Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Vacuum doesnt seem to **** likr when it was knew. Checked hoses etc for clogs and it has none. The hose part sucks great. Its just when vaccuming????
we had the same problem loads of suction on the pipe but did not touch any thing when in upright mode. The brush bar was rotating but did not seem to be doing anything to the carpet. when we looked at the machine sideways the plate that surrounds the beater bar was not parralell to the floor The front was meeting the foor so from the hoovering position it looked fine but the back was tipping up under the vacuum lifting the brush bar away from the floor and stopping the suction. The only thing that seems to hold this parallel when in hoovering mode seems to be the connection hose from the beater bar into the cylinder (Clear plastic with spirals). This seems to act like a spring to hold the plate paralell. We twisted this through 180 degrees and flexed it a bit and it is now holding the plate parallel. Bingo! beater bar is connecting with the carpet and we are back to great performance. Could not believe it could have such an effect
Our machine is several years old so we might have to get a new hose. However there are no splits in it so we might try a bit of duct tape repair if it goes again as it only seem to be the rigidity of the hose thats rhe problem not the connectors.
Hope this helps
