The only thing that you can do at home to fix this problem is check for obstructions in the hose or the "U" port. If none are found then you will have to take it to your local vac shop for service.

Where do you put attachments to make them work?


There is a button on the handle that releases the suction tube from the floor brush housing. Once the suction tube is released from the brush assembly, you can install the attachments on the suction tube.

Why when I Pull out handle to use edging attachment, suction stops?


Make sure that the vacuum cleaner is in the fully upright position as there is a slide 'gate' thet directs suction to either the vacuum head or to the handle section depending as to which section you wish to use. In the upright position, you shoud be able to hear the vacuum at the handle where the attachments connect. If you still have vacuum at floor level, check the action of this gate. The actuating mechanism may be broken. Cheers Bob

1)see if the belt is broken or worn and replace, need to inspect the motor too for repair , brush, dirty, lubrication, pulley worn.
2) suction test for hose clogged, or bag/tank full need emptied.God bless you

Extension hose has no suction. Regular floor function works fine


Remove the hose from the unit and check the opening where it goes in. Next look inside the hose and see if you can see debris trapped in there.

When you try to clear the line you need to be in a place where its ok to get dusty. Outside, garage etc.

Shake the hose and keep at it until ALL debris is gone. Also check to see it a stick. pencil. or some other rigid item is stuck in there. If there is it will clog again.

If shaking doesn't work try a broom handle to clear the hose.

Great suction through handle, no clogs anywhere,


OK - there are two obvious things to check: 1. Make sure the brush is rotating. The DC14 has a 'brush control system" operated by a knob on the base in front of the right side wheel. Make sure this hasn't accidentally been moved to the "off" position. With it in the "on" position, switch the machine on, tilt the handle back and check that the brush roll is rotating. If it isn't, then there's a broken belt or a problem with the clutch mechanism in the brush control system. 2. If the brush is rotating, switch the machine off (and unplug it), turn it over and you will see a short length of clear plastic hose with spiral reinforcing that runs from the brush area to the motor. That hose often develops a split (which lets air in and reduces suction around the brush). Take that hose off (pull it off from the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush end) and inspect it carefully for any damage. If it is damaged, get a new one - don't try and repair the old one, it's not worth it.
I hope this helps - if so, please remember to rate my response. If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll see what more I can do. Good luck!

No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards
