Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Hello, I have a Dyson DC17 that is not working properly. I emptied out the canister to find the tiny holes clogged on the cyclone part of the vacuum. How can I unclog those holes? Thanks!


Answers :

I had this problem. Part of the clyclone is hard plastic and part is softer - where the holes are. Basically, I removed the rubber gasket at the bottom and kept beating on it - thumpig the hard plastic on a hard surface and then banging the softer sides against a rounded corner. Eventually, I got about a cup of dirt out of it. It now works well.
\015\012I presume that you have cleaned the filter, too. Slower air velocity won't help this problem.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry.
