Your cyclones are clogged. It's a common problem with the dyson dc17. I have one and just found out by googling it. The only way to fix it if Dyson won't is to disassemble it to get it completely clean. You can google this and there are complete instructions and photos so you can do it yourself.

DYSON DC19 Lost half power at the source. No blockage, clean filters, turbo head clear which has stopped spinning. Barely used. Can the motor half blow? It is still drawing 1400 W on a power meter in...


Hi Peter, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC19 isn't picking up as well as it should be. Have you washed the filter recently? We recommend washing it at least once every 3-6 months using cold water without detergent. Make sure the filter is completely dry before replacing it, which could take at least 24 hours:

If the filter has been washed, it's likely that there is a blockage somewhere in the floor tool, wand or hose that you may have missed. I appreciate you've already checked for this, but our support guide will walk you through the steps needed to locate and remove any obstructions: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc19t2/dc19t2/my-machine-is-not-working/check-extension-tube

If you've followed all of these steps and have not resolved the problem, please contact our experts directly so we can help. You can reach the Dyson Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

If my system is stopped up will it make a noise inside when i plug in my hose it makes one out side at canister but not at my wall hose


Yes. A clog will cause the motor to work harder resulting in a higher pitch. To prevent the motor from burning out the clog needs cleared ASAP.
This could be something as simple as cleaning the filter, but it could also be a blockage in the hose. This will be more difficult to clear, but if you can attach the handle end of the hose to the vacuum and turn it on, it may clear it. If not, you'll probably need to take it to a repair shop.

NO CYCLONIC ACTION IN DUST CUP


Look for ALL the filters. You may be suprised that most cyclonic vacuums have 3 filters. These get clogged up quickly and when that happens the cyclonic action stops completely. Look under the clear cyclone dirt catcher, there is usually a dust filter there and it gets stopped up real easy. Look at the back of the machine, there is usually one back there too. Check the hose going into the vacuum cleaner as well. In short, follow the hoses in the same way the dirt would follow them. Somewhere along the path, there is a stopped up filter. I do this everywhere I go. Nobody ever cleans these things out.

Stopped suddenly, won't start back


Your vacuum has an auto shut off when motor gets hot. It comes back on after 1 hour & is cooled down. While it is cooling down, you want to check the following; look for either a blockage in either the main hose, or lower hose, or just need to clean the dust cup foam & filter, & check the hepa filter on the side of the vacuum.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.


Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

The vack just stopped working no lights or anything was using it for a couple minuits and it just stopped


Sounds like your machine may have overheated and tripped the motor protect fuse. Does it turn back on after an hour or so?

Check your hose for blockages. Disconnect the hose from the machine and get a small marble and see if it will pass from one end of the hose to the other. If there ism you may need to pass a broom through the straight end to try and dislodge.

Make sure the you don't have a full bag. Also check the motor filter inside the bag cavity to check for blockages.

If there are no blockages and the bag is findm you may need to refer to a Service Center. It's a reasonably new model, so check your warranty papers.

My fusion just stopped. i was vaccuuming and it


One item to check is this: This unit has a temperature overheat device.
Unplug the unit for 20 minutes, then plug in and turn on the switch. If there was a blockage in the hose/cup/filters, this could cause the overheating.

If this does not resolve the problem, it will need disassembled and checked with a continuity meter to determine the component that failed (motor, switch, cord, or TCO)

Check the hose and dirt inlet for a blockage. Also the brush roll, check it to see if you can turn it or not by hand. If not, then something may have jammed it.
