Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Dyson DC07 My DC07 has been working fine, but now does not pick up. If you put hand over the tube end the suction is fine. Any ideas. Thanks

This is an incomplete solution. Mine (DC 14 Animal) worked great and\015\012then it didn"t and then it did after checking to make sure that all the\015\012parts were on securely. I noticed that while the suction sort of seemed\015\012normal, it was not strong enough to pick op fine dust from window\015\012sills.
\015\012
\015\012The elbow thing near the floor on the right side was not seated\015\012properly. I fixed that and it worked great for a while and then lost\015\012too much of suction again for no apparent reason. I took a look on the\015\012Dyson web sight and they have a trouble shooting guide. The first step\015\012is to inspect the main filter and clean it. If I do this again I'll go\015\012through the rest of the check process before I clean the filter with\015\012cold water as recommended to avoid waiting (12 hours?) for the filter\015\012to dry. Mine did not appear dirty and I was unable to rinse out scads\015\012of dirt.
\015\012
\015\012I followed the instructions for clearing airways and checking seals...\015\012with the canister removed, all suction seems to be fabulous. I'll know\015\012in the morning if it really works again after the filter is dry and I\015\012can reassemble the thing.
\015\012
\015\012Short version? Try the troubleshooting guide at Dyson.com. I'll try to\015\012add to this if it works like new again! All in all, it seems simpler to\015\012maintain and trouble shoot that any other vac I have owned.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck,
\015\012

My vax won't **** dirt up but suction feels strong when I put my hand on the end of the pipe. I've checked it's empty,cleaned the parts including the filter and there aren't any blockages. What else could it be? What can I do to fix it? It's a model 121 (orange) and about 17 years old (worked fine until this week) Thanks in advance!

I have a Flotec shallow well FP4122-08. A burglar stood on the pump this summer to gain access to my goats building (window). There's a small black tube that came off at both ends. When I put the tube back on, it shoots right back off as soon as the pump is plugged in. I don't know the name of the part (tube) to order a new one, and I don't know if it just plugs onto the fittings of both ends, or goes into the pump at the end with the round fitting on it.

My Dyson DC14 Animal doesn't have the suction it used to. The piece in the back on the bottom - a flap it appears - stays open now, causing the machine to make a louder noise than usual. At first, if I put my hand on the flap opening it would close, allowing for normal suction. Now, it stays "open" permanently", causing the loss of suction.

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But

My Hoover vacuum is not vacuuming the carpets or floors. When I release the tube to use the smaller end the suction works perfect.
