Having problems with your Dyson DC35 Handheld Vacuum ?

Surging/Pulsing when in contact with floor

\015 I have had my dyson DC35 for about 6 months now with now problems. I use it on my hard wood kitchen floors each night. The last couple of weeks I have noticed it really not doing its job, leaving debris behind and 'surging', hard to explain but it seems to be 'pulsing' when in contact with the floor. If I lift the whole thing of the floor, no surging. If I take the head off and just use the stick end, no problem. Its when the head is on and in contact with the floor that theres a problem. The head has been cleaned of hair/string, etc and there are no obstacles stuck in the neck. Any suggestions?\015

Hi Cathy, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC35 Animal will make a pulsing sound to indicate that something is blocking the airflow through the machine. Although I note you've already checked for this, the issues you've described strongly suggest a blockage inside the motorised floor tool that you may have missed. This would also explain the loss of performance you've noticed.

In this instance I would encourage you to get in touch with our experts directly so we can walk you through some troubleshooting checks, as we should be able to resolve this right over the phone. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum... Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

Hoover SteamVac Plus 1200 upright hot water extractor Water/carpet cleaner applying o.k. Suction on the "floor" does not work. Suction on the hand tool works somewhat, but water is not collecting in the bucket. There is suction coming from the floor but water is not going into the bucket. It does not appear to be clogged because I can feel with my hand that air is flowing from the floor. The water is not being sucked into the bucket.

I have a Harmony vacuum and need it only for bare floors. The attachment I have seems to be too rough on the floors. I just need a simple attachment with soft bristles for a bare floor that will fit this vacuum.

My Hoover vacuum is not vacuuming the carpets or floors. When I release the tube to use the smaller end the suction works perfect. So i believe the problem is in the rods on the floor or in the part that vacuums the floor! Can you tell me how to fix it , or where can I take it to get it fixed? thanks


Ive just had the exact same problem. In the very back lower portion of the vacuum You will need to take it apart. I guarantee there is a clog. You might also check your belts to make sure they are still on track. ... Hoover Vacuums

I have a new Euro-Pro shark model S3101. Used it one time and while I was doing my tile floor in my kitchen I reached under a cabnet to clean and hit the floor kick kind of hard and broke the head off of the shark. I have only the T shaped end on the shark now with the cleaning head broken off and looks unrepairable. I did kind of hit the floor kick hard but the plastic broke like glass. Can I put a new head on the remaining piece or is it repairable? thanks Angie

I just got this euro pro shark steam mop. I dont have a manual for it so i dont know much about it. I put water in it and it heats up but when you start to use it. It makes a gurgling kind of sound and steam comes out, but not very much i dont think and on the floor you can't hardly tell where you went over the floor at cuz it's not very wet at all. So is it suppose to make a gurgling sound and should'nt the floor be alittle wetter?
