I hated it.. until I figured it out.

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I live in a studio apartment with hardwood throughout, but I do have a huge area rug, so I needed something that could do a good job on both surfaces. I had been sweeping the floor but I had not been able to clean the rug without a vac on hand, and since I was in the market I figured I could look for a multi-purpose. When I saw this vacuum the first thing that I liked was the canister design, I like being able to leave the body behind and use a small section to get into smaller spaces. I also liked that it was small (it seriously is tiny) so I started trying to find the best deals and I ended up not being willing to pay the price people wanted, and lowes had stopped selling them so I gave up for a few weeks. One day on craigslist I saw one up for sale and decided to jump on it. I got the thing for a 1/4 of the sticker price and took it home with me. I was so excited (like a new toy) I wanted to use it immediately when I got home. I used it on the rug and the first thing I noticed was that the vacuum did not stand the carpet fibers up.. (you know, that "Clean" pattern that lets you know where you've been.. yeah, none of that) and anytime the vac would leave the ground it would FLING dust and debris all over my legs and back onto the floor. I was very disappointed with my purchase and started to understand why lowes stopped selling it.. A month went by and I decided to use it again just to find solace in my purchase instead of having a dirty rug.. and the same thing happened. I decided to try and clean it out and see if that did anything. The filter was clean, no dust in the holder really, and the suction was very powerful with the brush end off.. so I didn't understand what was wrong. I put the brush end back on and it kept "pshhhhh" clicking back into off position every time I would pull the knob out.. Really irritating, so I stuck a quarter (the same quarter I use to undo the parts of the machine) in between the knob and brush to hold it in on-position. I ran it across the rug again and after vacuuming realllly slow I could still see plenty of dirt, glitter, and crumbs in the rug.. I was lost, I didn't know what to do. Sitting in the floor just disgusted with it.. I took the brush end off.. undid the roller in it and took the roller out to clean the hair off.. that is when I noticed the completely clogged (really small opening) section where the suction comes through the brush.. it was completely stopped up with fuzz, hair, paper, anything and everything. I spent about 15 minutes over the sink running water through it, picking at it with a hanger, running more water, and finally it was completely unclogged. I put it all back together and it definitely fixed the problem. Turns out I had bought it that way.. the guy that had it didn't know what was wrong with it and threw his hands up.. I fixed it and now I am happy. Design flaw on the small hole that would even allow a small piece of paper to jam it up.. possibly so.. but it is super easy to clean out if it is acting up. The vacuum clings to the floor and definitely stands the carpet up now. For the most part.. this vac is an acquired taste.. you really wouldn't want to use this in a big house, as you would have a hard time covering a lot of ground with this little head.. but it is perfect for me (and my rug) and as long as you understand how to correctly maintain it.. you'll like it. For sure. Suction is phenomenal and design is so cool.

Not thrilled

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I just got this vacuum today. I have the Dyson stick vac, which I love and don't love... (runs out of charge too quick and too heavy) but (great suction and cleaning). This vacuum does not have as good of suction as the stick it seems and it sounds like a dentist drill! :( My biggest disappointment tho is, the cord is WAY TOO SHORT! I think I need to return it and get the bigger yellow canister....?

Love this little vacuum!

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I have been wanting a dyson for a very long time, I was finally able to get one last week. I am amazed at how great this little vacuum is. I thought that because it was smaller maybe I would loose some of the quality of the dyson, not true, its just as good. I have a 2yr old that leaves crumbs all over the place and my vacuum had broken almost 2 to 3 weeks earlier so my apartment was a mess. I brought my dyson home and was able to vacuum the entire apartment in one shot, I don't think my carpets looked so clean, and the air smelled fresh too.

Don't like it.

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

We got this with our wedding gift cards and are going to go exchange it for a different dyson. This one is really annoying because they are two separate parts, the cannister always runs into things and gets stuck behind things while I am pulling it around with the hand held part. The suction really is bad. I have to go over the same thing quite a few times very slowly and it still doesn't get all that much picked up. I definitely wouldn't recommend it. We still want to try with dyson though.. So we'll see about the next one.

So unhappy

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

The DC26 Multi floor canister vacuum has been such a disappointment to me. It picks up very litte from carpets, leaving everything from dust to pet hair. It does work well on bare floors, but I could have purchased a much less expensive vacuum just to do my bare floors. I would not recommend this product to ANYONE.

The DC26 is wonderful

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I really love the vac except that the cord is WAY TOO SHORT!! You cannot go very far without running out of cord and having to replug it in. That gets to be pretty annoying. I'll have to go buy an extension cord.

better than any other

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

Our Grandma gave us an old vacuum cleaner after she got a new one. Over the past year, it was falling apart! It was very heavy and my mom hated it. Then I started saving up for the Dyson City vacuum. When I finally reached the price, I got it from dyson.com. It was easy to assemble and very lightweight. I did our "family room" with it . When I was done, I looked at the bin and it was almost to the MAX level. I am happy with it so far!

Dyson City DC26 Multi floor Canister Vacuum

By Lynda44

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I purchased this vacuum because we have all hard floors with 3 rugs at entry doors and wanted an easy to handle, light-weight machine to clean both surfaces in our typical 3 bedroom ranch home. Plus, the fact that the Dyson name is well-known was a factor in my decision. The suction is O.K. not as good as I expected. The powerhead brush quits spinning anywhere from 20 - 30 times during a normal weekly vacuuming. If I lightly bump a wall, bump a furniture leg or go from rug to hard surface floor or vice-versa, the power brush quits turning--although the vacuum keeps most of its suction. I have to turn the power button off or remove the powerhead from the sweeper wand to restore the brush turning. Also, any hair or thread on the floor wraps around the powerbrush and has to be pulled off manually. It would be nice if the power cord were about 6 feet longer so I could sweep an entire large area, like our family room dining area, without moving the plug to a different outlet. The vacuum does not take bags and it has to be emptied often. I do not mind because it is very easy to remove the canister and empty it. I feel the vacuum is very overpriced at $399.99 due to its problems with use and not being as powerful as advertised. It might be worth about half of its cost. It is lightweight and easy to move and store. I like the feature that holds the wand/hose on the canister for storing. Overall, I am disappointed for the value at the price.

Happy with my DC 26 and with their customer servic

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

I purchased my DC26 and it arrived very well packaged with good instructions. I have mostly hardwood floors and was so tired of lugging around heavy vacum. This vacum really leaves the floors clean with no sandy residue at all. However, I tried the turbine head. It worked fine the first time but when I tried it the next day it would not work. I called the company and got to speak to a customer service rep. She was very patient with me walked me through what she wanted me to do . She then proceeded to tell me they would send me a new head immediately. I received the head today which was about 4 days after my phone call. The new head works very well and I am very pleased with this vacum. It is nice to find a company that stands by its product.

dusty dc26

By akichan

Comments about Dyson DC26 Multi Floor Canister Vacuum:

machine blows out a lot of dust which bothers me; have to wear a dust mask when using vacuum. Otherwise powerful little machine, but limited use due to dust factor. Does not serve purpose of fast cleanup that we originally wanted.
