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

Dyson animal We bought a Dyson Animal from Sears a few years ago along with a service contract. We took it each year to be serviced. One year I took it because it lost it's suction. They sent it to the factory, but it came back still not working right. We did the same procedure over ands over many times than I can remember. I now have the cleaner in my garage and am using my old vacuum because I just can't seem to get anywhere with Sears. Please help me. We paid almost $600.00 and now it can't b


Answers :

As someone who works for Sears, let me just say right now.. The service contract you bought sucks.. and does not really do anything for you. it was just a wast of money ( they have a new one now.. thats so much better because you get your money back in full on a gift card but anyways) When you buy a dyson from any place you really have no need for that contract, since sears CANT touch your dyson. Your really better off calling Dyson up and talking to them yourself, i know you said sears sent it out.. but wait heres a shocker.. Sometimes they never *really* send anything out to be fixed.. if it does not bring them in money, they don't care.. and then they can get you to buy a *new* vacuum from them with that same S.C. that is of no use!\015\012
\015\012Sorry i cant help with your problem, but just wanted to give you a little insight on how Sears works since K mart bought them. 
Check the cylinder they get clogged up if they are not kept clean wash it out if necessary

I need to replace the brushbaron my DC17 Animal model Dyson. It's almost four years old. I can't find the correct part number on the Dyson Website and I can't seem to find a Dyson repair center in Albuquerque, NM. What are my alternatives?

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward. Took it to a technician and he said he could find nothing wrong. He had only short nap carpet for test. Works fine on short nap, if the carpet nap has any lenght to it like shag, the dyson severly nose dives. It's like the nose is sucked into the carpet.

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again. I tried the clutch reset suggestion (turn it on its side and turn the carpet/bare floor switch slowly back and

My Dyson Animal is not picking up very well in the drive position. With the hose the pick up is still very good. I have had it for 2 yrs now with very little problems. I have cleaned out all areas etc pipes, the brush underneath and cant find any blockages. The noise of the dyson is the same as usual. Could you tell me if there is a part that it sounds like it needs?

Same here... I have a DC-15 Animal, it was making a clogged type noise and before I had time to react, it stopped working and I smelled burning rubber. I also noticed that the ball was really hot. It's too late to call support, but I intend on doing so in the morning. I've only had my Dyson for a year, so I'm sure it's covered, however, I have no idea where my receipt is.
