Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
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.
