My dyson dc14 leaves lines on my carpet why?


Hi Geoff, it's Jack at Dyson.

To answer your question effectively we would need to understand a bit more about the type of lines your DC14 is leaving in the carpeting. The rotating brush bar sweeps into the carpet pile to remove ground-in dirt and pet hair. The bristle tufts can have the effect of raising the pile where it's been trodden flat from use. Equally, as with any upright vacuum, the two rear wheels can leave temporary impressions in the carpet pile, which may be more noticeable in deeper pile carpeting.

We wouldn't expect the machine to leave other types of lines, and we'd like to help you check the soleplate and brush bar are undamaged, and fitted and working correctly.

When you have your DC14 easily to hand, please contact the Dyson Customer Helpline. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

How do I change to different powers


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24's brush bar is powered by its own motor. This means the brush bar can be turned on for carpets and rugs, and off for hard floors or delicate rugs.

To turn off the brush bar, just press the silver brush control switch located next to the red on/off switch. Press it a second time to turn the brush bar back on.

I fitted a new belt. Green light is on so brush is spinning. As I lower the head the brush slows to a stop as it contacts carpet.


There are much quality differences in belts but the foot pedal with arrow is made to set the hightbecarefully because of easy broken pedals . but if the brush is setting on the deepest stand then its not rotating anymore and the brush stands still. its very easy how you can disassemble the brush and can place them in 3 differend levels in height ? on the grey bearing holders outside of the brush there are 3 different indications l and ll and lll the best is to set so that the carpet if its a thin one the brush must setting just lower then the suction mouth so that the brush are more coming out so deeper come out of this suction mouth so that the suction mouth has made a little more distance from the carpet because when the brush rotate to deep insite the suction mouth .1 the tension of the belt on the brush is lower and .2 the suction mouth sucks vaccuum on the carpet and the brush doesnt rotate because of the force of suction power, play around with the different heights you find the right level.

Belt is strech doese not pick up diert


Hi! The brushes are needed to spin on carpet to agitate the carpet fibers and assist the motor with maximum pick up. If the belt is stretched you will need to replace it. This unit takes belt 562633001. Below are step-by-step instructions for replacing the belt on your Nano.

1. Lay the cleaner flat and flip it to expose the
nozzle base. The base should lay flat and face up.
Remove the five (5) screws.
2. Pull and lift the nozzle guard off.
3. Lift and remove the brushroll. Dispose of the
old belt.
4. Slide belt onto motorshaft.
5. Place new belt in area of brushroll without
bristles.
6. With new belt in place, pull and slide brushroll
into nozzle making sure that the brushroll end caps
are in the correct orientation. Rotate brushroll
manually to make sure belt is properly aligned.
7. Reattach nozzle guard.
8. Secure by aligning the three tabs in the
base slots.
9. Replace all five screws to secure nozzle guard.

Riccar 8625 doesn't seem to beat carpet but the brush is turning


Your 8625 is well over 20 years old. If it's been over a year since you've replaced the belt start with a new belt. Belts lose elasticity and should be replaced at least once or twice per year. The brush roll will still spin and appear to be working fine but when you put the brush roll onto the carpet it will stop spinning fast enough to clean the carpets.

I replaced the belt in our Eureka Boss Smart Vac, it still seems loose, it uses a type R belt. The beater belt still doesn't seem to turn properly and seems that it doesn't pick up very well when I use it...


Check to see that the beater brush is not frozen up. Pull the brush and clean it, spraying some WD40 on each end piece that holds the brush in place. Also be sure the belt is properly installed so that the brush turns in the correct direction. If the brush is not turning or not turning in the correct direction, it will not beat the dirt from the carpet so that it can be picked up by the vacuum's suction.

Carpet height selector doesn't work.


You have a bad belt. It may not be broke but it's so loose that it isn't turning the brush roller when a little resistance is applied to it. That belt is cheap and it's routine maintenance to change it about every 6 months. You will notice a big difference when you put a new one on.
