Question about Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hi I have a Dyson DC24 and the hose has become clogged with dog hairs (I wasn't watching and didn't empty it soon enough). I can't find anything in the user guide which will help with unclogging the hose (but I'm not very good at understanding picture only instructions). Is there any way of accessing the lower bit of the hose to get the dog hairs out?

    Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


    HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

    If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

    First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

    If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

    Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

    Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

    You can purchase replacement parts for your Shark direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

    Is there a way to clean the hoses in a Dyson DC24 upright?


    Hi Stacy, it's Jack at Dyson.

    We wouldn't recommend attempting to wash or submerge any of the hoses on your DC24. Any residual moisture could cause damage not covered under your machine's guarantee, potentially resulting in a chargeable repair.

    It's normal for the hose to become discoloured after a period of use - you can remove any external dirt or residue with a soft, dry cloth.

    If you'd like some further advice on this from our experts, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

    My dyson DC24 has very poor suction - all filters clean and hoses seem to be clear. had it for just over a year


    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear your DC24 doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be. From your description of the issue, it sounds as if there may be a blockage in the machine - to locate and remove this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

    http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24/dc24-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-suction

    You may also want to take a look at the video below to make sure you've washed the filters as we recommend. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for them to dry completely somewhere warm before replacing them. In normal use, this should be done at least once a month.

    I hope this helps - if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

    Used the vacuum cleaner to clean up damp baking soda on a mattress. Since then, the suction hose part is not working properly. Could I have clogged it? And what can I do?

    Beater bar is not turning...read that you must reset beater bar. Where is the reset button?


    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having a problem with your DC24. Resetting it is simple: after checking the brushbar is free of threads, hair and other obstructions, turn the cleaner to face you. You'll find the reset button in the red recess on the left-hand side of the cleaner head. Use the blunt end of a pencil or something similar to push it in until you hear an audible 'click'.

    For more detailed information on how to clean the brushbar and check the cleaner head for blockages, you may find it helpful to visit www.dyson.com and click on 'Support':

    Dyson upright sucks up great. Gets clogged within one of the beaters only and stops spinning having only vacuumed for a short while. We do have a dog and there is hair being sucked up also.

    The filter keeps getting clogged with dog hair everytime I use it

    Loss of suction in hose


    Hi its Darran at Dyson.

    It may be worth following the blockage procedure outlined in your user guide or on our website at www.dyson.com and look at our support section.

    If this doesnt resolve the issue, its likely that your DC24 is still covered by the 5 year Dyson guarantee as we only started manufacturing the DC24 about 2 years ago.

    If you need further help, call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).
