NOT PICKING UP OR SUCTIONING

NOT PICKING UP OR SUCTIONING AS WELL AS IT DID WHEN I FIRST PURCHASED IT.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It would be my suggestion to change the belt and to clean off the brushroll. A suggested belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months depending on the use of the vacuum, and if you have a geared belt (with teeth) then the belt change is once a year or so depending on use, check the hoses to make sure they are clear and clean the filter or change the bag, this should take care of the problem. On you next request please specify the brand name & model #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Not suctioning effectively


Hi Shari,
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25. If the machine isn't picking up as well as usual, this may be due to a blockage - the filters may also need a wash.
The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
http://support.dyson.co.uk/support/dc25/dc25-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-suction

In normal use, the filters should be washed at least once every 3 months, as shown in the video linked below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for them to dry completely before replacing them.
http://support.dyson.co.uk/support/dc25/dc25-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/filter-washing-video

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice, please call our Helpline free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
Best wishes,

My floormate is not suctioning very well. Tech support told me to take out the brushes and put them back in and this helped for a little bit then it went back to not suctioning. deb


When you took the brushes out, was there hair wrapped around them? Sometimes they just need to be cleaned off. When you take them off, there is a belt they connect to that also goes around a gear -- make sure the belt and gear don't have hair wrapped around them either.

Hope that helps!

I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way...


Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find a large blockage of debris. Hope that helps!
