DC07 loss of suction
« on: November 01, 2012, 05:23:51 PM »
Hi. I have recently changed the filter in my DC07 Animal which has sorted out the lack of suction problem in the extendable hose area but there is still no suction from the main floor area. There are no blockages and I would therfore be very much obliged if someone could give me a clue as to what may still be wrong! Thanks very much.

Clutched model or non-clutched? If clutched, have you turned off the brushbar accidentally?
Is the brushbar spinning when the handle is reclined?? Does it turn freely by hand?
Are you sure there is not a blockage in the bottom hose? This is the usual point where they clog up.

Might be worth checking bottom hose for slits and check brushbar belt
