Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Vaccumed up water with Dyson DC17. Turbo? is now stopped up

\015 I know you are not supposed to vacuum up water for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, I did vacuum up enough water to cause a problem. The vacuum has lost suction and the Hepa filter now stops up very quickly instead. I looked down inside the ports of the turbo and it is stopped up with pet hair and lint. I took it outside and tried blowing it out using a leaf blower. That seemed to blow out lots of stuff but I don't think I got all the matted up debris out. Is there a way to properly I "clean" the turbo part of the vacuum now to restore its performance?\015

Answers :

You cannot clean out the ports in the turbo. I tried and tried! Broke down and took it in. Needed a whole new vortex/canister assembly. There was a known warranty issue about the gasket at the bottom of the canister causing issues with clogs in the turbo/vortex area. Of course mine was out of warranty; also got a new HEPA filter; about $100. This is where I took it and they were very knowledgable about Dyson's.

Hello, I have a Hoover 3200 Turbo Power vaccum. while the motor appears to be working fine the vaccum no longer picks up the dirt. I turned the vaccum upside down and the belt appears to be broken. would a broken belt stop the pick up, there appears to be no suction. This vaccum is approximately 10 years old. is it worth fixing? I live in Virginia Beach Va, where would I take the vaccum for repair? my zip code is 23456- Thanks Cleta Goode

I have a dyson animal dc24. It is 7 months old and has stopped working. The hand tool is working fine but when I insert it to engage in normal vaccuming the suction stops. I can hear a strange air sound. Also the brush is spinning but it is not picking up. I have taken it apart and checked for a clog but I don't see one. Any advice?

I'm trying to figure out which dyson vacuum is better, the DC14 or DC17. from what i read, the DC17 is the newer model of the DC14, the DC17 added an extra motor for the brush, but from the dyson site, the DC17 has less suction power. it went from 250AW (dc14) to 220AW (dc17). is that a significant difference that i should be worried about?


Hi,DC17 is much better than DC14. I always believe User's review are much better than what Features Company usually Displays.Read :-http://www.epinions.com/review/Dyson_DC17_Animal_Vacuum/content_404790546052 ... Vacuums

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -
