on the bottom plate are 3 spots, one in the center and one at each corner, that need a flat head screw driver to loosen. turn left to unlock, this will remove the plate so you can clear the debris from the brush.

SOURCE: HOW DO I DISMANTLE THE ROOT CYLONE ON A DYSON DC17 ANIMAL

The Cyclone Cylinder needs to be cleaned with hot water poured over the cyclinder and into the cylinder until the water is clear. Afterwards, shake the cylinder several times to get the excess water out. Then let the cylinder dry out for at least two days along with the filter. When my DC17 began to smell like a dirty dog, I discovered that the cylinder had a ton of hair inside it. It took quite awhile to get all of it out. Be patient. Now I know to clean my Dyson every month; otherwise, it will emit a doggy odor.

SOURCE: Power shuts off on my dyson dc17 animal

I had the same issue. Got on the phone with Dyson. THe vacuum has a safety feature where if the motor gets too hot it cuts off. You have to leave it for 45 minutes or so and then it will work again. There is an underlying issue though. My problem was the black gasket thats in the debris bin shifted, probably from when emptying i pushed it on something. The black gasket should actually hang off the bottom like a skirt and the 2 groves should fit in on the groves of the gray mechanism. This seal is what provides 100% suction. Because of this..my vaccumm has been accumulating pet hair by the belt which i hear alot of people talking about and especially in the filter area. This is because I broke the seal by not having the gasket in place properly and it wasnt sucking 100%. They are sending me a complete new cyclone unit which has the debris catcher as well as she said its probably so caked up with debris it will never work again 100%. no questions asked they are sending it to me free of charge.

So if you remove the clear cyclinder debris catch thing all you will have is the purple cyclone on top and on the bottom is the black rubber gasket....

Dyson has no suction and hose doesn't work


Hi Brenna, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17 Absolute. I can see that you've already checked for blockages, but the issues you've describe do strongly suggest that there's a blockage somewhere in the machine. You might want to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide, as this should help you locate any obstructions you may have missed:

http://content.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=955&product=DC17-ANIMAL

If you aren't able to find a blockage, but continue to have difficulty with your vacuum, please email us so our experts can help further. You can reach us at askdysonUS@dyson.com.

Best wishes,

Dyson animal 17 the floor part works but when you stand upright to use hose is shuts off?


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC17. If the machine shuts off when standing in the upright position, it may be overheating due to a blockage in the wand, hose or U-bend. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL

It's also a good idea to give the filter a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance please call us free on 1-866-693-9766 or email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com

Best wishes,

My dyson dc17 the u pipe on the bottom cant get it back on and now the twist thing came off too help


Hi there,

For directions on refitting the U-bend, you might find it helpful to take a look at our online support guide for this machine:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=972&product=DC17-ANIMAL

The U-bend should simply slide into place, so you can secure it by turning the catch with a coin. However, if the catch has now come off, it may be best if you get in touch with our Helpline for further assistance - they'll also be happy to help with any other queries you may have. You can call free on 1866MYDYSON, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com.
