Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Vacuum works fine when using the attachments, but as soon as we try to use it in it's normal upright position it does not work. We have cleaned all filters and removed debris from roller, but nothing has helped.

Greetings,

\015\012There could be a few things that would cause your Dyson to do this. I will give you detailed step by step instructions along with pictures on how you can diagnose this problem.
\015\012
\015\012Possible Problem #1. The first problem is extremely common to see. In fact, we probably see between 2-3 of these exact problems each week. It mostly happens after people take the bottom plate off of the vacuum cleaner in order to clean the roller brush. What happens is that when they go back and reinstall that bottom plate, it gets put on incorrectly. It's actually extremely easy to do. When the bottom plate (soleplate) is installed wrong, there will be a gap between the bottom plate, and the agitator housing that the roller brush is contained in. This causes the soleplate to be a few inches higher off the ground then it should be, also preventing the brushes from even hitting the carpeting. This makes it seem to the user that vacuum has lost suction power because without the brushes hitting the carpet, the machine will not pick up very much, but when they use the attachment hose there's plenty of suction power.
\015\012
\015\012Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate from a customers vacuum that appears to have done just this. Notice the gap in between teh two housings:

\015\012Here's another picture, this time of the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0128b953d0.jpg\015\012
\015\012You should definitely check the first possible problem first. I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.
\015\012
\015\012Possible Problem # 2. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the vacuums motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the upright position. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the vacuum was in the uprigth position, it would cause too much stress on this hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose connects into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the vacuum so you can see it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:
\015\012
\015\012
\015\01254cb5e5.jpg\015\012
\015\012This would also explain why the vacuum works fine when using the attachments, but not on the floors. The attachment hose uses a different suction channel, and when the machine is in the upright position, no suction goes through this hose. If you do find a crack in this hose, you may purchase the Dyson DC-07 & DC-14 Upright Replacement Internal Hose Part # 904219 from our website, GoVacuum (dot) com.
\015\012
\015\012Possible Problem #3. I would suspect that this may not be the case, but if the neither of the solutions above worked, then try this one. Dyson's in general are prone to cloggs. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here's a few pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of these locations:

\015\012
\015\012be63721.jpg\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Possible Problem #4. If none of the above solutions worked for you, try this last one (maybe this should have been first?). The Dyson DC07 models use a clutch mechanism that stops the roller brush from spinning when changed from carpet mode to bare floor mode. This clutch mechanism is a notrious problem as well with Dyson models, in fact they were such a problem that Dyson had to redesign the DC07 model to a non-clutch system. Even if yours is one of the newer ones that don't use a clutch, yours still has a belt inside. You can tell if your model uses a clutch or not by the shape of the roller brush. If your brush is a perfect cylinder shape, yours does NOT have a clutch. To check and see if the clutch or the belt have gone bad, first release the handle on the vacuum as if you were vacuuming carpets. Make sure the machine is set to carpet mode. Now while the handle has been released, turn the machine upside down and see if the brushes are spinning. If the brushes are spinning then turn the vacuum right side up and put the brushes on the floor. Can you still hear the brushes spinning when they hit the carpeting? If yes, then this is not your problem. If the brushes however are NOT spinning, this indicates either your brush roll, clutch, or belt have gone bad.
\015\012
\015\012These are the only things that I can think of that would possibly cause the vacuum to work well in attachment mode, and bad on carpet mode. I would like to try and figure out with you what the issue is, especially so I can be aware of a new problems with Dysons. Please feel free to use the Clarification request to ask me any questions, or if you have any problems. If none of these solutions worked, please let me know so I can try and look further into it.

Hi, There is a high pitched whirring sound coming from lower part of the vacuum. When I tilt it toward me (while standing in the normal vacuuming stance) the sound sometimes lessens for a minute or so. I have tried the following things: -cleaned the two sponge filters -emptied the dirt receptacle -removed the roller and cleaned it -cleaned the brushes -the belt is not ragged and does not seem floppy -checked all of the airways for clogs (including removing the wheel base) Can you help?

Cleaning Filter Hi: I want to clean the filter on the B&D pet hepa vacuum, but can't figure out how to take it out of its housing. I can remove the housing from the actual vacuum, but don't know how to get the filter itself out. It sure does smell of dog, so any help would be appreciated.

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.

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?

My brushes on my hoover streamvac will not rotate. I removed and cleaned assuring that the filter was also cleaned. The only different thing I have done is to insert the upholstery attachment and removed it after use (didn't work so well) suction seemed weak. I am also noticing that there is air being blown out of sides where the dirty water container is. (don't recall that in the past).

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction. We have cleaned both filters, checked for blockage in all hoses & cleaned the beater bar brush. All to no avail. Is it the motor? Or is there a blockage deep in the vac somewhere? We're debating repair versus buying a new one. Hope you can help. Thanks.

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?
