SOURCE: Since the last use of my new ProHeat X2 carpet

Check the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool mode). On the underside of this section is a small (about 1 inch square) red plastic piece with a little door on it. Flip open the door and you will probably find it is clogged. Clean it out and you should have full suction again.

How do you recommend getting candle wax out of carpet? It's been there awhile : Cutting it out isn't an option.

Put a piece of clean fabric over the wax and use a warm iron on top of the fabric to melt the wax, rub and repeat if necessary

Wax in carpet

Yikes!! ok... first start by using ice to cool and harden the wax. Then use a dull knife like a butter knife to scrape as much of the wax up as possible.

Now... if the wax is an obvious color you've got a couple choices. 1. Patch the carpet with a hunk from a hidden area in the closet... OR... you can try to use a warm (not hot) clothes iron and a bunch of white paper towels to melt and absorb the wax.

See youtube for how to patch a carpet.

Dyson dc14 brush won't spin

Liz thank you so much for the quick fix. Moving the carpet/floor knob a few times reset the belt. My method of slamming it against the dresser did not produce the desired results.

Trying to use the hardfloor cleaning tool. a) it keeps falling off, and b) It doesn't seem to be sucking up the water/solution. Grateful your help with this thanks Maggie

I had a similar problem with the attachments falling off, the answer is quite simple, rub the end of the tube with candle wax, it really grips well.

Spilled oil in boot of the car how do you get it out

put down cat litter or sawdust and sweep it out. repeat this until no more will absorb. then if it is carpeted use foaming spot cleaner and follow the directions. If not carpeted, use Dawn and warm water to remove remaining residue. ( this will work okay on carpet as well, if you have nothing else to use.) farmerbear at

The power head just stopped working last night and I can't get it to work on the carpet. What could be the problem?

Did you try setting the power reset button on top? Mine wasn't picking up dirt very well so i took it apart thing the belt was slipping it wasn't. The nozzle was clogged up at the head. i pulled out all this cat hair to see one of the cat toys was lodged in. i used pliers to pull it out. if you have power and the brush is turning you might try checking that to make sure it's clear.

Hopping - jumping - skipping - bouncing

It could be that you have the brush settings wrong for your carpet type. Check if the brushes are on number 3, if so, try dropping them down a notch or two and see if that does it. I think that the brushes when spinning spin towards you, so when pulling the vacuum back, the brushes are helping to drive, when pushing forward, you are pushing against the brushes. If the brushes are sticking out too far, it could cause bouncing/jumping. HTH :)
