Dyson Vacuum Pulsing Sound

Dyson vacuum is designed to pulse. You can’t ignore pulsing sounds because the appliance will stop running immediately. This is good because it protects the Dyson device from further damage.

The sound manifests when the device develops a blockage. But identifying the source of the clogging is easier said than done. Blockages can form in the filters, attachments, and vacuum cleaner rods.

Pulsing almost always originates from an obstruction. But if you’ve ruled out clogging, check the power cord, battery, or charger for defects.

How To Fix It?

  • Empty the bin using the release button at the base.
  • Ifixit recommends a combination tool for removing the dust around the cyclone’s shroud.
  • Find the filter and clean it with water and mild detergent. Dry it thoroughly before putting it back. A dirty filter will cause stuttering by restricting airflow. A wet air filter will make things even worse by introducing moisture to the vacuum’s internal components. If the filter is old or damaged, replace it.
  • Check the hose or wand for hair, dirt, and any foreign objects capable of creating a blockage. Remove this debris to fix the pulsing.
  • Check the roller for debris. Use tweezers to remove obstructions.
  • If you remove the clogging, but the pulsing persists, check the power cord for damage. A damaged power cord interferes with the vacuum motor’s power supply, leading to inexplicable pulsing.
  • The wired shopper believes that using extreme suction settings can lead to pulsing. It overwhelms the motor because it must work harder than usual to generate the suction you need. This disrupts the airflow in the process. The pulsing sounds will force you to take action before you damage the motor. Using Dyson’s recommended suction settings will solve this problem.

Dyson Vacuum Weird Sound Meaning

1). You have an air leak.

2). The motor is damaged. You may notice a pungent smell.

3). You have a blockage in the Dyson vacuum. This has forced the bleed valve to open to prevent the vacuum cleaner from overheating and accruing irreversible damage.

4). The brush bar is obstructed. Vacuums with a clutch generate a ratcheting sound when debris blocks the brush bar. This is good because it protects the clutch belt.

How To Fix It?

  • Look for torn (worn-out) seals or poorly fitted parts. Replacing the seals and re-seating the poorly fitted parts can eliminate air leaks.
  • Look for tubes and hoses with rips and tears. While patching them with tape can provide temporary relief, you are better off replacing the damaged lines and hoses. Otherwise, they will continue to leak.
  • Replace a damaged motor. Consumers hate this solution because it typically means replacing the vacuum’s main body (You find the motor in the main body). If you’re lucky, cleaning or replacing the filter will solve the problem. Dust can chock the motor because of a dirty filter.
  • Identify and eliminate blockages. This means taking the appliance apart and checking everything from the filter to the wand, brush, bin, etc. You can also inspect the bleed valve for defects, replacing it where necessary. Don’t forget to dry the filter after cleaning it. You can make things worse by adding moisture to the vacuum via a wet filter.
  • Remove the debris obstructing the brush bar.
  • Test the brushbar by turning it. Make sure it turns freely. If you encounter resistance, remove the brushbar and apply WD40 to the ends. You can also replace a damaged brush bar.
  • Make sure the vacuum has a reliable power supply by searching for and fixing loose connections and damaged wires.
  • Sometimes, turning the Dyson device off and on can solve the problem.

Dyson Vacuum Alarm Sound Meaning

1). The battery is charging, it needs to be charged, or the battery is full.

2). The battery has refused to charge.

3). The vacuum is overheating.

4). Dyson vacuums have a warning system that alerts you when the filter requires cleaning.

5). The vacuum is not plugged in, or the plug is not secure in the socket.

6). The power cord is damaged.

7). The airway is blocked.

How To Fix It?

  • Replace a defective battery.
  • Check the charging cord. Is it damaged or frayed? Replace it.
  • Inspect the wall outlet. Use a different outlet. Do the flashing lights and alarm sounds disappear? If they do, fix or replace the first outlet.
  • If the Dyson device is overheating, leave it alone for a few minutes. Let it cool.
  • Identify and fix the cause of the excess heat. This usually means removing and cleaning or replacing the filter. You should also inspect the brush bar. Hair will get stuck in this component.
  • If the motor is working harder than expected, inspect it. You can also test it. Motors can misbehave because of a clogged filter. If the motor wears out or malfunctions, replace it.
  • Replace a dead or defective fuse.

