Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a dyson DC65, It is so hard to push across the carpet it almost impossible to use. Its an automatic adjustment but it really is a joke. You need to be a weight lifter to push the vacuum. Any ideas on how to make it work.

SOURCE: dyson - can't push the vacuum

try to see if the carpet setting is to carpet. i know this machine says that its a life time belt,but i would check this just in case. best way to tell if it's working is to lay the machine on its belly with the brushes pointing up and turn on the machine to see if the brushes are turning. (be careful not to put your face directly in front, just in case something is lodged in the brush and flies out )

SOURCE: Smartstrand carpet makes vacuums difficult to push

The seam problem could be an installation problem. It is important to pattern match any carpet with a pattern. If the carpet is a plush carpet, the seams should not be invisible, but not unsightly. If he carpet is a frieze, the seams should be hard to find. Any variance from these norms could mean a redo of the seams by a talented carpet installer. In a large room such as yours seams will never be invisible.
Good Luck, carpetguru

Sure, on the side of the machine you will have a knob, you can use this to tuirn the brushbar off and have suction only.

SOURCE: The vacuum has worked fine

The 'automatic' height adjustment consists of front wheels on a swivel mechanism that is forced up or down according to how high or low you are holding the vacuum. So, if you are holding the vacuum at a height for normal operation by it's very design it will be forced into the carpet too deeply which the belt cannot handle, thus breaking it in record time. "The only way I was able to rectify this was by shoving a piece of cardboard under the wheels at an ideal height that would still pick up dirt but not bear down onto to the carpet!"------- ------ In some cases the belt breaks and brush stops working.So inspect the belt and brush too.Sometimes its the broken belt or stuck-up brush problem causing this.--------- It's usually the belt that causes the brush to stop . What happens is, over time the belt will get hot, which causes the belt to stretch. Once the belt stretches out, it becomes too long, and will stop the brush from spinning when it feels any resistance to the brushes. This is most likely why the brush is stopping when you put it down on the carpet.---------- Getting this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

If your Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 upright vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be from carpets or hard floors, this may be due to a blockage. A blockage could occur if an item too big for the machine has been accidentally vacuumed up.

After turning off and unplugging the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video to locate and remove any obstructions from the cleaner head, internal hose or changeover valve.

Why is it such hard work to hoover the carpet with the dyson dc 33.it is really hard just pushing it across a new carpet.


Are your belts working and is your power head set too low? Try raising it up one or two clicks. A broken belt will not let your brushes spin and a spinning brush will help it go on carpets.

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC41 is engineered and tested to work across a wide range of hard and carpeted floor types. The soleplate adjusts automatically for optimum performance, and the brush bar can be switched off to protected hard floors, delicate rugs or long pile carpet.

We're keen to take some additional details about your DC41 and the particular carpeting you're having difficulty with - we may have some suggestions that will help. We'll also check your particular DC41 is working as well as it should be.

When you have your DC41 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).

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end


Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

Dyson suddenly hard to push on carpet


I know this sounds silly, but it works. Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it (off the plastic on the bottom that rubs on the carpet as you push and pull it). I thought my husband was out of his mind when he told me that was the solution, but it really works.
