I'm new here. [11 Feb 2009|01:06pm]

My Dad bought me a Dyson Animal for Christmas. I love it! it still finds things, even when I think my floors are clean. I have a chronic illness, so cannot vacuum as much as I'd like. I have a guy, named Jim, who comes and cleans for me twice a week. I have a problem though. Today, it started turning off when it was in the upright position.
I called Dyson and they said I needed to remove the u-shaped part of the pipe, so that I could get to the blockage. They also said that my filter might be durty. I am blind and they were not very willing to describe to me how to remove the u-shaped part of the pipe. I handed the phone to Jim, so that he could talk to the lady. He is sighted, so I thought he'd have an easier time since the lady wasn't very willing to explain things to me. She wasn't willing to explain them to him either. She told him that she'd get me set up with service, however there isn't a Dyson Service center within 100 miles of here. I asked if a repair person could come out and help me figure this out? She said they don't do that, even in a situation like mine. I could drop it off at UPS, but then I would have to pay for it to be shipped there, pay for having the blockage taken care of and the filter cleaned and then shipped back to me. I'd really rather just know how to fix it myself.
If any of you can provide any instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum so that I can get all the necessary parts cleaned, I'd appreciate it. i've heard there are lots of nooks and crannies for things to get stuck in Dysons and I want all the stuff gone. I need my wonderful Animal working again. I have two rabbits and one of them has been sick with a cold lately. I've been trying to vacuum a lot to keep the dust down for him and it's seemed to help him get better a bit faster.

THE CHURCH OF DYSON [05 Oct 2006|05:24pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]


so much, in fact, my husband is calling me Mrs. Dyson.

It's a miracle machine.

Is everyone here still happy with theirs? Any problems? Something bad to look forward too? This thing just feels too good to be true. I'm stupified!

I wrote a review in domesticity and one in my own journal also.
I can't say enough good things about it. I keep vacuuming the same things over and over and I keep getting MORE stuff out of the carpet. I would not believe this if somebody was telling me but seeing it for myself is entirely different. I feel as if I have an alien being in my possesion. This is no machine, it's a living creature.

We got the new dysons in at work and they are spify...there is also a new free toy dyson...with the purchase of the mama dysons that is...it's cute, it has attachments and it has batteries so it creates a vacuum and spins confetti around in the funnel...it is now my second favorite purple toy that makes noise when you turn it on...

I'm so glad I found this community! I love Dysons too!

It all started a little over a month ago, when I had mentioned them to my boss, because I had found out that they do extensive durability testing on them. We have a 145,000 square foot building to keep clean, and lots and lots of dirty carpet, so durability was a must. He went on BestBuy's site, where I had told him they were, and decided on ordering the DC 15 "The Ball." I was so excited to order it; he was busy that day, so he just had me do it. I placed the order, and picked it up that night, 33 miles away from work, and just a few blocks away from where I attend class. I had asked him if I could "try it out" at home, and he said he didn't mind. I got it, walked out of the store, and walked to my car. I had to recline the passenger seat to make room for it in my '98 Ford Escort, then I seatbelted it in, and went to class. Later that night, I came home, took it out of the box, and decided to try it. I have a cat, and my dad still uses a 1970's Kenmore canister vacuum. It works pretty good, but there isn't a brushroll on it, so it doesn't get the stuff that's lurking deep down. Anyway, my dad had just vacuumed with it, earlier in the week, and I literally filled the Dyson 6 times before all was said and done, in our 2,000 square foot home. That thing picked up all the cat hair, and all of the dust that had been lurking in our carpet. I was impressed. At work, it's equally as effective, and I've been using it daily for over a month, to vacuum several thousand square feet of carpet at a time, and nothing's gone wrong yet. I do have to thoroughly clean the bin and the filters more frequently, but nothing out of the ordinary. It still works like the day we got it. I've slightly abused it, my co-workers have more-than-abused it, and somehow it still works. It picks up more than our "Commercial" Royal vacuums do, which is impressive. Also it doesn't throw dust back into the air like they do. I am very pleased with it's performance. I'm also glad that my co-workers seem to leave it alone for the most part. It really is unofficially mine, since I clean it out and keep it at peak performance.

Just the other day, one of my co-workers sucked up water with it. Probably around a quarter of a cup, by accident, and it didn't pass through any of the filters. It did however turn all of the dirt into mud, but didn't cause any mechanical failures or anything bad. I believe that James Dyson has truly "idiot-proofed" the DC 15. After a thorough cleaning tomorrow, because I haven't yet had time except to empty it, I'm sure it'll be as good as new.

It's definitely a superior device. I work on a cleaning crew at my church, and I've experienced it first-hand. It truly is a marvelous machine, although I have noticed that there's some Anti-Dyson sentiment going around as well. Maybe they'll come to their senses when James Dyson starts making automatic weapons.

Random reason I'm a dork:

Today I got to buy our DC14 Animal Dyson vac.

I rode home with it sitting in my passenger seat with my arm around it.

The bad part about it? I hugged this vac almost all the way home without realizing it.

*Hangs dork head in shame*

My new boyfriend's name is James. He's just above three feet tall, purple and silver, and VERY powerful. We are in love.

Yes. I am a dork.

My package from dyson arrived in the mail today! I got more excited than a teenage boy gets when his "Playboy" mag arrives. The anticipation of this package is the reason I have decided to stay alive these past few days. Now with this new arrival, I am totall-eee horny.

I got an e-mail today from the dyson company. They said they were going to send me some literature. They seemed raelly happy about having such a big fan. I told my mother about it and she said she was happ for me. I am a little worried that she might have made a fake e-mail account and wrote the e-mail to me posing as a dyson associate. I sure hope not. I will be heart broken. Anyway, that was the best part of my day.

Fun with scanners and stolen materialz (thank you katelyn) :)

This, i think, is quite possibly the best dyson picture EVER. It's even more amazing in person.

Yesterday I hailed a taxi cab and Mr. Dyson was inside it. We made sweet sweet love until I told him I was an Oreck girl and then he threw me out and vacu-blasted my ass. Sad. ;.;
