Dyson DC11 All Floors Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum\015 The suction on my Dyson is very powerful, but all of the dirt and hairs are getting trapped on top of the filter. I washed the old filter, but the problem continued. A replacement filter failed to solve the problem. All of the seals seem sound. Can anyone tell me how this is happening (it would seem impossible) and what I can do to rectify it?Thanks in advance,Pete\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Your vacuum`s roller is clogged
To check your machine`s roller, you need to unplug or turn off the vacuum first and then turn the vacuum upside down and open it. Now that you can see the roller of your vacuum, you can pull out the dog hair or the dirt that accumulated in the roller.
If your Dyson Ball Animal vacuum no longer sucks up dirt, dust, and debris when using the nozzle and its attachments, there may be a clog in the vacuum`s nozzle. Unplug the vacuum and use the Dyson Ball Animal Hose Replacement Guide to remove the vacuum`s hose and check for clogs at the base of the hose.
The dirt travels from the cleaner head into the wand and then into the clear bin, cyclone and our filtration system. There is a red lever to release the bin into a receptacle.
If your vacuum is leaving dirt behind, or even spitting dirt back out while cleaning, it`s usually due to a blockage. It sounds like you`re experiencing this from the base of your machine, so we would suggest having a look at this video here, on removing blockage from the cleanerhead.
Dyson vacuums come with an a range of accessories, so users are equipped with the right tools for every cleaning need. The Dyson Hair Screw Tool transforms your cord-free stick vacuum into a handheld and is effective on both hard floors and soft furnishings and can remove embedded pet hair and dander, fast.
The most common cause of loss of suction is that the filters have become blocked. They may require cleaning or replacing. Another cause could be that the vacuum cleaner hose is blocked.
Clean the right way
It`s essential to remove all the dust and dirt from your floors before moppng to achieve a barefoot and genuinely clean floor. Dyson vacuums are engineered to provide up to 230AW of powerful suction to remove all the dust in your homes.
Bagless vacuum cleaners use filters to trap dirt and debris in a dirt cup or chamber that can then be emptied.
Bagless vacuums, as the name suggests, don`t use a replaceable bag that collects the dust and dirt from the surface. A bagless vacuum cleaning machine is compact and uses a dust cup or chamber to store the dust and dirt.
What`s happening with your vacuum cleaner is that a clog has built up and debris being agitated by the roller is spitting out or stirring up dust without sucking it in.
Simple: the bag or canister is full and the vacuum has nowhere to store the dust it is collecting. Empty the canister or bag. If that doesn`t fix it, the vacuum filter needs to be cleaned or changed.
Check the LED light to determine the battery level. A solid blue light indicates that the machine is in normal operating mode. A flashing blue light indicates that there is no power, and the battery needs to be charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours.
A blockage in the machine, causing a reduction in airflow. A blockage in the head, causing it to stutter in use. An issue with the electrical pins, either in the wand or floor tool.
Brush or comb your hair often and thoroughly, but only in one area of the house and if you want to make your life even easier, do it in an uncarpeted area. Sweep, Swiffer,—vacuum if you must, but you`ll want to use any part of the vacuum that is not the brush roller—this floor after each time.

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn’t use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don’t think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can’t see why it’s happen
Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn’t have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c
If the dirt being vacuumed is not going into the dirt cup, then it must be just stuck in the hose and evenually will clog up. Check the hose and see it there is a clog in it, otherwise you have a years warranty on a new vacuum, take it into a warranty shop and have it checked out, take proof of purchase with you.
Dirt and hairs not going into cylinder
It’s not the filter that’s the problem. Air should go first to the cyclones, then to the filter, so the filter catches only those finest dust particles that are not trapped in the cyclones. The most likely cause of the problem is that the cyclone pack is not properly seated, with the result that at least some of the dirt-bearing air is going directly to the filter rather than passing through the cyclones first.
Hoover Mach 3 (Fusion): Dirt Will not enter dirt cup
There is a filter in the top over where the dirt canister clips in, and one under the dirt cannister by the motor. Sometimes removing and cleaning will help if you have not tried it already.
Bissell bagless sweeper sucks up dirt but will not put dirt in the canister cup. It will pickup until it clogs, then it will stop picking up dirt. It will really hold quite a bit of dirt before it stops completely up. Thanks for any help.
I had the same problem, called Bissell over 10 times! They send me 3 plastic inserts for the dirt chamber, not the problem. I solved it by throwing the Bissell away and buying a Eureka bagged vacuum, no more problems.
Dirt finder I have a Hoover U6439-900. After the cleaner was used a few times, the dirt finder light cycles between green and red on the regular setting and will not go to green. On the sensitive setting, the red light stays on most of the time. I have tried to run the cleaner to remove any dirt but have not solved the problem.
The sensor may be bad, or it may be coated over with dirt. Re,ove the hose at the back of the vacuum, the head of the sensor is down inside that opening, reach in there and clean it off and see it that corrects the problem, if not replace the sensor.
Bissell powertrak revolution dirt not going into cup
If the unit is not blocked between pickup and filter have a good look at the filter to see if air is passing through it—paper throwaway or foam filter the can be washed?
The ones that can be washed etc will have instructions right on them.
Dc17 -too much pet hair around the belt gears
I was having the same trouble and it was driving me nuts. I tried cleaning and it did not work. Then I tore the brush assembly off and looked up into where the little tooth gear is. I saw something that did not look right. There was a silver roller bearing laying down below the assembly. I got some tweezers and found it was not attached to any thing. I then cleaned out the pet hair and saw a spot where this roller goes that takes the slack out of the brush. It is a pain and takes alot of trying with pliers and prodding with a screw driver, but I got the roller back where it goes. It does not attach very solidly, but I put every thing back together and it works great so far. It is a definite design flaw. I found that you have to keep the main unit on the floor when the brush is running. Do not do stairs or pick it up and do couch cushions, that is when the bearing breaks loose. Dyson needs to figure out a better design for this. I was lucky to figure it out, but it is very hard to get to. Again never pick up the unit when the brushes are engaged.
