Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi- I have suction loss in the hose when I am trying to use the handheld tool- any suggestions?
Had the same problem twice and washed the filter to no avail. Called Dyson to troubleshoot, and in one minute they had me removing the purple plastic noodle shaped piece towards the bottom on the side (the next time it was the silver noodle on the opposite side). Inside was a bent pen and tons of debris wrapped around it that slowed the suction. Poked the debris out, and it worked perfectly.

Following the advice of other posters, I unlocked and removed the gray plastic u-shaped "trap" at the bottom of the handle. As others have noted, there was a pen (red Sharpie to be exact), caught in there and that had led to additional blockage just like a sink trap.
Now I remove the u-shaped piece every other week or so just to make sure nothing is caught in there.

I had no hose suction at all. Followed advice above. Noting was in the hose, but discovered that the clear plastic "Switch" behind the collection tube, in front of the "U" shaped tube was not aligned. For floor, it is in one position, then when you remove the attachments, the switch moves the hose tube by the "U". I manually moved the clear switch and then the tube. Must have been stuck, works great again.

HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!
If you're experiencing a loss of suction in your Dyson DC07's hose try stretching the hose out entirely to release any clogs. A handy way to unclog hard to reach spots in your hose is to use a broom handle. Another thing to look for is any tears in the hose.
General maintenance of your vacuums filters will also help with keeping your Dysons suction.
After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged. Even your hose.
It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter screen weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours. Be sure to allow it to FULLY dry.
