Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

There is a loud noise coming from the bottom of the vacuum only when I have it on the carpet setting. It doesn't have this problem on the floor setting. What could possibly be wrong and is it easily repairable?? Thanks Linda

Check for a broken belt or something caught around the brush. To check if the belt is broken, try turning the brush by hand. If it turns freely, then the belt is broken and needs replaced. It also may be loose. If that's the case, it won't turn easily, but still needs to be replaced.

Squeeling noise dyson 33


Is it when you go from carpet to floor or floor to carpet? It will make a loud noise detecting a possible suction issue. I've also had loud noises and turned over the vacuum and where the brush is, traps hair, thread, rubber bands, etc. Just take a scissor and cut it all out. Don't cut the bristles. Roll the brush as you cut and pull all the stuff wrapped around the brush. Once it is free, try it again.

Eureka Optima Lightweight suction weak on bare floor, hose only works when dial is turn to floor?


I think it is normal. My favorite setting is the dial is turned to bare floor. If you set your vacuum to hose, then you need to adjust the height (do not set the dial to the bare floor).

It is probably the brush roll motor making the noise. Remove the brush roll & belt and turn both motors on. If you do not hear the noise when both motors are running the noise is likely coming from the brush roll

Loud noise with belt protection system On


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. The knob you're describing is the brush control, which turns the brushbar on when set to 'Carpets', and off when set to 'Hard floors'. The machine may not pick up hair from carpets if you have it set to 'Hard Floors'.

The brush control system is also designed to make a ratcheting sound to warn you if something is jamming the brushbar. The easiest way to check for and remove any obstructions is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=668&product=DC14-ALLFLOORS_US

Once you've removed any threads, hair and other obstructions from around the brushbar and cleaner head, you should find this resolves the issue. However, if you've tried this and are still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. The cleaner's brush control system is designed to make a ratcheting sound to alert you if the brushbar is jammed. Although you've already cleaned the brushbar, it's a good idea to follow the steps shown in our online support guide to make sure you haven't missed any obstructions in the cleaner head:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=650&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US

This should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've checked the brushbar and cleaner head are clear of threads, hair, or other obstructions, but the cleaner still seems to be making the ratcheting noise, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you to identify the cause of the issue, and will be able to recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Older Dyson 07 Animal, loud ratcheting noise on carpet setting


That is an indication that the belts are worn, stretched or broken. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt(s) you need and a manual you can view:

I cannot express enough you need to clean your dyson as great as it is its still a vaccum. look underneath at roller, clean out tube wash filter and check to see if vaccum ate something which is stuck inside. I have had mine for 4years and still picks up after 2goldens and kids.
