Noise when turned on or off.

I just got my Dyson DC14. When I turn it on or off it makes a noise like a single dog yelp. Is this something to be concerned about?

I don't think you need to worry about the noise. Dysons run hot, it's just one of those things...

Dyson terrible loud noise


If it is not something wrapped around the beater bar (lay flat and turn over to check, remove floor plate if necessary), an object loose in one of the pathways to the dust collector, or a failing motor then I'm not at all sure.

What kind of noise?

Loud noise with belt protection system On


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. The knob you're describing is the brush control, which turns the brushbar on when set to 'Carpets', and off when set to 'Hard floors'. The machine may not pick up hair from carpets if you have it set to 'Hard Floors'.

The brush control system is also designed to make a ratcheting sound to warn you if something is jamming the brushbar. The easiest way to check for and remove any obstructions is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=668&product=DC14-ALLFLOORS_US

Once you've removed any threads, hair and other obstructions from around the brushbar and cleaner head, you should find this resolves the issue. However, if you've tried this and are still concerned, please get in touch with us directly so we can help. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack

Took the brush off of my Dyson DC14 to clean off all the dog hair and put back together. The brushes will not turn and it makes a loud racheting noise when try to vacuum. Tried resetting the clutch. That...


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. The brushbar is not designed to be removable on this model, so it's possible that damage has been caused, or that the brushbar has been replaced incorrectly. It's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can help you resolve the issue as quickly as possible. You can call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

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.

Why does my Dyson animal DC14 make that horrible screeching noise and how can I stop it? Please!!!! Thank you.


I can't probably help you but I can tell you what Dyson told me. I have this same vacuum and it just started making that same noise. When I called their rep they had me take off the bottom plastic piece (comes off real easy by taking a coin and turning the three circles). Check to make sure the belt isn't broke. Then, they had me pull toward me the roller brush and turn it to get it seperated from the belt. Then, take off the belt. On mine, the spindle was full of dog hair clogging it. I took twizers and narrow pliers and pulled everything off. Then put it back together. It worked fine for the next few times I vacuumed then it started again. So, I did the same thing again and found this spindle covered with the hair again. Cleaned it, put it back together and it worked again. Today, while vacuuming I picked up a piece of string and that noised started again. Turned it over and saw that string on that spindle. Took it off, cleaned it and it worked again then started the screeching again. So, tomorrow I am calling a vacuum repair place. IF you have the same vacuum (which you do) it should still be under warranty. Dyson told me I would have nothing to pay unless I abused the vacuum which I did not. Hopefully I am not without it very long...I have two golden retrievers who do shed alot.

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...

Suden loud noise when vacuming carpet


Hi.

Check that brush roller (beater bar) is free to turn with no obstruction.
If it is still noisey after doing this try this site for Dyson repair manuals.
