Dyson Cylinder - Is there an adapter to use different cleaner heads / brushes?
Hello together, first of all i hope you understand my problem/questtion :) Since i am not an native english speaker, I prbably dont use allways the exact terms. I own an old Dysen, DC08 which i really like. Unfortunately, the cleaner head in worn, so I cant use the origianl one anymore. But i got two other cleaner heads from a newer version (think it is DC29) and from an even older version (DCxx). Are there adapters, so I can use for example the cleaner head form DC29 with my cleaner DC08?Thanks in advance for every answerThomas
DC40 Extension Hose WANTED
Dyson dc40I’m looking for an accessory hose to put on the wand as a tool. I do not need a replacement hose.The wand is very unwieldy and I have to hoist it over my shoulder to use the cleaning tools. A hose that attaches to the tool end of the wand may solve that problem. Or a hose from another model that may serve the purpose.Elizabeth JonesSt George, Utah (Moderation edit - Sensitive data removed/Tags Added)
Filter light even with a replacement filter. V10. Help!
The filter light on my vacuum kept flashing, so I ordered a new filter - it’s an Amazon knock off, but all the reviews said that it worked just fine. I just put it in and the same thing is happening… My vacuum also appears to not really be sucking anything up, Everything seems to be blowing out of and around it - I got it about a year ago but I don’t use it that much so I don’t think I could’ve broke it. I don’t know what to do!
Animal 3 wand handle vs DC07
I had a Dyson all floors DC07 and when I wanted to use the wand to vacuum hard floors it would flip around and there would be a handle to use. My new Dyson animal 3 does not seem to do this and when I try to vacuum hard floors have to practically hold on to hose. It doesn’t seem right. Is there a handle part or attachment that I don’t have? Or an extension to the wand so I’m not bending over so far to vacuum hard floors? Thanks. (Moderation Edit - Tags Added/Title Updated)
Upright vacuum DC55 - Real world problems
i had a DC05 which gave 15 years reliable service, and was only retired when an enthusiastic teenager dropped it down the stairs and the handle snapped off. Even then it briefly served as a dust extractor for a table saw. No complaints. It made me a Dyson advocate, for life I thought.To replace it, only another Dyson was considered.A DC55 seemed the logical choice in 2018.Cleaning power - awesome, as you’d expect.👍long-term useability, not so much. 😪Has anyone else found the following niggles, or di get a dud?sliding the red ‘wand’ back into the handle - unreliable. sometimes it does not want to slot in. frustrating opening the bottom of the dust bin with the button on top. after 6 months, just fails. now the handle lifts up more than the button goes down. Needs manual assistance. Motorbar cleaning head -great. the thin gap for the dust to be sucked up into? not so good. Too narrow, easily clogged by even a small amount of hair which then just limits everything after. Frequent unbloc
Upright ball animal 3 - Low profile attachment
With the dyson animal ball 3 there is no attachment to clean under the bed etc. I phoned dyson to see if I could buy and use the ‘flat out head tool’ that originally comes with the multi floor option and they didn’t know and just said to purchase it and see, but it’s not showing as available now.The ball animal 2 came with a low profile cleaning head. That’s what I’m after something low to get under the beds. But I don’t know what will fit or if there are any work arounds like 3rd party attachments or adapters.thanks (Moderation Edit - Tags Added)
Dyson DC17 - Zorb Accessory Use
Hi,I purchased my genuine dyson dc-17 animal many years ago now when I first started working at my first lowe’s home improvement store that I participated in help setup and open for business. At the time all of us associates were offered some grand opening discounts one of which were substantial savings on dyson products. So since I already knew that dyson products were known to be quality made products I decided to purchase my dc-17 animal upright corded vacuum cleaner, and quite frankly I’ve been well satisfied with my purchase ever since. On the sticker on the front of the tank it shows that it came with a carpet care kit, that included a brown cardboard box that contained the following items: an accessory with the brushes inside of it, a bag of zorb carpet maintenance powder, a can of dyzolv spot cleaner, & some kind of a hose adapter. I would have thought that some kind of instructions would have been included inside of the cardboard box but never did locate any. That’s what i
