SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

I had the same issue and solved it easily.My experience is the same as the March 6th response/ When you push your foot onto the base and then recline the handle, use your toe to gently push the very front of the base down closer to the carpet. This creates a much stronger seal and suction and picks up every bit of dirt easily. If i do not do this extra step the suction is much much less. I tried an experiment with sand that I poured onto my carpet. Initially, I went over the sand 4 times and the dyson 07 would only pick up 50 percent of the sand. I then poured more sand onto the carpet, and this time pushed the front lip down so it was contacting the carpet. This time only two passes were needed to completely **** up all the sand. Not sure why this is not in the manual but it really works. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Dyson won't go back into upright position to engage suction

The dyson.com website had a solution for this particular problem. Just press in a button in the area around the right wheel while lifting the rear of the vacuum up. This allows the base to roll forward enough to go back into the upright position. I did this and it worked. All fixed.

SOURCE: dyson dc07 will not lock into upright position

- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The brush control is designed to switch the brush bar off automatically when you stand the machine back into the upright position. It is designed this way to protect any delicate floor surfaces when you have the machine switched on and upright and when you are using the hose.

If the brush control should be in the centre position and move forward to the "on" position when you release the head. If it is not doing this, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards

Hight adjuestment won't work


Lock the vac in the upright position and then tilt the unit back off the front wheels, it should move easier. If the height adjust does not work, there may be a broken part, I would recommend service by a vac shop.

Check the plastic part, which the the self propelled cable is attached to. (release the handle, tilt it back. You should be able to see the cable attached by a screw to a black plastic arm.) It is either broken or the cable is lose.

Brushes not moving


The DC14 has a "brush control system" operated by a knob on the right side of the base. This knob has two positions: "bare floors" (or "off") and "carpet" (or "auto"). The motor turns the roller only when the knob is on "carpet", and even then only when the handle is tilted back (with the base still flat on the floor). Make sure the knob is in the correct position.
Next possibility is that a belt has broken. The problem is that this system uses two belts, only one of which is easy to see. If you're sure that the control knob is in the correct position, and still the roller doesn't turn (although you can turn it freely by hand), then most likely a belt is broken. It's also possible that the clutch itself has failed.
Belt replacement on this model is not for the faint-hearted! To see what's involved, you can go to www.dysonmedic.com then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "DC07 clutch replacement" (DC14 is similar). Then you have to decide who is to do the job!
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Dyson DC14 roller doesn't turn but everything else works. The belt is on correctly, the roller is clean and it turns manually so I can't figure out the problem.

It's a slightly different model, but the principle is the same. At least you will see how to remove the clutch cover so you can check on the other belt and confirm if this is the problem or not.

Vacuum height won't go on low carpet setting. Dial will go on medium and high, but not low.


Make sure you're not trying to adjust w/ handle in upright locked position because thewre is a cam which raises the vacuum head a little bit when handle is locked in upright position. If this is not the problem, turn vacuum upside down with handle in unlocked position and power cord not plugged in(for safety reasons obviously), unscrew and remove 3 screws that hold belt/beater brush assembly cover in place(2 are in corner near ends of beater brush and 1 is towards motor housing) tilt end of cover with 1 screw up and remove cover(there are 2 tabs at beater brush end of cover). Right above this is the height adjustment assembly with 2 rollers, raise up the assembly gently and using your finger or a bristle bottle brush,etc. make sure there is no debris caught between the height assembly and the hose(you will understand when you see it), if there is no debris you can now see the pattern on the bottom of the height adjustment knob and the lobe that rides on it, just check to make sure nothing is broken and/or missing, hope this helps!!

Jim, To put tension on the brush, tilt machine forward when upright, move carpet selector knob to carpet. then turn vac on. Brush will only spin when vac is tilted back to operate. brush stops when upright and on to use hand tools so the er is no danger to carpet or persons with moving roller.

Belt knob on/off position - does not lock


If it doesn't lock, then maybe you haven't turned quite far enough. Could also be that the belt is so stretched, that it isn't holding in the locked position.

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
