It's just dirty is all. If you vacuum some liquid, and it happens, then the fine dust Dyson is famous for picking up, can turn to gunk. I have put my tools in the dishwasher (top shelf). It takes time for the soap to work it's magic and dishwasher machines take their time to gently but persistently peel off stuck on gunk. Ya gotta clean the cleaner. You should rince you're filter as often as you clean your toilet. Your machine will last much longer and stay quiet

Hello! I have a Dyson DC41. It is not working, the roller will not roll, it is not tangled with anything. We took any string or hair that was around the roller.


The Dyson has two belts. One is easy to change, the other is difficult as it is between the clutch.

Turn it over and remove the base.

The other possibility is that you have turned the knob which intentionally stops the brush turning to allow cleaning of hardwood, vinyl and ceramic tiled floors.

Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 - Removing a blockage from the cleaner head or...


If your Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 upright vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be from carpets or hard floors, this may be due to a blockage. A blockage could occur if an item too big for the machine has been accidentally vacuumed up.

After turning off and unplugging the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video to locate and remove any obstructions from the cleaner head, internal hose or changeover valve.

Machine does not roll as easily as when new, on flat surfaces, and as well as when cleaning carpets


The bottom plate may have grease and dirt built up on it which causes resistance. I see this on many vacuums brought in for repairs. If you have this it's a good sign your carpet or floors need a thorough cleaning.

What can i do to get my dyson to work on thick carpet not happy


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 is engineered and tested to work across a wide range of hard and carpeted floor types. The soleplate adjusts automatically for optimum performance, and the brush bar can be switched off to protected hard floors, delicate rugs or long pile carpet.

We're keen to take some additional details about your DC41 and the particular carpeting you're having difficulty with - we may have some suggestions that will help. We'll also check your particular DC41 is working as well as it should be.

When you have your DC41 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

How do replace belt on dc41


Ouch The video below shows how to to remove the brush head and how to clean it. I almost think that Dyson didn't ever expect this belt to break. The rest of the disassembly to get to the brush seems to be done by removing torx screws, I have not been able to find a replacement from dyson. A google search shows several sites that sell a replacement belt.

Dyson dc59 troubleshooting


Have you checked the rotary brush at the front. Although IO dont have the same model of dyson I need to clean out the dog hairs that get wrapped around the main rotary brush which is easily got to by turning the catches with a coin under the cleaning head. They should have a little arrow or padlock symbol showing which way to turn them

Dc41animal leaves obvious tracks on beige carpet


Hi Alan, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like all Dyson upright vacuums, DC41 Animal includes a motor-driven rotating brush bar. This includes stiff nylon bristle tufts which sweep into the carpet pile, agitating out dust, grit and stubborn pet hair. This will also have the effect of raising the carpet pile where it's been trodden down from daily use - this is what causes the tracks you've noticed. You can see how DC41's brush bar and cleaner head are engineered to work in the video I've attached.

It is possible to turn off the brush bar using the silver brush control switch next to the red on/off switch. However, the brush bar is an important factor in effective carpet cleaning and we would always recommend vacuuming carpets with the brush bar turned on - with the exception of delicate carpets or rugs.

It does sound like your machine is working correctly, in the way it was designed. I hope this information is useful to you, but if you would like some further advice, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

Plush carpet setting on vaccuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 Animal's cleaner head is designed to self-adjust to different floor types - so you don't need to bend down to adjust a dial. You can see how this feature works in the video below. In addition to this, next to the red on/off switch you'll see a silver brush control switch, which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate carpeting.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of carpeting with the brush bar turned off - we'd suggest checking directly with the manufacturer of your carpets to ensure you're cleaning them correctly.

If you'd like any further advice on using your DC41 Animal, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Jack
