the flashing light is to tell u that there is something blocking the suction of machine , most times its a full dust cup or hepa filter blocked this if allowed to continue will over heat the motor so it shuts off to prevent motor damage
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC39 Multi Floor, but from what you've described it sounds like your machine may have a blockage in the floor tool, wand, hose or inlet duct. This is simple to resolve by following each of the steps shown in our video guide:

Check the wheels on the bottom plate to make sure they are not allowing the bottom to sit flat on the floor. The wheels must keep maintain a gap between the plate and floor or it will suck down like a suction cup.
In normal use, the filters should be washed at least once a month, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filters to dry somewhere warm for at least 24 hours before replacing them in the machine.

I suffer from back problems and find the cylinder vacuums cause a great deal of back strain. I have been told that an upright vacuum is not suitable for wooden floors - I would appreciate any advice, particularly if you knows of an upright vacuum cleaner that works well on wooden floors.Thank you Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.Well, I can think of a couple of solutions for you and I hope they will help. #1. The first thing that came to mid was to stick with the canister vacuum with good suction but instead of dragging the canister vacuum around and having it irritate your back problems you can have a longer hose made in the length that would be comfortable for you and to use not a vinyl brush with black bristles, instead you can use a good horsehair brush of which is better for the wood floors and will not scratch the wood floors. #2. It does not have a lot of suction but id you buy an electric broom like Hoover or Eureka you can convert the plastic tool that comes with it from the factory and use and adaptor and install a good horsehair brush, it like an upright but the cord is much shorter, you may have to use an extension cord. #3. if you own your own home you can install to your existing home a central vac with a 30 or 35 foot house with wands and a horsehair brush and then you can go in any direction but then your hose is much longer. Or you can shorten your hose to 20 or 25 feet , but then you are adding more inlets to your existing home, it is up to you. A central vac straight suction is less than an est of $750.00 or less depending on the unit your purchase but a lot easier and all your got to do is empty the bag or dirt cup from out in the garage and the sound is also out in the garage or down the basement . A local vacuum cleaner dealer can assist you with any of the 3 choices that I suggested. I hope this will help you. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
