passed through the motor. chances are the motor is shot. This was a design flaw so it should be covered under warranty if its less than 5 yrs old

You need to purchase a new hose - you can search for it online (DC07 External hose) or you can simply call the Dyson helpline and order it through them.

Dyson Animal with no suction from floor brushes


Check the canister seal for dirt or gaps. This is normally where the vacuum leak is.
