You need the clutch replaced. All Dyson DC-7 and DC-14 machines need to be serviced annually and have the clutch replaced if you want it to perform properly. Take it to your local vacuum repair shop to have it serviced. The good news for you is, most of the newer Dysons only last a couple of years and are disposable. Yours is repairable.

My vacuum switch will not come on in carpet position and will not vacuum correctly on the carpet


It's hard to determine without knowing what brand and model you have. It could be the brush roll switch if you have one, it could be the motor that turns the brushroll if your model has one. It could be an electrical short. Check for a fuse in the power line inside your vacuum.

hooked rugs produce the highest amount of friction opposing the brush rotation, which can over heat the drive motor. try using a height setting that raises the brush so that it barely touches the pile. If this issue has been going on for some time, you may need to replace the drive motor.

Hi, i have a panasonic eco max, the brush has stopped going round, the belt is as new and brushes clean.suction good from hose. Any ideas please? thank you


The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.

My Sanitaire vacuum is not picking up well - works ok on floors but not on carpeting


Depending on the model you may have a single or two motor system. If it is not running well in carpet mode but still has suction check to see if the brush for the carpet head is turning. If not look for a red reset switch or spin the brush when the vac is shut off. It it spins freely the belt is either broken or badly stretched and needs replacement.

The reason for the brushes to stop when it is above any surface is there is a switch in the handle that stops the brushes so it dont burn your motor up it may have a faulty switch.

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. petedcurtis@gmail.com

Kirby Ultimate won't clean carpet


when you install the hose connector it trips a switch that switches the vac motor into high speed because the vac path is longer using the hose. check the belt after you remove the front. make sure the direction of rotation is in the direction of belt travel stamped in the impeller. try adjusting the head height
