Hi Keith, it's Jack at Dyson.

If you're unable to close the bin base after emptying your vacuum, it sounds like something is incorrectly fitted or missing. Please ensure the clear bin is firmly attached to the cyclone pack, and that there is no visible damage to the clear bin, the bin base or the cyclone pack.

If you're still not sure, it's probably best if you contact our experts directly so they can take you through some quick troubleshooting checks. We may be able to resolve this issue right over the phone. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

SOURCE: Dyson dc14 vacuum cleaner ,the power, off-on switch does not work

Take it back - the power on switch button sounds like its being tempramental and it shouldn't do that. It would have to be repaired.

SOURCE: dyson DC 14 lost suction to beater bar/ suction to hose/stick

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.

SOURCE: Can the canister be washed on a Dyson dc 14? I

the removable part that has the dirt in it can be washed but do not wash the parts that it covers. You could wipe the piece that it covers but do not get water up inside of it whatever you do. You will almost surely void the warranty if it has water damage and you needed to take it in for something. good luck
P.S. you can also wash the foam filter but do not wash the hepa filter.

How do I FIX MY DYSON DC14 VACUUM


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC14 - it sounds like this spring may have come out of the clip which secures the Telescope Reach wand in place. Normally the spring will locate behind the clip, keeping the wand locked securely onto the main body of the vacuum until you remove it for above-floor cleaning.

We'd be happy to talk you through replacing the spring - if you have further difficulty in doing this, you would also be able to order a replacement wand if needed.

When you have your DC14 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

DYSON DC14 DUST ON OUTSIDE OF THE CANISTER SEEMS TO BE STATIC DUST BUT WHY IS IT THERE?


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).

Hi Jane,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14. If the cyclone assembly doesn't seem to fit securely in place, you might find it helps to check the user guide supplied with your machine to make sure everything is correctly assembled and positioned. In case you don't have this to hand, you can download a copy here:

Our Animal DC14 hose unraveled, can we replace it?


Yes you can replace the hose youself. First buy the hose (through Dyson directly or google to see a list of online retailers). All you'd need to do is to unhook the hose from the bottom - you'll remove the canister/dirt bin and push the lower cord hook/cup off the back of the machine from the front and simply click the new hose into place.

It sounds like the canister is not put together right.. double check that.. Also,
make sure you line up the "red lines" and snap into place.
