Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

I can't get the latch that connects to the brush head to engage. Thus the vacumn is extremely hard to push. It has suction, extreme suction. Rollers appear to be dragging. I've tried to remove and reinstall the head several times but cannot seem to get the latch to engage. Please advise.

It sounds like something has come out of it's socket. If the brushroll won't turn rapidly, your clutch is worn out

Has too much suction on hard flooring and short pile carpet making it impossible to use


Hi Helen, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC41 is hard to push, it's possible there may be damage to one of the soleplate rollers on the underside of your machine's cleaner head. This could cause it to seal more closely with certain floor types than intended, in turn making the machine harder to push.

With the vacuum switched off and unplugged, check the underside of the cleaner head for any jammed or damaged rollers, including the large central roller in the black section in the middle of the rotating brush bar. In normal use, all of the rollers should be able to rotate freely.

If you do find any damage, just give our experts a call so we can provide further assistance. If a replacement part is needed we can confirm whether this is covered under your Dyson guarantee. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

If your brush roll is turning and your bag is not overly full, then the only other thing it can be is a clog where the bag connects to the vacuum. Turn the plastic part out away from vacuum and lift off to see if you have something clogging it. It would have to be something big, but not so big that it could not get past the fan. As a rule of thumb, KIRBY never clogs. I suspect that your belt is stretched out and your brush roll is not turning while on the carpet so the brush roll is just in the way rather than brushing your carpet to pick up dirt.

Power brush will only operate on push stroke


If the motor runs, the circuit breaker is working. If it only works on the push stroke, you probably have burnt contacts where the handle and/or wands and/or power head connect. When you push, the contacts are pressed together; when you pull, they are separated and the motor loses power. The only solution is to replace the connector parts.

No vacumn action


Is the roller turning, if not you may need a new belt and/or brush roll. Did you check the inlet by the brush roll?

I like using a Wire Clothes hanger to work the stuff out with. If you fashion a fish hook of sorts out of the wire, you can catch things inside the brush head and pull them out.

I had this problem once too. When the hose is inserted into the vacuum, the floor unit (where the spinning brushes are) becomes the head of the vacuum. In other words, the suction goes through the floor part and then up through the hose and into the vacuum. If the suction is good when the hose is out, the the problem is blockage at the bottom piece. Take the cover off of the rollers (it is one screw then it pops right off) and see if there is a bunch of lint/hair/gunk blocking the suction hole. You could also take the hose part out of the vacuum and look down the empty shaft with a flashlight and see if you see anything there. Hope this helps!
