Having problems with your Dyson DC11 All Floors Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum ?

The dirt is going into the filter

\015 Instead of going into the see through dirt container, most of the dirt/hair etc. is going directly into the filter and jamming up the machine. My vaccum has wrorked great for 5 years up until now. I washed the filter but the same problem is happening.\015

Answers :

As the air gets sucked through the vacuum cleaner, the dirt is basically thrown out into the container by the spinning air. If the speed that the air is travelling through gets too low, this stops happening and instead it gets sucked through into the filters.

There could be a number of reasons that the air flow has slowed. The most likely is the filters have become blocked over time. Even with regular washing, after 5 years they will not be as efficient as when they were new. I would suggest replacing them (the foam filter and HEPA filter if you have one.)

I would also check that there are no blockages in the main hose, and also give all the component a good banging/brushing to make sure they are nice and clean.

hope this helps,

Matt

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

Hi, I have a cleanview bagless model# 3576-2 and my belt keeps breaking (it seems like one of the rings it should wrap around is missing) right now I have been wrapping it around the brush and a metal rod.

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

It's not the filter that's the problem.  Air should go first to the cyclones, then to the filter, so the filter catches only those finest dust particles that are not trapped in the cyclones.  The most likely cause of the problem is that the ...

Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter, it seems that some of the dirt suctioned is actually being pulled into the filter intead of the canister


One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
