Dyson Animal Vac has become hard to push

\015 MY DC17 Dyson Animal Vacumm feels like it has become very hard to push, instead of just gliding like it used to. I dont see anything wrong with the vacuum, so I am not sure what the problem is. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Hi there, check that your brush bar is going round if you are having this problem on carpet. When the machine is stood upright, ensure the brush control dial is in the centre position when upright and then moves forward when you release the head.

If this does not solve the problem call us on 1866MYDYSON as we may be able to run through some more checks to help you.

Kind regards

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

My Dyson DC07 has recently been service and was making a clattering noise and very hard to push. We have taken it back and he has changed the clutch mechanism under the base which has solved the clattering, but it is still really hard to push because of the suction. It is even lifting the carpet in one room. Can you tell me what the possible reasons for this could be? One thought we had was that the little rubber wheels on the bottom cover could have worn so the hoover is closer to the floor


On the sole plate you should have 5 little wheels, these are prone to jamming after a while. You should make sure these are not jammed in anyway.\012\012You can release these with a screwdriver, but be careful not to prize too hard as you ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?


Have you adjusted the brush control system. If you look at the link below page 6 will tell you how to adjust. If this is not you vacuum please give the model # of the one you have so I can help you more.\015\012\015\012 ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Dyson animal seems to have an electrical issue that I am unable to pinpoint. Neither the wand nor the floor vac have any suction AT ALL. In fact the vac makes absolutely no sound and you wouldn't even know that it had power to it unless the rollers are turned on, the rollers work just fine. I had this problem start about a month ago and then it just started working again after messing with it for a while, now it has happened again and I am getting a little agitated! Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!
