Dc17 Animal - doesn't roll backwards smoothly, it hops or bounces when on carpet

\015 With each pass the Dyson moves foward without issue but on the return or Pull motion it skips, hops or bounces. This happens only on carpet and not in all sections of carpet which is really strange. I have checked and nothing is is blocking suction. It is very strange. \015\012\015

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.

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

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.

I don't feel that the vac is close enough to the carpet anymore .. it's almost like I have to push the head down so it reached the carpet to roll the brush through it ... I've tried a friends vac and it shows nicely that you've just vacuumed the carpet .. heavy traffic areas are not getting pulled back up .. I have the short shag type carpet .. Thanks


Consider disassembling and cleaning your unit. Sometimes dirt and grit will build up, and when wiped away allow the moving parts to function better.
