Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Clogged vortex holes
\015 I own a Dyson asthma and allergy machine. Works okay, but definitely not as well as when I first got it. I have cleaned my filter on a regular basis which helps slightly with suction. As I was cleaning my machine today from top to bottom in an effort to figure out the problem, I noticed there are six holes in the top of the cylcone chamber of which 4 were plugged with what seems to be balls of hair! I have tried everything from rinsing with water to unscrewing the machine in an effort to get this **** out. The screws are apparently for looks or just to throw you frustration level into high gear. Is there anyway to get into this chamber and clean my machine for good?\015
I had these same issues. It came down to my husband beating the **** out of it several times. He'd take the canister apart, pound it on the ground, use a hair dryer to blow out as much as we could, a hanger down the top to pull out any hair we could grab. Then I'd use it -- it definitely loosened up some stuff. He'd pounded on it again and more stuff came loose. Don't know if it's fixed, but it's got it's suction back. Now I have have hose suction issues.
\015\012It felt good to beat on it a bit.....

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water

My Dyson just stopped sucking up dirt. I have checked all the obvious things like clogs and filters.

Is this valve malfunctioning, or is it working correctly because something else is malfunctioning?

I noticed the Roomba's brushes were not sweeping, or turning so they could sweep. There was a new sound coming from the machine, the sound of grinding nylon! Upon inspection, I determined the problem to be a heat melted gear support hole. The hole was no longer round but oblong. You could see a ridge of plastic around this hole. So melting I believe was the culprit. The gear that uses that hole was then able to tilt to one side, thereby allowing the gear to disengage from the drive train. I

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine.

That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.
