I am losing suction and it sounds as if there is a leak in the vacuum(I hear air rushing around). There is also a high pitched noise. Dyson dc07. Can there be leaks in the gaskets where you clean hoses and filter? are they replaceable. Does the noise suggest the bearings are going in the motor?Is it worth getting fixed?


It wont be a gasket problem - they don't tend to fail. \015\012\015\012A high-pitched noise can be a number of different things. That is too vague to diagnose on here with the description you have given. Can you be more specific? ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

Hello- My wand has lost a lot of it's suction. I am sure it's clogged somewhere. I cleaned everything after watching a video on U Tube, but it is still not sucking properly. My model is the Dyson DC28 Animal air muscle. I have only had it a few months. Also, I am not having any luck finding a local Dyson repair shop. I live in Pella, IA. Thank you, Kim

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear and no blockages. Is it the belt I don't think it is. or motor ? Grateful for any advice.


It could be the belt. However, the popping sound does have me puzzled. The popping could be coming from a partially broken belt slapping against plastic.Jim ... Vacuums

My dyson 25 animal has lost suction from the floor portion of the machine. All the hot hair is coming off the front bottom part, by the ball. Its as if the connection of air has been disconnected. The attachment works fine, though.

My dyson dc08 has a loss of suction. A flap valve operates within a few seconds of startup which appears to divert air. I have replaced both the hepa and sponge filters but the problem persists.

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

I bought a Dyson Vaccum for pets. Spent around 700 for it, and thought it was the cats meow. They promise that there is no lose of suction, and oh boy is that a joke.
