did you ever get a response? I have the same problem

my dyson spin brushes work but then stop working 2 seconds later. belt sounds like its still together, i took the brushes off and cleaned them but its still doing it.. what should i do?

My Dyson Animal D17 shuts down when you are using it. Then it won't start up for 15 mins or so. My husband and I took it apart cleaned, checked for clogs, blew out the bags section with a air hoise. None of this works.

My Dyson Animal D17 works for 15-30 seconds and then the brushes just stop. I set it upright then pull back down to vacuum and it works again for 15-30 seconds and then stops. Does that sound like yours. Seems to me this vacuum is worthless........

my dyson is just not switching on it was working then just stopped and hasnt started again

ive only had it for five years isnt it spose to be a good product

My Dyson DC04 has suddenly stopped working. How do you get to the motor to check it?

my Dyson has so much suction that you can't move it on our new carpet with higher pile. I wish I knew how to adjust it so it would work. We have two dogs (one sheds enough for two)and I really need it.

Can anyone tell me how to repair the small lower internal hose?? I have a rip in mine and do not want to order a new one until I know that I am able to replace it properly. I have found videos and ifo for every other part and hose but this particular one! Please help me!!!

My Dyson DC07 has a burning motor smell and it lost some suction. What should I do? It is 6 years old so I want to know if it worth it to fix it or I should be thinking to buy a new one.

my Dyson Origin I have had for only a year and a half - I have done all the things in this video there are no blockages but the suction is still rubbish - it was extremely good when I first got it but now it's rubbish :( what else could be affecting the suction if there are no blockages?

Thank you for your video, you just helped me fix my Dyson Animal. It wasn't sucking. The gray pipe under where the hose is was so filled with stuff and blocked. Cleaned it all out works like a charm. Thank you once again!!! I love this vacuum.

I asked how to repair a dyson animal dc17, was unable to get an answer, so now i'm going to purchase another brand. only used this one a few times, it's total junk!!!

Thank you! I thought I had killed my beloved Dyson, and in minutes it was back to perfection.

my dyson quitworking does not turn on help

I have a dyson dc01 the sweeper head wont lock ( hold down) I have to hold it down with my foot to push it down on the carpet. How can I fix it? Should mention fan belt and sweeper brush have been replaced.

How do you fix a broken handle. The plastic broke off at the base of the handle and all it does if flop all over. I can't see any replacement part that will fix this because it is part of the main base. This seems like a manufacturing defect.

How do I open up a dyson dc29 to repair the cable rewind. Any help appreciated. Thanks


My husband bought me the Dyson v8 a year ago. There was a short in the cord where you charge it. I got on the web site to ask for assistance. They kept telling me to clean the filters ( which I had done ). I found an address in the box to return it for the repair. I mailed it which cost over $18 to send. About a week later, it was sent back to me. It had been refused by the company, not even opened !!!! I will NEVER purchase another. The poorest service I have ever had !!!!!!!