Dyson Vacuum Clicking Sound Meaning

  • Something is jammed in the brush bar.
  • Loose connections.
  • The battery is faulty. Look for flashing lights. They will confirm this diagnosis.
  • The motor has failed.

How To Fix It?

  • Disconnect the vacuum from the wall outlet, turn it to the side, and check the brush bar. Remove any debris you see. The brush bar has a reputation for becoming entangled with hair. Use a knife to cut it.
  • If you’ve had the Dyson vacuum for several years, consider performing a thorough cleaning. This means taking the vacuum apart, which may require a technician’s assistance, depending on your skill and experience.
  • Replace a defective battery.
  • Find and tighten loose connections.
  • Replace the motor.

Dyson Vacuum Boing Sound Meaning

The boing noise sounds like the result of a factory defect, but it’s actually intentional. The experts at Pocket Lint quizzed Tom Richards, a Dyson engineering manager, about the issue. He said that Dyson vacuums have eight magnet poles on the shaft.

Releasing the trigger brings the rotor to a sudden stop, which, in turn, stops the magnet at one of the positions. However, the magnet momentarily bounces between all the other positions, producing the boing noise consumers have grown to associate with Dyson.

How To Fix It?

Removing this noise isn’t an option. Dyson allows the boing sound to persist because it gives their vacuums some character. The noise sets their product apart from the competition. Dyson can take steps to either reduce the noise or remove it entirely.

However, for the moment, they have no intention of doing so. Therefore, even if you call Dyson’s customer support line today, don’t expect them to help you. The boing sound will disappear organically in the future as Dyson’s technology evolves. But they won’t deliberately remove it.

Dyson Vacuum Sounds Like Air Escaping

  • You have an air leak. Leaking air generates a whistling noise. Check the hoses, tubes, and vents. You should also look for broken seals and poorly seated components.
  • Do you hear hissing? While it sounds like escaping air, the sound can also originate from obstructions in the system.

How To Fix It?

  • Clean dirty filters. Replace damaged filters.
  • Identify blockages. This means checking the wand, brush bar, motor, bin, tubes, hoses, etc.
  • Don’t allow the bin to fill. You can create a blockage by running a vacuum with a full bin. Dyson Medic has a picture showing the button you can press to empty the bin. 
  • Hire an expert to find the air leak. Laypeople are unlikely to accomplish this task because it means taking the Dyson vacuum apart and looking for torn seals and poorly fitted parts. An air leak is difficult to ignore because it compromises the vacuum’s suction.

High-Pitched Sound Dyson Vacuum – Why?

  • A seal is worn out or damaged.
  • The machine has a blockage.
  • The bin is overflowing. The vacuum is struggling and failing to add more dirt and debris.
  • If you’ve noticed a pungent smell, the motor has failed.
  • One or more tubes and hoses are torn. The rips have created an air leak. The vacuum’s suction may deteriorate. Test this theory by removing the hose and running the vacuum without it. If the whistling stops, the hose is either blocked or torn.
  • The vacuum’s frame has cracks. This will also compromise the vacuum’s suction.

How To Fix It?

  • Most people respond to blockages by checking, cleaning, and possibly even replacing the filter. They don’t realize that other parts of the vacuum can also clog, including the wand and brush bar. Take the machine apart to find the obstructions.
  • Find the broken or worn-out seals and replace them.
  • Find the poorly fitted parts and re-seat them.
  • Replace a damaged motor. This could mean replacing the vacuum’s main body. It depends on the model. A technician may offer a repair option depending on the severity of the damage.
  • Replace damaged tubes and hoses. Don’t patch them with tape.
  • Empty the bin (if it’s full).
  • Replace a vacuum with significant cracks.
