Most likely you have a bad motor bearing. It's a pretty common problem with vacuums of this type... a good way to check is to open the bottom where you replace the belt, and look at the motor pulley. If it's blued, your bearing is most likely generating heat and bluing out the pulley. (Bad.)

The less safe but more accurate method of checking this is to run the vacuum for a minute or so, then physically check the motor pulley for heat. If it's ridiculously hot, your motor is toast. (Please be careful when doing this: ensure that the machine is unplugged, and note that it can get hot enough to burn you... Ask someone you're not fond of to touch it if you don't want to get burned.)

It your motor bearings are bad, you need a new motor, which probably will cost almost as much as the machine did.

If you've only used it 4 times, I probably wouldn't try to fix it yourself, since it's probably still covered under warranty. My best recommendation would be to take it back to your point of purchase for refund or exchange.

Hi! My Dyson DC17 starts fine and then, within a second, gets very loud with an extra sucking noise.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17 includes a suction relief valve. This allows extra airflow into the vacuum to protect the motor if the machine is used when blocked. If you've already washed the pre-motor filter and checked all the ducts for blockages, it's possible there's an issue with your machine's cyclone pack which has caused it to block.

We'd appreciate the opportunity to help you check for this - please do not continue to use your machine in the meantime as this may cause damage. When you have your DC17 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Accessory hose not sucking


Try taking the hose off, and making sure it is not stopped up, either in the hose, or where it attaches. Straighten a wire coat hanger and run down the hose to check for obstructions.

Hope this helps!!!

Kenmore progressive vaccuum


Did you replace the hepa filter with a new one? Those filters may not look bad, but after a period of time and use, air is restricted thru them. They should be changed at least once per year.
