Question about Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum
My carpet is white but old and in high traffic areas it leaves behind dark lines of dust every time I push the vacuum forward . I check the bottom of the brush head and a lot of dust accumulates on the plastic, but its static electrically charged so it doesn't seem to go away after I wipe it off. The filter is emptied and suction still works. What is the problem? And what can I do?

We had a similar problem with ours and had to finally take it to the repair shop. They informed us that we needed to replace our clutch and that you needed to do that every 2-3 years. It cost less than $100 and has been well worth it.

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

Check the axles of the wheels for debris accumulation. Also, make sure the height is set for the type of carpet that you have. Try pushing the machine on a bare floor--is it hard to move there also? Hope this helps!

This sounds like your roller brush has stopped spinning for some reason. Turn the machine upside down when set to carpeting, and make sure the handle of the vacuum is down, as if you were in the vacuum posistion, and not up like the handle is when you're storing it.
Is your brush roller spinning? If it's not, there are two kinds of agitator brushes on the Dyson DC14, each has it's own troubleshooting.
If your beater brush is perfectly rounded in shape, then you have the newer style Dyson DC14 that doesn't use a clutch mechanism. Either belt has broken, or falled off, and is causing the brush not spin. Here's instructions with a pictorial on how to fix this problem;
Step 1. Unplug the vacuum cleaner.
If the roller brush still doesn't spin after checking and removing any obstructions, then you need to replace the belt (or clutch if you have the early models). Here's a video that explains how to replace the clutch mechanism on Dyson vacuums;
