Dyson - Wow, That Was Fast!
Repairing My Dyson Animal - Compliment
A couple of weeks ago, I got the crazy idea to clean my house. I managed to get my room cleaned and vacuumed, then I started on Baby Clutzy Deux's room. I started the vacuum up, but I noticed that the roller brush wasn't rolling. I pressed the on and off button and got no response. I checked the brush for obstructions, broken belt, etc and everything was fine. So I called the customer service line. After some over the phone troubleshooting, the representative decided it needed to be taken in for repair. Fortunately Dyson gives all of its vacuums a 5 year warranty and mine is only 2 years old. I had two options. The first was to take it to the local Sears to see if they could fix it (insert blood-curdling scream here) or take it to the Dyson store about 45 minutes from my house. Fearing that I would never see my poor Animal again if I took it to Sears (and I told the representative so), I dropped it off at the Dyson store approximately 10 days after my phone call.
At the store, the salesperson asked if Friday was soon enough to get it back to me (this was Wednesday, mind you). I told him that was fine and the girls and I left (it actually took me longer to get them out of the car and situated than it did to drop off the vacuum.
The following day, as I was driving home from work, my phone rang. It was the Dyson store calling to tell me that my vacuum was ready to be picked up at my earliest convenience. Wow, a less than 24 hour turnaround for a repair? Since I was already 2/3 of the way home, I stopped off the following day and picked it up. As it turned out, the on/off switch for the roller brush went bad, so it was fixed. Now my vacuum will hopefully work great for many more years.
