Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?

So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out.

Suction only coming through the wand when its replaced its not switching back to the upright. I have a dyson DC28 animal


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC28 doesn't seem to be working correctly. It sounds as though the change-over valve may be jammed - this diverts the suction to the hose when you remove the wand, and back to the cleaner head when you replace the wand on your machine.

You may find a blockage is jamming the valve - you can check for this using our online Support guide:

My dyson vacuum appears to still have suction but it doesnt


That means that the belt is stretched or worn. This causes the roller brush to not be able to turn the way its supposed to against the resistance of the carpet and therefore won't pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here are the belts you need:

Problems with Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Vacuum very little suction coming from the hose. cleaned filter and suction has not improved. Please help. Thanks


Two possible solutions come to mind. First off, there is a clog in your hose. If you have another vacuum, try using the hose on that one to **** it out.
If that doesn't work, you may need to have the clutch replaced. Check your warranty. The clog wont be covered, but the clutch will be,

My Dyson Animal Dc07 is having problems suction problems


The most common problem with this machine is that either the filters are blocked, or you have a blockage in the hose. Check and replace fiters if necessary.
