Cinetic Big Ball Animal Pro

Does the Dyson Cinetec Big Ball Animal Pro loose suction when you use the turbo head compared with using multi floor head?

Hi Rhonda,

Thank you for your question.

The Turbine head should provide superior performance on carpet. If this is not the case we'd recommend to reach out to our experts directly via email at auaskdyson@dyson.com.

Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor

I bought my cinetic big ball multi floor Dyson from Harvey Norman in February this year but I've found it to be very disappointing. I've had 2 Dysons previously, an upright and a barrel type and was extremely happy with them. Both easy to empty. I chose this one because there's no need to wash any filter but I think that's just gimmick. This flimsy plastic sliding idea is not good at all. The first time I went to empty this one, the bottom catch gave way and dust and dirt went all over the floor. Each time I have to make very sure it has clicked in properly because it nearly always doesn't. Now the sliding mechanism has become stuck and it is very hard to push it down and then hard to push back up again, (and then make sure the flap has closed properly). I wonder if I should take it back to Harvey Norman. Would they replace the dust cylinder? Or would a new one do the same thing? I've read where others have said the bottom flap doesn't always shut properly.

Hi Jennyette, I have not had any problems with my Dyson vacuum. I generally take out the extended warranty when I purchase goods like this. I know from experience having had problems with a washing machine purchased from Harvey Norman that they are only too happy to assist when problems arise. I would take it back and explain the problems you are having. I am sure they would be only too happy to either have your vacuum repaired or replace it. There is so much competition in the industry that they will want to keep their customers happy. I hope this helps Jennyette and good luck. Regards Jenny

Thank you, Shan, but I have already rung Dyson and a new canister is being sent. It was obviously a faulty one right from the start. I hope the new one will be normal and I can once again enjoy vacuuming with my Dyson.

Cinetic Big Ball Allergy

We have a dyson cinetic big ball allergy ... the power head has just stopped working. We have dismantled and reassembled the head and there are no blockages and there are no blockages in the machine. It still has good suction, just the power brush is not working. Any ideas?

Hi there - I've noticed that my dyson animalpro has started blowing dust out of the vents at the back of the machine; I have ended up with big balls of dust filling the room. The machine is only a couple of months old. Is there a way to clean out a filter??? Thank you in advance.

Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor

Before I use the Philip vacuum cleaner $140 but the sucking strength is very strong when I take out the head to use the pipe only but my Dyson Big ball multifloor only has one mode, can not make it stronger and when take the head out to use the pipe only like the Philip, it sucks weakly that the little things can not go in if it's deep enough but the Philip one can. Sometimes the place does not need the head, do you have anything stronger than this and can adjust the speed or the strength of the machine? Thanks.

That i am not so sure im sorry, mine is totally fine though i had no complains with it. I guess it just depends on how powerful u want a vacuum to be as mine is enough to clean those deep dust. There maybe great product s out there that better im sure

Dyson
DysonDyson

Hi Sophia,

Thank you for your query.

While the motor speed of the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor is set to go at one speed, we don't anticipate you'd have any trouble with the suction.

If your machine isn't working as you believe it should, please email our Dyson Experts via auaskdyson@dyson.com and we will be more than happy to help.

Best wishes,

Do you use another attachment on it when you take the everyday head off? I like the long flat kind of one to do along my edges etc I find it gets great suction better than just the hose itself because it is a smaller area.

DysonDyson

Hi Jay,

Thanks for your question.

The Cinetic Big Ball Multifloor has one head called the Musclehead that automatically adjusts to suit the floor surface. There aren't separate heads for hard floor and carpet for this machine. We are assuming that you might have a different model that has two main heads or that you are having issues with the Musclehead.

