Having problems with your Dyson Vacuums ?

Hi, I have a DC01. When using the extension tools there is little suction. How can I check or improve this?

Answers :

If there is little suction using the tools, then there is also little suction at the powerhead.
\015\0121. Check the filters. If dirty, they need replaced. The company recommends replacing them every three months, but it does depend on use.
\015\0122. Detach hose from powerhead and tank. Check opening in the tank for clogs. Clear if necessary.
\015\0123. Check ends of hose for clog. If none are visible, hold one end up, drop a coin in, lift end of hose so the coin should drop through. If it doesn't, a clog is present. This can be removed by using a broom handle to push it back out.

The suction is good, but it can't pick up most of the stuff on the floor. The hand held hose works very well, but it doesn't even pick up little fuzzies reliably when I push it along. And, the suction is too hard I think because it used to push easily and now I have to push really hard, even on flat carpet.

Check entire length of hose, including the piece in the power head, for clogs. Simply drop a marble in one end and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't, then the hose is clogged somewhere. ... Dyson DCO7 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
