  • Think twice...

    I mulled this purchase over for months before buying and ultimately bought to save money from buying a brand new Dyson. I was unhappy right away with the refurbished vacuum, the suction was never up to par, although the vacuum looked great. After a month, suction stopped completely and vacuum stopped working entirely. Not happy with purchase.

  • Dyson Dc40 vacuum refurbished

    The vacuum is great when it works. The suction from the main floor unit stopped just a few months after I got it. I have a 3 year extended warranty, so I sent it in for repair. It took almost a month to get it back. It worked for about 2 weeks, then the hose suction stopped. It is now back in for servicing. I had to buy a new vacuum because the servicing takes so long. I love everything I get from Overstock, however, this is a lemon.

  • Like it

    We loved our old Dyson made in early 2000's. It seems like the quality has become cheaper, but we still like it.

  • Awesome vacuum!

    This is the second refurbished Dyson vacuum I'v bought from Overstock. When I saw the deal on this, I jumped. Even though my old Dyson still works great, in a home with 5 pets, I liked the idea of even more power to keep that pet hair at bay. Now I keep one downstairs and one upstairs. Truly a great machine.

  • Great Purchase

    I love the refurbished Dyson! A great way to save a few hundred bucks and still get a great machine. My only "complaint" would be that the ball really heats up, and sometimes when using the wand attachments you need to prop your leg against the ball to make it stay in one place. Other than that, it's a great purchase! I have to empty the canister often, but I don't mind because it's just proof of how much dirt it sucks up.

  • Efficient small vacuum

    I will admit that I buy items based on design AS WELL AS efficiency. The Dyson was rated well, and I was tired of big, clunky, ugly, short-lived vacuums. So I bought this 14 lb, "animal", unusual looking vacuum. It performs PERFECTLY, empties its load of cat hair EASILY, stores nicely and can be easily carried between floors. I have found no defects or problems. However, it does seem awfully delicate, and so light. I am hoping that the new materials used in products today are light but sturdy. I have used my Dyson for over a month and it is still a dream. I did get the extra warrantee as I bought a refurbished machine. But you can't at all tell that it isn't brand new and perfect. This is my second Dyson. I bought the "stick" vacuum (no cord, battery charged) for my vacation condo. It is working perfectly after almost a year. Small dirt containers, but not a problem for me. In both houses I vacuum wall to wall carpeting, large throw rugs as well as wood and tile flooring.

  • Powerful vac but the beaterbar gets hair stuck on

    We have two collies and my husband and I both have long hair so there is plenty of hair at our house! The beaterbar tends to get hair wrapped around it and I have to go in with a scissors to clean it off every time. Maybe that would happen with any vac. It is certainly powerful and gets a lot of dirt up. I don't mind having to empty the canister often because it means all that dirt is coming out of my floors! It is also easy to see when it is getting full. There is a small attachment with a beaterbar that is very good for carpeted stairs.

  • I love this vacuum

    Great price on this vacuum. Fairly compact, and it picks up A LOT of dirt. The dirt canister is easier to empty than my old vacuum and I like the newer looking style of this vacuum.

  • Does this product also have a built-in hose and telescopic wand, like the DC40 Origin? From the pictures, it looks like it does; however, in the answer to an earlier post on 11/29/13, you state that "... The DC40 Origin has a built-in hose and telescopic wand that can be pulled ... No bending down or dials to adjust when moving." Does that mean that the DC40 Animal does not have that? Thank you.

  • Why does it seem like the dyson is losing suction, the hose towards the top of handle is open and is losing a lot suction.

    • If the vac is in upright position, it makes the hose work. If you angle the handle towards you, it makes the bottom part run. Also, red button on is for bottom, and silver button turns of bottom and starts hose, I think.....

    • The hole is only open when the vacuum is totally upright(so the hose w/ the crevice tool etc. can be used). When the handle is tilted back to vacuum using the beater bar, the hole closes and no suction is lost.

  • I just purchased my refurbished overstock Dyson a few days ago and did not purchase the extended plan...actually didn't view it and it defaulted to decline protection. Can I still purchase the 3yr plan? My item has already shipped and should be delivered in a few days. Thank you!

    • Hello tashamarieconnects, You can purchase the protection plan up to 10 days after original purchase date. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. I hope this helps you!

  • I see continually it has a 180 Manufacturer Warranty, is that 180 "days"/6 months and does that cover parts and labor? When you purchase new they come with a 5 yr warranty parts/labor.

    • Hello tashamarieconnects, This refurbished item includes 180 days of warranty time from the manufacturer. Should an issue arise outside of our standard 30 day return time frame it would be necessary to contact the manufacturer for the warranty details. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Hello brisbanite, this will work but you will need to use a converter. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • what is the packaging like on the refurbished vacuum? Does it ship in a new orginal dyson box sealed? Thanks!

    • Thank you for shopping with us jlore83. It comes in a brown box from the factory that does the refurbishing. It is very clean and boxed to ship. Have a great day.

    • The packaging is a tall, brown cardboard box, Very sturdy. I don't recall the Dyson name being on the packaging however. The items inside are package and protected neatly too.

    • There is a label on the exterior of the tall brown box telling you what's inside. There is no direction manual so call Dyson to send to you.

    • Just received my refurb. DC40 Animal from Overstock.com; it did include a basic Dyson manual. The packaging is as can be expected from a new Dyson, except that the box is a plain brown cardboard finish with a single plain label on the end-flap. The interior cardboard pieces are specific for this vacuum and very well packed.

  • Does the power nozzle brush turn off for bare floors?

    • Hi crossford, you cannot turn off the brush. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!

    • When I go from carpet to bare floor it is unlike any other vacuum I have used. It doesn't blow dirt around and doesn't lose suction. I no longer sweep I vacuum everything! I dropped dirt on the kitchen floor the other day and decided to give the Dyson a try to see how it would pick up, it left a trail through the dirt the exact width of the vacuum and it picked EVERYTHING up in one sweep!

  • Photo shows model in purple which is my preference but every other place I have seen this model it is always shown in orange. Can you guarantee me the one I will receive is purple? thanks!

    • I think the color is the difference between the "animal" model and just the regular one....either way, mine was purple, and my mother who also ordered it got purple.

    • Mine was purple as well. My friend told me that the colors change as the models vary in specialty.
