Having problems with your Dyson Vacuums ?

Dirt and crumbs are shooting back out when vacuuming


Answers :

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. You dont actually say which model you have but i am going to take an educated guess that you have an older style upright dyson. I suspect that you have a brocken belt and or a blockage. The blockage is likely to be very close to the brush and should be removable with long nosed pliers or similar. If it is a belt then you will just have to purchase a new one. Feel free to shoot me an email if you need more information or if you need parts. Hope this helps!

It has no suction. It was fine yesterday. I washed the dirt container and the filter, let it dry and put it back in the vacuum. Today my vacuum isnt picking up any dirt and has no suction. When I took the hose out of the back, it started blowing dust and dirt out but still no suction.

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet


This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.\015 ... Vacuums

... Eureka 4718AVZ LightForce 300 Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner model #116.34720. The problem I am having is that if you are rolling the vacuum around, the base will drop without pressing on the handle release pedal. This often results in a bunch of dirt being dumped back out. The manual doesn't show anything about adjusting the handle release pedal so it holds the handle and base in an upright position better. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

... Hoover Platinum LiNX Cordless Stick Vacuum

Vacuum sucks up dirt and expells it back onto the carpet as I am using it. I have replaced the bag and took the bottom off to clean - even cleaned up the area where the dirt should go to make sure it was not clogged.
