Hi.

If you look at the front left side of machine there is a removeable inspection port it will have 2 coloured buttons you press these in & pull it up to remove.
Now pull handle back as if vacuuming the floor.
Now where the inspection port was you will see that there is a square hole pull forward on the flap in front of square hole it pivots just behind the round rubber seal.
Slowly lift handle back up at the same time The part with the 2 long grooves in it must go under the flap as you lift handle.

Chris.

The brushes do not disengage when in upright position


Set the brush control, as needed. The brush control turns the brushbar on the underside of the vacuum on and off. The button is located beside the power button, on the top-front of the vacuum cleaner. Turn on the brush control for cleaning carpet. Turn off the brush control for bare floors or delicatelb_icon1.png rugs..

My dyson hose sucks good but, when i put handle down, it won't **** but brush does turn


I just had the same problem....suction from wand, but no suction from soleplate, the brush bar spins. Did all the troubleshooting steps on dyson.com but they didn't work...dyson.com says need to take to repairman, being a diyer I went to search engine. I didn't find a fix, however I found one myself....it appears the vac can get stuck in floor mode or in between modes....the dial on top on dc07 ....selector of floor or carpet..try pushing it back and forth to see if that puts it in carpet mode...check for suction or try vacuuming...if that doesn't work, looking at vac from behind vac on the right hand side is the selector dial..on top of bottom portion of vac.....with vac in upright position, recline it as if about to vacuumn floor...look down at selector area ...you should be able to see a rectangular type button exposed ..push this to reset position...you may have to push it a few times...then try vacuumniing.....I finally had suction from soleplate!! Another tipoff to this problem is my selector dial would not stay in place would pop I to carpet by itself, but only halfway....fro a long time my vac would work but not very well...had to go over same area.4-5 times..What a workout! The first time I contacted dyson via tele the rep had me remove some stuff and I was able to look at area below selector...what I saw was two holes, one hole was only over the other hole half way...hence at that time I had only part suction since holes were not aligning properly....I read somewhere as a further tip to get suction to engage, while vac is reclined step on front edge of vac head it said you'll get more suction that way, I haven't tried that, but thought it may help someone

Hard to push


There may be a dial or something to set your unit to "floor" or low, and "High", all for the type of carpet or flooring you are vacuuming... change the setting to the middle or "floor"/ low.

On the other hand, here is a silly experience we may be sharing- sometime these units have wheels set so that, when the unit is "parked" or upright, wheels come down in the back, thus pushing the front down. You can turn it on, but the wheels won't go back into the unit until you move the handle from the upright position... My ex spent 15 minutes trying to get the vacuum to be normal- and all she had to do was just get the handle back at 2 or 4 o'clock position, and it worked fine...
if that's what you did- you aren't the only one! :-)

Good luck.

Dyson suction problem


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your Dyson. If the cleaner won't pick up via the cleaner head and will not stand upright, the valve carriage needs realigning. This is simple to do - please follow the steps shown in the video below.

This should resolve the issue, but for any further assistance or advice with your machine, please call us free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

I have a Harmony vacuum and need it only for bare floors. The attachment I have seems to be too rough on the floors. I just need a simple attachment with soft bristles for a bare floor that will fit this...


Take the lower portion of your wand to a vac shop and ask for a universal fit wide floor brush with NATURAL bristle. The soft bristle is much better quality and will clean deeper into grooves in your wood floor or and tiled area.

Brush roller does not turn off in upright position


make sure there is not a lever to move in order to stop the brushes/agitator...
if the belt makes contact with the end of the shaft the brushes will rotate...
tighten all of course/and take the panel of to check behind the bag to make sure all is tight. (fasteners)
take off the face plate to make sure that the adjustment for the floor tools is not broke and belt is ok.

Eureka Boss - no suction in upright postion


when mine does that I find that the hose is not connected properly where it comes off to use the attachments.
If there is suction there, it is a straight shot to the floor unless it is loose where it fits together.

No vacuum suction during normal floor cleaning operation


That door is called a valve door, and it may have broken, part #38718013. Or the valve arm, rear broke, part number 38719048. The spring part # is 38358001. Usually it is the valve arm that breaks. You would have to take the top cover off, then you can see the parts.

Dispensing problem w/attachment and maybe floor partion


The F5914 has a hose that must be attached to the pump when using the upholstry attachment. Make sure that the solution hose is pushed onto the pump valve all the way. Try pushing the hose down and then pushing the locking collar down to secure it. This will insure that the hose is fully engaged.
