Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having a problem with your DC14. Since you say you've already washed the filters and checked for blockages, it's probably best if you get in touch with us so we can run through some simple troubleshooting steps over the phone, and arrange service if necessary.

You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US). I'm sure we'll be able to help.

Kind regards,

sounds like there is blockage in the suction hose -- lay the machine down and remove the lower floor plate and clean out the hose area where it bends down to the floor unit ( use a wire coat hanger to fish out the blockage ). also check the main hose for any obstructions.

It makes a very loud noise and doesnt pick up much


When they make noise like that there is usually an issue with the drive system (the belt and roller brush). I would try cleaning off the roller brush and putting a new belt on. You can access the roller brush and belt by turning the vacuum over so the brush faces up. There is a cover plate over the roller brush which can be removed by removing the (4) phillips screws. with the cover plate off, you can remove the brush and old belt. clean the brush off really good and put it back with a new belt. This is normal maintenence for this model and should be done every 6 months.
You can get the replacement belt here:

No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon


Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.

Debris getting stuck in vacuum hose


Check that the filters are completely clean. If there are clogged they would have to be washed and then dried to room temp (or a low temp tumble dryer, put the filters into a pillow case with a towel and install into the machine) Tip the bissell backwards to make sure the bottom bin is pushed and locked all the way in. Only when the two seals meet will you know that the bin has locked in properly. Unhook by prising the main hose at the back off to check for clogs as well as the main hose at the bottom and the main dust channel at the sole plate where the roller bar is. You may have to remove the bottom plate to check for any obstructions behind the brush bar.
I have the Easy vac myself. Its not an Easy machine to maintain when it gets clogged!

Attachment hose has no suction


Sometimes when you take them apart and
reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't
make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on
the lever at all) that switches
from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere
are no clogs in the duct then that the
most likely problem
