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

Animal not picking up through main plate

\015 I've got suction through the hose but not the main plate! Can anyone advise?\015

Answers :

Look underneath and you will see a short length of clear plastic hose with spiral wire reinforcing. Very often that hose splits (which allows air in and reduces suction around the brush roller) - you may need to get it off to inspect it thoroughly. To get it off, pull it off at the end closest to the motor and then unscrew it from the end near the brush. If it is split it will need replacing (a new one is not expensive, and it's false economy to try to tape over the old one - except as a very temporary measure).\012
\012If the hose is not split, look for a blockage somewhere.

I have the Dyson animal upright vacuum. It's 2 years old and now it just isn't working as well as it once did. Suction seems to be lacking - it's not picking up pet hair or much else from the carpet. I have to go over the spot for a few minutes and still, the hair isn't picked up.


You might want to check and see if your cyclones are plugged with hair. this can happen and there is a great site to disassemble and clean the cyclone here: http://www.exonotes.com/content/node/4 ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested.\015\012Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Hi. We've got a Dyson DC17 "Animal". It's clogged, and we are unable to separate the purple cyclone cap from the main cyclone body to get to the problem. We've heard of 4 torx screws that take some interesting tactics to access. I've been through this thing with a flashlight, and torx tools for a protracted period, and even after removing the torx screws was unable to ultimately separate the two pieces (main body from purple cap assembly). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx -

My Dyson Animal is not picking up very well in the drive position. With the hose the pick up is still very good. I have had it for 2 yrs now with very little problems. I have cleaned out all areas etc pipes, the brush underneath and cant find any blockages. The noise of the dyson is the same as usual. Could you tell me if there is a part that it sounds like it needs?

When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to.
