Reading this blog. Dyson is of little to no help. How disappointing when you spend a small fortune on one of their products. I'm just now experiencing hard to push with. DC25 Animal. Can't adjust height....


sorry to say your dyson is not the fault, its your carpet, a lot of new carpets have a tight weave pattern, this makes it impossible to push any vacuum. all new carpets have a directional pile always vacuum with the pile. The best option is to buy a auto drive kirby it does all he hard work for you. you can pick a refurbished one up for around 300

Is there a Dyson vacuum that Will work on high pile Mohawk carpet?


Patty,
I am not sure about any of the Dyson vacuums being able to handle that carpet. I work at an Oreck store on the weekends and I know that we have had several customers come in with the same question as yours and we recommend the Oreck Magnesium RS or any of the Miele vacuum cleaners. They have been tried out on Mohawk carpet and have been found to work well. Hope this helps!

We love our Dyson DC25 Animal but we just got new carpet and it's like pushing furniture around the room. I know it doesn't have a height adjustment but is there any other option?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your DC25 Animal on this particular type of carpeting. This sounds unusual especially as it worked effectively on your older carpeting. As DC25 is engineered to adjust automatically to different floor types and pile heights, there is unlikely to be an issue with the vacuum itself.

It may be worth checking directly with the carpet manufacturer for their guidance on caring for this specific type of flooring. Manufacturers will sometimes recommend vacuuming certain types of long-pile or delicate carpeting with the motorised brush bar turned off.

If you'd like any further guidance from our experts, you can reach us by calling the Dyson Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Bought a brand new dyson animal and it is impossible to push thru our new carpeting. I set to the highest pile but still can't push it. Seems fine on lesser pile carpeting.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your DC14 Animal on this particular carpet. It might help to check you have your brush control adjusted to the correct setting - you can find out how to do this in the user guide supplied with your cleaner. In case you don't have this to hand, you can download a copy here:

http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc14_opmanual_usa2007.pdf

You may also want to contact your carpet manufacturer to check it's suitable for cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush. Manufacturers sometimes recommend cleaning certain types of carpeting using suction only.

If you have any further queries about using or maintaining your Dyson vacuum cleaner, please get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to provide the information and assistance you need. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

All three (3) pile lights blink, the vacuum is also hard to push.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28 Animal. The pattern of indicator lights you've described suggests that you may need to reset the cleaner by turning it off for at least 30 seconds. If the cleaner feels hard to push, you may have the brushbar set at a level too low for the type of carpet you're trying to clean. I'd suggest setting it at the next available height on the selector pad.

If you have any further questions about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, or if you're unable to reset the cleaner, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can resolve this for you as quickly as possible. You can call us free on 1866MYDYSON.

I need help repairing my Dyson. I cannot push the buttons down to select Short pile/Medium pile or bare floor. The buttons will not push down at all. It will not allow me to select anything. I have very short pile carpet so it does not pick up that well.

dyson vacuums are not self propelled. and if you cannot push it on your carpet then the pile of your carpe is more than what the vacuum can handle.
