SOURCE: My dyson dc14 not sucking only from the hose

Hi- I have the same problem: suction fine, but the brushbar was not spinning. I went 1st to the Dyson site and went thru their troubleshooting guide and I'd done all those things, so I called Dyson (1-866-MY DYSON in the USA) and they walked me thru a very simple solution.

What worked was to "rest" the bare floor/carpet adjustment, and it's very easy! You do this by clicking the carpet to bare floor adjustment back and forth at least 5 times. Make sure when you end it's on carpet. Then tilt it back all the way from the upright position so it's flat on the floor and turn it onto it's left side. The carpet indicator should be below the word carpet. THAT WAS IT! As soon as I turned it on again, the brush bar is spinning great! I wish I could tell you right now how well it picks up, but unfortunately I took out the filter and rinsed it, so I have to wait until tomorrow to **** anything up. However, I'm sure it will work now that the brush bar is moving. Like I said, the suction was fine.

Just as an FYI--If you call, they will have you try other things to rule out other problems 1st. I had already done all the things suggested in their troubleshooting guide on their site and the only additional thing they asked me to try was to turn it on and tilt it back as though you are going to vacuum and make sure the suction from the top tube had stopped, as it normally does, and mine did.

Hope this helps!

Liz

SOURCE: Dyson DC14 animal shut down, now won't turn on

This coul;d be a couple thing, it could be that the machine is full and shut off due to a heat sensor. You should see if it has a reset button on it for the power head. I don't think it does so I would empty it out and clean the filter and try it again. Also did you try it in another plug in as you may have blown the breaker.also if the dirt container is not in just right it will not turn on as threre is a safety switch so it can not be run without the dirt container. Try these things and if you have npo luck write back and we will try again.

SOURCE: my dyson dc14 wont turn on at all

Hi I would suggest you first check the Fuse in the plug. This is quite common.

If after chnaging the fuse the machine still doesnt work then please come back to us. Let us know that you have checked the fuse andthe machine still wont switch on.

Im confident it will only be the fuse. Unless you have had strange noises or funny smells coming from the machine.

Won't turn off


It's highly probable that the Dyson power switch has gone bad.
You can buy dyson dc14 switch here.
The switch is located right behind the front covering of the neck or handle when you remove the telescopic wand. Please make sure that the vacuum is unplugged before you start this project.

Dyson dc14 brushes not turning


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.


I'm sorry to hear your DC14's brush bar isn't rotating. This could just mean that the brush control is set to 'Hard floors' rather than 'Carpets'. To check for this, please take a look at our Support guide:

If you'd like further advice after running through these checks, you can reach our freephone customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

My dyson dc14 all floors won't stay on when I press the power button. I can hold it down and it will work, but that makes cleaning very slow.


Quick Fix...takes 4 minutes max

Remove the switch by using instructions here:

http://www.sparesaver.com/vacuum-spares/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/dyson-dc14-technical-advice-474/replacing-the-cable.html

(The was an additional torx screw 3 " below the one in the directions...yours may have this too...just remove)

Then...While holding the body of the switch in one hand, use your other to hold both contacts between your thumb and forefinger and gently place pressure on each contact in the opposite direction, just like screwing a nut onto a bolt. Press the switch down while applying this torque and see if it sticks. If it does just bend the contacts slightly and continue pressing the switch to ensure it holds. Reinstall switch.

I still advise buying a switch from amazon for $4.00 and replacing it but this will help you to continue to use your vacuum in the meantime without having to hold the button...

The belt on my Dyson DC14 will not turn. How much will you charge to change the belt.


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're experiencing a problem with your Dyson. If your DC14 doesn't have a Brush Control option, you should be able to replace the belt yourself - you can find out how to do this here:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=635&product=DC14-SY-STD

If your DC14 has a Brush Control, try checking for and removing anything blocking the brush bar. You can find out how to do this here:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=668&product=DC14-ANIMAL

How to change the drive belt on a dyson dc14 allergy vacuum


Hi there,

There are 2 belts on a Dyson DC14 if the Dyson has a clutch. If it has a clutch you have a knob on the machine that turns the brushbar on and off. Most of the DC14s have this.

You are far better replacing the whole clutch and its not really too har a job to do.

Brush not turning


The belt doesn't have to be broken to be non-functioning. If the belt is intact but stretched it won't turn the brush. You can get belts here:
