Stupid vacuum

The Dyson Vacuum in this house has stopped working. The Dyson Vacuum that belongs to the landlord, I feel the need to add.

I’m sitting here worried that I’ve broken an $800 vacuum.

I’ve read the support center of the Dyson website. I’ve watched at least a dozen YouTube videos of people explaining how to fix it. I’ve taken it apart and put it back together. It’s still not working.

I feel so defeated when it comes to things like this. I just cannot fix it. I don’t know how. Despite trying to tell myself that I can do anything I put my mind to, I really cannot.

I’m aware this is a first world problem. I guess life is good if all I’m worried about is a stupid vacuum.

  1. I figured you might be anxious. It’s a lot bigger in your mind than how he would react. Maybe you should summon a chip on your shoulder and view it as you’re paying rent and he needs to get you a working vacuum. That’s how I might approach my anxiety in that situation. But then, it’s less challenging for me because I can often be an angry and entitled type, so there’s not much to summon over here. I just hope you feel better soon.

    1. Technically speaking he’s not supposed to provide a vacuum. He just left it here because he moved in with his girlfriend and she already had one. Also, technically, I did something stupid and am the specific reason it’s broken. Ohhhhhhhhh, I’ll tell him eventually. I just need to work up the nerve.

    1. Oh! That’s assuming I’ve checked every nook and cranny for blockages. You should be able to tell from how it behaves you when you plug it in… for example, whether the blue light flash or just doesn’t come on at all, etc.

      1. The brush wand actually stopped working. So, when I flipped it upside down to look, it was filled with hair. Pet hair. Human hair. Which makes sense because I have super long hair and I’ve had a dog here on and off the past few months. Anyways, I took it apart to clean out the brush wand like the Dyson website said, and when I put it back together it didn’t work.
        Uh oh.

  2. I fixed our Dyson, though it’s probably a different model to yours. In the wheel/ball thing, a cable had broken somehow. I simply twisted it back together and popped some electrical tape over the exposed wire. Sorted.

    1. Yeah it’s the brushwand in mine that has stopped spinning. I’m not really sure how to fix it because the Dyson website suggestions haven’t worked.

    1. HAHA. I definitely didn’t buy a Dyson. I think even if I could afford a Dyson I probably wouldn’t buy one. I’d buy something cheaper and use that remainder of the money on something cool. The landlord, on the other hand, has very expensive taste.
