Ours began making a hideous grinding racket and then quit altogether. Upon disassembly, I found a plastic guard protecting the fan that had warped and was preventing the motor from turning at all. Your problem may be related to the same plastic guard. I removed mine and now all is well...I think. If only I could find a replacement for this little guard. Every online parts distributor I've seen will only go as far as selling filters and prefilters.

1-year old dustbuster black decker cwv1408 will not run unless I slap it on left side.


Your description would suggest either loose wire or a short in the switch. Take the unit apart and check to see that battery terminals are tightly connected.

Vacuum is loud


Check for clogs starting with the air passageway at the bottom....
a piece of TV cable is great for clearing clogs there....check all
hoses...check for dirty filters. If you find no clogs remove the
brush bar and belt and start the vacuum...if the vacuum is no
longer noisy the problem is the bearings at each end of the brush
bar..... WD 40 may fix or you will have to replace. If after all this
the noise persists the the problem is in the motor. (If you use WD 40
make sure it is dry before you vacuum carpet)

Dennis

I need to change my sweeper belt on my Dyson 14 Animal


When turned on and set to sweep the sweeper makes a loud noise like it has something stuck in it but the brush is turning abut not does not have a lot of sucking power. It started the other day when a blanket with tassels got caught and wund up in the brush and sucked up in the sweeper a bit. Tried to pull out while running and came out but made the loud noise. If I take off the brush then it does not make the noise when on. I think it might be the belt grooves are worn and slipping when the sweeper is in the sweeping on mode. Sorry, do not know the technical sweeper terms.

Dyson making loud noise


If your brushroller isn't spinning it will make the loud sound. Try removing the brushroll and reinstalling it. If this doesn't work, you may need a new brushroller.You can find one here...

Dyson DC14 all floors.


sept 30,08 bought dc14 all flloor. After 3 to 4 uses it started making lots of noise when on carpet setting. I examined the roller brush and it was cracked at one end. I returned it Oct 13 ,08 and got another dc 14 all floor. Now this one after 2 uses has the same problem only a larger crack in the brush and a small piece of the brush broke off. Very dissapointed.

First make sure it's not the wall charger - use a meter or a flashlight bulb to test the 15 or so volts that should be on the contacts when the charger is plugged in but the unit is detached.

The next thing is to remove the filters and see how easily the "fan" spins - use a popsickle stick or something that won't break the plastic fan if you can't get your fingers on it. Tight bearings may indicate clogged with dust (or corrosion) or destroyed. Free bearings likely indicate a switch or battery problem (good motor.)
