My dyson seems to have lost its suction therefore is not picking up anything yet i have found that when my dyson is standing upright it has a little more suction but nothing like how it use to work. This has only happend in the last 2 weeks. I sanded a floor & though the sander picked up majority of the dust i did use the dyson to pick up the excess and it is since then that my dyson has not been working to its full potential.

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!
I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was f ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
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?

My Dyson DC17 has lost suction on the wand and is not picking up dirt as it should. I have taken the small part at bottom of the machine off to see if there is a blockage--none that I can see. The flexible tube on wand is very tight and won't extend very much. Dyson sent me a new cyclonic part in April but the machine still doesn't seem to be working properly. My serial number is 260-us-d11545. Is there somewhere I can take my Dyson to get it fixed. I'm very frustrated with it. Thank you.

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a
Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested.\015\012Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My dyson will not pick up from the floor. it will pick up from the extension wand but not off of the floor where the main vacuuming is done
Usually this is from a clogged pipe in the vacuum and filters need to be cleaned. Most vacuums need a phillips screwdriver or a torks driver. Looks like a star. Underneath the vacuum where the rolling brush is at, remove the srews to access the the r ... Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a 4 year old pink dyson that I've loved until recently. It's always been easy to unclog when it wasen't picking up-now it seems maybe a seal problem has occured. The suction is making a funny noise and just not picking barely anything up. I'm getting talked into an expensive Oreck--please help!
\015\012Thanks for your response.First: (This is most likely as you say the suction is making a funny noise.) The DC07 has a short length of clear plastic hose on the underside of the machine. Check this very carefully for splits (pull it ... Vacuums

I have the Dyson animal upright vacuum. It's 2 years old and now it just isn't working as well as it once did. Suction seems to be lacking - it's not picking up pet hair or much else from the carpet. I have to go over the spot for a few minutes and still, the hair isn't picked up.
You might want to check and see if your cyclones are plugged with hair. this can happen and there is a great site to disassemble and clean the cyclone here: http://www.exonotes.com/content/node/4 ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a dyson dc21. All the sudden the hose is hardly suctioning up anything. If I take the canaster off, the top air hole suctions extrememly well, but when I place that canister back on, the suction is not going thru the hose and picking anything up. I have squeezed the hose, I feel no air leaking and do not feel any blockages...what could be wrong. It worked fine the other day and today, it won't pick up a piece of lint!

I have a DC07 which is not picking up very well. I've cleaned the pre motor filter, was not aware of the post motor and will check. However, do the Dyson brush rollers wear to the point of not picking up things from carpet?
Hi The filter is only part of the cleaning process with a Dyson.\012\012I would suggest you get a 2 p peice and unscrew the plastic screws on the base. You will likely find that this area has clogged up. Clean this area out and put solepl ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
