If you mean 'it will not turn on, only hiccups and blinks its lights, turning the filter does not (or at least not reliably) turn on the machine, nor does pushing the power button' the cause might be the controller board which sits between the filter holders in front of the machine. On that controller board you'll find a large-ish HQX (or similar) 1uf capacitor which is part of the power supply for the microcontroller (MCU, underneath the board). That capacitor might have lost so much of its capacity that the power supplied to the MCU goes below spec when the motor starts drawing power, leading to a reset.

Replace that capacitor with a similar or bigger version and it might just work again. In my machine I replaced the 1uF HQX X2 (250V~'275V~GMF) with a 2uF SHW 250V~ ripped from an old fence charger and the machine came back to life.

The large capacitor on the right side of the board is the one I replaced.

While you're at it, check the soldering on the controller and sensor boards and reflow anything which looks suspicious, there were a few cold joints on the sensor board on my machine which caused intermittent problems. Also clean the vacuum tube between the pressure sensor (on the left side of the machine) and the air intake (on the right side) and blow out the dust from the nipple which that tube connects to, on the right side of the machine in the air intake duct. You might also find the rubber hoses used to connect the tube to the pressure sensor and the nipple to have grown so much in size that they do not fit tightly. I solved this by pushing some insulation sleeve (ripped from an old wire) over those nipple.s, this makes those connections air-tight again.

Cleaning th exhaust filter may help. There are two exhaust filters. The standart filter which must be cleaned every 5-7 years, and the Hepa filter which must be cleaned every 2-3 years. There is no difference in how the filteres are cleaned or fitted. Remove the dust container by pressing the release button at the back of the vacuum cleaner and lifting the container.
Lift the two snap catches at the back edge of the vacuum clean and open thefilter cover. Lift out the filter.
Rinse the inside (dirty side) in lukewarm tap water. Repeat the process four times. (Note: do NOT use cleaning agents and avoid touching the filter surface. Let the filter dry and replace.

Not picking up


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.

When I turn on my dyson animal vacuum the red light flashes on and off and there is no suction


I think you have a blocked pipe somewhere. I use a large marble to drop through the pipes to see where the problem is.

My dc01 wand wont pick up


Hi Davina,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC01. If your machine doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be via the hose, there may be a blockage somewhere in the machine. The filters may also need to be washed or replaced.

To check for any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc01/dc01-standard/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual1/clean-the-shroud
In normal use, the filters should be washed at least once every 3 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filters to dry completely somewhere warm for at least 12 hours before replacing them.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298. Our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week, and calls are free from UK landlines.

Best wishes,

Do i need a neww vacum,my dyson dc24 ball not got any air pressure to suck any dirt up


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC24 - however, I'm sure we can help you get it working again. If the machine isn't picking up as well as usual, there may be a blockage in the machine, and the filters may need a wash.

The easiest way to find and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://support.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24/dc24-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/check-suction

In normal use, the filters need to be washed at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance, please get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.
