SOURCE: Capture bagless not sucking!

Both ends of the hose will unscrew, allowing you to push out hair and fiber clogs with a broomhandle. There is a coarse filter above the dustcup which will release with a 1/4 turn counterclockwise, allowing you to remove the hair and fiber bundles trapped in the inlet. The filter below the dustcup also tends to clog. Anything more and you have to start getting out the hand tools.

Release button to empty cylinder wont work cant get it off manually

Hello, the canister empty function works by pulling a long plastic rod that moves the catch on the bottom access door. It sounds like either the puller is stuck or that the rod may be broken. If the puller does move upward when pulled, then the later in most likely. You can check by removing the Torque screws and pulling the top section off very gently, because the canister really needs to be opened and removed first, do this outside to avoid a dirt spill in the house, either way I would look for a used canister from another machine, which is really a much cheaper and less dirty option.

Hi Donna, it's Jack at Dyson.

As with any vacuum cleaner, it's normal for your Dyson vacuum to generate harmless static in use. You may find this causes small, airborne dust particles to cling to the outer casing of the machine, including the outside of the cleaner bin. This can be easily removed using a soft, dry cloth.

It sounds as if your DC14 is working as intended, but if you'd like any further advice please call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Dust goes to filter

is the canister sealing properly? The air enters the canister under high pressure and it should slow down greatly in there so the heavier (dust) particles will fall to the bottom of the canister and the air should then pass through the filter under a reduced pressure. If the air is easily escaping the canister area without slowing down the dust cannot settle. It should look like a cyclone in the canister, if it's not swirling in one direction but rather bouncing around, look at the inlet to the canister for build up or an obstruction also. If the canister is not sealing the the air will remain moving rapidly and carry the dust along with it. I would also check your filter for a tare along the seam.

Dyson isnt sucking from hose or the bottom, but gas plenty of suction @ connection to the catch canister. ?????

Your dyson is probably blocked up on the inside.
After a while all that dust a crud gets stuck inside the cyclone system and needs to be manually cleaned out.

Brushes on my roomba don't seem to be spinning.

Try running your roomba with the dust bin removed to see if the brushes turn. Take the brushes out and make sure they're clean. You may need to replace the brushes if they're worn. Failing that, you can find instructions on how to take your roomba apart. Take out the brush assembly and open the screws on the side of it to expose the gears that drive the brushes. There will probably be a lot of gunk in there jamming them up. You might need to check the motor too.

Vaccuum forms in hose- will not pick up dirt

Check your wand for a clog. The DC17 line has common clog issues in its wand. It may be difficult to remove but if you have a long skinny pole(like one for curtains) you can use that to remove the clog.

The filter probably needs a darn good clean. If it is clean, wipe the inside of the canister with a clean cloth to get rid of static.
