I read the previous reviews by people and it leaves me baffled why people are negative. I have an average house and no problems what so ever. I have owned dysons since they first emerged in the mid 90's. I have a dyson in each of my rental properties. I believe that there is no reason for tenants to live in a dirty house as the dyson cleans it perfectly. Assomeone said in a review, they have to clean the filter every two cleans. Well, they must live in filthy conditions and are very dirty… Read Full Review

When it is working properly it is excellent,but it is constantly failing in its efficiency due to hairs off the dog stopping the brush from spinning..It is advertised as ideal for pets . Overpriced and does not do what it says on the box… Read Full Review

I have had this now for 6-7 years and still going strong! Within the first 5year guarantee I needed the main hose replacing once which was sent out to me fast and very simple to replace myself. Unfortunately it has ripped again but this was in the 7th year of having the dyson and nothing else ever needed replacing. So really good compared to other Vaccume but the hose could do with being replaced by longer lasting, or stronger ones. As I said the first hose lasted me 4 years till it needed… Read Full Review

Bought the DC07 and was initially impressed with its performance. Unfortunately it has had numerous problems. I have had to replace the small palstic bottom hose twice. The motor packed up after 4 years and had to be replaced.It was smoking so I switched it off. As it was near Christmas I had to wait 2 weeks for an engineers appointment which was Christmas week. They couldnt guarantee he would have a replacement motor if needed and may have to orde the part so it would be well into the new year… Read Full Review

I have also during these 6 years only had to replace the belt twice which I think is great.I love this Dyson but am currently saving up for the ball DC42.Believe it or not but I have even sucked up water with this dyson and the only thing that happend was it started to smell and all the rubbish in the cyclone got stuck to the bin and on the next empty I had to scrape all the rubbish out apart from… Read Full Review

I had a Dyson DC04 years ago and it was bombproof. I therefore trusted the brand and got the later DC07 and I must say it is rubbish. The filters clog so often, I bought a spare to swap and rotate and keep the machine working. I have a normal house but the filters will clog twice before the hopper is ready to be emptied. The motor gets incredibly hot and it will eventually cut out until allowed to cool down. I even experimented without the filters and it was the same. The fittings are stiff to… Read Full Review

We upgraded our faithfull DC07 to the latest DC41 animal, it's going to malmesbury on Friday to be repackaged so it can go back to the shop it was bought from, i put it together & have to say I'm surprised this model even left the factory, it is so flimsy, no way will it out live the 5 year warranty, too plastic, poor on & off button, difficult to lock into upright position then release, we didn't even go as far as to turn it on! Buy at your peril! … Read Full Review

We have had four, now as a Dyson critic why four? dont ask....wife, families etc. Problems include: Poor suction 2/4 Motor failure 3/4 Last one a DC07 the motor bearings now shriek, the front beater has a huge design flaw. If it gets stuck, the drive belt ( no clutch) burns out in less than 10 seconds accompanied by smoke. They lose vacuum due to the many pipes, un bends etc that are fitted together and start to leak. The motors overheat and shut off These vacuums are terrible yet we get… Read Full Review

Why would u buy an up right vacuum to lug up an down stairs ho w stupid. I've had mine for 7 years never had a problem. I took it apart myself and cleaned it perfect. Never looses suction. Great if u have a lot of carpet to clean. The only thing I can think of is it is a little heavy at times depending on what u are doing.other than that great . … Read Full Review

I fell for the slick commercials. Spent way too much for a very poor machine. Dyson knows that this machine is severly flawed and should take it off the market and replace all that heve been sold. The brush and suction stop working all the time. I spend frustrating hours with the factory "fix" and no results...been 3 times to professional dealer repair...same results. DON'T PURCHASE THIS VACUUM CLEANER!… Read Full Review

Bought this product 13 months ago to clean a small living room sized office. Cleaner has broken down after 13 months and Dyson customer repairs will not repair the product. Poor product, very poor customer services. I would definatley steer clear of this product.
The vacuum is way too heavy, you need to be a weight lifter to use this thing efficiently. The front of the vacuum is too bulky, it does not fit easily under anything including high fronted sofas and bookcases. There is no light on… Read Full Review

Loved my dyson dc07 for two weeks, until ....
cutting through the cable accidentally with the Dyson. I was using the hose under the bed moved around the bed, when it stopped dead. The Dyson had run over the cable as I tugged, and immediately cut cleanly through the cable. The blades continue to spin even when you use the hose, unlike the older ones that cut out the blades when you use the hose for safety! Fortunately, it didn't kill me andI managed to get to the electrical supply to switch… Read Full Review

The Dyson DC07 has very good suction compared to the DC01 which I replaced with it. It is easy to empty. The only thing I found, again comparing it to the Dyson DC01 I had before this model, is that the suction through the hose isn't as strong as on the DC01. I also find that the DC07 is pretty heavy and noisy, but it works for it supposed to do: vacuuming!… Read Full Review

Dont buy a Dyson DC07 silver yellow upright. They are expensive vacuum cleaners to buy and my motor only lasted 2 years.
My advice is to buy a Henry hoover and you wont go wrong!… Read Full Review

I am paying to have it fixed, because I think I would struggle to find a better one. Only gave it a 7 and nothing more because of disappointment that the motor hasn't lasted longer for the price of the Hoover. Would advise that you do not overstretch the hose section, as this will split (as mine did). Hoover quite heavy if you're not very strong… Read Full Review

The Dyson DC07 silver yellow upright vacuum cleaner is the best one I have used, including industrial ones. The biggest issue that I have is the stairs. If I leave it at the bottom, it tips up and it is impossible to hold it and hoover at the same time. Does anyone have any useful tips to help with this task? Maybe I am using it wrong. I also find that the pipe bends, so lessens the suction… Read Full Review

The Dyson DC07 upright vacuum cleaner really does pick up dirt, and really easily.
It also removes animal hairs, and makes cleaning the stairs really easy.
It is much easier to empty than previous models. Mine is red however, not silver and yellow - a much nicer colour.
It has lifetime filters that you wash, so there are no extra expenses.
The service is excellent if you have problems. A simple call replaced my faulty hose, which was posted within two days. I also received a brand new… Read Full Review
