Hose buckling/crumpling when hoover is turned on

Hi - I'm having a problem when I turn my Dyson DC07 on, that the suction is causing the hose to buckle/crumple out of shape which then means I can’t hoover through the hose. After a short while the motor starts to overheat from trying to maintain suction through the crumpled hose

Is it simply time to buy a new hose, or is there anything else I can do to fix this problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Dyson DC07 All Floors Bagless Upright
Once you hose starts to breakdown there is really nothing you can do other than replacing the hose. This is true on almost every vacuum on the market because they are using in most case the plastic hose and the heat and the product you pickup breaks down the hose and starts to lose its strength and starts to collapse. You may want to check with your local vac dealer to see if he has a new one or a good used one for ½ the price. 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.

Dyson vacuum wand doesn't work


The manual for the DC07 can be found here (
500 Error Dyson ) (The PDF tag is saying 'Error Dyson', but it still seems to work in getting to the document)
The most likely issue, under-documented for most Dyson uprights, is that the wand suction will *only* engage when the main handle is in the full upright position. In that position, the brush motor will also always stop spinning. I found this out after much wondering when I bought a DC07 at a flea market. Got a great deal when I plugged it in there and couldn't get the brush to spin, and the storage locker clear-out guy just wanted to get rid of it. That said, it's a common point of dodgy documentation for the upright Dysons, IMO.

It could also be line blockage. Remove and check the U-Bend piece, remove the hose line (un-clip at the bottom and pull off), stretch it, and see if there are obstructions. My fave way to deal with blocks in there is to use a pair of pliers to bend a small, blunt U-hook in a wire coat hanger that's been bent into 'marshmallow-roaster' long-skinny shape, then go in carefully from the ends and see if you can hook stuff and pull it out. Some crumpled paper can be amazingly effective at tenaciously holding to the walls. Be careful to look through the stretched hose wall when doing this to make sure you don't hook the hose wall and tear it.

Good Luck!

Dyson DC07 belt change has resulted in very noisy vacuum!


Hi I agree with the first 2 solutions above but not the 3rd one.
If you have suction coming through the hose when the machine is in upright position then the u bend has nothing to do with this problem.

Right so ... The belt snapped.

The answer to you question is "why did the belt snap" its true that it could just be old age but its more likely to have been caused by a foreign object being sooked up.

How the belt/brushbar/motor interact

Your belt simply connects the motor to the brushbar know as Direct Drive. If an object get inside the space between the motor and the brushbar or if it can jam the brushbar then this will cause the rubber to burn. The motor will keep spinning and the belt wont be able to so will snap.

So its easy to see that the belt has snapped and people just think "'oh the belt has snapped"

You might wonder where im coming from here.

Anyway because the brushbar got jammed it may also have been buckled slighty either as a result of the foreign object causing it to stop suddenly from spinning at high speed or/and the result of the heat build up.

The rattling noise you now find your Dyson making is more than likely because your brushbar is buckled and when it spins the bristles are hitting the housing unit.

Your belt will snap again unless you replace the brushbar

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?


Check for a clog where the power nozzle connects to the hose. Clogs or leaks in the hose will both cause loss of suction/air flow. Another possibility is broken or worn out fan blades.

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.

Kind regards

Dyson Animal-suction loss


Had the same problem twice and washed the filter to no avail. Called Dyson to troubleshoot, and in one minute they had me removing the purple plastic noodle shaped piece towards the bottom on the side (the next time it was the silver noodle on the opposite side). Inside was a bent pen and tons of debris wrapped around it that slowed the suction. Poked the debris out, and it worked perfectly.

Dyson DC07 hose has no suction


Just resolved the same problem...couldn't find a blockage anywhere, but pulled handle out of hose and extended hose as far as possible upward. Aha! There was blockage in the hose at the very bottom where the flexible hose meets the rigid part.. There is a lever which releases the entry to the bottom of the hose. A pencil, lots of coins, a crumpled receipt and general dirt were stuck. Easy to clean and now it works like new again.
