If the brushes are turning, you may need to clean the brush of any hair or anything else that has collected on the brush. If you have been cleaning it regularly,

SOURCE: My dyson vacumn is hard to push on carpeting. How do i fix it?

This happens when the bristles in the brush roll get worn down too short. Put in a new brush roll and the machine will pull itself over the carpet, so you hardly have to push at all.

SOURCE: dyson - can't push the vacuum

try to see if the carpet setting is to carpet. i know this machine says that its a life time belt,but i would check this just in case. best way to tell if it's working is to lay the machine on its belly with the brushes pointing up and turn on the machine to see if the brushes are turning. (be careful not to put your face directly in front, just in case something is lodged in the brush and flies out )

SOURCE: Smartstrand carpet makes vacuums difficult to push

The seam problem could be an installation problem. It is important to pattern match any carpet with a pattern. If the carpet is a plush carpet, the seams should not be invisible, but not unsightly. If he carpet is a frieze, the seams should be hard to find. Any variance from these norms could mean a redo of the seams by a talented carpet installer. In a large room such as yours seams will never be invisible.
Good Luck, carpetguru

Adjust height for plush carpet


The best solution is to change your method of trying to push the vacuum. The more upright the handle is on an Oreck, the harder it will be to push. The lower the angle (the closer the handle is to the carpet) the easier it will be to push. There will be a huge difference. Use a straight stiff arm that is pointed directly down towards the carpet. Use your shoulder and have a near locked elbow. The vacuum will now push easily.

Plush carpet setting on vaccuum?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 Animal's cleaner head is designed to self-adjust to different floor types - so you don't need to bend down to adjust a dial. You can see how this feature works in the video below. In addition to this, next to the red on/off switch you'll see a silver brush control switch, which allows you to turn off the brush bar for hard floors and delicate carpeting.

Carpet manufacturers sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of carpeting with the brush bar turned off - we'd suggest checking directly with the manufacturer of your carpets to ensure you're cleaning them correctly.

If you'd like any further advice on using your DC41 Animal, please email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and one of our experts will be in touch as soon as possible.

Best wishes,

Jack

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Our new carpet is too thick to push our Dyson. What do we do about that?


Hi there,

Some plush pile carpets are unsuitable for use with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush. I'd recommend contacting the carpet manufacturer for advice on the correct way to clean it. They may suggest vacuuming it with the brushbar switched off - to do this, turn the brush control on your DC07 to the 'hard floors' setting.

If you have any further concerns, please get in touch with us directly - one of our experts will be happy to provide further assistance. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your DC14 on this particular carpet. We'd strongly advise contacting your carpet manufacturer to check it's suitable for cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush. Manufacturers sometimes recommend cleaning certain types of plush-pile carpeting using suction only.

Difficulty vacuuming SmartStrand carpet


Wish I had a solution because we have the same problem with our Smartstrand. We have a Beam Central Vac put in our new townhome and it takes a huge amount of effort to push the power head forward. I have tried a couple of regular vaccum cleaners on it; same problem. The bottom of our power head has a black residue on it. ILike you, I am thinking there is something in this green product that accumulates on the bottom of the power head and prevents the power head from going forward smoothly. There must be other people having the same problem.
Help!
