Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Cyclone action is not working

\015 My dyson is not picking up all of the dirt and I notice that the dirt it does pick up is not spinning in the bin. What should I do to fix it?\015

Answers :

Hello,

When the Cyclone Assembly on the Dyson is not spinning around, it usually means that you are loosing suction somewhere. This can either be caused by a clog, suction leak, or dirty filters. I will give \015\012you detailed step by step instructions along with pictures on how you \015\012can \015\012diagnose this.


Possible Problem # 1. Turn the \015\012vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I \015\012found the \015\012easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. \015\012On the \015\012left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible \015\012transparent \015\012hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose \015\012actually \015\012has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the vacuuming position with the handle down. \015\012When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't \015\012make this \015\012hose long enough, so when the handle was in the reclined position, it \015\012would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually \015\012crack, usually \015\012right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. \015\012Examine your \015\012hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to\015\012 you may \015\012just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily \015\012come right \015\012out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of \015\012where the hose \015\012usually cracks:

If you do \015\012find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a\015\012 direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. Dyson's in general are prone \015\012to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner \015\012that were added \015\012there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here are\015\012 pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the \015\012suction \015\012port covers at both of these locations:

Possible Problem # 4. The Dyson DC07 has two filters on the vacuum. The first filer is the pre-motor filter. This filter is located on the right side (if you're standing in front of the vacuum) underneath of the of the cyclone assembly. There is a filter catch that holds the filter and the filter bracket in place. Simply press the filter latch, and remove the plastic circular part that comes off. In side of this plastic part you'll find the pre-motor filter. This filter is washable, but if it hasn't been washed recently, this could be the source of your suction loss. Here's what a clean pre-motor filter looks like, compared to a dirty filter:

The second filter in your Dyson is the HEPA filter. The HEPA filter is also known as the post-motor filter, or it's located after the motor. This filter typically doesn't have any effect on the suction, but you should periodically open it up and take a look at it. Despite the bogus claim of a Lifetime HEPA Filter. As you can see in the picture below, this filter gets filthy. When this filter is this dirty, it prevents the air flowing through the filter, which causes the air to look for other ways to escape, causing the dirty air to escape unfiltered. A dirty filter can also take away from the life of the motor. Here's how you can access the HEPA filter.

First remove the dust bin completely from the vacuum cleaner. Take a flat head screw driver, and right where the dust bin was sitting you'll see a groove. Put the flat head screw driver, and pry this groove off. Here's a picture of that: de80f32.jpg

Also on both the left and the right side, there are two more grooves that need to loosened before the filter can be removed:

After loosening three grooves, one on the front, left and right sides, the HEPA Filter cover can be removed. Inspect the filter to see if it's dirty. Here's a look at what a dirty filter looks like compared to a brand new filter:

I'm pretty sure that one of these solutions will help you with your loss of suction, and the cyclone assembly not spinning.

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems.

The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again.
