SOURCE: In Carpet setting, the vacuum brush does not spin

I put 3 turns of electrical tape around the area of the beater bar that meets the vacuum belt. This solved the problem short of replacing the beater bar.

SOURCE: the vacuum doesn't have an suction power to pick

Make sure the bag is empty, then remove the bottom plate from the brush head--look for a debris jam near the rear end of the brush compartment. Remove the bag and look below where it attaches to the base for a similar debris jam. A stiff thin wire (coat hanger) with a small hook bent into the end is handy for clearing the debris out. Take the machine outside and turn it on once--if you were successful, the air will rush through it again (and blow a wad of junk into the air). Hope this helps!

Powerhead won't rotate on low-pile carpet


Sounds like the vacuum is adjusted too low on the carpet. Adjust it to a higher level. If this is not the problem, then the belt is slipping. Buy a new belt.

The beater brush will no longer drive under a load on short pile carpet


Have you tried changing the height adjustment? There should be a knob or lever that allows you to adjust the height of the beater brush to accommodate different carpet lengths. Even with a new belt, the brush will not spin if the height is too low. Try adjusting it all the way up, then while it is running, adjust it down until there is some resistance. The beater brush should just barely scrape the top of your carpet.

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.

Wont move forward or backwards


Generally the belt is probably stretched and needs replacing but I have had several that required modifying the height adjustment assembly. Belt should be a bit of a fight to stretch and get the brush block back in properly to maintain resistance. The higher carpet causes the belt to slip and can even cause burn/wear from the motor shaft spinning in one spot. Sometimes people run them and burn through and break the belt. Generally you smell rubber burning if belt is slipping and burning. The height adjustment modification was a last resort and not easy! Not for the average person! Another post tells how to modify but better be handy!

When i set it on carpet instead of bare floor it is hard to push when i vacume (when i turn nob it only has two settings floor and carpet no high pile or low pile)


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your DC14 on this particular carpet. You may want to contact 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 carpeting using suction only.

If you have any further queries about using or maintaining your Dyson vacuum cleaner, please get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to provide the information and assistance you need. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack
