Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

MY vaccuum wont suction or turn at the brush bar. The wand works and I already checked/cleaned all the areas the instrucion manual said to.


Answers :

The DC07 has a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" (or "off") and "carpet" (or "auto"). The roller will turn only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, and still the roller doesn't turn when the handle is lowered, then most likely the belt that you can't see is broken (that belt goes from the motor to the clutch mechanism behind the control knob). It's also possible that the clutch itself has failed.
Belt/clutch replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To see what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement". At least you will see how to remove the clutch cover so you can check on the other belt and confirm if this is the problem or not. Then you have to decide who is to do the job!
\015\012As for loss of suction, check carefully for splits in the short length of clear plastic hose on the underside of the machine (pull it off from the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush-roll end).
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Hoover Windtunnel My Hoover Windtunnel is 3 years old. It worked great until yesterday when it lost all suction. I have followed the manual to trouble shoot any possible clogs and could find none. Then I noticed that when I remove the dirt collection cup and held my hand over the vent the suction is fine and strong. So... I replaced the hepa filter thinking that might be the problem. That didnt' work. The motor runs fine. The suction without the dirt cup inserted is strong. As soon as you insert


Either the hose has a clog, or the inlet down by the belt is clogged. Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then it is clogged. If there is suction, then it has to be clogged down below by the brush roll, check that inlet. There also is ... Vacuums

I bought an old Juki Baby Lock 418 at a garage sale. It will sew for 3 or 4 inches and then seems to be off timing and locks up. I have no instruction manual. Is there a manual available for this old machine? I would prefer a downloadable manual because I already have money invested in the machine which doesn't seem to work. It was suppose to have been gone over at a repair shop before I purchased it and was told that it worked. .

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open.

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 suction wont work. It works for about 2 swipes and then quits. When you stop and restart it does the same. It is only 2 months old!!!!!


Hopefully you don't have a bad impeller on the suction motor. Start with this though: Make sure that you check for obstructions in ALL of the tubes, from the brushes all the way to the bag/canister.

I have bought a shark cordless vacuum sv779z 14 from walmart, at first it worked well, but lately the suction is ok when i switch it on, and them immediately decrease until there is almost no suction. I don't know if its the battery or what i need to replace. When i call the customer care number listed on the instruction manual, they say that they don't have the model number on file and that i should call back in 7 days, which i have done several times, what should i do?

Greetings,\015\012\015\012I would say that you have a slight clog in the hose or in the power nozzle somewhere. The full bag indicator is just a guage that will indicate full when it feels like it's lost suction. Example: If you were ... Vacuums

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI - I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn't wet. Any tips? The manual doesn't help.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old


Sounds like you should do two things:\015\0121- Remove and clean the beater brush of all debris as best you can.
