Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Lost suction. When up right there is suction but when I put it down to clean carpet no suction


Answers :

Hello,

There are several things that this could be. Probably the \015\012most common problem that we see when customers come in with this problem\015\012 is actually a fairly simple problem to fix. Here are just a few things \015\012that this could be.

The fist possible problem is a VERY common \015\012problem actually.

Possible Problem \015\012#1. The first problem is extremely common. In fact, we probably see \015\012between 2-3 of these problems every week. It mostly happens after people\015\012 take the bottom plate off the vacuum in order to clean the roller \015\012brush. What happens is when they reinstall \015\012the bottom plate, they put it on on incorrectly. It's actually very easy\015\012 to do. When the bottom plate (soleplate) is installed wrong, there will\015\012 be a gap between the bottom plate, and the agitator housing, or the \015\012purple tray the roller brush sits in. This will cause the soleplate to \015\012be a few inches higher off the ground then it should be, preventing the \015\012brushes from even hitting the carpet. This makes it seem to the user \015\012that vacuum has lost suction power because without the brushes \015\012hitting the \015\012carpet, the machine will not pick up very well on floors, but when they \015\012use the attachment hose there's plenty of suction power.

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install \015\012the bottom \015\012plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:

Here's\015\012\015\012 another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:

I\015\012 would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the \015\012customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed \015\012correctly, move on to the second possible problem.

Possible \015\012Problem # 2. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is \015\012facing upwards. I found the easiest \015\012way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the \015\012left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible \015\012transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This \015\012hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in \015\012the reclined position. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models \015\012came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the vacuum was\015\012 in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and\015\012 cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the \015\012hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if \015\012you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just \015\012remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come \015\012right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture \015\012of where the hose usually cracks:


54cb5e5.jpg
This\015\012\015\012 would also explain why the vacuum works fine when using the \015\012attachments, but not on the floors. The attachment hose uses a different\015\012 suction channel, and when the machine is in the upright position, no \015\012suction goes through this hose. If you do find a crack in this hose, the\015\012 this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on \015\012our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. I would \015\012suspect that this may not be the problem, but if neither of the solutions above worked, then try this\015\012 one. Dyson's \015\012in general are prone to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout \015\012the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes \015\012becoming clogged at these points. Here are pictures of how and where to \015\012check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of \015\012these locations:

If\015\012\015\012 you are getting suction power from the hose, but the vacuum still \015\012doesn't pick up on the floors, I think that these solutions should fix your problem. If\015\012 you just \015\012replaced the clutch mechanism, the roller brush should be fine, but turn\015\012 the vacuum over on it's side and make sure that the roller brush is \015\012actually spinning while it's on carpet mode. If none of these problems \015\012fixed your Dyson, please use the Clarification Request, or leave another\015\012 comment here on the Fixya repair page, and I'll be happy to further \015\012diagnosis the vacuum cleaner with you.

Lost suction my DCO7 lost suction in the hose I started taking it apart and cleaning it and looking for clogs (probably more than I should have) and when I put it back together it has awesome suction in the hose but no suction in the base.

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet
