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

My dyson animal sweeper just stopped running

\015 I emptied the canister after i was almost finished sweeping the stairsteps and i put the canister back in place. I turned it on and it ran for a split second then shut off. I went back and made sure the canister was correctly in place and it was. So I checked to see if maybe I tripped a circut and that wasnt the case. So I am at a loss for what has happened to it. I have only had the dyson sweeper for about 6 months or so. Can you help me figure out what went wrong?\015

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. 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. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

My Dyson Root 6 made a loud banging sound, and now its motor emits a strong burning smell every time it's switched on. It runs for a second or two, making a lot of noise, and then stops. (Just bought a new battery for it, too - what a drag...) It's off warranty, and Dyson wants almost as much to fix it as a new one would cost. Is my Root 6 e-waste, or is there anything that can be done for it?

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.


The motor running slower was the motor starting to burn out. The "almost start" is the brushes making intermittent contact with the armature in the motor. \015\012\015\012Your machine needs a new motor Pam. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson animal dc24. It is 7 months old and has stopped working. The hand tool is working fine but when I insert it to engage in normal vaccuming the suction stops.

Same here... I have a DC-15 Animal, it was making a clogged type noise and before I had time to react, it stopped working and I smelled burning rubber. I also noticed that the ball was really hot. It's too late to call support, but I intend on doing so in the morning. I've only had my Dyson for a year, so I'm sure it's covered, however, I have no idea where my receipt is. Did they take care of your issue?
