Dyson DC11 All Floors Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
36 cyclones accelerate air to 180mph, generating over 100,000 g-force to fling microscopic particles out of the airflow. The Dyson Cinetic™ tips oscillate at up to 5000Hz, so the tiny particles can`t clog them, and the vacuum maintains constant, powerful suction.
This is an indication of how good the vacuum cleaner is to clean – i.e. the work to be done. The suction power is measured in Watt (W) and is typically between 250 W and 450 W for machines with 1 motor.
While you might feel that this is the reason their products are expensive, you`re highly mistaken. This investment was mainly to accommodate a centre for their 1,200 employees, 22 laboratories, prototyping space, and areas for collaborative work.

This fixed mine right up.
It was not working well at ALL, so i opened it up, cleaned it all, and now it’s sucking like it was new.
If your DC08 doesn’t seem to be picking up as well as usual, there may be a blockage in the machine. The filter may also need a wash.
The easiest way to locate and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
In normal use, the filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

Looks like a common fault with this particular model judging by the number of complaints on the web.
.Take it to your local vacuum repair shop and they should be able to fix it for a nominal fee.
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
