Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward. Took it to a technician and he said he could find nothing wrong. He had only short nap carpet for test. Works fine on short nap, if the carpet nap has any lenght to it like shag, the dyson severly nose dives. It`s like the nose is sucked into the carpet. This problem just occured after the wife used the hose when doing the sofa, returned the hose to the operating position and the problem occured. Thanks Kevin Earwood 402-468-4353

SOURCE: Dyson Animal hose collapses when using attachment hose

You have a clog in either your hose or your wand. You need to take off the wand and hose and inspect them.

SOURCE: Vacuum throws dirt onto machine and not in it

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though your machine is blocked. This is why the dirt is being dropped back out on your floor and also why the bin is not filling up.

Simply follow the blockage procedure in your user guide, or on our website at www.dyson.com. Visit the support section and you will be able to download a user guide. This will also allow you to confirm if the machine is correctly assembled and that there are no parts missing on disconnected.

Kind regards
Darran

SOURCE: dyson animal not sucking. Have cleaned out all

I had this problem with my DC07 and found the top of the cyclone was stuffed full of compacted dust.

You can (should be able to ) see all way to the top if you look up through the bottom of the center column. If ther's a load of dust up there, you should be able to dislodge a lot with a cane and a good shake.

I actually got to the point where I had nothing to loose, so I actually took the very top plate off the cyclone (3 or 4 Torx screws) and saw a huge plug of dust.

Do please note: Getting the top off and back on again is a **real bugg*r** because of the unlatching mechanism.

Having proved that Dysons **do** clog, I phoned Dyson and got hold of someone technical.

I described as briefly and concisely as I could the problem - top of the cyclone full of dust - and pointed (politely) out that Dyson's advertising stated clearly the machine was supposed never to clog. Ever.

I made no attempt to disguise the fact that my vacuum was out of warranty.

Dyson simply sent me a new cyclone and dust can free of charge!!!

Cannot push my DC17 animal forward on plush carpet. front digs in.


Make sure brush is spinning properly and that all wheels on base plate are there and spin freely. Make sure bottom of baseplate is clean. If these are all ok you may need a model that offers height adjustment for your style of carpet.

How do I make the machine easier to push forward ?


Dyson will tell you to remove the gaskets from the cleaning head. I have 2 Dysons, both of which became impossible to push after new carpet was installed. I was skeptical, but it worked.

Why won't my dyson d28 vacuum? I step on the foot and it won't tilt?


The manual is here, amongst other places:
Dyson DC28 Animal User Guide Around Page 4, as labeled in the manual, it shows the operator stepping a foot onto the lower unit and pulling the handle back. It's a common instruction for every Dyson upright I've looked at a manual for. Pull a little harder and it should tilt. Try moving it through the full range of motion a few times, and also make sure the lower click connector for the accessory hose if firmly seated at the bottom rear of the unit.

Good Luck!

Pushes hard over the carpet and left lines in the new carpet. My father pulled it backwards and seemed OK. It just pushes extremely hard forward. The Dyson is about four years old and have not had any...


Check the axles of the wheels for debris accumulation. Also, make sure the height is set for the type of carpet that you have. Try pushing the machine on a bare floor--is it hard to move there also? Hope this helps!

dyson vacuums are not self propelled. and if you cannot push it on your carpet then the pile of your carpe is more than what the vacuum can handle.

Dyson dc07 will not tilted into operate position. It feels like soemthing is keeping it from tilting. Any help would be great


Hi.

Your problem will be with the manifold on the front left hand side this is the part that slides back & forth as you pull handle back & up.

remove instection port from the manifold.
Try pulling back the handle while trying to slide manifold up & forward as it moves the handle will go back.

Dyson suddenly hard to push on carpet


I know this sounds silly, but it works. Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it (off the plastic on the bottom that rubs on the carpet as you push and pull it). I thought my husband was out of his mind when he told me that was the solution, but it really works.

DC07 Very difficult to push forward.


on the front of the base there are 3 very small rollers made out of rubber, these are either just dry and won't turn or worn and or damaged,

that is your problem / honest its that simple
