“Terrific suction but that's all”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by Ieuanfawr (68 reviews written)

Our old Dyson finally died - not the motor/suction, but the plastic body/chassis seemed to have become brittle. Pieces broke off, leaving very sharp edges on which fingers and hands were cut. We bought a DC33 at a discount. It seemed more suitable being lighter and more compact. Positives: Terrific suction. Great on open acres of carpet. Light and compact. Negatives: Horrendous high frequency noise which hurts the ears. Even worse in small rooms. Dyson say it's normal. Light means it… Read Full Review

“DYSON NO MORE!!! DO NOT USE AUDIOVISION IN SHEFFIELD...”

Written on: 29/04/2013 by teamlemon (1 review written)

I had the DC01 (and still do) and was happy with it, but has now started to leave debris about so decided to purchase another, the DC33i. I really liked James Dyson for his determined pursuit of getting his product to market, and thought maybe this man's company would be better, WRONG! I am sadly disappointed that his customer service is just like all the rest. It is a noisy machine (which I was told by Audiovision in Sheffield (another useless company) that it would bed in, but not according… Read Full Review

“The last dyson for me!”

Written on: 23/04/2013 by Farginsneekyicehole (8 reviews written)

I regret sticking with the Dyson brand. My advice would be to look elsewhere, this hoover feels cheaply made and doesn't work very well. Congratulations Mr Dyson, since moving your production abroad you have made yourself a tiny bit richer, such a shame your hoovers are now rubbish… Read Full Review

“Stuiped problems - not OAP friendly”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by BluntLuke (2 reviews written)

Good suction, despite others saying otherwise. Easy to change from carpet to hard floor - again despite others saying otherwise. Other than that everyone else is bang on with their comments about the rest!! I had an older model, but decided I wanted HEPA filters and more suction. However the older model was much easier to hoover stairs and pipe around edges. This one chases you around the house! And then this weekend I pulled the hose apart - 3 steps from the top of my stairs! It's too… Read Full Review

“No as good as the DC07”

Written on: 09/03/2013 by Russell Buckley (3 reviews written)

My 7yr old Dyson DC07 recently packed in (motor burnt out) It was a great machine with powerful suction of carpets and hose extension suction was also excellent although the machine was a little heavy taking up and down stairs I could cope with that for its suction power. I went to Curry's to the Dyson part and spoke to the Dyson sales advisor who explained the difference between all the machines but at no stage informed me that the suction was not as good as the DC07, we went ahead and… Read Full Review

“noisy and tacky”

Written on: 31/01/2013 by Ursie469 (1 review written)

Bought this in a hurry and am regretting it after two days. The piercing whistle is almost unbearable and the rest of the machine has a plasticky cheapness about it that does not bode well for the future. Sucks o.k. but can't use it for more than a few minutes before the noise drives me mad. Dyson should be ashamed of itself. Or find a way of sorting the problem. Last Dyson I will ever buy… Read Full Review

“Piercing whistle”

What an infuriating machine. The high pitch whistle from this machine, which Dyson is aware,is unbearable. I suggest Dyson reads these reviews and does something about it. This is the very last machine I buy from Dyson… Read Full Review

“Dyson DC33 Multi Floor - Poor Quality & Design”

Written on: 26/10/2012

This newer model is a backward step. Compared to earlier models, like the DC07, the DC33 is of a very inferior quality, the majority of it manufactured from thin flimsy plastic. Noise level is almost unbearable with a loud whistle. Dirt collection canister is much smaller. The tools supplied are very flimsy & the crevice tool is too short & will not fit into tight spaces due to the sliding brush that is permanently attached to it. The tools only loosely push fit, rather than click fit, into the… Read Full Review

I agree with everything you say here.
The whistling/screeching high pitched noise is awful and remains in my ears long after I switch this vacuum off. I contacted Dyson about this by email and they were quick to respond. An engineer came out within a couple of days but thought the noise was part of the design of the cyclone. I pointed out that if the dust container is loosened slightly the noise goes away and the motor noise is then acceptable. He said he would send another dust container/cyclone but it hasn't made any difference. I am very surprised that such a company as Dyson have produced a machine which is of inferior quality to our previous Dyson. My wife wants her old Dyson back. I may have to put a claim in for ear damage if I continue to use this machine. Very disappointed.

Hi Shieldsman - Thought you would like to see what Dyson's response was to my complaint when I emailed them about this very expensive, flimsy new model they have duped customers with. They declined to take up my offer to demonstrate the faults/problems and failed to send an engineer to investigate, which indicates to me that they are fully aware of the inept design & flimsy quality of their DC33 machines.
Their email reply was as follows:
"I am sorry to hear you are disappointed with the DC33.
Please be assured that the individual plastic parts are fully tested before a vacuum cleaner is launched. The entire vacuum cleaner is also tested at Dyson on a computerised rig that accurately simulates vacuuming at its most vigorous. As well as this we complete extensive home trials to replicate normal domestic use. In conclusion, the plastics used to manufacture Dyson vacuum cleaners have consistently proven to be durable and strong.
Regarding the tools and bin size these were changed after listening to customers feedback about our machines, I appreciate this will not suit all of our customers. The push fit tools was deemed suitable as the suction of the machine is strong so you should not need to apply a lot of pressure on the tool. Unfortunately an adaptor is not available to allow you to use your DC07 tools on your machine.
Please be assured that all Dyson cleaners are extensively tested, and that noise levels are comparable with other household appliances.
At Dyson we take all product performance criteria very seriously and are constantly striving to improve the acoustic signature of our machines, including DC33, which is no exception. The tone you refer to at 6470hz is indeed the blade passing frequency of the vacuum motor and is an unfortunate consequence of high flow motors of this sort. It is actually the same specification and variant motor that is used in DC14 but the fan tone is not as dominant on that machine".
NOTE; there is no acceptance by Dyson of their design faults or any hint that they will rectify the problems! Reckon a VAX machine is a much better buy, being much cheaper, & they give a 6 years warranty.

They make huge profits on their machines but I think they will rapidly lose their 'loyal' customers as more people realize the inferiority of their latest product.
Fortunately I also have a 'Henry' which is lovely and quiet and has suction which is just as good as any Dyson.

“Appalling vacuum cleaner”

Written on: 10/09/2012

Dyson DC33: I purchased this model after owning a previous model for a number of years, which proved to be very successful. However, this model is nothing short of appalling. There are buttons absolutely everywhere to change settings or release and return different aspects of the cleaner (quite infuriating!). The cable is so heavy it could be used for welding and it becomes entangled with itself very easily. But the aspect that causes most frustration, is the extendable hose that DOESN'T!… Read Full Review

“Dyson DC 33 Multifloor. Unstable and unfriendly”

Written on: 18/07/2012 by bobjan1 (2 reviews written)

Good parts - Plenty of suction and a HEPA filter. For straightforward floor cleaning there's no problem. Bad points - The spring in the hose is much too powerful; the machine will constantly be charging up behind you. Dyson's advice is too place it on an angle. This either causes it to fall over or simply straighten up and charge across the floor until it bangs into your legs. On stairs, because of the strange clumsy design of the wand, two hands are needed to control it. The tools are not able… Read Full Review

Purchased a new DYSON D33 from Comet ,got home and assembled the machine. The machine would not pick up !!! Spoke to Dyson and they confirmed that the machine was faulty !! The whole process was painful and caused us considerable travelling costs and all because Dyson have no effective quality control ???
