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

Cleaning! To clean the cyclonic cone Dyson say to use can-air? that may be ok for computers but not to blow out the dirt and dust from the cone in question. Someone else here suggested to use a real compressor! Well dahhh I knew that! Should I do the blowing in the living room? or may be in the bathroom? Seriously what I need is an assy. drawing to take it apart and washing it Any ideas where I can get one? Thank you John

Hi, we realy love our Dyson, but get frustrated when it gets clogged with pet fur (2 cats and 2 dogs). This takes a little effort but what we ended up doing was taking the vacuum apart into its major components and alternately blowing it out, filter too, with an air compressor and reaching down into the holes in the main suction compartment with "mechanical fingers" and pulling out clumps of the traped fur. Like I said it too a bit of effort to get it all out, trust me even when you think you have it all check again, but your efforts will be greatly rewarded, you will end up with a vaccuum that "really sucks!!!" (pardon the pun). Hope this helps.
Hiya... I would follow the suggestions you have been given already.. it is a bad idea to wash it..
\015\012
\015\0121..You are not guaranteed to get all the dirt from the places you cant reach.
\015\012
\015\0122. If you get it it wet chances are it will cake on even worse in the places you cant reach.
\015\012
\015\0123. If it,s not too bad .. would use a blower to not only blow through .. but another hoover to **** out, the loose debris as you're going .. and use a long thin stiff brush etc... and no. I would suggest you dont do it in the house..lol
\015\012
\015\0124. If its so bad that the cone is not serviceable.. can get a replacement UK price for around£30.. or direct from dyson!
\015\012
\015\012Normally some Dyson parts can be a bit tricky to take apart, and damage will occur!
\015\012
\015\012Hope its useful!

My Miele s558 Silver moon vacuum just stops suddenly while vacuuming. I can start it again using the button on the handle of the hose. It is erratic, doesn't SEEM to be due to overheating. I read online that this may mean it need a new starter switch. What do you think?

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?
