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

Low suction The beater bar still spins fine, but the suction seems low. I have cleaned all of the filters, but it is still too low to spin a lot of the attachments.


Answers :

Hi Megan,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. If it doesn't seem to be picking up as well as usual, you may have a blockage somewhere in the machine. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=954&product=DC17-ANIMAL

Although I note you've already cleaned the filter, please see the video below to check you've done it correctly. In normal use, the filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months in cold water. Don't use detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for it to dry completely before replacing it.

This should resolve your issue, but if you need any further assistance, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766, or email [email protected] so we can help.

Kind regards,

Jack

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

The vacuum has suction but the floor attachment does not. I have cleaned the clogs from the attachments and it still has no suction. What is wrong?

Black & Decker Black Decker Bagless Canister Pet VacVacuum

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
