Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Spitting Out Debris

My Dyson dc07 is picking up dirt - you can see it in the cannister - but it's spitting out crumbs, rice, etc back onto the rug. I can feel it hit my feet. So it's not doing a great job, just moving the crumbs around. I've cleaned the filter, wiped the inside, and my husband has checked for blockages - and the brush is spinning - any other ideas?

The beater bar (rotating brush) can kick back crumbs if the suction is not at 100%. This can happen if the vacuum has been used for a number of months without a thorough cleaning.
First thing is to not let the dirt canister get too full. The more full it is, the more dirt is sucked into the "cyclones" which are meant for only fine particles, not big pieces of dirt.

I'd then check your elbow hose connections (the ones that snap out easily). Then check the Hepa filter. When I lost suction with my Dyson DC07 the Hepa filter was a mess. But the inner cannister seemed to be really dirty also, so I dismantled it (this will void the warranty) and washed it out under the kitchen sink. Do not try this unless you know exactly what you're doing, but mine was an extreme case, as the Dyson was used by family members for about three years and they probably never cleaned the Hepa filter, etc.
Now I'll at least wash the Hepa filter (and housing) twice a year, as Dyson recommends.

Vacuum picks up some dirt and debris but not all, and spits some back out?


Some blockage at the pickup or in the hose if it uses one---dirt etc being kicked back out is a clear sign of this----if it has a tube check that first, and if a head with turning brush do not miss looking for a blockage there.

Dyson DC25 is barely picking up, but what it is picking up is not going into the cannister,


Your problem is posted in the wrong category, so probably no-one reading here (Telescopes and Binoculars etc) will have the solution.

Vacuum cleaner not picking up and sometimes spits ouit dirt


Check to see if bag (or if not bag then chamber is full).

Check to see if filter is clean.

If your vacuum has a bag, check to see that it is properly mounted.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific but it would help if you would specify what type of vacuum you have, whether you are using the hose or just the floor part, and where it is spitting the dirt from.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know the answer to the above questions and we'll go from there. Good luck!

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

Shuts off in upright position and spitting dirt back out


it is a blockage. Dyson cuts off in this case to prevent overload. Also leaking dirt indicates blockage. Strip everything out you can. Remove foot plate on base and check for hair or fibre blockage. it may be small and in an odd place.. seek and ye shall find. If not, return to dealer for service. Good vacuum though.

How do I open the dirt cannister on a dyson animal (purple) so I can empty the dirt out?


This is fairly easy. Click on the button at the top of the hand above the cannister. It's a purple button and the handle faces the front and says Dyson on it. This separate the cannister from the body.

Next, hold the now full cannister above a trash can and click on the red button which was below the purple button (but hidden when it was attached).

Not picking up fuzz


I've had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal, although there WAS suction and the machine seemed in otherwise good condition, the vacuum seemed to be working normally, yet very little was vacuumed up. I would go over and over sections of carpet and get very little debris in the container. In my case, the cleaning brush roller bar was competely covered in debris (hair, dirt, string, stuffing from our chewed up dog toys, etc.). I removed the bottom cover and manually removed all this debris from the cleaner/brush roller, reattached the cover and it worked like new with great suction.

Obstruction in the hose?
Your vac has developed a hairball possibly.... when a piece of flexible media ie.... cardboard, plastic etc... gets lodged in the hose, and begins collecting hair & dust to the point it no longer has enough draft to pull debris from the floor.
Here is a video that you may find useful

PS I Thought DYSONS were guranteed to NOT lose suction? What a RIP!