So we can discuss your concerns, please email auaskdyson@dyson.com and our Dyson Experts will be in touch to assist.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Cinetic Big Ball Animal Pro

My Dyson Cinetic Big Ball doesn't seem to work properly on the carpet. I used to have a Dyson previously that had a turbo head on it and it worked so well this new one doesn't seem to pick up the fluff as easy. I feel that there isn't half as much suction as the old one. Is the turbine head really turbo like the old style turbo heads? If it is, why doesn't it have as much suction when I use it on the carpets. Works great on the tiles.

Hi there,

Thank you for your query.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble using your machine. If you have the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor that comes with the Musclehead, please slide the slider on the front of the head away from the "MAX" setting. This should make it easier to use.

If you continue to experience difficulty or have another type of Cinetic Big Ball machine, please email auaskdyson@dyson.com and we will be happy to assist further.

Is there an adaptor for Cinetic big ball multi floor to fit a DC19Y attachments there was one in the box but doesn't fit DC19Y attachments?

1 answer

DysonDyson

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for your question.

The adaptor that comes in the box is designed to allow some previous model tools to be used on your new machine. The DC19 had quite a unique connection and unfortunately this and all adaptors will not allow you to use the tools on your Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Multifloor, apologies for any disappointment.

Cinetic Big Ball

I've had a kinetic barrel vac for a few months & have had nothing but trouble with it. Every time I went to empty it dust would spew everywhere. I had the dust collecting cylinder replaced, but I'm still having trouble & now it even spews dust into the room when I'm vacuuming. I've watched the videos to change or clean filters but my model isn't the same. If there are filters that need to be changed how do I do that? I will never buy another Dyson vacuum cleaner, they are just too dirty. Also it seems to me that the clicking on & off of the hoses & brushes is simply a money making venture. You actually have to bend down to change brushes instead of just using your feet to do so. Really not a good design, but just my opinion

DysonDyson

Hi Sue,

Thanks for your question and sorry to hear you feel this way about your machine.

The machine should be expelling cleaner air, not be emitting dust back into the room. The Cinetic Big Ball machines have internal filtration. There are no filters for you to wash or replace.

To discuss this further with us, and so we can assist you, please email us at auaskdyson@dyson.com including your contact details, your product review and the machine's serial number and we will in touch.

Omg.... my Dyson animal pro vacuum is doing the same. I vacuumed an average size room (3x3) and the vacuum spewed out so much dust that the air was hazy and it put an obvious layer of dust on my just cleaned glass dining table... I normally can't fault Dyson and have had Dyson vacuums for the past 15 years! But this is ridiculous.... my new Dyson is terrible!!!!

Hi Hass,

Thank you for your question.

The Multi-floor will come with a floor tool designed for both carpets and hard floors while the Allergy comes with the Turbine head which will work better on carpets.

The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal will come with the Turbine head for carpets and a Hard floor tool.

Cinetic Big Ball

I have a Dyson cinetic big ball, while operating it the other day I lost a part from the brush bar, the part that is missing is where the filter is (the round plug for want of a better word that goes over the filter.

DysonDyson

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for your question. The circular piece that holds in the brush bar is called the end cap, this is the part that you would remove with a coin. The part on the other side that looks like a mesh filter is called the Lint Filter assembly.

Please email our Dyson experts at auaskdyson@dyson.com including your contact details, the machine's serial number and a description of the issue and a photo of the affected area and we will be happy to help.

Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor

I have a cinetic big ball Dyson multifloor but I do not know if the blue part on the musclehead is supposed be down while doing timber flooring or up. Anyone?

1 answer
Dyson
DysonDyson

Hi there,

Thanks for your question.

The purple seal around the underside of the musclehead floor tool should be in a down position when the machine is switched on and the floor tool is on a hard floor surface, it should retract upwards when on carpet. Please note that you can also adjust the suction using the 2 red sliders on the top of the head.

Please note that the suction needs to be going through the head for it to be able to adjust.

If you need further assistance please reach out to our Dyson experts at auaskdyson@dyson.com including your contact details, a description of the issue and the machine's serial number and we will be more than happy to help.
