As this unit has 3 filters on it, a lot of people forget about the one filter that will cause all of your trouble here.

There is the exhaust hepa filter, no problem, your unit is pretty new, it shouldn't be a problem.
There is the circular filter in the chamber where all your dust and debris collects. It is in the top portion and will come out with a twist. This filter is washable. Warm water and no soap.

The third filter, and this is the one that is most commonly overlooked, is just below the dirt container you can take out and clean. It is in a grey "tray" that pulls out and the sponge filter is in the tray. As a word of warning, it is probably pretty dirty. Again just wash it, warm water no soap, and you should be good to go.

PLEASE make sure that the filters are DRY before putting them back into your machine.

Good luck.

Dyson 41 lost suction


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

There are a few potential solutions you should try. Start by checking your unit's brushroll and clear it of any tangled hair strands or debris that my be blocking the airway. Follow by checking the internal hose for any blockages.

If the unit's suction is still not normal, the problem could be related to your filter. Filters should be washed frequently after every 1 or 2 uses or at least once a month, and replaced every 3 to 6 months for optimal performance.

My vacuum has lost the suck when I try to use the hose


Hey there! It sounds like you may possibly have a clog in your hose. Try removing the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends. Use a broom stick to loosen and remove any clogs from the hose. Your filters can also affect suction power so be sure to clean and replace any filters if needed. Hope this helps!

Hi there Our vacuum cleaner exerts no pressur and it doesnt **** anything from mat,, it is just 4 months old bt we have missed the receipt,, cadsn u please help us? thanks and regar


Check your filter/bag especially if you've used it to clean fine particles; they will tend to clog the filters or bag and cause loss of performance. It the filters/bag are good and/or new, check for an obstruction in the hose or suction tube.

Suction problem


first thing you need to do is replace the disc filter benieth the conical shaped shroud. also there is batting in the upper part of the vacuum tat should be replaced once every 4 years as well as it gets clogged with carbonfrom the motor. this increases the air flow through the vacuum keeping the motor cool and increasing your suction as well. the disc filter benieth the conical shroud should be replaced every 6 months under normal use and every 3 months under really dusty situations, and if vacuuming up fine talk powder every month. also check for a clog in the hose by hooking the hose up to the blower port on the top of the vacuum.

NO SUCTION COMING FROM BOTTOM OF VACUUM


even though the belt isnt broken you should replace it also make sure the height is raised up on the nozzle. try dropping a marble through the hose to double check there is nothing stuck ( the attachment hose and the small hose that runs to the floor )

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.

Sounds like you have a clog somewhere. Check the filter inside the dust compartment, if is very dirty it won't allow ait to flow thru, Part #62132, DCF-H filter. Check the hose, take it off if you can and drop something in it to see if it comes out the other end, if it doesn't, then the hose is clogged. Check bown by the brush roll, the inlet may be plugged. Also if the belt is more then say 6 months old, you may want to replace it, I am sure it is strertched, part #61120B, extended life belt.

You checked the belt, but I bet it has stretched and won't drive the brush roll under load like it should. Belts only last a few months the stretch and should be replaced. Iff you have suction at the hose, then it has to be down below, either belt/brush roll, or the inlet by the brush roll is clogged.
