I was just searching the web to see if anyone had the same problems as us with our Dyson. It's fantastic with carpet but we recently put in wood floors and the thing is awful in bare floor mode. It won't pick up anything! Not sure of the model but it's the yellow one. I'm going to have to replace it.

Yes I have the dyson dc25 animal. It does not pick up well at all and does not fluff the carpert. I followed all the manufactuers recommendations to make sure there is no blockage, I know its picking up because there is dirt and debris in the canister but I thinks its picking up the top layer of dirt and not sucking up the deeper stuff.

Mine seems to be working well on our hardwood. I've not tried chereos, but I probably wouldn't as I once accidentally picked up a tiny Lego piece and it swirled around in the canister (I could hear it scraping around the inside of the plastic wall). I had to empty the canister and remove the Lego. The cheereos would probably swirl around too and you would want to take them out.

I was searching for this same problem. It is not picking up on low profile carpet. I need to reset the brush every now and then. Brush stops on its own. Does anyone has the same problem?? My DC25 is less than 1 month old used twice.
