SOURCE: 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.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties using your DC07 on this particular carpet. It might help to check you have your brush control adjusted to the 'Carpets' 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, here's an online copy:

    http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc07_opmanual_usa.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).

    Animal ball great on tiles but carnt push it on a thick carpet turn it off and it's fine but turned on no chance ,, get cheep vac out that's fine ,, head by the way not blocked all free


    Yes that's a nappy carpet verses long brushes, plus awesome suction. If you have a trigger to relieve suction a bit you will just have to nurse it. One direction of nap is always easier than the other. Eventually your Dyson will suck yourcarpet up, making it thinner, and the engine will tire and those long brushes will wear down and it will be just right

    My Shark Navigator works very well, great suction. However, it is very hard to push on carpet. Can this be adjusted?


    Two things make carpet vacing easier. First is the floor piece. It should be a smooth slight rounded shaped piece with just a small line of bristles or none at all. Second is mostly for area rugs is to open the suction vent usually located near the handle. That allows some air in which takes suction away from the floor piece allowing it to slide on the rug rather than drag it around.

    There is too much suction even with the hand tools on Hoover wind tunnel. Can i adjust suction somehow?


    Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

    If there is too much suction, adjust the nozzle control knob to a higher setting. The knob is located on the front of the vacuum at the bottom. For optimal cleaning efficiency a low setting should be used for most types of carpet and for hardwood floors, tile, and deep carpets use a higher setting.

    Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


    lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down
