Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Dyson Vacuum Smells like dog

Our old yeller lives on ....but in spirit and vacuum cleaner smells only. We don't get to pet him but he's getting us back for every time we left home alone a little too long. So whenver we turn on the DC07, he says "gotcha". We thought when he was gone after 14 years, we would at least only have good memories, not the lingering aroma of the area behind his ears. We replaced the filters but to no avail. He's permanently embedded in the vacuum. Any ideas? Thanks in advace...

Hi. Wash out the waste bin with hot soapy water strip down & thoroughly clean the vortex unit. Clean all hair etc from beater bar brush. Wash sole plate this is the part that you remove to get at brush roller. Remove long hose from rear of machine run hot water through it & leave to dry. Replace all filters with new ones. http://dysonmanuals.inc.io

Why is it important to have your carpets cleaned?


Regular carpet cleaning has a few benefits. One of the main reasons to consider doing it on a regular basis is help create a fresh-smelling and clean appearance in your home. Professionals recommend that you get a deep clean 2-3 times per year at the very least, especially if you have pets and children.

Standard in-home carpet cleaners are not always enough which is why it often recommended to hire a professional carpet cleaning service to use their amazingly powerful equipment to get the deep clean your carpets and home really needs. Allergens, dust, dirt, pet dander, human dander, and bacteria are often silently wreaking havoc on your family's immune system, which is where a professional carpet service comes in and should be regularly scheduled.

I have model#UD40350 total pet compact. The lower vacuum brushes don.t turn.


Hi! It sounds like you have a broken or stretched belt. The belt controls the brush roll. If you are using the vacuum on carpet, you need the brushes to spin to agitate the carpet fibers. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to replace your belt. I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed.

1. Lay cleaner flat and flip to expose nozzle base. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws.
2. Lift and remove brush roll and dispose of old belt if you see one.
3. Slide belt (style 19) onto motor shaft.
4. Place new belt on area of brush roll without bristles.
5. With new belt in place, pull and slide brush roll into nozzle making sure that the brush roll end caps are in the correct orientation.
6. Replace all screws to replace nozzle guard.

When I use the vacuum it smells like something burning but it does work. How do I fix this? Thank you Sharon Post


Hi ssharonxxx...

Sounds like you have hair,strings,debris caught on the beater bar and it is causing the belt to burn on the beater bar or motor.
Remove the bottom of your vacuum and clean,oil and replace the beater bar, that should solve your burning smell problem.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Last time I used my Bissell Pet Hair Remover vacuum it smelled like something was burning and it left a black mark on the carpet. What should I do?


When you smell burning like that it usually indicates that the belt is worn and slipping on the motor shaft. You probably need to change the belt. You can get the belts for your model here:

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Get rid of pet urine odor in the vaccuum


Susan,
I think you can find your solution with any number of products found at petedge.com. The decision you are really left with is what odor you prefer as they have pine and citrus scented products. You may also be able to find comparable products at a local pet super store also. It will be a laborious task though as you will need to soak the hose if detachable and scrub the vacuum itself. An easier but perhaps less effective way would be to buy a carpet shampoo odor eliminator solution and allow the vacuum to do the work for you. Obviously you will need to change the bag before and after if your unit using bags. I hope this is of assistance to you and I have provided a link below to the specific web page for Pets Edge Odor eliminating products. My wife is in the pet service industry and loves this store. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of further assistance please let me know.

My Vacuum cleaner smells bad. What can I do to stop that?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Depending on the brand name and model # you should do a few things, try changing the bag and or change or clean the filter depending on what type of vacuum you have, a dirt cup model or a bag system. The vacuum cleaner dealers have Vacuum crystals that can be sprinkled down on the carpet and then you can pup the crystals from the carpet with your vacuum. If not I suggest that you take it in for a good and general cleaning – a lot of times the dirt and dust get built up under the hood and just sits there – especially if you have pets and it is a hard smell to get rid of unless you have it serviced or cleaned. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
