Question about Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

The Dyson was working fine, I took the filter out, washed and dried it, put it back, and it seemed to work fine for about 30 minutes. Now the air will not pull from the bottom, only from the nozzle.

Sounds like the belt may have broken.Turn it on and look at the brush.See if it is turning if it is not,replace the belt.To replace the belt you have to remove the plate on the bottom.The brush has a groove on it.That is where the belt goes.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel a few inches back from the brush.

Why does my dyson filter smell of dog *** when i let it dry before replacing it after washing


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

As you'll probably be aware, DC59 has one washable filter, engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum. We recommend washing this at least once a month using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below:

Always allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take at least 24 hours. Replacing the filter when damp could cause damage to the machine not covered under guarantee, and could also contribute to any odour coming from the vacuum. It may help to place the filter somewhere warm to dry, such as by a radiator, in an airing cupboard or on a sunny window sill.

Please note, the cyclone pack and clear bin should never be washed or submerged in water as this could cause permanent damage to the vacuum. However, it is possible to separate the clear bin from the cyclone pack as shown below. You can then use a soft brush to remove any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud, and you can wipe the inside of the clear bin with a damp cloth to remove any clinging dust particles. Make sure the bin is completely dry before reassembling.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further advice on cleaning or maintaining your DC59, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My Dyson Ball DC 25 made very loud noise when I put the hepa filter back on. I just washed the hepa filter and it had been dried for more than 24 hours. After I took off the filter, the sound was normal....


It sounds like it could need replaced or there is something stopped up in it somewhere . Clean all the crevices in it dirt could possibly be congested in it . If it still does it after you clean it out change the filter .

My vacuum throws dirt out and hits my feet.


Hi Peggy,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. From what you described, it sounds as if your machine has a blockage. The filter may also need a wash.

Although I note you already took it apart, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide to make sure you haven't missed anything:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/wand-suction

In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. We'd recommend using cold water without detergent. Leave the filter somewhere warm to dry, such as in an airing cupboard or by a radiator, for at least 12 hours, and make sure you don't replace the filter in the machine before it's totally dry.

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

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.

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).

My dyson stops suction after about 30 minutes and will start back in about 45 minutes or so.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC14 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the cleaner if it starts to overheat. This is often due to a blockage, or because the filter needs a wash. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=626&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US

The correct way to wash the filter is shown in the video linked below. The filters should be washed in cold water without any detergent, at least once every 3-6 months. Always ensure it's totally dry before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1461&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


By clearing any obstructions and washing the filter, you should be able to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

Cleaning the filter


Hi, If you wash it, just run the water through it, squeeze it out and leave in the sun/near a radiator.
Once its dry its safe to put back in.

If you visit http://www.sparesaver.com/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/ they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

Dyson DC07


This is an incomplete solution. Mine (DC 14 Animal) worked great and then it didn"t and then it did after checking to make sure that all the parts were on securely. I noticed that while the suction sort of seemed normal, it was not strong enough to pick op fine dust from window sills.

The elbow thing near the floor on the right side was not seated properly. I fixed that and it worked great for a while and then lost too much of suction again for no apparent reason. I took a look on the Dyson web sight and they have a trouble shooting guide. The first step is to inspect the main filter and clean it. If I do this again I'll go through the rest of the check process before I clean the filter with cold water as recommended to avoid waiting (12 hours?) for the filter to dry. Mine did not appear dirty and I was unable to rinse out scads of dirt.

I followed the instructions for clearing airways and checking seals... with the canister removed, all suction seems to be fabulous. I'll know in the morning if it really works again after the filter is dry and I can reassemble the thing.

Short version? Try the troubleshooting guide at Dyson.com. I'll try to add to this if it works like new again! All in all, it seems simpler to maintain and trouble shoot that any other vac I have owned.

Good luck,

Tim
