Dyson dc07 suction when upright but no suction when tilted in operate position


Answers :

I had the same issue and solved it easily.My experience is the same as the March 6th response/ When you push your foot onto\015\012the base and then recline the handle, use your toe to gently push the\015\012very front of the base down closer to the carpet. This creates a much\015\012stronger seal and suction and picks up every bit of dirt easily. If i do not do\015\012this extra step the suction is much much less. I tried an experiment\015\012with sand that I poured onto my carpet. Initially, I went over the sand\015\0124 times and the dyson 07 would only pick up 50 percent of the sand. I\015\012then poured more sand onto the carpet, and this time pushed the front\015\012lip down so it was contacting the carpet. This time only two passes\015\012were needed to completely **** up all the sand. Not sure why this is\015\012not in the manual but it really works. Good Luck!
Not sure if this will definitely fix the problem.......but here goes for anyone with the same problem....spoke to Dyson helpdesk today following some online research i did yesterday. The 'internet' view is that there is a design fault with the cyclone chamber of the DC07 and that older models need it replaced. Mine is a 2003 model and Dyson asked me if there was a Number 1 stamped on the back of the cyclone housing near where the air duct connects to the hoover body....there wasn't. They then said they would send out a new cyclone chamber free of charge (I bought my model as reconditioned in 2007 from an approved Dyson dealer, so no Dyson warranty) suggesting they are aware of a problem. Advice on another site by someone who was also sent a new cyclone is that the holes in the early cyclones were too small and got easily clogged. I'm now waiting for my new part and will see if that fixes it.
\015\012very strange though - my old DC01 was a far better model from what I have seen so far of the DC07 - they seem to have gone backwards in design & reliability.
\015\012Very impressed with the service from their helpdesk though - they put other companies to shame with their speed of answering the phone and the ability to actually talk to someone not just a series of automated menus - well done Dyson for that at least - I'll reserve judgement on the DC07!!!.

Suction perfect when in upright position, but when tilted to actually clean there is total loss of suction - cannot see blockage anywhere. Thanks for your help.

Currently my dyson does not work when in the upright position. When I pull the handle back, it will run, but the suction is not very good at all. I tried washing the filter, but that didn't work. Sometimes it works for awhile, but then the problem occurs after the machine has been used for awhile. What do you think the problem is?
